    Nyk Logo Utah Jazz@ New York Knicks

    It looks like the Knicks came to play tonight, I'm tuning in on MSG and the first half was great. Randolph and Marbury showed up tonight. Halfway through the third there looking pretty good, hopefully we can finish out what we started.

    What I saw during this game was that the fans haven't given up on the Knicks yet, and that when we play as a team we can compete with the best in the leage. I loved hearing the garden come alive, I just wish I could have been there! I hope that we can beat the Celtics this thursday on national television and then all the haters can go F-off!

    I didn't get to watch the game but judging from your description of the move, i think it was the same move he did when he was still with chicago. it was actually the very first time i learned about jamal crawford, seeing it on nba action (i think). that was SICK! anyway great that he's still got the moves. hope we could still see him do that pass-to-himself-off-the-backboard alleyoop dunk (but not forced of course).

    anyway despite celtics being the best offensive (IMO) and defensive (no question) team in the nba, the knicks CAN beat them on a given day. i really hope knicks win cos losing would in my opinion destroy any momentum they hoped to have, and end up having another long losing streak.

    It was a very good game for the whole team. They played very well on offense. There defense was good, but it wasnt great like most of you are sayin. Its nice that they blocked 6 shots but they still gave up 109 points and I thought the Jazz got too many points in the paint. When you got big guys like Z-Bo and Curry, they need to use their size to keep players out of the paint. Im not just talking about intimidatin them or blocking their shots, Im also talking about bodying them up. They are 2 of the stronger players in the league and they need to use their size to their advantage.

    Crawford is a mystery to me. Hes got quick hands and good reflexes, so why isnt he a better defender? He got burned a couple times, one time was really embarrassing. Deron Williams crossed crawford over and made him look stupid. There was a couple of times though where Crawford did a good job of gettin a steal and deflecting the ball so someone else could come up with the steal. Hes got all the tools a player needs to be a good defender. The only thing he lacks is the mental part of it which seems to be the most important part of defense. Hes gotta go into a game sayin to himself "Im gonna give that RAy allen a tough night. Im gonna get in his face everytime he shoots a jumper." Because crawford mainly focuses on offense, He often looks retarded while trying to defend other players.

    Marbury played a great game, got a little sloppy at times but overall it was a great game for him. I hope all yall haters watched the past 2 games. This team wouldnt be **** if it wasnt for Marbury. There wouldnt be any chance of the knicks making the playoffs. This guy can score, defend, pass, and hes a leader. Were talking about one of the 10 BEST F*CKIN POINT GUARDS IN THE NBA.

    Good blocks by Curry, I'm still not sure about the 2nd block on Deron Williams but I still think he has a lot of room for improvement on defense. He has to learn how to get better positioning and to use his size. The blocks are nice but sometimes it can look like someone played good defense when you look at the statistics. I think the best defenders play defense in a way where they dont necessarily need that stats. Kurt Thomas is considered one of the better defenders in the league, but he wasnt a good shot blocker.

    The Knicks overall played better defense than normal, but theyre gonna have to step it up even more on thursday if they hope to beat the Celtics.

    He has long arms and quick hands which leads more to one on one steals. But, he is slow afoot reacting to the opponents first step. He can catch up ok if help defense slows the guy down.

    Lol; yea that's the one, someone needs to put that ONE play on you tube but they need to start it off from the Defensive end when Steph backed off as Brewer leaned into him for a J in the paint. As Steph backed off Brewer fell forward since he was trying to draw a blocking foul on Steph.

    The play was 10 times more exciting considering the few defensive sequences that occured prior to and after the play.

    Man that was such a Hot Move!
    Ouch, I'm sure it was on Sports center top 10, can I view them online??

    Ouch... Sizzle, I'm too hyped, this is sad... lol

    Knicks actually looked good tonight. I'm not going to get my hopes up yet because everytime I do, they let me down. But, 10 steals and 6 BLOCKS!! And 2 from Curry!! Hopefully they can build on this win and learn that defensive effort will win them games. If Marbury can play like this all season I will retract all of my previous negative statements. The players looked like they were supporting Marbury and each other. Maybe all of the negativity brought them together. Wait! What am I doing? I'm getting my hopes up again!! I've got to stop that. If they show this kind of effort consistently, then I will have faith.

    Marbury was never the issue. He always takes the blame for everything based on his selfish track record. He is still the best player on the Knicks. Isaiah needs to get his head out his behind, and let Steph do what he did tonight, every night. Take the ball out of Crawford's hands so much, let him run of screens as he did tonight, so those stupid carrying violations he commits at least 20 times a game won't happen as much. Zeke has no imagination on offense with this team at all. And they are never going to play good team defense. So they have to score. And it should be balanced instead of always forcing it to turnover Prone and black hole Zach and Curry.

    Isaiah is getting fired.
