This is a big game. Chandler will decide to turn it on this game. Blowout win!

Yeah, I said it.

I'd start Amare already. Nuff with the temporary rotations.

I would too, but the only problem is we dont have a backup bigman. Kurt Thomas is all we got

I havent noticed until rewatching the game. We only have two capable big men right now. Tyson and STAT. We gotta get healthy fast or sign someone.

It wouldn't be that difficult. KT as backup center, Melo as backup PF. Stat as 3 center.

This game is an absolute must win, mainly because of what happened in the last game.

Secondly, they cannot continue to lose games in their division, then claim the goal is to win it.

They cannot go in Boston and walk away and say "they fought hard" and leave with an "L".

That would mean that either Melo plays all 48 minutes or at some point in the game we would have to rely on a Kurt Thomas and Steve Novak frontcourt. Yikes! It's not that easy of a decision to make. Especially since STAT is limited to 30 minutes and we have to be careful with his playing time.

A lot of effort was left to be desired against the Nets. Hopefully that effort was saved for Thursday.

Not at all. There are a few options at SF, and Woody would just have to manage the bench. All of the starters aren't subbed in for the entire bench.

Is Wallace really out for the season? The guy fits everything we need as a backup C

Fun fact: Pierce has been playing like moldy dog shyt since they won in MSG. Literally been terrible.

Another fun fact: He will magically find a way to play with intensity like its Game 7 of the ECF on Thursday and drop 35 on us, then happily continue to play like a washed up 36 year old bum until the next game against the Knicks.

Rat face lookin muthafka.

I dont know. But they are very secretive with Camby and Wallace.

Last game the Knicks won at Boston. November 24, 2006. Since then the Knicks have lost 13 in a row including the playoffs.

Pablo Prigioni did not practice on Tuesday due to a sore toe but he is expected to practice on Wednesday.


Looks like Pablo is a go for the game. Let's see if he can handle the ball pressure.

I will be watching Boston tonite to see how they respond after Doc River basically called his whole team a pussy for ultimately losing to Detroit in a blowout.

I'm glad we aren't their next opponent tonite, but i do think that game on Thursday is gonna be all over the news media because of what happens during it.

A blowout for someone and a brawl, probably both....I certainly hope the Knicks are up to the challenge.

Felton on the chance he plays against 76ers: “A big chance, but that’s not my decision to make. If it was up to me I’d play Boston."
