New York has averaged 63.0 points in the first half over its last three games. Carmelo Anthony led the team with 23 points and seven rebounds over 33 minutes.

    Supposedly Shump is going to play but I would prefer to see JR start the game tonight and play the bulk of the minutes.

    Heard about Cleanthony, damn he's hardly played many minutes and he needs a scope.

    The pundits had the Bucks as the 2nd worst team in the EC but they ain't been that bad.

    Thanks for the great game thread.

    Interesting game tonight. If we really have figured some system level things out, we should be able to handle Milwaukee, even on their home court. If Sunday was a fluke for us, they have played well enough this season to run us out of the building. Let's go Knicks!

    Pre-game show opens with both JR and Shump being in the starting lineup. I like this idea. Try to get the players who have been playing the best on the floor. Remainder of starting lineup is Melo, Dalembert, and Larkin, so we will be once again going with a small lineup, at least to start.

    Too many different starting lineups for me, I don't have a problem with Melo at PF but he needs to stick with it.

    Dally protecting the rim. He does that as well as Chandler IMO. Wish he were a 30 min player though.

    Offense definitely seems to be clicking, even if a lot of our scoring has had to come off second efforts. Defense wasn't there as that 1st quarter went along though. Until we can consistently defend against the driving PGs, we will continue to allow other teams to outscore their averages against us

    Our offense has stalled altogether and our defense can't keep us in the game. This is quickly turning into a formula to get blown out. Our ball movement remains good, but with our shooters having gone cold, we're not going to have a chance when they're getting easy points in the paint.

    We just let a team that averages 91 points a game drop 66 points on us in the 1st half. Yikes.
