I want this win more than the Heat one
Melo coming out like a man on a mission. Unfortunately, as we all know with this team, it's not how you start, but how you finish and hopefully we won't continue to have no legs when it matters in the 2nd half. As far as this game, I think this is a freebie for us and the pressure is on Indiana. If they beat us in their house, no big deal. If we beat them in their house, it takes them down a peg. Let's go Knicks!
We're going to win this one; we're better than IND. We just need a coach that can make the team believe that night in and out.
Here comes JR!
Y'know, I was thinking, James Dolan must laugh his ass off at the Pacers owner. Dolan can put a team 10 games under 0.500 on the court and have the Knicks be in the top 5 in the league in attendance. The Pacers could have the best record in the NBA and still be at risk at having the worst attendance in the league. Man, how does NBA basketball stay in Indiana?
Here's a fun fact, Chris Copeland is playing 5.8 minutes a game for Indiana and that's with Indiana having the best record in the league with plenty of garbage time at the end of games. Man, was that a terrible career move for Copeland.
Also, Melo for three and we lead by one at the end of the 1st quarter.
At halftime, Woodson and Vogel should have an incredulous facial expression competition.
KMart with a sprained ankle, big loss for us, he has been an anchor for this team lately.
Melo with 20 points, rest of team 19. Well, at least the rest of our guys are contributing by also playing lame defense.
Its the Bobcats game i feel we need to win 8-10 times...we're lucky if we win half of them...Face it, the pacers are probably the best team this year, so i for one don't think a loss today is a huge deal. They play amazing defense. We don't, and D wins games 98% of the time
We're getting smoked now.
63 f**king points.......
giving up 63 pts in the first half...oh, and its the most the Pacers have scored this year...think about it, they have played the Bucks, 76ers, Bobcats, Celtics...i think you get the idea
Is it me or is Tyson defensively useless to our team
