Courtney Lee says MSG silence sapped Knicks’ ‘energy’ in loss to Warriors
Silence was the theme of Sunday’s game between the Warriors and Knicks, but not so much after it.
Madison Square Garden was unusually quiet during the first half of the Warriors’ 112-105 win because arena game presentation staff decided to allow the organic sounds of basketball filter through. Players, though, have not been overly pleased with the decision, citing a lack of energy from the crowd.
“It was kind of weird because that’s home-court advantage, having the crowd involved, having the music going and having that energy behind you so it was different,” Knicks guard Courtney Lee said.
Lee was then reminded that New York led by one point at halftime, and only in the second half with the music back on did the Knicks blow the game.
In these tumultuous times, these true role models are the men and women whose voices we need to disseminate to every corner, not a braying jackass making a desperate grab for relevance amongst a constituency destined for extinction.
Lastly, could someone please tell this man to stop flattering himself. It’s embarrassing.
