The battle for futility happened Saturday between the win less New Jersey Nets and the “2 Win Crew” of the New York Knicks.
The Knicks were able to pull out the victory by the score of 98-91. However, one of the more interesting happenings was at the end of the first quarter when New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson shot at his own basket.
The shot went in and Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni flipped out although the shot did not count. I can understand that Robinson wanted to practice his jump shot but still, you never shot at your own basket when any time left on the clock. Think if the Knicks lost by three and the shot counted.
The sad thing is that the Nets still lost. Even this fiasco cannot mire that.
