That was the weakest technical ever called. He was simply pulling his injured shoulder away from Heyward...
Good deal was a BS call anyway
Do they take that bogus free throw away from Dallas now? lol
Amare needs to pick up his last Tech during the 2nd to last game, & sit out the last game before heading into the playoffs. That would give Amare a chance to pick up two T's during the playoffs before missing a game. Much better than being 1 tech away from a suspension heading into the playoffs.
Well, if the game against the Celtics wouldn't have any impact on the playoff picture to begin with; it wouldn't matter if Amare played or not.
I never knew the T's were reset during the playoffs though. If true, thats real good news for Amare & the Knicks. Good looking out.
STAT plays with a high level of intensity it's hard for him not to react when calls go awry. That's still no excuse just trying to explain he can't help himself, he's gonna react cuz that's how he plays, he's always at full intensity his game face is always on so if a guy shoves him he's gonna shove back, that's just how he rolls. Whenever he screams after a ref's call you can clearly see him catch himself but well after he's already let out his own frustration, that's just the person he is it will never change.
Good stuff, that T was complete BS.
Good news for us.
On the other hand it would have been nice to watch the team play without Amar'e, I think Melo would have gone for a 45-50 point night and we would have been better on defense with Shelden Williams, Jared Jeffries and Ronny Turiaf splitting STAT's minutes.
The ref should be disciplined for calling a frivolous technical like that. Did Haywood's T get rescinded as well?
Also, am I the only one who thinks it wouldn't be bad for Amar'e to sit out against Indy? It'll reset his tech count so he wouldn't be suspended for the rest of the season. As it stands now, he might pick up a real tech at some point and then be suspended for a big game against a tough opponent.
It doesn't reset. He gets one more suspension for every other tech 18, 20, 22 etc. And it doesn't carry over to the playoffs. It resets when the playoffs start and then they get 6 I believe, and get suspended on the 7th
The Hawks got destroyed yesterday and there facing Portland next, if we win these next two games and they lose against portland we will go on to 5th place.
