Just a pathetic showing, I’d say even worse than the 29-point beatdown we took in New York just over a week ago. The Knicks (39-26) were without Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler — finishing up a five-game road trip, and on a back-to-back — and they still beat us on our home floor.
J.R. Smith scored 20, Raymond Felton had 19, and Chris Copeland put in 14 & 6 for New York, who had lost four in a row since beating us on March 9.
Hayward led the Jazz with 17 points and four… blocks?? Millsap scored 12, Jefferson contributed 10 & 11, and Marvin added 10 & 6.
Too much hero ball from Mo, who scored nine points on 14 shots. Speaking of inefficiency, Jefferson’s 10 points came on 13 shots.
Rough night for Favors on the offensive side, going 1-for-7 from the field and 5-of-12 from the free throw line. He did grab 13 boards in just 21 minutes though.
Once again, Watson (17) plays more minutes than Burks (13).
Bottom line is we got punked by a bunch of old fogies. Kenyon Martin, Kurt Thomas, Marcus Camby, and Jason Kidd played 83 minutes for the Knicks tonight. I’m sure it’s Corbins dream to coach so many washed up hacks all at once.
Playoff chances are looking slim now. We’re at 34-33, still behind the Hated Lakers (36-33) for the 8th seed in the West, with a three-game road trip up next.
That Texas road trip starts Wednesday at Houston (36-31), which currently sits at No. 7 in the West.
Jazz player of the game: Gordon Hayward
