Look, tonight was embarrassing. No doubt. The Knicks held a 27-point lead at one point behind Tim Hardaway Jr.’s 32 first-half points, but then (as Mike Breen mentioned a zillion times) blew the biggest lead in recorded franchise history to lose by five. The Knicks!
But hey, let’s bask in the spoils of a first half victory, and bathe in the cleansing waters of being one loss closer to Luka Doncic. It’s kinda like getting a gratifying win and a much-needed loss all packaged in one!
Here’s some of Hardaway’s highlights:

But yeah, then they lost. To which I say, so what? Eighth in the tank standings is within shouting distance! Life’s good right now considering the Knicks are objectively going nowhere the rest of this year.
Miranda will wax about this beautifully ugly one for you guys in a bit. Discuss away!
