Fizdale calls Knicks’ effort in latest loss ‘sickening’
Fizdale was 21-83 in less than two seasons as Knicks coach, and he is owed the remainder of his four-year, $22 million contract. His .202 winning percentage with the team is the fifth-worst with a single team, with a minimum of 100 games, over the last 30 NBA seasons.

The Knicks rank last in the NBA this season in points per game (103.7), field-goal percentage (42.2%), point differential (10.8 ppg) and offensive efficiency, scoring just 101.9 points per 100 possessions — which is on pace for the worst mark since the 2015-16 Philadelphia 76ers, who finished 10-72.

The Knicks next play at home against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday before heading West on a four-game road trip.

The back-to-back blowout losses to the Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks made them just the seventh team in NBA history — and the first Knicks team — to lose consecutive games by 35 points or more.

The other time the Knicks started 4-18, in 2014-15, they went on to lose 65 games — tied with last season for the worst in the history of the team.

Overall, the Knicks have missed the playoffs in six consecutive seasons, which is tied for the second-longest streak in franchise history.

Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys China

The Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys China and Cheap Washington Wizards Jerseys China battled to a final score Wednesday night that looked more like the result of an All-Star Game than an early-season matchup, combining to score 317 points, the most in an NBA game decided by a single point.

The visiting Rockets needed every one of Cheap James Harden Jersey China‘s 59 points to prevail 159-158, as the Wizards matched the record for the most points scored in an NBA regulation loss. The Denver Nuggets also scored 158 points in a loss to the Golden State Warriors on Nov. 2, 1990.

“I didn’t know we were going to have to score about 160 points to win, but whatever it takes, it took,” Houston coach Mike D’Antoni said. “A lot of great individual performances. They played unbelievable. They didn’t miss anything. We just let down a little bit, and they made everything.”

The previous record for combined points in a game decided by a single point was 311 between the Chicago Bulls and Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys China in 1984. Houston set a franchise record for points Wednesday night, and Washington’s 158 was the second most in franchise history.

“We were one play from winning an exciting game,” Wizards coach Scott Brooks said.

That other Houston-Washington game: Everything to know from a 317-point night
It was the third game in the past 25 seasons in which each team scored at least 150 points, joining the Bulls’ 168-161 victory over the Atlanta Hawks this past March and the Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys China‘ 161-157 win over the then-New Jersey Nets in December 2006.

The Rockets and Wizards combined to score 153 points in the first half, the highest-scoring half in a game this young season.

He also had nine assists in 37 minutes. He now has a 50-point game in five consecutive seasons, tied for the second-longest streak in NBA history, with 19 total in his career.

That’s what the course of the year is for. We just try and build those habits and continue to keep building.”

Teammate Cheap Russell Westbrook Jersey China had his second triple-double of the season with 17 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.
