1st Knick win with Melo
 
Ok this being there first game we have to analyze what needs to drastically change with the team. These are some points I think they have to work on.

1) Billups and Amare pick and roll really needs to get better. I like Billups passing ability better than Felton's. He really puts it in your hands not by your ankles like Felton.

2) Rebounding. Amare had like 4 rebounds. This is poor. He needs to stay around a 9-14 trajectory. Turiaf needs to get off his feet for rebounds as well.

3) The biggest problem tonight was defense. They need to play defense. That's it. Leaving the Bucks open for so many 3 pointers is absolutely horrible.

4) Amare has to cool it and just bite into his towel on the bench. He's too much of a hothead.

Considering not having practiced this game was closer than necessary. TD saved the Knicks tonight!

Melo stops all ball movement which is terrible!

Pretty much all the same problems from before the trade. Gotta love that scoring though.

Melo was clutch tonight. His shot saved the game.

Melo was tight early which is fully understandable.

But when he gets in his groove.....

He really doesn't have any major weakness.

People talk about his defense, but his man doesn't exactly light him up.

Rebounding wise he is always on of the leaders in that area as a SF.

This years he is leading the League in that.

In the fourth, he is clutch.

Period.

Two things that were NOT the same:
Rebounding was good since they out rebounded the Bucks.
PG play was better and more efficient than Felton. Chauncey was PERFECT from the foul line.
Let's not leave out that TD played great. He has a great tutor in Chauncey.

They have been together like 8-10 hours. It may take time to get accustomed to each other. They key to that will be Chauncey. D'Antoni needs to swap out Turiaf for Shelden Williams. You don't run plays for Rony anyway and he is in there for rebounding and defense. He is just no physical enough to knock someone on his ass. Matter of fact, someone get Earl Barron on the phone...Landry got chewed up tonight so I don't know why D'Antoni did not give Brewer some burn to give him a different look at times.

Gallo dropped 31 on him. :confusedshrug:

Melo actually created some turnovers for the Bucks which is an act of defense. Yeah he isn't known much for his D but he was clutch and that is what the Knicks needed to overcome, albeit lowly, the Bucks.

We let the Bucks have ridiculous wide open threes.

Everything else was good considering the team hadn't had a full practice together.

Not being funny guy, but did you watch the game?

The team did an extremely well team rebounding game.

Everyone hit their free throws at a great clip.

Melo took over when Amar'e fouled out.

Chauncey even brought the Denver offensive plays to the game tonite.

Gallo's career high is 31 and he has done it twice.

Against the Clippers and Boston

These are the ones I recall......

3/23/10 Melo 36, Gallo 28

11/16/10 Melo 26, Gallo 21

12/12/10 Melo 31, Gallo 16


I don't think this one is fair but I will show it anyway......

11/27/09 Melo 50, Gallo 4

I know you miss Gallo but come on guy, don't make up shit.

Melo at his press conference stated that he was talking to the team about playing effective defense in order to become a better team. Nice initiative. He called himself a team leader and said that he wants to lead by example and will continue to try and play better defense.

You're right, it was only 28. And 21.
