Happy MLK day! [This MLK day think about sharing your time and/or resources with those in need.] New York (15-24) hosts Chicago (18-23) in the traditional MLK matinee today. Chicago won the last meeting at home 105-100 in a game that featured some very poor shooting from New York. New York’s 45.2 eFG% was well below their current season average of 49.4%. New york also struggled from deep hitting only 6 of 28 three point attempts (21%). The three point shot is on of New York’s best offensive weapons so New York needs to get good looks from deep.

Looks like the Knicks are going to have an uphill battle scoring tonight. The Sixers rank 6th on defense. Watch for turnovers (Philly 6th overall, Knicks 16th) and getting to the line (Philly 8th, Knicks 27th) as keys when the Knicks have the ball. When the Sixers are on offense, New York needs to protect the glass (Philly 2nd, Knicks 17th).
Kelly Dwyer writes: How people can keep underestimating David Lee, thinking that he’s a product of a lousy team, easy shots, porous defense, uninspired opponents, lefty fetishism, Chris Duhon, the Washington Wizards … it boggles the mind. 30 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals, zero turnovers in 41:28; that’s a player. That’s someone that’s worth your time. It was true in 2005, it’s true today. The Wizards get really caught up here and leave the most important man unguarded.

I napped through most of last night’s game against the Hornets and woke up some time late third quarter and had this message from Mike in my inbox: Are you watching this. Are the Knicks just switching on every pick (esp. with Jeffries)? I’ve seen the Knicks do this when the opposition tries to establish the post but last night was different. There was a switch on practically every screen. In the video I said it’s possibly because the Knicks are terrible at getting over picks and it burns them often (Jarrett Jack’s layup around Lee to go up by …continue reading
