The New York Knicks got matinee smacked by the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, 132-106. Believe it or not, this was a competitive game for a little while...about one half. The Knicks didn’t totally “Third Quarter of Doom” this game—Toronto only outscored them by 8 in the third—but when you face the league’s best bench, those deficits tend to get out of control late. Ah well.
Tim Hardaway started a beef with Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka in the second quarter, then hit a tough jumper over Serge just before the half.
Then he helped off Malcolm Miller, who hit a three at the buzzer. Such is life.
Emmanuel Mudiay did his “play pretty well in the second half” thing again. He also made a sweet dish to Kyle O’Quinn.
Luke Kornet scored a career-high 18 points, topping the 11 he scored the last time the Knicks faced the Raptors. Dude really loves playing the Raptors! His teammates? Eh, not so much.
Recap to come.
