Yes, with nothing to play for but lottery position the Knicks couldn’t help but bungle the very obvious need to throw the remaining games of the season and land the best possible chances for the number one overall pick.
Knicks coach/sentient suit Derek Fisher acknowledged that people probably weren’t happy with his squad winning the game.
Derek Fisher says "I'm sure people are upset with us tonight." But adds that it's hard to tell players to not play their best. #Knicks
