    No doubt Minny say NO. They’ll deal him to GSW for lottery pick and Russell.

    Sure, the starters almost overcame this lackluster effort from our young reserves, but Randle fumbled our last chance away.

    11-18 from FT line didn’t help.

    Dotson and Ellington DNP bc they are shooting guards that can’t shoot. I think Dot at 30% from downtown. Awful.

    Trading your lottery pick from last year to dump a player you signed last year, not making a butt ton, is the height of stupidity. Whoever would
    Suggest a thing loses all credibility.

    The Bench scoring was low but their hustle energy kept us in the mix of the game.
    Coach Miller not having any offensive plays for the starters or the bench lineup showed how under develop the Knicks are on offense.
    Payton only receive decent picks and screens from Gibson to keep the Knicks scoring in the game.
    Trier looked lost and confused on every offensive possession having Portis or Randle not moving on the perimeter acting like postup SG, and Frank looked upset every time he brang the ball-up to the half-court line having Portis or Randle begging for the ball to do nothing with the ball when they received it.
    Portis & Randle need to be BENCH until they learn how to set a decent pick or set a decent screen for their teammates.
    The two PF Randle/Portis are USELESS on offense/defense !!!
    Taj Gibson need to be on the court in the final 6 minute of each game at his natural position PF !!!
    The best way to develop the 2nd season center MitchRob and SF Knox, and PG Frank are to have the three young players in a lineup having Taj Gibson at the PF, and brick shooting Bullock's 2-Way performance as the SG in the lineup.

    The Timberwolves GM & coaching-staff are Blind like the Pelicans GM and head-coach Gentry when AD kept telling them his athletic skills are in the top-3 NBA PF.
    Kat athletic skills belong at the 4 spot, Kat are NOT ready to be a team Center !!!
    The Knicks going after Kat to put Kat in a front-court lineup of MitchRob, Kat and Morris would be the start of the Knicks becoming a winning team.

    Entertaining game as Kenny and Clyde said. Going to blame MM for that critical turnover, why is he passing it to JR when he was doubled on the sideline of all places, should have tossed it to MRob who was a couple of feet away. Bench esp Portia and Nits were terrible a couple of more shots made by them and the Knicks could have sealed the win. Clyde said of Nits "he can't make a shot" didn't I comment something like that last game about him. I hope the Knicks go full tank mode and install Nits as the starter and prove to themselves that he's not a starting NBA PG, most scouts think he'll never amount to more than a backup anyway.

    RJ might be that guy. Reminds me of DeRozan, though I think he’ll be a better 3 pt shooter, I’m like Breen, I love the kids maturity, both mental and physical. The kid also has heart, he hated to come out of the game after he turned his ankle. Durability is an under rated asset, I hope he’s like Harden and Lebron and not Porzingis. I’m hoping he’s back soon.

    There you have it .. when the Knicks get a decent coaching-staff having the same-page PLAN to coach several ball-movement plays into the offense for 2 points, rather than 3-ball shooting on every other offensive possession.

    When Coach Miller started off his first 11 games coaching the Knicks as a coach having a plan to improve the players performance as a team on both sides of the court having a 6-5 record. I was amazed and happy for coach Miller. What happen?
    The Knicks went back to Fizdale tank-tank coaching the past 10 Knick games having a 2-8 record.
    The Knicks 2-8 record show the veteran Knicks are shooting the 3-ball on every other offensive possession, rather than work on running ball-movement plays with the young-core players for a open 2 pt shot. The coach and the veteran players performance has been the Knicks biggest LOSERS!!!

    I'm watching Knick players running on a fast break actually stop at the 3-ball line to shoot rather than keep running a few more feet to get a quick two, and probably a foul. And interim head-coach Miller agrees with the players decision-making on a fast break.
