What a terrible effort by the Knicks tonight. On a night where their other superstar Amar’e Stoudemire came back from injury, their simply was no effort, no sense of urgency, and no energy from the Knicks tonight.
The Knicks got manhandled on the boards 52-32 and got outhustled to loose balls. The Cavs waltzed down the lane untouched for easy baskets too many time in this game.
The Knick offense was simply out of sync all night until the fourth quarter when they scored 34 point which matched their output of the entire first half.
Mike Bibby is the only Knick I would say played above average as he scored 12 points on 4-5 from three point range to go along with 4 assists, 2 steals, and a block.
Toney Douglas did show something in the fourth quarter as they cut into the lead with 6 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists. He is still struggling from the outside as he was 0-3 from 3. It’s never a good sign when Toney Douglas is the leading rebounder on the team. More
