    Inexcusable that McDermott has 2 shots.... KP only 16 shots. Ntikilina missed 8 of 11 shots and had only 1 assist.

    Beasley is an awful player. That turnover on a fastbreak was pathetic. He simply handed it off to the other team. Wow.

    Anyway.... Frank had zero steals. 3rd game in 4 nights might've hurt.... but I'm not seeing any improvement in the rookie's game. Might be time to take away playing time to teach him a lesson.

    Horn talking about he didn't like that last 3 Frank took in his post game. Said he wasn't looking for a quick 3 off a drag screen in transition esp by a rookie. He's a 27% 3 pt shooter btw.

    Thanks to Romeo Travis, who played with Ntilikina in France and was a high school teammate of James, the two NBA players no longer have beef, which started when James said the Knicks should have drafted Dennis Smith Jr. over Ntilikina and boiled over into the Nov. 13 Knicks-Cavaliers game when the rookie Ntilikina shoved James and started an altercation on the court.

    "I reached out to LeBron to make sure there was no hard feelings between Frank and him and let him know Frank was my guy," Travis said, according to Berman. "[LeBron] said it's not personal between them. He's just so positive about Dennis Smith and negative toward the Knicks front office."

    We have no Center, Q is not a starting center, and with Kantar out nobody bother to grab an offensive rebound..... they do not even try.....

    yeah there's a lot of things going on right now. first and foremost we are obviously missing kanter in a big way.
    not sure why thomas has been getting so few minutes lately. he did after all play a big part in those comeback wins we got not too long ago.
    i didn't actually watch the game, i'm just going by what i heard on the radio. they mentioned that the energy level seemed low at the start of the game. i hope they're not getting spoiled and lazy from all the praise they were getting from that nice streak they went on earlier this month. hopefully they figure it out. if not, then they're going to get crushed when the schedule gets a lot tougher not too long from now and there's the hope they'll get a high pick this summer.
    i don't think we should bench frank. i think that would be a mistake. let him learn from his mistakes with experience.
    blame vegas

    Horn's tier-3 coaching has been showing throughout the DNP Kanter .. the bench players has no plan or design system other than one-on-one ball when on the court.
    The 4 bench players (Mcderm/Quinn/Lance/Frank) that Horn has been using in the rotation has average 15 minute of playing-time throughout the past 16 games in different lineups having 2 or more starters in the lineup. Three of the bench players (Mcderm/Lance/Frank) has been playing well on the court having Kanter or Quinn in their lineup.
    All PG create a better performance for their team when they have that countable big-man on court to tandem with in a lineup to dish the ball to in the post or perimeter, or to create a screen/pick for the PG to go around to take a quick look at the format of opponent defense, Plus depends on their big-man on defense to call out opponents screen or picks sets. Why have Willy aka WHG clueless of all the factors above?

    Having a healthy veteran experience Noah on the roster and on the court at every practice could teach all our young core players what to expect from the a reliable skilled Big-Man on offense n defense during every practice session.
    Our Bench-Players should have much more confidence than what they been showing on the court .. but for some reason the Bench are not all that thrilled bout playing for coach Hornacek.

    Westbrook .. OKC Thunders 8-11 record has been missing Kanters big-body n skillful performance in their rotation in their last 19 games. Last season it was difficult for OKC starting the season playing small-ball without Durant n Ibaka, but OKC stayed above a .500 team all season having two reliable big-men in Adams n Kanter to have a 47 win season.

    We dont have a super-star Westbrook on our Knicks roster but we do have two experience reliable starter Big-Men centers in Kanter and Noah on the roster, plus a strong-forward in Quinn on the bench.
    PG-Jack n SG-Cee are two decent starters who should average close to 26 minute of playing-time.
    To be honest we dont have any forwards on our roster skillful enough to be starters or finishers ..
    NBA sports announcers keep hyping up KP as if KP is not a big project player .. the 30 pt performances were all good but as the NBA goes on our opponents performance gets more n more physical, that's when KP performance repeatedly shows he's still a project bench-player.
    Tim Hardaway Jr. contract and performance dont match because Tim skills are still a decent bench role-player in this league.
    We are depending on Hornacek this season .....

    i agree with most, but i don't agree that KP is not a starting player in our team, maybe he needs to be better, but he proved that he is good and till now he didn't have a bad game or a game that he showed immaturity .... the worst time he was a very good player (not star).

    I hope Noah will step up this year to back up Kanter.
