Last night I went with my brother to see the Knicks-Warriors game and boy-oh-boy was it something. It just wasn’t much like “professional basketball” as that’s normally understood. The Knicks gave up 125 points. And won. Easily. Chris Duhon now holds the Knicks franchise record with 22 assists. It’s a little sad. For a longtime franchise like the Knicks, that record should be held by a great point guard. And Duhon, no offense, is not a great point guard. David Lee put up absurd numbers — 21 rebounds and 37 points.

But of course if you look at them, plenty of Warriors had good state lines, too. After all, they did score 125 points. They just didn’t even remotely play defense. It was pretty sad.
