Knicks fall at home to Kings in horrific loss 113-92
The score doesn’t reflect last night’s slaughtering. But it does signal that things are not going well at all in Knicks land. And David Fizdale’s idea of starting Bobby Portis over Mitchell Robinson was inspiring as a glass of water while drowning.
“We had nothing. For three quarters we were stuck in the mud.”
– David Fizdale
The Kings led by as many as 32 points after halftime, propelled by De’Aaron Fox’s 24 points and by the three ball that kept on going in. As a matter of fact, the Kings shot over 41% from behind the arc in the first half, and they scored a total of 45 points the entire game by shooting the long distance. On the other hand, the Knicks made just 8 three pointers in 31 attempts.

Marcus Morris led New York with a game high 28 going 9-14 from the field while RJ Barrett added 22. There were only two other guys that finished in double figures, both of them off the bench, Robinson with 10 and Allonzo Trier with 11.
Next up: Knicks visit the Pistons on Wednesday night. Game starts at 7:00 pm.
