Beyond the Buzzer

The New York Knicks looked like an actual professional basketball team on Thursday night against the woeful Brooklyn Nets. Just 24 hours later, they are getting a wake-up call from the Orlando Magic and rookie Victor Oladipo: We ain't the Nets.

That block on Knicks star forward Carmelo Anthony—coupled with a heaping helping of dreadful Knick D—helped the Magic take control of the game early.

If the sight of 'Melo getting blocked at the rim seems familiar, perhaps you are just experiencing a flashback to Game 6 of last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals, when 'Melo was rejected by Roy Hibbert.
