Both the Knicks and Beasley may regret not reuniting for another season.
After starting 4-9, Minnesota won 10 of its first 13 games after Butler was traded on November 11 to get back above.500. "I want to mess around with this lineup more and watch them".
Butler was not available for comment, and the Sixers said he would not play Saturday night due to an upper respiratory infection.
LeBron James will miss the team's upcoming two-game road trip as he recovers from a groin injury, the Lakers announced on Friday. As far as Kuzma goes, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times revealed prior to last game that his MRI showed a lower back contusion. Three months later, Kanter was traded to the Knicks. Seven players scored in double figures for NY, including 10 points in the fourth quarter from Mario Hezonja, who also had barely played since mid-December.
As for the recent pair of wins, Taylor noted the Wolves were expected to win those games, and that the decision wasn't based on just one performance. "We were fortunate to be able to win it, but there was a lot of things we could have and should have done better". It was a 22-point victory that was needed considering the T-Wolves are 19-21 and sit outside of a playoff spot.
"I just don't think we are where we had hoped to be and where we thought we could be", Taylor said by phone. "A little frustrating, but no one's feeling sorry for us". He wore a walking boot after the game. But even if they make it to the April games, it's hard to imagine them making any noise against the West's championship-contending teams. Burke had his highest-scoring performance since before Thanksgiving.
In the six-game skid, the Lakers are averaging 107. "We get up in the fourth and keep giving it away".
The Knicks rolled early, scoring 39 points in the first quarter and jumping to a healthy lead early in the second with Hardaway's offense and strong defense.
Lakers guard Lonzo Ball pointed to the Lakers' offense as an area of concern, explaining it "definitely needs improvement".
