29% FG percentage. Pathetic...
2nd quarter 2-7 from 3. Now shooting 38% overall.
Houston shooting 56% overall.
And people think Baron Davis is going to be our savior? LMFAO! This team as currently coached UNDER Dumbtoni couldn't beat the Liberty.
If they'd taken 6 less 3's and posted up the rest of the time we'd be winning on the road. Jordan or Scola (both are killing us in the paint) might be in foul trouble. Making the game much easier to manage.
But you know....the players aren't hungry enough, and when Baron gets back....we'll be better.
That's why we took so many 3's in the game, cause Isiah Thomas said the key to basketball.....isn't basketball. It's that camaraderie between teammates, and Charles Smith crying/apologizing and ****.
It has nothing to do with our coach who refuses to rein in his god damn players, it's some ****ing quote in a Bill Simmons book, or Baron Davis' absence, or Dolan interfering with progress, or Melo being selfish, or STAT being stupid, or the lockout, or the non-gelling, or some other ancillary, secondary, issue.
It's clearly not the coaching, right?
I don't need any hands to count how many times we featured our 6'10'' 260 lbs, strong + quick POWER forward on the low block...I need no hands...because we didn't do it.

It's impossible to watch this team. Shoot 30+ threes, and end games with 20 unforced turnovers.
Who can watch this offense?
I got in car last night. 3rd quarter. Drove for 20 minutes. They had about 15 possessions: 1-8 from 3, w/ 5 turnovers. I think they scored 5 points in 7 minutes.
Like the spurt in 4th, when Douglas shot 0-6 from the field w/ 5 turnovers.
When do you bench a player?
He pulls Shumpert for not allowing Wade to dunk, but he lets Douglas shoot away?
All the Knicks players has no other choice but to perform to the flawed-
habits taught by headcoach Dantoni in order to get playingtime.
If Jordan Hill or Mozgov were able to hit 1 out of 5 shots from the 3-ball line
they both wouldve got playingtime with the Knicks. Bigmen defense is not a
necessity in Dantoni's rotation....the 1-9 record Knicks poor-poor coaching of
defensive-center Tyson Chandler has no design screen plays, or low post-up
plays, or pick n roll plays for the PG to call-out when oponents have a weak
defender on Melo, or Stat, or Tyson.
On offense....why isnt Tyson Chandler taking his bigman defender outside
the paint so Tyson Chandler bigbody can screen and pick for our PG?
plus that would open the lane to the paint for a slashing Stat to the basket.
We all had to notice Tyson Chandler's defender is always in the paint to stop
our inside scoring, which has also forced our slashers (Stat/Melo/Fields/Shump)
to shoot from the peremeter throughout Tyson Chandlers 35+ minutes per game.
YES-YES-YES....we have the worst bigmen headcoach in the NBA.
In Jared Jefferies 6 or more seasons with the Knicks, every Knicks oponent
never-never-never defend Jefferies....why havnt the Knicks coaching-staff
taken advantage of that by having Jefferies practice a 10 or 15 foot back-
board shot so Jefferies defender could stop double-teaming our top scorers?
Time to do the math.....
The Houston Rockets is 9-1 from having a solid bench of backup players in
their 10+ man rotation (combo-Dradgic & Lee, SF-Bud, PF-Hill, F/C-Paterson).
The Knicks is 1-9 from having a mixed-up bench in their 8+ man rotation
(PG-Bibby, SG-Walker, PG-TD, PF-Jorts or SF-JJ).
