    Butler misses a 14 fter with 4 secs left. Hero ball by him with him dribbling the whole possession.

    Crawford misses a prayer 35 ft 3. Couldn't get a better shot? Overtime and 5 more minutes to see who goes fishing.

    Wiggins shooting 64% FT line has a chance to ice it. He makes both his FTs to give them a 110-106 lead with 14secs left.

    Wolves going to the playoffs. Props to Butler coming back from knee surgery to score 31 pts. He's a difference maker, they don't have a chance against the Rox but they're in the post season

    Didn't see the game watching an exciting Twolves game but Frank had another nice night along with Kornet and Dotson. Knicks are in a nice place to develop their players with their GLeague squad so close to the Knicks Westchester training facilities. I would love to see the Knicks put together a training plan for the young guys including strength training, pickup games, and hire some good developmental coaches.

    9th in the tank battle. I think Mikal Bridges will go sooner but if he's there he's my guy.

    Yeah! Our kids beat a bunch of nobody Cavs... Perentes, Holland, Osman al logged over 30 minutes. Meanwhile, we throw out Beasley and Jack....

    2 wins sent NYK from 6th to 9th.... we shall see how costly it was for NY to be the only team in the top 10 (Ls) to not employ the tank... all the rest of the 9 top losers sat everybody and tried their best to be worst.... Knicks never rested anybody, even the final game.

    Time will tell how debilitating or how meaningless it was to fight our darndest to reach 29 wins.

    Fortunately this is a deep class and we suck at making choices... so maybe scooping up whatever scrap remains might help us.

    But... 4 wins costs us Donic and Bagley.

    If we’re smart... we move up this draft.

    At 9, Bridges, Carter, Sexton and Knox are the most likely tier of players remaining. Very good chance 3 or all 4 are still on the board.

    Ian Begley:

    “Knicks (29-53) have lost at least 50 games in 4 straight seasons & have reached that mark 9 times since the 2000-2001 season. NYK has the worst winning percentage (41.4%) in the NBA since 2000-2001 among franchises that have played in each of those seasons, per ESPN Stats & Info”

    These wins were devastating down the stretch. A complete inept franchise in every since. We operate with absolute zero foresight...meanwhile Fultz delivers a Trip Dip off the bench. He can improve right?

    I felt he was the best guard in this past draft and I stand by that. This underscores how much our young players need to improve because Philly still has a couple players under 21 who can get so much better.

    Keep in mind the playoff and lottery formats are soon to change. We have other teams in the East picking before us most likely and another who's in the playoffs the same.

    You have Devin Booker on record saying this is probably his last yr missing the playoffs. They're going to be a hungry team next yr and they'll have 3 1st rd picks this summer all Top 20. The Bulls will have 2 1st this summer Top 20. Philly has a pick right after us plus another 1st inside Top 25. The Hawks have 2 other 1st rounders beside their Top 5 pick. The Clippers have 2 1st rounders both Top 14

    Are you guys keeping up here?

    Our best young player will miss all of next yr. Even with getting a prospect like Mikal or Sexton or Young...not enough by themselves. How dumb can we be winning these games down the stretch knowing our set of circumstances.

    We may need to use the move down approach this yr to grab multiple picks...maybe look at Atlanta and Philly as trade partners. I'd trade #9 for #18/30/33 or obviously #9 for #10/23. Philly has 4 2nd rounders btw...no way they can keep them all and not enough foreigners in this draft to stash. They'll want to trade the assets as they are young enough already with roster spots filled and will look to make another leap next yr. There are players who will be there later in the draft as good as those just inside/outside the lottery. I'll touch on who I think they are soon enough

    I'll probably move some of these points to the Draft Thread

    The Knits/Burke tandem needs a same-page coach next season to be winners.
    I'm hoping Troy Williams be healthy and in good shape to be our SF in a lineup alongside Knits/Burke.
    I wanted Hicks to receive 5 times the amount of playing-time he received in our last 15 games of this season.
    In our last Knicks 20 to 15 games I was hoping coach Horn could get the players to perform on the same-page on at least one side of the court, but that was like hoping to hit the million dollar Lottery.

    Throughout the Knicks season their were times I thought we had a Knicks winning bench lineup in
    Cemter Quinn
    PF WHG or Hicks
    SF Mcderm or Beasley
    SG Knits
    PG Burke
    If only coach Horn would have been consistent with the bench lineups on the court, instead of experimenting every game having different lineups or a different rotation from the previous game.
