People that are putting money on the 2016-17 New York Knicks on a Friday night in April are already in a dark place as it is, but this latest loss vs the spread had to really hurt.
With the Memphis Grizzlies leading the Knicks 99-89 in the game’s final seconds, Grizzlies rookie guard Wade Baldwin IV was dribbling out the clock, and then decided to toss up a meaningless three from just in front of half-court at the buzzer. Swish.
And the line was Knicks +12.5…

I had Knicks +12.5. This is how the game ended.

And that has to be the bad beat of the NBA season. Brutal.
