    Game Thread GAME THREAD: Knicks Vs. Suns Sunday December 2nd 2012: Knicks look to dominate



    Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. Today we have a tilt between your NEW YORK KNICKS and the dwindling Pheonix suns.

    I Have dropped the ball on this game thread. So in order to get this started I am going to drop the thread here quickly and follow up with some pre-game knowledge on the move as I am about to head to a restaurant to watch this game with my own Basketball team.





    And here we go!!!





    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] have lost two of three to the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] since Amare Stoudemire joined the team, but figure to be in good position to win the next matchup even without him.

    The Knicks can improve to 7-0 at home Sunday when they try to hand the Suns a third straight loss.
    Stoudemire remains out due to his persistent knee problems so he won't be able to help New York (11-4) avoid a third straight loss to Phoenix (7-10).



    The Knicks may not need him because they are off to their best start at Madison Square Garden since winning their first nine games there in 1992-93. That team matched a franchise record with 60 victories.
    New York improved to 17-1 at home in the regular season under coach Mike Woodson with Friday's 108-87 rout of Washington.

    "The Garden is known when it's rocking as one of the toughest places to play so we want to bring that back," said [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who had 20 points in a season-low 27 minutes. "For us to just keep that going and protect that home court is big."
    The Knicks have won two of three without [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who is expected to miss his fourth straight game Sunday due to lower back spasms.



    Kidd's absence hasn't had too big an impact since newcomer [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has provided quality minutes backing up [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Prigioni has totaled 19 points and 12 assists in consecutive victories.

    "For Pablo to step up as he's been doing at that PG position has been spectacular for us," Anthony said.
    While Prigioni is enjoying his first NBA season on a winning team, his teammate from Argentina's national squad -- [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- can't say the same about his first season with the Suns. Scola struggled to make 4 of 13 shots for eight points in Friday's 101-97 loss to a Toronto team that had lost six straight. The former Houston big man's scoring average of 12.7 is his lowest in four seasons, and he voiced his frustration after playing the Raptors.



    "We need to change the dynamic, we need to change our attitude, we need to change our minds," Scola said. "We're in the kind of dynamic where everything goes wrong. We just can't get it going.
    "We need to start thinking like a winning team. We need to start believing in ourselves and winning games."
    Fellow newcomer [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is averaging team highs of 15.6 points and 6.6 assists with big shoes to fill in replacing [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at point guard. Dragic has totaled 23 points and six assists in two straight losses to the lowly Raptors and Detroit.
    The Suns, 2-7 on the road, are allowing a league-worst 102.5 points per game.
    Friday's win for the Knicks closed out their strong November. Eight of New York's first 12 games this month are at home.
    "That's a big month for us. Coming into the season, my goal and our goal was to at least get 10 wins for this month," Anthony said. "Any time you can get 10 wins in a month, especially the first month, that's always good."

    This should be an easy win for our Knicks.

    But if the Suns somehow get their run and gun game going, watch out. That's how the rockets beat us bad, the transition game, and I'm hoping for an improved level of focus when defending a run and gun team, assuming that Phoenix still plays a fast paced offense.

    Knicks just finished off one of their best Novembers ever. It's time to get December off to a good start. Usual routine against a subpar team like the Suns, exploit the matchups, play smart, keep the turnovers down, and don't let the Suns get into transition without getting back.

    Let's go Knicks with the Sunday matinee!

    Great start in the first. I love Ronnie Brewer. The dude deserves a nickname.

    Awesome end to end brilliance for the TC oop finish. That was magic. Could it be number 1 in the top 10 plays, I wonder?
