That's why coach D'antoni lambasted him at the timeout. You don't worry about fouls in that situation. Know your situations! That play cost us the game IMO.
^^ Word. If he fouls out its no big deal. We still had chandler waiting to come back in should that happen. You need to fight and contest every possession in a tight game. Toney didn't do it that time and we got burned.
trade gallo the guy sucks ass!
You guys can really be conditional fans.
Tough loss, but the Sixers usually are a tough team when playing us. This is a team we must work on not letting them get their runs and playing how they want.
TD did make a bad decision when he gave up on the play (none of his
teammates called the high screen), but the Knicks lost this game at the
end of the 3rd quarter.
I was caught-up watching the Jets game, thinking Philly without Iggy was
a easy win for the Knicks. Doug Collins has always been a bum coach, although
as a player he was the man.
Here is the reason why the Knicks lost to Philly:
Mozgov getting 14 mpg (shouldve got 22 mpg or 4 fouls)
Fields getting 20 mpg (shouldve got 32 mpg)
Chandler getting 24 mpg (shouldve got 30 mpg)
Douglas getting 26 mpg (shouldve got 30 mpg)
And Felton/Amare/and Gallo receiving above 33+ minutes of playingtime
a piece to form a future trio lineup vs a mediocre Iggyless 76ers team were
the reason why the Knicks LOST.
Take a good look at our oponents (they are a 20 win season team without Iggy).
Philly's Jrue Holiday & rookie Turner are not 35+ mpg player in the NBA.
Rookie Evan Turner had his best NBA game today vs Knicks (14 pts, 3 ast, 10 rbds, on 60% fga).
Jrue Holiday 43 mpg outplayed Felton on both sides of the court.
Elton Brand performed like the 20-10 All-star he was 4 years ago on Turiaf
and Gallo today.
And PG-Lou Williams added 19 points off the bench
Is kinda weird Chandler wasn't in the 4th quarter a lot.
Lou was fouled too much. That's one of the keys next time we play them, to not go for those fakes.
It was a painful tough loss....we move on and remember the goal
Tough loss to swallow since Iggy wasnt even on the team. If we want to make the playoffs we got to take advantage of teams like this. Hopefully we come back strong next game.
I think Chandler really needs to find a way to get quality shots and drive a lot more. He needs to drive more and stop chucking 3s and long dribble jumpers. He was hot for a few games, but he needs to calm down. Consider comparing his stats to Lou Williams (their sixth man) Chandler shot 14 shots and only 4 free throws. Lou had 12 shot and 14 FT attempts! Even Douglas had at least had 7 freebies.
Considering him and Felton had bad shooting night, it really could have been worse.
The Knicks did plenty to win the game too, like outrebounding the Sixers 49 to 45. And, outboarding them on the offensive glass 14 to 8.
We were right in it until Douglas facked up on that screen. That was a back-breaking shot from Holiday.
