The Knicks Make Seattle Second Guess Asking For An NBA Team

  • The game started with the Knicks down 13-3 and it looked like one of those sluggish starts that the Knicks seem to be having just about every game lately.  Them Amare came into the game and the Knicks instantly rallied to finish the quarter up by 5.  It was downhill for Sacramento from then on as the Knicks ended up going up by 50 points.  Yes, 50 points.
  • Carmelo Anthony ended his streak of 31 straight 20+ point games, falling 2 short of the franchise record.  He finished the game with 9.
  • Tyson Chandler had his 2nd straight game with 20 rebounds.  Ties Camby for the franchise record.
  • Amare Stoudemire went 10 for 10, one shy of the franchise record for most shots without a miss.  He’s been so good on offense lately, just a pleasure to watch.  Two months ago me would be amazed at how excited present day me is to see Stoudemire enter the game.
  • I bet everyone in Seattle who is watching tonight is real psyched for the franchise they are getting.
  • In a game where the Knicks won by 39 how the hell did Ronnie Brewer still manage to have a plus/minus of minus 10?
  • If Miami loses to Toronto tomorrow the Knicks will have the #1 seed and Mike Woodson will be coaching the all star game.
  • 2nd game in a row with over 30 assists and the Knicks also outrebounded the Kings by 22.

The Knicks Prove Their Lack of Desire for the #1 Seed

  • The lack of effort in this game by everyone not named Amare was disgusting.
  • JR Smith final line, 0-8, 0 points, 4 turnovers, +/- of minus 16.  Thanks for putting to rest the debate of whether you should have made the all-star team.
  • Ed Malloy was the ref tonight, but he had no effect on the Knicks, this was all on them.
  • Jrue Holiday had a career high.  Knickeffect.
  • Amare Stoudemire had 20 points on 8-13 shooting and some nice defensive plays.  Too bad it was wasted on this shit show of a game.
  • Philly starters outscored Knicks starters 89-40.
  • This had better be a continuity issue that will resolve itself soon or else the Knicks have big problems as this is the healthiest they have been all year.
  • What happened to the defense from the 1st month of the season?  Wasn’t Shumpert coming back supposed to make the Knicks even more potent on defense?
  • Ronnie Brewer looked great the 2.5 seconds he played tonight.

Episode 164: Stoudemire Too – Judgement Day

Robert Silverman from Knickerblogger.net joins us today.  Amare comes back and it goes about as well as expected.  What happened to the Knicks defense?  Ronnie Brewer and Steve Novak aren’t playing like they did in November and early December.  Is Felton more important than we realized?  Trying to figure out why the Knicks don’t look like the same team they did only a month ago.  Much more.  Download Episode 164

Knicks vs Kings – 12-28-12 – Game Thread

Everyone on the Knicks is injured.  Lets hope this is a blowout so Prigs can play a lot of minutes and save some wear and tear on Kidd, since he’s going to be playing a ton of minutes in January.  Other things to look for are Camby continuing to progress, Brewer getting out of his terrible slump (26% from the field and 6% from 3 point land this month).  Comment below as the game progresses.

Ho-Hum, Knicks Win Again, Knicks 8-1, What did you expect?

The New Orleans Hornets have some young and really good players including Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis. Those guys didn’t play tonight so the Hornets pretty much had no chance. To their credit, the Hornets kept it close for two quarters and it was kind of like when you played your older brother in basketball growing up. There were times when your older brother took it easy and you hit some shots but then he would realize the score was too close and lower the boom down on you. There was never a point tonight when you thought Hornets had a chance. The Knicks teams of the last few years would have blown a trap game like this or at least kept you on the edge of your seat way too long. This team does not do that. I love this team. Here are my thoughts:

  • Do you think at half time Woodson told his team a win by less than 10 points is basically a loss?
  • The Knicks are 8-1 despite playing the toughest schedule in the NBA. Enough said.
  • The Knicks won by 22 tonight and the game didn’t even look that close for most of the second half.
  • The Hornets scored 31 points in the 2nd quarter. They only scored 32 points the rest of the game. Continue reading

The Knicks Bounce Back by Bashing the Pacers

Don’t look too sad, at least you’re filthy rich!

  • I thought we were in for a long afternoon when Joey Crawford gave Mike Woodson a technical 90 seconds into the game.  Some bad calls, but fortunately the Pacers can’t score so it didn’t matter.
  • Speaking of Joey Crawford, I don’t think it’s a good thing when your max contract center runs like a 61 year old ref.
  • It’s definitely not a good thing when he also scores 6 and 8 with 6 turnovers.
  • It’s really really not a good thing when that isn’t far off from his season average.
  • Carmelo attacked the rim all game, even though he was stopped most of the time.  He also followed up his shots which resulted in a few offensive rebounds.  I like the aggression.
  • Raise your hand if you thought Rasheed would be playing 15-20 minutes a night.  Keep your hand up if you thought that would be a good thing.
  • Camby is still not in game shape.  Far from it.  He looks like he’s walking waste deep in oatmeal. Continue reading
