The energy last night was pretty awesome, regardless of the outcome.
Melo would not have made much of a difference in this game ..
Melo cant beat a run run uptempo team as a SF or PF (proof is in the pudding in Melo's Denver daze vs Suns/Spurs/Jazz/Lakers/and Durant) ..
The young Rockets started running the ball off of every defensive-rebound and inbound-pass (like Euro-ball) to get on offense before Tyson Chandler could push his way through Asik to get back on defense .. do u really think Melo wouldve made a difference getting back on defense .. Melo didnt make a difference in our first lost to the Rockets other than give the Rockets SF-Chandler Parson an ALL-Star scoring game.
Copeland shouldve been given the greenlight to attack the rim in the first-quarter not the 4th quarter, Felton shouldve told JR, Brewer, Kurt, Copeland, and White to play the revolving door cutting to the basket before Tyson cut and right behind Tyson cutting to the basket while looking for the alley-oop pass, this wouldve kept the Rockets players moving on offense plus put the Rockets in early foul trouble defending the paint in the first half of the game.
All the Rockets losses have their bigmen in foul-trouble .. that is their biggest weakness in the scouting-report, plus their bench bigman Patterson was out with injury.
This Knicks LOST goes to Woody & Felton incompetence .... not Melo being injured for the game...
I'm going to disagree with ya my fellow Knicks fan. I am currently rewatching the game and in the third quarter Copeland was HOT. And neither Kidd nor Felton would get him the ball...... What the friggin crap!!!!!! Only answer I have for that is that Copeland is a rookie. You can even hear Walt saying, "Why aren't they give the man with the hot hand the ball".
Now if that was Melo and he was hot, (and he usually is at that point) you're going to tell me he isn't going to get the ball???? Last night's game was lost right there.
We got some of the best defensive-rebound passers on our team to start a fastbreak in Tyson/Camby/Kurt/Rasheed/and Amare .. is Felton, JR, and Melo going to run or walk the ball up court so our oponents could setup on defense.
There is alot to worry about when Camby, Amare, and Shump get on the seen...
Some Knicks-Fans believe Melo is a candidate for MVP .. the top-3 candidate for MVP will be at the end of midseason.
The Knicks halfcourt-setting style has been set by Jason Kidd .. Lastnite Kidd let Felton run the point vs Jeremy Lin .. Copeland & Brewer locked down Parson from having another high scoring game, Melo's defensive effort cant do that .. learn to accept Melo as just a high-scorer and the guy u give the final shot to, but remember Melo is a high scorer in a half-court offensive setting .. which Amare would be a high scorer with a running uptempo team with Harden & Lin in the baskcourt scoring before oponents could setup on defense.

reason that we lost is 1
Felton gave proof that still jeremy is better
he is faster than felton fetlon is not only slow but is simply wasting time for nonsense dribbling when Lin simply starting fastbreak and even with and 1.
Now i hope Woodston will think about Copeland as S5
Knicks were down just 5 in 3rd and then 5-23.
but i dont get it rockets loose to raptors and that was just 3 win as away for rockets.
they will be in 7-8 seed and then will be war against OKC and something can smell as upset of Harden who knows
last thing there will be no famous record 22-5
now Nyets Bulls and Lakers.
With this type of playing without MELo we are 0-3
Hey bigapple, i dont know what you are smoking, but that stuff is good
