I couldnt watch the game tonight. Looks like it was a good thing. Looking at the box score..ew. Lee's dbl dbl dtreaks over, 7 rbs. Somethings gotta change. Losing to the Bobcats?
Jay....Dantoni sold us out....I know Duhon has been in a little slump....but Dantoni went with Duhon over everyone else since the Preseason....why change when teammates Nate, Chandler, Lee, Harrington, Gallo, Jefferies, and Q.Rich has finally gethered a team chemistry confidence in Duhon being their 4th Qtr. leader.
The game was going good untill the 3rd Qtr. Knick lineup gave the Bobcats the game.
Very depressing 3rd quarter....where did Dantoni think he was going with Hughes playing the entire 3rd quarter with Duhon, Lee, Harrington, and Q.Richardson.
No Chandler or Gallo in the 3rd qtr.
With no Duhon in the 4th Qtr.....the Knicks Chandler, Gallo, Lee, Harrington, and Nate shooting over 50% from the FG in the 4th qtr. for a win....I hate to say it but Larry Hughes 41 minutes of playingtime compared to Duhon 25 minutes of playingtime had alot to do with why the Knicks LOSS to the Bobcats last night.
Larry Hughes should not be gettin playingtime before Duhon, Nate, Chandler, Harrington, Lee, Gallo, or even Jefferies in the 4th Qtr.....in other words putting Larry Hughes before those players for 4th Qtr. playingtime minutes mean "TANKIN-TANKIN-TANKIN"....Larry Hughes may have a Star contract but his performance on this team is average as best.
Dissapointing loss. Harrington was the man in the first half and then he disappears in the second. Nobody to take over in that second half. That 3rd quarter was brutal. We were shooting in the 20's. what was mind-bggling was that in the first the knicks were doing good when they took it to the hole, yet in the second half they were not driving as much and just taking long-range shots. WTF!?!?! That's bad coaching right there.
i think chandler though takes a lot of horrible off-the-dribble shots throughout the game that also disrupts the game - at this point he's really only good for open shots and fast-break opportunities - his creativity is **** and for a guy who looks built he has 0 explosiveness in a halfcourt setup - his minutes along with HUGHES' should also be trimmed and given to gallo
i was like when dantoni subbed gallo after drawing a foul on wallace, this guy actually tries to go to the basket, does a pretty good job and gets taken out??? why!!??? NO WAY chandler or hughes are better in any aspect
im convinced now the lineup should be robinson, chandler, gallo, harrington, lee, let duhon, hughes come off the bench who cares at this point
its obvious the lineup we've had isnt good enough
and like ive said before dantoni is a great playbook coach(truly cuz knicks get open pretty well) but im sick of this random rotation changes
clyde frazier should coach the team in the future cuz OBVIOUSLY dantoni isnt learning from his rotation mistakes
