Due to Scheduling Miscommunication Knicks Accidentally Thought They Had the Night Off

  • I think our listener Niro put it best when he said “There were two games this season that just disgusted me. The Houston game and the Houston game.”
  • I understand the Knicks were without Melo, Sheed, Shumpert, Amare and Camby, but they weren’t scheduled to be without Defense, good shooting, controlling the pace and taking care of the ball too.
  • There is a lot of talk about Lin and Harden not being able to play together, but they combined for 394,402,134 points on 97% shooting tonight (approximately) so maybe we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.
  • At least Chandler Parsons didn’t light the Knicks up again.
  • Copeland got 9 quick points to start the 3rd quarter and for a second I thought the Knicks were going to make a comeback, but then the Knicks decided it would be a good idea to let Harden shoot open 3’s the rest of the night.
  • I started this recap 5 minutes ago when the Knicks were down by 20 and they are now down by 27.
  • JR, I love when you go to bed early and have a great shooting game the next day, but can you try and make that happen in a game where you’re good shooting would actually make a difference?
  • I’m really glad the Knicks don’t have to play Houston again for at least 11 more months.
  • 10-1 at home is still really darn good.
  • Another positive is we can start to prepare for Copesanity.  He had a career high 29 points on 11-19 shooting.

Knicks Bench Beat the Cleveland D-Leagers

  • Chris Copeland started instead of Carmelo Anthony.  This is one of the few teams where the previous sentence still ends with a win.
  • Three players on the Cavs were wearing face masks.  What the hell is going on in Cleveland?
  • Even when Kidd’s shot isn’t falling (which was pretty much only today) he’s doing so many other things on the court it’s really amazing to watch.
  • Kyrie Irving had 41-5-5.  Imagine what he’d do with a team of actual NBA players.
  • What I learned from this game is that Luke Walton is still alive.
  • The Knicks only had 10 players suited up for this game.  They are 18-5 with 3-5 players injured every game.  Will this team be downright deadly when everyone is back?  Will everyone ever be back?
  • After the run the Knicks went on in the 2nd quarter I never felt worried about this game, even when the Cavs made it a 1 point game in the final minute.  That’s the kind of season the Knicks are having so far.  I have complete confidence in their ability to not have a meltdown against a bad team.
  • All that being said I REALLY REALLY hope Melo comes back for Mondays game.

The Knicks Get Their Asses Kicked

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:

  • The defense was so bad tonight.  Harden and Lin were able to drive to the lane at will and Asik seemed to be able to be able to hide behind Chandler and get wide open for offensive rebounds and easy layups.  You’re not going to win if you give up 72 points at the half.
  • Chandler Parsons:  13-17 for 31 points.  Are you kidding me?
  • Carmelo Anthony was on fire in the first half, hitting 6 of 7 from 3 point land and had 24 points.  He ended up with 37, but also had 7 turnovers and about 5 pouter plays (where he pouts and lets the other team score).  He never gets a call and that has to be frustrating, but the pouter plays are unacceptable.  Taking contested 1 on 5 3-pointers isn’t the best of strategies either.
  • Steve Novak came out of his slump tonight.  Glad he snapped out of his funk, but could he have picked a worse game to shoot decently?  Continue reading
