    This is how the offense should play, get to the line and move the ball. Defense needs a little more work and more communication but all and all, great game.

    Shooters have their ups and downs and now he's up. I said it in the beginning he will find his shot. He's learning to be more aggressive and is getting to the line. This is for sure a game plan for Gallo, "get to the line".

    Another person who is finding his shot back is Douglas.

    Omfg listen I've never seen a clipper game and was this pumped this is rediculous.

    Regarding Blake, if he doesn't get hurt,especially the way he plays, he will be A 30-12-5 guy. I honestly can say if he didt get hurt last year he would have done these things last year because I saw their preseason games he is just a beast. I've never seen anyone like him at that size it's lik Ronny turiafs hustle and heart, lebron's athleticism, amare's size, and from what I've been seeing on some of his post moves and shots with his foot quickness he can have some hakeem type moves(that spin and reverse on amare). One last thing he is only what 22 years old! Ihope he doesn't re-up wit lac if he ever becomes a fa imagine that in the garden!

    ...now onto the team lol. Great game by stat,felt, and gallo. Hopefully they keep this up.but then again the last 3games was against the kings,warriors, and clips, but they can use this for a stepping stone to a playoff berth.

    Gallo explodes for 17 in the 4th. Back-2-back games where he lights it up in the final quarter. Good job.

    Good things happen when you hit easy shots, get to the free throw line, and get into a rhythm. THEN, when you pull up from downtown you have a greater chance to his those long range bombs.... b/c you are feelin' it!

    STAT leads by example again. 39 & 11.

    25 points off the bench.

    Knicks need either Gallo or Chandler to step up and be that 3rd scoring threat, especially when the 4th Quarter arrives.

    FIRST TIME EVER KNICKS WIN 3 GAMES IN CALIFORNIA DURING THE SAME ROAD TRIP!

    Another rampage for Gallo. 13/13 from line. 7/11. 30+ points. Solid D, steals, some dishing and boarding,

    And you can't put a price on having the confidence and ability to take over games, finish games off....

    If we can snag a M. Gasol this offseason we are mint. With OR without Melo!!!

    A legit bigman 5 with defense and offensive production. Alongside STAT and Gallo. L.E.T.H.A.L.

    Felton is Felton. Btw, how come his .480+ shooting and like .390 3pt %.....and 7+ assists is going so under the radar..

    We may have found a 17-7-5 with speed and solid D and solid range, slowly finding his way into D'ant's style.

    We be looking like a legit team. With cap and assets.

    If Melo could play the 2, that'd be unreal. But if he can't, we may want to truly hang tight for a SG to power move into. Or if Melo is just a FA, which would be too much to resist for Walsh no matter his position and the clash with Gallo.

    I really want to believe in this team, all considered I still think the jury is out on what type of season we will have. While I am happy that our team had a positive road trip 3-1, The teams we beat were crappy and missing key pieces. This smells a lot like those wins against Chicago and Washington.

    Gallo: I'm giving him a whole 2 paragraphs here because I have been impressed with his play of late. He has cut down his errors include forced shots and settling for 3's. While Gallo has been hitting 3's at a reasonable pace, he will become a consistent third option if he can get to the line and into the paint the way he has in these last 3 games.

    Gallo seems to have settled down a bit and between STAT, Gallo and Felton we are closing out teams in the fourth. Forget his 30 points, 17 in the fourth is by far the most promising stat of this game. Gallo has been delivering points at critical times in the game: Ending runs, delivering dagger 3's, getting to and being automatic at the line. The question that remains is can he play like this against the teams that matter.

    While these victories allows fans to take a sigh of relief, I still think they haven't proven much. The Knicks got some comfortable wins against 3 College Teams, you have to expect that. Knicks still got a laundry list of things to improve.

    1. Defense - The Knicks have been playing decent defense in spurts. Other times you see guys like Eric Gordon get a wide open lane to the hole that ends in an uncontested dunk. That speaks more to team defense as individual defense just maybe a strong suit on this team. If the Knicks can eliminate mental lapses and mis-communications holding teams to 100 or less and winning comfortably at around 107-110. Being so reliant on our offense is a risky preposition, (don't expect 40 and 30 from STAT and Gallo every night.)

    2. Dominating at the Garden - is what the visitors doing this season Knicks are 1-4 at home and if they expect to make the playoffs they gotta hold serve at home. A win against the Bobcats (5-8) is key.

    3. Remember how you are winning: Knicks need to continue to move the ball, keep 3 point shooting down and playing good defense.

    Side note: If Anthony "Potential" Randolph doesn't play a single minute for the rest of the season will anyone care?

    While it's obvious the Knicks have been padding the win column with "easy" prey.... TOR, WASH, LAC, SAC.... Teams like that. STILL, Knicks aren't the type of team that should assume any game is a gimme... SO...

    Let's just say.... in order for the Knicks to win.... They need that 3rd scoring option to emerge ESPECIALLY in the 4th quarter. Douglas did it twice, and now Gallo has done it 3 times.

    STAT-FELTON is not enough to carry the load down the stretch of games.

    Basically, in order to win, Gallo/Douglas/Chandler... One of these 3 have to be there to get baskets when the game is winding down. Do that and we win.

    Let's go 7-3 in the next 10 and really get back on track.

    6-8 now.... Go 7-3 the next 10 games and get to 13-11. The schedule gets hard then, but we should have confidence (after going on a 13-3 run).

    First things first. Blake Griffin is a Beast. Secondly, why does it look like we have so few set plays, and why so few pick and rolls. Looks like even against the weakest defense in the league, we labor to set plays. This must change

    Yeah or he could debut with 20 and 14 (less than a month ago) then have a 44p 15r 7a game less than a month into his career. The dude is boss, so exciting to watch in this game.

    Really excited the knicks are on a 3 game streak and hope they can take it through to the bobcats game and get it done there too. My boy gallo is killing right now

    Nyk Logo Great GameTo Watch

    Very cool game thread. This was one of the best games I've watched in a long time. Blake Griffin is for real, but Amar'e gave better than he took, since we won.

    Still the Knicks' defense sucked butt-wind. How many times do you let opponents skate through the defense with a free path to the rim. Crazy.

    But it was fun.

    Default another great win over a sh*tty team!

    once again, Knicks looking great against sh*tty team.
    2 games in a row one opponent scores over 40+.
    another game in which Knicks give up 110+ points.
    aside from continued crappy defense, a hallmark of any 'Antoni team,
    Knicks continue to score more, which is the way mustachecoach wins.

    can Gallipini continue excellent play, going to line more than he shoots 3's?
    can Feltip continue the driving dishing swishing teardrop excellence?
    can STUD continue domination?
    can Mrs. Fields continue to fold laundry?

    I assume the answer is yes and no, what I like is the fact that Knicks are
    getting to the free throw line more than they're shooting 3's.

    Keys:
    43-51 FTA - amazing!
    11-24 from 3 - great!
    22 dimes to 11 TOs - excellent!

    Felton +18 +/- (20 pts, 7 dimes, 7 steals - awesomeness)
    Laundry +13 +/- (slowly becoming my favorite Knick)
    Gallipini +12 +/- (another fantastic clutch game, bravisimo!)
    Moscow +8 +/- (one poor defensive play, good presence)
    and
    Tony Chill -8 +/- (wha happen there? clutch 3's...!)

    Skywalker not doing much, I'd rather see Randolph get some minutes rather than stew in the D'oghouse.
    the poor boys confidence is wilting each DNP! sadface!

    Blake Griffin is a behemoth, happy to see STUD school him with sheer w'illpower.

    good game all around by the big 3, STUD, Feltip and Gallipini, each with 40+ minutes.
    will they last the season with short rotay? only time will tellyo!

    false, Gallo's shooting is only good if he drives to the basket so defenders dont know to play him tight or not, then Gallo's shooting is better

    Co-sign. Recently though it's like a switch flipped in Gallo's mind realizing he could take the ball to the hoop once in a while. Hopefully he stays doing that.
