i was suprised we didn't foul but **** happens we gotta move past this now and head to the allstar break on a 2 game win streak cause when we come back we got a tough schedule ( Spurs, Raptors, Magic etc) lets get some momentum back
Time to move on....however....there is a strong note about this Knick at Portland game....our 9-Man Rotation showed one of the brightest performances this season in Portland.
After the 3 consecutive losses to the TOP-Teams in the league (Lakers, Cavs, Celtics) our Knicks went into the 31-19 Portland Blazers back yard with the attitude that they can beat this .500 team away....the Knicks did not lose much of a beat even with coach Dantoni experimenting with the starting lineup and throwing off his major rotation of players whom finished off the last eleven games in January 8-3....for a team which dont have a Super-Star, or star-leader, and need help in both their front and backcourt....they play like WINNERS!!!
Lets Go Knicks!
The reason that the Knicks lose these close games is because they don't have an all-star to close out these games for them as opposed to the other teams.
