PREDICTIONS: 10 game stretch after the All-Star break
 
Feb. 20: @ Indiana L
Feb. 22: @ Toronto L
Feb. 24: vs Philadelphia W
Feb. 27: vs Golden State W
Mar. 1: @ Washington W
Mar. 3: vs Miami L
Mar. 4: @ Cleveland L
Mar. 6: @ Detroit W
Mar. 7: vs Oklahoma L
Mar. 9: vs Utah W

I think we'll go 5-5 or maybe even 4-6. Knicks are 14-12 after the 18-6 start and currently on a 2 game losing streak. They haven't played well in a while and the another reason for concern is Woodson's stubbornness. He said he won't change the starting lineup for the game against the Pacers.

Best case: 7-3.

What I think will happen: 4-6.




Woodson is proving to be even more stubborn than D'Antoni. I am really starting to see why he was fired in Atlanta after winning 50 games.

I do think Woodson is stubborn and I dont think he's given some players on the bench an opportunity to fail or succeed. Woody is doing what he thinks is best to win games and not lose too much playoff position. Nothing anyone here or elsewhere says is better or worse than what the coach is doing. With that said its not Woddy's fault the Knicks have 2 healthy bigs. Some of the players that some of you counted on to be great isnt as good as you all believed. Thats where the problem stems from a lot. Its Grunwald's fault that the Knicks has a limited big situation and a KRUSTY bench.

I hope Sheed and Camby comes back eventually. If they dont return I can see .500 because they are going to play a lot of games in a short period of time.

6-4. I really think we beat Miami for some reason. I don't know why, i feel like the day after that game we have topics that are super delusional by NY fans.

6-4, maybe 7-3...they'll win a game or two that isn't expected, and drop one as well.

I dont think 7-3 is fair considering how much they have to travel in that short period of time with a limited bench. 6-4 and 5-5 is reasonable all things considered. There are no gimmies on the schedule.

How I see it:

Indiana and Toronto have been playing really well lately and those games are on the road. Really not expecting wins on the road against two young,athletic teams.
We should take care of the Sixers and Warriors (who have been playing like trash recently) at home.
Wizards - revenge time. I think it's time Miami beats us,I don't expect us to beat them by 20 once again. Cavaliers always give us trouble while we usually take care of the Pistons pretty easily. OKC is just too good while Utah is trash on the road so we should take care of them at MSG.

I really hope we make a move at the deadline. It doesn't need to be a big time move but we really need to do something to address our needs.

Only a big move would address the teams needs, because the teams needs are a big problem.

I have it the same exact way as Clutch. I think we may win that Toronto game only because of revenge though.

They get out on the break and they've gotten rid of a lot of their silly players with low IQ. Woodson better get off his high horse and play a normal lineup because we cannot afford to go small against them. They have a lot of size up front both in their starting lineup and off the bench with guys like Kevin Serafin and Trevor Booker. These are the games in which we SHOULD win but we may take and L. More importantly, it could be a game, like Orlando, where Melo gets unecessarily worn out trying to guard their bigs.

Talking about Wizards...they lost last night and their announcer had a pretty funny moment:
