Hey Kiyaman,
This is what we look like playing a team over .500 and are healthy. No matter how they play this is still a team of odd pieces. Square pegs for round holes. You can start with RJ and his defense. Then to Miller being a creature of habit by doing everything the same way in every game.

Miller not doing the same thing in this game !!!

Frank out at the 7 minute mark of every game.
Payton in and plays rest of the 1st and 2nd quarters.
Frank start the 3rd and Payton comes after 5 minute.
Payton and company play all of the 4th quarter.

Millet takes Frank out at the 7 minute mark in every game now for Payton. Payton is starting the 3rd and at the 4 minute mark no Frank. And 22 pt down.

Wonderful!

We need to slide this Bum to the 2 position. Go ahead and start Payton and have RJ and DSJ platoon backup PG duties.

He hasn't had 1 major UPTICK game since starting besides maybe the Mavs road game which was moons ago. He was picked likely for Phil's system and since he's no longer and looking at the depth of our team his services are no longer needed

If you knew anything about BB and talent you would know that Bum isn't a 2. As for RJ at the PG you must have forgotten about the start of the season. And if you want to talk about BUM then RJ is a good place to start. So are saying things to just say them are do you want to talk about real BB?

Taking Frank out of the starter lineup in the 2nd half for Payton is not good strategy SMH
Plus shooting 2-20 3-ball shots are not a good strategy either SMH
Fizdale (Blatt) coaching is BACK !!!
If the 3-Ball shots are not dropping its time to run a few 2 point plays and tighten up on the DEFENSE!
This are the Knicks first time going against the Butler/Dragic's Miami Heats.

Ntilikina disappears 2 out of every 3'games, when he starts playing more consistently, his minutes and playing time will be more consistent, he would never be a starting PG on a good team.

Twenty years later... Riley and his heat continue to be exactly everything Dolan?s KNicks is not. Just lovely. Toss in RJ going 1-10, Knits 1-3, Taj and MM / Randle. Let?s just say that?s a clunky ensemble.

Oh, and so much for the EP factor.

Tonight, Knick game stats vs Heats look like all the Knick players had a BUST night, except Portis.
The Knicks 2nd unit lineup that gave us a 3-1 flow of MitchRob, Portis, Knox, Dotson looked like they would've played much better in the 2nd half having Payton's leadership in their lineup, instead of a raw PG-DSJ.


Tonight, Mike Miller's coaching reminded me of Fizdale's loser coaching .. LOSERS !!!
And adding DSJ to the rotation on a weak Hawk team was a good move.
Adding DSJ to the main rotation vs elite teams like the Heats, and tomorrow Bucks are absolutely STUPID!
Especially, being a new coach working on putting chemistry in two separate lineups, Starter-5 & Bench-lineup.
Miller should have stuck with what was working for him in the Kings and Denver game, by keep building two separate chemistry lineups. Yes, the bench lineup of Payton Dotson Knox Portis and MitchRob has been getting on the same-page, plus out-performing the Knicks starter lineup the last few games. The Payton & MitchRob pickNroll are FIRE in the 2nd half of games.
Now .. dummies want to put Payton in the starter lineup, when Payton has a better performance clicking well in the 2nd unit lineup of bench players.

We have a back to back against two elite NBA teams that may bumb heads in the ECF .. Heats & Bucks !!!
We got BLOWN-OUT in the first quarter of the Heats game 39-20 SMH
Both of the Heats two guard rookies performance look like we made the wrong pick in the draft the way the Heat locked-up RJ tonite.

Have to imagine that Spoelstra wants his guys to crush us and make Miller look bad to try to save face for Fizdale.

So True .. Heats Coach Spo were upset bout the firing of Fizdale, and took advantage of every weak area in the Knicks performance last night to grab a 39-20 lead over the Knicks in the first quarter. Yeah! That's a first-quarter BLOW-OUT !!!
The Knicks playing the top 3 winning team in the East Miami Heats for the first time this season were the same effect as playing the top 2 team in the West Denver Nuggets for the first time this season to get Blown out of MSG 129-92. Hopefully, coach Miller will build on this loss .. today we go up against the top winning team in the NBA the Milwaukee Bucks.
