The Goodman League will take on all comers. Well, except the Drew League again. But all other comers.
Just days after agreeing to a game against the Rucker Park league, the Goodman League has agreed to a deal to take on the Indianapolis Pro-Am, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Chris Palmer.
Indy is supposed to roll out a team that includes Eric Gordon, Zach Randolph and George Hill. Goodman will counter with Kevin Durant and friends.
Durant has been at seemingly every pro-am game this summer, taking the Nike “basketball never sleeps” slogan a little too seriously. Still, this one in Indy should be fun.
If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.
But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.
Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
We had an efficient Carmelo Anthony sighting in the preseason.
Anthony and the Knicks went up against the Wizards and ‘Melo hit 10-of-15 shots to score 21 points. He also had four rebounds and four assists.
Derrick Williams had 23 points on 11 shots to lead the Knicks in scoring, and New York won 115-104.
