    Getting a little sick of seeing Bargs name on the injury report. They need to change his injury from strained calf to lack of heart.

    Going to see tonight what the Knicks hope they can get in the draft, a very talented Anthony Davis.

    In theory, a winnable game, but we don't seem to win games anymore, so, who knows? Our guys have made the majority of our recent losses interesting at least and one of two ways we can go from here, actually win a game or start getting blown out on a nightly basis. I'm still hoping for the former. Let's go Knicks!

    Rady .... Nice Game Thread .. this is the game the Knicks start their winning streak on verse tough opponents in the next 10 days.
    The 18 losses has the Knicks ticket prices lowering around the league. Dolan dont like lowering prices at MSG!

    The Knicks will finally play defense in the 4th quarter, so this win dont go down the stretch depending on the $124M man decision making.

This team is competing right now, but if we don't start getting some wins, I wonder how long that will last. We are tied for most losses in the NBA right now, so you can argue we are one of the 2 worst teams in the NBA (at best, worst 3). Teams doing that poorly eventually stop showing up to play. Not sure how PJ and Fisher would handle it if that happened. Not sure I want to find out.
    Great Point
    Fisher has to many players in the rotation with ending contracts that needs wins for their new contract in offseason.
    Amare / Dally /Acy / Jason Smith / Aldrich / Wear .. none of those players are retiring after this season.
    Fisher has to start playing these BIGS the right way in the rotation .. the spot minute playing time in different lineup each game has the Bigs playing sloppy.
    Acy looked real pitiful playing LaMarcus, we have to stop playing Acy at the 4, he is strictly a 3

    Bargs is on the Wise-List (not injury-list) by not being apart of a 4-18 tanking team. Wisest player on the team.
    Calderon 2nd wisest player for missing 14 of the 22 games.

    The clock is now back to normal size. For anyone who didn't see it, it was temporarily huge in the bottom right corner of the screen, up until nearly the halfway point of the 1st quarter. So far, most exciting part of this game for me.

    Cole Aldrich first center off the bench in a game where Dalembert doesn't start and has yet to play. A transition to youth or is Dalembert hurt?

    Offenses rolling along for both teams, but neither team showing any physicality on the defensive end. We can win this game, but we are so broken at winning anything this season, who is ever going to bet on us actually doing it?

    Dally is a 16 yr vet probably switching with Stat in this back to back. Stat probably won't play tomorrow and Dally plays tomorrow.

    Guys don't believe me that Stat could be an important piece if he's willing to sign a reasonable contract. I haven't heard his opinion about taking less money to stay in NY though.
