    Game Thread Mavs vs Knicks 1/8/09 7:30 pm

    New York Knicks (12-20)

    VS
    Dallas Mavericks (21-13)
    I'll be your host today, Jpz17

    And now, please welcome your New York Knickssssssss


    The Knicks will be taking on the Mavs









    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] haven't played too well during a soft part of their schedule. A home matchup against the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] might help them get back on track.
    The Mavs look for their ninth consecutive victory over the Knicks in Dallas on Thursday night when the teams conclude their season series.Dallas (21-13) is playing the last of six straight games against teams with records under .500, and while the Mavs are 4-1 thus far in that stretch, the last four performances have been less than desirable.They trailed by double digits in the second half of wins over Minnesota and Philadelphia last week before losing by 20 points Sunday at last-place Memphis, but they rallied to beat the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 107-102 at home on Tuesday after taking an 18-point lead in the first half.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]'s blocked shot and go-ahead jumper in the final minute helped Dallas win for the 11th time in its last 13 home games."Terrible. We had a good lead and we let up," said Nowitzki, who had 34 points. "They got whatever they wanted offensively. We couldn't get any stops."New York (13-20) felt the same way in its first game against Dallas this season. The Knicks allowed the Mavs to go on a 19-2 run over the final 7:26 of their meeting at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 16 before losing 124-114 in overtime.Nowitzki scored seven of his 39 points in the extra session and grabbed 15 rebounds, raising his career averages against the Knicks to 25.3 points and 9.0 boards.On Tuesday, Dallas needed a game-ending 11-1 run and went ahead to stay on Nowitzki's high-arching 11-footer with 37 seconds remaining."We're going to have to be a lot better on Thursday because New York is an improving team and they put a lot of pressure on you with their transition game and the 3," coach Rick Carlisle said. "We're going to have to be better on Thursday."New York opened a four-game road trip against Western Conference foes with a 107-99 loss to lowly Oklahoma City on Tuesday, two days after beating defending world champion Boston 100-88.The Knicks, who lead the NBA with 29.3 attempts from 3-point range per game, took 34 shots from beyond the arc against the Thunder because they fell behind by 23 points in the second half.New York hit 11 of those 3-point attempts and shot 39.8 from the field overall in falling to 5-12 away from home."We dug ourselves a hole and tried to climb our way out of it and just came up short," said forward [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who scored a team-high 21 points and went 4-for-6 from 3-point range. "No disrespect to those guys, but we were supposed to win this game."Harrington is averaging 23.5 points and shooting 51.9 percent (14-for-27) from beyond the arc over his past four games. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] hasn't had similar success for the Knicks over that span, making 9.5 percent of his 3-point attempts (2-for-21).New York was trying to post consecutive victories for just the second time since mid-November."It's a learning process, learning how to win two, four or 10 games in a row," first-year coach Mike D'Antoni said. "It's having that mentality that nothing else matters for the next two hours."The Knicks have lost 13 of 14 to the Mavs. They've dropped eight straight in Dallas since a 100-93 victory on Dec. 16, 1999. -espn.com
    Dallas is a 81% favorite

    I like The Game Thread JP even on short notice.

    Why is Q-Rich starting over Harrington still? Look I know he is an ol Dantoni favorite but enough is enough. Richardson has looke nice in the post at times, but we dont go to that enough. Slide Wilson to the 2 and start Al at the 3 so we can start getting off to better starts and not playing catch up.

    Oh yeah... Go Knicks, Die Mavs!

    If Nate plays another Crawford-esque game, I'll be starting the Trade Robinson chants.

    No, no games on tnt tonight. Maybe it's because of Barkley's DUI, but probably just because no good games are on tonight.

    Harrington provides offense and energy off the bench. Plus, it provides a more defensive starting lineup. Wilson isn't a good enough ball handler or passer to be a 2.

    But he's right here in his little buddy Nate. They're the same player, just in a different gift wrapped package.


    Al Harrington played like **** tonight as well.

    Positive thing about tonight's game?

    Didn't see much of Q. Thank you for listening to our opinions Mike.

    the thing i hate about al is that he got the ability to take any PF off the dribble but he settles alot..his inside game is very good and he can score wit both hands....but im pretty sure in a game like dis in the 4th quarter, crawford would have won us that game

    Yea. Harrington's biggest problem is the 3 ball. He takes way too many when it isn't his forte. He can take those guys off the dribble. You're totally right. He just needs to realize that the best shot is the shot you take, and the best shot for him is posting and toasting on whoever is guarding him, because usually its a guy hes much faster than and can shake off him.

    Not as much as Crawford would of lost the game for us.


    All of Jamal's clutch shots are tainted, because he has had so many moments of failure and losing; hitting 4-5 clutch shots doesn't make up for HUNDREDS of loses Crawford has been the main culprit of.

    Long live the worst defender and decision maker in the NBA.
