    If a low block player can ever be called a chucker, it has to be Kanter. He had no shot at making that reverse layup and should have passed it.

    Mudiay should have worked on his passing game to get 10 or more assist on his old team ..
    Kanter's put-backs and offensive rebounds make him valuable to the Knicks until Perry can find better ..
    The Kanter n Knox at the 5 & 4 spot having Trier & Timmy needed a Draymond Green in the lineup CTFU

    Kanter is a a very good low block paint player who only plays for self. He gives absolutely nothing on the other end unless he headhunts for rebounds. He should have really good trade value right now

    The Joker already has his triple double but he hits his only 3 which is a dagger giving them a 7 pt lead with 3 left.

    Fiz is not trying to win games. He plays Kornet in crunch time in a close winnable game. He's lost CLee, LT, Burke, Kanter in this effort to give young players playing time.

    Winning games is not on COACH but system, game plan, rotations, are. Winning is on this front office which they started out the yr with 3msgs...

    1 - Don't look for #kporzee to return this yr

    2 - We're developing

    3 - Look for us to make leap next yr


    Then reinforced 1 & 2 barely over a month into the season. Fizdale said in week 4 we aren't trying to win games and we're not that good of a team but the focus is development. Tonight he fails by not leaving Knits in the game to close(he played well enough), we did not see Knox get enough looks late. No problem going with Kornet late he's a starter and he played well. Fiz is following the lead of his front office in a yr in which he knows he has a free pass

    A free pass .... so far the 2018-19 coaching development has been strictly on getting ZION!
    Tonight game should have been a better developing process of the young core players in the same lineup developing together.
    Fizdale's 38 games of coaching has already got all the 2019 FA wanting no parts of the Knicks unless paid double their worth $$$.
    When you look at all the FA the Knicks has signed up in the past 5 yrs from having a poor mismanagement front office, and a LOSER coaching-staff .. having playoff hopes end after the Christmas game each year .. All-Star FA like Durant / Kahwi / Klay / Kyrie signing on to the Knicks are DREAMS !!!

    Denver has the best record in the WC. Knicks hung for 3 quarters... played a very good 1st Quarter. 6 guys scored in double figures. Kornet held his own... Knox and Knits and Mudiay and Timmy flashed in some moments.

    The perfect game, for this roster, this team, this season.

    They competed, responded well after the last few road blowouts.

    Did it matter who was on the floor in the 4th? Teams like DEN will sleepwalk through the first half... just a coping mechanism to survive a long season... good teams will put it in neutral vs bad teams, then turn it on when necessary to procur the W. Especially after a few days off, after a holiday break of sorts.

    I felt Game was right there to be had... 106-102... 3:30 left... Kornet sets pick and then rolls to hoop. Timmy gets doubled, but instead of dishing to a cutting Kornet, he goes hero-ball and tries to split the double by dribbling through 2 guys. Obviously, DEN easily steal ball from THJr... ends up leading to a 3 from Jocic... game-set-match.

    THJR turnover was the turning point in the game without question...back breaker. THJR is one of the biggest zero sum players in this league.
