Knicks 117, Blazers 93: Scenes from Mitch and Frank’s masterpiece

A great night for the future against a ghost of the past

I really don’t even know where to start right now.

First: the Knicks won tonight. Nay, they dominated. New York crushed the Blazers in the second half, at home, opening the new decade by smushing the team featuring their most prominent player of the last decade, 117-93.

Second: Mitchell Robinson is inhuman. He tied both his career-high in points (22) and the Knicks’ record for most field goals made without a miss in a single game (11) in one game. Somehow, despite making only 11 baskets, he dunked the ball 5,000 times.

Third: Frank Ntilikina clearly resolved to dominate 2020. Nine points, 10 assists, two blocks and a steal for Frank in this game. He was huge.

This dunk by the French Prince almost gave me a heart attack:

Fourth: Reggie Bullock came back from freaking spine surgery and dropped 11 points and three triples like it was nothing. No rust at all. The Knicks might have another real player here.

Fifth: OK actually let’s take a break. That’s enough to sate you for now. Drool over these highlights. I have to go probably write a recap and also record Locked On Knicks. Oh, and I’m about to be on KnicksFanTV so check that shit out too:

To steal from my favorite baseball team: Let’s Fucking Go Knicks.
