this is just sad....
No 3's by Lin - Carmelo 1/3 in the final 2 minutes.
You not see Lin defer to Melo about as pure as one could defer just before?
They get their opps man.
If STAT held on to the ball better...and if he didn't randomly float around the perimeter all the sudden during a possession....he would get even more looks.
Melo is getting shots, too -- 7/19 for field tonight. If he actually starts making his ****, you don't think he would get even more looks too?
edit -- we'd have more overall possessions too if we sustained an up-tempo pace that would enable talents like Melo and Amare to get dishes from Lin and others.
Damn, it was a good game, just couldn't pull it out.
man i came to this forum to get away from melo/stat fanboys
turns out this is the hotspot for em
LMFAO, Knicks with the full court press but Gibson is already in the other side of the court.
HAHAHAH and you guys want Phil Jackson. This guy Dantoni is a genuis, his execution and game plan in the last two mintues is hall of fame worthy. Hopefully he gets a 10 year extention. I heard he's so good that when the nets move to Brooklyn, he will coach the knicks and the nets. He's so dedicated to both teams that he will risk getting his Italian suit dirty and take the subway into brooklyn.
80+ rebounds for Bulls vs 35+ for Knicks.
Melo and Amare supporters need to take a good look at themselves in the mirror.
That should be it for C'ANToni.
Why is everyone mad we're giving the ball to Melo in crunch time?
That's the one time you want him to HAVE the ball. Are quite a few of those shots ridiculous? Sure, but he's made them time and time again. He's a clutch player. He's shown it before, but it does need a better set up. How you could botch the 3, and then the lay up? Come on.
We get outrebounded by the best rebounding team in the league, big shock.
Nice offensive game from Stoudemire, but he had two rebounds for the longest time.
Where is Novak in crunch time?
