    I was screaming for Antoni to take a time out with 10 seconds left.
    what kind of coach lets the game end without a set play or two? typical!

    I noticed the Gov was open on a few pick and rolls and TD/RF did not see him.

    Chandler... invisible.

    If not for Felton's amazing 3rd Q, we would not have been close.
    this is how the Antoni game plan operates, hit or miss, win or lose.

    I've been silent about the Gov, but 3 games into his resurgence, I think it's safe to say,
    the Knicks are better with him. I'd been saying he needs minutes on the court,
    but many KO posters are saying he is garbage and contributed to Knicks losing. WRONG.
    It is the short rotation that has been the undoing of this team, STAT and Felton are tired more than not,
    and they are no longer consistent. this has been a fear all along using 8-man rotate.

    Amazingly, Antoni used 10 men tonite, although Bill Walker only got a few minutes to miss 2 threes.

    It took injuries to get Mosgov off the bench, and now he's back in the rotation where he belongs,
    and is contributing. Last night his +/- was +8 compared to +/- of -8 for Turiaf, basically same amount of minutes.

    This is not the first time a player has gotten off the bench, out of the D'oghouse, due to injuries,
    and then surprises the coach with his positive contributions, leading him back into rotation at detriment of others.

    This is why Antoni sucks and is an epic failure as a coach. He does not recognize how to best
    utilize his players, until they smack him in the face with their obvious abilities.
    instead he expect x-amount players to conform to his system, and stay healthy all season without tiring. fail.

    Expand the rotation, utilize Randolph and Mosgov where the situation dictates,
    and stop this small-man, short rotation lameness.

    Done. Truth be told, he needs to go whether we win or lose.

    Couldn't agree more. We'll never be more than a entertaining team who wins games here and there with him. Even if we get to the playoffs I say we should fire him afterwards. Like what the Bulls did with Vinny Del Negro.

    Do you really believe that they have the talent to win now? If so, you are delusional.

    D'Antoni is one of the best coaches in the NBA - fans are greedy.

    When was the last time the Knicks finished over .500?

    You are clueless...

    When was the last time the Knicks finished over .500?

    Please grade each of the players on Knicks roster.

    Your basketball knowledge is minimal if you are comparing D'Antoni to Del Negro...

    Who did Coach K choose for his main assistant with USA Basketball? (Olympic team) He could have any coach in the country help him...

    What were your expectations for this team prior to the season starting?

    How many games did the Knicks win last year? How many this year?

    This is a project that if Walsh wasn't so brilliant we would still be stuck with a horrible team and in cap hell. NOBODY has a clue of what it took for him to accomplish this feat. Absolutely huge! However, D'Antoni is playing with the players Walsh gets him while Walsh lays the foundation. I think this is the FIRST year of that foundation... Fans are never happy and just don't understand the inner workings of an organization. Everyone should be thrilled that this team may make the playoffs.

    Wake up and smell reality. NO COACH could take this team any further then D'Antoni has this year. They play hard every-night and they are very undermanned - you just think these guys are good because your a Knicks fan.

    Ever realize when Amare leaves the game the team for the most part falls apart and can't score? Called getting some more talent - and trust me it's coming.

    D'Antoni is one of the best coaches in the NBA - fans are greedy.

    Looking forward to seeing your grade of the current Knicks talent. BTW, Randolph hypers - the guy has no clue how to play help D, and is lost on offense. He has talent, but it will be a few years before he gets his shot. That is why they are dangling him in trade talks.

    Your making some sense and I agree w a lot of the above, but posting the same thing to multiple posters is wack. It's evident there's a conflict of interest here.

    Mods can we do something about this guy??

    Game Thread Preparing For Game 2



    REVENGE!

    Put aside trade talks for a while comrades. We've gotta kick these upstarts right in their lolly bags tonight!


    It once looked like the New York Knicks would cruise to their first playoff berth in seven seasons. The teams behind them in the Eastern Conference seem to be catching up, with the Philadelphia 76ers leading the way.

    The 76ers will try to move even closer to the Knicks on Sunday in the finale of a home-and-home set at Madison Square Garden.

    New York (25-24) fell 100-98 at Philadelphia (23-26) on Friday for its ninth loss in 12 games. The Knicks shot 40.2 percent, missing 19 of 27 3-pointers.


    “We gotta definitely look ourselves in the mirror collectively and play much better,” center Amare Stoudemire(notes) said. “We’re slacking right now.”

    The 76ers, in contrast, are the team on the rise as winners of six of seven. Elton Brand(notes) dominated the interior with a season-high 33 points and 16 rebounds, topping 30 points for the first time in three seasons with Philadelphia.

    “Definitely a long time coming,” Brand said. “Important game, game that means something. It’s February. We’re in playoff position right now. It’s absolutely what I came for.”

    Philadelphia also won at New York 106-96 on Nov. 7. The 76ers have trailed heading into the fourth quarter before outscoring the Knicks by 11 in the final period in both meetings.

    The Knicks rallied from an early 14-point deficit to take an 82-73 lead Friday heading into the final 12 minutes before faltering.

    “Once we came back and took the lead, we let down,” Stoudemire said. “We’ve done that before and we’ve got to correct it.”

    Stoudemire has scored 21 points in each game against the Sixers, but missed 12 of 19 shots Friday. Danilo Gallinari(notes) averaged 28.0 points in his last two games, but is at 16.5 points on 34.8 percent in two matchups against Philadelphia, with Andre Iguodala(notes) defending him for long stretches.



    “When you make Amare shoot 20 times to get 20 points, you are going to be in pretty good shape,” Sixers coach Doug Collins said. “‘Dre did a magnificent job on Gallinari.”

    Philadelphia can move within one game of New York on Sunday. The Knicks are trying to avoid falling to .500 for the first time since Nov. 28.

    “You can’t put a lot of weight but at the same time, it’s a must win,” said point guard Raymond Felton(notes) about Sunday’s game. “We gotta know the importance of that. It’s a team that’s right behind us.”

    Iguodala had 18 points and a career-high 16 assists Friday for his sixth double-double along with no turnovers. He has 41 assists to six turnovers over his last five games.

    Felton was also terrific with 26 points and nine assists, although he did not register an assist in the 16-point fourth quarter for New York.

    “It always hurts to lose but I did think we played well,” coach Mike D’Antoni said. “But they played well also. It was a good game and we had our chances.”

    The Knicks are one of the best shot blocking teams in the NBA with 6.3 per game while the Sixers are one of the worst at 4.1. In the season series, however, New York has 11 blocks and Philadelphia 12.

    Yea I hope the team isn't too distracted today w these new scenarios popping off.

    Look for more help on Brand in this game, some timely doubles and more focus in general. He really worked us over... Can't happen again.

    We just need a full 48 min effort and we got these guys.

    True that. We can beat anyone if we play hard and execute. Staying up late for this one, 2:00am tip off.

    Default philly nilly

    hah ha ha, eat a dick!! classic loco ochos!!

    thank you rady, for banning the doodoo guru.

    looking forward to today's game, i have a feeling Knicks will bounce back super strong;
    latest trade talks will invigorate team (other than Weedson Chandler, who needs to come off the bowl,
    er bench with his invisibility cloak).
    expect STAT attack, Gallinero 3-deluxe, Feltip move/groove, dish/swish to afternoon delight.
    I predict the Gov shall reign supreme.

    just gotta watch out for rebound game from Jew Holyday, keep Elton John from going nuts in paint,
    and prevent Iggypop from posterizations.

    Knicks 106
    86'ers 97
