    I didn't see a pick on MM on that play. Let say you are correct. If you know BB then you would know that whomever was involved in the pick of MM should have roll with Siakum. Now if you recall Dotson in front of Siakum so it wasn't Dotson man that set the pick. And if you really want to get technical if it was Dotson man then MM should have switch letting Dotson take Siakum but as you know that didn't happen. Raptors had been hitting their 3's so Dotson did the only thing he was suppose to do and that was go cover his man if MM didn't switch.

    How in the hell did that play cost us the game? You must didn't see the pass Payton threw to the Raptor in the final minutes. You didn't see the inbound pass from Bobby to 3 Raptors around Randle and Payton. Don't lie!!

    As for calling out RJ poor defensive effort. First of all it has to be an effort. The whole season he has been losing his man, running trying to caught up with his man then just letting him go and going under the basket to rebound. How do you think he been playing all those minutes?? It because of what I just mention. The one time he played or tried to play defense was in the game he got hurt. For trying to play defense he immediately got into foul trouble. HOW IN THE HELL DID HE WIN A STARTING JOB FROM DOTSON?? HE DIDN'T!!!

    You are correct when players get minutes their flaws get exposed. Been saying that to you the whole season. Glad it sinking in!!

    Went and look at the game and you were correct it was a high pick set Dotson man(Lowry) on the dump and the 3 by Siakum.

    Not trying to be right about the above plays. Dotson at the 4:58 mark (I think) was pick by Marc G.(Bobby P. guarding him) at the top of the arc. Bobby didn't switch and Dotson fought over the pick but was to late and Lowry hit a 3. On the next Raptors possession the same thing happen but this time Bobby P. switch(Lowry lost the ball, I think) and Dotson stay with Marc G. On the next Raptors possession they tried the play again and again Bobby P. switch(block Lowry shot driving to the basket) with Dotson staying on Marc G.

    If I'm Dotson then there should have been a switch both times with MM because that is what happen and should have happen on all 3 of the above plays. If you watch both plays Dotson is looking for the switch but it doesn't happen so he goes back to defend his man. On the 3 pt shoot Dotson saw MM leave his man(Lowry) at the top of the arc while Siakum was 4 or 5 feet above the arc. Maybe he thought MM could recover the D. on Siakum if not his man was complete wide open at the arc(making his last 3 from there).

    Again not trying to be right but just saying what happen on defense plays before those 2 happen.

He's not making mega bucks either, signing a total contract that has 56M guaranteed. He's been put in the main man role and he's never been and maybe never will be and that's something I was concerned about but he's a decent piece to have.
    Randle being given the first option on offense, plus made captain of the Knicks are to much for a Die Hard Knicks Fan to swallow.
    Especially, after watching Randle-Handle 4th quarter performance in 44 games that lead to only 12 wins.
    There's NO Hate for Randle-Handle .. It's just Randle's Team-Leadership is the same as Tim Hardaway Jr., and Iso-Melo, and Starbury.

    Randle would probably be a decent 28 min PF .. If the off-season Knicks FO would have resign DeAndre Jordan, and traded with Rockets to get the HOF Chris Paul to run the Knicks 2019-20 season. Chris Paul's clout would've had NY reporters get the no-defense ISOLATION head-coach Fizdale fired during the preseason games. The rookie RJ Barrett would started the season as a pass-first guard/forward, Randle would've been a hustling-player giving good Picks and Screens for teammates while playing off the ball.
    Frank would've been improving at leading the point, plus calling several plays, instead of passing the ball and running to the right side of the court to be taken out the offense. Dotson performance would've improve each game having CP3 in the lineup to become a decent 2-Way 30 minute player. Plus Chris Paul would've had FortKnox select 4 places on the court where his Jumper falls 70% of the time, plus set up screens for FortKnox to slash to the basket.
    Chris Paul .. like Jason Kidd would have played the final 8 minutes of the 4th quarter to give the Knicks a 50-50 chance for the win throughout the 2019-20 season.

    Last season on the Boston Celtics Morris & Hayward were the teams worst defensive switching players !!!
    Spurs coach Pop figured that's the only weakness he would have to fix on Morris performance.
    The inexperience coach Fizdale were to blind to notice that Portis, Randle, and Morris are poor defensive-switching players, which is why the Knicks has 34 LOSSES in 46 games !!!
