    Agreed, we still got outrebounded and tried too many three's, there are signs we are trying to make our offense work better but it still looked weak and with no concept.

    Wow, wish Stat was out there with the guys having fun. What a balanced attack. Did you see the STATS ?? 5 players close to or over 20 points. The guys shared the ball and looked great. Ever see the Heat ? They play this way every day. We need to be less selfish and do the same. We can win with this team if we follow these steps. BTW Lin sucks, but i knew that before he came. Lets hope Baron Davis returns soon. I was proud to be a Knicks fan today. Happy new Years ALL

    Maybe that's why D'Antoni doesn't play Lin. I understand he sucks, but maybe he was onto something there.

    Welcome to Knicksonline, Ladies and gentlemen.

    Good win though, 3s won't fall like that all day but we played great and defense was great. Chandler went absolutely ham in the 4th

    Lin was clearly going for selfish, garbage minute points every time he touched the ball. If I were him I would have tried to knock out 4-5 assists. We don't have a pass-first point guard, he could have made a case for getting more minutes.

    But no.

    ^^^ IDK he didn't do anything to inspire confidence but the whole game the center (Jorts and Chandler) would make sure to stay back court to provide a soft pick so that TD or Bibby could get separation. This would at least get them to the 3 point line where they could work.

    When Lin went in Jerome was always down the court getting prepared to do a pick at the 3 point line. Without that backcourt pick Isiah thomas was able to apply back court pressure all the way up the court. Its a minor thing but it is relevant. You know the kings guards were told to press the knicks guards due to them playing sub par up to this game. Isiah just went in and did that to Lin.

    On the flip good coaching by D'antoni (go figure) to have the center set that back court pick. It at least gets the pgs to the three point line with some time on the clock in the half court set.

    Stat have to refine his game helluvalot.....
    Melo & Chandler showcase their veteranship by getting our young players
    involve in the Kings game.

    Chandler annnd Melo both set great screens for our young players to be
    apart of the offense....none of our big-3 players had set any decent screens
    in the previous 3 games to get other players involve in the offense.

    On a positive note we have held teams under 100 for three straight games. This already a feat I'm pretty sure we did not accomplish all of last season. Maybe this injury to STAT is a blessing in disguise. After seeing the ball movement tonight it will open his eyes on how he should adjust his game and stop chucking up 18 footers and driving to the lane with 2 or 3 defenders right there to meet him at the rim.

    Great point on the high-pick....but that was not Dantoni's call....that was Jordan following his natural instinct as a center....something we never had in our lineups with Dantoni as headcoach.

    Ahh cool... On another note we all know how a lot of head coaches played as Knicks at one point or another. Tyson Chandler seems like one of those players...

    Walker passing and Fields' off the ball play connecting I think three times in a row near the end of the game made me happy. They were all basically the same play lol.
