Was watching the BKY-POR game.
Tangelo pulled a Muddy.
Played a strong game until crunch time when he made lots of mistakes.

End of regulation, Nets up 1 with the ball at 27 secs left.
With 7 on the shot clock, Russ starts making his move, his fancy dribbling gtes away form him and Seth Curry steals the ball.  Two Nets get back and one fouls Scurry for no reason.  But an 85% FT shooter misses the first, makes the 2nd.  Nets heave misses.  OT.

That was an egregious mistake by Tangelo.  But there were more.  around 2:30 left when POR was making a comeback, tangelo again lost his fancy dribble, poked away by Nurk.  Recovers, passes off and immediately demands the ball back.  Loses his handle again and recovers near midcourt where he heaves a 40' to beat the shot clock.  Tangelo made other messes in the OT's as well.

Funny, watching the game I was thinking a big difference is how confident T'angelo appeared.  But he's too confident and goes in for too much razzle when a simple play is needed.  Loves to get fancy.  Which works for him some, but also leads to many mistakes.

The Nurk injury.  I needed to leave, but kept watching the OT's.  Nurk was outworking folks on the glass, tipping a lot of balls.  But the smaller Nets were scrappy and Nurk hit the floor a few times late in the game.  I thought he got injured a few minutes earlier when he got floored.
 
Blazers weren't going far in the playoffs anyway.  But injuries really suck.
Guess we'll see how Kanter does.  Big Op for him, playing for a new contract in the playoffs.  Also, an op for Zach and Myers Leonard to step up.  With McCollum out, Stotts rode Roddy Hood for 43 minutes, which surprised me.

When Nurk went down, he had been fouled, so Nets got to select any active player to shoot his FT's.  They picked little-used rook Anfernee Simons who calmly dropped both in.  in Double OT.  Nice moment.

Yep.  Good player and apparently a good teammate.

Utah and LAC tied with 8 left - looking for 5 slot to avoid Rockets

Spurs - Thunder - same thing (dang - are Thunder really going to be an 8?) - to avoid (likely) Warriors.


And I believe last 8 games for Boston are ultra important.  Not sure they win vs Indy without home court.

Some food for thought (that isnít even all that depressing)

http://theknickswall.com/most-effective-lineups-reveal-about-knicks/


Good read.  For those who skipped it -- the Knicks 2nd best lineup:

Frank, Trier, Dot, Knox, Mitch

All-rookie/sophmores

No vets need apply

  Zion, Morant, Barrett  if we get 4 or above try to move the pick.

I would stay at 4.   There are some decent options there.

Unassisted Dunks
« Reply #5033 on: Today at 06:39:06 PM »

Who leads the Knicks in Unassisted Dunks

1. DeAndre  167 (31 unassisted) 5th overall in total dunks
2. Mitchell     99 (29 unassisted) 21st overall in total dunks
3. Noah V.     39 (19 unassisted) 80th overall in total dunks

The Knicks are the worst assisting team in the league.


If we keep two of these three guys, and add a premier distributor who can assist some more dunks.. with dunks being made at a 90% clip with occasional and1s the Dunk shot attempt is worth almost as much as the three point shot attempt when you talk expected points. And might be the simplest way to improve 6-8 points a game offensively without changing the offense at all.

I will say YES - they will all be here next year

Believe it or not the guy with the best chance to not be is Dotson - off his value and our depth.  But yeah - all 5 could be there for the opener.
