Hardaway Jr. vs Pelicans

First round draft pick Rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. break out nght with a career-high 21 points on 5-of-8 three’s, mostly in the fourth quarter, was overshadowed by the sideline drama at MSG on Sunday night.

“It was an energy game but on top of that, I don’t think I played very well,’’ Hardaway said. “ I’ve got a long way to go on the defensive end and I really want to focus on that.’’ – nypost

J.R. Smith still shooting bricks?!

I

man Shumpert has been discussed with trades for quite some time, and now he may really be on the chopping block after last night’s shouting match with the captain Melo?! The Knicks went on to lose 103-99 to the New Orleans Pelicans at MSG on Sunday night to also drop nine straight! Shumpert was upset with Melo’s D(efense) and decided to shout at him in the third quarter! He also had a tidfit with Hardaway Jr. who had a break-out game! I mean Melo was awful in the fourth quarter making 4-of-6 shots for five points, but Shump (in is his position) has to keep quiet and speak his words with actions on the court!
