Memorial Day weekend is but right around the corner (Literally) and everybody...
Video:Knicks Iman Shumpert Goes Down Hard After Twisting Ankle, Leaves Game
The rookie guard writhed in pain as ABC went to commercial break; reporters in the arena tweeted that not only was Shumpert helped from the floor, but that a Knicks trainer held the back of the guard’s knee for support. It looked pretty bad.
Shumpert is one of the Knicks’ best defenders as a terrific ballhawk and dribble disrupter. Shumpert’s injury came just two hours after Derrick Rose left the Bulls’ win over the Sixers with a similar injury. This condense schedule seems to really have a big effect on these guys. Baron Davis also shaky for the Knicks and no Lin, leaving an older Bibby as the point guard for the Knicks, sometimes leaving Smith and Anthony to bring the ball up.
This first game has been less than entertaining with horrific officiating.
