LETS GO KNICKS!!!!!
It's a strength to win when you play poorly but this was ugly and we gotta step up our game ASAP,
Wilson Chandler was the best player on the floor tonight, IMO
oh absolutely. Chandler was The Man
YESSSSSSSS I'm glad we got this win the first game of the year for this group. Now they have a taste of victory. Amare was a beast!! Chandler was a beast. Felton finished good tonight. Fields finished at the rim on most plays and nailed some BIG rookie shots. Hes gonna be SOLID.6'7 love it!!!! Toney Douglas played good. Gallo has got to step it up, he has me smdh. Coach D'antoni did a good job of getting us up to play!!! The bench was good, the blocks were there. The impact points like somebody stated earlier about AMARE are huge. WHEN the lights are brightest this dude performs.
Turiff had some blocks, Walker played like shttt!!! Mozgov needs to learn and I predict he will sometime, when is the question???? MASON WHO???
I'M HAPPY THEY WON
It was a win against a bad team. Mozgov came back to earth, he found out playing against roster hopefuls in the preseason ain't exactly like show time. Maybe Stat goes to the 5 and Wilson to the 4, Wilson beasted it tonight, Landry played well enough along with TD, Gallo and Felton were OK.
Happy for the W but Toronto sux.
Can't believe how much we've struggled in the fourth, still not sorry for staying up late until almost 5am, let's keep these wins coming!
So I know our offense was executer poorly.
And I know we barely scrapped out a win.
And I also know that a lot of these plays were embarassing.
But we got the win, and you know what sticks out to me?
We gave the ball to Amare in the 4th and for the most part he capitalized.
The raptors shot 38%...And we had TEN Blocks.
I was proud off the guys tonight. They haven't played a ton together yet, and played well for a first game together...Chandler was a beast tonight. Amare finished well in the 4th...Lets build off this win
"Tough times don't last forever, tough people do"
Word Felton is as fast as they say he is.....he seems to only use his speed occasionally however....he plays pretty controlled.
Honestly the passing was pretty good....people were open all night, we were just missing open shot after open shot.....People for some reason didn't wanna drive
This win might be scary but let's break it down:
6 guys in double figures, that means the ball is moving.
No Anthony Randolph, who figured to be a key cog...I want to see this rotation with AR in it.
Mozgov needs to learn the NBA game still...but he can learn to change shots at least.
Come the end of the season, everyone on this board will love Turiaf's heart.
Fields looks good, Chandler even better. I like Chandler off the bench as a change of pace to Gallo, can really screw up the other team's defensive rotations.
We came into another team's home opener and we beat them...by any count, as bad as the Raptors will be this season, to beat a team in their home opener is a good win, I don't care who they are.
STAT is what we want him to be, and Douglas/Felton backcourt is gonna cause teams fits, we have two solid PGs.
Not saying, just saying: Manu was a second round pick, outright won an SG job in San Antonio and the rest is history. Not saying Fields is Manu...but it's not impractical.
WE HAVE TO RUN ON THE BOSTON CELTICS ON FRIDAY!!!! WE WILL NOT BEAT THEM WITH HALF COURT SETS! They are a beatable team, Cavs took them down tonight...but let's run and get their creaky knees moving and bending.\
1-0...let's get to 2-0. One game at a time.
Knicks are building team chemistry and showing improvements.
felton looked great!!! drove, dished and scored. We have a point guard, great. Amar'e. Mozgov got into foul trouble, his upside and intimidation looks encouraging. Gallo even posted up and drove once or twice under control, cool.
