    Nyk Logo EC 1st Round Match Ups: Point Guard


    @ THE

    The point guard position, IMO, is where both teams have cause for concern. In a sense of point guard purity, Davis is the stand out. He's had an illustrious career, and in the Knicks recent win in Atlanta, showed that he's still a player that can play big when the call is sounded.




    HEAD 2 HEAD





    Though Davis has shown flashes of brilliance throughout the season, Bibby, as unforeseeable as it was, showed toward the end of the season in Davis' absence that he is still capable of running the point appropriately and within his role. The difference, as far as I see it, is that Davis' penetration and creativity coupled with a size and strength advantage over Bibby make him the better option for the Knicks, though Bibby should still see minutes as Woodson mentioned prior to our playoff seeding's finalization.

    VERSUS





    Out With The New, In With The Old


    Miami have youth on their side. The Knicks: experience. An important thing to consider is that Bibby was a member of the heat for an entire season, and though Miami have reportedly restructured their offense, Bibby's insights will be invaluable.


    Verdict: ****ed if I know!? All i can say is this: Baron Davis can not slack off defensively against Chalmers. He can hit from outside and has the chemistry with Wade and James to be effective as a perimeter player. Each side have their advantages, and their play at the PG could, or could very well not, be important.

    Norris Cole is a question mark, but has had some standout performances throughout the regular season.

    I wish one of Davis and Bibby could replicate their career stats (which look pretty dang good).

    Unfortunately that won't happen.

    Bibby seems to be the safe option, less turnover prone than Davis, but also less accurate from 3-point land Davis on the other hand is a better scorer than Bibby, but also less intelligent imo and his decision making can be frustrating to watch at times.

    Either way, PG doesn't look good for us.

    Chalmers is a good defender and his PER looks good compared to our guys.

    Maybe a J.R. Smith/Shumpert backcourt is the answer?

    J.R. has played quite a bit of PG for us in the last couple of games and it worked well I think.

    Real Talk....
    I am not to proud of our PG situation, Davis & Bibby NBA career equal NO-DEFENSE....C- average.
    Davis has always been a halfcourt-offensive PG who over dribbles.
    Bibby has always been a pass-first PG who feared to penetrate.
    I am hoping Davis & Bibby been holding all their energy & veteran experience for a playoff series.

    The Miami Heat's plan is easy to figure out....the first half of each game Charmer's is the floor-leader, the 2nd half of the game if the Heat dont have a double-diget lead "Lebron & Wade" become the floor leaders.

    I think B Diddy will step up big this series. I hope Bibby can get hot and find his shot. But yeah if Baron can rock we got it. I see both these dudes tiring out though..
