A few seconds after the last buzzer sounded, the fake noise machine was turned off, and the garden was silent, just like the Knicks’ attack.
This is not a disaster. The Knicks still have five victories after nine games.
In the 2019-20 season, the Knicks won their fifth victory until the 25th game of the season, only after David Fizdale was fired and Mike Miller was promoted. However, this is really terrible, this is really terrible-on Friday, the Thunder team was nameless due to reconstruction, this 101-89 housing loss.
In any case, it was a nightmare offensive performance. After the Knicks won five of the last six games, the empty seats were like blue seats. Perhaps seeing Miller̵
Or maybe the important players of the Knicks have tired legs after all the games. Yes, this has always been the only worry for the respected coach Tom Thibodeau.
RJ Barrett and Julius Randle ranked the top two in the league in minutes entered.
Randall looks too much like Randall from last season. He didn’t score in the first half. Then in the fourth quarter, Randall lazily dribbled the ball onto the ball, and Queens’ proud Hamidia Diallo stripped the ball from behind and participated in an 11-point Thunder layup.
A moment ago, Diallo (he had 21 points and 11 assists) made up for his mistake. The venerable point guard George Hill did not dribble the layup, but did a layup, which is reminiscent of the past few years.
Every club enters the pandemic season and is considered a tank and draft pick. Every team has underestimated expectations. The Knicks now beat the Thunder 5-4, and the Thunder became the .500 team on Friday.
This is a bad loss for a club. The starters of this club such as Darius Bazley and Luguentz Dort are the best names in the league. And the best body, but a defensive expert. Dortmund beat the Knicks with a three-pointer in the fourth quarter.
Aleksej Pokusevski, also a rookie with the Thunder, shot 9.5% from the field, but he hit two three-pointers in the final stage.
Thibodeau’s Knicks have had the best start for the team since the 2012-13 season started into the night.
ESPN’s new outspoken superstar Kendrick Perkins touted the Knicks’ new offense as the key to revival. But Perkins had the upper hand over the Knicks, shooting 35.8% against the Thunder.
Thibodu said he felt that after the Knicks lost their first half lead, they stopped receiving the ball.
Thibodu said: “We are trying to get out of trouble alone.” “We are together, we must be together.”
Perkins was the center of the Celtics’ three seasons, when Thibodeau was an assistant coach at Doc Rivers in Boston.
Perkins said on ESPN before Friday’s game: “During his two years away, he re-evaluated himself and returned with another coach.” “Because they are making some games and I have some freedom on the offensive end, so I have never seen the Tom Thibodeau team have such freedom. But I love it.”
Soon, Thibodeau will be honored for inventing the synthetic protein for the key new vaccine. Seriously, Perkins’ remarks on national television deserve further examination before confirming their authenticity.
Compared with the games led by Jeff Hornacek, Fizdale and Miller, they have a faster pace of the game, a higher percentage of three-pointers and better ball movement.
But in terms of X and O, is there more freedom? In the regular game last Friday, their average score still ranked 28th (104 points). Their offense is still a problem, and they will need the injured sweet shooting swingman Alec Burks early.
Opponents like Austin Rivers and Immanuel Quickley are no longer Friday. Rivers even missed a three-pointer in the fourth quarter.
In the end, Quickley looked like a second-round pick. Quickley had the worst night of his career-9 shots and almost broke the rebound on a solid float.
Former Wizards, Hawks and Raptors scout Bryan Oringher said: “I still see the vanilla smell in that area.” He attacked the Knicks on his YouTube channel on Thursday. And the defense conducted a two-part scout review. “But they are definitely defending.”
After the Dallas offseason was extended, Randall became different. Randall has been going all out on defense and offense, averaging 23.1 points, 12 rebounds and 7.4 assists in the All-Star Game until he was eliminated from the dirty state last Friday.
“At both ends of the floor, we didn’t play against each other,” Randall said.
Oringher is still not sure if this is the “weird” Randle or the upcoming new Randle. He said Southpaw in Texas has been “crazy”.
“He is doing what he did last year,” Olinger said. “He just did better.”
Thibodeau showed a knack for sticking to the right players in the fourth quarter, which is Fizdale’s main crime. But on Friday those players looked very tired, especially Barrett.
The painful question is whether this is the beginning of a trend.
