The only good thing that came out of the New York Knicks' loss against the Sixers on Sunday was a video of OG Anunoby shooting pregame. The wing has been out since Jan. 27 with an elbow injury, but he should return soon.

New York Daily News' Kristian Winfield tweeted a video of Anunoby shooting threes. Winfield said that he didn't miss any of the threes he took.

Tom Thibodeau said Anunoby will travel with the team on their four-game road trip out West. New York will host Philadelphia (again) on Tuesday and the road trip will start on Thursday in Portland.
