We built a big lead while Sessions was playing in the first quarter. We lost it after he left the game.

True. I only saw bits and pieces of the game - because I was watching the Yankees game!!!!! But didn't Jack look better than Sessions?

I thought that Jack looked washed up but I hope that I'm wrong. Sessions was much quicker but I'd still rather start young Frank and let him get his trial by fire.

Hahn was also praising Sessions and thinks he'll be the starting PG. Wally didn't commit one way or the other but did agree with Hahn that the Knicks would bring Frank off the bench in the beginning.

Wait a darn tooting second. This game was originally advertised for the 17th. I didn't pick this out of thin air, even if I was smoking some weed that evening. Oh no. This I am positive about.

Knicks actually have a decent shot at winning this game because you know Melo is going to put up 30 shots to try to show his old team up and good chance he shoots at a low percentage. Knicks can and should exploit that. They should leave Melo open and goad the thunder into using George and Westbrook less.

A LOT of people will be rooting for OKC, but for VERY different reasons.

JACK managed to get to the line and did attack the rim some but, he was looking like Rose out there (court vision wise). Dude was the definition of black hole and even though he scored, he did look pretty bad out there. Sessions looked better and like an actual point guard out there. He went for his too but, he didn't ignore the entire team while he was out there.

I totally disagree. He held the ball and went for his own shot too much. His defense is terrible. Slow!

The Knicks have a good shot...at losing by 30 pts. Melo is going to deliver a statement game. You watch.

Melo will destroy KP, at least Sessions should contain Westbrook. If not Jacks strength should give Westbrook fits. Hardaway > George
