Clippers 128, Knicks 105: Scenes from the second half of doom

That was lame.

NBA: New York Knicks at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks played a decent first half Friday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. Wait, let me take that back...the Knicks didn’t play that well, but they did an exceptional job of hitting threes. But the Clippers are in the playoff hunt for a reason, and they chomped down on the Knicks like a pack of feral wolverines in the second half.

New York actually held a three-point lead at halftime, but the Clips erased that with a three on their first possession of the third. That, a Knicks turnover, and a fastbreak layup on the other end marked pretty much the end of competitive basketball on the evening. Los Angeles finished the quarter with a 14-point lead and never looked back from there: 128-105 is your final score.

If you’re looking for highlights, young 10-day contractor Troy Williams had himself a nice throw-down.

Frank Ntilikina didn’t play his best game, but he didn’t barrel through the paint for this sweet and-one floater.

And that’s about it. Recap to come.
