My simple analysis. Lin was passive at times, although he produced. He needs to keep his dribble like Williams was doing to him. Chandler was out most of the key stretches. We had no one to bother Williams (then again, Williams is REALLY good). As far as offensive fluidity, there were many cases that Melo stayed on the weak side. He didn't mess-up the PnR. And, I thought I'd never say this, but Jeffries didn't play enough minutes. He plays good man-on-man defense, particularly with 3s and 4s, and good help defense. He anticipates and moves his feet and hustles. Got to give him is props for effort.
I I think the Knicks will be peaking in 3 weeks. I'm not at all worried. They should play like a 3 or 4 seed. Hopefully the knicks can take the 6th seed at the very least (fifth seed will be great). They'll need to win 15 of 20 games or at least 11 of 15 games to make it close
