Calming stat.

I just don't get it, some of the individual stats are just absolutely mind boggling, 3pt% for mcbuckts, 57% home, 39% road, same for lee, and franks road #s are dreadful as well. yesterday both lee and mcd were missing wide open base line 3's that they usually hit with their eyes closed at home.

This is how I see it as well. Not sure why we need to be compared to the Spurs at this point when the team is at year zero, and Lance Thomas is the longest tenured Knick.

The only things that trickle down are wages and horse shit

What tends to happen is that when the team goes out on long road trips, they then play better on the road. Right now the team has had a home heavy schedule and gotten used to that way. Once the schedule flips then you'll probably see them be a bit better on the road and less consistent at home. I mean that's usually what happens. Wouldn't shock me though if this team won 12 or 13 road games only and 28 home games. That may or may not get them in the playoffs, but they've shown that kind of level so far and this is with some consistent injuries to three best players on the team in KP, THj and Kanter.

Let's see how the Knicks do tonight. The Heat beat the Celtics without Whiteside or Dragic and they are on back to back

I wonder of we’ve struggle so much on the road because we haven’t had much road game experience. Even if we don’t do great on this big road swing if we can come out with better ability to comepete away from the garden that would he huge.
