Rasheed Wallace's formula for the Knicks' second-teamers is pretty straightforward.
"We just try to outshine the first unit," Wallace said with a grin Sunday after the Knicks' bench contributed 33 points in an 88-76 win over the Pacers at Madison Square Garden.
"No, really, we're just trying to pick up where they left off," said Wallace, who had nine points, seven rebounds and a blocked shot in 16:35. "That was an intense game, coming off this hard road trip. They got us off to a good start, and it's up to us to add on to that. If we go out there and the lead gets chopped in half, or we're out there turning the ball over, we just know it's going to be more minutes for them, and that's something we definitely try to prevent."
Lol..at trying to prevent the starters from getting more minutes
"It was that tenacity. They were hard-nosed," Wallace said. "I was a huge Patrick Ewing fan; that's what made me sway this way. You had Oak, you had J-Starks . . . It was an all-around good team and they played hellified defense. That's what I liked about them
Giving Props to the Old School.....well the older school
so it's just a matter of time before everyone buys into it, and once we all do, it's going to be hellacious."
I'm ready for it to get hellacious because I already thought we had reached hellacious mode. It's a scary thought for the rest of the league if we can get even more hellacious.
