Thanks for the Game Thread Rady .. The Knicks players should be extra Jet Lag after the 5 games in 7 days out West.
Grimes performance yesterday were an exciting boost. The Knicks 17 game performance really need coach Mike Woodson on the bench .. The last time the Knicks offense put up a good screen or good pick was when Bullocks & Taj Gibson were on the team.

Grimes makes such good quick decisions offensively ..
Plus all of the positive Cam has brought to the team ..
Brunson Grimes and Cam are clearly the more effective trio we should've been playing to build chemistry.
Tom Thibs short rotation of 9 players early in the season
The Knicks grabbed a 11 pt lead over OKC in the 2nd quarter, and the Knicks rotation held onto the 11 pt lead throughout the 3rd & 4th quarter for a Knicks 129-119 WIN !!!
The Knicks 2nd season players Grimes, McBride, and Sims were in the rotation tonight, the trio didn't do much scoring, but they gave us outstanding hustle on the defensive end of the court to keep slowing down OKC high scoring players from out-scoring the Knicks again for a 145-135 win.
The OKC consistent poor defense are gonna get OKC some Lottery-Balls at the end of the season.
The Knicks are not the #1 worst defensive team in the league.
