watched a different team tonight.
sux ass for woodson.
LOL at people who don't have a clue what it takes to win a basketball game. We played unwatchable isoball that kept most of our team out of the game. How dare you to talk about "missed opportunities" if Chandler, Novak and Fields took 10 shots combined? I agree Baron and Smith were chucking, but where was Woody then? What kind of basketball it is to give the green light to a couple of chuckers and exclude high percentage shooters? I'm not blaming Carmelo per se, I realize he did what he was asked to. I'm blaming the coach of not using our strengths.
Fields doesn't take alot of shots, so I have no idea why you mentioned him.
Novak doesn't do what other three point bombers do, standing around in one spot waiting for the ball, usually won't get many attempts.
When he moved he got two shots.
Bottom line, Melo and Shumpert showed up to play, the rest didn't.
lack of good movement without the ball, poor passing allowed this game to deteriorate into a game of one on whatever basketball. And it wasn't all Melo's fault.
It was Chandler's worst game in 2 years, Chandler made 3 to 4 consistent mistakes each quarter playing like he was still a Bobcat....there is no excuse for Tyson Chandler poor lazy performance when Horford was DNP.
Woody knew we only needed "Lin-Sanity" speed to beat "his" ole Hawks starters by 10 or more points....or at least have Toney Douglas perform at an uptempo-transition for 20 minutes of running the ball with Shump/Fields/Novak/Jorts (a lineup we shouldve been developing).
Ole-Baron Davis did well playing starter minutes the previous 2 games....3 games was really pushing it big-time with Davis old uncondition body.
Davis dont have that kind of gas in his tank any more....Davis is a decent 21 minute halfcourt offensive PG, u use for 7 minute runs as a starter or backup (only 21 minutes per game).
Will be continue in the Knicks vs Cavs Game Thread
Agreed. Now can we finally put to rest the BD needs to be the PG and Lin needs to sit, watch and learn. Poor Baron's body just can't do it anymore
Baron is too old. He can't handle the minutes. Come back soon, Lin, from your Linjury.
Bibby is too old. WTF did he do to warrant the minutes Woody is giving him?
JR is too iso-happy. Woody has to remind him there are four other teammates on the floor.
Team needs to stop partying on off-days, especially on Thursday nights. Haven't they learned their lesson in Toronto?
I think everybody had an off night, from tyson and baron to coach woodson. melo and shump were the exception, and were the only reason this wasnt a complete blowout.
it happens. lets move on, beat the cavs and get back to winning mode. in that sense, the cavs game is great for us. just imagine us playing the heat / chicago / celtics (in their current form). it could have been a lot worse.
