    Thanks for the game thread, Rady. We're in second half limbo. No point in tanking because we don't have a pick. Winning doesn't do us a heck of a lot of good because best case scenario is that it would just put us on a course for a 1st round sweep. My hope is to develop some young assets and try to just play some good, solid, fundamental, watchable basketball. I can't wait until this season is over and Dolan can finally get rid of Woodson with a "clear conscience".

    Who'd they say is in walking boot and didn't travel I just missed it! Assuming Kmart? Won't lie partly tuned in to check for conspicuous absences of guys in trade rumors!

    Offense stinks. Defense stinks. Coach stinks. Apparently, an All-Star break doesn't magically fix that.

    I swear, if the other team sets one pick or makes one quick pass, it causes us to have a defensive breakdown 99% of the time.

    Can't afford to have this pathetic a performance right before the trade deadline. Our odds of doing something incredibly stupid is rising by the second.

    Great effort in the 3rd quarter, but we've seen this show over and over all year. Will we once again pay for only playing well part of the game and come up short yet again?

    More than halfway though the 4th quarter and the great 2nd half play continues. Can we close this one out?

    Well, if we do decide to trade THJ, his value is skyrocketing. He looks like a star in this second half.

    Woodson now showing he has no problem holding Felton out for the entire 4th quarter, but he continues to ride JR straight to the unemployment office. Much rather see Tyler or Shump out there.
