I am really happy we won tonite. This win makes up for the Lakers loss, the same way the Pacers win made up for the Cavaliers loss. Hopefully, we will win tomorrow at Utah and brace ourselves for the final stretch!


I am still rooting for our Knicks to make the playoffs eventhough it still remains a long shot. 


Let go Knicks !

"man with the Knicks, it's like they play the defense for you with some of the shots they take"

"who is this Amare

is this the Suns Amare?"

"One of the knicks commentators sounds so happy. It’s like he realizes the entire season has been a joke and is just enjoying it."

"Melo as a Warriors Next year?"

"67% of my complaints about Jackson would be gone if he stopped calling isos regularly"

"You know...

If J.R. Smith had half a brain like he did in Denver, he’d be so much better as a player."

"Carmelo Anthony HERE next year... Yeah in a heartbeat

Lee/Barnes/Speights trade in a heartbeat"

"Barnes is possibly worse than Shumpert"

""Woodson is currently outcoaching Jackson in this game."

"15-0 Knicks run to close the half

Yeah, we’re playoff ready"

"Disgusting coaching

Thanks Mark Jackson.."

""Turned on the game

How are we losing to the Knicks"

"When Melo goes up, don’t contest and just hope he misses

Otherwise it’s a foul"

"6-20 for Melo. The Spirit of Kobe lives!"

"These knicks are actually playing hard on the defensive end"

"There's nothing wrong with everyone knowing your superstar is going to take the last shot.

That’s why they’re superstars, they’re expected to make things happen. Curry just gave up all of his options by leaving his feet and had nowhere to go."

"How did we lose to the Knicks?"

Solid win tonight. JR, STAT, and Priggs were my stars. Even Felton played some D. My only gripe: Melo went into hog mode in the 4th quarter. Otherwise, go Sixers tomorrow!

Tonight in the trail blazers win, Lamarcus Aldridge was a -1. I guess they are better off without him. Dorrel Wright was a +10. I'm sure him and his 1 point pulled in the win.

ok, one of the very few games that i gave them no chance that they actually won, no bogut and no Lee, so lets not go crazy. would it shock anyone if knicks put up a stinker tomorrow night? have to win tomoroow night, and pray sixers feel good after 1 w, maybe they want another.

"Just when I thought I was out . . . they pull me back in"

That run to close the 1st half had me hype.  

And kudos to Ray's defensive effort in the closing minutes.

People upset at Melo for his 4th qtr performance but like plenty of ppl here mentioned many times, i blame Woodson. Melo is getting the ball less than 10secs on the shot clock and forcing him to take tough contested shots.

We need a system where everyone on the court is a threat and have confidence. F++ck Woodson.

I will only look at the positives tonight (there were some negatives esp by Woodson). 


Great win tonight 1 back for 8th but it kinda feel like 2. Melo had a poor game and we still won so ill take this.

@Biggie Can't take that game tomorrow night for granted.  We catch a bit of a break in that Utah was in OKC today.  So both teams are on he back end of a back to back.

Amare, JR, Pablo, THJR & Shumps defense(just don't shoot) all good tonight! MELO was off all night but came through in last few minutes! PS Felton sucks eggs and should never play!

Amare might have had the best game of bis season. He was actually a presence down low on defense and offense

@lobcity So why doesn't Melo pass the ball and let the offense come to him then?   The ball moves when Melo is not in the game.  Melo should be smart to know that!

@Mel Brown @BigChiefTriangle @Kiyan Carter  

To be honest, the fact that Dolan DIDN'T do anything drastic with respect to Woody throughout this rough season actually gives me hope that he will actually let Phil run the show...

Dolan has always been loyal but he usually hitches his wagon to the wrong horse. Not this time - I believe Phil is the right man for this job.

You can't buy a championship in the nba, they have this little rule called a salary cap!

@Kiyan Carter  

It's the perception that the Knicks tried to buy a championship team and instead might end up in the lottery alongside teams like the 76ers and Bucks - but without a draft pick. 

It shows that the organization really has no concept of player valuation if they spend this much on a team that performs so poorly.

Lol that too...even if the Knicks make a little playoff run though, it won't fool Phil.  I trust that.
