Isiah Needs To Realize That When The Game Is On Line, Crawford Is Not The One Who Needs The Ball In His Hands, Steph Needs The Ball To Create A Player For Either Himself Or His Team Mates. The Isolation Play That The Draws At The End Of The Game Don't Always Work And He Needs To Realize That. And By The Way Good Job Stephon On Ben Gordon And Kirk Hinrich With Ur Solid Defense. Stephon Is By Far The Best Defender On The Team On A Man To Man Defense.
    He still isnt doin nearly what hes capable of on defense but hes still not doin bad. He'll pick it up soon I think, within the next week. Gordon and Hinrich didnt score as much towards the end of the game so the guards did their job when they had to but Hinrich played real good most of the game. I agree with you, the ball needs to be in his hands. He had 2 turnovers early in the game, I think in the 1st quarter and he didnt get anymore the rest of the game. Even Crawford only had 1 turnover and shot 10-21. Marbury finished with 18 points and 5 assists, Nate Robinson had 10 assists and 7 rebounds. Zach Randolph had a bad game but alot of players stepped up tonight and of course Marbury came up real big but I gotta give credit to Curry for his 4 blocks and 29 points.

    Solid win by the Knicks tonite with Marbury leading the way. His offensive play was obviously clutch but the key to the win was the defense he played on Ben Gordon, who usually kills the Knicks. Even the few shots Gordon hit Marbury was draped all over him. Kudos to Nate for actually passing the ball. I hope this is the start of him evolving into more of a playmaker. Nice job by Curry as well who was spotted actually blocking shots and hitting free throws during this game.

    Ultimately this win means nothing unless they follow it up with a win at home against the Rockets tomm night.

    These are the games that I envisioned the knicks having when the season started, but instead of Nate coming off the bench with the spark it was Collins.

    This game was just like the games the Knicks were having the second half of last season. Steph showing why he is the best player on the team, Crawford doing his thing and Curry son'ing lil dudes who try to guard him This was the chemistry that was being built last year b4 Q Lee Craw and evntually Marbury got hurt. And because of that, I thought the Knicks would have an above .500 season. What went wrong... who the **** knows. the lockdown defense they played in the 4th quarter should be the defense they play every ****in quarter. The running they did should be the running they do every ****ing game, feeding the ball down to Eddy when shorter less physical people are guarding him should be done at all times. Eddy getting 4 blocks, o at least challenging shots should be an every game thing. But its sad to say that **** just aint happening.

    Everyone who hates on Marbury should see that he is the spak that leads this team and there is a reason he should be captain. I've been critical of him this year because he wasn't playing up to his potential(second half of the season last year) but the fact of the matter is, when Marbury plays great, the Knicks play good and can win. Just the way it is

    It was a good all around effort, but the one thing that noone noticed was Zach's play. That's right Zach. The reason the chemistry was better was that Zach wasn't dominating the ball. WE don't need Zach to score 20. We need Zach to get 10-12 rebounds, play some defense, and score when Curry is out or when he just happnes to have a great look.

    This team plays better when Robinson is on the court and he's having a good shooting night because that's what we need - OUTSIDE SHOOTING. It's a shame he isn't a little more consistent, though he has been better lately. I wonder if he was hurting for longer than we think. I like the team when there are 3 guards on the court.

    That was Curry's 3rd very good game out of 4. 29 - 8 - 4. This was one of his best efforts. His game clearly goes up a lot when Zach takes a minor role.

    Marbury played some very good ball tonight.

    Finally a decent win.

    Isiah has to notice the team plays better with Zach on the bench or deferring to other players. Unfortunately, Isiah the coach is trying to prove that Isiah the GM made a good move. If Herb Williams were coaching, I bet Zach would be benched and maybe he would start Randolph Morris to compliment Curry.

    I thought that Eddy was going to mess up on that last play... Marbs that three was for your pops! Good shot.

    No Luol Deng... so. but we did end the loosing streak. Knicks Rockets today...

    Same thing you guys are saying about Zach is how Steph played last night also. Steph played like a true PG last night. He played tough D and didn't let Kirk and Gordon go crazy. He got to the line in the first half to help keep us in the game. Steph made sure Eddy was the #1 scoring option and Eddy followed up by playing a great game at both ends of the court. Finally Steph let the other guards Craw and Nate Robb touch the ball and kept them in the game. That's what a team leader is supposed to do, get the other guys involved. If the Knicks played together like that every night there would be no problems. There is no doubt there is more talent on the team then the record shows. I really liked the 3 guard line-up with Steph, Nate, and Craw on the floor at the same time. Those boys really ran the floor and actually shared the ball on the offensive end. That looks like a good starting line-up to me because Q just seems to be overweight and slow.

    Its great to see we gettin more replies on here, that was my goal. When I first started I think the game threads were gettin around 40 to 50 replies, some of them even less. Even though we got alotta the same people on here we doin alot better then the past couple of months despite a losing record.
