The St. Louis Cardinals selected outfielder Nick Plummer out of Brother Rice High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, with the 23rd pick overall in the opening round.
Every play near the basket looked like a traffic accident. There were long scoreless stretches. Shooting from outside was a dicey proposition. It was ugly for everyone but the Chicago Bulls. This was their type of game.
The Knicks should have their size back in time for their playoff opener, with Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin both on the mend.
