Well, the two so-call Knick Franchise players "Marbury & Curry" did not play against the Nets, and the Knicks finally WON a road game.
This Knicks first Road WIN had nothing to do with the Missing of Marbury & Curry, it was because the Nets Coach, Floor Leader, Franchise Player, and best PG in the NBA was missing in action "Jason Kidd".
Plus the Nets played reckless ball all 48 minutes of the game.
Knick-Fans dont get happy over Jamal Crawford Performance in the Nets game. Crawford is still not as good as the average Guard in the NBA, this was one of those games that Crawford gives us every 20 games of the season when the next team have no leadership in the Backcourt.
It would have been a different story and a Knick Loss if either PG-Kidd or PG-Armstrong had played for the Nets.
When was the last time either of us seen Crawford take 14 shots from the Foul line in one game? 2, 3, or 4 seasons ago.
Crawford shot 7-17 from the FG, 3-8 on 3-pointers, and a season high 7 assists, and only 2 fouls in 45 minutes of playingtime. Which means if the Nets SG-Carter had another Guard beside him with the Green Light to score they would have tourched Crawford.
What was Q.Richardson doing for 40 minutes of the game? Nothing! SF-Richard Jefferson 31 points, SF-Mark Allen 13 points, and SF-Nachbar 16 points. We need Q.Richardson off this team, and far away from Knick Players.
Fred Jones took advantage of being a Starter and defended the passing lane so well that he put the "W" in this Knick Road WIN.
What's up with Isiah Thomas in just giving Nate Robinson only 6 minutes to score 7 points in this Nets game with a Nets team who had a PG (Gill) that Nate could have gotten 30 points in just 25 minutes. Crawford, Jones, and Q.Richardson did not have to play 40 or more minutes in this Nets game for the Knicks to WIN.
This game showed that Isiah Thomas should not be the Head Coach of this Knick Team, giving the bench-players only 31 minutes for 11 points, when all the offensive plays throughout the game were designed for just Zach & Crawford "One on One" talent (Nate Robinson made another mistake by scoring again, so his benching will continue.).
This has been the main reason Isiah Thomas coaching of 15 Knick players has been very POOR at getting team chemistry from the Knick roster, when a scouting report on the Nets had to show they were at the end of a Back to Back game where they struggled for the WIN over a Lebronless Cavs team lastnight with the BIG Help of Jason Kidd whom did not showup for this Knick game.
Isiah Thomas gave 3 halfcourt players on the Knicks 40 and more minutes against a Nets team that played an uptempo fast pace game the previous night inwhich aghausted their Franchise PG-Leader to the point where he could not even show up tonight and play vs Knicks.
Isiah Thomas coaching rotation was helping the Nets stay in the game for the final minutes of the fourth quarter.
Knick-Fans should know that if the Nets PG-Kidd or PG-Armstrong would have played for the Nets, that Isiah coaching & Rotation would have cost the Knicks this game in the 4th quarter by depending on 40 minutes of halfcourt offense from Zach, Q.Rich, and Crawford.
Lord knows we need a brighter Head Coach in New York...
