What the hell are you talking about ? DEFENSE (it's better to say lack of) is the main reason we're losing games along with REBOUNDING.

Our offense is fine. Knicks are 2nd in offensive rating,therefore their offense is elite. They are on pace to set the record at taking the care of the ball and are 4th in 3-pt % despite shooting like 30 of them per game.
There are nights where it seems like no one besides Melo or J.R. can score but it doesn't stop them from scoring over 100 points regularly.

On the other hand Knicks are 20th in defensive rating,23rd in FG% allowed,23rd in 3-pt% allowed. Our rebounding is horrible too,25th in rebounding differential.

Numbers don't lie. Knicks are a GREAT OFFENSIVE TEAM but BELOW AVERAGE DEFENSIVE TEAM and a POOR REBOUNDING TEAM.

If our defense and rebounding was average (15th in the league) we would be somewhere around 25-6 right now and not 21-10.
We're winning games solely because of our offense because defense and rebounding is nowhere to be found expect for like 5-10 minutes per game.

You can't go down by 15-20 points every game and then expect to come back and win it. Our 1st half defense has been horrible all year long and that's what makes us fall behind early.
Just look at the 1st quarter scores in the last 6 games:
vs Chicago 23-30
vs Minnesota 22-29
@ LA Lakers 23-25
@ Phoenix 27-29
@ Sacramento 23-32
vs Portland 23-30

Our offense hasn't been great in 1st quarters but 23.5 points over the last 6 games is solid (on pace for 94 per game) but our defense has been horrible (29.2 points allowed,that's on pace for 117 points per game). We've been losing 1st quarters by an average of 5-6 points. That's terrible.
And our halftime scores aren't any better either.
Down by 15 against Chicago,down by 11 against Minny,down by 2 against the Lakers,up by 10 vs Suns,down by 21 vs Sacramento and down by 11 vs Portland.
So we've been down by 10+ at the half in 4 out of our 6 last games.

Clutch I addressed all of that before you made the post, take a look at the previous page.

Having two to three scoreless starters is the issue.

They aren't making the other team work.

Meanwhile Toronto just destroyed Portland tonight. They didn't allow 40+ rebounds to the Blazers.

Knicks better get their sh*t together or San Antonio will humiliate them too.

It's been Melo and J.R. vs whole other team for a while. Other players need to step up. Why is Brewer still starting ? He brings nothing to the table. At least not for the Knicks

Landry Fields had a good game. I'd rather have him back than Brewer.

At $7 million per year?




Toronto would trade him to us in a heartbeat if we would take him.


If we resigned him, we likely wouldn't have Kidd, Smith, and all the other pieces we got this offseason.

I'm not the one signing the checks, so

But I'm happy to see Dolan lose enough money to be forced into selling the team.

I look forward to the ghibberish after tonights game.

Its amazing how most people love to blame individuals... Its not an individual thing.

Coach plays too small and they cant shoot. That equals bad defense and out rebounded. Simple stuff. Not an individual blame game.

Knicks played great. Defense was there from start to the end. Knicks shut down the paint,they did allow some wide open threes though but IMO that's better than allowing easy layups. There's a much bigger chance NBA player will miss a n open three than an open layup.

I like when Camby and Chandler play together. It denies second chance opportunities which helps the team defense a lot.
Knicks outrebounded the Spurs by 13 !!!
When was the last time we outrebounded someone by 10+ ? I seriously can't remember.

I know this. My point was obvious. You play small and cant shoot you cant play good defense or rebound. Tonight they did the opposite.

It was never an individual thing it was a team thing that started from the coaching staff.
