Knicks Easily Handle Davis-less Hornets, Move to 8-1
Final Score: Knicks 102, Hornets 80
Current Streak: Won 2
In the words of Iman Shumpert, add the Hornets to the list of the teams that have been #taped.
New Orleans had very little chance of beating the Knicks with Davis in the line up, but with him out… no chance.
New York used an early barrage of 3-pts and never really looked back. There was a slight scare when that kid Roberts came in and knocked down like 20 3-pts in a row… but after the half, complete lock down by the defense.
Novak…. where the hell did your shot go!
What 2 Watch
- Only one rookie was able to play - Austin Rivers is not having the best season shooting the ball. 28% sucks… but he does have a boat load of talent.
- Another game that we only committed 10 turnovers. Coaches are going to be really fit by the end of the season.
James White actually got into the game and had a pretty nice break away dunk.
Next up, Mavs tomorrow night.
(it’s kind of weird to think NY is the best team in the league right now)
KNOTEWORTHY KNICK OF THE GAME: Carmelo Anthony. NOH didn’t have much of an answer for him. Sat out the entire fourth quarter after putting in major work the first three - 29 points (19 in the first quarter), 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
