Are you serious? What more could Hornacek have done here with nonexistent production and execution from our guards?

The rotation in overtime, do you see how gassed that unit was.


We were never supposed to be in overtime in the first place

Frank non existent, Markennen Owned the Knicks, (Phil snickering)KOQ limitations apparent. There was little smart ball and while they miss Tim, Mirotec was traded today. KP exhausted. So many shots way off and hitting front of rim. 0-4 Free throws. Knicks made Chicago look good.

What was that L. Markkanen trade again Phil?

Anybody got Phils number?

This guy looks like a keeper. Bulls got a steal.

Wow....I am so disappointed with this team. I said a few days ago that we might as well start Frank and Dotson in the backcourt and let them develop. If we are going to lose home games to the Bulls, how much worse could they be? It's draft pick time. THJr might be able to turn this team around, but I wonder if it is worth it to be 8th seed.

Our offensive flow has not been consistently the same since Hardaway got hurt.

Folks are overlooking his importance offensively, and he's been a more complete player since coming back here.

We have become too ISO heavy, especially with KP and Beasley, and even Kanter.


As for our guards...If we are not doing our motion offense or just dumping into KP or Beasley, you need some kind of picks up top, and we have not been doing much of that as far as I can see, and lets face it- KP does many things, but he has issues on his picks.

Frank does have to look for his own shot...almost seems like shooting is an afterthought for him, no doubt about that, but again, I don't see the same offense we had success with early.

KP was also lazy on D today...Tired, hurt, whatever, but Markannen has a limited game when he isn't getting wide open 3s. He took 15 of them, and on many of them there was nobody within 3 ft of him. KP can't be looking inside all the time, and he has to anticipate picks and get around them.

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

This is a playoff team with a healthy roster, but there is no margin for error here. We miss Hardaway bad.

agree with the bold parts.
3 things...THJr may help this team get to the playoffs but we'd probably get blown out by Boston 4-0. Unless there is a real chance to get a 6th seed, I'd rather get draft pick. We are past halfway point of the season. Very hard to pull rabbit out of hat on league now. Everyone knows everyone's game.

Frank...we need to have patience.
Lee is having a great season, but obviously not a long term answer at SF, I'd rather have a long term lineup of...
Frank
THJr
draft pick SF
KP
KOQ

We need a center who is willing to come out on defense. Kanter did it last game...not so much this game. that's referencing your last bolded part because Markannen getting open shots was not all KP's fault.

I said KOQ only because he's affordable.

We need THJ back and Burke on this team STAT and in the rotation.

Burke can penetrate and score (no other pg on the team can do this)

THJ can create his own shot and score.

Hes going to be better than KP--physically hes more put together and has a better stroke. KP could do more damage inside if he just focused.

I think thats who Phil wanted in a KP trade--Jalen Brown Laurie M and a pick next year

I agree!!! It will be interesting to see how this team finishes the season with THJ back and Burke in the mix. Adding two guards capable of driving and hitting 3’s could really boost the offense.

Right now, it’s clear frank sucks. Rookie or not, he was a zero out there. Never looks to be aggressive passes the ball immediatley after crossing half court, no explosion and not a hint of athleticism.

KP can’t handle this kid and he’s lost the matchup twice. I’m looking at the bills and all of a sudden their future is brighter than ours.

Agree on sub par coaching tonight, Kanter needed to be out there.

And the Knicks front office should be embarrassed we couldn’t come up with 4MM for holiday and we handed Baker 10MM, perhaps the worst contract outside of holiday this offseason.

Another game where Porzingis will get praise for 10 overtime points but he really let us down. He's not progressing and his forced 3 point attempt in the first OT when were up 3 points and had a 5 on 4 was maddening. And he guarded Markannen most of the game and let him score 30+ points.

Jarrett Jack played well and a triple double, Beasley played well (except in OT) and yet we lose to the stinking Bulls at home. So pathetic
