This was ugly. Neither Amare nor Melo could get a shot to drop in the first half. Even without them we were up and you would think it would take the second half for them to wake up and put the game away but that never happened. The rest of the cast can do only so much. When Monta Ellis started heating up in the 4th it was game over.
Mike D’Antoni said it best: “The whole game our offense was awful. We weren’t in synch, we didn’t make shots, we turned the ball over and we gave them layups. Whatever kind of mistakes you can make, we made. It was awful.”
One bright spot is watching Landry Fields attacking the rim when his shot wasn’t falling and building his confidence back up. As for our two stars, just chalk this one up as a game to forget.
Knicks on TNT tonight vs the Lakers, hopefully things are back to normal in a few hours.
