Jump Shots Not Falling

The Knicks moved the ball well for much of the game, and were continuously able to create open looks on the perimeter and from the elbows. Unfortunately, it was just one of those nights where a team just can't seem to get the lid off the basket and the Knicks were held to a disappointing 35% from the field and 30% from deep.
 
However, the Knicks ended up notching a respectable 95 points, thanks in large part to their work at the free throw line. The Knicks got to the line 36 times tonight (nearly double their season average) and converted on 30 of those shots. If the Knicks can move the ball well on the outside and keep pounding other teams in the paint to get to the line, their offense should be very dangerous if these open looks start dropping in.
