its like dumb and dumber with these 2
I was at the game last night... I give credit to Woody for the quick timeout in the first quarter, with Knicks failing behind 10-4 or something. Our offense was pathetic (3 turnover and 3 bricks in their first 7 possessions, or something). Perhaps that was helping the Mavs on offense... But this is what a coach does. BREAKS THE OTHER TEAM'S momentum.
With TC out, and Shump sick and Melo not 100% (disappeared after brilliant 1st Q), and getting nada from our guards... Last night was all about Martin and Woody.
What happen in the final 17 seconds to tie or win the game???
WOW .... u actually believe ur own comment forgetting the two BALLHOGGERS who are always taking the ball out of all our PG hands, making every Knicks PG look like they are uncapable of bringing the ball pass midcourt. u didnt understand why Jason Kidd played SG lastseason?
I guess u forgot what Knicks player average 24 shot attempts per game, and what Knicks player average 18 shot attempts per game .. u also forgot what took place in the final 17 seconds of the game (why did we need 2 time-outs?), u also forgot the NBA highest scorer ISO-Melo was given the ball twice to shoot the final shot in the 17 seconds, and in one of Melo's decision he too, passed the ball to JRsmith after JR delusional shot.
After Brooks put the Rockets up by 2 points on FT with 17 seconds left, what 2 Knicks players tried to dribble the ball up court to get trapped, and was force to call a time-out? it wasnt PG-Beno. It was the 2 Ballhogger shot-callers on the Knicks.
During the time-out when Woodson ask JR why did he take that shot when we had a fresh 24 seconds, and JR response was I thought we were down by 2. Should Woodson had put JR back into the game, after that response?
JR is a bonehead no doubt and not because he took that shot, he was wide open and if he made it he would have been a hero.
But Beno had two shots to win and tie the game in the last minute and he didn't need to foul Brooks with the game tied sending him to the FT line to put the Rox ahead with 17 seconds.
You expect dumb things from JR but Beno looks to be another one of those old heads like Bibby, BD and JKidd with high expectations and lackluster results.
Felton is goin to be available for Pistons = he will back to S5 again
Why is there any more dissection into who has fault, who took shots before that scenario, etc.
There's no reason to keep the ball in the corner where you can be trapped and/or forced into a turnover. Get it to the top of the key then hold it for the last shot, or burn a timeout. I don't see how JR would automatically be the hero for taking a 3, in a tied game, with the shot clock off, and potentially missing and giving it back to the other team (which we saw) or even making it, and leaving the other team more than enough time to get a good shot.
It's kinda hard to take Woodson seriously when he says some unbelievably dumb **** like this. It's almost like....he REALLY is a stupid as he looks on the sidelines.
Guess if I was simple in the mind...everything would be fine.
