Hot damn .. we redeem our homecourt with a pure butt-whiippin over Brooklyn .. Barkley is sitting in the back of the class with a Dunce-cap LOL
Its to damn bad the Brooklyn Nets had to be the next suspect of redemption on our Home-court .. who's next
Big Props go out to Melo's return .. giving Tyson Chandler fresh legs to dominate over all 4 of the Nets bigmen on bothsides of the court .. plus JR.Smith step-up to perform like the 6th man of the year as a pass-first guard keeping the ball movement flowing for easy open shots for teammates .. while Melo movement/presence drawed the Nets defense toward his unstoppable scoring.
Props goes to team-ball movement, team-defense, and only 7 turnovers in the game.
Novak being out gave rookie Copeland playingtime to box-out, set screens, and being the first one back on DEFENSE in the 2nd half.
Great Game at MSG...
Wake-up the dead Knicks-Fans .. we won 20 games already this season .. we are ending the year on the road with 3 games in 4 nights which will give us 30 games played to end the 2012 year.
25th Christmas Day in LA Lakers 3 pm.
26th in Phoenix Suns at 9 pm.
28th in Sacremento Kings at 10 pm.
On New Years day we are at MSG vs Portland Trailblazers at 7:30 pm.
Carmelo Anthony is still one of the top 10 superstars in the regular-season games .. Melo aint shaaat in the Postseason.
Thats when we need a Healthy Camby, Rasheed, Amare, and Kidd to get us to the ECF.
Postseason series are a TEAM game .. Individual high scoring superstars like MJ, Shaq, Kobe, and Lebron found that out. Durant and CP3 is working on "Team Chemestry" this season for the postseason games.
The Knicks coach Woody & Kidd are working with injuries and dislikes on this roster, but WTH Woody will win the Atlantic Division Title in 2012-13 season.
Melo is having one of his best seasons this year doing it all "Moving the ball, rebounding, diving for loose balls, playing defense, and leading us to victories when we need buckets down the stretch.
Seems like your saying melo is cancer to the knicks in the playoffs, which is a bit naive IMO considering we had no real pg, depleted roster and key guys injured (including AMARE) during the past 2 playoffs appearances, your judging melo off past history. This is a new Knicks team & and a New Matured Melo this season... we have 3 Vet PG's Melo does not have to force anything, which he really hasn't so far this year.
Felton is the one im worried about come playoff time, if he becomes trigger happy shooting the ball were going to be in deep $hit. We need him to get others involved and take the smart shots.
Felton should be benched he is now playing nightmare with these non sens jump shots. Only what he is doin best are alley opps to chandler but such passes are 1-5 per game
u are absolutely right about Felton, his regular season performance hasnt change since being a Bobcats, so I expect Woody to bring Felton off the bench when the postseason games arrive.
PG-Jason Kidd is the MAN .. to depend on to replace Felton as starter/finisher to get our two $100M knuckle-head gellin in a rotation in the postseason games.
Melo 10 seasons in the NBA postseason games has not impressed anyone with his playoff performance .. 10 years of optimistic-fans were let down everytime at the outcome of high scoring Melo in a series, except the season when coach Karl gave the team to Chauncey Billups to lead.
Mr. Band-Aid wrap-hand Amare won the Knicks first postseason game in a decade, with teammate Melo trying to outshine Amare by scoring 41 points (Melo average close to 30 shot attempts per in the 5 game series), not something to boast about or show a video of one game out of five games.
Isiah = David Lee & Will Chandler
Walsh = Amare & Felton
Dolan = Melo & Tyson Chandler
