So let’s get this right on outta the way:

So there ya go. This might be the last Knicks game for a while. Before we go anywhere further, stay safe everyone. Wash your damn hands. If you feel sick, take medicine. If it gets worse, go to the doctor. That’s it.

As far as the Knicks are concerned, well, the above news broke sometime late in the fourth quarter when the Knicks were in the process of blowing an 18-point fourth quarter before eventually having overtime forced on them and coming out with the W.

Julius Randle dropped 33 points on 13-22 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds, actually making some pretty damn clutch shots when the game was on the line. Too bad nobody was really paying attention because of the breaking news, but I digress.

RJ Barrett also showed out, proving that both he AND Randle can most definitely get buckets in the same game. The rook had 26 points on 9-14 shooting, five rebounds, four assists and two steals. He also had maybe the most clutch 3-pointer of his career so far.

Mitchell Robinson also had 16 points on 7-7 shooting and two blocked shots, giving us some highlights to last in case the Knicks aren’t back for a little while.

Frank Ntilikina cooled off a bit after his hot night on Tuesday, but still managed eight points, four rebounds and two assists. Kevin Knox came alive, dropping in 12 points and shooting 3-3-3 from three. Elfrid Payton had 11 points and 12 assists.

MMiranda will have a more eloquent take about all of this later I’m sure. If this was in fact the last game of the season, it’s been a pleasure. But again, for now, just stay safe everyone. Don’t let symptoms go untreated, and hopefully we’ll all be alright.
