The New York Knicks lost to the Utah Jazz Wednesday night by the score of 112-104. The Jazz smacked around New York’s starting lineup to start, quickly building a double-digit lead.

But they had no answer for the Bobby Portis Show in the first half. Ol’ Crazy Eyes had 19 points before the break, pretty much single-handedly keeping the Knicks in the game.

The Knicks actually got the deficit down to three points early in the third quarter, but the Jazzmen eventually re-imposed their will upon the starters, and expanded their lead to 20. And that was pretty much all she wrote. Don’t be fooled by the final score: Elfrid Payton went hog wild in the final few minutes with the game out of reach. I’m not posting any of his highlights because I really dislike him. Julius Randle had 32 points, but same deal.

RJ Barrett didn’t have a good shooting night (14 points on 5-12 shooting), but he did have five assists.

Frank Ntilikina had a slam dunk, which was cool.

This game was uneventful, and we’re all a little busy tonight, so there will be no recap. Get some rest, friends.
