Lee said at the half that he's been working hard on his jumper and it showed tonight. Also said that he's working on his defense because he has to.
5 stars for honesty.
d'antoni sounded like a bitch when talking about Nate in the post game interview. Be a man about it. He looked like he was gonna cry. He should of said "**** you! I don't want to play him and that's it."

great win for us as we just keep coasting which is what i want us to keep on doing, were playing great and we held another opponent to under 100 we keep playing like this and well continue to move up the standing, were a half game outta the playoffs we keep this up well be comfortably in the playoffs too.....this is great were finally playing great against teams were supposed to lose too, and lately were holding our end by beating teams were supposed to beat, keep this up fellas Lee is a beast and the whole team is on the same page and were showing perseverance throughtout games, which for the most part of the decade has been missing
Ugly win for the knicks, but we'll take it. Defensive assignments are a key to this, particularly DLee's assignment and the help defense coming over. Team defense has been the reason we've been able to win. We know the guys can put up the points, it's been stopping the other guys that had been the problem. Good job on holding another team under 100.
It's good to see us taking these close games. It's a sign of maturity and discipline that is not typical for this team in past years. I think Harrington, Duhon and Lee have a lot to do with this attitude. I think that's why D'Antoni Let Duhon continue to run the offense. His leadership and attitude on and off the court has been absolutely professional. Despite the crys from us, the fans, to hang duhon on the bench. D'ant has seen something we didn't see. Here we are now, winning 7 of our last 10 games and you gotta ask yourself, is D'antoni a better coach then we thought?
I know D'ant was brought in to attract big name FA's in 2010. He's very well liked by players everywhere and is known as the players coach. But until this turn aroud I thought that was all there was to Walsh's decision to bring him in. He had "celebrity" status and personality but not much for team defense and skill assessment. But he's been proving over these last 10 games that heart, determination and perseverance are the foundations of the knicks and will be that way going forward. Players that perform, act professionally and help them win games will be rewarded. Others will be benched. I am really happy with the way things are going and as it turns out, I may have to eat my post about this team not being above .500 at seasons end... I would HAPPILY do that.
