**** me that was ****ed up......so close....so far.
From best defense team to D-League level.
Again another no show first half ensured a loss to an inferior team.
Woody needs explain to these part timers a simple reality 17-2 when we concede under 100, 4-8 when we concede 100+.
Bottom line shock, horror...D MATTERS!!!!!!
I actually expected us to lose this one, with Stat coming back trying to get his Flow back.
I just wish we had the same defensive intensity in the 1st half that we had in the second half
Oh well at least the eastern conference is CRAP, no worries
2 heartbreaking games in a row. Fuuuuuck. And we get the Spurs next..
Amare played too much and Camby not enough. They played their best ball with the Chandler and Camby combo, no idea why Woodson didn't do it more.
Guess we're missing Ray as our other PG's put up what, 2 pts tonight...Our Bench only put up about 10 pts too...and Novack, 20 minutes and zero points
What's heartbreaking about these losses is that they were to two teams that the Knicks would have blown out earlier in the season.
How on earth does a team go from lookinig elite to then consistently starting each game with zero energy or effort?
I could give a few possible answers to this...
1. Their age is catching up to them
2. Teams are taking them more seriously and exploiting their flaws
3. They aren't really an elite team and were overacheiving
4. They took their early success for granted
Can't win games when you get out-rebounded +10 and let the team shoot 50% on you.
a Serge Ibaka defensive type enforcer would be more needed.
That is a good trade proposal. The Knicks wouldn't be losing to teams like the Kings and Blazers with that roster. I'm not sure if the Bobcats would even want Amar'e to be their towel boy.
