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.
