we lost that game because we couldn't hit a wide open jump shot and could not stop Michael Beasley of all people. If they shoot badly instead of horrifically we win that game.
Only encouraging sign is seeing Gallo contribute even when his 3pt shot is off. He is starting to take the ball to the whole and if either finishing nicely or getting to the line.
Who else should the Knicks play outside of the 8 man rotation btw? Toney Douglas and Jordan Hill are obviously not ready to contribute or you could bet D'Antoni would be playing them. I guarantee he would rather have his guys that he drafted in there instead of these fill in guys. Nate is not playing and we have been winning so what are people complaining about? The guy hasn't won anything in this league outside of 2 dunk contests so if D'Antoni benches him and we win then good for him for not listening to people like beat-writers who have no idea what the **** they are talking about. D'Antoni is a great coach and he is proving it by changing up his style taking a bunch of 3rd rate players and backups and getting good wins. He is doing what Larry Brown could not do, adjust to the situation and make the best of it.
Talent wise there are only a few teams that have worse line-up than we do. Gallo, Lee and Harrington (and MAYBE Larry Hughes) are the only guys who would get any minutes on 75% of the teams in this league.
when duhorrible plays bad we lose, when duhorrible plays decent/good we win. theres a reason we are 7 games under .500 and it starts with him. we need a ****ing pg
Disappointing to see Duhon play so bad, especially since he was playing against C-Arroyo & M-Chalmers. Ouch!

Still, Harrington-Gallo couldn't hit open shots and Chandler disappeared (how about his shot hitting the corner of the backboard).
Gallo had a solid overall game though- got some rebounds and all.
These team can only beat teams over .500 when they shot the 3-ball.
but chris first shot was the first threeeee for nyk! who was wowed about that? I was... I haven't seen in this game pick'n'rolls by DAVID :( This team is already ( or still ) quite undpredictable, I don't know what they'll be trying in next game, only three point attempts from everywhere are beyond any doubt. I wonder why nobody called nyk bricklayers :teeth: in place of knickerbockers, NEW YORK BRICKS :gony: BTW 3 point machine Gallo has also nice drive on basket but he use it rare.
Considering most of the knicks wins in this streak came against garbage teams(perfect stretch of games to make nate look bad)..I told myself that if the knicks can show me something good against the heat and get a W then i'd say f*ck it to nate. BUT .. when i see that its a close game in the last two minutes and Wilson Chandler shoots an airball .. it makes me say .. put in NATE.. he plays well in those situations.. I don't even know...
Garbage teams? Phoenix, Atlanta, Portland? Come on bro they had legit competition.

I'm really glad with the NYK defense and yes Gallo was not making 3's but he has moves and could drive to the basket. He got fouled several times as he was driving, which means that he has control of the rock.
Duhon inconsistent and obviously his plays is crucial, give Tony a chance if this ****er continues to play like this.
I said "most" were garbage teams.. BUT your right.. Duhon is garbage.. put in toney.. but even nate would be better then duhon in that game.. its just sad
