Game 40: Knicks vs. Clippers, 7pm

The New York Knicks (15-24) host the Los Angeles Clippers (27-13) at Madison Square Garden at 7pm.

Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert,Carmelo Anthony, Andrea Bargnani, and Tyson Chandler will start for the Knicks. Amar’e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin will not dress after they both suffered sprained ankles last night against the Pacers. Mike Woodson said that Jeremy Tyler and/or Cole Aldrich will have to play now.

For the Clippers, Darren Collison, JJ Redick, Jared Dudley, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan are expected to start. They are beginning they’re GRAMMY road trip with this game, so expect a lot of energy. And for the Knicks sake, hopefully not anything like this:

@JADubin5 Woodson says of Tyson-Bargnani pairing, which entered tonight with a DRTG of ~117, “I don’t think it’s hurting us” defensively.



LMaoooooo WHAT??? Woodson is CLUELESS.


Their offensive rating is 98.5... that's a net of -18.2. You're going to loose alot of games with those ratings.

Just wondering if we get thumped by the Nets on MLK Day, will it be the impetus Dolan needs to make some type of move.

The Clippers aren't that good. All they do is score on layups, dunks, and open shots. If they took tough, contested shots like we do, we probably would have beat them.

I thought JVG had a good suggestion about trading Chandler. Maybe see if we can flip him for a young guard. It's very difficult to win consistently when ur starting 2 guard only plays well in Texas

I cant stand mike woodson. Just excuse after excuse. Take the blame.

Point Guards that cannot pass, Shooting Guards that cannot shoot, Big Men that are tissue paper soft, Coaches that have no idea how to coach, Management that couldn't manage a lemonade stand... these are the Knicks we are resorted to.

Poor Aldrich.  He can't even get in a game like this, with two big men out

No point guard and no coach equals a bad team.   They should fire Woodson and trade Chandler for a good point guard.  Unless they take action watching and rooting is a going to be very  difficult.

Doesn't Anthony have a bad ankle?  How can you leave him out there in a game like this?


Stupid doesn't even begin to describe it.

@ExpectTheWorst ok, It was funny for a minute. You spend your days and nights cutting and pasting and storing Biggie's posts for days like today.  


Please consider the other folks on here and give your personal vendetta a break

@knickfan2 It's just a bad situation. This team needs some TNT put to it.

@C0P0 

They are being placed in more suitable roles.  Here we ask non-defenders/rebounders (Bargnani) to protect the rim and rebound, non-shooters (Raymond, Shumpert) to space the floor, and non-facilitators (JR) to create for teammates.

Rather than construct a team where Carmelo can finish plays like he was during the Olympics, we have to ask him to bring up the ball, create plays out of nothing, and bail out his teammates like he's Lebron.

Hard to root for a team with no identity.  Team's a mix of 1-way players, all of them freelancing on different pages of the playbook.
