    I can't stay away from this team, even if it may be the worst team, compared to my expectations, that I have supported in a very, very long time. Everything is wrong with this team right now, literally, every thing from top to bottom. Twolves probably going to hand us our head while we have to hear about how we'll pursue Love next offseason (pipe dream right now, why would anyone come here), but whatever, let's go Knicks!

    We're off to a hot start, but man, if you are a fan of building to the future, then this is not the game for you. Lineup of Chandler, Melo, Stat, JR Smith, and Felton logging heavy minutes in the 1st quarter.

    Also, we continue to make just baffling defensive lapses, but that's not exactly a newsflash.

    Neither team executing at all now in the first quarter. Looks like a playground game. We're winning by double digits because we have a couple guys who have been knocking down some shots while the Twolves just look flat so far.

    Melo already with 13 points with still a minute and a half left to go in the 1st quarter. The real question is though, why is Melo playing the entire first quarter when we're winning by double digits. When's the last time we haven't looked exhausted and been outplayed in the 4th quarter?

    We pretty much dominated that 1st quarter, leading 38-24, but if you think we can sustain this effort for 3 more quarters with how much Woodson continues to overplay our main rotation guys, you must know something that I don't.

    Veteran lineup of Chandler, Melo, Stat, JR Smith, and Felton continues to thrive against this Twolves squad. Lead back up to as much as 17, but still, our execution continues to teeter-tooter between divine and disgusting from one play to the next.

    Can't complain too much about the offense with 66 points in the 1st half, but man, defensive lapse after defensive lapse capped off by allowing a 90 foot pass for an easy two to close out the half. Will 11 points be enough of a lead when our guys start deflating in the 2nd half because of terrible minutes management? Well, based on the last month, no, absolutely not.

    Amazing what happens when Melo gets some help balanced scoring by all Feltip actually showed well for once...his personal problems obviously bothering him a whole lot; nice win for our boys to get off the snide... Gift be darn near perfect down the stretch here to keep our slim playoff hopes alive you get in and it's a whole new season!!

    Really our good guard play along with balanced attack across the rotation is more evidence of our success than any 1-2 individuals trying to gunsling. The pulse of our team has been this way since Linsanity and isn't tied to what Melo provides. It also doesn't help to play against teams who put on one of their worst performances contrary to how they usually play...Kevin Love was a disaster yesterday and I mean an absolute disaster.

    Nevertheless the game yesterday was the ultimate tease, we're gonna go right back to reality very quickly.
