Any decent coach who looked at the box scores of the last 5 games would coem to an obvious conclusion: STOP SHOOTING THREES.
Instead, the Knicks come out and shoot 19 of them in the first half. They make three. Yep, 3-19 from dowtown in the 1st half! WOW.
16 wasted possessions. SSOL is supposed to give you extra possessions, but what's the point if those are lost possessions?
Shooting 17-34 on non-3-point shots though.
Mason-Douglas-Gallo 1-12 from 3-point range. Wake up coach, these guys aren't shooters. If they are they're nothing more than practice shooters, b/c it doesn't happen during games.
Lmao @ STAT landing on the Nuggets dancers! Nice Bday present to STAT! Hope he copped a few feals!
The 3 ball loses us another game.
Gallo looks really good when cutting, and Felton looks better the more our wings cut. But still, changing the game plan isn't an option.
We can win this game from the stripe, from cuts, and from interior to perimeter ball movement.

STAT misses another 2 huge 4th Q free throws. (5 misses on the night).
Great game from Fields. Even Gallo have a strong effort (minus the 3-point shooting.
100% co-sign. I've ben saying this for a while now. Get his minutes up, and then slot him in as our 2 starter.

But I actually kinda like that since he'd replace the huge role D'ant has allowed Douglas to assume. Plus, this game aside, field's has been neutered and not really designated as being a bigtime part of the offense.
I missed most of this game but why the **** has gallo takin more shots then stoudemire and fields?
I notice this every game with fields, he needs to take more shots. But what a night the kids having
Nice job by Gallo hittin the boards
Stoudemire for three!!!!!!!!
Miss 10 free throws.
Miss 20 3-pointers.
Miss 4 huge free throws down the stretch. Same old stuff.
We should be taking 15 3 pointers, a max of 18...29 is way too many
Just look at Gallo's reel in the OP from last seasons game. Final sequence form him. He slashes and drives powerfully and fluidly for a reverse layup and 1.

Which is it?
Now he's vastly improved a lethal slashing and driving games all season, with sick consistency when he is at the line.
And what a surprise...Billy Walker...gee, wonder if he could have helped in all those 4th q meltdowns when Felton-Douglas-MasonJr were laying bricks like pro construction workers.
FREE BILLY WALKER
UNLEASH LANDRY FIELDS
I think it's time AR logs more minutes. At center. I guess Moz isn't goo enough for d'ant to run some offensive plays through him to keep teams honest n ****
