    Yup. He's been EVERYTHING we could DREAM for at the 3. Hopefully we can hit a stride as a team and he WILL get considerations for MVP. F Le'Bitch, son.

    Indeed Melo has been playing great.

    Amar'e played great tonight too. While Melo seemed to outshine him, 23 points on 43% shooting with 12 rebounds is pretty good when you're going up against JaVale McGee

    And Tyson Chandler with NINE offensive rebounds and 15 total rebounds. This is what we brought him here for.

    Unsung hero of the night? Bibby. Clutch 3's FTW.

    Yeah, I like Shumpert alot, and Anthony is obviously a beast, but my 2 biggest things were Stoudemire, while not amazing, looked much closer to what I grew accustomed to last year, and Chandler bounding and astounding which we greatly needed. To me any Chandler points are a bonus, but we need him in double digit rebounds nightly and altering plenty of shots. Agree with many peoples saying Shumpert, Fields, Anthony, Stoudemire and Chandler as starting 5 for the time being.

    Think we may have something special in Shumpert. Guy was playing the point, barking orders, waving stat and melo around the floor. That was fun to watch from a youngster.

    Word. Would that WNY refer to WNY, NJ? That's were I was raised.

    STAT showed finally, Melo was...Melo. And IMAX was the breath of fresh air being pumped into our lungs of longing.

    Nah I'm not a tri-stater, in this instance WNY stands for Western New York. I visit the city as well as New Jerz at least twice yearly though and love the area.

    I said it before the season and ill say it again...Melo could get himself the scoring title this year. Right now its between him and Lebron, everybody else is about 3 points behind.

    With Bosh surging, and Wade to only improve......Melo could well get it.

    Durant always pesky, though, even with Harden finally being unleashed.

    Default Melo Melo Melo Imax Imax Imax

    Melo could easily get the scoring title, especially if Antoni's offensive game plan is to give the ball to Melo and let's see what happens. Did Melo take the last 20 shots tonite or what? I understand going to the hot hand, but no plays whatsoever? Knicks are so lucky they won tonite.

    how come Antoni doesn't foul when up by 3 at the end of games? Even Clyde Frazier said he'd foul in that situation, and sounded exasperated! What does Mike know that Clyde does not? what a D'ick!

    John Wall busting through the matador swiss cheese defense at will, until the mighty Shumpert made an appearance. Imax's +/- would have been better than +20 if Melo wasn't chucking at the end, allowing the worst team in the league back in the game. Live by the 3...

    Shumpert needs to start, better PG than Toney D by far. probably a better SG than Fields. wouldn't mind seeing Shump/Fields, or Bibby/Shump as starting backcourt, but the Bib needs to show more consistency. Toney D is sixth man material and a shooting guard. let's just take the ball out of his hands, and take that PG pressure off. OK?

    nice game thread, but calling for Balkmania to start over STAT? I DUNNO!!! that's just kinda lame.

    I did not like new sportscaster Spiro, he seemed to be saying STAT's name wrong, and that irked me to no end! was it just me?

    not a great game, but I'll take the win.
    Antoni's gotta go. i hate him and his lame coaching.

    and what's with his dumb brother just sitting there when the Knicks won?

    Stoudemire and Anthony for the 2nd time I've seen have played off eachother so well tonight. Some analyst are talking and saying Melo took too many shots(31) but in the last 3 minutes D'Antoni went iso and he took 7 shots, and most of his shots came late in the clock and were rushed, nonetheless he's playing at MVP level but most likely wont get consideration.

    All in all we only had 5 guys score over 2 points which we cant have.

    I mean Melo took a lot of shots but his percentage was 48%. I'm pretty sure if you knew a player was going to make 48% of his shots, you'd tell him to get the ball and start chucking ASAP.

    I see your point. TD blew so much ass tonight. That punk couldn't even get a damn point against the Wizards, the worst team in the NBA. Seriously his lack of passing ability and PG skills is pathetic.

    I hope by now KO will finally realize that you can't take a shooting guard and make him into a PG just cause you need him to be one. Like I've said since last year, TD is an SG, he will always be an SG.

    I think he'd be a better PG if we knew earlier that we were going to ditch Billups, though. Then TD could've spent the summer working on his court vision and studying the film and game plan. Honestly, though, he doesn't seem capable of being a good PG it just doesn't seem like it, IMAX got that role down.

    One thing I noticed from IMAX is that even though his shot selection is not great, his decision making as a PG looked pretty solid. He found the open man, created offense, and didn't turn the ball over that much (2 TOs in 37 minutes is pretty good). If he can produce games like this (6 or 7 assists, 10-15 points), he'll be a fine starting PG who can shift over to the 2 guard position when the Baron is healthy enough to play. His shot selection obviously still needs work but again he's a rookie, it'll get better with time.

    Watched the game at my friend who's a huge Knicks fans house I like what I seen from Shumpert he looked a lot more comfortable than TD running the point he needs to start. Also Amare finally seems to be going after rebounds, Chandler with a great game, and Melo continues playing like a top 5 player in the league.

    Word, somethings don't seem as big, but Chandler getting mad boards was huge, and Stoudemire looking more aggressive and not being a total stiff was also huge
