2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Suns

Sorry for the delayed thread! The Knicks need this game and they SHOULD win and they’ve gotten off to a great start.

Let’s go, Knicks!

Ugly first few minutes, but I am enjoying the Galloway starting at the 1. Pace is up and some good transition hoops. AA looks to be locked in early.

I wonder how long it’s going to take Porzingis to hit a shot. This is a pathetic performance for a team up 14 points halfway through the first. How does Fisher look at himself in the mirror?

Galloway hopefully keeps the starting job after this.

Here’s hoping. Calderon hasn’t been terrible, but at this stage of his career he would be perfect off the bench as first guard. Old hand to steady the secondary unit.

Man. Grant has all the makings to be a great PG, but he just can’t execute his own offense. He just needs to set himself more on his jump shot, and maybe just slow it down a shade going to the bucket to sure himself up.

Lately Fisher has gone away from always having either Lopez or KP in the game at C. Coincidentally (or not) the Knicks are currently on a 4 game losing streak.

I can understand Vujacic soaking up a few minutes with Calderon out. I cannot begin to fathom what Amundson is doing out there.

I love Lou, but he really is just a human victory cigar or a spot player to use up some fouls.

Amare Stoudemire is a more willing passer out of the post than Arron Afflalo, my goodness.

McRae played over here in Australia for a season with Melbourne. Lower level competition, but he looked like he had the tools to be a decent rotation guy.

I wonder of Afflalo could teach Langston some post moves. With his long ass arms that could be a useful tool against smaller guard

Lou is significantly better than Seraphin

Put them both in a canoe and push it off to sea. I’m still hopeful O’Quinn can be developed into a rotation player, despite all evidence to the contrary.

I’ve never seen Sasha make a basket. I know it’s happened a handful of times because he has a shooting percentage, I’ve just never witnessed it.

@29

McCrae is not a pg at all. He is a score first wing. He used to give the Gators fits at UT.

You could pretty much hear Kyle’s brain whisper “they gonna bench you if you shoot that”.

Grant is really not ready though. He hurts us more than Sasha does right now.

Maybe a run in the D-League for him and a call up for Jimmer?

@42 exactly. Every NBA basketball player can have 20-30 minutes of good basketball. Even Kevin Seraphin had games where he looked like Boris Diaw.

Melo was a +27 in 18 mins that half. Hopefully he doesnt have to play in the 4th quarter tonight.

@dtrickey

Yes, to me it makes sense to get Jimmer’s shooting up here now especially with Jose out. And Grant can use the time.

Btw I’ve been watching the tennis from Melbourne. Do you ever go to see it in person?

It’s all downhill from here for Goodwin, he’ll never have another highlight as amazing as that dunk on KP.

These 3s off the hand off are shots Jose would never take but should take because he is good enough to do. instead of shooting jose just goes into his super slow motion pump fake.

Not a massive tennis fan, but I usually buy a ground pass for a couple of days and go between Courts. Pretty good vibe down there swapping between show courts and the outdoor lounge/bar. Finals are pretty hard/expensive to get to, but I did manage to to Djokovic v Federer on Thursday night which was great.

I watched it. Nice match! One year I’m going down there to see it live.

Definitely. They weather and atmosphere is always great in the city when the open is on. Melbourne is a bit sport cvrazy with the cricket being on at the same time.

We’d be winning by 30 if Melo could shoot

How about if Jerian Grant could finish a single effing layup.

This is going to be one of those games where the Knicks end up winning by 6, isn’t it?

Can’t believe Sasha Vujacic is in the NBA and I am watching him rather than Porzingis at this moment.

It’s garbage tyme. This is eggzactly when you should be bringing in the Vujacraps of the world and resting your stars.

It’s not impossible for Sasha to lose this game for us. That’s what I feel watching this.

Is Thanassis active for the game? If he is, shouldn’t he be in for Afflalo when we get back from commercials?

Nice dat we got our freebie win be4 we get blown out of the water by the Golden State Curry’s.

Prince and Wiggins combined tonight:

5pts 2 reb 1 asst in 62 minutes.

That’s hard to do.

The gardens thirst for porzingis is almost frightening

Yeah, at the game on Tuesday, the reaction to him was crazy. The fans are all in on him.
