Knicks have had three tough losses this year- Chicago, Houston, Indiana. In each of those games, they just needed one more thing to go their way to pull out the W.
Chicago- Rose hits the contested shot to win it by 1.
Houston- Melo could have gotten continuation on that shot. If he hit the free throw, they go up by 1.
Indiana- Shump fouled George, but refs usually let that go!
That would put the Knicks at 6-5. 4-3 without Chandler.
I hate what-if scenarios, what's done is done. BUT, this is truth.
When the NY media is blasting 3-8 in your face, I'd probably question my ability too.
I have confidence that this team will pull it together. There IS a of talent. There may not be any other "superstars", but there are a lot of dynamic players that aren't dead weight! They will eventually sit down and think, "we're better than this". That's when they start winning some games, building up their confidence and team chemistry.
