The Knicks did not look they knew what they were in for when they came into this game and by the time they looked like they were finally getting in the groove, it was the fourth quarter. The Knicks looked helpless on defence, uncoordinated on offence, no amount of time outs or subs could have helped them get back in this game, as a matter of fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Knicks fans stopped watching at the half.
There was one bright spot for the Knicks in this game and his name is Jeremy Tyler. He was the only player looking sharp as he went off for 18 points (8-12 shooting), 8 rebounds, and 1 assist. He stayed in sync and after a bad performance against the Charlotte Bobcats, he rebounded and was the only reason the Knicks didn’t lose by a 60 point margin. Even with the rest of the team making him look bad, he stood his ground and realized that this is how he performs, its not if the team wins or not that will get him a spot on the roster so he allowed himself to be a bit selfish in the game.
As for the rest of the team, there were bad performances and then there were really bad performances. Lets get straight into the really bad performances.
Once again Chris Smith let down the team as the starting PG. He scored his high in the Summer League (8 points) but he shot 4-15. Even though he contributed four assists he also contributed 6 TO’s. You get the point.
The Knicks looked abysmal and with too many bad performances to go into detail we are just going to list the names of the player.
Shall we start?
Toure Murray, Jerome Jordan, C.J Leslie, Terrence Jennings, Tony Mitchell, Justin Brownlee, J’Covan Brown.
The Knicks looked abysmal and this Summer League has made players with tons of potential seem downgraded by the teams pathetic performances.
