Knicks 105, Bulls 98: Scenes from BOBBY PORTIS KICKING ASS

Like, holy shit, that was a hell of an ending to the game. The Knicks went down by approximately 47 points in the first quarter, but managed to get close on the back of Bobby Portis. Then Fizdale for some reason subbed Bobby out, the Knicks went down by eight, and all seemed lost. Then Fizdale put Bobby back in, and Bobby destroyed his former team on his home floor!!!

Bobby played just as crazy as his eyes look, shooting 4-4 from three down the stretch and singlehandedly dismantling the Bulls with 28 point, 11 boards, two assists and two steals:

Bobby wasn’t just good on offense, he did everything on both ends. It was absolutely wild to see this dude at his absolute best.

RJ Barrett should not be forgotten either. The rook continued to impress with 19 points, 15 rebounds and five assists on the night. His free throw shooting has been ugly, but if that’s the most we can find to complain about right now, awesome.

Julius Randle finished with 13 points and 14 boards, despite kind of hijacking the offense at times again. Frank Ntilikina was 0-6 from the field, but closed the game and played some great defense. Kevin Knox had 14 points as was as big of a part of the Knicks getting the game close again as Portis was at finally snatching victory for the home team.

Hell of a way to get that first win of the season. Y’all are in for a treat, because MMiranda is in on the recap tonight. In the meantime, check out postgame live with KnicksFanTV:
