Game 25: Knicks vs. Bucks, 8:00pm

Knicks at Bucks

 

At 8pm, the Knicks (7-17) play the Bucks (5-19) at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

The Knicks will finally have Tyson Chandler back after he went out on November 5th with a broken fibula. New York’s defense has suffered since his injury. Chandler will be in the starting lineup with Udrih, Shumpert, Smith, and Anthony. Andrea Bargnani will presumably be the first man off the bench.

Amar’e Stoudemire will not play because of swollen knees after playing 5 games in 7 nights. Mike Woodson said he may be back Saturday. Pablo Prigioni suffered a broken big toe against the Wizards, which will push Tour’e Murry into backup PG action.

The Bucks starters are Knight, Antetokounmpo, Middleton, Ilyasova, and Henson. Antetokounmpo is the youngest ever to start for the Bucks at 19 years and 12 days old. He’s the youngest to start in the NBA since Andrew Bynum started the first game of his second season (19 years and 4 days). OJ Mayo will not play since he has been excused for personal reason. Milwaukee has only 9 players active.

FINALLY, my dude Melo Man Ace Boricua hits the dagger three to kill off the Buckshots. Carmelo Anthony exhausted after 50+ minutes does what superstars are supposed to do. Kill off scrub teams with big time, late game shots. Nice to see the team's defense pick up with Chandler in the middle doing what he does best. 


Hopefully, the defense rights the ship so the offense can correct itself. Nice seeing Woodson go old school with the offense/defense subs late in the game. Smart coaching...Red Holzman would have been proud.

Woodson thinks he has scorers.If Melo is off he has none.JR with 17 treys and Woodson did not know.

Chris Herring @HerringWSJ

Woodson said he's not sure what Bargnani was thinking when he took the shot w 11 seconds left after Chandler's rebound.

Chris Herring @HerringWSJ

Woodson said Chandler is OK, but was cramping. "I apologized to him [for playing him so much], but hell, I needed him."

Its amazing. I've seen some of the dumbest coaching and playing ever in just 18 games. All while the team has had two starters and 6 rotation guys go down. Its a confluence of terrible. I'm shocked the team has 8 wins.

Eye opener. It's not just Woodson, some of these players are dumb out there.

Glad we won. But, it's disturbing that this coach decides to sit players when they're in a groove (Metta, THjr). If we can bring in Lowry and a new coach, and either find a way to trade jr or just not play him when he's in garbage mode, than I believe were good to go.

@zippo No Amare, No Felton, No Priggy, and No Kmart. They lost Murry during the game as well. They had to play big minutes tonight. No choice. Aldrich is a scrub.

@Jerry Gee I won't blame the coach for that.  Everyone on the team knew what to do except for Bargs.  he froze.

It's only because Bargnani had the ball. Any of his teammates might have done the same.

@Jerry Gee@OLD_KNICK@orlando_knickfan If you're leading by 2 with 11 seconds left, you don't pump up a three off an offensive rebound with a fresh 24.  One doesn't need a coach to be reminded of that. 


The collective IQ of this team is so embarrassingly low.  Can you imagine what the players from the Knick teams of the early 70's think about these guys?
