NBA – The clashes multiply at the Knicks, but the team continues to win.
No need for Julius Randle for the atmosphere to be electric at the Knicks! Last night, it was Obi Toppin and RJ Barrett who got confused during a time-out in the 3rd quarter. It was Tom Thibodeau and assistants who intervened to calm them down.
Nothing too bad, and as soon as they returned to the field, the two even hugged. “We are brothers. Everything’s good. We discussed it » explained Toppin, starting in place of Randle.
Same reaction from Barrett: ” Everything’s good ! We basically see each other every day. Who can tell me that he never had words with a member of his family? That’s just it, and right after the time-out, it was forgotten. »
For Thibodeau, this kind of clash happens every day. “Cameras are everywhere, and it probably happens more often than people realize. It was in the heat of the moment, and it calmed down immediately. If there is a problem, let them talk about it among themselves. When they then walked to the field, I knew everything was fine. »
For Thibodeau, the most important thing is to want to win together. “We moved on, and we won the game. When everyone wants to win, sometimes there are differences of opinion. We put the team before everything else, and that’s what we did. »
