Knicks roll with Cam Reddish over Quentin Grimes down the stretch

With the game on the line, arguably the Knicks’ best perimeter defender was on the bench.

After helping limit Ja Morant to eight points and four turnovers in the first half,

Quentin Grimes didn’t get a crack at him in the fourth quarter of the Knicks’ 127-123 loss to the Grizzlies.

“Just the way the game was unfolding,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “I liked Cam [Reddish] a lot, too.

That group was rolling pretty good, so just stayed with them.

Whatever works best for our team, that’s what we’re going to go with.”

Reddish was part of the unit that rallied the Knicks from a 10-point deficit entering the fourth quarter into the lead,

and he hit some big shots in his first game back from a right groin injury.

Thibodeau also liked the idea of giving Morant a different look with the lanky Reddish. Morant,

though, ended up scoring 10 points in the final quarter including the go-ahead basket with 13.9 seconds to go.

He wound up with a triple-double of 27 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds.
