    You have to give it to the Rockets for winning their two NBA finals games against the Knicks this season. Since they won't be making the playoffs this season they needed to get excited about something.

    , In our loses Felton has been horrible takes way to many shots and misses most if them .

    Woodson leaving Felton in the game when he is chucking gives me negative flashbacks of Pat Riley not benching John Starks in game 7 of the finals.

    As I said on page three of this thread, I'm more thinking about Melo getting better. We will need him to beat the Nets. We won't see Houston in the playoffs or the Finals.

    When Shump comes back he'll be the one guarding the other teams best perimeter player so I don't think that'll be too big of an issue come playoff time.

    Now all these posts are blaming the loss on not having our 3 best players. We just beat the lakers and the heat without those same 3. And the rockets suck, they lost to the raptors. I mean if that makes you feel better about the loss then cool. I'm not too thrilled and I'm glad i missed it tonite i would have snapped at Felton shooting us out another game as is being suggested.

    Also doesn't it bother anyone that melo doesn't play through injuries like other stars? He seems to sit out our biggest games and as great as he has been and i love every minute but he isn't exempt from critique. Like man up and play

    Tonight .. the Knicks looked like to much going to Melo, and to much going to the peremeter for shots .. thats a picture of the Melo's Nuggets daze for 8 seasons, the team depended on Melo's 30 points for 82 games.

    I believe Linsanity got a grudge against the Knicks organization ..
    Lin is 2-0 on us

    Lin only plays well against the Knicks and when Harden is not in the lineup. He is a streaky player at best and far from the superstar player that he was last season.

    I am so glad I wasn't able to see this train-wreck of a game.

    From what I have seen in the box score, there are 2 positive things:

    1- Tyson outrebounded a very good rebounder (Asik).

    2- Copeland scored an efficient 29 points, wonderful from a rookie.


    Again, I am glad I didn't see the game!!

    I was at the game tonight and was a bit disappointed that many Knicks fans were booing Lin. Show some appreciation for last season.

    Copeland looked very tough.

    We didn't move the ball that well tonight which is why we lost. We also just didn't hit the 3's at a high rate.

    Let's hope we get our mojo back soon!

    Basketball is a strange sport sometimes....we blow out the Heat twice and get blown out by the Rockets twice!

    We beat The Spurs and lose to The Mavericks.....there are gonna be games like this and teams that some how beat other teams consistently that on paper should not (remember how we could not seem to beat the Cavs in 2010!) Or remember how Isiah led Knick teams played The Finals bound Cavs team really well!

    Kinda happy the home win streak is over

    Look this is not an excuse but if Melo is truly the MVP of The League then we ought to lose games when he is not here....that said we should never ever fall behind at home by 23 pts (lost count if it got any hire than that) but this game has a different feel if Melo plays.

    Actually, that's not strange at all.
    It's called match-ups.

    The rockets penentrate well, and they have some good shooters. Their guards are quick and crafty.

    The heat backcourt is bad (Chalmers is an average PG, Wade is in the decline)

    Whilst houston has Harden who is a very dangerous SG, and Lin who we know is a good penetrator.

    So the way i see it, houston played on our weakness (defensively, our backcourt has an old slow defender in Kidd, yes he is a good defender, but he faces problems defending fast guards. And we have felton, who gets beaten by super fast guards in the defensive end)

    What makes up for that previously mentioned weakness is our star, carmelo anthony.

    Yes, we need shump back in order to beat a team like houston. With him, our backcourt is better defensively!
