Playoff like atmosphere tonight. Tyson, Melo and JR balled their asses off. Worry remains how to overcome the fact we lack a quality PG. Beyond poor from Felton at both ends tonight.
Why was Shump not guarding Curry when he came back in? The few possessions he guarded him he did a good job.
Told you we got this. :gony:
Worried about foul trouble probably, dude was on 4 fouls.

excellent games from Chandler and JR, keeping Knicks grounded while Curry took flight.
to think Knicks could have had this young gun... one lottery pick away... sigh.
Wood Son has got to come up with a way for Knicks to guard the hot hand.
Kyrie Irving, Curry. i thought Shump would be the stopper, but not to be tonite.
really unbelievable game. it's still sinking in. good win.
Curry looks like a little version of reggie miller.He has his game and body build.He is going to have a very good career.
Glad for the WIN ....
but helll No .. we almost lost to a team that use the same exact system as we do .. we had no answer for an ISO-Curry 54 points in our house. Plus GS were missin their abidextrous double-double defensive rebounder David Lee.
The thought of making Curry have to run back on defense to defend a moving without the ball Felton or JR for 4 to 6 straight minutes never crossed Woodson or Felton mind on how to stop hot shootin Curry.
Felton JR Melo slow-ball of walking the ball up-court on every offensive possession, then standing on the 3-ball line for half the shot clock let Curry rest on defense to have 54 points of energy on offense.
All Felton had to do was push/run the ball on every offensive-possesion, plus keep movin with or without the ball when Curry's defending him.
I am sure Felton was wiped for playing 39 minutes,,,,,,,,,,,,Again Pablo only playing 12 minutes.........
Woodson needs to think and strategize,,,,,,,,,,,,,he is going to keep pounding the square peg into the round whole win or lose....
Yes Felton got the steal in the end and rebound but he missed 2 key 3 pointers and 2 foul shots...when will woodson wake up and limit his minutes,,,,,,,especially with a guy like Pablo who is good for 17-18 minutes a game,
LEE playing and the Knicks lose.....I mean Tyson not having 27 rebounds with Lee in there
Yeah don't do that again..... Was stuck at work trying to watch but I did catch the finish!!! Damn. We went up by ten early and I thought we would cruise then I looked back and Curry was unconscious....KNICKS perimeter defense is TURRIBLE, at some point you had to trap on the offensive end to make somebody else beat ya like GS did MELO...it took MELO and JR to overcome Curry's night and a Monster night by CHandler on boards

I hope Knicks dont loose to much energy for Wizards game.
^ The Wizards game is a must win, these Knicks can't afford any more "slipages" and missing out on W's to some losing teams. Our schedule looks pretty tough, there won't be many that much winnable games.
Woodson is actually tearing this Knicks team apart with his rotation lineup .. We are at home playing a David Lee-less GS Warrior team, and Woody gives 40 minute to Tyson, Melo, Felton, and 36 minute to JR.
The above 4 Knicks-players have showed no-chemistry in a lineup on offense or defense in 53 games.
They still cant complete a fastbreak-basket after 53 games.
They are to slow lookin lost in a transition-offense, so they walk the ball for a halfcourt-set on every possession.
They are so slow at getting back on offense AND defense, that their lazy-performance give all our oponent confidence & energy to beat us.
Another DNP to Copeland, who PnR with PG-Prig is better than PG-Felton & Tyson.
Plus Copeland Defensive-effort is equal to Stat, Melo, Novak, JR, and Felton ..
Copeland gives us 4 fouls to give, rather than all our 40 minute players letting oponent go by them to score ...
:gony: pitiful Knicks win in MSG
another game of misses for JKiddo. why is he starting?
Novak, no-threes = non-presence. give his minutes to Cope.
STAT for Kidd in starting 5. please. maybe coming off the bench
will allow Kidd more minutes with 2nd unit, as #1 PG. who knows,
he needs a kick in the a$$ to get his game back to where it was at
start of season.
although Shump's not scoring, he is looking better, esp on defensive
end (6 steals!), he needs to drive more and get the rust off... quickly!
nice to see K-Mart, although a non-factor, he did tie up a couple men
on defense, but he looks lost on offense. hopefully he's working hard
Melo and JR were on for most of game, especially JR with clutch 3's,
but Knicks cannot rely on those 2. live and die by the 3.
however, I liked Melo's passing and distributing, he needs to do more
of that, and Knicks will be unbeatable.
Chandler the man handler! just phenomenal on the boards. as soon
as he went out the first time, GS came back. lucky for Knicks DLEE
not much you can do when one of the league's best shooters is hot.
Kiya's suggestions to run the ball up court by Feltip makes sense.
keeping Shump glued to Curry all game might have made sense as well.
just don't let him get the ball. concentrate on doubling the guy.
c'mon now, disrupt his flow, knock him down, anything! jeez!
the entire NBA world is abuzz with young Curry's performance.
I know I won't soon forget it.
This game was the first time i saw Curry since he was a rookie, and man has he gotten 100x better....Congrats on the 50+ SC. Amazing we could had drafted him and passed on him. A lot of teams thought he was too light (170 lbs). A great win regardless for us
and he is zillion time better than overrated CP3. But just read that Cp3 will be FA in 2k14 as Lebron.
Remember Dell Curry from Charlotte.
