    Statistically, Stat had a great game but the little things the box score don't record he was horrible at. His switching and defensive awareness was pretty lame. That's normal though right?

    Biggest mistake that the Knicks made was trading Trevor Ariza. Who would have predicted that he would become this good of a player?

    STAT is what he is. Defensively he needs plenty of work, but he isnt the reason we lost this game. Fields, Shump. Walker and Novak couldnt hit the side of a barn tonight. That, and the turnovers cost us...

    20mil for that kind of result is unacceptable.
    Yeah your right Stat blew defense so many times, I hope he watches the tape and realizes how bad of court vision he has... But not only that it was us missing free throws and our turnovers that hurt us... I cant wait for Melo and JR to come on Sunday because one Melo is my dude and idc what you guys say he can score and he will cut down Lin's TO's and JR is another scorer and is also good

    i see 3pt shooting as a luxury compared to defense out of your bigs, with the exception of our 3pt specialist

    The Knicks need to put this behind them and beat Dallas. It seems like the last time that they won a home game against Dallas was when Rolando Blackman played for the Mavericks.

    I dont like all the 3 pt shots being taken by players that cant make a high%. Novak just had an off night.

    The defense was fine for the most part. We just got nothing from anyone offensively except STAT and Lin...

    Our defense was pretty bad actually, Bellinelli was wide open so many times and the ridicolous cuts to the baskets they made were just awful defense

    they made cutting off passing lanes look easy, which was magnified by us doing the opposite

    We gave up 89 points to a team that was primed for this game. You knew going in Monty and Ariza wanted this one bad. The entire team played like it. You gotta understand this is an NBA team they're gonna score some. We couldnt hit shots...

    He's shot ~39% from the field ever since leaving the Lakers.

    He's solid on defense and while he's confident on offense it's extremely shotty. Plus he only makes 2/3rds of his freethrows on average.

    When you fall behind early, you have to gain ground with offense.

    The Knicks couldn't bring it with offense tonight, because their roleplayers finally started missing some shots. Fields was dreadful in particular.

    And you can't blame this one on STAT, he played well, especially on the boards. This one is on Turnovers (Lin) and the inability to hit a single shot from downtown...

    guys calm down Ariza is a good defender with size and speed as a SG/SF. His man was walker who is streaky. As soon as he figured out walker was a no show he simply helped defend the entire night while the rest of his team played zone. This game was a perfect example of why the knicks wanted JR Smith since his ability to shoot would of been great alongside a player like Melo who can also create shots for himself. that would of opened up the lane for guys like Amare, Lin, Fields, and shump. It also would of game Chandler a 1 on 1 chance to get rebounds.

    + positives of the night
    Amare was trying on defense guys and he was fighting for rebounds.

    - Negative of the night
    The knicks had to many turnovers
    the knicks missed too many free throws

    A lot of you might not talk about this here a lot but half the knicks offense is slashing in the paint trying to get the calls so they can shoot free throws..... its a smart counter measure for the streaky shooting the team has had all year. Today if the knicks mad those Free throw shots they would of won the game.

    Its the damn Catch 22 the knicks have always had. They need the 3 to go down to open the lanes. Without an outside threat defenses can play zone which clogs up the the knicks slashing.

    Lin's TO are to much and I felt the refs could of gave him a call when the Hornets we're abusing him trying to get turnovers. However like always Refs treat away teams like home teams when they play at MSG.....
