There was one play last night that symbolizes the Knicks defense up to this point. Beno Udrih, lost Marbury on an easy cut to the hoop and had a wide open layup. What does it say about the Knicks’ effort and ability on the defensive end when their best player gets embarrassed by the 28th overall pick from Slovenia in his 6th career game?
