    Good One Rady

    We're an 11.5 point underdog so let's be real. It's gonna be a very tough game for The Knicks, but we have a mindset of champions after yesterdays BIG WIN in San Antonio. If we play with the same intensity and don't run out of gas in the second half, anything can happen. Let's go Knicks

    every win is a big one for the knicks...BUT... the knicks do better against the spurs type of team...slow and deliberate... Houston more run n gun, with young legs... tougher game... then on to dallas where they should compete...

    Our bench needs to score tonight for us to win this game....no 15 pts from the bench....last time we played them we were home and lost by 3. They are a better home team unlike us. I think it will be a close game. Did Chandler play last time

    Yeah, this is my fear, that we only beat the Spurs because they didn't push after our biggest weaknesses (except maybe going after Udrih who may be the worst defensive guard in the league). We can win this game, but Houston has a much better chance to just run us off the court than the Spurs did.

    This Back to Back Texas road trip will rely on Mike Woodson running a 10 man rotation, and not adding any bullshiiii restriction to PF Amare & PF K-Mart.

    This WIN in Houston tonight will depend mostly on "ISO-Melo & JRsmith" ball movement throughout the first 3 quarters .. like last night JR shocked the Knicks fans nation with a performance of looking for the open-man, only taking 1 shot before the 4th qtr. . Im so used to JR shooting 3-13 before the start of the 4th qtr..

    Melo having 4 assist in the 3rd qrt., plus hustling for the lose balls lastnight was ..... will Melo repeat that performance tonight???

    The Shump & Murry tandem in the backcourt are something we should build on.

    I too saw something with these 2 playing together....maybe it wasn't just a 1 night thing. Lets hope Woody saw it too, and will play them together a bit tonight. I believe Hardaway would excell against these guys also. A couple of easy fast break points by THJ would be nice

    Murry needs to stay in the rotation permanently.
