NFT: Knicks vs Pistons

larryflower37 : 10/13/2021 5:31 pm
Cade Cunningham, Killian Hayes, Saddiq Bey look to be out.

Hopefully we get to see a lot of the end of the bench for the Knicks.
I love to see McBride, Grimes, Simms, and Sims get extended minutes.

Don't hold your breath waiting for them

Tom Thibodeau says Kemba Walker is out due to rest and Nerlens Noel is getting closer to returning to the court. Noel won’t play vs. DET tonight.

Tom Thibodeau said “ideally, yes” when asked if Mitchell Robinson could play in the Knicks’ next preseason game. Robinson (foot) is close to being cleared for full contact.

So was I, Cade Cunningham hasn't played since summer league.

Thibs should rest Rose and Kamba tonight. They don't need the game experience to get ready
From all I have read and heard...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 10/13/2021 5:58 pm : link
Cade appears to be the real deal.
I think Rose should play.  
robbieballs2003 : 10/13/2021 6:00 pm : link
He doesn't need to play a lot but chemistry is important. I like reading how Rose is taking Sims under his wing. Plus, having a legit PG on the floor helps everyone else get ready for the season. I do hope we see a lot of McBride tonight.
Kemba out tonight  
nygiants16 : 10/13/2021 6:01 pm : link
probably means some run for Grimes and Quick point off the bench

Taken literally, Kemba can’t play….because he rested.

Sounds like Kyrie-itis.

Taken literally...  
manh george : 10/13/2021 6:50 pm : link
Thibs said that each starter would be kept out of one exhibition, up to 4. So, this is Walker's turn. It's a great idea, because it leaves room for Quickly and McBride to get time at point.
Can the Knicks bring back Pinson  
nygiants16 : 10/13/2021 7:05 pm : link
in that 15th man role, screw anyone else let him have it, he earned it last year and now with a crowd rocking every night, bring him back..

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 10/13/2021 7:06 pm : link
I like the addition of Kemba because when he's on, he's a real asset. I just am concerned about how much is left in the tank. The good thing is that we're not counting him to be the alpha dog.
If we can get  
TommyWiseau : 10/13/2021 7:53 pm : link
one or two good years out of Kemba/Rose duo I will be happy. Buy's us time to find a PG of the future.
Sloppy start with terrible shooting.  
bceagle05 : 10/13/2021 8:08 pm : link
I’d love to see McBride get out there and change the energy.
Apparently the Pistons dont foul

Don't understand how Thibs hasn't lost it yet.
This has been a horrible game.
Mavs 127 - hornets 59  
larryflower37 : 10/13/2021 9:02 pm : link
I get it's pre-season but only score 59 points
Simms came in and played really good defense  
nygiants16 : 10/13/2021 9:19 pm : link
Knicks went small and were quicker on their rotations
They miss Robinson and Noel  
larryflower37 : 10/13/2021 9:21 pm : link
This defense is built around a rim protector.
Olynyk is such a dirtbag player  
nygiants16 : 10/13/2021 9:24 pm : link
just runs into people and then flops when someone comes near him

Thibs teaching any lose is unacceptable.
Starters played until the game was locked up.
Can he coach football?
Strong D when needed and pullaway offense at the end

Usually the hallmarks of a good team.

Safe to say its not just "light at the end of the tunnel" stuff anymore. They're out of the tunnel.
Expecting Alot More From Toppin and Barrett This Year

Robinson played 66 games as a 2nd round pick rookie (after sitting out a year), 61/66 games his second year and had 2 fluky injuries last year. This narrative he's always hurt simply isn't accurate.
Thibs

looks great for 64 and seems really energized by this team. Good to see the Knicks make 2 analytics hires.

DanMetroMan : 10/14/2021 11:15 am : link
was kinda confused with Hall/Powell move but I guess this allows them to give Hall a bonus up to 50K if he stays with Westchester for 60 days (despite being waived).
And  
DanMetroMan : 10/14/2021 11:18 am : link
now they waive Powell, so the same move on both.

definitely were not firing on all cylinders, but man is this team deep.

I think a lot of our success in the regular season may come from the utilization of the subs and being able to just outscore the other teams second unit. Hopefully Thibs is liberal with his substitutions this year.

I do worry that in all three preseason games so far, we've either been losing or tied in the 3rd quarter, when the starters from the other team are typically pulled. Not having Noel or Mitch back there hurts. Hopefully they can get some run before the season starts for real.

they were up 13 at half against the Pacers and they pulled their starters to start the 3rd, kbicks went on a 15-0 run..

Knicks went up 10-15 points against the wizards in the 3rd with Beal and dinwiddie still playing..

Right and Julius Randle was playing with 5 minutes left against the Pistons.

I'm just saying that it's something to look out for.

Wayne Selden's last stop was in Israel, although apparently he did very well over there. 6'5" combo guard from U Kansas, probably plays D well if This wants him to stick around.
