I guess ray felton is needed more then not. I hate saying it but it gives us another aggresive player on the floor and at least keeps the d on his toes. I mean look at our record without him...

Honestly we need one more person in the rotation that's a threat to drive to the basket (Other than Felton, JR and Melo I mean). Hopefully this is what Shump will bring to the table. There's just way to much jump-shooting, not enough ball movement and willing to drive-dish to create easy chances.
I hate watching the stagnant style of play we saw tonight.
P.S. I'm all for keeping Novak as he drags a forward out of the lane and the D can't fall off him, but man he's got to learn to shoot with a hand in his face or else he's completely useless.
Felton haters are getting just what they wanted here, games like this with the man on the bench.
ZERO FAST BREAK POINTS.
of course, Melo would have made a big difference, unless he shoots 6-25...
face it, Knicks minus Melo+Felton = big suckfest
I was unsure of how important Felton was for us until about a week after he got hurt. Kidd can still get his against some teams but he was alot more effective and consistent with Raymond in there. Ray did a great job of finding players/attacking the rim off the pick and roll. How long again until he comes back?
wow, a month more of this (before Felton and Shump return)...we shouldn't fall too far in the standings...maybe to 3rd or 4th by time they return. Lets hope we are done with injuries
Indy played some great defense. We'd have a better chance with Carmelo playing, but apparantly feeding an NBA troll and getting suspended was more important than securing two possible Ws.
Your absolutely right, I blame "Sandy" on mother-nature ....
If Novak took 10+ shots, Stat took15+ shots, JR took 15 shots, and the other 50 shots were divided between the team .. and we lost, it would be a team lost.
PF-Melo playing point-foward lead us to be out-rebounded 3 of 5 games this season, lastnight JR Smith would not let PG-Pablo lead the point, so our offense depended on JR decision-making at the point which let JR take 29 shots hitting only 10 .. what do u call 10-29 shooting?
is that the same as 6-26 shooting?
Woody's level of coaching performance is going down-hill as the season goes on, by letting Dolan's boy Melo & JR lead the point, the two ex-Denver players cant lead a fastbreak or get out on transition .. so why would u give such "individual-players" the comfort of receiving the ball when 20 seconds or more are on the shot clock .. untill Melo & JR learn how to create for their teammates they should receive the ball when 10 seconds or less are left on the shot-clock .... The same method PG-Chauncey Billups used to take Denver to the WCF.
What's bad is Felton has never been in the top-15 PG who's a creator for his teammates during his NBA career, this is why Felton (like JR) are force to take so many bad shots .. Felton almost became a top-10 creative PG in 2010 with Stat, untill traded to Denver where PG-Ty Lawson got Gallo & W.Chandler more involve in the offense then Felton.
I swear we must be cursed !
Felton, sheed, camby and shump down. Stat's doctor telling coach to cut his minutes, all we need now is for them to pull an alan houston and ask him to retire.
****, in a little bit Copeland will be our main offense if these injuries keep piling up
