Knicks Fall to Nets, Finish Season Series 2-2
Final Score: Nets 88, Knicks 85
Record: 25-14 (1st in Atlantic, 2nd in Eastern Conference)
Current Streak: Lost 1
If these two teams meet in the playoffs.. boy that’s going to be a great series.
Gotta hand it to Joe Johnson. He hit a pretty tough jumper to put the Nets up by 1 late in the game.
JR Smith had a pretty good quote after the game: “Two and two against them stinks.”
That pretty much sums up my feelings.
Post Game Knotes:
- These slow first quarters are killing us.
- Am I the only one that has a queasy feeling in their stomach while watching Shumpert cut and play defense? I just stare directly at his knee, worried.
- Any one else notice the nice chemistry between STAT and Melo? BUT (and this is a big one), if Stoudemire keeps fumbling Melo’s passes, Melo going to start thinking twice throwing it to him.
- Did JR smith steal Westbrook’s/Noah’s gun shot celebration?
- Don’t look now, the Knicks are only 1 game up on the Nets for first in the Atlantic
- Knicks took care of the ball today, only 5 turnovers..
- 6 for 21 on threes…. not going to cut it.
Over/Under Game Results: No Winners
- Evans 12 Rebounds: Under (9)
- Deron 7 Assists: Over (12)
- Shumpert 10 Points: Under (2)

welp…. Knicks in Boston on Thursday night. Expect to see hear some “honey nut cheerio” chants.
KNOTEWORTHY KNICK OF THE GAME: Melo… just needed a few more points out of you. Nice job passing the ball today though - 29 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 block
