    Game Thread Pheonix Suns vs New York Knicks Pregame show with MSGKnickz33

    Back by popular demand, its MSGKnickz33 pregame show. Tune in to MSG tomorrow night at 7:00 to see if the Knicks can make it 2 straight and 4 out of their last 5. Lets take a look at the starting lineups for both teams.

    Starting Lineups
    Pheonix Suns vs New York Knicks
    Steve Nash vs Stephon Marbury
    Raja Bell vs Jamal Crawford
    Grant Hill vs Quentin Richardson
    Shawn Marion vs Zach Randolph
    Amare Stoudamire vs Eddy Curry

    Lets take a look at MSG33's pregame strategy


    • Crash the Boards: The Knicks are a better rebounding team than the Suns and they need every advantage they can get.
    • Slow down the Ball!!!! Playing Pheonix Suns style will lead to a loss, they are much better offensively then the Knicks.
    • Attack Amare!!!! Curry needs to aggressively take it at Amare and try to get him into foul trouble.
    • Share the Ball: Everyone in the Knicks starting lineup is capable of scoring 15 to 20 points, find who has the hot hand.
    • Do Not Double Team Nash: Hes too good at finding the open man so let Marbury go one on one with him.
    • Dont be afraid to go to the bench: Isiah needs to immediately bring in the energy guys if the Knicks fall behind early.


    Tomorrow Nights Key Matchup:

    Steve Nash vs Stephon Marbury


    Stephon Marbury is the key player for the Knicks. He needs to play great defense on Nash, preventing him from gettin easy baskets. If Marbury can successfully guard him one on one, this prevents easy baskets for Pheonix's perimeter players. Also, the Knicks as a team need to communicate when picks are being set for Nash. They cant let Pheonix beat them all night by setting picks for Nash.

    Jamal Crawford needs to know when to shoot and when not to shoot. If the shots aren't going in for him, he needs to look to pass the ball. Jamal also needs to try his best to defend Raja Bell on the perimeter, and when Bells not in the game there's no time for a break. Leandro Barbosa is an explosive 6th man who can put points on the board in a hurry.

    Quentin Richardson needs to do what he always does: Defend, rebound, and be the vocal leader that he is. Grant Hill should not be a difficult matchup for him.

    Zach Randolph needs to have a good game offensively. Shawn Marion is shorter than Zach, so Z-Bo should look to go to work against him down low. Expect over 20 points and 12 rebounds from Zach.

    Eddy Curry cannot stop Amare Stoudamire but the opposite is true also. The biggest difference is Amare Stoudamire does not stop Amare Stoudamire where as Eddy Curry sometimes stops Eddy Curry. Sometimes when Eddy gets frustrated, he picks up stupid fouls and turns the ball over. He needs to be focused on his difficult assignment, and thats doing his best to defend Amare, looking sharp on offense, and defending Pheonix guards looking to take it to the hoop.

    The bench needs to be ready to come into the game and immediately make an impact with their energy.

    Thanks for joining me for my pregame show, I'm your host MSGknickz33 and join me tomorrow night at halftime for my halftime report. Enjoy your Saturday night, and stay out of trouble. Thanks again.

    I'm actually really excited for this game, I think we can pull out a W. If we play consistent throughout the entire game like against the Jazz, we will have a chance. If we fall behind early like against the Bucks, we will not comeback against the Suns, no chance. Have to come out early and get the crowd into it early. I say, no I pray, Knicks 109 Suns 104.

    Eddy Curry's contribution is a big factor. He hasnt done anything past few games, not even scoring. If he can just man the paint: block a few shots, even just alter shots. One good hard foul and we'll be alright.

    Where the Uck is there defense? Zach and Eddy are too slow to play the Suns style. Isiah needs to make substitutions right now, get balkmen in there. They shouldve read my pregame strategy, play hard defense and play a 1/2 court game!!!! Damn, Pheonix aint missin.

    And we'll be back with you in a brief moment with details about how you can meet Eddy Curry, Zach Randolph, and Jerome James at Burger King.

    Im Msg33 and heres your halftime report.

    Lets take a look at some statistics:

    New York Knicks

    Zach Randolph-13pts, 4rbs
    Eddy Curry-14pts, 5rbs
    Stephon Marbury-8pts, 2 asts
    Quentin Richardson-5pts, 5 rbs, 5 asts
    Jamal Crawford-6pts (1-5), 3asts



    Pheonix Suns

    Steve Nash-8 asts
    Grant Hill-17pts, 4 asts
    Amare Stoudamire-9 pts, 6 rebs



    I mentioned in my pregame strategy that Grant Hill should be an easy cover for Quentin Richardson and I was obviously wrong. Grant Hill is leading the Suns with 17 points and its not that hes taking Richardson 1 on 1 everytime, Pheonix does a great job of moving the ball and finding the open man. They force defenses to switch creating mismatches.

    Eddy Curry and Zach Randolph had great first halfs offensively. They both have high shooting percentages and they have both chipped in on the boards. The Knicks are out-rebounding the Suns 20 to 15.

    Pheonix is one of the best teams at moving the ball around. Their 21 assists in the first half is a reflection of how unselfish they are. The Suns have 5 players on the court, but they always play as 1 team. The Knicks can be successful in they learn to do the same consistently.

    In the second half, the Knicks need to play better on the defensive end. They do not want to try to outscore the Suns, they need to win with defense.

    Join me after the game for my Postgame show. Thanks, and enjoy the 2nd half.

    Damn, Grant Hill just had Q for dinner. I thought Q would shut down Hill cuz i figured that they were about the same speed and that Q not having to guard someone quicker for a change would have no problem with Hill. Before anyone else sayz it, i was wrong and I need to get off Q's ****. There, I beat everyone to it. Props to Grant Hill, Im glad to see him healthy. I liked him when he was with Detroit and I always hoped hed get through his injuries and have a good endin to his career. BAD 4th quarter effort not just by Q, but by the whole team. Dissapointing.

    If i have to watch Zack Randolph do another triple jab step into a missed jumper i may vomit. Who was the person who posted a youtube video of Randolph passing the ball? Because i haven't seen it I think Breen and Clyde said it best... Randolph brings alot of pluses but he messes with the growth of Curry and Lee.


    And Marbury got taken out because the last posession of the 3rd quarter he just put hi head down drove to hoop and got his shot blocked instead of kicking out the ball to two wide open players.

    Yet Again We See How Foolish Isiah Can Be As A Coach, Knicks Down By One And 33 Seconds Into The Game He Takes Steph And Eddy Out The Game For Lee And Jones. If That Strategy Worked One Night, That Don't Mean It Always Going To Work. And We Let A Guy Like Grant Hill Beat Us. I Sometimes Don't Get Isiah, He Knows Eddy Was The Guy With The Hot Hands And He Kept Jamal Almost The Whole Game And Jamal Was Off Tonight. Nate Didn't Play And I Wonder Why? He Sometimes Seems As If He Never Coached In His Life. Isiah Need To Know Who And When To Substitute. I Don't Blame Nobody But Isiah For This Lose.

    Isiah has no sense of direction, as a coach and especially as a GM. Giving him more chances will only mean more loses in the history of the New York Knicks

    Frazier pretty much said it.

    The Curry & Randolph experiment is failing. Not as disastrous as the Francis & Marbury but not good none the less.


    We played average...we're a 92 PPG team that gives up over a century a game..we lost by ten, average game for a ****ty team put together by Isiah Thomas.

    the worst part about this loss is that its just another opportunity for jim rome and all the other espn *******s to talk ****. Theyre guna be like "oh they suck they got blown outta the building against phoenix, they didnt even stand a chance" when we had the lead in the 3rd qtr various times, and were down by 1 heading into the 4th.
