KNICKS GONNA MAKE IT
The Starting 五
It's believed that he was a Nazi experiment gone horribly wrong.
Has the shooting rhythm of a one legged man ****ing a lawn mower.
Hot like a Mexican's lunch.
Is terrified of beavers
The Man Handler
It's believed that if you lick his chest, the taste is identical to wasabi. Cool.

The Bucks move the ball well. Whether or not Ellis will somehow detract from that as their new piece we will see. They tend to be out rebounded, particularly in the back-court, but otherwise they're reasonably on par with their opponents statistically.
The Bucks most effective field goal % comes during the first 10 seconds of the shot clock. They play good transition basketball, and, as I've said move the ball well.
Fact!The Bucks reached 30 assists for the sixth time in seven games and the seventh time in 10 games. They lost for the first time when reaching that mark. ... The Bucks scored at least 104 points for the ninth time in 10 games. They fell to 18-5 in games where they score at least 100.
Key to Victory.
● Defense - naturally. When we last lost to the Bucks at home our defense was just woeful. The Bucks move that ball, and any players not paying attention to their man will get burned. STAT could very well be made to look silly by Gooden on numerous occasions.
● We need the bench to come out gunning. Our propensity to let leads balloon rather than be cut down will be under surveillance as always, and we need the bench to score and exert energy from the get go.

Who To WatchAmar'e Stoudemire
With the emerging Ilyasova and Gooden's potential to get hot and stay hot, STAT will have to be on his toes in this one defensively.
Assignments - We owe Jennings one, and Ilyasova needs to be kept quiet.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and power forward Amare Stoudemire are questionable for Monday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Both players started experiencing pain in the third quarter during Saturday's 101-79 win over the Detroit Pistons. Lin was dealing with a sore right knee, while Stoudemire was suffering from stiffness in his back.
Coach Mike Woodson said he won't know if Lin and Stoudemire are playing Monday until they both arrive at Madison Square Garden later in the afternoon. Lin participated in shooting drills and 5-on-0 halfcourt sets during Monday morning's shootaround, but Stoudemire wasn't at the Knicks' training facility. He stayed back at his New York City apartment to receive treatment.
While Woodson didn't provide a Plan B starting five, during shootaround he used Iman Shumpert at shooting guard, moved Landry Fields to the three and made Carmelo Anthony the power forward. Shumpert on the Bucks' lightning-quick shooting guard Monta Ellis, who was recently acquired in a trade with Golden State, could be a key defensive matchup in the game. But Woodson knows no lineup will be complete without Stoudemire.
"Amare's a big part of what we do. He's a big piece of our puzzle," he said. "I'd rather have him in uniform than sitting over there in suits watching the game with me. But his health is more important as we move down the road, so we've just got to gauge it, take it a day at a time and just see what happens."

Also I just heard that Amare will undergo an MRI in the coming days on his back...Feckkkkkkkkk
Gotta do what is in the best interest of our future and playoffs. Amare should sit tonight, rest his back, get treatment and wait on MRI results. Lin will probably play but I don't think he will crack 20 minutes.
Gotta pray that STAT get's right because as woody says he is a BIG piece of the puzzle for this team.
