The Knicks style of basketball is not going to work in the playoffs
 
I can't believe the coach just stands there and lets his players launch up 200 3=pointers a night instead of playing a more organized type of game. How long can this team continuing winning by shooting so many 3's? Eventually the shit is going to stop falling and they will be forced to score points in other ways. That silly sh*t they are doing now is more suited for the street league and will not help them win in the playoffs.

As a coach, if he sees his team had a big lead from shooting 3's that's the time to let them to slow the game down and get better shots. Not continue to come down and launch even more three's when they can start missing and allow the other team to get back in the game.


The Knicks need to change their style of play

It appears the OP missed the Mavs' 2011 championship run...as they were designed almost identical to this season's Knicks.

Tough-minded, full of veterans, always have the floor spread with shooters, Tyson in the middle, and a prolific scorer to rely on (Dirk and now 'Melo).

NYC is primed and ready.

F*cking hilarious. Are people really forgetting how many improbable things led to the Mavs winning the championship? It won't be replicated and just because you can find similarities doesn't make the team anywhere near the same.

For one, the Mavs have a way better coach and a culture of winning without anywhere near the pressure the Knicks are under.

There's no correlation between those two teams and this current Knicks.

The Knicks have launched 40+ three pointers already three times in games. Good luck with that strategy.

You must have missed the Mavs vs the Lakers in '11. They DESTROYED LA by launching countless threes.

What happens when JR smith stops hitting them? You know he is a streaky shooter. And the same with Novak since that's his only responsibility.

I just lol at how people like you are really trying to draw comparisons, I think everyone needs to watch that playoff run and see how it will probably never be duplicated.

Novak isn't a streaky shooter. He's one of the best 3pt marksmen in the league.

J.R. has been hoisting a lot of threes lately...he does need to return to the more balanced attack he had earlier in the season.

He needs to be the Jason Terry of this team.

Luckily playing inside is easy when you have Melo, Amare, Smith and Felton who can beat people off the dribble, and also Jkidd with Tyson on the lob. Not to mention all of these guys can pick and roll with the best.

We launch 3's because the rest of the league can't handle those factors, leaving us WIDE open. Luckily everyone from our gaurds to our bigs have a deadly jumper. (Aside from Chandler)

Which is why we do not need a stretch 4. A guy who can shoot 3's is fine, but it's not what we need. That's why I'd be cool with Anderson but not with Bargnani...that and Bargnani is a piece of shit.

Did you watch that game last night? The Knicks certainly have the potential to do so.

how am i supposed to watch that game and predict how they will play in the playoffs?

im just gonna wait a couple of months when things get sorted out and see what you say then. there's always a small possibility, but there is also the possibility that the heat could beat them at their own game due to superior play-making and penetration. not to mention they have shooters with big game experience .
