The SummerKnicks are on a roll!

Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin are looking WAY too good for this level of competition, and Miles “Deuce” McBride just had his own coming out party last game when he shot 6-6 from three and played some of the most ferocious defense I’ve ever seen at the Summer League level.

Tonight, he gets a prime target to destroy — Detroit’s Cade Cunningham, the top pick in the draft, which means Deuce needs to humiliate him and make him cry in front of a national audience. Maybe tonight will be the night that Quentin Grimes finds the range, too — it seems like each game a new Knick asserts themselves with a great performance, while nobody else takes a step back. Summer League title, here we come!

The game tips at 8 PM on NBA TV. Be excellent to one another in the comments. And let’s watch the Knicks get to 3-1!
