Smith is a lifelong Knicks fan and makes it known. Whether it be on his show or social media, he shows love to his Knicks whenever he can.
It was a tough loss for the Knicks but one that fans shouldn’t be upset about. They competed with arguably the best team in the NBA and the game was decided on a bad foul committed with two seconds left. Alec Burks led the way for New York, he finished with 25 points on 9-21 from the field and 4-10 from three. Julius Randle added 24 points on 50% from the field.
The Knicks fall to 11-10 after this loss but are still seventh in the Eastern Conference. Recently, they haven’t looked great, but this game should help them get some confidence back as they played well.
New York should look to make some moves sometime soon. Coach Thibs said that he doesn’t anticipate playing Kemba Walker anytime soon. If they can get another scorer for him then they will be in a good position. They could possibly package Walker with someone else and try to get a number one player. Julius Randle is a great player, but not the player who can be the number one option on a championship team.
The Knicks will take on a tough Bulls team in the Garden on Thursday. This will be another game that the Knicks will have to play their best basketball to walk away with a win.
