He doesn't shoot the ball enough. He can't just be a decoy. We need more volume from him or he's not playable.

The big lineup of KP and Kanter simply doesn't work defensively.

Without Gasol, the Griz have a small, young and athletic lineup out there and the Knicks can't match their foot speed with this big unit (even with Kanter dominating offensively).

Jack, also, is too slow for the point. His minutes need to be reduced. Either stick with Frank or give Burke a look.

Also, I'd rather see Baker than LT at this point. We're missing Baker's defense, toughness and grittiness tonight.

Would love to see Trey get some run with Hardaway tonight. Frank and Jack just don't put pressure on the defense. The pass back to the guy crossing half court has re-emerged for Frank. The fast break with Hardaway was awesome but I was hoping for more of what he displayed during the Net game.

OK....I get it....I missed the last game, and Burke played, Frank dominated.....Whats going on? Do I have to turn off the game for us to start winning again??? Or looking like we did against the Nets?

Is this an example of Coach trying to stay big, even when teams go small?????\

If so, this experiment is failing quick.....Time for some offensive lineups in the 2nd half.

KP
Beas

Needs to play together.

And if Kanter not going to pass from the post, we will lose. This team is too quick with their double teams. Willy btw is great at passing from the post.....mmmmmm

This is starting to get ridiculous. This starting lineup just can't get it done. How long will Horny stick with them going forward?

There is not enough foot speed to guard the perimeter--wide open 3's off penetration.

Time to kill the KP/Kanter starting tandem and to bench Jack and LT for Frank and Baes.

Knicks playing no defense at all, it's pathetic.

Why can't the Knicks defend the 3 pt line??? This has been a problem forever.

Kanter/porzingis is fine. Need to start hardaway and frank. Backcourt speed is key.

Slow feet can't react quick enough and change direction.

Plus, I bet Horny's game plan was to kill them inside since Gasol not playing.

Anyone else here shudder every time Lee shoots? He has such bad form, amazing he's as effective as he's been.
Patience with the rebuild, keep all the picks, no starphucks, and team-first attitude. Marinate a couple years and we're playing like the '72 team. Championship here we come!
