Knicks Fall To Pacers 121-107

New York: The Knicks started the game with a flurry of 3’s. Immanuel Quickley appears to be the best point guard to run the team. He provided the spark the Knicks needed, to tie the game at 27 to 27 late in the first quarter. Quickley suffered a hip pointer right before halftime and didn’t return to the game in the second half.

Once Quickley left the game, it was all downhill from there. Elf was virtually unplayable, and the Knicks’ offensive stalled big-time. Obi Toppin had a weird night, finishing 3-12 from the field — though a very nice 3-7 from beyond the arc — and threw an absolute dime to RJ.

The biggest saving grace throughout was the strong play of RJ Barrett. The second-year man looked like an All-Star in the first half, dropping 20 points on a perfect 8-8 shooting. He would only finish 11-15 for 26 points, however — as if that’s bad — to go along with 8 rebounds, 5 assists and just 1 turnover.
