    RJ Barrett is still worthless on the defensive-end !!!
    Another Randle turnover

    Even as a Knicks fan, I don’t think we should have won that challenge.

    I don’t know what the hell we’re doing on defense. Committing obvious fouls. Just get the stops.

    Noel misses 2 FTs. Kill me.

    Knicks have been having success executing Thibs’ game plan and doubling Kyrie in the 4th. So, what do we do with less than a minute to go? Leave Payton in isolation on Kyrie and he drains the 3. We trail by 5. Kyrie has 40. Brutal.

    I see Kyrie stripping Randle in my sleep at this point. Luckily we get the call and Randle trims the lead to 3.

    The story of these closing minutes may end up being Noel’s 2 missed FTs and failing to double Kyrie on that one possession. We trail by 3 with 45 seconds to go. Nets ball.

    Double team is effective and forces a turnover from Kyrie. Burks is cold blooded and nails the iso 3 to tie the game.

    Burks for the tied 3 .. bout time Burks get a shot in the 2nd half ....
    Randle, Rose and RJ went one on one 4 or 5 straight times!! The trio of forced shots and turnovers SMH

    Sigh. Knicks get the stop but another offensive board for Nets and get the foul. Green hits 2 clutch FTs. Knicks down by 2 with 3.7 to go. Knicks ball. Is Randle going to get stripped again to end a game? I almost can’t watch.

    Randle misses and we lose by 2.

    You can re-analyze every play of this game, but for me, Noel’s 2 missed FTs and failing to double team Kyrie when he drained that 3 with a minute to go sealed our fate.

    Brutal loss.

    This team competes every game. EVERY game. That is what a Thibodeau team does. I love that. Still, this has been a frustrating stretch as a Knicks fan.

    We follow-up our stretch of winning 4 out of 5 by losing 4 out of 5. In the end, we are 0.500 over our last 10 game stretch, but disappointing after it looked like we were ready to make a run as the 4th seed. Now we’re clinging to the 8th seed. Still, 21 games left to play.
