While currently, the New York Knicks are up in their game on the road against the Minnesota Timberwolves, they have had a few of their moments–especially on the defensive side of the ball–that show why so many people have made them the butt of jokes, and that was no more evident than what happened when someone forgot to keep an eye on Chase Budinger.

On this play, J.J. Barea came down with the ball, and then after a little maneuvering, was able to find Budinger with the easy pass that led to the easy throw down in the process.

Still, though, the Knicks are up in this one and should be able to maintain that lead, as long as they can keep plays like this to a minimum.
