121 – 99 New York Knicks. Coming off a dominating performance against the worst team in the league the Washington Wizards, there were doubts about if the Knicks could replicate the same level of play against a much better side in the Washington Wizards. And boy…. were those doubts silenced. Not only did the Knicks give another dominant performance, I’d argue we played better! Julius Randle led the charge early and helped spring the Knicks out to a 15-point lead during the first half. And when the Rockets closed the gap to a 5-point lead late in the 3rd Quarter it was Immanuel Quickley that destroyed any hopes they had of a comeback by hitting deep three after deep three and sinking them right back into a 12-point disadvantage. While RJ Barrett did have disappointing game putting up a measly 7 point on terrible efficiency, I fully except him to bounce back next game as we’ve seen him in shooting slumps likes this before.
Man of the Match: Immanuel Quickley
Next game: February 15 vs Atlanta Hawks
