Not-So-Quick Recap: Knicks 84, Cavaliers 90

Sorry for the lack of a game thread tonight, folks. I had left my apartment around 5:00 PM, and I thought that was too early to presume no one else was handling the game thread. In the future, I’ll just schedule a game thread before I go to go up about a half hour before the game and if someone else wants to do a more in-depth one, they can just replace mine before it posts (and as I said in the comments, I checked on my phone during intermission at a musical and I saw the Knicks were up …continue reading

Roundtable: Gallo/Melo, Second Scorer, and Fisher

Who will have the higher TS% when the season is over: Carmelo Anthony or Langston Galloway? Kurylo: Carmelo. Right now Galloway leads 63.0% to 50.3%. I want to say Langston, given all the hard work he’s put in to become a better player. However his 3p% is at 60% and is propping up that ts%. If we knock his 3p% down to last year’s rate of 35.2%, Gallo’s ts% drops to 50%. Or in simpler terms, Galloway isn’t hitting enough of his other shots (1s & 2s) to give me hope. Domenic: Carmelo Anthony. Once Galloway’s 3P% normalizes (35 to …continue reading

Quick Recap: Knicks 96, Hornets 95

I don’t care what Mr. NBA-Man says, that shot was good enough for me. This was a solid victory, especially considering the team had to travel from Canada to Carolina overnight for this second game of a back-to-back. It was nice to see Afflalo back and contributing, as well as Amundson getting some productive minutes. Melo cooking in the third quarter and Calderon not looking like a corpse were added bonuses. But let’s give it up to Porzingis! 13 points, including the last fraction of a second, game winning basket, to go along with 15 rebounds and 2 blocks. We’re …continue reading
