The New York Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley scored 18 points on Monday in a 129-119 victory at Oklahoma City after he missed 10 of 11 field-goal attempts in the .500 team’s previous two losses at Golden State and Phoenix.

“For sure, everybody likes to see the ball go in the basket,” Quickley said after the win over the Thunder.

“When the ball doesn’t go in the basket is when you gotta continue to defend and things like that. But it’s definitely always great when the ball is going in the basket, for sure.”
