The losses at home may be flowing like the Hudson River, but the Knicks still have moments and performances that leave hope for the future. One of the shining moments for New York last night was the emphatic dunk by Smith Jr. in the first quarter.
The key to the win was a strong first quarter and strong fourth quarter performance. New York jumped out to an early 14-0 lead to set the tone in the first quarter.
Tonight was the clash between two of the premier tanking teams in the NBA. In the blue corner was the New York Knicks, leading the Zion Williamson standings with an appalling record of 10-45. In the red corner was the Cleveland Cavaliers with a dreadful record of 11-45.
