A Scoring Comparison

A big thanks to Patrick for making these charts. So we’ve been talking about how the Knicks offense is predictable when Melo and/or JR is on the floor and stagnant when they are off.  And this chart would be even more skewed if you consider Amare missed 53 games last season.  This breakout of team scoring pretty much sums that up:

Knicks vs Jazz – 3-9-13 – Game Thread

Who will get tonights #Knickeffect?  Who will score now that Melo and Amare is out?  Will JR take more than 50 shots tonight?  Comment below as the game goes on

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.

Carmelo’s Quote from Knicks Media Day

“I don’t want that (scoring) role anymore. I can do it. It is what it is, that’s what I do best. But in order for this team to be successful with the guys that we have on this team right now, we need a more well-rounded team. So if I have to sacrifice doing some things out there on the offensive end I’m willing to do it.” – Carmelo Anthony

B.  What he thinks we want to hear but in reality we’ll get Iso-Melo again.
C.  Anthony is now not going to try on both ends of the court.
D.  Other
