    Thanks for a great game thread. Will Melo sit tonight after logging 46 minutes last night? Also, apparently Dalembert tweaked his ankle last night. Running out of guys, although Acy does come back tonight and possibly JR Smith (probably not). Huge underdogs and we should play loose because we have nothing to lose. If we lose this game, no one will bat an eye. If we win this game, Portland will be humiliated, so maybe they'll play tight if we can keep it close. Who knows. Let's go Knicks!

    Anything is possible htr10 esp if LA is out with respiratory infection but more likely after a close OT loss the boys have to be down and tired and face playing in a back to back. I'm expecting a laugher for the Blazers tonight.

    Took us 4 and a half minutes to already be down by 10. Every game feels like the same game. Fall down huge early, rally a little bit in the 2nd quarter, hang around in the 3rd quarter, and then lose in the 4th quarter.

    We've given up 10 three pointers in a quarter and a half and are losing by 18. Nothing really more to say.

    Portland bench players got a 20 point lead 6 minutes before halftime (Lillard only took 2 shots).

    Last night, I watched center DeMarcus Cousins put up Ewing numbers on us .. 39 pts, 11 rbs, 4 ast, 2 blks, 5 fouls in 32 minutes on 52% shootin.

    Down by 14 at the half, but could be much worse. Melo is just plain hobbled out there and should sit out the 2nd half after playing 46 minutes last night. Aldrich lone bright spot with 9 rebounds in the first half in his second straight start. No reason anyone else should start at center other than Aldrich this year as long as he is healthy.

    Melo will sit out 2nd half. Down to 8 players now.

    Aldrich, THJ, and now with Melo out, Wear, all young guys getting big minutes. Just wish Early was healthy and available as well. If you are going to be this bad, at least see what you got in the young guys. Aldrich at the very least having a nice game with 8 points and 12 rebounds less than halfway through 3rd quarter.

    Knicks don't even have a team option on Aldrich. I'd rather play Dally all year rather than audition Cole for another team. If Aldrich puts up decent numbers he's good for a big raise from someone.

    12 points and 14 rebounds for Aldrich with several minutes left in the 3rd quarter. I am harping on Aldrich's nice game as it is literally the only positive thing for us tonight as we are now losing by 24.

    Yeah, I hear you, but I doubt Aldrich goes so big that he becomes a sought after free agent. Also, we could maybe trade him for a second round pick if we're lucky before the deadline. I don't think anyone really wants Dalembert at this point. He looks done.

    THJ 3 for 14 so far. He continues to not look like he will never be a starting option for us. He never seems to seize an opportunity. Larkin looks more useful than THJ.
