    Nyk Logo What reason do you have for our last two losses .. cavs n raptors ???

    These were two pitiful losses that could use a better explanation than what were given on post game comments from coaches and players.
    It wasn't the Losses that disturb me the most it was how we loss that was disturbing ....
    We gave-up quick when both our opponents played physical for the win ..
    There were no ball-movement, no pick n roles or screens, no team-defense, no verbal leadership between teammates, no time-outs called to regroup, plus our starter-lineup looked clueless vs both elite teams.

    KP misses 3 FTs down the stretch of the CLE game.... Cavs got lucky with Korver getting hot.... we kind of went away from the flow of the offense....

    The TOR game almost seemed like the team knew it could beat them and sort of mailed it in. They realize winning road games vs good teams will be hard.... we almost have to play a flawless game to even have a shot....

    KP was miserable and we know NY won't win many games when KP is having an off night (which we almost did vs cLE). But if KP is miserable and we are in the road then we have no chance.

    I also think Horn's rotations didn't work in second half of last 2 games. KOQ is clearly struggling right now.... so why not give Noah or WHG some court time?

    Our team is young and still has a lot of maturation to do. We're a .500 team. Most likely for the next two seasons.

    Once we learn how to play with the same intelligence and intensity every game, then we'll be a 50+ win team. Leadership will also develop from confidence, our players just need time tbh.

    The Knicks loss to the 3-15 record Hawks should raise a commotion from Knicks fans bout our coaching on the road, and bout our coaching in a Back to Back game. Knicks center Kanter missed the Hawks game which is the first half of a back-to-back on Friday while nursing back spasms, and is questionable for Saturday game vs top contender Rox.
    Coach Horn played a 9 man rotation vs the 3-15 record Hawks, plus coach Horn gave the Knicks main 4 starters 35 or more minute of playing time vs a 3-15 record Hawks team to advance our 4 starters offensive stats record which cost the Knicks team a loss.
    My complaint against coach Horn are we have a Back to Back road game vs one of the top-3 worst teams in the league, then against the top-2 winning team in the league. Plus we rarely give any of our bench players 15 minute of playing time in a game except for Mcderm, who happen to be the only 2-way SF on the roster.
    Having Noah return during a DNP injured Kanter, plus against a 3-15 Hawks team would have been perfect timing to put Noah in the rotation. Noah having illness after a 12 game suspension is BS !!!
    Coach Horn not having a bench lineup to go up against the 3-15 Hawks in the first game of a back to back says our Knicks are a .500 fluke team having serious intention on tanking the 2017-18 season.
