Grin and Barrett

7 Jan 2022

Evan Fournier scored 41, including 10-14 from behind the arc, to rally the New York Knicks past the Boston Celtics 108-105. The Knicks fought all the way back from 25 down to take the lead, but Jayson Tatum--who led Boston with 36 points--tied the game with 1.5 seconds left. After a Knick timeout, RJ Barrett, who went 4-15 for the night, banked in a 25-foot three point shot at the buzzer, sending NYK fans to the MSG exits with smiles on their faces.

On the GridCard, jocko (38) was crowned King of the Mountain once again to take the first two games of the new season, earning two Hamlin-Hoppers and the King Kong (79). Last year, jocko earned two KOTMs a respectable total--but one he's already equalled in the first week of 2021. Just three other players posted Qualifying Scores: Butch (33), kjh98 (33), and BabyMac (32). On the ProGrid Tour, dangerzone (28) got the win without a QS.

This week's Team GridCard produced two splits and a sweep. The OG Gridders went off old school style--behind another KOTM from jocko (36)--demolishing the PGT 126-88. Baby Mac (32) helped Team Mac earn a split with Team Collins 112-97. Team Detwiler completed the sweep over VBar 97-90.
