That is what the thread is saying....coach Dantoni been favoring Duhon over Nate and some....and he started favoring Zach over Lee untill the complimentary player in Lee showed up in every game....Dantoni giving Duhon the "GREEN-LIGHT" privledge to call all the shots for 41 minutes a game....well last night was Nate's first time this season with that oportunity....and he showed a little of everything he could do to the average NBA team in the league if given the opportunity.
There is no HYPE in Duhon, Nate, Chandler, or Lee on this Knick-Team....and there should be no reason to compare their performance against each other....I just wish we had a better suit of teammates to put in a rotation with them....they could use a defensive coach to make Dantoni's offense ledgit to win the big games.
Nate and Chandler almost won us the game by themselves, Nate showed he's a keeper, but that was a tough/bad loss.....cant help but look at that dunk by Harrington *smh* but we lost as a team because whenever we were up we kept letting them back in the game
Defensive unison was the losing factor. Guys double teaming when they shouldn't, not calling out screens, sometimes not even guarding anyone!
Still don't see why you're acting like Nate kept our team in the game scoring wise...
He shot 13-28 from the field and 2-11 from downtown...
Thats an average shooting percentage overall and a terrible percentage from beyond 3. He deserves just as much criticism over taking dumb shots as Harrington, because both of those guys wouldn't know a good shot if it hit them in the dick.
Jeffries played better than he usually does.
I saw the whole 4th quarter. And OT. Harrington cost us. Simple
He went like 1-5 IN OT, missing 2 straight 3 pointers.. ON THE SAME POSSESION.
And that technical? Man, don get me started.
This guy has horrible shot selection. Sum mo BS.
Nate took 28 shots and recorded 33 points....anything under 28 points mean he had a bad shooting night. Iverson, Kobe, and Pierce will fake a shot to get their defender in the air so they could jump into him for the foul....so what they missed the shot they are going to the line for 2 points.
Wilson Chandler is in his second season in the NBA....last season this time Chandler was DNP every game from the start of the season....Chandler worked out hard with Nate Robinson the last two offseasons....so his trust and jellin with Nate gets him 16 or more points a game.
Duhon never looks for a moving Chandler in his offense so any points Chander gets it's considered hustle points.
Nate and Chandler like to run.....while Duhon, Lee, and Harrington likes the pace of a halfcourt game.
I forgot to post in this thread, but i wanted to comment on Nates 33 points, 15 assits, 9 rebounds, and 4 or 5 steals.
Cant believe he just missed the triple double, that sucks. He'll get one at some point.
