Knicks guard R.J. Barrett had a different idea – though only when prodded about how he’d view the season if New York doesn’t get past the first round.
RJ Barrett on how the Knicks will view their season if the series ends tonight:

Why you got to be so negative? I ain’t thinking about that. We’re winning tonight. I’m not thinking about that. C’mon, bro. Stupid-ass question.
The question was pretty ill-timed. It’s unsurprising Barrett didn’t want to consider losing. He’s focused on winning Game 5 tonight.
Plus, Barrett’s irritation probably stems less from the question and more from how he and the Knicks have been playing.
