RJ Barret Has Career Night as the Knicks Beat the Spurs in San Antonio

Lately, things have been pretty rough for the Knicks. Before last night, they were on a three-game losing streak and went back to being under .500. Out of those three games, two of them were lost by 4 points or less, to two teams who are above them in the conference.

The Knicks desperately needed a win that will help to turn things around and insert some much-needed confidence after they got blown out by the Nuggets. So, what did they do? They walked into San Antonio and got their first win there in seven years, snapping two losing streaks in one night.

The team, more particularly their bench, showed up, but the star of the night was by far RJ Barret who dropped a game-high 32 points. He was red-hot from beyond the arc last night in San Antonio as he put up a career-high 7-of-8 shooting from downtown.

This was a very needed performance from Barret as he was previously in a shooting slump that reduced his 3-point efficiency to below the level he was shooting at in his rookie season. There were six Knicks players who scored in double figures, including Barret. Three of these players came off the bench, as the Knick’s bench continues to be one of the most impressive benches in the league.

All around, it was a great win for the Knicks who really needed a win right now. They don’t have much time to rest, however, as the Knicks will have to face the Pacers tonight in the second game of a back-to-back.

    Trouble in Paradise: James Harden’s Frustration in Brooklyn

    Last night on the Barclays Center, a shorthanded Brooklyn Nets fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 106-96, the second game in a row that they’ve lost. You may have not noticed it, but the Nets have quietly been on a disappointing run, in the last 15 games, the Nets have gone 6-9. It also didn’t help that, before Tuesday night’s matchup, a report came out that indicated that James Harden does not enjoy living in Brooklyn.

    Last night in Arrowhead Stadium, possibly one of the best games in NFL playoff history went down. We witnessed two great next-generation quarterbacks go back and forth as Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen put on a clinic in an epic AFC divisional round clash in the NFL playoffs.

    The Problem With Julius Randle

    Saying that the Knicks are having a disappointing season would be an understatement. After the previous season where the team surprised everyone with a 4th seed finish, Knicks fans had high expectations for the team that now, after 46 games, seems like they were never going to be met. There are a lot of reasons for this, coaching, inconsistency, bad free-throw shooting, etc., but there is one saga that I’ve been seeing unfold that has gotten under my skin and today I want to talk about it. My problem with the Knicks’ “star” player, Julius Randle.

    The Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Dilemma

    After the Brooklyn Nets finally allowed Kyrie Irving to play with the team with the caveat that he can only play away games, it now seems as though that only brings more questions and issues for the team to have to consider. I believe that the Net’s front office is at a crossroads right now due to the off and on nature of when Kyrie is available to play and with Kevin Durant out for a couple of weeks due to an injury, the team might just have to make a decision if they want to keep their seeding in the Eastern Conference.
