this may be a tough game for the knicks. we may see a lot more of cato, he used to play with yao and might be able to shut him down more then eddy. also problems with alston and t-mac breaking down the d. but if the knicks can stop that and play with energy i like our chances
Knicks need to hit the boards hard. If Crawford plays like he did against Denver then we definitely have a shot. I know Francis is excited to return to Houston and I hope that he plays. Hopefully his excitement won't lead to him making bad decisions though.
Knicks only turn the ball over 9 times and they still lose the game. They are playing defense though. The Knicks play some of their best ball when Balkman and Lee are on the floor together. As soon as they develop a consistent jump shot good things will happen for the Knicks.
Patience is key here peops. Yes I agree with Frye needing to take a seat until he gets his rhythm back. But guess who Eddy was playing the past two games...a more mobile, athletic center in Marcus Camby and only the best center in the league in Yao Ming. I think you guys are trying to invest too much into Eddy Curry. He's a offensive powerhouse but he just doesn't have the mentality to be a consistent defensive presence. Give the kid a break...he's our best post option...he will hopefully sooner or later turn into somewhat of a defender...
why should we give curry a break? he really has done nothing for the knicks. when he comes on the floor the ball stops moving, gets thrown to him and he does the same hook shot every time. actually he has a new move this year! a fade away. id say it is the most embarasing fade away ive ever seen. he isnt an offensive powerhouse if you ask me and is possibly the worst defesive player ive ever seen. i think hes had plenty of chances to become a good player and hasnt improved one bit since coming to the knicks. lets hope jerome james proves not to be a complete bust when he comes back on to the court.
