The New York Knicks stumbled and bumbled into Phoenix losers of three straight games. As bad as the ‘Bockers are, however, the Suns suck worse. New York poured it on to start the game, survived a second-quarter run, pulled away again, and went to their stopper to finish off Phoenix, 107-85.
So who is the Knicks’ stopper? I’m referring, of course, to Trey Burke. The former G Leaguer had 16 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter as the Knicks turned what still appeared to be a competitive game into a laugher.
Kristaps Porzingis made only one shot in the first half, but flaxed his mighty Unicorn muscles in the third quarter en route to 19 points on a tidy 6-11 shooting.
Enes Kanter went hog wild from the opening whistle, scoring 14 points in the opening frame. He ended up with 20 points and 10 rebounds.
Recap to come. Victory!
