The game is about quick decisions with the ball.

Watching the Bucks you get the feeling that the Knicks not to far away. Bucks have young players making an impact. Maker and Brogdan. Feel that Knicks can learn from teams like Jazz and Bucks. Patience. That Texh on Greek Freak was stupid refs need to swallow whistle there. See LeBron after his basket he literally took a dump in the Pacers and no Tech.

I see zero comparison between either team and the Knicks. The Bucks are long athletic freaks at nearly every position and they are missing Parker. If they hit again in their draft picks and get healthy look out. Then again they would be a nice team to trade Lee too if they feel they are a few veteran pieces away. Lee's contract would not look so bad on a team contending plus he could come off the bench were he belongs.

First if the Knicks add say Jackson or Issac they are as long and athletic. Right now everyone thinks Knicks got nothing but when cooler heads prevail and you look at the Knicks with out the hatred for individual wether they are players or management and just look at the players for who they are you will see that the Knicks are headed in the proper direction.

Besides did you hear that Maker was taking tutaledge from kG. My feeling is we need to expose KP and Willie to as many winners as possible. Nowtzki is a start.

Portland needs a big to replace Harkless who can finish and knock down the three..Harless is an ok piece but not a prime time player..Crabb and Turner signings were horrible..

i am not sure of his numbers but Grant did good things with his minutes. Huge win for the Bulls if they hold on.
I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Grant didn't shoot well, but hit a big three and had a good game overall.

Watched first few minutes of OKC/Rockets.

Not sure what Harden does on D. Basically he stands in or near the lane without moving much. At times he doesn't even seem to look at his man.

Strange.

I'm amazed at the calls Harden gets...How do they justify those calls and Melo gets absolutely abused with no call..

For me, this is why I could never vote for Harden as MVP over guys like LeBron, Westbrook.

The Bulls rebounding could take this series to seven games.

the absolute best thing that could happen to the Knicks is if Boston chokes... I think they'd be much more keen on Melo if that were the case

The Bucks roster plus coach Jason Kidd are on the same-page .. expect 7 games from Giannis
our Knicks optimism are still stuck on rebuilding in the offseason
