Detroit fell to the New York Knicks on Wednesday, losing 94-85. Shooting goaltender Hamidou Diallo put in a good effort for the losing team with a double-double on 31 points and 13 rebounds.

Meanwhile, San Antonio’s 2021 edition ended in a 118-105 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. Little forward Keldon Johnson didn’t really make a difference for San Antonio; Johnson played for 27 minutes but only racked up six points on a 2-on-12 shot.
