The New York Knicks buried the Washington Wizards under an avalanche of three-pointers Saturday night en route to a 117-99 victory. They shot an absurd 24-52 from beyond the arc. Those 24 made threes would have been a single-game franchise record in the regular season.

RJ Barrett hit only one of four attempts from inside the arc, but shot 4-8 from three on his way to a 18-point night. But it was his defense on All-Star Bradley Beal that really stood out.

Derrick Rose (15 points, 8 assists) feasted on the Wizards’ second unit. I was actually surprised how hard the Wizards played for a preseason game, and they have some interesting bench pieces, but Rose carved them up regardless.

Before Rose sat for good, the reserve backcourt of him, Immanuel Quickley and Alec Burks were basically on some Harlem Globetrotters shit.

Obi Toppin didn’t score in the first half, but contributed 13 points in the second half to help put the game away.

Even Kevin Knox got in on the action, with 12 points!

Good win. Would watch again. Recap to come.
