“We’re frustrated,” Smith said. “It’s too early to panic. But me, personally, I’m panicking. I don’t like this. I don’t want to play 3-8 basketball.”
Change is coming. A move is on the horizon. Odds are, Mike Woodson is going to find himself on the wrong side of it. And right now that would be completely understandable.
“Got to figure it out,” Melo said after New York’s third straight loss Tuesday. “That’s the only thing I can say about this. We’ve got to figure it out quick.”
The conversation was not limited to just the Knicks, as Barry showed his fiery side and got into it a little bit with Craig, who fancies himself a ‘basketball savant’…
The Knicks are playing not only against their opponents, but a timer that will hit zero at a time of Dolan’s choosing. When it does, all New York fans will feel the pain.
The Knicks admitted they didn’t play with defensive intensity or a fighting spirit, which is far worse than just playing poorly.
Asked if it was tough that the Knicks sent Harden to the line often when they got close, Melo replied, “We didn’t put him on the line, they put him on the line.”
James Harden scored 36 points in his return to the lineup and the Houston Rockets withstood Carmelo Anthony’s 45 points to beat the Knicks 109-106 Thursday night.
There is a growing, ornery murmur among New Yorkers, and, really, it goes to the source. It’s directed at Jimmy Dolan. People are sick of his moves, his mouth and his product.
Considering the way former Knick Jeremy Lin has been playing, the Rockets might not need James Harden to turn things around when they seek their 16th win in 17 games against New York.
Carmelo Anthony continued his success against Atlanta by scoring 25 points and the Knicks regrouped after blowing a 17-point lead to beat the Hawks 95-91 on Wednesday night.
The ball movement has either been nonexistent or turnover prone. Until that changes, and the Knicks’ best players start to shoot better, there’s going to continue to be rough basketball at MSG.
The Spurs took advantage of the Knicks, as coach Mike Woodson counted 17 layups in New York’s 120-89 loss on Sunday.
J.R. Smith’s return from suspension couldn’t prevent the Knicks getting thumped by the Spurs 120-89.
Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly met with head coach Mike Woodson following Sunday’s blow out loss to the Spurs.
