    Thanks for another great game thread.

    Did we learn anything from last night? Can we carry forward what we did right late in the game, instead of what we did wrong starting in the 2nd quarter? I guess we'll find out. Minnesota is a really beatable team, but then again, so are we. Let's go Knicks!

    Pre-game show saying that Acy, who did not play last night, will rejoin the starting lineup and JR will go back to the bench.

    Defense continues to be poor and our shooters are cold. Shump is 1 for 9 in a JR Smith-esque display of following a great game with a miserable one so far. Melo trying to get us back in the game in the middle of the 2nd quarter, but we just look flat.

    Second night in a row we are going to allow 60+ points in the first half? Twolves with 58 with a minute and a half left to go in the 1st half.

    When is Fisher going to put Dally, Stat, and Acy in a lineup this season? Especially vs small-ball teams like the Wolves, Bucks, Magic, Pistons, and have Larkins & Shump slash to the basket so our bigs could score on put backs.

    Stat Spose to average 25 to 30 pts on all the small-ball teams we played .. but Fisher rather jumper jumper jumper all game.

    51 - 64 halftime guess who got the lead

    None of these idiots know how to pass to Stat in the middle, WHY?
    Because they never practice passing down low .. when Melo always calling for the ball on the perimeter
    Stat wants outta here!!!

    We're pretty terrible at this point. Are we going to be the team that loses to Philly when we play them on Saturday night in MSG? Geez, I hope not, but we may be their best chance to win a game

    With 3 minutes left in the third quarter, our starting PF and C (Act & Daly) have a combined 5 points and 4 rebounds. Meanwhile, our top 3 guards (Larkin, Shump, & JR) have a combined 8 points (3-15 shooting). We are playing a lousy defensive team... Not the 80s Pistons.

    Other than that... Lol.


    look, we'll never know what might have been this year if we didn't play first 15 games without Calderon and Bargnani.... But we do know that this team is a long, long way away. We are so bad... I'm not even sure we'll be able to attract any type-a, max free agent. Why would rondo, dragic or gasol come to NY when they can make more elsewhere (considering tax issues) and have a better shot to win.

    we also have no draft pick in 2016...
    So, our best bet is to TANK the season and get a lottery pick and hope we land a top 3 selection. That is how we improve.

    Yeah, I hear you, but the reality is that with 69 games to play, we're only 2 and a half games out of a playoff seed in the East. You don't want to watch an entire season of terrible basketball just for a chance at a possible impact player in the future. I want Calderon to get healthy and us to turn into some semblance of a functional team. Until then, we are continuing to play bottom 3 lottery ball.

    Dont feel bad the Nets loss to the Bucks too .. in a triple overtime.
    Giannis is the man. The thought of us waiving him, and Kidd picking him up off waiver gave Giannis a future in the NBA.
