Thank you, Trent Tucker

As it turned out, the only way to keep Jamal Crawford from hoisting up a long distance, period-ending jumper was to have a rule that specifically says you canNOT shoot the ball.

And thankfully for the Knicks, that’s just what happened.

It’s still only the Bobcats, but two wins in a row are two wins in a row.

I’ll take what I can get.

    I can’t stand this idiocy of the last shot. Crawford waits too long to initiate and usually ends up with a contested 3-pointer. It’s a dumb idea anyway–if an isolation gives the best probability of a score then why not run it every play? Why is team basketball (supposedly) emphasized throughout the game then abandoned at its most crucial moment? I suppose it minimizes the chance of a turnover, but it also reduces the chance for a good shot and a foul.

    I agree – i can’t stand to watch Jamal pull up from 25 feet for a last second shot. Is it bad execution that he doesn’t drive or does Isiah draw it up like that?

    One of Crawford’s the buzzer beating misses was not his fault – Steph dribbled out the clock leaving Crawford stuck.

    What’s up with Morrison. The story on him was he could score – so he gets guarded by Marbury and he disappears.
