Will Bridges or Cam ever hit a 3 again?


This has been a weird game of runs
Very good question.
All we had to do was ask. I think they both made every three they took after that. Cam might have missed one.

Chris Paul.
That one fling. Wow. That was a back breaker.

Chris Rock and Jon Stewart got to enjoy it.

It feels good to go into these games with confidence that we can win.

Great way to end the trip. 3-2, I’ll take it! Now we have the pleasure of our final two game home stand against... the Clippers and the Jazz. Piece of cake.

Great win! I knew we had it in us. Knicks kept getting easy baskets, and it didn't look good for most of the first half. But Bridges and Cam both delivered some much needed offense (Can waking up after missing his first seven 3s) to go along with Booker and CP3.

Rose and Taj Gibson had throwback games for Thibs and the Knicks. We seem to have kept Randle in check, though.

Both gonna lose tonight. We’ll be in first come Friday if we win both.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

That would be something but I’m not holding my breath. I’d be happy to get a split (no pun intended.)

Knicks Twitter is the worst. If we took the L tonight I probably would've had to shutdown one of my burner accounts.

CP was pretty invisible until like, the last 3 possessions of the game when he knocked down those shots and put the Knicks away. That's why he's Chris Paul and Chris Paul does that at MSG to win the game. It was pretty amazing to watch.

Great win against a tough team, especially at the end of the road trip. The legs kicked in in the 4th and hopefully Cam and Mikal are back on track. Mikal had some big defensive plays in the 2nd half that helped swing things and he was able to get his offense rolling. Book carried us most of the game, keeping us within striking distance. He was carving the Knicks up, they couldn't stop him. Watching him and Barrett battle was fun.

DA was better in the 2nd half for sure. He controlled the paint and the boards more, just couldn't get anything going on offense because of the Knicks post defense.

It really is.

It's like just being a Knicks fan is a license to have wildly ignorant NBA takes. Some of them are self aware enough that their takes swing between parody and pride, but the lot of them puff their chest out as if just being a Knicks fan somehow makes them smarter than everyone else who watches basketball.

I don't want to cross streams here, but it's strangely similar to conservative Twitter.

I’m not sure I ever interact with Knicks Twitter outside of a couple big accounts(Wob) and he’s one of the better nba follows.

What. A. Game.

Side bar: Remember when Bullock was like 0-17 or something crazy, shooting as a Sun? That’s all I could think about when he was hitting all those shots in the 1st

Knicks Twitter >>>>>> Lakers Twitter

Lakers Twitter is everything you just described without any humility or sense of humor.

I love EJ's "Oh, my." on that last Booker move.

Booker to Knick defenders: "Oh ... were you trying to guard me??
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)
