The Knicks managed to lock down a win on Friday night in their last Friday Night Knicks game of the season.

Ah, the Knicks. Always doing the exact opposite of what we like.

In a showdown at MSG on Friday night, the Knicks took down the Heat 122–98, dominating from start to finish. On a career night from Damyean Dotson, Luke Kornet and Kyle O’Quinn pitched in to bring a W home. Despite a few negatives, the positives were on display tonight. A win is a win.

A few thoughts:


Maybe this guy should play more? Just saying. Dotson was 12-of-21 from the floor, knocking down four threes and securing 11 rebounds in the process. How exciting is this? I know, I know, we wanted the Knicks to lose this game, but these are the performances that perk up our spirits for next season.

• Your requisite lottery odds update:

• Tim Hardaway Jr. went down with an ankle injury. Hopefully it isn’t too serious. It would be surprising to see him play again this season.

• Luke Kornet had a nice game, pouring in 17 points along with eight rebounds and four assists. Kornet hive, assemble! I wonder if he’ll be around next season. He has been an underwhelming shooter for someone that has built his entire resume on it, but he clearly has the potential. The Knicks will have to think about this one.

• Rookie explosion!!

• The Bulls lost tonight and the Knicks won, putting the Knicks one game ahead of Chicago.

• Respect.

The Knicks will be in action again tomorrow night against the Bucks at home.
