    Classic Clyde with “look at Mozgov at 7’1″ with the agility, the mobility, and previously the hostility on the dunk!”

  2. Frank O.

    Great play by Amare taking the charge.
    Smart defensive play.

    Remember it, Ted, because these teams are running their asses of tonight.
    Defense is going to be situational…:)

  3. Ted Nelson

    Frank O.: I’ll get this out of the way quick: like Blatche a lot  

    He’s got skill, but he’s also got a gut… A big risk on a long-term deal…

  4. Frank O.

    Ted Nelson:

    I didn’t notice the weight.
    He’s been pretty productive so far this year.

  5. Ted Nelson

    I like how when a confident player takes a bad shot and misses Clyde doesn’t say “that’s what happens when you’re confident…” Only when they make one.

  6. Frank O.

    I have to listen to Washington announcers tonight. MSG blacked out in DC.
    Their quite pleased with Blatche.

    There have been I think 9 lead changes so far.

  7. Frank O.

    Okay, they need to pull AR after that sequence.
    He needs to pass out and let O reset. He was 1 on 5

  8. jaylamerique

    AR needs to stop shooting. this is exactly the reason why i did not think he deserved minutes on this team.. the guy is horrible on offense.

  9. Frank O.

    If he focused on boards and defense he could be useful, but it almost looks as if the Knicks were trying to get the ball to him. He hit one shot, and then he started trying to force four more.
    Pretty juvenile.
    Make me appreciate Fields that much more.

  10. nicos

    AR 1-5 with 2 turnovers in 5 minutes Wow. Does have 4 rebounds and took a charge but he can’t be out there playing like this.

  11. cgreene

    Whoaaaaa! So what you’re saying, Ted, is that Wilson should drive to the hole. Now I get it. Whatta dunk.

  12. Nick C.

    Nice start. Everyone contributing, even Mozgov, tho AR looks raw to put it nicely. Is Turiaf becoming anyone elses favorite?

  13. Robert Silverman

    Frank O.: Who thought of Charles Oakley when Turiaf nailed that shot?  

    very nice play by Turiaf, but if y’all recall, Oakley couldn’t jump over a phone book. No way he even attempts that block

  14. Frank O.

    Robert Silverman:

    more than likely he would have “innocently” undercut him.

  15. Robert Silverman

    Clyde’s special like that. A “vacillating” pace is also a misnomer. “Vacillate” means to rise and fall or swing between poles. Clyde means to say, “fast”, but ya know, that’s not nearly as fun

    HAHAHAHAhaha!

  17. Frank O.

    What ever happened to that dude a few years ago on the blog that used to blame the Knicks poor play on Clyde”s negativity about their play? Kept on calling for Clyde’s firing. Clyde’s like that eccentric uncle…or Yogi.
    Boy, that was a while ago.

    By the way, the Knicks have forced three shot clock violations and this last turnover should have been one but the Wiz traveled in the last second.
    The D at times has been outstanding.

  18. Frank O.

    Knicks are sucking from the line tonight. Hope that doesn’t come back to haunt them. Wiz have hit 94 percent of theirs.

    But Wiz is horrible from three.

  19. Frank O.

    AR is simply stupid. I’m convinced he doesn’t know how to play basketball.
    I mean horrible shot. Then stupid soft foul. A 7 footer allows a 6 footer to actually get off a shot there. Pathetic

  20. DRed

    The guy who kept calling Clyde the ‘boo generator’ and blamed him for all the Knicks woes? I think that was Isiah.

  21. rohank

    Is it just me or have the knicks had 40+ from their bench in every game? Also – randolph showing his defensive presence now.

  22. Frank O.

    Nick C.: Clyde says Blatche is overweight. hahaha  

    Ted said the same earlier.

    Blatche has went 8-9 in first half, then 1-9 or something like that.

  23. rohank

    Also i think i’ve seen more dunks in this game than all of the last 2 years combined.

    They mentioned football players on teh sideline? Who is that?

  24. Robert Silverman

    rohank: Also i think i’ve seen more dunks in this game than all of the last 2 years combined.They mentioned football players on teh sideline? Who is that?  

    Mark Sanchez, for one

  25. Frank O.

    So are we the folks who aren’t at the game tonight?

    BTW scoring is spread out nicely. So balanced.
    Felton 13 pts
    Stat 14
    Gallo 16
    Douglas 15
    WC 14

  26. latke

    wall showing lots of bad judgment, driving into traffic and throwing up prayers. He’s fast, but he lacks the muscle and finishing skill of derrick rose (and apparently an even worse perimeter shooter).

    It seems like Wall is getting frustrated.
    he needs to use his big men better.

  28. rohank

    The crowd is already cheering their heroes with 2 mins remaining. That makes me smile =)

    Oh and btw there’s the pnr! with turiaf tho

  29. Robert Silverman

    Not to nitpick, but does it seem to anyone else that Felton runs the pick and roll better with Turiaf than with Stoudemire?

  30. Frank O.

    No let down after a big win.
    No let down in second of a back to back.
    Knicks have controlled this game.

    Great bench.

    This is a good team. There was a reason why they gave portand and the celts all they could handle.

  31. Frank O.

    Robert Silverman: Not to nitpick, but does it seem to anyone else that Felton runs the pick and roll better with Turiaf than with Stoudemire?  

    Way better.

    Seriously, I think Amare turns the wrong way.

  32. BigBlueAL

    Knicks now 3-1 vs the East, their conference record is going to be real important come end of the season so these games against the weaker East teams, including obviously Sunday vs Philly, are the real key games to make the playoffs.

  33. eric8476

    i thought yesterday’s game was a mirage with all of those 3’s going down. this win is the way we need to play for the season

  34. DRed

    Toney Douglas had as many boards as Turiaf, Mozgov and Stoudemire combined. Obviously, TDDWTDD, but I’d like to see the big guys doing a little better on the glass. Otherwise I’ve got no complaints about tonight. Double digit blocks! Again!

  35. jaylamerique

    i dont think ive ever been this excited for a knick team. we have a lot of unselfish players that like to pass the ball

  36. jaylamerique

    yah i am to young to remember the 90s. i was only 3 when they made the finals in 94. so for most of my life the knicks have been bad

  37. Frank O.

    11 blocks
    11 steals
    17 points of TOs.

    Sure you win when you score more than the other guy, but defense wins games.

  38. rama

    Great win. 11 steals, 11 blocks – wow!! Everyone sharing the ball. A decent game from Amare – 18 points on 11 shots, a bunch of blocks, a couple taken charges. Another amazing +/- ratio for Turiaf, who’s quickly becoming one of my favorite players. Gallo continuing his strong multifaceted play. TDDWTDD, which seems to be stealing the ball a lot. Best of all, a winning record!

    Only negative: I don’t think a lot of teams are going to sleep on the Knicks anymore. Won’t be too many games we can steal this year; the word will be out that we’re for real.

    At last…!!

  39. d-mar

    Anyone who criticizes STAT that actually watched this game is crazy, I don’t care what his final stat line says. He was a PRESENCE on D.

    Every time the Wiz sniffed getting into the game, Toney D had a big bucket. I am really loving this kid.

    Stat plays D

  41. rama

    d-mar – I don’t think anyone is criticizing STAT after tonight. When he had 14 points on 21 shots, with 8 turnovers, he was hearing it. Tonight, he had a good game on both ends of the floor.

  42. BigBlueAL

    I only saw the 4th quarter which AR played a little and after looking at the box score saw an ugly 1 for 7 FG including 0 for 1 from 3pt and 0 for 2 from the FT line plus 3 TO’s. BUT in just 10 minutes he did have 7 boards, 2 blocks and a steal (plus 3 fouls).

    If he ever gets a clue on offense you can definitely see the value he can bring to the team.

  43. SeeWhyDee77

    I um..expected the defense to be better this season…but wow. I don’t even think the Riley/JVG teams were this active defensively. More physical..yea. But man, what a difference having better athletes make. Douglas is looking like an All Defense 1st teamer in the early going and even Stat looks more than competent defensively. Maybe our defense is not quite at Boston or Miami’s level..but boy do we have a chance to be VERY dangerous on defense becuz we have the athletes to turn a steal, block or rebound into a bucket quick. Maybe I should be more patient and less critical..if the team is able to play like they did tonite more often, then we should expect big things. We may still need another scorer though, just so teams won’t key on Stat

  44. Spree8nyk8

    Miami is down for with 3 left in New Orleans btw.

    I think a team like Miami is going to have tough times with us because of our deep bench. We should be able to run their starters to death and make their bench show something. But that might just me dreaming.

  45. Kikuchiyo

    For those who prefer Bosh to Amar’e, tonight Bosh played 34 minutes and had one board and zero FT attempts.

    Yeah, yeah, it’s a long season. Just sayin’…
