The Knicks played retro ball tonight and by retro ball I mean they played like it was last season. They played all iso ball all the time. There were times I thought Melo was going to break out a cape he was playing so much hero ball. This loss may be their worst all season. It is not because it was against the Nets. This one can’t be blamed on bad refs or too much travel. The Knicks didn’t catch a crazy performance from a Chandler Parsons type tonight. The defense was all right but they were ugly on offense throughout. It was every man for themselves on offense with the exception of Tyson Chandler who cleaned up and had a monster game on offense, keeping this team in the game. This loss kills me because we should not be about to enter December with this team reverting to all their bad habits. Let’s hope the real reason they lost was because Jason Kidd was out. Here are my thoughts:
Marc and Jay talk about the Dallas, Houston and Detroit games, what happened to the defense of the first 9 games, debate whether Melo is reverting back to old Melo and talk about the calls or lack of calls he’s getting, taking too many 3′s, welcoming Novak back to the NBA, listener questions and much more.

The Knicks are supposed to win games like this and win them by a large margin. Today did not disappoint. Lets face it, if they did lose this game Knicks nation would be in a complete panic and endless talk of how the first 8 games were a fluke would ensue. Some thoughts on today’s game:
Will the Knicks end their two game losing streak against the lowly Pistons or will we record a really angry podcast tonight? Comment below throughout the game.
On a day when we were really hoping the Knicks would beat down the Rockets so we can finally end the “Would the Knicks be better if they signed Jeremy Lin” debate the exact opposite happened. The Knicks were down by around 12 points all game….until they were down by almost 30. Some thoughts on the game:
