PREDICTIONS: Easy stretch coming up
 
Jan. 30: vs Orlando
Feb. 1: vs Milwaukee
Feb. 2: vs Sacramento
Feb. 4: vs Detroit
Feb. 6: @ Washington
Feb. 8: @ Minnesota

Orlando and Minnesota combined for 3-17 in their last 10 games. We should definitely beat Sacramento and Detroit at home.
Wizards are playing well lately but we are the better team,same with the Bucks.

So,we're playing 6 teams that are all clearly worse than us. 4 of those games are at MSG.

We should really take advantage because this is as easy as it's going to get until the end of the season.

We should really go 5-1 or 6-0.

These are actually the games I worry about. The Milwaukee games always make me nervous. Orlando gives us a scare and Minnesota plays really hard. I say we go 4-2. Wouldn't be surprised about 3-3.

Well,at least we shouldn't worry about the game against Orlando.
I played it on NBA 2K13. Knicks won 120-79.

Felton had a monster game. 18 points,6 rebounds,21 assists and 3 steals :bowdown:
Melo with the usual 33 points and 9 rebounds.
Amare added 27 points on 12-13 shooting,mostly thanks to Felton. :bowdown:

Magic pick and roll defense in the game is absolutely atrocious. Usually I don't use pick and roll that much but today it was a field day. Almost every pick and roll resulted in a basket.

Felton > Nash + Stockton :lol

21 assists?

If he pulls that off tonite, you must give me some powerball numbers to play.:lol

6-0 on these games should be the goal, time to pad that win record against some subpar comp.

Re: PREDICTIONS: Easy stretch coming up
 
Knicks won by 10+ points,Felton had 9 assists and Amare had an efficient game.

I wasn't that far off. :lol

amare coming along nicely on offense but his defense needs work

6-0 shouldn't be unrealistic

Amare's legs seem to be more lively than I've seen in a while. He's being ultra aggressive which is a gift and a curse. I like that he's playing with confidence but he's also becoming a bull in a china shop. He needs t compose himself before he explodes to the rim. He's getting stripped by weaker players and blocked by guys who really hould e getting posterized.

He should be getting the ball more. JR Smith has no idea what to do with the pick and roll. He's costing us two or three big dunks a game.

5-1. Always easy to trip up here and there.

Maybe that should be a sign that our PG's aren't getting the job done.

Felton has done fine in his return, averaging 13 points and 9 assists on 50% shooting in our last two wins, and less than 2 assists in his return given the fact he had none in our last game.

Pablo has actually been shooting over 60% from the field in his last 4-5 games, but i do wanna see more assists from him.

Defensively they need to apply better pressure.

I was more so referring to Kidd and Prigioni. Felton just came back. I actually like how he's played offensively. Prigioni has been better though. Not good enough, but improved.

Kidd rarely plays the point.

I would like to see Pablo run more sets with amare, but being a backup he's ok.

JR Smith still spends a lot of time running the offense (and wasting possessions), which doesn't make any sense with all those point guards.
