No one is advocating Anthony taking 12 three-pointers per game, but the Knicks will be far better off if he is doing a lot more catching and shooting, and a lot less holding, waiting, dribbling, pumping and forcing.
The old adage turned out to be true: You never know what you truly have until you lose it. Welcome back, Raymond Felton.
Whatever they do, the Knicks’ success will be determined by how they control Rondo. In many ways, their success this season will be determined by how they control the opponent’s quick guards off the dribble.
I haven’t done this in a while, so here’s a look at the good, the bad and the ugly from this year’s final regular-season edition of the Knicks-Nets rivalry.
The dog days of January and February are when the season can be decided, and the Knicks are at a crossroads which will dictate whether they are a two seed or a five seed. If they play like they did against Detroit, you have to like their chances.
Thursday is an exciting day for Knicks fans — not only because the team is playing in London against the Pistons.
If I went in-depth on all of the Knicks’ problems you’d be looking at a 10-page dissertation. The list is that long. But the Knicks have only one game in seven days, and this is valuable time that should be used to get things right.
This is a “show me” game for the Knicks that could be a decent preview of what their playoff success might look like.
The Knicks’ defense has been getting worse by the week, and Mike Woodson isn’t helping things. If the switching continues, the Knicks will find themselves giving up 100 points or more in many games the rest of the season.
Garnett baited Anthony like no one else in the league can, and Melo responded by biting down on the hook like an untested rookie who forgot he was playing in the NBA and not on some playground in Baltimore.
One characteristic we have seen this Knicks team show several times this season is their ability to rise to the occasion. They haven’t done it every time, but many times when the Knicks see a top opponent in front of them they play their best basketball.
There was a lot of paper and ink wasted Wednesday morning on stories about Amar’e Stoudemire. But what about the real issue?
But in truth, perhaps the biggest difference maker of them all this year has been Jason Kidd. He looked washed up last year, but at some point in the offseason he either found the Fountain of Youth or built a DeLorean.
On December 2, Felton bruised his left hand against the Suns. Then, on December 13, he bruised his right hand against the Lakers. His Christmas gift from Santa on Tuesday was a sprained ligament on the pinky finger of his shooting hand. He’s a mess.
It’s up to Amar’e Stoudemire to fit into a Knicks team that is doing fine without him.
