Of course the Knicks will choke another game! The Knicks had a 19 point lead in the beginning of the 2nd quarter. The Knicks maintained the lead until the end of the game and the Pelicans were able to get a 6 point lead. The Pelicans won by 5 points against the Knicks.
If the Knicks want to be a competitive team for the future, they need to learn how to not choke big leads and close out games. If the Knicks had Porzingis, the Knicks would have had 8 or 9 wins by now and be in the playoff hunt. Hopefully, the Knicks should have KP back soon and the Knicks will be able to win a little bit more even though the Knicks should be tanking. Patience will be a big key to success for the future. Look at the 76ers, for example. It took them 6 years to rebuild and the 76ers are now playoff contenders.
