Ironic that on the day we honor Martin Luther King’s birthday, we lost to a team from a state that refused to honor the holiday until recently.
I’m not sure what the Knicks problems have been as of late but I do know we lost 2 crucial games at home to teams we should have beaten.
Vince Carter and Grant Hill looked like they went back in time today scoring 25 & 29 respectively. Either they found the fountain of youth in their Gatorade bottle or our defense that was recently praised for improvement has taken significant steps backwards.
Wilson Chandler also has taken a few steps back since being proclaimed as “Melo Lite”. He did score 23 but on 10-21 shooting including 2-9 from 3 point range.
I know our expectations have been raised based on what we have seen but these types of losses make it hard to become a 46-48 win team. I still believe we can win 46 games this season but we need to win this games to do so. I am not a happy camper right now.
We have Houston on Wednesday. We HAVE to win this game or I might make a left turn off the George Washington Bridge into the Hudson.
