New Faces, Same Old Heartbreak (ETS Daily Exclusive)

Despite the Knicks acquiring Tracy McGrady, Eddie House, and Sergio Rodriguez, who all played in their first games as Knicks Saturday at MSG, the OKC Thunder still managed to rip Knicks fans' hearts out. McGrady turned in an exceptional game, shooting 10-17 from the field and adding 26 points. He was also 5 of 7 from the line, but it was his last two misses that cost the Knicks the game. Up by 6 with a minute to go in the ballgame, McGrady went to the line and missed both shots, which eventually led to a Thunder comeback, capped off by a Kevin Durant 3 pointer which tied the game with mere seconds left to play. The Thunder would go on to win in OT, 121-118. Speaking of Durant, you know, the guy who has had 27 straight games scoring more than 25 points? Well, he added 36 points of his own. Also for the thunder, Russell Westbrook shot 13-23 for 31 points, along with 10 assists. House scored 24 pts off the bench for New York, and grabbed 5 boards, but all this solid play from the newcomers simply wasn't enough to cast off the same old spell. The Knicks have now lost 6 in a row, and fall to 19-35 on the season, 8 games out of a potential playoff spot with 28 games remaining in the regular season, and one can only assume there are far more stomach punches yet to come. For Knick fans, July 1st can't come soon enough.
