The Knick Effect 2011/12

So last year we noticed that it seems like every game someone is getting a season high against the Knicks.  I decided to see if this is true and kept a running list I called the Knick Effect.  It turns out 37 players had their best or second best game against the Knicks last season.  This season we got the 2nd best defensive center in the league.  It doesn’t seem like it’s made that much of a difference, 44 entries this time.  So without further ado here is the 2011/12 Knick Effect:

12/25 – Rajon Rondo – 31 points
12/25 – Brandon Bass – 20 points
12/28 – Brandon Rush – 19 points
12/29 – Jason Kapono – 9 points
12/31 – Jason Thompson – 13 points
1/4 – Boris Diaw – 27 points
1/12 – Rudy Gay – 26 points
1/14 – James Harden – 24 points
1/16 – J.J. Redick – 21 points
1/16 – Ryan Anderson – 30 points
1/18 – Steve Nash – 26 points
1/18 – Shannon Brown – 14 points (tied for best)
1/20 – Brandon Jennings – 36 points
1/20 – Shaun Livingston – 18 points
1/21 – Danilo Gallinari – 37 points Continue reading

Jay and Marc recap the last two games vs. the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat and talk about what to expect in the Detroit Pistons game.  We try to figure out who is going to play if Chandler, Stoudemire and Williams are all out, what happens in practice, if Mozgov is ready to get some minutes again, and if Roger Mason is going to hit a shot to double his shooting percentage.  We go over some ridiculous Miami Heat articles and top it all off with an interview with Stan from  Download Episode 32
