I hope Ray can get some rest from Woody's advances.

Woody says we are fighting!  He says he wants us int he playoffs so he can display his playoff coaching expertise.  That means we would have 4 playoffs games to enjoy.... or not!

Something was definitely suspicious about the loss last night. We showcased one of our future teammates---Swaggy P.!

Good win for the Knicks.  Of course nothing ever comes easy for this team, but they finally showed some resilience when the going got tough.  Job well done.


Best game of the season for JR.

The game ball should go to JR. Every time the team was ready to fold up he hit a three.

New Phil Rule starting next game: All players while sitting on the bench are to wear headphones & listen to CLYDES COMMON SENSE GAMETIME OPINIONS on game management or get fined!

Well since I bought league pass I'll continue to watch the Knicks as much as it pains me. Scheme is majority of the issue.

what a relief! I am so glad we won this game.


I thought we were going to blow this one too especially when the lead dwindled to 2 ...

@Jerry Gee But you also have to acknowledge when those stats translate into a victory. Just because you don't like a guy doesn't mean you can't give credit when it's due.

@firebaldy Yep, I surely know where to go for it.  Don't mind me following ya around!

@Jerry Gee I disagree, but whatever.  At the end of the day, it's a win.  That's all that matters.

@brookdon It's your legacy man! You have to keep it up!  It's not like we are used to wins this year so please do it.

@Jerry Gee @1harris1 Have to give Melo credit as well.  He was playing on a bum leg and still hit some big shots.

@tommy2b @Kiyan Carterlittle Kiyan became a Knicks fan 3 years ago.  His greatest Knick moment was win Melo scored 61 pts. Kiyan's next greatest moment was when Melo threw his jock strap at his Helmet!

Personally I enjoy doing them, I'm just trying to get the pulse of the fanbase.

@Jerry Gee Carl is doing his best to audition for the little short bus.  He surely has my vote!  I would put him int the 2nd row seats.

@Jerry Gee @1harris1 Again, I disagree.  Melo made a huge shot to put them up 7 with under two minutes to go; and then hit two big free throws to allow them to preserve the lead with under a minute to go.  If you're going to harp on the bad pass, then you have to acknowledge those plays.  JR didn't even score in the last two minutes of that game when it was hanging in the balance (I'm not criticizing him for that.  It's just fact.)  As terrific as JR played (best game of the season for him), I can't say this win is all on JR.  That's a stretch for me.

@Jerry Gee @1harris1 Nope, but it sure helped tonight.


I understand you don't like the guy.  That's fair.  You're not the only one on this site.  lol

@Jerry Gee You can kill the guy all you want.  Have at it.  I'll take 36 on 50% plus shooting any night from anybody.  They lose this game without him.


I agree with you that JR was tremendous.


I'm just happy with the win.  They looked absolutely pitiful last night.  I still don't think they'll be able to pull this off given their schedule, but for one night I'm happy.

@Jerry Gee @1harris1 I think you're being hard on the guy.  But whatever, at the end of the day it's a win.  That's all that matters.  Beggars can't be choosers.

@Kiyan Carter lol 2000? That would mean you were here at 5 years old.  So you became a Knick fan in Y2k? 

OLD Knick got paper plates older than you!

@Kiyan Carter Mad?  Why would I be mad when we won a game?  

The love jones is messing with your Helmet man! You and Melo need a trial separation!
