Thing with LA you have to look at is they're the most laziest team in the NBA right now when it comes to defense.
Kobe lost his defensive intensity...people say his defense got worse, I wouldn't say that. Defense is an art, Bryant and Artest have been some of the best we had this decade...but both of these guys seem to lost the passion for defense, the pride for it.
By seeing in the video, Lakers obviously don't take man to man defense and play a weak zone.
Carmelo Anthony, JR Smith and Tyson Chandler will exploit this.
On top of that, if Knicks do their usually ball movement, expect a lot of open 3pt shots and a potential 120 point night. Lakers have the worst defensive bench in the NBA, they're a poor constructed team who thought Dwight Howard alone would put them on the top.
Good to see LA failing, of course they make the playoffs...but f*ck them. I hope Nash stays unhealthy, Howard becomes more injury prone and Kobe says f*ck LA, and signs to New York for the veteran minimum to play 3rd string SG behind Shumpert and Smith lol.
Win all 6 or haters gonna hate.
GREAT WIN over Lakers in MSG
The Knicks scored 41 points in the first quarter on the Lakers ..
Melo was on Fire to get Dantoni FIRED, and Howard fired too ..
untill Howard SLAMMED Melo down on the hard wood ..
Melo maybe out for two to three of our next home games ..
I dont know who to thank for this big WIN .. Barkley's big mouth, or PG-Jason Kidd's 40 minutes of (leadership) playingtime taking only 2 shot attempts in a game where the Knicks held the lead for 48 minutes.
Would have been a blowout if Melo didn't get hurt.
I hope he is not out for long, I don't even know if we can beat the Cavs with Irving back without Melo.
We killed Miami without him but the last game he was out, we were looking pretty bad
I hear ya Kiyaman, loud and clear, Melo almost pulled it off until Howard put Melo on his backside, which really pissed me off big time and shattered my wet dream, a rude awakening to say the least. Itís obvious he wanted this game bad and wanted to expose Díant on so many levels. Heíll probably sit the next game against the Cavs but Iím sure the rest of the Knicks will be licking their chops due to getting more minutes. With Kidd at the helm this team is going to make Woody the hardest coach to beat.
+1 for a great thread
Lakers had to play better coz they were @ MSG and TNT so whole nation saw them and maybe Canadians too
@ Cavs it was just on from league pass channel.
next Lakers is @ Wizards who knows what
We won a close one .. Varejao's missss .. thanks to MSG loud-crowd vibration .. the fans wanted in on the WIN ..
We have a 18-5 record
WTF happen in MSG vs the young Rockets team .. Linsanity save all his energy of Whiip-A.... performance for the team he wouldve accepted $3M per to stay a part of.
Felton's 8 season experience in NBA is not a better creator than 2nd season Jeremy Lin B.Ball IQ tactics. Lin started all his Rocket teammates attacking the rim as early as 3 minutes after tip-off, plus running the Knicks like the Knicks were the team on the end of a back to back.
Felton has become so comfortable at kicking the ball out to the peremeter, that an oposition like the Cavs & Rockets who dont have any bigmen depth on the bench .. Felton was suppose to kick the ball inside to cutters Brewer, JR, White, Copeland, Kurt, and Tyson to get their points from the foul-line in the first half of the game.
The Young Houston Rockets beat us twice with the same game Plan ....
For those who think Melo would have made a difference had to forget how a run-run Chandler Parson moving without the ball kept losing Melo to have a season-high scoring game.
If Woody dont start reading oposition scouting-reports for weakness and injuries before a game, plus make his rotation of players read the scouting-report so the entire rotation could point out our oposition weakness before the midseason arrive, alot of teams will take advantage of our 4 quarter peremeter game-plan, we will bumb into alot of oponents like the young Rockets and Cavs .. We won to many games in our 18 wins off of last-shots ..
to close for comfort...
