The New York Knicks suffered another loss on Thursday night at the hands of the Chicago Bulls, 119-115. At this point, it is clear that this team is not in a great place at the moment. It looks like the squad is now also starting to turn on each other following a heated moment between teammates Julius Randle and Evan Fournier at halftime.
The Knicks pair was seen arguing intensely on the court as the team headed back to the locker room for the halftime break. There was a bit of a shouting match between them and it was abundantly clear that the frustration among the players was beginning to boil over:

For his part, however, Randle was quick to play down the argument. According to the Knicks star, they quickly settled their disagreement as soon as he and Fournier got inside the locker room (h/t SNY Knicks Videos on Twitter):
"I can't let things stay in and be frustrated. I've got to talk to my teammates"

It looks like this was nothing more than a rather heated discussion between teammates in the middle of battle. No animosity appears to have spilled over between the pair, and as Randle said, at the end of the day, they will always have each other's backs.
Be that as it may, what cannot be denied is that there is a clear sense of frustration within the Knicks squad right now. New York has now lost three out of their last four games. The good news for them is that it's still very early in the season and they still have a lot of time to figure things out. These types of arguments are just going to be part of the process.
