    Agreed. He wouldn't let Dwill get past him. Most of Dwill's points came off of picks where Lin usually played under

    wow only one person won the bet.
    4 rebound for Statue

    This game blows.

    The refs was horrible
    The net got so lucky with the 3 point shots

    Lin need to continue play his game, drive to the basket and be aggressive.
    and improve on his defense.

    I don't even care if STAT is scoring 20 game. What happened to this mans efficiency and dominance from the inside? It's unreal.

    Garnet's numbers went way down with the Celtics, but he upped the ante with his team play, killer instinct, and efficiency.
    But it hasn't been gradual up to this point. We are still in the very early stages. This is ONE GAME and some people are going crazy that our 2 superstars can't connect with our new superstar. This team has a big adjustment period to go through it's gonna take at least a few weeks for these guys to get fully comfortable on the floor together. From that point on if they have not gelled, serious questions need to be asked.

    And the refs compounded our errors and maximized everything the Nets did good.

    Doesn't help when Melo plays like ass in the crunch, too. Not even getting into Amare's foibles.
    We missed plenty of jump shots, which is the reason to start using your postup game. We have none though.

    Down 8 with 5 minutes left you put Melo in the box and force the Nets to double or foul. Something good will happen. Instead we got STAT & Fields shooting 18 footers. This isnt good basketball...

    Melo only took 11 shots because he was passing like everyone wants. Instead of revamping the system how about hiring a coach that can handle all this talent? Fair enough?

    ehh i need to see a couple of practices with Lin/Melo to be sold on that.

    if thats the case

    Melo/amare = not a fit

    Lin/melo = not a fit

    Chandler/Amare = not a fit defenses collapse on Amare when he takes it in. He needs a stretch 5 (barganani type) like he had in phoenix he had (frye) to stretch the floor.

    I'm inclined to agree, too.

    Shump has been playing real well, both sides of the ball. But especially his D, and crunch time play.

    Idk if anyone could overcome the refs and the asinine play of Melo and inefficiency of Amare, though.

    Our overall D wasn't even bad, despite Williams playing lights out.

    We just bricked so many good ****ing shots I can't even count.

    Truthfully, Lin & Co started to turn **** on at the end and poise us for a comeback. Amare was a part of that run, too.

    Then Melo and Amare bricked and TO'd us into oblivion.

    This one is on MDT.

    Played Melo too much even though he was rusty. Sat Chandler for way too long, who cares if he might get fouled out when game was getting out of hand.

    This game was RIGGED BY the NBA. My reasoning is they want to hype this melo and knicks not working thing. Great publicity for the NBA.

    How many more games will the Knicks lose to the worst teams in the NBA?

    I just had a feeling that the Nets were going to look like the '86 Celtics tonight.

    New York fans is the problem. We need to chill.

    Yankee fans get upset over a loss in April.
    Knicks fans get upset over everything
    and Giants fans scream Eli suck...

    As Yogi Berra said. It ain't over until it's over...Chill

    I agree somewhat, but you have to use Melo's strengths when we're close. If it calls for ISO's so be it. The Nets were intent on not letting Lin beat them tonight. Go to someone else then. This offense doesnt have to run through Lin all the time.

    They game plan for Lin let Melo kill them and vice versa...
