Meanwhile Donovan Mitchell has about the worst 31 pt game I have seen in a while.

I tuned in with Knix up 11 in Nawlins with just under 7 minutes to play.


Shame, as it was a lot of fun for the first 3.5 quarters.

Mudiay genuinely improving.

Too much Davis.

I'll try to catch a replay.
Though the last promised 11:AM (for you) replay of the OKC never materialized.  Instead MSG was showing people playing cards while listing Knix.

Pels were just missing Melo, that's all.

And speaking of, WASh went 3-18 on 3's and lost at home to BKY.  The scrappy no-name Nets are 7-9.  Looks like a foulathon with the teams combining for 72 FT's.  Dwight went off for 25 & 17 in 27 mins before fouling out.  Wiz dropped to 5-10 and might start thinking about Melo.

Nets replay start an hour earlier than NYK's, and YES is reliable -- if I'm back in time.

Knix next 10 games are all tough.
At least 3 national TeeVee showings.

Mon  Nov 19  @Orlando
Wed  Nov 21  vs Portland    NBATV
Thu   Nov 22  @Boston   
Sat   Nov 24  vs New Orleans
Mon  Nov 26  @Memphis 
Wed  Nov 28  @Detroit
Thu  Nov 29  @Philadelphia   NBATV
Sun  Dec 2   vs Milwaukee
Tue  Dec 4   vs Washington
Fri   Dec 7   @Boston      TNT

MEMf and ORL playing surprisingly well.
the 4 Home games are POR, NOP, MIL and the underperforming WAS who still have much more talent then NYK.
2-8?
Only 3 teams with fewer wins than NYK, but those teams are really bad.  We're scrappy bad.

The upcoming @ORl game looms large, as Knix already on a 4 game skid and the 4 games after that very challenging.  Lose to Magic and could be a 9 game slide and trying to beat DET on the road.

Too much Davis.

Was good to see Mudiay and Burke so dynamic offensively. 

Timmy playing like a bello cow. 

And for the Knicks to come out so focused on defense. 

Our bigs couldn't hang, and that Davis fellow is a Top 5/TOP TIER NBA player, and Holiday's veteran leadership brought home the bacon at crunch time. 

PS: Knox seemed more comfortable at the 4-spot than the three.  Fouls did him in.  That and inexperience.

Missed the 1st half again.
Seems I tuned in the first time with 10:40 left and Knix up 10.

So again I missed Mud, but caught good Burke in the 3Q.
Didn't like his loosey stuff like a behind the back pass, behind the back dribble (stolen), and some other casualness.  But I assume those folks who had him out of the picture, might want to reconsider.  He's a solid scoring backup PG dynamo.

Holiday really amped up his game in the 4Q, especially on D.

When Kanter gets bought out later this year, you guys think he'll look for a starting role with a bad team or a bench role on a playoff team that could use bench scoring?

Is that before or after Mitch hits the rook wall?

It's the Knicks, so the buyout is probably concluded 48 hours before Mitch rolls his ankle and is out for a couple of months (and well after the Knicks decide to keep Baker and not Kornet, when converting Trier).

BakerBoy is out of the rotation even with Courtly in street clothes.
He's our 8th G; 5th SG.
So when we need a roster spot he should be axed and Chop Suey kept on the menu.

Yes (and well worded). But I'm just kind of expecting the worst.

Also, Baker is pretty easy to root for. You want him to succeed.

fizzy is saying the right things.

"“I try to balance it,” Fizdale said. “That’s the tough decisions you got to make. But we know ultimately this season’s biggest, most important thing we do is development. You can’t put anything above that. I do try to respect all of the guys and the situation that they’re in, but our No. 1 priority, I can’t put anything above it, is our player development.”

so he plays guys who may be in  our future and sits guys who are not.

sorry EK.

Perry needs to find out who wants in next year.  In a  perfect storm NY gets KD , a top 5 pick and gets a legit point guard.

the only guy not expendable to me is not playing and sitting in a suit.

We came, we competed, we lost.

The real Question in all these losses.... would we have won if KP were healthy?

Does his defense make the difference?  I hope so.  Because offensively our gunners shot well enough.

Most of the players on tonight's roster that KP would take shots from... actually shot well tonight.

Still don't trust Mudiay
« Reply #2054 on: November 18, 2018, 08:42:06 PM »

Fiz should starts 3 guards who are all a threat to score

Burke
Trier
Tim

Knox or Vonleh at the PF
Mitch or Enes at C
