The end

Frank is a much better defender and shooter and also has intangibles.

Frank absolutely shut Ball down. It was beautiful to watch.

Only 2 points when Frank took over.

He is learning and getting more confident.

Young grasshopper.

He locked him up and stole his BBB's

Best win of the year for me. Frank's coming out party. Big time team win. Beasley, abs McBuckets were awesome.
You playTrey Burke... Wally Szcerbiak

Got to give most of the credit to JH for pushing the right buttons. The NBA is all about Match ups, and he did a good job tonight. The other night he let Baker play 31 mins and finish the game, tonight is was beasly and frank.

He didn't go back to his starters because they're his starters.

Most of us have been patient with Frank and our patience is beginning to be rewarded.

The win in Cleveland to me was the game of the year.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

Wasn't Ball covering McDermott when he was getting open all the time?

And yeah...you could see Ntilikina looking more confident tonight. Still has a long way to go before he reaches his final comfort zone, and he still makes some frustrating rookie mistakes, but you can see him coming around right before our eyes.

EnySpree: Can we agree to agree not to mention Phil Jackson and triangle for the rest of our lives?

Luke decided to switch Ball off of Frank after he nailed those 2 pull up jumpers. Then Dougie beat him up in the paint.

And he still makes some annoying mistakes with the ball and his shot selections. Watch out when he really firms up his technique and decision making...especially passing out of a double.

He was also be fouled on a regular basis tonight...with few being called.

Why, because he didn't buy into triangle.. we still had our best season in 20 yrs with him has the guy. I hope we kick their ass as well, But it's thank god he's gone when we make the ECF, not 14 wins

That was a real slugging match, and fun to watch. Its great to see the Knicks field a squad which can keep up with a young Laker squad who can go on runs. KP had a monster game, and its great that he is going back to what works.

Frank had a nice crossover to get to the rim. His stats are filling up in other categories. Still hesitant, you could see teammates encouraging him to be more aggresive. Overall great game. Would love to see Frank play at a slighly faster gear. Condtioning could help in that dept. Doesnt have to be lightning quick. Pushing the tempo a little more would be ideal for Hornacek's offense.

That was a super sub performance by Beasley. Really focused. At one point KP was settling for too many jumpers. Passed up KP at the arc, and drove to the rim for the bucket. KP took heed and started going to the rim more from there. If the Knicks make the playoffs, a focused Beasley with his playoff experience, would be a big plus.

Man really starting to like McDermott. Think he should be a keeper. He fits in so well with Frank and KP. He can come off screens and shoot. He can get into the paint and score. Jeff's using him so well.
When Tim comes back, at some point I want to see a lineup where we have Porzingis, McDermott, Hardaway and Frank all out together.

I think the change for Frank was dramatic. He has been giving the ball up when he crossed half court. Not tonight. He was aggressive on offense and looked fast. I really haven't seen either of those things from him. He seemed to really be up for his game against Lebron. Maybe national tv and playing against Ball were extra motivators for him. Whatever the reason it was great to see.

Frank is a dog. He's already shown he's not afraid of the big shot and we saw it tonight. The kid already has the hard work and intangibles. On a side note, this game is another example of us getting caught up in the other team's pace. No need to run with the Lakers when we have all these bigs ready to pound them inside. Also, kuzma is smooth as hell.
