NFT: Knicks Chat: Sixers tonight

DanMetroMan : 1/11/2017 9:52 am
-I expect a win tonight (for once)

-Cousins expected to sign an extension worth 207 million with the Kings per multiple reports

-My "2nd team" for this season the Jazz knocked off the Cavs and LBJ complained about not getting calls lolz

-Isaiah Thomas is averaging 34, 5 and 3 over his last 5 games on 52% from the field, 57% from 3, wow

-Harden 40, 15 and 10, ho hum

-Whiteside 28 and 20 on 13-17 from the field

- Under the radar but Caldwell-Pope is becoming a very nice player. Surprising 40% from 3

-Is there any way we could pry McLemore on a buy low?

With the exception of being a Browns fan, is there anything worse

than being a Knicks fan? I mean this team is year in and year out a bunch of losers and even when they give you a glimmer of hope, they always let you down in the end.

The man picked to go with Lance Thomas over his 2nd leading scorer in the 4th quarter of a close game and you state 'you can't blame the coach'? Interesting.
Melo sucked tnt aside from a hot stretch  
Keith : 1/11/2017 9:28 pm : link
but that last shot wasn't on him. He's not quick enough to stick w mcconnell
Rose

Played well. I never felt we would lose. I'm stunned
This is so much better than competitive basketball...YEAH!!!

Can't wait to get that #13 draft pick fringe bench player to build around KP in about 4 years.

Criticizing melo for the sake of criticizing Melo. He was denying the baseline, well. It was a turnaround step back jumper with a bit of a push off to boot.


Melo played as much defense on that possession as the last guy on the bencj. Jennings picked up Henderson and Melo picked up Mcconnell. McConnell dribbled out and took a turn around jumper and Melo stood and watched. Defend him all you want, but thats melo's defense in a nutshell. That was his guy and no one elses.

Kuz
Didn't rose hit a buzzer beater  
Keith : 1/11/2017 9:33 pm : link
early on?
up 10 with 2 and half minutes left  
nygiants16 : 1/11/2017 9:33 pm : link
and lose is an absolute joke..

and this is the same team that talked about bringing the 90s knicks back, these players dont deserve to hold ewing and the rest of those knicks jocks..

this team just needs to stop talking because thats all they do is talk
And this is just unfair:

If season ended today, Knicks would pick 12th in the draft



I mean that's just cruel. Totally cruel. Obviously we have a lot more losing to do but 12th? After this debacle of a season? And this debacle of a history?

knicks will en with the 8th seed and get swept by cleveland
Knicks had a 10-point lead with 2:29 left  
Anakim : 1/11/2017 9:35 pm : link
I mean that's like a Giants-esque blown lead
Melo killed us in the 4th  
Keith : 1/11/2017 9:36 pm : link
Took terrible shots and missed a few down the stretch when he could have put it away. Hornacek was visibly upset with Melos selection
Coaching  
PhiPsi125 : 1/11/2017 9:36 pm : link
It seemed like a good play and got KP a wide open shot...but why do we need to take such a low percentage shot there? I'll never understand. Just get the two points and D the fuck up.

At least I had the Ewing years when I was in high school. Didn't win shit because of MJ but at least it was fun to watch.
Is KP serving Rose's punishment for missing the last game  
Mason : 1/11/2017 9:36 pm : link
?
Lance Thomas  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 1/11/2017 9:36 pm : link
didn't take 3 bad shots in a row in the 4th quarter, nor did he airball a completely wide-open three at the end of the game.

Lance Thomas plays because he tries to defend, nothing more, nothing less.

or gets another shot the next game. Kuz has a bad stretch and you don't see him for a week. One guy has a long leash the other has none
I would give so much for Melo, Lance Thomas and Jo Noah to be off this  
Anakim : 1/11/2017 9:38 pm : link
team. Get rid of all that salary and all that shitty play.




Of course knowing the Knicks, they'd probably use that money to give Rose the max...
and on that last play  
nygiants16 : 1/11/2017 9:38 pm : link
kp needs to have better defensive awareness, embiid turned his back to the basket, as soon as he did that he needs to go to mcconel and double...there would of been no shot..

instead he just stands there

Agreed. Players had a few chances to finish and they blew it. Melo and KP blew it
Thomas  
Deej : 1/11/2017 9:39 pm : link
I have to assume coaches are happy with his D and effect on team D. Knicks D is like a glove with five thumbs. Lots of guys doing something (some doing nothing) but nothing cohesive. My theory is that Noah-KP-Thomas is the makings of a team defense.
If KP can't even draw iron with a wide open shot at the end  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 1/11/2017 9:40 pm : link
of the game, I can't go crazy about anything else I saw.

(Although, it's a sad day in Knick Land when Melo is getting taken off the dribble by Ilyasova.)
KP is spent or hurt or sick

Watch carefully, I thought Noah got away with a lot of hacks on Embiid. The officials were kind to him in this game. Fast athletic big man get to the basket so easy on him now.

MookGiants : 1/11/2017 11:12 pm : link
is just rotten. They couldn't put together a more unlikable group of players outside of Porzingis if they tried. Just awful to watch.

MookGiants : 1/11/2017 11:49 pm : link
nice defense by Carmelo on the final shot. Didn't even make a fucking attempt to contest the shot when TJ did a spin move.

I have zero interest in watching him play on the Knicks. I hope Phil continues to rip him in the media so he then decides he'll waive his no trade to get out.

I would trade him for anything at this point, best offer regardless of what it is. He's a loser

From the time Hornacek drew up the final play in the timeout to after the final shot, Melo's body language and antics were just awful.

Yet there were people defending his defense on this thread alone. Talking about how he stopped a shitty PG from going baseline. He made no effort to get physical. He made no effort contesting. He just stood and watched the spin move for a turnaround shot.

Again, Melo doesnt even try on defense. Then of course he didnt get the last shot either so I am sure he was pissed about that too.

Great game from Rose though. Really carried them in the 4th. Until Melo got involved.

This IS the competitive team with all of the "upside" you saw eye to eye with Phil in the offseason.

Sorry?
