It's hard to shake the old feelings of a let down is coming against lesser opponents. It's happening almost every game now for me.... like 'oh man this is that game'. Too many years of it happening has warped my psychology that no matter how much my rational mind fights it there's that emotional rut that my feelings fall into.

I truly get more nervous when we play 'bad' teams than when we play good teams

No Melo means Felton will jack up somewhere between 20-30 shots. Lets just hope they're going in.

Cleveland beat our ass under every damned circumstance last year and now they may luck out and play us without Melo/Amare...I REALLY want this win too bc one of my good friends is a die hard Cleveland fan (for every team, he's not just a Bron guy that stuck). He's been rubbing in our multiple losses to the Cavs for a long time.

If Chandler is ass again, Varejao will have a 20-20 game by halftime.

If Feltons hitting that midrange J we should be okay. If he isn't, then hopefully JR is. If JR isn't, this game could be close.

We split last year but even that was embarrassing.

Not just last year, the year before that we lost to them multiple times as well...No Kyrie Irving, Baren Davids lit us up.

At first I'm thinking we lose this without Melo, but then I remember that we have Jason Kidd.

Last night against the Lakers it's the loudest the Garden crowd has been all season. MSG was rocking,especially after Melo's third three in a row.

MSG was also pretty loud against the Nuggets too. Other than these 2 games and the opening night against the Heat the Garden crowd has been pretty quit,probably because blowing opponents out (especially if they are weaker teams) isn't as interesting as beating big names in close games.

I expect it to be rocking against the Nets soon,hopefully the Knicks will be able to provide them something to cheer about.

I think if we play well as a team then we will win. Thats usually the case. When this team is playing together they can beat anyone. I do, however, expect Kyrie to go off. He is SO good, but hopefully Raymond makes a statement and outplays him.

Even with Carmelo out, as long as the team doesn't come in playing down to the competition, we should win this game. Kyrie will have something to prove coming into NYC, fresh off a return from injury. I hope Carmelo plays, but if not, this is a game we really should win without him. Especially if we can beat Miami by 20!

Is there any report on Melo?! I think they are keeping things quiet...because its probably really bad news.

Not to be upset.
