    Randle and RJ averaged a combined 58 points vs the Hawks. They were held to 29 points (12-38 shooting). This was a game ATL had to win, and yet they still almost lost it.

    Letís be honest, if not for a fluke bounce that led to a Bb 3.... NYK win this game.

    We are a resilient bunch. So, letís see what happens WED.

    27 FT attempts all game... And, 1/3 of them (9) were officials putting Trae Young on the charity stripe in last 8 minutes of 4th Q.

    In a close game, there were 5 separate possessions (of ATLís final 10 or 15) that ended with refs blowing whistle and awarding 2 free points to ATL, in suspect, ????, 50/5 calls.

    At least 2 of the fouls occurred when TY initiated contact!

    This had more to do with ATL winning than Randle shooting like crap. In a close game, where teams are struggling to score... nearly 10% of ATL total points were ref bail out gifts.

    Refs canít change game in final 8 minutes. They did this to us Game 1 when Melo got swept by BOS.

    Refs had a great game but choked down the stretch. Credit Nate McMillan for planting the seed and shame on Thibs for letting this slip away.

    Did Randle All-Star regular season stop coach Thibs from benching Randle a few extra minute to convince Randle his 4-16 shooting has been giving the Hawks a double-digit lead, and Randle could fool the Hawks for a Knicks win by driving to pass the ball, rather than keep shooting for 40 pts, after having 4-16 shooting in the first half.

    There was NO reason for the 41-31 Knicks to lose the first Covid-19 sold-out MSG post-season game.
    NO REASON?
    Especially, having several well Team-Ball winning players in the 10 Man rotation (D.Rose, Burks, Bullocks, Noel, Taj, Barrett, Obi, and Quickley) of Keepers.
    The Knicks 2nd-unit bench lineup combine to score 64 pts on 60% fg shooting .. Giving a dynamic performance to get the big-crowd in MSG to cheer and stand-up as proud Knicks fans !!!

    Randle running the point like a shoot-first PG throughout the game by taking 24 shots.
    Made a lot of Knicks fans upset, because all-star Randle missed 18 shots, and was a weak PF on both sides of the court throughout the game (2 fouls) and going down the stretch ........
    Randle did just what the Hawks defense expected, something the Hawks defense had a week-off to practice.
    And after having such a poor scoring performance on offense, Randle takes the final shot of the game, down by two pts having point nine (.9) seconds on the clock, Randle not only missed the shot, but he didn't get the shot off in time. When the Knicks have a quick release catch n shoot rookie name Quickley who is the fastest shooter on the roster.
