    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.
    Chandler comes on and gets his opportunity and he throws the ball away repeatedly.

    I'm a fan of Amar'e, but why is it he gets the last shot every time. Don't you think the other teams know this. Dantoni needs to mix things up. He also needs to pay attention to the real coaches in the league (Pop, Jackson, Rivers, Van Gundy etc) to see how they handle things

    Nothing against the Spurs. They are in the top 3 teams in the league IMO. But if we played this game smarter, i think it would be a super close game

    It IS a close game so far.

    Gotta feel for Chandler being forced in to an out of position mismatch with Blair. He's getting rag dolled. Hardly his fault - 40lbs differential.

    Everytime Dantoni "DISS" Wilson Chandler, I notice the change in Chandler performance by shooting 3-ball bricks all game, never driving, cutting, or moving without the ball.

    Damn! Amare have to stop letting all these old timers keep blocking his shot

    NYK's record clearly shows they are better off when Chandler starts.

    Not sure what happens if Gallo came off bench tonight, but we see what happened when he started.

    Gallo should not start, and especially not tonight. Why not make Spurs stop Chandler? Instead, coach did it for SA. Benching him threw him off his game... And it shows. Gallo has been brutal to watch. Major fail from coach.

    We dont have anyone to defend Blair.
    Blair has been the Spurs biggest weapon this season

    He rarely, if ever, throws a head-fake. Hence, he's been to the line once tonight. I'd like to see him spend a week with Hakeem Olajuwon and learn some shake, bake, fake offense.

    We really a legit #2 scoring option; or a 1b like Melo.

    Amare has been settling for such gay shots, starting ever since he let RuPaul hold him back at the end of the BOS game.

    He just isn't able to finish with his consistency in the dominant manner we know he more than capable of, throughout a game, particularly the end.

    Spurs strategy has changed with 8 minutes left in the game.... to score all the rest of their points in the paint on the Knicks

    Toney Douglas! For ****'s sake! I love the kid! Especially his D. But his offensive IQ is just horrendous.
