The Knicks led the lowly 76ers by 10 with 2:20 left.
New York also started a point guard who went AWOL for the last game, had lost eight of nine and had already blown a 17-point lead earlier in the game.
In other words, the Knicks can’t have good – or apparently, even decent – things.
Philadelphia guard T.J. McConnell ensured that with his game-winning turnaround jumper as time expired, giving the 76ers a 98-97 win. McConnell got the shot after Kristaps Porzingis air-balled a 3-pointer, and Philadelphia pushed the ball rather than call timeout.
The Grizzlies lost for the 15th time in their last 16 games, a 25-point drubbing at home against the Heat, last night.
But it wasn’t all doom and gloom in Memphis.
This young fan – while playing in the halftime scrimmage – stopped his dribble, stepped on the ball, whipped off his youth jersey to reveal a Marc Gasol jersey, flexed, re-started his dribbled then drove for a basket.
Matt Ellentuck of SB Nation:
The Grizzlies don’t deserve this hero.
For better or worse, DeMarcus Cousins is moody.
Just after getting dunked on by Clint Capela, Cousins showed his frustration by pushing Trevor Ariza after a whistle. The Pelicans center got his NBA-leading ninth technical foul – automatic suspension triggered at No. 16 – but I’m surprised this didn’t escalate beyond just that.
The Thunder suffered a rough home loss to the Hornets, but at least Oklahoma City produced a couple fun highlights.
Not only did Russell Westbrook have this powerful dunk, Paul George put the moves on Jeremy Lamb.
