Final Score: Kings 106, Knicks 101

The Knicks were defeated by the Kings by a score of 106-101 tonight at MSG.

The Least You Should Know

I wrote a long recap about how the Knicks won tonight in a blowout. A bad Kings team. They lose to everyone. And we just lost to another bottom 5 team last week in Milwaukee, so we are taking care of business out the gate tonight.

I edited it so that it included how the team lost a 12 point second half lead but found a way to win. Or not to lose. We suck, but at least we don’t suck as bad as them.

I’m not rewriting it to commemorate that loss. To the Kings. At home. When they played all of OT without DeMarcus Cousins.

Mike Woodson, get the hell out of my life.

Love ya,

BK

“I just don’t see the Knicks making up any games or going on an eight-, nine-game winning streak,” Miller had told The Post Tuesday, when he was asked if he thought the Knicks would make the playoffs this year. Most presciently, he had this to say:

“They’re losing at home, they’re losing to a lot of sub-.500 teams.”

OK it's settled the reason we lost was because JR Smith did NOT play... He is needed.

There are 3 possibilities With this team.

Eaither

A. Their coasting their way into the playoffs.

B. Melo is truly the cancer and STILL has something to prove on a "individual player level"

Or C. We stink.

What say you tkb?

Why hasn't management just come out and say Woodson is going to coach out the season and put everyone out of their misery already? 


The only reason you wouldn't is because everything is on the table and Woodson's job status is not secure as you would think.

Wasn't it not long ago that some of you were happy with small ball and was blaming AB for our losing?

Lebron looks like he wants that MVP. He's been playing like a man on a mission.

@OLDKNICK  The owner and the coach think the same, very slowly

melo has already proven what he can do individualy.He just hasnt proven he can make teams better....and yes,he is still the selfish,self centered prik that got Dantoni to quit,and drove Lin to Houston

@Jerry Gee  because the Seahawks outplayed them in every facet of the game...no conspiracies please

@Jerry Gee Lin must love it that he lives rent free in your head. It's done. Gone over. let it go. Let's dislike this org for the myriad of stupid things they do. Lin's loss being amongst many, of course, since Bargs eats a big slice of tax space. We can agree. I just let that episode behind me.

@Jerry Gee Shut up about Jeremy Lin already, jeez.  Every angle has already been covered, he's been gone for years, get over it.  It's not like we'd be a contender now if he stayed...

@Jerry Gee  

Lin did the right thing for him and his family by signing that contract the Rockets gave him...I would have done the same thing.

However, it would have been a bad deal for us...because of the $15 mill next year.

@xmenreturn  Not me...extra small ball has never won a championship.  Miami does not play 2 6 foot PG in their backcourt.  It is not like they have Chalmers and Norris as their starting guard.

@lindro88 He just wants to win another ring. That ain't nuthin man, We got the 62 pt game man!

Really? No other coach can handle the team as well as Mike is handling them?

@Knicks_Fanatic @rkj473  That was early on, when Woodson should have initially been fired. I'm talking about the All-star break now, just reiterate your commitment to him.


I think that is more telling than anything. Early in the season, they were quick to stick by Woodson. But he has gone from bad, to down-right abysmal.

@VerySilentJay @rkj473  It's such a dumb strategy because the players are just as curious as the fans are. They all understand what's going on.

@zdiddy4nyk I hear ya but some where here saying AB was the problem!  I think there's enough problem to go around in the organization.

Jerry, please. Denver scored 8 points. That game was over after Thomas, and Welker were lit up after making catches over the middle. The Hawks scored on Defense and Special Teams as well. They could have had Von Miller, Dumervill, Watt and throw in another big name defender, and they still weren't winning.

Jerry's desperate to come up with something interesting. Thats the stupidest post of all time on any blog in the history of the internet.

Are you joking? If they lost 38-35, maybe you could argue about Von Miller the best LB in the NFL missing. Dumervill? Lol. 43-8.

Oh please. Elvis Dumervill wasn't the difference in a 43-8 loss.

Forget dumervil he couldn't score for them

Melo played with a torn labrum. What does that say about you and your basketball knowledge? Regardless if it felt better, he played with a torn labrum. Indiana was the better team, but the Knicks were banged up in that series.

@rkj473 My sources has told me that Woody has an "I have a dream clause" in his contract which means he can't be fired on black history month.  Come march, we can throw him out on his Mr. Potato Head though!

@zdiddy4nyk

AB, K-Mart and Carmelo won 5 games in a row together before Woodson put TC back in when he came back. It was all down hill from there!

@xmenreturn @zdiddy4nyk  

Exactly...Woody needs to take that weak style of basketball to Indiana University or some other college team.

I am only interested in a playoff basketball system....PERIOD!!

@zdiddy4nyk Yep that is why I stated during the playoffs that Woody should not be our coach.  It's about playing such a way to excel in the playoffs.

@xmenreturn @zdiddy4nyk  

I only care about playing the way that can beat playoffs team.  This college type extra small ball makes me sick to my stomach.  That crap is not NBA basketball!!

zdiddy4nyk
zdiddy4nyk

@xmenreturn @zdiddy4nyk  

True...However, extra small ball is not beating any playoff team.

Therefore, why waste time playing a style that can compete with playoffs teams like Indy, Bulls, Nets, Miami, etc

xmenreturn
xmenreturn

@zdiddy4nyk Yep the problem was much deeper than AB.  Honestly, we haven't won at an rate to prove any theory as being the answer other than Woody sucks a coach.

@xmenreturn @zdiddy4nyk  

Barg played a few games with Chandler and Melo.  Chandler was out so many games...I don't know why people think, it couldn't work without giving it more time.
