If TD makes his 3's we're good.

Toney Douglas aint been right ever since the shoulder injury and i don't expect him to MAGICALLY be a "x-factor" i expect him to be a role player and do his job getting the ball to our players at the right moments... he may be some what of a factor on the defensive end but that's about it..Landry Fields is more capable of running the point than Toney Douglas... There is a reason he's been routing on the bench.. it's not because woody has some kind of beef with him and it sure hell ain't because he's our secret X- factor for the heat.
If Baron was here no way TD even sniffs the court, now he's suppose to be the x=factor
The x-Factor in this series is AMARE STOUDEMIRE and was always AMARE STOUDEMIRE . If Amare cant produce like he did last game we are toast & this series is fanito..and thats the way the cookie crumbles you can call TD a x-factor if you want...thats your opinion... i just never new Toney douglas all of a sudden was the guy on the knicks that determines the outcomes of a game. JR smith has a better chance of being the X-factor IMO, another crappy game by him.. our chances will be slim, espcially if STAT cant get it going .
NO NO NO
Do what Toney Douglas Do Won't Do ****.
...hope he proves me wrong, but come on.... This is the epitome of a delusioned fan. Even if he did have a big game, to say you expected it is just wrong...and dumb. Dumb wrong.
Even if i could afford im still not buying it....
We dont believe u, u need more people
Play JR Smith at point, Douglast should get zero minutes
Considering the observation made when TD was allowed more minutes; he neglected to improve his decision making; he neglected to improve his dribble-drive and finish at the rim where he has repeatedly force-flopped himself to the floor with little to no contact.
This, to the untrained eye seems like "drawing a foul", but in reality he does it to distract from the fact he cannot finish in traffic.
I attribute this continuation (and my next point) to being trained (or not properly) in the unorthodox former coach way.
TD seemed fine for our former coach when he had the green light to chuck. When he was asked to facilitate and decide quickly, to get guys involved or take matters into his own hands... he failed.
My second point and reason for TD failure is his inability to learn and understand what exactly a PG does. A PG knows that guy's want the ball in a position to catch and shoot or tripple-threat in rythem. All PG's know this as well as to accomplish these passes WHILE NOT STARRING DIRECTLY AT THEIR TEAMMATE, or after picking up their dribble...
TD has yet (and its been years now) to demonstrate his acquiescense to the nuances of a true PG. He is stuck in tweener mode where he was conditioned to be by you-know-who.
All TD can be counted on doing is hopefully locking down on D. And again, to the untrained eye he does, until you consider he can't properly get around screens, he fouls too much when unecessary, and he doesn't stop the ball.
Really Bibby is our best hope and he's semi-fragile/over-the-hill.
