As they say, all good things must come to an end, and that’s never more true than with the New York Knicks.
Going for what would’ve surely been a franchise-record fourth straight win, the Knicks couldn’t quite get it done after taking a 10-point lead into the half against the Suns, losing 120-112 to start off a four-game west coast swing.
As usual, it wasn’t all bad. Bobby Portis came off the bench and lit up the Suns, continuing his recent stretch of efficient offense. He finished with 20 points in 20 minutes on 7-10 shooting.

Mitchell Robinson did his thang as usual with nine points, seven rebounds and three blocks off the bench.
Marcus Morris had 25 points on 8-16 shooting as well, heating up in the second half.

Unfortunately, Devin Booker had 38, Kelly Oubre had 29 and Aron Baynes had 20 for the Suns, which proved to be too much for the Knicks.
Honestly I’m pretty spent because I’m battling a bad case of the flu right now, so I’m gonna sign off. But MMiranda will have a recap for you guys soon.
