Game 41: Knicks vs. Nets, 2:30pm

Screen shot 2014-01-20 at 12.41.23 PM

The Knicks continue their homestand against the crosstown rival Nets today at MSG at 2:30pm.

MLK Day games are a staple for any New Yorker and the Knicks need to bounce back from demoralizing losses against the Pacers and Clippers and snap the team’s current three game skid.

The Knicks’ projected lineup: Melo, Bargnani, Chandler, Felton, Shump.

The Nets’ projected lineup: Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Alan Anderson, Shaun Livingston.

On the injury front, Pablo Prigioni is listed as questionable, while the team is sure to be without Kenyon Martin and Amar’e Stoudermire.

For the Nets, Deron Williams is listed as a game time decision. If he can go, he is likely to slide into Livingston’s spot in the starting lineup.

Oh you KNEW you was gonna see *ME* today!  *Rah's Al Ghul Voice* - Justice is Balance... You came into our house and embarrassed us, now we have repaid you in kind..consider us even.

What do you have to do to get fired? That is what my wife and I discussed today. Note, Melo did not sit on the bench with these bums when DAW finally took him out Mr Dolan. You better do something quickly, this team is in free fall., andI have listened to your coach say he cannot figure it out. He was left with we missed a lot of shots sounding like the last idiot who coached here, DumPhony. So I reiterate my question directly to you Doldrum, when do you fire this idiot and hire a President, a Gm and a Coach that are not yes men to supplant your Napoleon complex and start building the team this town deserves?

So this is what it's come to. Getting blown out by the Nets, a team that not long ago were just as bad as we are...and they lost their starting center for the season to boot. The Nets seemed to have found their way - with a rookie coach no less - and we have completely lost ours. A clueless owner, an invisible GM, a bad coach and players who don't show up all add up to a very, very frustrating season. This will get worse before it gets better I'm afraid. Remember when the Garden used to be a REAL home court advantage? No More.

For someone who is supposed to be a "coach," Woodson is an idiot. During his press conferences he always says things that a "coach" should be able to get his players to do. That's part of your job description as a coach, idiot.

Woodson just said we couldn't make shots 14 times in one answer

The Knicks have become the team that mediocre players set career highs against and injured players come back against from injury. If the Nets were playing the Packers D-Will would've been like "nah I'm going to sit this one out".

Remember the outrage when the Schoen/ESPN model predicted 37 wins for this team? We should be so lucky.

(I guess you could say it was a bad prediction--on the high side.)

I was pissed off that I had to work today until I looked att he box score aftert he game. Thank you for saving me 48 minutes of unwatchable crap.

When the other team has more assists as a team than you had fg's made for the entire game you know someone needs to go RIGHT NOW!!!

The interviews after each loss have become more entertaining then the games themselves. Let me guess what it will be today...."we have to figure it out, we just didn't hit shots, everybody struggle a little bit, it was the early start to the game".

There is no sense of urgency with anyone in this team.

If Woodson is still coach tomorrow I am signing off for the season, that is after 68 years as a fan.   My starting line-up is Melo, Murray, Hardway, Tyler and Aldrich.   Tyler and Alldrich are three times more active than Bargs and Chandler.   Trade the whole team except our starters.  The bargs trade will go down as one

of the worst of all time.   You guys are great fans.  Too bad we have such a lousy owner, GM and coach and

a lot of lousy ballplayers.

Time to blow this team up and get some expiring contacts and picks. Keep THjr and Melo

You know what wouldn't bother me right now...an article from some people close to Melo saying that Melo is threatening the Knicks front office that he is going to leave unless they make some changes. That would show me he cares and might get some people going.

For the love of God will someone put this coach out of his misery? Why were the starters not pulled before 4 min? Why did we have ZERO gameplan against this sorry, aging opponent. Woodson must go. This is just a sad joke at this point

Woodson- We just didn't hit shots. We were tired man. Shump was struggling. BLAH BLAH BLAH. Take the blame. Mike D'antoni all over.

Still the lone highlight of this season was when Dolan's Wikipedia page got hacked. Sad state of affairs.

Disorganized, confused, disinterested from the opening tip-off to the final buzzer.

The silver lining today is that this is happening against Brooklyn which might piss off Dolan enough to order some changes. We're running out of time.

Poor Biggie, he has lost the last 1% credibility he might of had.

Was that foul necessary Williams?

Guards: Felton + 2 of 11, Shump = 2 of 8, JR = 4 of 12, Pablo = 0 of 3.

That's 8 of 34 total.

@JayGreen Brooklyn isn't going anywhere either. After all is said and done both teams will underachieve for this season.

@melo7 He sounds so stupid. A "coach" whose team is playing like garbage yet he doesn't say anything blatant about the team during his press conferences even though everyone else can see it. 


The team has taken on the demeanor of the coach, they just seem disinterested the majority of the time.

@Jerry Gee The Knicks don't believe in themselves for that matter.

@Jerry Gee It's a hard system to believe in...I said last year that I felt we won despite woodson and not because of him...the same problems (schematically) that we have now, existed last season. We were able to cover it up though. Lose and your weaknesses will be exposed further.

@Jaime That was one of AB's great defensive moments. 

What a piece of driftwood that guy can be.

@Jaime I would take Pierce and Garnett over 1/2 the team right now! 


They have heart and know what it is to win!

@buddhabing @JayGreen perhaps...however I see that Brooklyn is on the rise and the Knicks are going in the opposite direction.  However the future remains to written for both teams :-)

@Jaime @rgm891 I don't think this is better than D'antoni. At least we knew his defense was so bad. Woodson a defensive specialist? He would be lucky to be known for anything other than iso.

@JayGreen @buddhabing Brooklyn has smarter players but they are an older team with no draft picks. Knicks are just a badly run mess of an organization. Look for teams like the Wizards and Toronto to be the up and coming franchises while the New York teams wallow in mismanagement and mediocrity.

Jordan doesn't know a thing about running an nba organization (see Biyambo and mkg for details) and even he isn't silly enough to trade us Kenya for Chandler and Felton lol.

@rgm891 @360ProMobile OK. if that brings Griffin and we package Tyson/Felton for a TOP 5 PG like Kemba, Wall or Rubio.. I'll drive him myself! Please bring back Crawford too!
