    Default Two topics: Should Novak add this?/Douglas getting Lin's mins. when he returns?

    Instead of making two new threads I decided to make one thread for both topics today.

    1. Should Novak add the Kyle Korver/Ray Allen running around game? Can he? Do you want to keep how he's used?

    2. Not the best time to ask this, but I think Douglas wasn't used enough today and he didn't play bad, so let's base this off the Orlando game and his play from the previous two seasons. If he plays the way he did in Orlando consistently, should he get Lin's minutes even when Lin returns? If so, is it because of his play or you rather rest Lin for next season?

    1- that would be nice but, i think he is a little to slow for that. i like him spotting up and shooting 3's & faking the shot and coming off the dribble for the easy 2 points for now, no need for him to come up out his comfort zone right now but if he is capable of running around like Ray and Korver then maybe he can work on it in the off-season.. hopefully we can resign him.

    2- if Lin can make it for the playoffs assuming we are in the playoffs i rather him come off the bench for Baron with limited amount of playing time. We should not be taking any major risks with Lin, he can come in with the second unit and take it easy. Same goes for Stat him and Lin can come off the bench and add fire power to our second unit. Dougie should be used as an emergency backup PG only and receive garbage time mins

    1st unit

    Baron
    Fields
    Shump
    Melo
    Chandler

    2nd unit

    Lin
    Jr
    Novak
    Jeff
    Stat

    ^^^ i like it

    1.Novak is not fast enough nor is he conditioned enough to do that more than 3 times in a row.

    2.TD is soft, never penetrates and is only good for spoting up and hitting every 5th floater he throws up.

    I don't think Novak is really fast enough for that, but he's not really used in that way anyway. He's used to spread the floor and punish a team when they double Melo, so all he has to do is stand there.

    Melo and Novak both benefit from that and it works well the way it is.

    i dont really care much about toney's minutes

    but novak HAS to move his ass

    zero points today? all of the attempted shots are from downtown? come on man.. get some sweat for god's sake

    novak would help his game & his team much more when he moves around.. long jumpers wouldnt hurt either

    i know he is no dirk, but he could be a semi-dirk.. which is enough

    Running, novak.. give it a try

    Baron isn't what he was. Lin is more of a floor general than any other player on the Knicks at the 1 position. He also penetrates regularly, which watching us play, is not where it should be for us to be effective offensively.

    Lin should start and get his 33-36 a night imo. We've got such good defenders to make up for Lin's occasional lapses and his basketball IQ is just too invaluable.
