The Knicks didn’t play well and lost in overtime against Portland. At the end of the match, the protagonists spoke of a step backward, admitting that they hadn’t played as well as in their last five away games.
Coach Tom Thibodeau himself confirmed that the Knicks game was not as we all expected at first:
“We have to adapt to what the game is called. This can change, sometimes it’s going to be tight, sometimes it’s not that tight. But we can’t keep repeating our mistakes, the ones we always make. If they call it that, we have to adapt.”
