Afflalo Believes Knicks Are Playoff Team Despite Overtime Loss Against OKC

Arron Afflalo

“My take is that we’re a playoff team, period,’’ Arron Afflalo said according to the New York Post. “We will make the playoffs. We belong in the playoffs. I’m just saying that because of our consistency. We’ve been an inconsistent team throughout the year. Tonight bothers me — we have to give that consistent effort so we can pull out wins. From this point forward, it’s about giving that energy. We gave everything, Melo was out and that team is one of the better teams in the league. That lets me know we’re capable of much more.’’

Afflalo echoes the New York Knicks being a playoff team after a 128-122 loss in overtime against the Oklahoma City Thunder. A big night for Kevin Durant scoring 44 points in what appears to be a cliche when a player says they love playing at the garden. Head coach Derek Fisher knows how great Durant is and knows he on that team for now.

“[Durant] played well and they won,” coach Derek Fisher said of his former Thunder teammate. “He’s on the other team.”

Durant and the team were in a shootout against the Knicks with Carmelo Anthony due to knee soreness. They fought tough, hanging in against the best dynamic duo in basketball. But they fail to close the deal yet again due to last play situations. Afflalo had a terrible night shooting less than 30 percent. Kristaps Porzingis scored 15 points, didn’t touch the ball much in overtime. Off the bench Langston Galloway and Derrick Williams combined for 40 points. Lance Thomas starting over Anthony did what he can against Durant and scored 16 points. Afflalo believes this is a playoff team, but they first need to be over .500 to be in that conversation.

“There’s a point in every season we have to decide if you want to hover around .500,” Afflalo said. “I feel we’re better than that. I feel I’m better than what I am. Moving forward, it’s time to show it.’’
