A stupid mistake led to the loss of the game, but the whole team did not blame him too much.
On November 22, , there have been more and more rumors about the New York Knicks starting No. 2 Iman Sambert trade recently. It seems that his departure has become a fact.
Perhaps due to the interference of trade rumors, Sambert’s performance has become very unstable. Not only can he not contribute on the offensive end, but even the defense he is famous for has become stiff and slow.
In yesterday’s game between the Knicks and the Pacers, Sambert made a fatal mistake at the last moment.
A few seconds before the end, Paul George made a three-pointer and was fouled by Sam Burt’s thugs. In the end, George was given three free throw opportunities and dragged into overtime. In the end, the Knicks lost the game.
A mistake at a critical moment led to the loss of the game. Maybe Sambert himself thought it was time to leave.
But after the game, the team boss Carmelo Anthony publicly expressed the hope that he can stay, “I think he is part of the future, I hope so, we have high expectations for Sambert, especially when he plays tonight.
The way that we need him to contribute on the defensive end. He feels that he can face it in a better way, and I hope he has to think too much.” With the care of the boss, I think Sam
Tate could finally breathe a sigh of relief.
In fact, apart from the mistake before the end of the game, Sambert performed very well at other times. For that stupid foul, Knicks coach Woodson also expressed that he did not blame Sambert. He told reporters about the tactics he arranged at the time.
That is, when they found that the opponent had a chance to shoot a three-pointer, they simply fouled and gave the opponent two free throws. In this way, even if the opponent made all the shots, the Knicks could still lead by one point, but unexpectedly, Sambert’s action was a bit slower.
“It doesn’t matter. Since they called the foul, it’s a thing of the past.” Sambert said seemingly calmly after the game.
When the reporter asked about the transaction, Sambert was also very calm, “The key now is how to win, not my transaction or not. Anyway, I can’t do anything. First of all, we must find a way to win.
