    This is a winnable game. I'll never forget the last game at the Garden where Melo/Woodson/Beno had an EPIC collapse to close the game out. I also didn't realize how accurate ESPN may end up being about our team when it appeared we were trying our best to prove them wrong by falling several games shy of it.

    He's simply been an absolute disaster on final possessions this year. He's easily cost us several games this year on last play execution.....

    Oh Well!!!!!!

    I can't see any positive in what you said especially since our players outside of Melo's production have been bringing it during our stretch of winning. What has been stated is that if Melo has a bad game we have no chance to win, which isn't true... more mythical when looking at our wins on the year.

    I guess much the same in Melo needing a running mate J.R. does too huh? Where was Earl's ROBIN, where was the player to take the pressure off of him? Why didn't he get the ball on the last play considering the game he had? Matter of fact if you look up J.R.'s numbers after his first 30gms....he's been pretty good. Of course this team is ran just the way the fans root for them.... HERO BALL and it's pretty much doomed us the entire season.

    Last night disapointment makes tomorrow's matinee showdown a must-win....oh and thanks for the JINX 3G....yes I am blaming you as we were on a 3 game winning streak while you were hiding...and yes as stated before we ain't winning without our MVP Melo having usual great games...Lebron has off games, but he has Dwade and Bosh to pick him up. Who has Melo had all season to him up??? Nobody as evidenced by Melo's minutes load. It's great JR, STAT and company are FINALLY picking up thier production, but it might be a case of too little, too late. If we miss the playoffs this year, it won't be because of the NBA's minutes leader and second leading scorer. It will be because the other 11 guys on this roster didn't play to their potential on chief....

    Never match (a 60%) Melo with (a 100%) Lebron or (a 99%) DWade, thats like matching Reggie Miller with either Pippin or Jordan.
    Thats a lopsided matchup.

    Melo had no help from his teammates for two important reason:
    1) Melo (just like Marbury) dont practice with his teammates.
    2) Melo started the season off being a BALL-HOGGER for 45+ minutes in each of the first 30 games.
    At the beginning of the season u heard every commentator say, "Melo have his teammates standing around on offense.".
    In the middle of the season, u heard several commentator say, "Melo's high minutes and touch of the ball should be averaging 5 to 7 assist per game.".

    We had strong rebounders in Tyson, K-Mart, Amare, and MWP, why weren't they assigned to be our defensive-rebounders in training-camp, and the pre-season games?

    lol I was around at the start of the Wizards game. I recently missed the incredibly boring Utah game and was exhausted Friday during the Brooklyn game. So you're trying to call me out because I missed 2gms? Go look at the 2 game threads and count the number of different posters in those threads...you won't find more than 3-4 if that. Get out of here you clown.

    You're traumatized at Melo's EPIC failure this year in the clutch. He's been a complete utter abomination and that's putting it nicely. If he had converted at least 20% of our clutch situations this year we'd be a playoff team. Or if he allowed someone else a chance at HERO BALL maybe we'd be a playoff team but he wants all the glory and when he comes up short as he has a myriad of tries this year....he either walks off the court in a haste or smiles like he's still cooler than ice that's what naturally built punks do.

    Now we're looking at 2 yrs in a row as the season closes him complaining about his shoulder and his lobbyist lapping it up like a dog drinking water out of his doggy dish in the heat of the summer.

    For the record I didn't not watch today's matinee game against the Heat, did not care to. The last 30gms of the season I haven't taken watching this team seriously. I've probably watched about 60% of the games over this stretch. They haven't been enjoyable to watch even when they win. This season has been a disaster and say what you want about Smith and Stat coming on late it still doesn't nullify Melo's in ability to show up in the clutch. I also told you guard play is the biggest gauge to our success not Melo's play......because Melo pretty much puts up his career numbers on most nights whether he shoots under 40% fg for a 3rd of the season or not.

    I could clearly say the past 3-4gms if J.R. Smith doesn't put up the numbers he has we easily get blown out in apologetic fashion yet you'd ask me to look deeper into Smith's season as a whole for his responsibilities of failure. I've been asking you all season to do the same for Melo but you won't because you're maddenly in lust over him. I've underlined 2 points in my post reason alone Melo deserves blame among other things he's done to shape our season. Make no mistake about it though we lost as a team as we have all year.....everyone is responsible for this train wreck season.

    Oh and I guess it's Melo's shoulder acting up again. But like I say unlike Lebron Melo has no choice but to play because there is NO ONE else to pick up the slack. Take last night for example, Melo at 50% still has to be on the floor for us to have a shot because he draws so much attention from opposing defenses. If Melo sits out, JR isn't free to drop 30+++. That's why Melo is leading the league in minutes. Not because "iso-Melo" ballhogging, it's because you can't count on the rest of our roster on a nightly basis. JR is just starting to come around a week before the playoffs. "Mr Sore Knees" STAT hasn't played starter minutes ALL SEASON for his 20+++ million And don't get me started on the Bargiani trade....The Craptors are in the playoffs because they unloaded thier garbage on us. If you think Melo wants to miss the playoffs for the first time in his career and have to hear Colin Cowherd and the rest if the no-nothing talking heads talk snack you guys are crazy...

    I watch the game over my boys house where there's lots of ole Trevor Ariza fans pointing-out Ariza defensive tactics on Melo.
    They counted 11 Melo turnovers, but only 9 were on the stat sheet .. plus the change of the game was when Woody took Amare out the game to put in Melo having a 5 point lead, with 7 min remaining in the 4th qtr.. Melo became our only BIG on the court.
    Amare walked off the court upset, and the next 3 offensive possession went to Melo to give the Wizards a 2 point lead.
    President Phil Jax had no emotion on his face watching the Knicks poor performance the final 6 minutes of the game.
    The Knicks last two plays of the game explain our losing season .. a team that never practice plays!
