    Game Thread Knicks @ Spurs 1/21/11 8:00

    New York Knicks (22-19)



    @

    San Antonio Spurs (36-6)





    Date: January 21, 2011

    AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
    TV: ESPN, MSG

    It's been a season of streaks for the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who already own two double-digit stretches of consecutive victories.
    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] aren't so enamored with the streak they're building.
    After losing by 13 at Madison Square Garden earlier this month, the NBA-best Spurs look to extend their latest winning streak to eight while handing the visiting Knicks a fifth straight loss Friday night.
    There have been five winning streaks of at least 10 games in the league, and San Antonio (36-6) -- with a run of 12 from Nov. 1-24 and 10 from Dec. 3-22 -- owns two of them.
    The Spurs are well on their way to a third, wiping out an 11-point halftime deficit in the third quarter en route to a 104-95 win over Toronto on Wednesday.
    "In the second half we got back in the game because we played very, very good team defense," coach Gregg Popovich said. "Those stops generated offense, and that was the ballgame."
    San Antonio's streak began two weeks ago against Indiana as it bounced back from its only consecutive losses of the season.
    The first of those was the result of some dreadful defense Jan. 4 at MSG. The Knicks (22-19) shot 54.9 percent in a 128-115 victory, the most points San Antonio allowed in a regulation game since March 1993, and a performance that Popovich called "pathetic."
    The Spurs, however, haven't been lax defensively at home against New York in recent years. They've held the Knicks to 85.7 points per game in winning the last seven meetings at the AT&T Center.
    New York has allowed 114.3 points per game during its losing streak, and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] sounded fed up after the latest defeat. Houston jumped out to a 36-27 lead after one quarter Wednesday and didn't look back, outscoring the Knicks in each quarter of a 104-89 win.
    "We didn't bring the effort defensively, from the start," Stoudemire said. "They pretty much got what they wanted."
    Since Dec. 15, New York's only win in 10 games when allowing 100 points came against San Antonio. It's 5-1 when holding the opponent under the century mark in that span.
    One thing the Knicks will want to do Friday is defend the 3-point line. The Spurs are 24-1 when they make at least 37.5 percent of their long-range attempts, a percentage four of New York's last six opponents have exceeded.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has averaged 20.0 points during San Antonio's latest streak, but the Spurs' balance beyond Ginobili, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] keeps showing up.
    At least one San Antonio player outside of those top four scorers has scored 13 points or more in every game during the streak.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has done it in two of the last three contests. The second-year center had 18 points and 13 rebounds in a 101-89 win over Dallas last Friday, then had 22 points and 11 boards against Toronto.
    The Spurs are 7-0 when Blair has a double-double.
    "It can get scary because he can do so much," backup guard [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] said of Blair, who had 17 points and eight rebounds in 17 minutes at MSG earlier this month. "He's quick for his size, he's starting to get a nice little touch around the basket."
    New York will have to worry about containing Parker, but it'll also be anxious to get [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] back on track. Felton, who had 28 points in the win over the Spurs, has totaled 27 points and shot 23.8 percent in his last three games.

    i believe Wilson Chandler is not starting, as the Godfather allows his Godson to maintain the weakest link at SF.
    Antoni's small-man, short-rotation losing streak at the halfway point leads me to make this prediction,
    as much as I hate to say it:
    Spurms 114, Knicks 89.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    Even D'antoni said we need a #2. Also that if Stat gets shutdown it's over for us.

    I knew this game would be a sure L, so i decided to watch the game 7 against Indiana in the 1995 playoffs. Man... I still don't believe Patrick Ewing missed that layup.

    This is exactly why D'antoni is an idiot, and his man-crush on Gallo is killing this team. Chandler had his highest scoring game of the year (28 points) against SA. Spurs could not stop him from driving to the hoop all game. So, of course MD starts Gallo and has Chandler play off the bench. Gallo is his horrible spastic self and Chandler never gets into the flow.

    Knicks now 1-6 in last 7 games, and have trailed entire game in each loss. After loss @OKC Knicks will be close to falling below .500. Only a matter of time really.

    It look like coach Pop is going to take all his starters out of the game again with 4 minutes remaining in the game.... this time for a winning effort.
    Turiaf effort is holding the Knicks in this game.
    It's time for AR athletic defensive effort to get parole from Dantoni's dungeon

    It's such a shame that Ronny's arthritis forces him to rest so often. He's an excellent role player and is our one shining light at both ends tonight.

    Get out of your slump, Ray. Please.

    I'm sick of Douglas' shot selection. He's played well, but at least once in every game he throws up a wrongen. Use your head dude. We need you.
