Is this lack of scoring a concern for anyone?
First off we can all agree that the Knicks are playing great basketball right now and at the right time. Last night's game was a great all around team effort. Even with the ejection of JR and all the hype surrounding Bean towns tragedy we cam out and opened a can of whoop-azz on em.
But here is an interesting fact. We ended the season with an exact 100.0 scoring avg. Defensively we were at 95.7 Throughout the first 3 games we scored 85,87,90 points for an avg. of 87.3 And the defense?...Well it was great at 78,71,76 for a even 75 avg.
Miami coincidentally, avg. 102.9 vs. 95 for the regular season but their first 3 games avg. 104 vs. 88
We are not scoring a lot of points. Sure we went up a little each game but I am concerned that 90 points is not going to cut it in round 2 and certainly not for the ECF or Finals. The defense is right on and no issues with that but don't we need to score a little more? (Insert my need for STAT in round 2-3).
They BANG AND WE MUST bang BACK...
I HAD WRITTEN A POST THAT INDIANA WAS A BUNCH OF THUGS...and someone responded that they were just playing playoff basketball. This was in the last game against them in the regular season.
I looked at the JR replay on the elbow to TERRY. Had it been lower to the floor no problemo but it was an upward thrust to the head ala Metta World PUTZ's elbow to Harden's head. So yes we need the bigs...if just to be ENFORCERS.
We will beat Indiana ...we can beat Miami but there's allota IF'S.
I agree the scoring will come as the Knicks shooting has not been stellar..it can only get better.
