can we get a break?
On the bright side, at least the game ended perfectly so that we can all catch the shows that start at 11 P.M.! That's a positive, right?!
Just one comment about the game.........
Jeremy Lin SINGLE-HANDEDLY kept this game close........ His defense in that game wasn't good....... His defense in that game wasn't great....... His defense in that game was PHENOMENAL.
Too bad this team can't rebound.
Our stars disappear in the clutch.
7-17 is not clutch, Lin should have had plays called for him in the 4th quarter. 8-14 proven he can hit the shot over and over.
Anyone else notice Amare and Carmelo being out-rebounded half the game?
I don't understand why people keep screaming Melo is clutch and plays are being called for Melo to "clutch it". He's an asset. You keep throwing it up with 30% average and of course you are going to hit some shots if given enough "volume".
Amare missed several opportunities, not ready for passes, open jumper, rebounds half the game. But at least he is being aggressive. His games not 100% yet.
If you have a guy that wins it 1 out of 10 games that is not clutch. It just means he has clutched it before. Novak has as well, so has Lin. But who is more consistent - the most consistent guy when the game is on the line is Lin. He's a 4th quarter beast if GIVEN the opportunity and playing to his strength instead of deferring to guys that aren't paying attention and burning the clock - refusing to play defense or rebound.

I'd trade Stat for a mediocre defensive player any day of the week. I'm so tired of his lack of defense and overall goofiness of offense. Stat is responsible for about 15 Knicks turnovers every game.
I hate Stat, I hope he blows out both of his knees and never plays again for the Knicks. I'm gonna post a video of me burning my Stat Jersey. He's the reason we suck now, it's too obvious. If we could just get rid of him and MDA we'd be set. Seriously.
since melo's return 2-6. =/ I know D'antoni is going to get all the blame, and yes he deserves a lot. But the best the Knicks have played these last two years were 1. Before they traded for Melo and 2. When Melo was injured. It has to obvious to more people than just me right?
His game is just so gimp. His entire basketball IQ and mindset is abhorrent, and the opposite of what this team needs.
I actually get nauseated watching him, at least twice a game, while thinking about the many times he's yapped his trap or strutted around cat walks looking like Steve Urkel who got a makeover by one of the gay Europeans who fill up downtown on the weekends.
Melo makes me cringe, too. After that Celtic game, watching him pal around, hugging and laughing with the Celtics.
I'm so tired of these crappy stars. I'd take 5 Tyson Chandlers, F these sorry ass offensive players (Stat/Melo) who play NO defense but want the ball in their hands everytime up the court. They kill us on both sides of the court and I'd be happy if they were both gone. They can take D'Antoni with em.
This is ****ing pathetic bro this **** messes up my day and weekend.. I dont even want to watch TV anymore
