    Got to try to keep rolling without either Chandler or Stat tonight while the details of the Phil Jackson hire continue to surface. This franchise sure doesn't seem to be acting like its making a desperate run for the 8th seed right now, but we need to keep this winning streak rolling if we're going to have any chance of catching Atlanta. Let's go Knicks!

    If we were in tank mode I wouldn't mind if Aldrich and Tyler got minutes but we aren't we can still get that 8th seed. If Sullinger or Humphries go off for 15 RBs I'm not going to like Chandler not being there esp with no explanation as to why he's out.

    I'd really like to see the Knicks trade him and get something in return for him, I don't see him being here after his contract is through.

    8-0 Celtics run, they'll need all of the 20 pt lead. Lets hope the boys don't go cold. Clark and Cole have done a nice job.

    Cole playing some game, who needs Chandler. Looks like we'll take sole possession of 9th place with Detroit losing to Toronto.

    I hate rooting for that big donut Cole Aldrich as he is a Jayhawk but he I am cool as long as is doing it in a Knicks uni. New Melo jersey on the way $50 free shipping on NBAstore if anyone else is interested getting into PLAYOFF mode

    Nice win for the Knicks. Strong team effort. THJ continues to thrive as our 2nd or 3rd scorer.

    It seems like Tyson is always out when we need him the most.

    Curious about his absence, they said he was out on personal reasons, I wonder if anything happened to him or his family. The postseason is near and his playoff experience - since it seems we finally decided to make a push for the 8th seed - could come in hand.
    Glad to see Aldrich is getting minutes and puts up big numbers, he was barely used this season and he needs to gain some trust by April

    Supposedly a death in his family but it's unusual that the reason he's out hasn't been leaked. Chandler is a semi-tough guy anyway, can't wait till his contract expires or we trade him.

    The Boston Cetricks team I watch lastnight wouldve lost to the Knicks by 10 or more points without Tyson/Amare/K-Mart/Barg/and Melo in the lineup. A star player getting dress to play against a TANKING (Lottery-ball) Boston team is a drag.

    The Knicks rotation of players vs Boston shouldve consist of Murry/Prig/THJ/Shump/Brown/JR/Clark/Tyler/Cole
