    Appears we're killing them with our bench. Hey if another team is bent on being worse at basketball, well what can you do. Even the Hawks look like they may win today...SIGH!

    Beautiful feed to MB on the break by Knits. KP block and this game is over...

    Knits with one of his best games of the season.... Maybe Burke’s arrival sparked something....

    Again, the only possible way NYK was losing this game was resting KP. A responsible organization looking towards the future would’ve rested KP. We all know his play recently warranted such a rest. These types of wins remove the Westbrook and Curry type prospects from your grasp, and you end up selecting Hill and Sweetney type bums.

    KP punctuates the win with a thunderous, rim-rocking jam. A rare 4th quarter dominance from NY. KP 8-11 shooting.

    We may see more of a Nits Baker backcourt, both playing excellent D and are a +41 combined this game

    Like we literally could've picked up a game against the whole conference. We're amazing at being intentionally mediocre

    I called this in the Burke thread. Hornacek would rather not play Burke unless he absolutely has to

    Ntikikina, Baker, McDermott, KP, Beasley with a nice 4th quarter together

    Ntikikina 3 rebounds away from a triple double. Where did this come from? Maybe Nets just that bad?

    KP scores 26 on 14 shots. Finally, an efficient KP.

    This was a back to back so the minutes played might not be reflective of who plays and how many minutes they get but LT got 16 today and Beas got 28. Beas with 23pts and LT with 4pts. That's a change Horn has to make.

    1st of 4 straight road games against teams with bad records. Memphis, Utah, and the Lakers may also all roll over for us, even at home, if they are thinking as much about tanking as Mafra and Broadway.

    It will be gradual but you can't teach 7'0 wingspans (Frank) and 6'10" wingspans (Baker). And they both love to defend. I'll take that as our future backcourt truth be told.

    Horn is not tanking, I still say a team of THJ, KP, Beas, Kanter and CLee can win you some games. We may have found a new 2nd unit backcourt with Baker/Nits also, both played good defense today and Frank hit some shots and was even aggressive enough to attempt a dunk off penetration.

    It's funny. This team has the most on the fence record in the NBA being currently at 4 games below 0.500. Every team in the NBA with a record better than ours is 0.500 or better and every team with a record worse than ours is at least 8 games below 0.500. With our current roster, I think we will float along indefinitely as the "best" below 0.500 team in the league. Not useful for making the playoffs and not useful for the draft lottery. The only brightside will be if some of our young guys can really get it together over the rest of the season.
