i am quite proud of the boys tonight. Yes, its a loss, which is unacceptable as i hate losing, but to come within 8 points against a team with arguably 2 of the best players in the NBA, and to do it without 2 of our own best players is a decent effort IMO. I think we have come along way and we are definitely heading in the right direction.
And Mello is absolutely beasting it up in a big way and is arguably the best player in the NBA at the moment...
Lets hope we can roll boston in a few days time and get back on track...
the best player on the court today, and in the last couple of weeks.
But, I still feel that the ball should have went to other players,
such as Novak near the end of the game. Just my opinion.
*I know I asked if I was wrong! And, I still appreciate your
"Winner of the coveted "Chink in the Armor" award!"
Your options are limited. Melo, Davis ( who had no legs and shot an airball and hit the side of the backboard ), Shump ( who was not shooting all game ), Tyson who does not shoot....Novak not open and JR who will always shoot.
we missed Stat ( the stat of late ) in this game.....
There's nothing to think about.
Melo was the best player on the court.
Only problem...he was the only player to show for the whole game on his team.
Inexcusable that only 1 starter had double digit points, and all of the starters combined had just over 20 boards.
The team basically had one good quarter, trailed the majority of the game, got out-rebounded by double figures to an awful rebounding team.
Totally disgusting, terrible display for a home game, when every game is important now.
Another Hugh effort again today. 42pts. That's awesome. U would think with him getting that many points that the Knicks would of scored a total of 110+. But when all the rest of the starters and the whole bench can only muster 1 more total point over what Melo scored all by himself then you have major problems.
Yes we miss Lin and amare. When Melo was out Lin helped carry the team. Now Melo is returning the favor. He just needs a little help,from his friends
Knicks played better then Miami. Miami just had there run at the right time.
A "good loss" dont mean ****.
We lost to the Celtics by a game winning shot from Ray Allen and then the next night lost even with Melo's 42. I bet everybody thought those were good losses, only to get swept.
Without a healthy STAT and a nonretarded Baron Davis, Melo and the Knicks are nothing.
Haha that was a classy game thread CA7!
Huge props bro!
The right amount of ammunition for a HEAT-hater like me!
Unfortunately we lost the game, but Melo owned these bitches!
If we had a second scorer and a decent rebounder (in other words a healthy and hungry Amar'e) we'd have won that game. NO question.
Lebron can't guard Melo and that was just a regular season game....they better carry a box of Pampers over here when we meet them in the Playoffs, cause Lebron will **** his pants when Melo goes off in crunchtime and he has to match him shot for shot.
Shumpert did a very good job on Wade. He absolutely owned him twice. Shump will be the best backcourt defender in the league for the next 5-8 years.
A shame about all those cheap calls they got, but that has always been the case.
**** the Miami Heat!!!
Maybe not this season, but look out next season and beyond.
However, If we get a good amount of luck , and get on a roll and get Lin and stat back, we could seriously do some damage come playoff time this year if all players are on the same page
After watching the game against the Heat, i truly believe we can beat any team in the NBA on any given day if we play to our potential and have a full playing list. i believe we have the talent to get the job done.
