MIL with some ill-timed injuries.
Brogdon, Mr Key Guy, probably missing 1st round of playoffs.
Mirrortrick* out for rest of season, hopefully back for playoffs.
GrandPau Gasol bum ankle out a month.

Not shaping up well for MIL.  Gotta hope to sweep the 1st round and have time to heal up.  Need the Frog back for 2nd round, and Mirotic important too in any tough series.


* try to logically explain why a mirror reverses left and right but not top and bottom.  We all know this is true, but explaining it is surprisingly complicated.  I think I have a simple elegant explanation, but it's not one of the 2 or 3 scientific explanations competing out there.

Another loss. So....what happened to Kornet? Injured? In as much as these games don't mean shit, it's odd that he's not even playing a minute.

Pretty good Knick game.
I just accidentally tuned in early 1Q.
Thought it was a replay for some time, before I realized it was live.

Both teams played hard and competed.
DeAndre the Giant was revved.
Mud was having a fine game until he started making mistakes left and right and center the last few minutes.
Lost his man for a wide open Clip 3.
Barreled into Gallo twice -- once a fortunate no-call (no charge), the second time he didn't have a layup and threw the ball away.
Lost his focus.

Franc got mildly reinjured; Know turned his ankle; Zonja tried but is sloppy.  Dot and Mitch were effective. 
Knix played pretty well, until they started losing everyone on the perimeter late.

Love the tenacity of Harrell & Pa Bev.
Shai Guy also gets into it on D, but sometimes overdoes it.
63 points for Clips bench v. 61 from their starters.

You can't make chop suey out of ... wait, how does that saying go?

Fizzy went with Kadeem and Jenkins.
Chop Suey and Hellenson pined away.
Lance played a lot.  But I think that's because Fizz wanted someone who wouldn't be afraid of Montrezl.

I haven't seen enough lately to know what's going on with rotations and such.  But Fizz played 3 guards a lot, with Kadeem out there with Dot and Mud.

“Having veterans, I think, solid veteran play, always helps young guys,” Knicks coach David Fizdale said. “I was thinking about Scott Perry’s teams in Detroit when Tayshaun [Prince] got there. He wasn’t great at everything, but he could be impactful on games, because he had Chauncey and Rip and Rasheed and Ben Wallace and Lindsay Hunter. So he could come along a little slower with his process, figure things out. His warts didn’t show as much because other guys weren’t messing up."

“Kevin’s warts show, because everybody else is screwing up, too. So we can’t tuck him away and hide those things right now. But I think going through this is as good as going through it with veterans, because , and I think he’s going this fast-tracks you. This forces you to have to go through all of it and really face what you’re weak at in an immediate way. So I think all of this stuff has been good for himto be different than those numbers.”

I can endorse this.
I've said much the same.

It's not ideal to have your prized rook struggle for stretches.
But it's also not good to limit his minutes if he isn't doing well at times on a good vet team.

Fizz is keeping Knox positive and letting him work through things.
An 82 game season is long, especially when you lose 65 of them.
Lots of Knix got experience and learned about the NBA this year.

it's good DeGiant and Lance and Bernard the King are all talking with Knox and helping him through the end of this year.

Knox might miss a few games with the ankle, though it didn't look serious.  And they get better treatment than just my bag of ice.

Be a shame if Franc doesn't get at least 5 or more games in to finish the year.  There's a sense Franc could be shipped out.

Hey Bank, I think your team misses Kelly Olynyk. Maybe that’s why they’re losing so much.

Knicks play better without KK. Today it was interesting until they started throwing the ball away and not defending the 3 in the last few minutes. Well, maybe they just don’t know defense.
