wow...Heat are shooting 62% from the field.
We might as well walk off the court and let the Heat practice their shooting.
I'm not happy...rather embarrassed for our home team.
When Chandler drives he can score but he should not take the 3s.
And fkin JJ shoud not have the most minutes (25) on the team. I know is showcase but comon the guy is worthless. Even J Hill could give us 2 points and 3 rebounds in 25 min. Shut Darko has double that in 9 min.
Duhon should start every game and upon his first subsitution he should never return.
I don't think I will stand this crap all season long, it's perhaps the most annoying team to watch.
Another mediocre shooting/defensive performance by the Knicks, another 40 3pt attempts...credit to D'Antoni, the only coach on earth that doesn't understand that to win games, you need to play defense.
On the bright side, Toronto beat the Cavs. Cavs are 0-2. The more they lose, the greater chance Lebron comes here.
I'm jealous of Toronto. They have a good team this year. Could we just switch rosters? I don't think David Stern would mind.
Getting blown out in our first game of the season cant be all that bad.....but showing signs of going from a 32 win team to a 22 win team is bad.
However, Boston is blowing-out Charllote 76 to 50, and the Spurs are blowingout New Orleans 82 to 61.
The Knicks being beat 92 to 62 at the start of the 4th qtr. could just be first game jitters of one year rental players.
I am not crazy about Dantoni's favoritism.....Jefferies & Harrington playingtime could have given rookie Jordan Hill a chance to apply his defensive abilities for 4 to 6 fouls.....Jermain O'Neal is looking like a superstar in this game.
New Game Plan.
1) Give ball to Gallo
2) He shoots a 3
Well.. Not THE worst D in the league at the moment as both the Pacers and 76ers leaked 120.
That's all I got at this point.
Well, I'm seeing one GLARING problem defensively.
Lee and Harrington. With these two guys as our front court, we're in for a world of hurt. They were in when the huge run happened, and were a big part of it. O'Neal had a bunch of easy buckets because they weren't communicating and were simply watching. Two guys in the area, but neither guarding him.
Maybe we should try a zone defense...
And there were positives from this game.
We can see that Gallo can shoot himself out of a slump into a high fg%, and that when Chandler grows testicles and drives he gets better shots midrange because they back off him, he draws fouls, and he can get some layups/dunks.
Darko is also the ****. Guy had his hand on a bunch of balls and played great D....Until Nate took out his legs.
Toney Douglas looked good when he got that last 2 minutes of playtime.
Jordan Hill looked lost in his 2 mins, took a terrible shot.
Hughes should have played. We needed his man D on Chalmers.
wtf. Toney Douglas should start no joke... Crazy and 1, and great control of the ball and actually plays with some spunk.
