Some Plays Count: December 12th, Part 4

I found four interesting plays from the December 12th game against Denver, and decided to break down film on them to gain a better understanding of the Knicks. Originally I had them as one big video, but it got a bit long, so I decided to give each play its own video. Here is part 4, where Walker and Amar’e combine for a Gallinari opening.

    Nice breakdown. Needless to say, it also shows the import of a developing Gallo and his “attacking” game. When he can drive as well as spot up for 3s, it creates such a fuller offense.

    I really hope we can develop a stronger bench so all these guys don’t feel as tired and creaky as does New York in January and February.

  2. Nick C.

    Nice vignette. As for the link Mike, nice story probably nothing new to anyone here but good to see. I also don’t think it will change anyone’s mind re: get Melo or f’ Melo.

  3. Count Zero

    I love these video breakdowns — excellent series from that Denver game. And as TheRant points out, this one shows just how important it is for Gallo to attack the rim as well as spot up.

    Same as Nick on the link — we already knew all this, but I did like the graphical representation of the league’s top scorers. Plus it gives me a link to send the we-must-get-‘Melo crowd to in the future.

    I just wish ‘Melo would land somewhere else already so I could stop worrying…
