duhon needs to tear his acl or sumthin....break his neck or sumthin
Even with horrible streakyness in his offense, I think I MUCH prefer Larry Hughes than Duhon. Larry at least gives us consistent 110% effort on D. Everytime a big man gets ready to back someone down, you can gaurentee larry will sneak up on him to go for that steal. You don't need to put him on for offense, since its not like duhon provides any offense on a consistent basis anyway. Bench Duhon for good, give douglas some play time with nate and larry.
And for gods sakes, start using Douglas, even for short periods of time.
No game thread for todays game but Knicks win!!
Coincedence how the Knicks do amazing in the fourth quarter without chris dudonkey? great game by gallo, nate and lee.
I thought Hill was good in the first half, but resorted back to his soft and passive ways in the second half.
Overall great win, and hopefully we'll see more of Chris Dudonkey rotting on the bench come clutch time
yeah man, where's the thread? ...guess this is back to back pissed-on thread...
We're at halfway point, great that we got win, thanks to N8 Gr8ness, once again taking over (twice in one game), where starters could not make it happen... I'm talking Poopon and Girafferies.
Duhound on bench again for more than 1/2 of game, yields Knick win...coincidence? 20 minutes, 4 TO's, 0 points... pathetic dog!
N8 is getting back in groove after 14 game benching with +14 (+/-), winning game with his spark, ample scoring, driving, dishing: 27 pts, 4 assists, and 1 Turnover(!) More N8, less Duhound, that is the solution.
Hell, I'd be happy to see N8 start at this point, until Poopon shows he's got SOMETHING to give... off the bench!
and why in the world is Duhon once again guarding a 6'10" G/F (Daye/Durant)...? the rookie ate him up! D'amn(toni) fool!
2nd Half of Season
N8 - Duhound - Hughes
Chandler - Douglas
Gallo - Hill
Harrington - Bender
DLEE - Jefferies
And still we wait for Douglas...
Another good game for under-rated Chandler (4 blocks were key).
DLEE, a little off due to foul trouble, was clutch with key 'bounds, and another 5 dimes. Add those dimes to his 11 points, that's contribution... All-star quality +12 (+/-)
Less Girafferies, More Hill. The Giraffe did make a decent showing in 4th quarter with offensive rebound power, a surprise jumper, and clutch foul throws...
Wonder if Duhon will ever average double digits in points in a year?
Assist are easy when you bring the ball down every play.
Play Robinson, Douglas, Hughes, Duhon is the Knicks problem, D'Ant is the real problem starting him 41 out of 41 games. Imagine if Hughes went 34 minutes without a single basket? Think he would start the next night.
Chris does. Wonder if Robinson did not score a point and had 5 turnovers, would he start, no, Chris does. Wonder if Tony scored 4 points over three games would he start. Chris does. 30 plus minutes 99% of the season.
Nate Robinson was awesome versus Pistons! Since his 41 points in January against the Hawks, Robinson has not been so agressive onto the basketball court... he just gave us a new victory.
Furthermore, i hope he would teach Kobe Bryant a good lesson on friday during the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] on Friday
Good win for us. Should of had 3 wins in the last 3 games however. This season is kind of schizo so far. I know we weren't expecting much coming into the season, But after flashes of brilliance from gallo, lee, harrington, etc. in games against good teams like PHX, POR, ATL, etc. Those games we drop against Detroit and Toronto hurt a lot more then they probably should.
We're flirting with the 8th spot but that is just a tease. Personally I would like to see more games like yesterdays where we get our rooks and young guys good minutes to develop NBA legs. Hill was impressive in limited minutes, I think the news of Curry's surgery has the team looking to develop Hill earlier then they had expected.
Still good win and it does seem like every 1 of 4 games Nate will just go off on a team. I wish he was more consistent.
We don't have a viable option at PG. It should be PG by committee, giving the player with the hot hand control of the rock.
