    Thanks for the game thread, Rady.

    Looking forward to watching this game, but starting to get a little frustrated with Fragile Frank.

    At the center position, O'Quinn started game 1, Kanter started game 2, now WHG starts game 3.

    Whoa, what a sequence. KP block sparks the fast break that ends with alley oop to THJ.

    Horn better come up with starting and second unit lineups. These poor starts since PJ can be blamed in these revolving door lineups. Today Jack, THJ, CLee, KP and WHG are the starters. Frank didn't even dress, is he going to play tomorrow? I think you can rule him out as the starter day 1. If he's not healthy Knicks are going to have to make a decision about who to cut to make room for Jack.

    15 pts on 7 Knick to's by the Nets and shooting 54% on 6-11 3s has the Nets up 36-28 early 2nd.

    WHG and Kanter are two versions of the same player and neither are good defensively. We need to move one of them for a 1st round pick if we can.

    Our defense is non-existent. If this carries over to the regular season, we are easily a bottom 5 team.

    Losing 59 - 41 at the half and that's probably closer than we deserve.

    Last years team looked better than this one. KP imo a long way from being the franchise player taking over from Melo. Frank who many were looking forward to being a pass first, defensive PG has played 18 mins total in games since the Knicks drafted him. Sessions or Jack aren't going to win you many games as the starting PG. Yeah this looks like another losing season.

    I said when we traded Melo and got back Kanter, it would probably create a problem in the frontcourt. I bet Hornacek doesn't know who he should really start or what his rotations should be in general.

    If we're supposedly going young then that's what we should roll with but we all know we're being fed a bunch of crap here

    Maybe we're going to get what some fans want. I thought we were going to win 30+ games, but after watching how bad the effort has been in the preseason, maybe this team is going to struggle to beat just about anybody. It seems silly to say, but there are maybe only 2 guys on the roster who can change this defense is optional culture and those guys are Noah and Ntilikina.

    What are you talking about? That's a great play. He threw the ball out of bounds instead of taking the sack.
