Jakob on Knicks controlling the boards:
“They were in good position and they are good offensive rebounders. Maybe there was a little bit of lack of physicality on my part, but, yeah…” – 11:39 PM
Matthew Tynan @Matthew_Tynan
Spurs came in shooting 63.2% at the rim and 45.3% from short mid-range; tonight they shot 55.9% and 40.9% from those areas, respectively. Knicks’ length mucked up what SA likes to do, and add on the lack of 3-pt shooting and all the offensive rebounds for New York, that’s game. – 11:38 PM

RJ Barrett said he had been dealing with the stomach bug for a couple of weeks, which could explain recent performance. Said it started to get really bad (I’ll spare you all the details) after the ATL game Nov. 27. Got really sick during the BKN game, then missed the next one. – 11:27 PM

On another note: Luka Samanic being named G-League Player of the Week isn’t a surprise at all. The G-League was never a problem for the guy as a Spur, he put up big numbers in Austin. Dude has a solid range of skills, but it just hasn’t translated to NBA level thus far. – 11:01 PM

It’s as if the Knicks actively chose to squash all the narratives coming into tonight.

I’m guessing RJ got in the gym lol – 9:36 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs down 62-56 heading into halftime. They had to overcome some stuff (low energy, poor rebounding, loss of Keldon Johnson) to stick that close. – 9:35 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Knicks up 62-56 at the half – Barrett is 7-for-12, 4-for-4 from 3, for 19 points. Which is good since Randle is 0-for-3 and has just 2 free throws. Robinson played well off the bench. – 9:35 PM

Keldon Johnson down after turning his ankle by landing awkwardly on Drew Eubanks’ foot. He’s limping on his way to the locker room with trainer Will Sevening. – 9:32 PM
