Resurrection! (Knick Killer to Knick Savior)
Well, I wouldn't exactly call Tim Hardaway Jr. a savior just yet, or a even a resurrection of hid dad, but his game winning corner jumper with 8.2 seconds left in Wednesdays preseason game vs the Celtics shows he may have inherited his fathers clutch genes. As Knick fans well know, Tim Hardaway Sr. was a Knick killer during his days with the Miami Heat and it looks like his clutch genes and killer instinct might be resurrected, ironically with the Knicks!
Overall it was a good outing for the Knicks. They didnt play a perfect game, but they seem to have the potential to be a very good team both offensively and defensively. Bargnani showed he can be a threat and possibly a tag team partner to Melo. Shump showed off his shumpshot... I mean jumpshot leading the Knicks going 7 for 7 with 18pts. Hardaway showed off his jumper going 6 for 10 with 16 pts and even Tyson knocked down a little midrange. Bargnani had 12pts on 3 for 8 shooting, 6 for 6 from the line. Most of all Bargnani showed good chemistry with Melo who ended the night with 7 pts, 4 rbs and 4 ast.
