Guys, the break is over.

Dag, they are getting smoked.

3 RIYank   ~  Feb 29, 2012 8:47 pm

Defensive lethargy, is my diagnosis. Maybe they'll pick it up in the second half.

4 Alex Belth   ~  Feb 29, 2012 9:23 pm

Wait, they am back in it!

Yep, they did wake up. See, that's an impressive team. Balanced, clicking, like a smooth engine.

[5] Against less-than elite teams at least. Still a little uneven after their losses to both Miami and New Jersey for me to say they are great, but the potential is certainly there as long as they don't tinker. Somebody compared them to Miami when they first started their Big 3 together and how they were mediocre for the first twenty games before clicking and beating the bejeezus out of everyone (except the Mavs, obviously); I think the Knicks have a similar amount of games to play with all their pieces at once before they can make a serious run to and in the playoffs. All those people whining about Melo not fitting in or Amar'e being the forgotten man are just that, whiners.

I think the Carmelo issue is tricky because the ball does tend to stop with him. At the same time, he's a great scorer so you want him to shoot the ball. It's really a question of balance.

7) And he's looking to pass when he can.

They've developed a nice bench.

[8] I guess that depends on your definition of "can".
