    Positives to take from last night:

    KP had a decent game against a top-flight defense that made stopping him a priority.

    Melo made a few nice passes.

    RoLo is a competent center.

    That’s about it. The second unit was obviously a disaster, but Gallo in particular was off. And with no surprise contribution from a Lance Thomas or Kevin Seraphin, that’s all it took for us to lose…and lose badly. We need Gallo to be good.

    Let’s see what the Knicks do on Friday. I don’t care if they lose in Orlando – it’d still be a 2-2 roadtrip, which is great for this up-and-coming team. But do they have the fortitude to push back against one of the best teams in the east on Friday?

    In other words, I’m fine if they are the 34-win team I thought they were; I just want to know if the flashes of something more they’ve shown are for real or just them taking advantage of everyone’s failure to take them seriously.

    The Knicks were just off last night, shots weren’t falling, they were out of sync. This stuff happens on road trips. If we beat Miami on Friday night, then it’s really no big deal. And let’s not get too crazy about the Heat, they’ve played 10 home games already and only 3 on the road and of their 9 wins, 3 were against teams with over .500 records.

    More importantly, if we beat Orlando tomorrow, a 3-1 road trip would be something to celebrate.

    I also think that the heat are a bad playoff matchup if the Knicks get that far.
    They have length for Porzingis and two good wing defenders for Melo.

    Also their bench can be potent

    [off topic]:
    i’m visiting the US next spring and i definitely wanna go to a couple of games. any advice on where to buy the tickets (stubhub, on site, etc)? also is it better to buy them now or rather shortly before?
    thx in advance!

    I had a good experience buying tickets on SeatGeek. It searches tickets from many vendors like Stubhub and others, and it found me a very good price for the upcoming Knicks game in Philadelphia. (it’s December 18th, so I haven’t used the tickets yet). I live in NJ almost as close to Philadelphia as NYC, and the tickets there are much cheaper. I think most NBA cities have much cheaper tickets than NYC, so if you’re lucky enough to find a Knicks away game that works with your schedule, then you might get a very good deal.
