New York Knicks 104 Final

Recap | Box Score

84 Charlotte Bobcats
Tyrus Thomas, PF 21 MIN | 4-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 9 PTS | -10Meh.
Byron Mullens, C 19 MIN | 2-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 5 PTS | -12It’s nice that you’re extending your range, Byron – but don’t fall in love with the 3.
Bismack Biyombo, C 25 MIN | 2-3 FG | 1-4 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 5 PTS | -11Several nice blocks from Bismack – but weak on the boards and still gets lost on defense too often.
Gerald Henderson, G 37 MIN | 7-12 FG | 7-10 FT | 7 REB | 4 AST | 21 PTS | -20Really strong game for Henderson – looks like he wants to convince the Bobcats not to draft Beal if they don’t get the first overall pick.
D.J. Augustin, PG 32 MIN | 5-15 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 7 AST | 12 PTS | -8Solid creation – just couldn’t make many of his own attempts.
DeSagana Diop, C 20 MIN | 1-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 2 PTS | -1Slow getting back on defense, didn’t box out, didn’t rebound.
Jamario Moon, SF 23 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 8 REB | 2 AST | 4 PTS | -12Still don’t understand why the Bobcats didn’t sign someone from the D-League who was under 30.
D.J. White, PF 28 MIN | 5-9 FG | 1-2 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 11 PTS | -10After a good shooting first half, D.J. was a bit quick on the trigger a couple of times when he got back in during the second half, rushed some shots and helped the Knicks build their eventual winning margin.
Kemba Walker, PG 25 MIN | 4-12 FG | 3-6 FT | 2 REB | 4 AST | 13 PTS | -16Continues to miss open jumpers once he loses his defender. A real area for focus in the off-season.

Four Things We Saw

  1. The Bobcats paired Kemba and D.J. a little more often in the backcourt again, with mixed results. It helps to have two players on the floor who can create for themselves, but defensively, the Knicks were able to take advantage, especially when Shumpert and Smith were paired in the backcourt.
  2. The Bobcats kept this one interesting for a while – but Amare Stoudemire had a big third quarter to give the Knicks a decent size cushion heading into the fourth and the Bobcats couldn’t make a run.
  3. It’s official – worst winning percentage in NBA history. History was made last night.
  4. It’s now the off-season. It’s over. It’s finally over.
