When the Spurs Patty Mills went down with an injury and was out the rest of the NBA Finals we were bummed for one key reason — his bench towel waiving was unmatched on the game’s biggest stage.
We love a good bench reaction at PBT, and this compilation from NBA.com includes our favorite from this past season — Robert Sacre of the Lakers — but a host of other quality sideline celebrations. We watched it and were entertained, so we’re bringing it to you. Because it’s summer and we should be entertained, and the Lone Ranger sure isn’t cutting it in that department.
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.
