The New York Knicks let a crucial road win slip away against the Chicago Bulls.
The New York Knicks looked very good for most of the game, prior to falling to the Chicago Bulls by a score of 92-87 on Wednesday night.
Here are some observations from the Knicks’ latest loss.
No one stepped up
Down the stretch when the Knicks needed someone to step up and make some plays, no one came through.
The Bulls’ offense didn’t look great down the stretch either, but they made a couple more plays and were able to put the game away.
Unfortunately Kristaps Porzingis and Michael Beasley weren’t able to carry New York to a road win that they had in their grasp.
Offensive tempo dropped off
The Knicks were moving the ball very well on offense for the most of the night, but for some reason, there was a huge drop off in the fourth quarter, which kept them from getting into a rhythm. This allowed the Bulls to put the pressure on and come away with the win.
Knicks miss Tim Hardaway Jr.
With Porzingis and Beasley unable to make plays in crunch time, it’s safe to say that Tim Hardaway Jr. can’t come back soon enough.
Porzingis and Beasley have been two of the Knicks’ top players this so far this season, but they need Hardaway to pick up the slack if they’re unable to get the job done.
The Knicks look like they’re ready to fall apart after a strong start to the season.
