Thoughts on tonights game Knicks at Raptors 10/19/12

  • Toronto for 3….Swish. Knicks for 3….Brick. Toronto for 3…Swish.  Knicks for 3….Brick.
  • Prigioni to STAT looks very promising.
  • Kyle Lowry was acquired for a draft pick.  Kyle Lowry is also excellent.  If the Knicks ever saved a draft pick we could have gotten in on that.
  • White and Copeland can play D.
  • Amar’e still can’t.
  • I’m really happy I drafted Bargnani
  • When Melo is off no one picked up the scoring load.  This could be a recurring problem throughout the season.
  • Not that Toronto is going to be great, but there are zero BAD teams in the Atlantic division for the first time since I can remember.
  • Someone other than Chandler needs to crash the boards.

Brewer Close to Returning

It’s been reported that Ronnie Brewer is close to returning, and my in fact return to practice today.  Amar’e is also supposed to return to the starting lineup for Fridays game against the Raptors.  Knicks fans may actually get to see the starting lineup in action before the regular season starts.  Should we be excited that the Knicks starting lineup may be in tact by Friday or depressed that having all of our starters play in the same game is exciting news?

Knicks @ The Cleveland Tankers 4/20/12 – Game thread

Stat is starting, Fields is not, Walking is waived, Gadzuric is signed.  Never a dull moment for the Knicks.  Hopefully we’ll continue our quest for the 6th seed.  Orlando is a mess right now, but their magic number is only 2 and they have a game against the Bobcats, so every game is really important now.

Knicks Roster Mid-Season Grades

Grades:

Carmelo Anthony – B:  He played too much iso-ball in the beginning of the season, but since coming back from his injury has been making a huge effort to move the ball around.  His shot is way off right now but we expect him to look more like himself after the all-star break.

Mike Bibby – F:  I know he’s getting old and he’s lost a step, but how did he forget how to shoot and pass as well?  We had to play shooting guards at the point because he was too bad to play more than five minutes.

Tyson Chandler – A: Exactly what we wanted when we signed him. Excellent defender, low post presence and when a good PG is playing can be a factor on offense too.  He’s currently leading the league leader in field goal percentage.  Needs to calm down on techs or he’s going to be suspended for a number of games in the second half.
