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?

Mudiay may suck... but Mitchell is a MONSTER. #5 on the night for Robinson. pic.twitter.com/xD47tQpZB4— It’s a Hard Knicks Life (@HardKnicksLife) March 11, 2019
Mitchell Robinson just blocked the crap out of D-Rose for his second block of the night, and I'm happy now pic.twitter.com/7GK9C7pX6s— Posting and Toasting (@ptknicksblog) March 11, 2019
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.
