    Bounce back opportunity. 2 teams both hovering around 0.500 struggling to establish an identity. I have to imagine TWolves expected better than this when they committed 60+ million a year to Towns and Russell.

    Thanks for Game-Thread Rady .... Kemba's Return !!!
    No more Randle to Barrett and Barrett to Randle, yesterday our center MitchRob had to dribble from the top of the key to get his first points.
    Will Fournier have a high scoring game ???

    Our ball movement is way too sloppy. 6 turnovers already. We continue to suffer when we don’t have a real PG on the floor.

    I never understood the Knicks FO for never attempting to go after the Brooklyn Nets Russell or Dinwiddle when they became FA, especially when the two guards were to much for us to grab a win.
    Kemba played 6 min in first qtr.

    Edwards & Bev are shutting down Barretts dribble-dribble shoot performance
    Yes! I'm watching Barrett's offense/defense tonite .. O.K Randle/Barrett with another turnover.
    So far every Minny player Barrett defend has scored on him easy in the first half.

    Not a good 1st half, but we only trail 10. Need to come out with better intensity and execution in the 3rd and make the comeback.

    Half-Time .. Knicks 51 - Minny 61
    Fourniers 5-7 for 13 pts leads the Knicks in the first half
    Edwards 6-12 for 16 pts leads Minny
    Knicks 10 Dimes and 13 turnovers
    Minny 14 Dimes and 4 turnovers
    The End of a back to back are showing for the Knicks.

    Fournier nails the 3. He has 18.

    Great block by Randle on the driving Towns.

    Going to need a big effort from Taj. MRob gets his 5th foul only halfway through the 3rd.

    Not having Noel is a big deal.

    Fournier having a nice game. Strips Towns to force the turnover.

    TWolves play some interesting lineups. They have 2 guys who are basically defensive specialists and don’t really score. Leaves all the scoring for Towns, Russell, and Edwards. You’d think it would make them easier to double.

    The Knicks starters came out to WIN in the 3rd qtr. .. Randle taking No hostages, the score 80-81 Knicks, and Randle going to the FT line to make 80-83 .. Fournier has 23 pts, 3 min remain in 3rd qtr.

    Big 3rd quarter where Knicks score 40 with Fournier scoring 13. Turn a 10 point deficit into a 5 point lead. Can’t let up. Need to pour it on in the 4th.
