Timberwolves 118, Knicks 108: Scenes from a game even Tim Hardaway couldn’t save

New, comments

Painful second half.

The New York Knicks kept it close in the first half against the Minnesota Timberwolves with a style that was strangely foreign (Tim Hardaway Jr. returned and had them pushing the pace at times) and yet eerily familiar (they hit mid-range jumpers at an unsustainably high clip). The Wolves came out with bully ball to start the third, with Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson muscling up and giving the Wolves the lead.

But the Knicks kept it close in the third thanks to our old friend Timmy, who hit some of these cool new shots that actually count for THREE points.

Sadly, it all went sideways early in the fourth quarter, as the Wolves kept hitting these so-called “three-point shots” while the Knicks...ah, who cares. 118-108, Wolves.

Let us rejoice, however, in the return of Timmy, who scored 16 points on 6-13 shooting.

Michael Beasley put together some highlights, as he usually does.

All in all, it was a trash game from a trash team. Recap to come.
