Nets 122, Knicks 115: Scenes from another loss to Brooklyn

The New York Knicks haven’t beaten the Brooklyn Nets in a long time. That sad fact remains the same after Saturday night’s scrappy 122-115 loss.

At least we can say these Knicks aren’t giving up, as they fought back from 19 points and had a good chance to complete the comeback. Unfortunately, they were thwarted by the efforts of Kyrie Irving, who still occasionally plays basketball when he’s not spreading antivax and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. Good sauce, this guy sucks.

Regardless, the Nets shot an absurd 22-40 from beyond the arc. Most of that was due to a lazy New York defense, and some of it was due to an impressive shot from Brooklyn.

Jalen Brunson (26 points) and RJ Barrett (24 points) led the scoring charge for the Knicks. Julius Randle had a tough shooting game (1-6 from three), but he managed eight assists.

The next time they face the Nets, Kevin Durant will likely be back. Alas. Summary to come.
