    At this point I could care less if they have to meet the Cavs in the 1st rd, just make the playoffs at this point. One game at a time, the Wiz have won 7 of 10 so they're no pushover. I'm still positive about the talent on this squad esp when KP gets back, I just think Horn just has to find the lineup to unleash it. Kuz starting and CLee coming off the bench seems to be a start and maybe Noah not playing was addition by subtraction, paving the way for KP to play the 5 and Melo at PF. I'm not confident that Baker is the answer as the starting SG but play him there until it stops working. We need to finish out the month playing at least .500 ball and then take that momentum into the rest of the season.

    I guess what I wanted to say is in order to get a good pick you need to tank all season long. Being 12th from the bottom you're highly unlikely to get a top 3 draft pick, the odds are <1%. But anyway, we won, our schedule till early February looks okish, so you never know, maybe we'll turn things around and get to a >.500 record before the All-Star break?

    "The Post has learned the stretch provision (spreading out the cap hit over a longer stretch of years for a waived player) still will be in the new CBA. Jackson can use it on the Hell’s Kitchen product this offseason or next."

    The article says KP-Melo-Kuz should be the starting front court.

    This win over the Celtricks explains a lot bout the Knicks as a team ..
    The win over the Celtrics are based on the performance of 7 Knicks bench-players receiving 20 minutes playing-time in the rotation. This is the first time in the season we allowed 4 of our bench-players to receive 20 minutes in a game. YES! we have good depth on our bench which we hasn't used until tonight in the season.

    The teams that know us the best are the Atlantic Division Celtricks n Raptors always know our Knicks scouting-report for the game like the back of their hand.
    Our OFFENSE scouting report is mainly based on 3 players performance averaging 44% fga .. Rose/Melo/KP .. because on any given night 2 of these players will receive a 40 minute night.
    Our Knicks DEFENSE-scouting-report are we allow opponents 107 points per game this season.

    Baker is far from being a starter .. we just needed a change in our backcourt .. Baker n Rose gave us 2 combo-guards in the backcourt to confuse Isiiah Thomas. B+ strategy
    Adding Big-Body rookie Plumlee to the rotation to make space in the paint for 20 minute, plus adding our rookie rebounder Willy for 20 minute too .. lifted the Knicks performance to scoring 55 points, 16 assist, and grabbing 35 rebounds from our bench depth. The Knicks out-rebounded Celtricks 57-33 .. A+ strategy

    I will keep mentioning the Knicks are not a small-ball team .. the Knicks are a .600 regular-season winning BIG-MAN team .. having frontcourt players Noah/KP/Quinn/Willy/Plumlee plus keeping Melo n Kuz at the SF position throughout the rotation.

    A frontcourt lineup of "KP-Melo-Kuz" are considered a small-ball lineup that will get out-rebounded by opponents, plus get scored on consistently inside the paint by opponents. Dont get it twisted .. KP is a poor center and weak PF, Melo is a outside scoring PF and the leagues weakest defensive PF, Kuz is a 2 way rookie SF.
    All the media sports writers dont watch Knick games like we do .. they just hype up players for the fans.

    I've been mostly down on Noah all season, the team is 5-0 when he doesn't play which I didn't know. If they have to use the stretch provision on him it means we couldn't trade him which will suck. It happened to Josh Smith, Pistons stretched him and now he's playing in China. Noah is a worse case Josh Smith because he gives you nothing 10 ft from the rim on offense.

    Looks like we'll get an extended look at the team w/o him with that severe ankle sprain. Maybe the Knicks can get it together w/o him and we can see what we have in WHG and Plum.

    Celtics are a quality team and have improved every since the arrival of Brad Stevens...they are on pace to have 3yrs in a row rising in the regular season standings. The win yesterday has to be considered a quality win even if say C's weren't on their A game.

    What's scary is not so much "the Phil and Melo tanglin and a tusslin never was bromance" but the fact D-Rose bouts ta get his moaney too. No trade clause, plus a trade kicker, max-near max to boot coming up...Man he's future paycheck hungry

    Yickity Yikes!
