Long after the Knicks had made their 18th and final 3-pointer, LeBron James had to admit the obvious.
“They kicked our ass,” he said.
Without Carmelo Anthony. Without Amar’e Stoudemire. Without Iman Shumpert.
Then again, this isn’t the first time James and his teammates have been taken apart by the Knicks.
“It’s two games now that they pretty much dominated us,” James said, standing at his locker, late Thursday night. “It doesn’t matter what the score was. They’ve dominated us twice.”
The Knicks sure have. They’ve dominated a team that owned them all of last season, playoffs included.
