I don't think the opponent matters anymore...it's all about how we play.

22 is better than 21. You have to think small and get joy from little things.

Kevin Love left the bench early to walk off the court as soon as this game ended. It be like that sometimes.

Remember how Melo got angry when we lost to Philadelphia and Milwaukee?

That's how Love's feeling now. We are that team.

@XpectTheWorst @C0P0  They kept a lock on Love. That was defense. What game were YOU watching?

@firebaldy @C0P0  I've already run them across the coals for an entire season, including Pre-Season. Deservedly so. Still, it won't kill me to give them credit for winning a f'n game. Especially the kind they'd normally lose.

@firebaldy @C0P0  Don't worry baldy won't be back. I'm just tired of watching them lose.

@XpectTheWorst @Kiyan Carter  I'm happy with my life, so you don't have to worry about that. The Knicks played D on a guy who is a walking D-D, had good offense and Felton showed some good play and all anyone can do is complain.

YOU need to enjoy the win and STFU.


All you MF do is complain even when there's a win.  LOL

@XpectTheWorst @C0P0  Right. 

Because NORMALLY we've been keeping teams under 80. 

We won because we got stops and didn't allow the runs to continue. 


Knicks defense got Rubio to get 6 turnovers,  Love missed 11 of his 17 shots, Fatboy got 18pts-8asts-4 steals. Chandler had 15pts and 14 boards. 2 players who haven't played very well the entire season. I've been dogging them, so now I'll give them a biscuit. 


Knicks suck but I can give them their credit for getting the "W"and not turnover down the stretch like they normally do.

@Sandro @C0P0  Ok. I will give them credit when they deserve it.

The rim kept a lock on Love. He was 6-17.
