NFT: Knicks vs. Raptors

robbieballs2003 : 2/9/2019 7:19 pm
This could get real ugly tonight.
Difficult to imagine the Knicks getting any uglier  
GeofromNJ : 2/9/2019 7:39 pm : link
Now that we know that KP is not coming back and Kanter is gone, it continues to be possible that the Knicks will not win another game this year.
Starting

Jordan
Hezonja
Knox
Dotson
DSJ

Knicks unstoppable so far haha. 19-10 so far. Raps starting to hit tho  
ChaChing : 2/9/2019 7:58 pm : link
It's was obvious coming in but still easy to see how DJ can help Mitchell

The backboard pass from DSJ to DJ was sweet. We can see the Trier to Mitch and DSJ to DJ connections, but everyone should be looking for these more often. Hell we should be running them to Knox and maybe Mario. Used to drive me nuts we didn't use KP this way more too

But holy shit does he need to work on his conditioning.
Sorry guys...

Tonight, scary.

Team sucks, but it's nice to see some ball movement lead to rhythm shots.

tonight.
Nice game for the tank

Knox and Robinson both looking pretty good.
If the Knicks had made their foul shots, they would have won  
GeofromNJ : 2/9/2019 10:03 pm : link
They out rebounded the Raptors 57-47, shot 41.5% to 38.4% from the field, and both teams shot 40% from the 3 point line. Would have been a great win against the 40-16 Raptors.
I don't agree  
RAIN : 2/9/2019 10:04 pm : link
DSJ looked like CTO, chief tanking officer.

Mario took the difficult shots that needed to be taken, for clock reasons. DSJ was out of sorts tonight. Still like the player, but he needs to learn how to get over a screen and he needs a plan at the FT line.
The tank is strong

Someone just asked Fiz  
bceagle05 : 2/9/2019 10:19 pm : link
if he's dreaming of Zion Williamson. Gave a predictable non-answer.
Absolute speculation  
ChaChing : 2/9/2019 10:26 pm : link
but they said DSJ was real down about the missed FTs yesterday. It might have effected his game tonight and if so would be a good teaching moment

Fizdale said he thinks he was a littler tired, played him a lot of minutes last couple of games...

also said he told him if you are going to lead and be a ppint guard do not show bad body language, doesnt matter if you are having a bad individual game...

also said in the huddle he was leading and talking to the team

really like Kadeem Allen.

- I've been kind of disappointed overall in the "Fizdale will develop the young guys" overall (maybe they just aren't talented) but thumbs up his work with Mitchell. Kid clearly needs to be coached up and confidence.

-DSJ has been what I expected. Ridiculous athlete, mediocre basketball player. If he can improve his shot he has a chance.

Paul George is a monster. One of the most underrated players in pro-sports, not just the NBA. Boring name? Markets played? Not really sure why.
Smith needs a mid range game  
nygiants16 : 2/9/2019 11:16 pm : link
and if he is going to attack as much as he does he needs to hit his free throws, he can get to the rim at will but has to convert

After all the deadline maneuvering, I now project 12 teams to have cap space this summer (9 with room for at least one max deal):

1. NYK - $71.3M
2. LAC - $54.9M
3. ATL - $41.9M
4. IND - $44.7M
5. LAL - $36.8M
6. UTA - $33.4M
7. BKN - $30.3M
8. DAL - $29.3M
9. MIL - $27.7M

Kenny Albert said Fiz said that Allen lost 25 pounds since training camp. WTF? How overweight was he then because it doesn't look like he is in tremendous shape now. Haha. That is crazy. He looked solid tonight. I hope he keeps up with the dedication.

DanMetroMan : 2/10/2019 12:33 am : link
At the start of his second pro season — and first with the Knicks — the 26-year-old arrived to training camp woefully out of shape and failed the team’s conditioning test, earning Allen a trip back to the G-League.

“I knew I wasn’t at an ideal weight,” Allen said last week. “I went home after last season, and I was eating a lot. I felt it in the summer time playing pickup. I felt myself being heavy, and the conditioning test came and showed it. I’m not afraid to admit my failure, what I did with that one.”

As the Celtics’ second-round pick in 2017, Allen spent more time with the Maine Red Claws (34 games) as a rookie than in Boston (18 games). When he landed in Westchester, Allen wondered when he’d get another NBA opportunity again.

“It’s tough in the G-League. It’s very mental,” Allen said. “It’s just like, ‘Am I ever gonna get there?’ Sometimes it seems far away. You don’t know if it’s ever gonna happen.”

Totally agree- truly a great player. What he did on both ends was incredible last night.

There’s a lot of teams- especially the Lakers, that must regret not trading for him. I remember I use to argue with someone on here who didn’t view him as a great player. I think he’s number 2 in the MVP race.

he has taken his game to another level...

i used to think he was a good number 2 but never an alpha, this year he is carrying that team

Yikes. Where did you see this? If that’s true they are playing with fire. Is it showing Durant in a Knicks uniform? If he’s in a GS uni then it may be a bit more “explainable” but I’m not sure that it’s all that common to show opponents in this scenario, but maybe it is.

it is in the membership portal when you log in, he is in warriors uniform but the picture is clearly cropted so he is in it
Zion  
TyreeHelmet : 2/10/2019 9:53 am : link
I know a lot of this hinges on the situation the Knicks are in, but would you be in favor of trading Zion for Anthony Davis?

- I’m also loving the Celtics struggle. Very telling comments from Morris. That team is a mess. Where’s the criticism of Brad Stephens?

It may have been conpletely coincidental but they can not be that naive

No big deal. It's not like they're the Lakers who have made tampering a habit.
Oh stop they wouldn’t get a small fine or anything

It’s not tampering. The guy is in a golden state jersey. Relax.
Before long, they will have one with Kyrie, KD, and Zion, all in  
Jim in Hoboken : 2/10/2019 9:45 pm : link
different uniforms.

Until then, I still think that they will end up with Hachimura, Kemba Walker and Tobias Harris.
