Knicks Handle Pistons in Shump’s Debut
Final Score: Knicks 102, Piston 87
Current Streak: Won 2
"Giddy" would be the most accurate word to describe myself while watching Shumpert play. It was quiet clear, he was not thinking about his knee at all.
The attempted dunk, the steals, the aggressiveness, attacking the basket, shooting.. Shump was showing it all off today.
The Pistons aren’t a very good team… so this was pretty much the perfect game for him to ease on back.
Post Game Knotes:
- Amar’e had his best offensive game since coming back - the defense is still really suspect… but, that’s the story of his career: 17 points, 4 rebounds. The jump shot looks nice
- Speaking of Amar’e nice ovation for him from the London crowd when he entered the game, kind of surprised me.
- Chandler did a great job limited Monroe, help to him to only 11 points.
- 16 total turnovers. I blame it on the travel and playing in front of a new crowd.
- Melo was Melo - 26 points.
Over/Under Game Results: No Winners
- Shumpert 15 Minutes: 15 - Push
- Melo 30 Points: 26 - Under
- Monroe 3 Assists: 5 - Over
- Drummond 2 Blocks: 2 - Push
- Shumpert 2 Steals: 1 - Under
Knicks put on a good show for a potential NBA city down the line.
This team’s depth is scary good once everyone is healthy.
KNOTEWORHTY KNICK OF THE GAME: Who else? Iman Shumpert - 8 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block, 1 steal
