    This was a great game overall progress wise.

    Amar'e played very well, Shump is on the court, and we won. Did Amar'e and Melo look good on the court together?

    ^ They seemed to play off each other pretty well, imo.

    Tyson only average 24 minutes per game with Dallas .. Tyson never got the chance to get tired or aghausted on the court for coach Calisle, Tyson played every minute with fresh-runnin-legs in the regular & postseason games with Dallas .. Plus Dallas had a strategic 2-unit rotation that gave them the deepest depth in the league in 2010-11

    The return of Stat, Shump, Felton, and Camby should give us the same strategic 2-unit rotation with great depth on offense/defense.

    I was at the game last night for my first live NBA game. The atmosphere wasn't that great but I think that's because basketball is still growing over here in the UK and fans don't really know how to act.

    I thought the game itself was pretty good, obviously made all the better with a Knicks win.

    Melo started red hot but his shot stopped falling in the second half but kept getting his points with some good work in the post.
    Amar'e looked like he's starting to get back to 100%. Still needs to get his legs under him but he drew fouls well (lost count of how many free throws he took, but he made the vast majority of them) and when he gets some explosiveness back they will become and-one opportunities.
    Was great to see Shump back, and it looked like he hasn't lost anything. Again needs to get his conditioning and timing back but got in on the act with some decent shooting (2/3 3 pointers I think) and a good steal and lay-up. Would have loved for his baseline drive and dunk attempt to have gone down. Encouraging to see him give that a go in his first game back though.

    It looked a bit like we eased off the gas in the third and let them back in to the game but JR and Novak hit some shots to push the lead back up around 20.

    Really great getting to see the Knicks in action, I hope one day I'll be able to visit the Garden to see a game with all the New York atmosphere too.

    Good post Chris and thanks for the game overview. I was most impressed by the way Shumpert jumped right in like he never left. His confidence is key to his success. Amare played his best offensive game so far but he's still having trouble finishing his shots or rather getting them up. He definitely keeps the ball too low. I've seen plenty of times where he gets the pass chest high but then gears up for a jump and lowers the ball below his waist. I've always said he should study Duncan and Gasol to learn how to maintain your height advantage with the ball in the paint.

    When Felton returns, things will start to improve dramatically and Kidd's game will be more valuable to us. The only blemish is that our two (aged but effective) defensive big men are out indefinitely.

    It was a great game. Obviously, a W was out of question, but still, my first Knicks game ever. We had also a couple of postgame beers with ChrisN7, though his girl didn't seem too happy about us talking anything but our much beloved Knickerbockers.

    Also was my first NBA/Knicks game. And me and my girlfriend had an awesome time! Although we had seats way up on the second tier, we still had a great view on the court. Shumpert making his season debut made everything that much special, and my girlfriend lost her mind when Melo walked up on the court
    This was one of the most special days of my life even if a W was almost certain.
