Knicks’ J.R. Smith Fears Early Playoff Exit
There are a lot of ways to measure the mess and the murkiness in which the Knicks find themselves. They’ve lost four games in a row after yesterday’s 93-80 loss to the Clippers, and are a game away from taking a collar on this five-game Western Trek.
“There are no moral victories,” J.R. Smith said, stone faced, solemn, sitting on a stool inside Staples Center. “There are no positives.”
“We keep playing like this,” Smith said, “and it’s going to be an early exit from the playoffs.”
