Timberwolves 103, Knicks 92: Mitchell Robinson blocked Derrick Rose

Who cares what else happened?

NBA: New York Knicks at Minnesota Timberwolves Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

What a load of stinky poop. The New York Knicks faced off against a Minnesota Timberwolves team that played an overtime game the previous evening and was missing their top two scorers, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Did the ‘Bockers compete against this desiccated husk of a roster? Hell no. They fell behind by 10 at halftime and by as much as 20 in the second halftime before “rallying” for a 103-92 loss. What a crappy team.

OK, so it wasn’t all bad. Damyean Dotson had 26 points and a team-high 6 assists. Kevin Knox had 13 points on an efficient (for Knox, anyway) 5-11 shooting. He also pitched in 4 assists, so that’s cool. And Mitchell Robinson had a typical Mitch line: 8 points, 10 rebounds, 5 blocks. Let’s view some of them, shall we?

That last block came against Derrick Rose, whom I still hate, so I’m going to chalk this night up as a victory.

Finally, cheers to Emmanuel “Best Passer on the Team” Mudiay, who pitched in ONE assist and FIVE turnovers. Bring back Kadeem Allen, please.

Miranda’s on the recap.
