Glad for the win no doubt but i hope we go to our stars late in games.
    Do we have a top 3 clutch performer on our club? Not this season, we don't.

    Having said that, I like how late in the fourth quarter, Woody had Melo running the point. I don't necessarily want Melo to take the last shot tonight. He is having his worst shooting season, a good 5 points below his average.

    If today's game came down to the last shot, the ball should be in Lin's hand and station Novak or JR on the wing for the open 3.

    The only thing you guys should care about is the Knicks winning. We've won 3 in a row guys, and we're almost back to .500. Give the guys above a break for a while, they've been playing their hearts out.

    I thought this was a forum for Knick lovers and enthusiasts, not haters??


    STOP HATIN'

    Man....later for those guys....Melo, Lin, Woodson, and the rest of the team are
    WINNING!!!

    If it comes down to the last shot I hope we get the ball to Chandler. After all he has the highest shooting% in history going on this season.

    Nobody treated Lin like M.J. but at the same time nobody treated Lin like crap as if he didn't belong. You and Mayweather should get together. Or are you Mayweather in disguise....

    Just curious, why can't you be happy when Knicks finally had a ray of hope even if it is overhyped?

    Highest dunk%*

    If we get Chandler open underneath sure but the reason Chandler is shooting like 70% for the season is because about 69% of his shots are open dunks

    This is a team loaded with talent. With proper coaching, I don't see why Knicks can't be in the Eastern Conference Final. We do need to move up to 6th seed to get past the first round though.

    Happy St Paddy's Day. Let the drinking begin.

    Chandler should be buying his PGs dinner every night.

    i do see ur point in that he`s not as great as the media make him out to be .....BUT average at best???? for essentially a rookie?? does he need to improve??? no doubt !!! but for what we all have witness ??? average??? enjoy him while we can .....for we may never see a story like this again

    I'm very happy ...I still don't believe the hype tho...but that and hating is not the same thing..I guess when you're on the bandwagon you can't see that. It's the same in Denver with Tebow. His fans don't get it either.

    Agree and disagree. Lin has shown signs of clutch, and it doesn't just come down to one shot usually, but the entire 4th quarter (even though he's hit some big shots this year).

    I didn't mind Melo running the point today, but I don't necessarily like it if the game was tied, or we was down by 2. Melo is solid in the post, so having him bring the ball up just wastes time off the shot clock, and doesn't allow him to quickly get in position, or look for a mis match.

    Overall, I feel we have 3 solid players that can take over in the 4th - stat, melo, and yes - Lin. Lin is a threat now, and his consistency overall is improving.

    In order of clutchiness:

    Melo - Post up and iso
    Lin - Off the pick and roll
    Stat - Off the pick and roll

    We got a lot of choices, i'm just glad we got them.

    The hype is extreme, painting him as an all star, he ain't there yet and won't be for at least another year or two.

    To say he's just an average PG is not really accurate either, he's above average, especially for essentially a rook.

    If we didn't have Lin we would be screwed right now. That's not hype that's fact.

    You don't sound happy, just saying. Before Linsanity, everything about the Knicks was depressing. This was a team going nowhere fast and with no light at the end of the tunnel.

    I enjoyed Linsanity but mostly I enjoyed Lin's youthful exuberance. The 10-day long Linsanity was a bravura performance that I've never experienced as a Knicks fan dating back to Willis Reed days. Just be glad you were there.
