New Years’s resolution for Kevin Knox: turn all these sick first-quarter performances into sick full-game performances. There’s probably some stats out there that illustrate his hot starts more exactly, but I’m feeling like, right now, he’s scoring roughly 90 percent of his points in the opening 12 minutes of games.
If that was indeed his New Year’s resolution, it’s off to a bad start. He scored 13 points in the first quarter of this one, getting me hyped for AT LEAST 20. I should’ve known that he’d only get two more buckets the whole rest of the game, causing his team to lose and bringing shame upon his family.
The good thing about New Year’s resolutions is, if you mess up right away at the beginning of the year, you can just throw up your hands, say “I tried”, and forget about the whole thing. Personally, I was going to go to the gym and get in 30 minutes of weight-lifting/staring-at-females-in-yoga-pants per day. Guess what I didn’t do yesterday! Now I’m home free! I really gave it my best effort (I even put on my workout clothes before continuing to sit on my butt) but I just came up short.
