They're on Pace to score llike 140 points
amare says he was never taught d... i believe him... most of his career he's been coached by dantoni.. and has been pretty terrible at rebounding... last year tho he was a little better under gentry...
So, they've got around 17 second chance points and 11 offensive rebounds. Stoudamire is killing the team. What's the point of scoring 25 points every game if you're gonna concede 40 from your personal opponent. Anthony is the only one playing at the moment. I kind of feel bad for the choice he made to come and play for the Knicks. This team has the potential to emotionally drain him.
No Defence. Literally None.
We Get To The Rack At Will Offensively, Great.
But There's Nothing Happening Defensively. Where Is The Post Double Team? Nj Can't Hit All Day! They Can't Score Above 60 In 2 Consecutive Halves.
How Does Our Captain, Of All People, Just Allow Opponents To Make Him Look Like A Fool?
What Happened To The P&r, As Well?
This Is Embarrassing, Frustrating, Flabbergasting.
If We're One Of The Absolute Worst Defensive Teams In The League, Then Why, After 70+ Games Are We Still Sipping On The Same Poison?
Effort Is Effort, But Unless We Learn It Defensively, We'll Consistently Lose To Inconsistent Teams, Center Or No.
DWalsh has done all he can as a GM. We get solid players and he doghouses them with his short rotation.
I think this latest trade is a revelation. Its exposed his inability to do more than run a system, but coach. You can coach effort, its called motivation. When players don't buy in to your system, find another way to sell it. Having 2 superstars and losing to the likes of Indiana, Milwaukee, and Cleveland multiple times, is about coaching.
I hope Dolan and DWalsh see it as we have. I might expect a dip after the trade, but the team looks absolutely lost. During the game, they turn to their coach for leadership, and he looks lost too.
If the Knicks come out early with a basket then a 3 and cut it to 5, I think they can make a run and win it. I also think Melo is going to get a triple-double, and Toney Douglas is gonna do what Toney Douglas do.
The Rockets beat NJ last night via the fast break.
Why can't we do that? Because we don't defend the paint and don't rebound to potential. We don't allow ourselves opportunities to exploit our athleticism unless it's off an opponent's turnover.
