The New York Knicks were on a roll, having won their previous nine games in a row, but then they hit a rough patch and dropped three of their next four games. But, in their most recent game, they got back on track by pulling off a remarkable comeback victory against the Blazers.
Immanuel Quickley contributed valuable minutes off the bench for the Knicks, who continued to struggle at point guard without the services of the injured Jalen Brunson. Julius Randle finished with 24 points to compliment Quickley’s team-high performance of 26 points and ten rebounds for New York.
After coming off the bench, Josh Hart, who has been a significant contributor to the Knicks since joining the team, ended with 16 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists.
With a record of 41-30, the New York Knicks are now ranked sixth in the Eastern Conference.
What exactly is going on with the Nuggets?
Everyone was quite startled when the Denver Nuggets went on a little four-game losing skid since they had been so dominating this season behind the outstanding performance of MVP frontrunner Nikola Jokic.??
Thankfully, the Nuggets snapped their losing streak with a decisive victory against the winless Detroit Pistons. The Nuggets were able to clinch the Northwest Division and claim a position in the playoffs with the help of the win.
Jokic finished with 30 points, making 14 of 18 field goal attempts. In addition, he grabbed ten rebounds and dished out nine assists. His supporting cast also stepped up, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scoring 20 points, Jamal Murray contributing 19, and Aaron Gordon contributing 15 points to the team total.
The Denver Nuggets have a record of 47-23, with them in first place in the Western Conference.
