Trail Blazers 111, Knicks 87: Scenes from the merciful end to the West Coast swing


NBA: New York Knicks at Portland Trail Blazers Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks ended the West Coast portion of their road trip as you’d expect, falling to the Portland Trail Blazers by a score of 111-87.

It was a tale of point guard futility for the Knicks, as Frank Ntilikina (2-7, 6 points), Emmanuel Mudiay (1-9, 3 points) and Trey Burke (2-12, 4 points) all struggled to score. You may be surprised to learn that Damian Lillard (10-18, 37 points) did not struggle to score.

Frank did end the first half with a bucket. He would, sadly, miss all of his field goal attempts in the second half.

@frank_ntilikina to close out the first half, count it

This sequence was probably the highlight of the game: a block by Kyle O’Quinn, a sweet pass by Michael Beasley and a strong finish by Troy Williams.

Yung Beazy finally got his offensive game going a bit, finishing with 16 points on 8-13 shooting.
