Y’all threw a party when Frank scoreded 17 the other night. Thirdly, if Frank was the great defender y’all claim he could guard 1-5 with his size and wingspan. Numbers don’t lie. Frank neither scores or defends so he IS a liability on both ends of the floor. But instead of admitting their mistake( no DM, no DSJR) the Knicks are doubling down on their mistake in Trump-fashion and running Frank out there every night instead of burying him on the BENCH next to Baker. Oh well, Knicks tank rolls on. Seems like a decade of this already....

    It ain’t personal he’s a nice story refugee war torn Africa raised by his mom loving older brother I get all that. But there are plenty kids from the war torn inner US cities streets that can actually play basketball. Choose one of them instead with your lottery pick. If you are old enough to remember the Fredric Weisss debacle then you should wonder why go THAT route again. Lebron called it last year. Pjax screwed us. Rant over.

    Weis wasnít even 20 years ago. I assume everyone on here remembers him. It gets old every game to hear about the 2017 draft. Itís done. It happened. PJ and Lebron can go **** each other.

    Wow! that's bad .. u dont see the big difference in the lineup movement when Franks on the court .. it seems u havnt notice our weak area and our strong area having Frank on the court .. Our half-court game needs a lot of work .. our transition ball-movement game has been improving since the change in starters .. I thought the Pacers were gonna grab a 10 point lead on the Knicks starters in the first quarter then stretch the lead each quarter.
    The only Knick player in the rotation that bothers me besides LT .. are the Knick player all of our Knick opponents has been setting-up to score on the most throughout each of our 8 games this season ???

    Fiz is playing for the lottery. He wants these kids to compete and play well and still come away with a top 10 pick. Nothing wrong with that. With KP injured and this draft class itís the smart move. We canít rely on free agents.

    Why else is Lance Thomas in the game down the stretch chucking up a corner 3 that pretty much handed Indy the win?

    With that said, the team played well. Timmy was super efficient for once this season. He got caught betwixt and between on that backbreaking 3 off a rebound... he drifted towards the shooter then tried to get back... too late. His man got the rebound.

    But calling out Timmy and Frank is crazy... they played well. Kanter was awful... turnovers, terrible fouls, missed easy shots, his man was perfect and dropped 30 on him. This is why NYK lost.

    It was a great night for Knicks. All the kids flashed their talent... they battled a tough, rugged playoff squad... and pocketed a loss for their lottery dreams.

    Team has such a bright future. Just enjoy it. Frank is 20 and running the point at MSG against a team that took LeBron to Game 7 five months ago... cut him some
    slack.

    Pacers bench scored 44 pts, 12 ast, 17 rb, plus shot 18-31 fga
    Knicks bench scored 33 pts, 5 ast, 16 rb, plus shot 13-32 fga

    We are getting close to being a decent performing team.

    Why did we put in lance over Mitch in the 4th quarter? (Zion!)
    I watched Robinson well on the defense end tonite .. and he was the main reason the Pacers struggled a plus 4 while on the floor. Mitch were a beast tonight on the defensive end .. I'm disappointed he sat on the bench in the fourth .. and Fiz excuse were he wanted to match-up with the Pacers small-ball lineup SMH

    We need some defense off the bench .. the 2nd unit were to slow tonight .. Kanter, Burke, Mario need to work more on co-existing as a trio-unit, and (the so-call captain) Lance Thomas needs to be replaced hopefully soon by a healthy rookie Knox.

    Wow! rewatching the game .. Timmy Hardaway Jr. actually stood his ground to pick up a charge on the Pacers in the first half .. a first!
    The previous game vs the Nets Timmy gave out 8 Dimes .. a first!
    It seems coach Fizdale has been improving Timmy's one-dimensional performance.
    I dont think Fizdale has a 360 coaching plan to stop all Knick opponents from scoring over poor defender Timmy throughout each game !!!
