CP3, Clippers Bench Too Much For Knicks
Final Score: Clippers 102, Knicks 88
Record: 32-17 (1st in Atlantic, 2nd in Eastern Conference)
Current Streak: Lost 1
Too much Chris Paul, too much Clipper bench.
And we thought the Knicks were a deep team? Jeez, Bledsoe and Crawford are a tough duo.
LA Bench 48 points, Knicks Bench 15.
Gotta give LA credit, played a great game and withstood a 42 point effort from Melo.
Post Game Knotes:
- Sorry JR, Crawford showed why he is the 6th man of the year this year. Simply, he’s been consistent. There has been too many up and down games from JR this season and today was one of those down ones.
- This defense doesn’t look like anything like it was in the beginning of the season. Something has to change.
- Felton’s injury looked pretty bad, but he bounced back. Took a STAT forearm to the throat and a neck wrench from Lamar Odom right after.
- Novak with an extra awful defensive outing out there. Yea, he is only supposed to be a shooter, but as an NBA player.. you can’t just GIVE up points over and over to the opposing team. It was like the Clips were playing 6 on 4 with him out there.
- When was the last time Jason Kidd hit a three pointer? Law of averages in full effect right now.
- In the pre game key matchup, had Chandler in there… not the best game from Tyson. Fumbled a lot of passes near the basket.
Over/Under Game Results: WE FINALLY HAVE A WINNER! Congrats to magic50zz on going 5 for 5. You were close on so many games, finally got one to go! Good job man.
- Chris Paul 6 Assists: Over (7)
- Billups 10 Points: Under (8)
- Melo 27 Points: Over (42)
- Jordan 10 Rebounds: Under (3)
- Crawford 15 Points: Over (27)
Glad someone finally won one of these, haha.
Next up, Toronto on Wednesday.
KNOTEWORHTY KNICK OF THE GAME: Even though he disappeared in the 4th (only 4 of his 42 in the quarter), still have to give it to Melo. Grant Hill did a great job on him in the 4th - 42 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block
