De'Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings were dominated by the New York Knicks on Thursday night, handing them their 8th straight loss of the season with a 140-121 win at Madison Square Garden. They were really great and led by rookie sensation Immanuel Quickley, the New Yorkers earned their 16th win of the season, which put them at the 6th position in the Eastern Conference.
The Knicks are surprising everybody this season, including those who tried to troll them before the season. De'Aaron Fox was one of those people, making fun of them after getting the 8th overall pick in the 2020 NBA draft. Fox really went after the Knicks, pissing their fans off and provoking them with a highlight dunk of a Kings' blowout win at MSG.
Well, he made sure to delete all of that after Thursday's game, taking a big L for his prior comments on the Knickerbockers and their position in the draft. They picked Obi Toppin with that selection and Quickley came later, with the 25th pick of the night.
Immanuel finished the night with 25 points, followed by Alec Burks with 24, leading this team to get a big win over one of the struggles squads in the league this season. While the Knicks are resurfacing led by a group of young players, Fox is stuck again with Sacramento. We know now who is having the last laugh.
