Here is one last look a back at the draft that was in the NBA.
The big story of the night was actually the Nets/Celtics trade that sends Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn, and Kay Adams and I talk about why I like that for the Nets.
Also, I like what Philly did getting Nerlens Noel, they are taking steps back to take big steps forward.
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.
