My cousin was at this game last night, but the only thing I enjoyed about New York’s 105-90 loss in Portland was J.R. Smith splitting Lamarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard on this pick and roll and dunking the ball with authoritah. Everything else sucked, including Raymond Felton’s entire return to the Northwest. Actually, SB Nation’s “Dropping on ‘Em" tracker was hysterical:

OK, all was not lost, except the idea the Knicks are contenders for the Eastern Conference throne.

I’m not going to lie, the New York City nightlife pretty much got to me.

I was going out pretty much every other night and not focused on the task at hand.
