    THANKS CRAZY-mon!

    WOW! Knicks are on fire. What a game that was last night. Haven't enjoyed a game like that, vs a team like that, in a LONG TIME. Without Amar'e & Lin, who expected that blowout?

    When I was looking at the final 23 games, I split the remaining part of the schedule into 3 acts: 7-11-5. The first act was a stretch of 7 "winnable" games, & then that was followed by a tough 11 game gauntlet, before finally concluding with an "easy" 5 game run to end the season. I set par as 5-2, then 6-5, then 4-1. Thought 15-8 was within reason, if I was setting the bar of expectation.

    Now, while I felt par would get the Knicks into the playoffs (as long as they beat MIL twice)... I was sure that NY would need to do more if they were going to catch BOS or PHI.

    Well, the Knicks went 6-1 in the first act! Not perfect but better than par. They've also started the brutal 11 game stretch w/ an impressive, confidence-building victory last night.

    Here's NYK's remaining 15 games:

    @ATL, CLE, @INDY, @ORL, CHI, @CHI, @MIL, WAS, MIA, BOS, @NJ, @CLE, @ATL, LAC, @CHA.

    Sure, Knicks have CHI (twice), MIA & BOS. At least 3 of those 4 games are home at MSG. Still, 2-2 would be great. 1-3 probably what we shoud expect there though.

    Knicks play at ATL (twice), at ORL, at MIL & at INDY. 5 semi-tough games. 3-2 is par, although if we go 1-3 against the best of what's left, we better go 4-1. The 2 CLE games, NJ, WAS, LAC, CHA should be 6 gimme wins. CLE plays us tough though, so I'll set par at 5-1.

    9-6 is par. This will ensure we get into the playoffs. But this wont get us the 4-6 seed. I post this: If we breeze through our easy 6 games, go 4-1 in the semi-tough & draw a split in those 4 tough battles... If we manage to finish season on a 12-3 run... WE WILL CATCH BOS & PHI and finish with the 4th seed! Let's do it.

    Amar'e out might be a blessing. Woodson has been fantastic. We need Jeffries back soon to fill in for STAT. Get Davis into better game shape as well. Knicks are deep, we can survive. Get healthy is the key though. So make sure Chandler, Melo, Amar'e, Lin, Davis and the rest ae ready to go come May.

    Well, here we are... 2 games left. We did it! Yippee.

    Knicks are 34-30. I predicted 35-31. Pretty dead on. I think we'll win the final 2 games, so I expect us to finish 36-30. Sure, that is slightly better than par (for what I predicted over the final 23 games)... but it still wasn't good enough to escape the 7-8 seed.

    I felt that 36-30 to 33-33 was good enough to get us in the playoffs, but not enough to escape the doomed 7-8 seeds.

    It sucks, b/c it turns out that 37-29 would be good enough to get us the 6th seed.

    JUST ONE MORE WIN during the course of 66 games and the Knicks would be facing off w/ the Pacers in the first round. ONE MORE FREAKING WIN!

    Playing MIA in the second round isn't much better than playing them in the first round, in the grand scheme of things... BUT, with all things considered, we could at least feel the season was successful if we won a playoff series & forced a 6-7 game in round 2.

    We could look at the Woodson era as a hit in that case.

    We definitely held on to Dantoni too long. If we fire him 2 weeks earlier, Knicks are sitting in the 6th spot right now. We win a playoff round (for the first time in over a decade), and we get to square of with the Heat for the right to go to the Eastern Conf. finals.

    Sucks.

    We were 1 win from that.

    Now, we get to see us bow out again in the first round, adn maybe that means we go w/ Phil Jax over Woody. Who knows.

    Maybe we luck out. Maybe CHA & MEM beat ORL, and we win out, and we still get the #6th seed.

    I'd rather face Miami in first round. Pacers we would be expected to beat. That would make the series tougher and put added pressure on us IMO. On the other hand NO ONE would expect us to beat Miami. They are the chosen ones. All the pressure would be on them. They are the ones that said they would win not 5, not 6, not 7 titles. Lol. Riley has a close eye on them and if they fail this time their coach will lose his job and bosh is prob gone as well as othe role players.
    I think it's a better matchup then the bulls as well. All they are hearing is weather the Knicks should tank to get them in first round. They would come out trying to destroy us and have a chip on their shoulder with something to prove.

    So.. I say we go and put the screws to the Heat.....
