Knicks just played terrible ball can't even blame the refs, no flow on offense terrible D. Melo slowed down so much in the 2nd half, Amare was a no show, all the injuries, and this team is not showing any real fight.
I was delusional I thought we can steal a game or two... even without the calls Miami are destroying us.
Miami plays great defense.You can't play this kind of ball and expect to win.
The Heat just execute better than us. I'm not afraid to admit that. We are not on their level yet. They make crisp passes and understand how to exploit the defense.
We are the Kings of futility
One positive - Baron Davis looked pretty good
Amare was useless, not rebounding the ball, not closing out on D. He NEEDS to come off the bench or something at this point. We all know Melo/STAT combo hasn't worked ALL YEAR and both have played better in the past without each other. I'd prefer to see Jeffries out there over STAT at this point at least HE TRIES.
BDiddy/JR/Melo/Novak/Chandler should be the lineup for key stretches
Not having Shumpert/Lin kills us
we need athleticism in the back court to handle Miami's ball pressure, we're still an above average team, who cant consistently defend and get great shots
we need some athleticism and some motivation
its stressful, when you watch every game since Dec 25th and see some of the same characteristics, it takes a toll emotionally because I support this team but it seems they're just not into it
Who the **** is amare kidding. His pre game comments was as intense as he got tonight...wow what a pitiful team to watch right now. two years in a row 7th seed 4-0 sweep out.
