- Go with a reduced rotation of say 6 or 7 guys. The Knicks play best when they have a more balanced attack. When they rely too heavily on Amare, Carmelo and Chauncey to carry them they do not win.
- Not move the ball around and have players continually stand around and watch Carmelo and Amare on offense.
- Rely too heavily on the 3 pointer.
- Continually allow opponents second and third chances on offense.
- Allow their opponents too many easy lay-ups
