What Jim Dolan's Knicks Did This Weekend While You Were Drinking in Hoboken, NJ.
Friday: Knicks choke on Hawks, 99-93. And, reports are that it tasted like choking on chicken. Though a six-point loss on the road almost seems like a positive this season this one was tough to take. It was another squandered chance in a game that could have been meaningful. It was yet another contest where the Knicks were in control right up until it mattered. Mike Bibby ran the offense for the Hawks one-possession-at-a-time when all that mattered was that one possession. Meanwhile the Knicks showed themselves incapable of playing with poise or purpose 24-seconds at a time.
Saturday: Magic defeat Knicks, 118-92. Dwight "Superman" Howard took our interior players to the wood-shed and treated them like Zod, Ursa and Non in Superman II.
Howard had such an easy time against Curry and co. that he was wistfully remembering the days when some guy named Randolph Morris used to give him a good game back in high school. Randolph Morris? Why does that name sound so familiar...
