Smh how some of yall thought we had no shot..
While STAT didn't have the greatest game, you gotta figure that Gallo and TD and Felton don't get those good looks from behind the arc that they do without having STAT in the paint.
Blocked shots were once again a plus for a team that was 2nd to last in the league in blocked shots last year and worst in the league (by far) last year.
Douglas can ball - he isn't afraid to take the ball to the basket, he plays a great game in transition, and he's a good 3-pt shooter. What a game.
Great game by Felton - he facilitated, he took good shots, and he took advantage of the fact that he's fast as hell.
Gallo seems over the slump. I especially liked when he put the ball back in, showing his willingness to get in the paint down and dirty if necessary.
Good game by Turiaf - he hustled, played hard, and played good defense and blocked shots. I like that.
Wilson had a slightly colder night but still played good defense and provided some good hustle.
They shot well from the charity stripe tonight after having a simply horrendous game from the free throw line against the Blazers.
I like what this team is doing. ANY road win is a big deal for our team, let alone a road win against the Bulls, who always play well at the United Center. Of course there are things the team has to work on, but they're doing well all things considered.
Smh how some of yall thought we had no shot..
the improbable win, TD and gallo really pulled through for us on this one. noah was a tough matchup on amare

Great win tonight... I had to take a moment and thank Donnie and Mike for getting players who...no matter good or bad play... always competed... for so long our players use to just look at each other and roll their eyes.
...oh and Rose's dunk was just too nasty.
again we need to be patient Amar'e will be fine im not worried, he'll pull it together and when he does and Gallo's on his game we'll be a force i see it. the reason Gallo was able to get going was cause the Bulls were too worried with Amar'e early and cause Gallo was aggressive early and got his game going got his confidence back. this was a huge win, now we roll off a little steak
DaTPRiNCE...That EGYPTiAN Fella, #MeloMafia
We're 2-2. We could easily be 3-1 or even 4-0 had Gallo played well from the beginning. Still a lot of work to do but plenty to build on. If this team ever figures out the pick-and-roll with Amare and everyone is able to play well, we can compete with anybody. And if Randolph is ever able to figure his game out....watch out!!
I hate how some people change opinions game to game.
Omg he had a good game hes awesome and we're awesome.
Whoa he had a bad game. WTF we suck donkey balls.
Its a longgggg season. We got a while to go and need to see a lot more before we can judge anything. In the meantime it doesn't hurt to be optimistic or at least try to cheer your team. Why on earth do you watch this game if you just want to hate all the time? Theres a difference between objective criticism and blind hatred.
I love this win. it wasn;t the prettiest 2nd half but with amar'e being doubled on every single roll to the basket other players were forced to step up.
Gallo had a huge first half, but didn't seem to get the touches in the second half, mostly because tony d got hot and was draining from everywhere. still it was a break out game for both of these young players and if they can build on this we have a lot to look forward to this year.
Turiaf is a great GREAT piece of the puzzle, the guy just plays hard every single play, on both ends of the court. he's not the most polished offensive player, but i expect him to get better on this team.
Over all, this was a TEAM win. team defense, shots by all of our players, and the bench stepping up. we have depth and talent now. these are peices we can use to put together a strong season and maybe even turn in an inspired performance in the playoffs. really happy that the TEAM stepped up and took it to the bulls.
Amar'e needs to get going early on in games. and yes some moves in the block would be nice to see. team are defending the p'n'r so he needs to expand his game. he had some nice J's but i was hoping to see him make them pay around the rim.
The next game we lose, everybody will be calling for D'Antoni and Walsh to be fired and *insert name of player that played poorly that night* to be benched for the rest of the season or traded.
New York has some of the most knowledgable fans and some of the worst fans.
It's only been 4 games but I will say this, this team is way better than last years squad. Felton and Douglas are 10x better than Duhon and Nate. If Gallo can find his stroke for the rest of the season this is a playoff team.
Fair enough he's been doubled and tripled constantly since opening night on picks, post ups and dribble drives, but you'd think there'd be at least a dozen times when he's scored on the roll by now.
Is it the passer or the roller?
If that's aimed at me and my comments about Amar'e, then GTFO. STAT, IMO, is a big concern at an even bigger price.Whoa he had a bad game. WTF we suck donkey balls.
Sure, he opened the arc for our shooters tonight, but we're not gonna be hitting 70% of our 3s game by game.
We need him to play like $100M. End of f'ing story.
still very early ..... but i like that the team plays hard ..... and most suprising is the team defends ...... also great win coz game on national TV (dont have to take kidding from my buddys...we all remember the last time our team was on TNT ) ......like what im seeing GO KNICKS
These kids are up past their bedtime gettin mad
So we gonna act like Amare's not averaging over 6 turnovers a game?
The Knicks are my team but fairy tales are for kids
I really liked Felton's game tonight too, man. 20, 10, 5 and 2 picks as well as deflecting Rose's passes and playing enough D to keep him honest. His shots were falling, his passes on point....Great game from El Capitain.
Douglas was lights out too.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME WE GOT 50 POINTS OUT OF OUR BACKCOURT?
Good to see Gallo firing too. Hope he brings it tomorrow night.
