Looked great against Dallas, but man, his defense just wasn't there against the Spurs.
That being said, Tony Parker burned us on the wing and we literally had no answer for him. Like the old Suns-Spurs games...
That stat is back?! Hes been playing amazing in the second half of the season lets see if he can keep it up
He playing well on BOTH ends of the floor and getting rebounds. Definitely having a good game.
i think hes playing the best he has since he became a knick. i have NEVER seen stat play defense so well
STAT has been full of energy as of late. He's playing defense and running down back on the floor on every possession. That chase down block he got on Brand was just a microcosm of how well our defense has been under Woody.
that block was HUGE for the knicks. it shows what a little bit of motivation can do to a person.
STAT looks like a totally different player, offensively and defensively.
I'm pretty sure the old STAT is back.
Had a feeling this thread would be about STAT. Was thinking about making one. He's showed signs in other games, this game he WAS worthy of being called STAT. That's what I'm talking about.
Let's hope so. Timing couldn't be better.
And to think it was only going to be Melo who reaped the benefits of D'Antoni's departure? STAT rejuvenated!
He was my favorite player last year, and if he comes back to form he'll be awarded that mantle again!
He's been playing well recently averaging 19.6 points out of 57% shooting adding 9.6 boards in the last three. But it's too early to say whether he's back or it's just a hot streak.
