No Melo, no Felton, no Sheed, no Shump, no show Novak, Stat shaking off the rust, Camby out the fourth quarter, JR bruised with a puffy patch sitting between his eyes, and we only lost by 5 points while keeping Indy to just 81 points (at the Pacers home). We could have won against a ball club thatís arguably one of the best defensive teams in the league.
As I said numerous timesÖ this team is capable of beating anyone. We just need to stay healthy, especially going into the post season. Iím glad that we are getting all the bad mistakes and decision making out the way now.
There were a lot of lessons to be learned in this week alone, hopefully the Knicks learned them and will make the needed adjustments. By our 60th or so game we should be more comfortable and confident and Iím sure we will not just be a 3ball and iso team either. Health and Defense are my only concerns.
