Melo and the Knicks fought hard. You have to give them that.
Yeah, so....that happened.
The longest regular season game of the 2016-17 NBA calendar so far was Sunday afternoon’s meeting between the Knicks and the Hawks in Atlanta. It was a very, very long game, and despite an appearance from Olympic — nay, Herculean — Melo, New York could not hold on for a win.
Before we get to some notes and observations from today’s game, I’d like to say a few words about some stuff. ahem.
