Can't you see our guys is running on empty? It's a shorter season with less time for rest in between games. It's no need to use an 8-man rotation at this point. Can you get a guy a few minutes rest here and there then do so. Especially now when you have guys that usually don't see any playing time at all playing 20-30 minutes a night..
I dont expect Lin to beast out every night he played great tonight and made plays when it counted the most, great hustle, great energy and heart from the team tonight and we are 2 games away from being back to .500, we should be able to win the next 3 games ( raptors, kings and hornets easy teams) and be at 16-15... What a turn around for the team man we were sitting at 8-15 now were at 13-15... Amazing
exactly he has to get more of a blow ...Lin been playing 38 plus mins a nite most on the squad ...got to be taxing when just a week ago the kid didnt play at all... hopefully baron D can come back soon and helps out ...imagine if BD has anything left how good that will be for the team
So happy to see we are continuing this!!!
Straight to number 1!
All Balkman gives you is the hustle and D, but he couldn't hit a barn on a good day. In this system because Balkman's J is universally disrespected around the league, at the position he'd play teams could easily help off him to shut down the paint or rotate to other shooters, which consequently makes our O easier to defend/shut down. Got it.
Enough with Balkman.....
Look at Walker's =/- stat in the Laker game....+15.
I agree he chucks but having him on the court does something for the Knicks..
Balkman in means they will guard 4 men.
