(Other than being tall guys either deemed untouchable by management and/or the future of the franchise, that is.)
Some credit has to go to the free-falling Knicks in that they managed to turn a 15 point deficit with less than 2 minutes remaining into a 4 point loss. Given there was no attempt to foul with 20 seconds left and a 7 point difference, I’m not sure I’ll even call it losing with dignity.
Steve Francis’ New York debut : 16 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists. Nate Robinson was deactivated for the night, which probably means Spudd Webb bothered to shave for no reason.
There’s been a Latrell Sprewell sighting. Sort of.
