    Default Possibly the Hardest Week

    Well what are your thoughts on next week.
    We play the hardest teams, The Lakers, Cavs, and Celtics
    I think we could get a win against the Lakers because of our close game earlier in the season when we nearly beat them and the Cavs because of their injury report. The Celtics we can win only if they lose a game before they play us.
    What do you guys think about next week.

    I'm crossing my fingers that we don't go ofor.

    Especially since we're on the roll of a lifetime. This is the Knicks best shot for the league to take notice. Wins over the top teams in the East and West.

    True test coming up.

    I dont want to read one negative line about Nate this, or Lee that, or whatup with Chandler, when all four teams (Lakers, Cavs, Celtics, and Blazers) will have two players assigned to all 3 Knick players "Nate, Lee, and Chandler" to keep them busy on both sides of the court.....they are the "Knicks best Winning Players".
    I'm not taking anything away from Duhon b/c his job is to get the ball to the hustling energy teammates that "Make it Happen" and he has been doing a well job at that on a team that does not have any top scorers but....we do have 3 great hustling energy players that will test the waters to open things up for other Knick teammates.
    Hint....they been doing this before coach Dantoni system.

    We should all expect a 4 game losing streak....if we get a WIN....be HAPPY! we have some top Role-Players that could step up their level of performance for a WIN...

    to be honeset I think we match up best against the Celtics, then Cavs


    I would say no shot against Lakers and Portland


    Celtics lack depth and their interior players aren't the stars of the team


    If we Could get KG in foul trouble or just limit him to a repectable night we have a chance to win with our 2nd unit

    Cavs are big but with West hurt they lack some depth as well, so if we can keep an uptempo and actually have the lead before Lebron goes nuts in the late in the 4th quarter we have a small chance.,


    but Lakers we proably won't score enough or stop the Bynum / Gasol combo

    and Portland's Aldridge / Oden combo will wear us out will they do the dirty work and bayless/roy/outlaw / ferdandez rack up pts

    Angry People don't underestimate our Knicks

    We beat the Lakers and Celtics while not having Gallinari and having other minor injuries to players...if we can beat those teams with injuries...imagine now with most of our team back.

    The Cavaliers are the tough one because Chandler is nto going to shut down Lebron James all game. Eventually Lebron is going to find a way to get in the inside and dunk on us 5 times. Mainly because our post defense sucks.

    We can beat the Celtics if we keep out Rondo and force them to shoot long shots.

    We beat the lakers last time because Nate has a fantastic game so expect D'Antoni to make him a crucial part in that game...maybe they just can't stop a guy that fast...Derek Fisher obviously can't.

    Paul this is the second time you said we beat the lakers so I need to clarify this. We played the lakers once and we came close (116-114) but we still have to beat them this season. That being said I do think we can beat all next 4 teams we face next week ( we can also lose to all 4 of them) so a 0-4 week will be the worst a 1-3 will take us back to earth (after the last 5-1 strech), 2-2 will be nice, a 3-1 week will be fantastic (establish ourself as real threats) and a 4-0 week will be unthinkable for many (except die hard knicks fans) and will guaratee a play off spot for us (specially if we beat indiana and 2 bad teams coming after that strech).

    My prediction 2-2 with us beating the lakers and portland ( I wish we beat the celtics again thou).

    2-2 would be a good week! Any way we can pull that off would be impressive!

    But truthfully 0-4 would not be too bad if we do @ the very least play hard and compete!

    Kinda thinking Lottery is a better Option for us then Playoffs!

    If we can play well and up the ante for some of our players maybe we can make a trade that can help get us more ping pong balls!

    any win against lakers, cavs, celtics would be good. Given how we've been playing / how we played lakers, beat celtics, i'd say we can def pull a win or two out....i wouldn't count on it or expect it, but i think we'll play well and def have a chance...this will be a nice gauge to see how we can compete when we're playn pretty well..

    The celtics will come out with a vengeance and Ray allen will make every three he takes. I Think we can be conpetitive with the lakers and maybe steal a win depending if q makes any threes and can play physical on Kobe. The only way we will beat the cavs is if the refs dont like lebron. Yesterdays cavs, magic game lebron was getting fouled like crazy and the refs were not calling it. If Chandler can play physical with lebron and get away with it we have a high chance of winning. Make pavlovic and varjoua beat us. Portland i have know idea about maybe we can win if fernandez and roy play bad.

    Nyk Logo All our Knick weak areas will be exploited

    Lets not get crazy here about any Knick WIN on any of the next 5 teams....all our Knick weak areas will be exploited so I hope President Walsh is at each game with note n pad.

    We will be playing the Pacers in Indiana where the Fans are ruthless, plus Dunleavy is back to sneak in his quiet 20 points a game (like Allan Houston used to do with Ewing or Spree) with Murphy, TJ Ford, and All-Star Granger.
    50-50 win for Knicks at Pacers....best part will be Lee vs Granger (performance) for who really deserve the reserve All-Star gig.

    Lakers have so much Pro-veteran depth....they have two starting units.
    Cavs got depth plus a 6.9 (Magic Johnson) guy called Lebron James.
    Celtics depth chart is so deep an oposition win gives out 100% confidence
    Blazers have a deep-deep depth chart of young athletic future ALL-Stars

    The Knicks have no depth chart....the Knicks do have young players performing at a high level for a $7M to $12M payday and other young players for an extension in the 2009 offseason.
    The Knicks having only two Guards in their rotation and only one Bigman.....expect our 5-1 in the last 6 games to turn into 0-5 in the next 5 games.

    There is nothing negative about the Knicks losing the next 5 games....there are more positives in how these top contender teams exploit our many weaknesses...

    I hope the knicks win 4 or 5 of the next games and help kiya close shop and stop bashing and being so negative about the knicks because of his dislike of Walsh and D'Angtoni.

    Good that you clarified that lakers game...we SHOULD have won that game then.

    ANyways what I meant was that we almost beat the Lakers and beat the Celtics so we have the potential to beat any team i the NBA if we have decent defense...keep out guys from driving to the hoop, and make our open shots.

    All we have to do is not choke with open shots and provide some decent defensive pressure...and we can beat anybody.

    So thats why I am not extremely worried about these games.

    And my point was that We play harder and better as a team, knowing that we are playing harder competition, the Knicks just play better against better teams and lose to teams that suck like the Thunder.
