Kurt Rambis said that Jimmer was going to need to prove himself in practice before he gets some playing time. But he severely underestimated the fact the Knicks are being the Knicks again, and the Raptors are the second best team in the East.
So with the Knicks down double digits in the 4th quarter, per usual nowadays, everyone at MSG knew it was time for the Latter Day Launcher to come into the game.
Granted, the Brigham Baller was playing against the likes of Norman Powell and Anthony Bennett, the first of whom you could’ve convinced was a Theology TA. Jimmer used every minute (all two of them) to his best advantage
1 for 1 from downtown, only one turnover and one foul. Always been a big fan of the “you have 6 fouls, use all of them” motto, and Jimmer was on his way to that.
Just think about what his per 36 is this season… (but not for turnovers, please)
More to come…
