The third straight loss .. The Wolves 140-134 .. the Heats 127-120, and the (30-43) Magics 111-106
Are we ready for the playoffs ???
Hell NO !!!
We needed both our play-makers (Brunson & D.Rose) in our rotation throughout the midseason games to get everyone in the rotation (and roster) involved in the Knicks offense/defense before the playoffs.
Throughout the season we have not worked on any low-post plays for any of our big men.
We actually stopped our transition fast break points from Obi Toppin speed, slashing, and crazy catches above the rim this season.
Giving Randle, Barrett, and Brunson the green-light to shoot 20 or more shots in ALL 76 games of the season ..
Showed us Knicks fans a season of wins/losses having NO team ball-movement performance throughout the season.
Other than Quickley, the other 5 players in the game rotation had to shoot above 51% to score 15 pts in a Knicks game this season.
Here's the scoring offense we practice in every game this season to prepare us for the playoff ....
1) The one on one offense (Brunson/Randle/Barrett)
2) Bully-ball offense (Randle/Barrett)
3) 3-ball offense (Barrett/Randle)
We forget to reward Mitch Robinson, for averaging 5 to 7 offensive-rebounds in each of the last 25 games .. SAD!
The other night when MitchRob & Grimes both had a 1-1 FGA game .. I said the Knicks have NO complimentary players in their offensive rotation.
Even Josh Hart is losing his complimentary-performance each night he plays in our ISO-Offense.
