We won two games one against the utah jazz and a sleeping twolves team. We have been down this road many times. That lineup can be exploited so badly on the defensive end. Obviously, it's nice we won 2 in a row but that lineup has a lot to prove. We have a long way to go. One at a time.

Teams are overwhelmed by the Chandler,STAT,Melo,JR,Felton lineup 

we'll probably fvck around and squeak into the 8th spot if we can keep the wave up.

Time to revisit trade for Atlanta's Jeff Teague with new trade bait: Felton & JR. Atlanta is losing like us, so maybe trade demands are less than before. Side note; Watching Rondo spank the Nets makes me wonder how great a pick & roll would be with Amare.

Daily news reports when the game started someone yelled "Fire Dolan".  We need to keep the pressure up by going to the rally. Even Dolan must not like when he becomes the focus of complaints.

Two wins, one against the terrible Utah Jazz, and people are posting about getting excited about this lineup. Every garbage team in every sport wins two games in a row at some point. How about winning 10 in a row. Let's see them do that.

Indy has really fallen off recently.

We analyze, so called experts analyze, but what does it all mean? How many called for Woodson to go to the small lineup because that's "what worked last year"? How many said Tyson and Amare couldn't play together because they both clogged up the lane? How many said Carmelo and Amare couldn't play together? How many said JR couldn't start because he needs to be the 6th man? Meanwhile, all those things are working right now. By the way, I'm as guilty as anyone else. But it makes you crazy if you think about it.

It is also nice to see Melo and Stat starting games together.

A nice streak right now would go a long way, getting my interest back in this season.  I am not getting overly excited here but -- this starting lineup is WAY better.  Good to see them win the first quarters for a change.

Traditional lineup.....idiot. If he would of started this type of lineup against the Pacers guarantee we would of fared better in that series. Stupid lineup almost costed us against Boston once Pierce started to get going. We lucky he was off

Can't remember the last time the Knicks won in Cleveland, not expecting it tomorrow, the best thing this team does is flounder after a good win

Jazz Blog Highlights!!

"Tyrone Corbin and Mike Woodson champion some strange form of 'traditional' basketball that is a halfcourt, grind it out game where poor defending small forwards start at power forward."

"Amare seems rejuvenated"

"lol @ the Knicks thinking adding Bargs was a good idea"

"Carmelo 1st quarter estimated PER 70.65"

"Melo is having one of his nights.

No one is going to stop him except Woodson when he takes him out of the game."

"Melo just eating the crap out of Marvin"

@tifoso6  That's why he has that strict media policy. He doesn't like the light shined on him!

@Marko polo  hell yeah you mad late man but it's all good. next week he's going to make his decision. it's going to feel like an eternity.

They fell off when they messed with the teams chemistry. Bringing in Evan Turner was a bad idea. Lance hasn't been as good. I said it would effect him and the team. I'd love to see some team like Washington or Toronto pick them off in the 2nd rd. B

@brookdon  

Shame, I was hoping they'd be the team the 8-seeded Knicks would take out.  Then again, Miami would bring back memories...

lol exactly. And as soon as it works everyone claims the idea. But when it doesn't, it falls on the coach. Thankless job.

With the way JR shot that series? Same result.

Lol one of our last hopes I didn't think they would offer him a front office position he's gotta bite on it

I doubt the knicks wait another year to get a new head coach. We can always trade for him to come here. I can see that happening for sure.
