    i like coach D's general coaching but his subbing is so bad sometimes he just stands there yelling at the refs instead of doing something. we had a LOT of calls in our favour away from home we should not even be getting those calls so don't know what he's whining about... sigh game over.

    Lee has 20 points at the half; so, of course, we don't pass him the ball in the 2nd half.

    Duhon just terrible tonight. Bender gave us nothing. Jeffries takes 10 shots.

    I guess Danillo's back is sore? Why else is he on the bench?

    A bad loss. This is where Harrington's abssende cost NY.

    A shame really.... Gallo-Lee-Chandler had like 40 first half points.... Only like 10 second half points though.

    Tough loss. Especially since CHA was down and game back to beat memphis.

    I have to remember.... whenever the Knicks sniff the 8th spot... It's losing time. Let's just hope this skid doesn't go on for 4-6 games.

    Man, this game you saw the difference between brilliant coaching my Adelman vs. Dantoni's crap coaching.

    Where the hell was Gallo in the fourth?

    Seriously, we are a point guard away from not losing games like these. I'm so sick of Duhon's ****ing **** game. He's basically a 2 guard that gets a lot of the ball. Jacking ****ed up 3s and choking transitional flow with apprehensive dribbling.

    Chandler played well, but when we needed that go to guy he disappears.

    So unassertive and even timid sometimes.

    Bottom line, we fell over when they pushed us and we never got back up. Houston didn't win, we lost.

    Knicks weren't going to beat HOU tonight- especially w/out Harrington. Again, every time NY gets a sniff of the 8th spot... The bottom falls out. I could see this becoming a 4 game losing streak (@OKC, @PHI, TOR are the next 3 games).

    Knicks will not get above .500 this season. It'll be lots of this madness.... They'll get within 3-5 games of .500, then quickly fall back to 8-10 under.

    We're basically playing 6 men every game (Bender, Landry got a few minutes tonight), and Duhon-Robinson-Jeffries are half of those 6. ERGO, w ehave a bipolar offense.

    Way to shoot and dish the ball out Christopher, SMFH....a prototypical game by DuDonkey, and it really shows just how bad his retardation retards the effectiveness and development of our players.

    Can we not at least see what a legit stretch of N8 and Douglas can do? Why is D'Antoni so damn tight and *****footed about just benching Duhon. Does he not realize that this is *the* easiest and most optimal type of season to do just that?

    Man, the playoffs would be nice, but it's not even like benching Duhon would hurt us in any significant way, while the upside of such a moe is enormous ...it's just heinous watching him bastardize the position.

    Serious blunder not doing what it took -- and what easily could have been done -- to get a legit PG this past OS. The over-estimation and belief of Duhon's ability to lead this team is astonishing, and it continues to this day.

    The best was when Duhon entered the game in the 4th... Knicks were struggling to score, we were down by 5 or something, Duhon has like 6 points.... what does he do? He quickly hoists up a 3 from the corner. Ice cold non-shooter chucks up a 3 and he bricks it... what a shocker!

    Duhon is terrible, but the scary thing is we have no other PG who can run the offense. Douglas is a score-first guard, and N8 is a turnover machine.

    Mafra, Duhon has been given ample, ample time to try to run this offense. He has failed miserably, and truly hurts not just our present but our very future.

    N8 has not been given nearly the time nor support and confidence that Duhon has had. N8 clearly deserves this now, and has deserved it all along, IMHO.

    Whether N8 ends up being superior to Duhon is besides the point; the juice is worth the squeeze in giving him a LEGIT, fair shake and seeing what happens. This is the perfect type of season to do just that.

    We can't go on like this, pretending it's OK to keep trotting out Duhon.

    Do you not watch these games? Knicks would lose 10 straight if Robinson was our PG for 40 minutes. Dude is one of NBA's worst turnover-per-minutes played guard in history of the game.

    Look at the 4th quarter tonight and last night.

    N8 is what he is... A scoring spark off the bench. BUT, how often does N8 domiNATE? Dude just takes 3 point shots b/c he's lazy. He constantly goes for the HR pass (and it's a bad decision more often than not)....

    How could N8 run the pick and roll? He always wants to shoot the 3? He wont pass (or wont make a good pass) and he'll rarely drive the ball.

    Duhon stinks. I can't wait for him to leave. BUt the Knicks do not have a PG on their roster other than Duhon. You can't have Robinson or Douglas run the offense... they don't want to. That's not there style.

    This was N8 tonight in the 4th: Bad pass, turnover, missed shot, missed shot, missed free throw, bad pass. Sure, he scored you 4-6 points.... But how many assists? ZERO!

    Knicks desperattely need to find a PG. I don't know how Alston slips by their radar, or how OKC traded for Eric Maynor....

    We can't live with Duhon as our PG anymore though.

    How many games has N8 been given the time and opportunity -- let alone confidence and experience -- that Duhon has to run this offense? Curious.

    You and a few others act like you know N8 so well; as if you know what he absolutely is, and more shocking, what he absolutely will be. Why?

    How old is N8? How old is Duhon? Who has more talent? Who has more ability to actually, potentially help this team? Curious.

    Could you think of a better season, a better spot, a better roster, to allow N8 the opportunity to start in place of Chris Duhon?

    I'm not saying N8 is a good PG even. I'm saying it doesn't matter if he is bad -- Duhon is bad enough ipso facto where the simple fact that N8 *could* very well become better...if not much better....in this type of season....makes it the right move to given him the legit chance that Duhon has been given and has failed at.
