|Just when the Knicks rope you back in with an 8 game winning streak they drop turd of a game by looking heartless against a Kyrie Irvingless Cavs team. Atlanta is giving the Knicks every possible chance to make the playoffs but the Knicks don’t seem to want to capitalize. We’ve reached the final month of the season so lets take a look at what appears to be the roster that will fail to get Melo to the playoffs for the first time in his career. Oh and Earl Clark did not get picked up for the rest of the season (Shannon Brown did) so there are only 14 players on the roster now.
||Last weeks Rank
||I forgot how much I missed super efficient/dominant Amare. No one knows how long this will last but lets all enjoy the ride while we can.
||The look of absolute disgust on Melos face as he watched the bench give up a double digit lead to Philly in three minutes says it all.
||9 assists in 18 minutes against Philly, yes please! Tell me again why he plays half as many minutes as Felton?
||The league leader of putting up decent stats while looking like he doesn’t give a crap. We all know Tyson can do better than 4 points and 6 rebounds against the Cavs.
||Aaaaand just like that JRs shot is gone again. Still, kudos for keeping those bad shots to around 10 a game instead of 20 and for passing the ball better than our starting PG.
||Shumpert doesn’t really put up stats anymore but you can see how much his defense is missed when he’s out. For example the Cavs game.
||Aldrich played about 7 minutes a game this week and not in garbage time. He’s done what you want a backup center to do; rebound and at least try on defense.
||His only appearance this week was the 4 minutes against Philly where the Knicks let up a huge lead. Murry is up this high as a farewell because I’m pretty sure Woodson will blame that on Murry and we’ll never see him again.
||Hardaway Jr., Tim
||It seems like THJ alternates weeks between playing great and sucking. Looking forward to him playing great next week.
||Like Murry, Tylers only action was that epic collapse vs Philly. Welcome to the doghouse. It’s getting crowded in here.
||Felton cannot cover anyone. No one. Look at the PG stats for the opposing team. WTF. Raymond should be required to watch 5 hours of pick and roll film a day until he figures out how to deal with one.
||What can Brown do for you? Not much.
||I saw K-Mart stand up on the bench, so it’s confirmed that he’s not crippled.
||I know it’s not Bargnanis fault the Knicks gave up so much for him but it doesn’t make me any less pissed off.
