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.
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.
Just curious, why can't you be happy when Knicks finally had a ray of hope even if it is overhyped?
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.
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 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.
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.
next season lin will be on his first allstar game.
he going to topple yao ming's votes.
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.
