The fine folks at NBA.com put together a blooper reel from this past season, and it seemed like the one thing that might make Mavericks and Knicks fans smile today. So here you go.
I mean, it’s got Dwight Howard eating a cookie, Blake Griffin’s airball free throws, Vince Carter’s vintage travel and more. But Nick Young’s airball layup should have been No. 1.
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.
