The Knicks, first guided by Evan Fournier, then released by Immanuel Quickley in the money-time, offered themselves a success of esteem against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday in the NBA.

Skillful at long distance (6/9) and author of 26 points, Fournier showed a different face than that of the last two weeks, during which the French rear had appeared well inside after a successful debut in the “Big Apple”.

At his side, Julius Randle was very active (20 pts, 16 rebounds, 5 assists) to allow New York (10-8) to move up to 6th place in the East, four rows behind Miami, which was able to erase nine points behind at the start of the 4th quarter to win in Detroit (100-92).

The Lakers suffered from the absence of LeBron James, who was serving the game suspension imposed on him by the NBA after his blow to the face of Detroit player Isaiah Stewart on Sunday. The latter, bloodied above the eye, then wanted to take revenge several times on the floor and was fined two matches for that.

Without their “King”, the Lakers have shown fighting spirit but they missed a second wind.
