The defense on that play was just atrocious for many reasons and that is one.   Brain fart loss.

Doncic averaging close to a 30 Pt triple double:
28.7 / 10.3 / 9.3.  His PER is 30.6


I probably should have put Knick Trivia in the NBA thread.

Answers:

Best Knick FT Shooters:
1. Jose Calderon 88.8%
2. Mike Glenn     88.6%
3. Kiki V             88.6%
4. Courtly           88.1%
5. The Dentist     88.1% (Steve Novak)

Most FTA's as a Knick with 80% or better FT%:
1. Carl Braun    3,457   @ 80.4%
2. Kenny Sears  2,736   @ 82.5%
3. Melo Tone     2,613   @ 83.0%
4. Al Houston    2,338    @ 87.2%
5. Willie Nauls   2,139    @ 81.9%
6. Early Pearl     2,117    @ 82.1%

So a hand for the old-timers.
Probably helped by less player movement, staying with the team longer.

Spree 8th; Craw 9th, Howard Komives 10th (and the last with more than 1000 FTA's and over 80% in.

It's hard to comprehend.

Leading by two with some 3 seconds left after a timeout they let the shooter who had made 8 fucking three pointers that night take one more to end the game.

"You never want to lose any game, but especially when you got a solid lead. But give them credit," Knicks coach David Fizdale said. "They turned up their defense on us and they really shot the heck out of that 3 ball. I mean, 17 for 48 from 3. That's pretty impressive. And obviously the last one was the backbreaker."

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf: career 90.5% FT with 1,161 FTA's.

So lower the threshold slightly (from 1200) and he's the career leader.

It's funny, I often cringed at Fizz-speak throughout last year.
Now it seems everybody is mocking his platitudes and positive bromides.

17 of 48 from three is NOT FUCKING IMPRESSIVE, coach!  Its 36 per cent.  Hundreds of games this year will be better.

Allowing them to TAKE 48 is totally ludicrous.  LEARN THIS, then come and get re-graded.

I don't think he believes in fouling there.

How many minutes in the 4th?

Don't be lazy -- look it up if you want to know.
Jr. Smith came in just under the 5 min mark in the 3Q.
Committed 2 fouls and missed 2 shots.
Gets pulled with 1 min left after getting his 5th foul.

Conventional wisdom is you don't bring a guy in with 5 fouls in the 4Q until past midway through.  And it's not like he was hot, having missed last 2 FG's.  Jr. Smith comes back in first stoppage under 5 mins left in 4Q.  Seems pretty standard stuff.

Franc back in 1:12 presumably for defense, trying to close out the game. 

Kill Fizz for genuine mistakes, not bog standard foul management.

The only positive
« Reply #8697 on: Today at 02:58:06 AM »

After the blow outs last week at least this week we went into the 4th quarter either tied (Bulls, Mavs) or leading by 1 (Hornets) in all three games.  We have trouble closing games.  No one really too surprised about that except maybe Perry/Mills. 

Who, when the game is close late, do you trust with the ball in their hands on this team?


Marcus Morris hit that three the other night.   But tonight we make him the inbounds guy and have Julius do it?
