Knicks were clearly feeling themselves too much. Reality check biiitches!
Knicks continue to have a highly inflated sense of how good they are. Wizards allowed to shoot lights out to start -- Knicks look excellent in stretches to get leads and then promptly stop trying on D. Happened several times tonight.
Wizards came in averaging 91 PPG, 42 percent FG and 34 percent 3s. They've eclipsed 100 tonight by shooting 53 percent, 11-of-20 from downtown.
For the record, Kidd sucks now. Not sure why he's still starting. He brings nothing to the table. We don't need players standing around waiting for a chance to launch a 3 to start the game.
The Knicks wanted to go 10-2 until the Allstar break, that was our 2nd loss, so from here out nothing but wins
I thought this was a trap game, anytime you're playing against the team with the worst record sets you up to come in over confident despite the Wiz having won 6/7 of their last games at home. Lot of work to do after the ASG, one of the WC GMs said the Bulls Heat and Pacers are better than the Knicks in the east and OKC Spurs Clips and even the Rockets are better than the Knicks in the West. Games like today give you some reality about winning a chip.
Lets be real about this road Loss to the 2nd losing team in the NBA ....
A game inwhich we shouldve gave a lot of playingtime to our bench-players
SF-Melo 44 min
PG-Felton 40 min
C-Tyson 36 min
SG-JR 35 min
This is why I could never get overly excited about this team. They win five consecutive games at home and then throw up a diarrhea performance against another lousy team.
It appears like they just simply looked at their 4th quarter stat sheet of the regular season and thought that the Wizards were going to spread their cheeks and bend over for them.
On a night in which the majority of the top teams in the EC come out victorious the NY Knicks get bullied in the final 12 minutes of the game by a team that came in to the game having only 12 wins.
Trevor Ariza and James Singleton should have been selected for the all-star team with the way the Knicks defense made them look tonight.
This game is so reminiscent of those late 90's games in which the Knicks would only show up to play for 3 quarters. What an embarrassing game this turned out to be.

hate to say this, but Felton lost us this game. His defense once again was doodoo.
The real winner of the game was this man...
He will wet his bed tonight after knowing that one of his prodigies had one of the games of his life.
I realize Shump is still trying to get back to form but Woody should consider having him guard the best perimeter player on the opposing team instead of Felton. I'm getting sick of opposing guards lighting us up every game.
