New York Knicks (8-17) vs. LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS(11-13) Mon. 12/18/2009 at 8.00pm ET at MSG
I'm not going to say nothing about this game since I'm disgusted with our players and coaches decisions. So will be a preview from ESPN.

That's about all for this game and hope for the best.
Watching the rest of the bozos chuck up 3s is getting downright absurd, however. Not that this game is even that egregious in this regard, but it's a mentality that is raping our team.
Dant benches N8? Dant can't do sht to change what the players do on the court? Bench their asses too and have them ride the bench if they don't learn to change and WILL themselves to change and actually learn how to play basketball the way Dant supposedly knows how to.
Great 3rd Q. 16 pt. deficit recovery was impressive. But it also shows how downright unwatchable this team would be without Gallo. And that if we put inept clowns wearing Knick jerseys like Duhon firmly on the bench we might have some real hope.
Gallo starting to show the slashing prowess he was known for, and his excellent bball IQ is readily apparent in addition to his obv 3pt skills.
