6’8″ Chris Copeland should have had an easy dunk while the Knicks were getting their asses kicked in the first half of last night’s game in Sacramento. Instead, Copeland slowed down and tried a lay-up which was swatted away by 6-foot-nothing Aaron Brooks. On the other end of the court the play ended with one of Jimmer Fredette’s three first-half 3′s.
The Kings lead was as big as 27 in the first half. During the second, the Knicks outscored the Kings 55-35 before a wild broken play ended with James Johnson hitting a three at the buzzer to negate the comeback. It was Johnson’s first 3-pointer of the season. He has shot .283 from distance over his career.
