Watch: Hapless Knicks score on own basket
The New York Knicks’ nightmare season continued in comical fashion on Sunday.
The Knicks entered their game against the San Antonio Spurs with the worst record in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. They have been the subjects of jokes for much of the season. On Sunday, the Knicks found a new way to be embarrassing by scoring on their own basket when there wasn’t a Spurs player remotely near the rim.
The Knicks have not won a game at home since December 1.

If there’s one play that sums up the 2018-2019 season for the Knicks, it may very well be that one. Even head coach David Fizdale had to chuckle. On the bright side, New York’s dreadful season may result in the franchise getting the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft. Not even they could mess that up, right?
