Problem is we have no other options. Douglas isn't a PG (and he's a rookie), and N8 is only a scorer. We saw tonight what happens when you try to have N8 run the offense:
Knicks up 3 point, 90 seconds left, he runs down the court and jumps out of bounds and chucks a shot over the backboard, after 10 seconds!
NOt PG-ish right there if you ask me.
You can't ask N8 to run the point b/c he always tries to make the impossible pass.... He wont just play it safe (keep it simple).
NOt to mention, Duhon never hangs on the rim and gets called for a technical. That ONE point proved critical down the stretch, no?
Plays like that drive coaches crazy.
BUT, yes.... You can't have Duhon-Jeffries in your starting lineup. Combined they're lucky to get you 9 points. AND, on most nights.... N8 & Al do what they did tonight (10-30 shooting; 2-12 from 3).
Knicks need a real PG more than anything.
