Feels good to get revenge on this team and go into Thanksgiving at .500 after going 3-2 on this road trip! Contenders would have signed up for 3-2 on this tough road trip so good job after it seemed like the sky was falling!

Thunder dropped 145 points on 63% shooting, 17/51 from three last time we played them and dropped 119 points on 48% shooting and 8/24 from three last night so the defensive effort was MUCH better! There were still too many defensive lapses (argh Randle!!!) but overall I thought we did a decent job. Grimes makes a difference. He had some nice defensive stops on SGA, who is unguardable.

Game ball goes to Brunson! Career game by him! He's so much fun to watch if you're an old school fan like me because of his footwork and craftiness! He was just unstoppable! Every time the Thunder made a run, Brunson answered them. His touch is at an elite level! By far the best PG we've had since Marbury and Linsanity for a few weeks! Thank the heavens he didn't get hurt there at the end when Muscala fell on him.

So good to see RJ make some shots! That first dunk got him going. That offensive rebound putback pretty much told us he is over his sickness. He looked a lot better but still too many turnovers. Good to also see IQ make some shots. Love love LOVE Sims! Such a fun player to watch! Thibs seems to love him too! Hartenstein also gave us good minutes including two sick key blocks on SGA. Love Deuce's effort and motor on defense!

And lastly, the zebras were awful! Especially that blonde ref! Almost made Randle go psycho there at the end with her one-sided calls!

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

Even if it keeps us from having flexibility, or landing a star, I’m okay if we don’t break these two up.

I’m a Knicks fan. I was born in pain! Well, not really but my memory is fuzzy.

Great game by JB. He was the Energizer bunny. Put the team on his back to a winning road trip.
Loved the dimes. We win when he has that going.
RJ with great bounce back game 25/8 62/75%. Set the tone early. Love him going to the basket and not settling for threes.
IQ was the difference. Made big threes when it was close.
Randle 26/11.

A lot of upside left.
Other than RJ and IQ team shot 3-25 from three.
RJ with 6 TOs
Other than Sims and IQ bench shot 4-21
Toppin 2-20 last three games.
MR a non factor.

Consistency will be the key. We have seen this team look like a playoff team in many quarters. Unfortunately, they have also looked like a lottery team on many others.
Grimes will need to get his three going and RJ/IQ will need to get consistent.
Guys struggling need to get it going.

But like many have said, 3-2 on Western trip is not bad. Reward is three days off and an easier schedule.

They can't all be Rebecca. 😂 I'd tell Hofstra to post a Kourtney pic, but she's been bad luck. At this point we might need start posting fully coifed Thibs pics to get out of this rut.

Rebecca was the key. One thing for sure, she gets JB going!

The Jazz, Suns, and Nuggets are at the top of the Western Conference, The Warriors are the defending champs. Each has one home loss, Utah and Denver courtesy of the Knicks. They also beat an OKC team that had embarrassed them at the Garden. We're not in denial of inconsistency and flaws, but it isn't unreasonable to expect improvement. Progress.

Not to mention that 2 wins came on back end of back-to-back. That's hard work and gutting it out.

This was an impressive road trip.

It looks like they called a lot of them up from their G-League team.

Love the fact that Knicks have several guys who you can throw on an opponents best wing player or players.

Deuce, Grimes, Cam, IQ, RJ are all different looks and they can all be fierce. 22, 22, 23, 23, 22.

Dang they young and all are very willing movers and can (mostly) fly around perimeter.

I thought Grimes did a good job defensively on SGA. Still believe he's one of the best on the ball defenders in the league, when healthy.
