When the new center of the Knicks, Norvel Pelle (Norvel Pelle) participated in Saturday’s game at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, many televisions were turned off and the game time was 2:44.
The Knicks have destroyed the Pistons 125-81 in Motown from start to finish and established a 14-0 lead, which became 41-15 after a quarter. The rest of the game is a waste of time.
When the Knicks found their car in the Motor City, they desperately needed a 44-point destruction, and it no longer looked like they were going to the junkyard. The Knicks scored the sixth-largest margin of victory in franchise history, broke their three-game losing streak, and returned to 0.50 at odds of 25-25.
But before Pell became a symbol of the tough Knicks and Motown, not yet. Prior to this, a 6-foot-1
When he got the ball for the first time, Pell was fouled on the way to a dunk and he stuck a finger into the hoop. When Peller landed, Pell watched his index bend in various directions. He smiled at this disfigurement.
The trainers of the Knicks rushed to Pell. They finally pushed their fingers back to their original positions.
Pell said he wanted to take a free throw. Trainer Anthony Goenaga taped his fingers. Pelle goes to the free throw line, one of two free throws.
At the other end, the center of the cap plays a role. The Pistons rookie Isaiah Stewart (Isaiah Stewart), a rookie from northern Rochester, had a difficult first-round pick. He tried to cross Peller twice and was blocked each time, first with Peller’s right hand, then his left hand .
The crazy ending of a wild night in Detroit. Although it is indeed difficult for the Pistons to win NIT, this is an important choice for the Knicks.
“Seeing a player like this joining us and getting injured, and being able to wrap it up and make a big square, shows his energy,” said Reggie Bullock, the star of the night, who scored 22 points. And tied a career high with six three-pointers. “He is a Knicks type player and has the courage to continue playing. We like his fight.”
This is only a short while, but symbolizing the resilience of the Tom Thibodeau club has shown 50 games. Thibodu admitted before the game that he didn’t know much about Pell, who played for the 76ers, the Kings and the Nets.
“Our scout really likes him,” he said.
Thibodeau now knows why. He likes to defend against despicable centers, and they smile at misplaced fingers.
“It’s amazing,” Thibodeau said. “This guy has not experienced any practice. He is ready to go. It looks ugly. You appreciate why he wants to stay. That’s why we brought him in-basket protection. There are many things about him. Obviously happy. His performance in that short game.”
It was just a strange night. The Knicks took a 30-point lead in the middle of the second quarter and rose to 40 points in the final stage. The early scores were ridiculously -14-0, 16-1, 24-3. Limited fans should ask for refunds, even though some fans wear Knicks jerseys.
“I just like the unity and spirit of the team,” Thibodeau said. “They performed well at the festival, and the beginning of the drill and the game set the tone for selflessness and our defensive approach.
In this league, nothing is for me, especially on the next night back to back. Remember, the Knicks fell on Wednesday against the worst team in the NBA in the fourth quarter of Minnesota.
After a terrible night against Dallas on Friday, Julius Randle found his star and panicked with 20 of the 41 points in the first quarter. In the 12-minute masterpiece, Randle and Bullock each consumed four three-pointers.
Judging from the way the Pistons don’t seem to care, you can see that Detroit (14-35) will get money for Minnesota (12-38), which is the worst record in the NBA. The piston is on the tank train. Gonzaga hero Jalen Suggs (Jalen Suggs) may use his Bulldog uniform for the Pistons uniform. poor guy. At least the Knicks have the Pistons’ second-round picks and can rank 31st overall.
The Knicks took no action on the transaction deadline, did nothing in the acquisition market, except to pay tribute to Pell (Mope), who became Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson (Taj Gibson). ) After the third-line center.
Whether they regret not making higher demands on backcourt players Victor Oladipo, Norman Powell, Lonzo Ball or small forward Evan Fournier will depend on the height of shooting guard Derrick Rose, a factor obtained in the Super Bowl deal on Sunday.
“Every team is fighting for something now, and this is not fighting for something, they will [like] Become the team that eliminated us into the playoffs,” Rose said. “This is the meaning of the NBA. Men are not allowed.”
They are the men in Detroit on Saturday.
