Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers point guard Miles “Deuce” McBride saw his first real playing time in the NBA for the New York Knicks and showed that he could hold his own.
McBride scored 8 points (3-8 from the field), and had 4 rebounds and 1 assist in 20 minutes of play off the bench in the Knicks’ 105-96 loss to the Golden State Warriors.

Following the game, Knicks’ veteran guard Derrick Rose was asked about Miles McBride’s performance and at first, he didn’t know who the reporter was talking about until someone said “Deuce.”
Rose then said the following about McBride: “Deuce is a good young player, man. His confidence is high. Of course his defense is top-tier. He just needs the time and hopefully Coach Thibs gives him the time. But we know how good he is. It’s all about opportunity in this league.”
