We went to the Knicks Celtics game last night.
For three and a half quarters the Knicks and Celtics played a tight game and the game was tied at 95 with six minutes left when Coach Fizdale called a time out.
The Knicks came out of that time out befuddled and turned the ball over on three straight possessions which ultimately led to 12-0 run by the Celtics and the game was over.
As we walked out of MSG, I was depressed. More losing.
But my son Josh had a different take. Dennis Smith Jr is finally coming out of his early-season slump. Kevin Knox had a good game after taking a beating in the press recently.
Losing is hard. The Knicks are 4-16 so far this season. There is not much joy in the Garden right now.
But I appreciate Josh’s optimism. By the time we had gotten to dinner, some of it had rubbed off on me.
Patience is hard. Being a Knick fan is great practice.
