    Jordan Hill is raw and needs to polish his game. He needs work on decision making. Seriously, taking seven shots in under seven minutes is a pretty good sign that you're trying to do way too much. He's talented, though, and he also grabbed three boards and an offensive rebound in that six minutes so he'll be alright eventually.

    Jared Jeffries - 5 offensive rebounds? I like it. Hopefully Amare now thinks "hey, these guys kicked my ass...man, they're good! Let's go there!"

    In my dreams, maybe.

    I agree, doesn't even play Darko in garbage time. I don't get D'antoni but Darko must be pissed, yeah he's not a SSOL type of player but he's still got 2 good knees unlike that waste of a roster space Eddie Curry.

    Gotta enjoy a glorious win like tonight. Let's hope this galvanizes D'Ant/Walsh into really allowing Gallo to flex his skills.

    Nate needs to be showcased, put up the "numbers", and traded, ASAP. And it is beyond obvious that Hughes and Douglas need to be our big players at guard, but use Nate strategically so we can dump him with, perhaps, Jeffries or Curry.

    I don't get not playing Darko like this, though, unless they have already decided that they have 0 interest in him this season or in the future. In which, case, aight.

    We really can't look at this season like any other (normal smh) franchise. All I care about it trading Curry and Jeffries -- by way of Nate, Harrington, Lee...so be it.

    Allow Gallo to develop and show himself, as well as Douglas. Set us up to have a legit shot at 2 FA's, and the chance that Walsh can work some magic for Flynn, Rubio (Devin Harris?).

    Best line up that would work

    Douglas
    Hughes
    Gallinari
    Lee
    Hill

    6th man
    Harrington

    Back up guard - Duhon
    Back up forward - Chandler
    Back up center - Darko

    Just finished watching the game on Video on demand.

    Wow, was I really watching the New York Knicks?

    They were passing the ball, defending well and finidng the open man. Even Duhon managed to score a couple of lay-ups. Okay, the Suns were having an off day but I prefer to be positive about our team. After all you can only play against the team that are put in front of you.

    Gallo was amazing. He has been quiet the past few games but was showing all his skills. the fact that his rebounding numbers are improving surely proves that he has regained his confidence about his weakened back.

    I think that D`Antoini has no interest in playing Darko. Otherwise why not give him some minutes during the fourth quarter.

    I`d like to think that Duhon was finally unmasked and that D`Antoni will finally take off his rose tinted spectacles but I think that Duhon will simply continue to play because the coach seems to love him.

    Well done Knicks. Something to finally cheer about.

    GALLO!!!!!!!!!

    HOLY ****ING **** YESS!!! that was a dominant performance by GALLO and Hughes! We played DEFENSE on the most offensive power house in the league. First team in nearly 20 games to hold them under 100 pts. Are you KIDDING ME??? THESE KIDS COULD PLAY DEFENSE THIS WHOLE TIME??????

    Ball movement, good decisions and the guys coming out and playing aggressively, attacking the basket, hustling for offensive boards, executing SSOL offense and overall just playing with an INTENSITY and desire that was non-existent for nearly 20 games.

    Great night to be a knicks fan! lets hope they can build some momentum off of this. They have to beleive they can play ball with the best of ;'em after ****ting all over the suns last night.

    I LOVED what Clyde said at the end of the 3rd "WHO ARE THESE GUYS!?!?!?"

    Best we've seen the knicks play in YEARS!

    Now if we can get some sort of consistency....

    Like D'ant's comments after the game, when he said he didn't know what to do the last 8 minutes: who to put in, when to sub. Not used to playing ahead like that! Classic.

    I think Darko didn't play out of respect for him.

    Seriously.

    After being known as the "human victory cigar" for most of your career, it'd be a little insulting to play him simply because we were up big.
