Pablo was awesome tnite.
The ball moved. We defended. We won. It's a simple game.
Hot Damn! we played "TEAM-BALL" with 48 minutes of DEFENSE forcing the Pacers to commit 21 turn-overs .. we let our bigmen score early in the game to get them pump-up on the defensive-end .. we actually ran a 2nd half lineup with both bigmen Tyson & Martin on the court protecting the paint which force the Pacers to take outside shots while we went on a 30-4 run .. Fantastic!
Melo played the role of a super-star letting all his teammates warm-up on the offensive-end as they entered the game, Melo did the majority of his scoring in the 2nd-half of the game, plus Melo's strong effort on the defensive-end got his teammates defensive-effort following suit. Great Team Win!
We shot 49% as a team, scoring over 100 points by letting our DEFENSE lead our offense ....
We played winning playoff Basketball, we only need 3 more games like this to watch the Knicks play basketball in the ECF...
this is my fave avatar of the moment, props to the 'tard
spike photobomb? classic!
30-4 run... SMHH (shake my happy head)
I felt more threatened by the Celtics than I do the Pacers. I just don't see any possible scenario where they beat us 4 times
I think the Pacers can beat us if we don't play team basketball w max intensity. They are a tough, well coached team that can defend.

Defensively, KMart's shot contesting has West rattled. Tyson, dude, take notes. Hibbert is so much slower than TC, and advantage needs to be taken. Watching his footwork is like watching snails f*ck.
How did we WIN Game-2 .....
Knicks players "Tyson, Felton, Prig, Martin, Copeland" all became hype with extra-energy early in the first-half from getting several touches to score.
The Knicks won on the strength of Melo finally letting his teammates control the offense in the first half of the game.
Melo became the super-star finisher in the 2nd-half to put the icing on the WIN by receiving strong-effort from all his teammates on both ends of the court, where garbage time came the final 5 minutes of the game. The Pacers were not prepared for such a strategical-change from Woody & Melo.
Adding a run-run uptempo Stat to the rotation to run the Pacers bigmen the next 3 games will win the series.
Forcing Stat to play a slow-slow walk the ball up court on every Knicks offensive-possession will not win one game in the Indiana Pacers rowdy-crowd stadium.
