Williams told The Post he is undecided, pending how he finishes out the season. He is one of the few Knicks able to create his own shot — he made one lovely layup off a spin/drive — and is good at drawing fouls. “I’m just worried about playing well and helping this team win,” Williams said. “I love the atmosphere here. When we’re not at our best, the fans are still there. I’m just worried about the last  games. I’m really trying to push, man. If we do that, everything will be good.”
“Spo always says, ‘Playoff Jimmy, we’re going to need him,’” Heat rookie guard Tyler Herro said. “There are two different Jimmys. There’s Jimmy and there’s playoff Jimmy. I think [in Boston] we saw playoff Jimmy. Shoot, the last three games, I think we’ve seen playoff Jimmy, for sure. He’s a great player. I just keep learning from him. He’s solid.”
The Boston Celtics’ disastrous 2018-19 season came to an end on a Wednesday in May. The dejected squad dressed quietly in a Milwaukee locker room, then flew back to Boston the next morning. A few players talked to the media, but they didn’t have any answers. Nobody really did. The next morning, Celtics assistant coach Tony Dobbins got a text: Could he get to the practice facility? Jaylen Brown wanted to get in the gym.
NBA rules require a protest to be filed within 48 hours after a game. Sources said the NBA office has started conducting an investigation that could take longer than the 48-hour window. The Rockets contend that they should either be awarded the win — because they actually outscored the Spurs in regulation — or that the final seven minutes, 50 seconds of the game be replayed at a later date. League sources, however, scoffed at the suggestion that the Rockets would be awarded the victory.
