Game 29: Knicks vs Raptors, 7:30pm

Raptors at Knicks

 

At 7:30pm at Madison Square Garden, the Knicks (9-19) host the Atlantic Division leading Raptors (11-15) in the first half of a home and home.

Beno Udrih, Iman Shumpert, JR Smith, Andrea Bargnani, and Tyson Chandler will start. Iman Shumpert has a contused thigh and is a game-time decision. In the event he cannot start, Kenyon Martin will start at the 4 and JR Smith will slide over to the 2.

Carmelo Anthony is out with the sprained ankle that kept him out on Christmas Day. Raymond Felton remains day-to-day with a strained groin. Metta World Peace is a game-time decision with his knee problems.

Gotta love the jr post game interview......he mentioned them being out of shape too.....

We never talk about it. Jr is god awful on defense....

Bye bye melo.....hello dark years

This team would be far better with Copeland, Novak and THjr draining threes all night with Melo forcing double teams instead of JR 35% FG performance on a nightly bases

KNicks really shot them selfs by letting Copeland walk and trading Novak, What they shouldve done is let JR walk and signed Copeland and kept Novak

Shumpert is all potential and no results. Hardaway is potential and results. 

That's not on Woody. I'd trade Shumpert.

The problem with this team is 2 things first offensive FG% Knicks are among the bottom in that department and 2nd defense in the paint. We allow TONS of points in the paint.


Besides that Knicks are still 8th in the league in defense. but the offense STINKS! not to mention Melo out lone STAR is leading his ENTIRE team in POINTS, REBOUNDS and ASSISTS!!!

Woody has no answer.

Jr should never be signed to a more than one year deal n he needs a coach who will have a quick hook with him.

The bad thing with jr is that shump is awful right now.

Sag position is awful right now

How about some props to my man Beno? The 3rd string PG who has stepped up very single time Woodrow's dumb and desperate ass needed him? Yet, gets blamed for everything negative...

@moneyball Couldn't get worse looking for some talent down there. 

The so called NBA level talent we have now is ready to challenge the Bayhawks anyway.

@jax13 Time to toss the strength and conditioning coach under the bus.

@ponzies86 But then, they have to play on the other end and there lies the problem. Cope was trying, but Novak was useless. THjr is learning.

@jax13 

You can see it in Bargnani. He just stands around in the 4th when he plays heavy minutes.

@ponzies86 We are total perimeter team and to win we must hit shots all game!  

On defense, we are so bad that the opposing team can make easy baskets in the paint.

Not trying to do that, just want to understand why an nba team is fatigued at this point of an nba season

@moneyball I'd trade him for a guard that averages 5 and 5 at this point. 

He's pretty useless right now.
