Knicks beat Nets ... in D-League, but Burrell Excels

Longs Island Nets

Not long after the Nets called up Archie Goodwin on Wednesday, Trahson Burrell posted a couple of tweets that were one part disappointment, one part resolve.

Then, Thursday night, Burrell went beyond words, filling the D-League box score with 23 points, five rebounds and four assists, hitting two three-pointers and shooting 50 percent from the floor overall. It wasn’t enough for the Long Island Nets to defeat the Westchester Knicks, but it was enough to remind everyone that Long Island’s Swiss Army knife is still in the game.

The final score was 123-111, Knicks.

Cliff Alexander continued his strong run with an 18-point, 10-rebound game in 35 minutes and J.J. Moore continued his largely unherald season with 21 points on 3-of-4 shooting from deep. R.J. Hunter had his worst games in weeks, finishing with four points and missing all but one of his eight three point attempts.

Long Island’s two 6’5” point guards played well. Tim Quarterman, on assignment from Portland, came up with 16 points, eight assists and seven rebounds while Boris Dallo, the French import, had 17 points, eight rebounds and two assists.

For Westchester, the high scorer was again John Jenkins. Last week, he had a 40-point game, this week 28 on 10-of-17 shooting.
