With Garnett not playing, the Knicks should have seized the opportunity to score inside more than they did. I am really enjoying the progression of Wilson Chandler this season. I also liked what I saw from Nate Robinson when he was taking it to the hoop. If the rest of the team was driving the lane more and drawing fouls, they might have won this game.
If I were coach D'Antoni, I would emphasize drawing contact and putting up shot in practice. The Knicks can't live and die by the 3.
We do need another "Big" up front. We'll see if Jeffries will fill that void in a couple of weeks.
