The Jazz get their butts kicked in New York (38-22, 22-10 home).
J.R. Smith scored 24 and Steve Novak had 20 to lead the Knicks, with Raymond Felton scoring 15 and Chris Copeland adding 12. Kenyon Martin and Iman “Huge Flat-Top” Shumpert each put in 10.
Burks led the Jazz with 14, Hayward had 13, and Kanter contributed 11 & 7.
Nobody else did much of anything.
I’ll keep this brief because I have better things to do on a Saturday night (especially after wasting a couple hours watching this crap).
The effort and energy weren’t there. Nobody played well, really, and we gave up open looks all night long to a team playing without Carmelo Anthony or Amare Stoudemire. It was the last game of a four-game road swing in which each preceding game was a heartbreaker, but that’s no excuse to come out and play with such a lack of… everything.
The road trip now mercifully ends with an 0-4 mark, 32-31 on the season — all tied up in 8th place with the Hated Lakers (we own the tiebreaker), who can pass us if they beat the Bulls tomorrow.
Next up is a visit from the Pistons (23-41) on Monday.
Jazz player of the game: Enes Kanter
