End of 3rd Quarter .. Knicks 108 - Wolves 109
Randle has 52 pts in 29 min at the end of 3rd
The Wolves PF Taurean Prince scored 35 pts on 12-13 FGA, and 8-8 (100%) from the 3-ball line.
Who Knicks job was it to defend Taurean Prince, after he scored 20 pts in the first half?
The Wolves frontcourt big men scored 91 pts, compared to the Knicks frontcourt big mens 66 pts.
The Knicks Defense allowed the Wolves to score 79 pts in the first half of the game, and 61 pts in the 2nd half of the game shooting 61% from the FG.
The Knicks best two defensive players (MitchRob & Grimes) in the starter lineup took one FG shot each throughout the game .... Deuce McBride should've been in the rotation to put pressure on Nowell's 14 pts scoring.
The Knicks PF Randle scored 57 pts on 19-29 FGA, and 9-14 from 3-ball line, 4 rbs, 1 ast, and 4 turnovers.
It's nice Randle scored a career high 57 pts, but I would've been happy if Randle scored 17 pts and the Knicks won the game.
`Oh yeah, Hartenstein tip in gave the Knicks a a 5 pt lead (125-120) when Randle and Brunson entered the game in the 4th quarter. Randle was drunk tired during the final 3 min of the 3rd quarter.
Randle playing the entire 12 minutes in the First & Third quarter throughout the season will become our number one enemy !!!
