The New York Knicks finally got home to MSG this week — not necessarily a blessing given that they had lost their last five home games in a row. But took care of business Wednesday night, blasting an inferior, tanking Portland Trail Blazers squad, 128-98.
As usual, RJ Barrett led the way, with 31 points on 10-20 shooting (5-11 from three), four rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block. The scoring was nice, but I was perhaps most impressed with the passing. Check out this alley-oop to Obi Toppin.
How about another oop to Obi.
Not to be outdone, check out Obi throwing the oop to fellow big man Jericho Sims!
Obi (13 points on 6-10 shooting) was nice. Immanuel Quickley (18 points 4-5 shooting!!!) was nicer. Evan Fournier had 14 points on 5-10 shooting and a season-high six assists. Seriously, the Knicks has one of their best passing games of the season.
Good win. Recap to come.
