Knicks Beat D-League Selects to Remain Undefeated

by Charlie Widdoes

After a slow start, the Knicks regrouped to defeat the D-League Select team, 80-73, and remain undefeated in Las Vegas.

Led by another stellar performance from Tim Hardaway Jr. (25 points) and Shane Larkin (14 points, five assists and five steals), New York bounced back from a nine-point deficit at the end of the first to tie the game at 36 by halftime. 

In the 3rd quarter, Derek Fisher's squad turned up the defensive pressure and opened up a 15-point advantage heading to the 4th. By forcing 20 total turnovers, the Knicks were able to cruise to their fourth straight victory. Their next game will be Saturday against Charlotte on MSG Network.
