During the second quarter, the two teams combined for exactly 15 points. LeBron James has probably scored 15 points in a quarter more than 10 times.
The Knicks scored 8 points and the Magic scored 7 while the rest of the country averted their eyes in pure horror. New York shot 3-20 and Orlando went 3-19 while setting an NBA record for the fewest combined points scored in a quarter.
"It was a shootout tonight, wasn't it?" Orlando Magic forward Willie Green joked after the game. At least he had some humor about things.
The Knicks and Magic have missed a combined 105 shots.

Cole Aldrich led the way for the Knicks with 19 points and 14 rebounds, while Tobias Harris was the high point man for the Magic with 15, which tells you all you need to know about this one. The tanking Knicks couldn't even tank properly, winning the game 80-79. Tim Hardaway Jr. hit the game-winning 3, and then did the J.R. Smith celebration, as if he was unaware the he had just participated in one of the worst games of all time.
The Knicks season mercifully ends on Wednesday.
