The Knicks don’t send their fans into a panic by beating the Pistons

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:

  • The 2nd half almost seemed as if the Knicks were toying with the Pistons.  At least 3 times Detroit would come to within 8-10 points and then the Knicks would go on a big run.
  • Carmelo was unstoppable today.  When he’s scoring from inside and out as well as passing when he’s double-teamed there isn’t much you can do.
  • Welcome back Steve Novak, we missed you.
  • Camby looked a lot more mobile today.  Hopefully this means he’s getting into game shape.  We need another rebounder out there.
  • Can someone start a movement to ban Rasheed Wallace from taking shots more than 12 feet from the basket?
  • Jason Kidd is more important than people realize.  In the 2nd quarter Detroit made a run and almost came back to tie the Knicks.  Kidd enters and suddenly the Knicks are up by 20.  This is not the first time something like this has happened.
  • The Knicks were real solid from the line tonight, something that was a weakness up until today.
  • Detroits three highest paid players come off the bench.  I’m going to go out on a limb and say if half of your salary is spend on 3 players who barely produce you’re not making the playoffs.
  • Remember when Detroit wanted to build the roster around Stuckey?
  • It hasn’t been confirmed yet but I believe Charlie Villanueva got a stat other than a DNP-CD today.
