Spurs 100, Knicks 91: Scenes from a boring loss with at least one cool, swirly bucket

Spurs win.

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at New York Knicks Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that certainly was...something. The New York Knicks lost to the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night by a score of 100-91. The ‘Bockers led throughout most of the first half, but San Antoino stormed back to take a three-point lead at halftime. New York came out flat as hell offensively in the third quarter, and Jeff Hornacek went into his bag of tricks to pull out some especially wacky lineup combos. I’m talking Ramon Sessions/Jarrett Jack backcourt-level wacky

Just when Hornacek seemed to call off the dogs, inserted Willy Hernangomez into the game midway through the fourth, the Spurs missed roughly 12,000,000 shots in a row. The Knicks couldn’t capitalize, however, as they had scoring problems of their own pretty much through the final three quarters (they did score 29 in the first, though!). The comeback was half-assed even by the standards of fake Knicks’ comebacks.

The highlight of this game was clearly this ring-around-the-rosie shot from Michael Beasley. Look at it go!

Otherwise, this game was kind of a snooze-fest. Recap to come.
