    Kiya... you missed a seasonís best 140! Nearly had 80 in the first half. 49 off the bench from AB/IQ. A Noel missed layup from all 5 starters posting double figures.

    SAC NBA worst defense, but I wonder if no EP had an impact.

    Yea, Frank is the ideal peace to have in the second unit with IQ and Obi and Rose or AB.

    Is it that much of a downgrade to go from Bullock to Knits?

    Knicks are 3-0 when Franky plays 15 minutes or more. Undefeated!

    I missed the game...had to work

    Looks like we went off with D-Rose starting. I said about 10gms he'd get a chance albeit injury due to EP. I see IQ went off nice for him to get back in his bag

    Rose had 18/6... mid 60% FG and 2-2 from downtown. IQ outplayed Halliburton. But SAC canít defend.

    Letís see if they beat Indy on Sat, then what they do Sunday and Tuesday in Det and SA. Go 2-1, get to 18-18 (.500 at the halfway Mark) and put pressure on Rose to make a significant improvement to help out playoff hopes.

    Good news is, as evident with the big jump in nationally televised games for the second part of this season: the perception is changing, and Thibbs has this team heading on the right path. 30 wins a breeze now.

    Side note: was that the last time Frank plays at MsG? Showcased for trade?

    I'm glad Thibs made the quick change in tonights rotation by adding Frank's defensive skills to the 2nd unit lineup .. because in our last outing vs the Kings, Barnes/Fox/Hield/and Haliburton had no problem scoring at will in the 2nd half of the game for a Kings win.
    Our 6.5 Frank's defensive-skills belong in the Knicks rotation .. Thibs have 4 decent double-digit scoring guards in the rotation .. in Rose, RJ, IQ, and Burks. Plus our PF Randle has become our teams highest scoring double-double player on the team.
    Giving Frank playing-time night after night in the 2nd-unit alongside Quickley, i believe would make the 2nd unit a threat on offense/defense, plus improve Frank defensive-skills, and improve IQ offensive-skills as a tandem in the lineup. Plus have their teammates start trusting their decision making.

    Are Leon Rose (Thibs) going to trade Frank ???

    Great point. Frank was impactful tonight. He was prepared and took advantage. He needs to practice well and be consistent. EP ainít no Wally Pip, but I still prefer to see Rose and Frank take over the PG duties.

    With the trade deadline looming next MAR 25th, you have to think they’re showcasing Nits for some help in the playoff run.

    Frank showed he's serviceable, what he's shown AT BEST in his brief NBA career but we outclassed the Kings all night. To be expected from a 12-20 team

    They still scored 120pts, so obviously defense was of no relevance...nothing has change other than find PT for him so we can trade him BEFORE HE GETS HURT AGAIN!!!

    I prefer...


    No EP
    Start IQ
    Trade Knits
    D-Rose lead Bench Mob
