Knicks Swat Hornets, End Three Game Skid
Final Score: Knicks 100, Hornets 87
Current Streak: Won 1
Copeland stepped up.
Priggie Smalls stepped up.
The Knicks defense stepped up.
After a slow start (blame the 12PM tipoff), the Knicks found their rhythm late in the second quarter and never looked back.
Losing streak over.
Post Game Knotes:
- The Knicks looked a lot better with the two point guard set, with Prigioni running the sets.
- JR Smith looked… off. Seemed like he was in a bad mood or something.
- Copeland ended the game with 22 points on 9-15 shooting. Not a bad outing picking up JR’s scoring slack.
- Brewer, how do you pass up that layup? Wide open and you kick the ball out for three? One too many passes there.
- Although the ball movement was much better today (24 assists), Melo is still a little resistant kicking out of the double-team. I think he forgot how well the Knicks were playing when he was doing that earlier in the season.
- To quote someone on twitter - Austin Rivers is doo doo
- Three ball was a factor again (was missing that the past few), Knicks knocked down 11 today.
- STAT’s looking better and better with each game. I really like this bench role for him.
- I can’t look at Anthony Davis without thinking about the GIF of his eyebrow flying away.
Over/Under Game Results: No winners
- Davis 2 Blocks: Under (1)
- Melo 30 Points: Under (27)
- Vazquez 8 Assists: Under (8)
- Novak 2 Threes: Over (3)
- Chandler 10 Rebounds: Over (14)
How about my pre-game score prediction there? Guessed the Knicks score right, was only one bucket off on the Hornets total.
Knicks win the season series against the Hornets 2-0.
KNOTEWORHTY KNICK OF THE GAME: Pablo Prigioni - not huge numbers, but he really settled down the team. Ran the offense much better than Kidd - who has been uncharacteristically un-Kidd like the past few games with a bunch of lousy turnovers - 8 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal.
