Christopher Halajian: Knicks Wins Battle Against Nets, But Might Lose Big Picture War
To fans’ relief, the Knicks managed to hold on until the very last second of the 4th quarter, beating the Nets 111-104, but the non-contact left knee injury sustained by Knicks power forward Kristaps Porzingis in the 3rd roused fears over the 7 ft 3 player’s health. Seen limping in the tunnel, Porzingis appears to have taken a bad step while guarding Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. The Knicks issued an official statement saying Porzingis suffered a “sore left knee.” Here’s to hoping what happened last Thursday isn’t something serious like an ACL injury. Porzingis has been putting up solid numbers for the Knicks, averaging 26 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks this season.
Christopher Halajian: Knicks Win, Hold It Together Against Hawks
Let’s face it; the New York Knicks is a young team still trying to find its rhythm. No more has this been made evident than by their sloppy win over the Atlanta Hawks last Sunday, closing it at 111-107. As the Hawks are one of the worst teams in the NBA, to emerge as the victor with a measly 4-point victory speaks volumes about the progress the Knicks has yet to make, at least in terms of holding big leads in the second half of the game. Knicks prized power forward Kristaps Porzingis scored 30 points while small forward Doug McDermott added 23 points off the bench. With barely 4 minutes left to go in the fourth, the Hawks rallied, closing the 9-point lead led by the Hawks down to 3 points. One can say the Knicks barely lucked out on this one.
Christopher Halajian: Jets Wave White Flag Against Broncos
A fan can wonder just how ominous Jets’ Offensive Coordinator John Morton’s waving the white flag was in last Sunday’s game against the Broncos — he might as well have admitted defeat for the remainder of the season so the Jets would have ample time to rebuild itself. In a pitiful 23-0 loss to the Broncos, to say the Jets “got their butts kicked” is an understatement by Morton. To put this in better context, the Jets only managed to go 100 yards of offence — the second lowest total in franchise history. The Jets never reached the red zone as well, and was clearly being toyed by the Broncos. A coach can only take so much beating. To make matters worse, Jets quarterback Josh McCown injured his left hand in the third quarter. Indeed, it takes humility to know when to throw in the towel and accept defeat, and wisdom to save your players from further injury.
