basically, we have to let brand get his and work on containing everyone else. that means good perimeter d, boarding well, and not turning the ball over. if we do that and stay aggressive on offense i think we can win.
maggette is questionable, as of right now, its a game time decision, i really hope hes out, but they still have many weapons to deal with, the way to win this game, is to try and contain brand (however youre supposed to do that i dunno), no open looks from deep for mobley and cassell, box out kaman and brand
- win rebounds
- come out stron with early intensity, and intensity throughout for that matter
-give channing the ball, as clyde said last night "hes automatic"
29 -16 in the fourth...we could really have win this game. maybe they were to tired because of yesterday game in Seattle...
Curry was great!if he keeps playing like this, he will become the big inside force we deseperatly wait and need!
But all the other staters were completely out of their shoes! 3 on 16 for Marbury with only 2 assist (kind of a carrer low?!) and why did Frye play only 17 minutes? even Penny hardaway played more!
the 4th was horrible... frye didn't play enough because he didn't have his shot and was getting schooled by elton brand.. still i was glad i went to the game, played good for 3 quaters, sam cassell got away with a bull flop on marbuy that got the game out of reach. curry looked great, i hope he keeps it up. and i wish ariza would of played, being that they made such a big deal about jamal and nate playing in their hometowns. oh if anyone knows how to post pictures, i have some from the game.
Yeah, the back to back games took its toll in the 4th - the knicks just ran out of gas - Marbury's intense D on Ray the night b4 and then did a good job on mobley and smigel aka Cassell - really sapped all his energy, resulting in his wayward shooting and bricking layups...
Same for Jamal - it was the first time I saw him so active on D
I think they are coming together as a team....things are looking up for the knicks
