Game time in a couple minutes...
Game time in a couple minutes...
I'm hyped. This team is weaker than the suns. Let's GO NEW YORK!!!
Howard is raping the Knicks. Lee and Chandler are useless on defense. Bring in Darko!!!
im watching on the magic network online and the annoucers were talking bout gallo a LOT. looks like our future star is getting some rep around the league. 7 points in the first quarter. only real bad shot was one where he was contested and he tilted away. knicks down by 8 though, hopefully comeback is brewing
Yeah. We need to play Darko...Howard's just abusing us right now
Score is 39-51 at the half. We're losing. The Knicks are not as effective as last night.
We can't win allowing them to penetrate inside like this....they are putting rapes on us out on the court....and it sucks seeing Patrick spur Howard on and give him tips....
i wish we just had the knowledge of why darko isnt playing. is he really doing that bad in practice? kinda scares me that he could be that bad. robinson was in the doghouse he didnt see anytime. the more i see jordan hill, the more i want brandon jennings. toney douglass looked great in garbage minutes, he really put points on the board. wheres eddy curry btw? i know he cant defend but at least put a big body on Dwight Howard. Unless curry was injured, i cant fathom why dantoni wouldnt at least give him a try. duhon was bad, hughes was bad, chandler was bad till garbage time. ppl will see 24 points and think he played well, but trust me he CHUCKED and CHUCKED doing his best impression of Jamal Crawford except he couldnt hit **** until the magic had some nonexistent bench player guarding him. and gallinari had an off shooting night, but still put up 20 points. not to bad. overall cant say i expected to the knicks to win this one, just wish we could be more competitive.
on a side note, i still remember last year how some game threads took people a couple hours to finish. now it'd be surprising if one took more than a minute to make cause the knicks suck so ****in bad. god i just want 2010 to start already. this year is pissing me off
Darko has played for better teams than this one so why isn't he playing now? He's a 7 footer with 6 fouls to give, he could have caused Dwight some problems tonight and the other night. What is wrong with this coach?
Tonight, Duhon is back again, slowly bringing the ball up court, never a long pass, no speed, I'm lost. Didn't the coaches see the speed of the game the night before? The players were up for tonight, the coach sucked the wind right out of them.
Hughes wasn't hitting, but he wasn't even playing the role of last night, D'Antonio has to go with Duhon the whole game until it's flushed early third quarter. Hughes sat in the corner waiting to run his slash plays to the top of the key, not moving the ball, no chances for repeating the assist like last night.
I haven't pulled Duhon's stats, but I don't have to, for the minutes he get's on the court, I don't see why Robinson or Douglas is not out there more? It's like playing 4 players and Gallo's Dad must of gave D'Antonio a sweet deal somewhere. Duhon, just too many turnovers, no hands, no defense, no speed, but this guy gets all the minutes and plays in slow motion. At least Gallo get's his three's on and is developing (but will be spent by all star break).
Then what did Robinson do to have to sit next to Darko, that train is boarding for Europe is six months. D'Antonio can be cold on everyone but Duhon and Galo, two pets. Galo, I can live with, there is hope, but the defense on Lewis and Pietrus was just terrible. Lewis broke out of his slump, nobody covered him. Jordon Hill is going to take 7 years to develop, when you take a guy that high in the draft, with the state of the Knicks, you need to contribute now. Lebron will be excited to play with Hill (ya, right). Finally, can someone tell me why Harrington has to sit the first 5-7 minutes and be the Knicks top scorer? Is that what the guy prefers this or does D'Antonio just like giving up 4-6 points early each game?
If D'Antonio finds something that works, he is going to change it the next night, talk about screwing with your teams mind. These players are better than their record, this coach changes so much that if something works, he keeps changing, he wants the exact player to fill the role he wants. Sorry Coach, not going to work with this crew, your not even four deep.
Great Read.....accept for the Jordan Hill comment.
I'm sure Jordan Hill, Darko, and Curry's 6 fouls each on Howard would've kept the game close.
Jordan Hill is a natural PF that needs a Bigman-coach that will make him shoot the ball only when in the paint. All that outside shooting from Jordan Hill is a product of Dantoni's poor coaching of a bigman (that is why I dont want Amare as a FA). All these Bigmen coming into the NBA trying to shoot like Dirk is a JOKE...
I had to work extra late, which isn't bad untill u bumb into the 8:00 P.M. traffic that drags to make a 30 minute ride into a hour and a half.
The game was over when I got home, but looking at the stats (the first 3 quarters 92-70), and seeing Nate Robinson earned a Dantoni's DNP..........thats it! Dantoni has no bussiness being a headcoach, he is to personal, and using playingtime and DNP as an outlet for his revenge on players do not belong in New York.
The Knicks played the number #1 team in the league that shoot the most 3-balls per game, and to deny Nate Robinson a shot at the 3-Ball contest to match scoring.....is the reason for the Knicks low scoring in the 2nd quarter (16 points), and getting blown out the 3rd quarter by the Magics 41 points in that quarter.
To not know that Nate Robinson was supposed to be a Knick starter after his performance last season......to not make Nate a Knick starter when we have the addition of Hughes & Douglas to come off the bench to replace Nate's 6th-man explosion......plus to have started 4 to 5 different players in the last 19 games at the position inwhich Nate Robinson suppose to be starting at......there is no f.....ing excuse.
This is the coaching of a Knick-Fan with a luv-hate relation for different Knick players. Not a NBA headcoach with strategy...
