|Three games, three different starting lineups, three losses. The Knicks are now 1-6. Lets see who is playing well and who isn’t.
||Last weeks Rank
||Barrett is the only player on this roster that hasn’t been a disappointment so far. I guess Fizdale feels the same way, he’s played JR 39 and 41 minutes the last two games.
||Slow start to the season but had very good games against the Celtics and Kings. Maybe this’ll be the start of a nice run for him.
||Robinson only had one foul against the Magic, but for some reason only played 19 minutes. Fizdale is making some weird decisions.
||Portis looked decent the two games he came off the bench. When he started against the Kings he looked terrible.
||Every time I get excited about Knox he has a game like he did against the Kings. At least he’s showing some signs of improvement.
||Randle has been a big disappointment so far. He’s been getting a lot of assist, but has a ton of turnovers and surprisingly has had two straight games in which he scored 8 points. I think he’ll be much better when Payton comes back as playing point forward is clearly not working.
||Knicks nation seems pretty split on Frank. Here’s my take. He’s not a PG. He dribbles the ball over halfcourt, hands it off, and hides in a corner. The Knicks have no true PG currently playing and it’s making the entire team worse.
||Taj played 9 minutes this week and didn’t look terrible. That’s good enough for 8 this week which is sad.
||Ellington is averaging a career low 3pt%. Have to think lack of a PG has something to do with that.
||With the state of the Knicks backcourt right now why is Dotson not playing?
||We had an Iggy sighting. Congrats on getting your first NBA points Iggy!
||Payton needs to come back soon. A month ago I never would have predicted needing to type this.
||No Trier all week.
||Smith Jr., Dennis
||I’d like to see Smith come back and get some serious minutes for a little while just so we can come to a concensus about his ability to make it in the NBA.
||Still waiting on Allen’s first appearance.
