We should win but there are many problems.
First of all Melo said he has no lift in his legs right now.

Carmelo Anthony smiled a What do you think? smile when asked if he played hurt on Monday.
"No," he said.

Minutes after the game, Anthony spoke with a team trainer, complaining of tired legs.
"I don't have the pop, the lift," he said.

Our bench scored just 3 points last night and our stars shot poorly.

We can't win against the Sixers with that kind of performance.

I hope Bibby will be ready for tonight's game because he came up huge against the Wizards and Pistons.

I predicted the Grizzlies would be WORSE once Gay came back. Not enough basketballs to go around. Gay and Z-Bo are black holes lol That said, Amare and Gasol HAVE to play well tonight. I think our front court matches up well with theres as long as we don't let up on defense.

I think we'll be tired and lose this game because of that.

I strongly believe we are the better team but I have a bad feeling about tonight's game.

I watched the okc @ Memphis and the game was quite revealing. even without zbo Memphis has an arsenal of stretch 4s and even Gasol that can come off the pick and pop and drain the 15-18 footer. Gasol had a lethal post game against the thunder, but Chandler is much longer and should br a better matchup.

Gay had an off shooting game making him a detriment to his team. No post game. no playmaking ability. all he did was chuck from outside to the tune of 7-21 (although the Thunders interior defense is legit).

all things considered, we match up well with them. even if they pick and pop us to death like Charlotte, their fours aren't quite as skilled as diaw in putting the ball on the floor or draining EVERY shot.

We really need a win either tonight or against the Thunder.

After that we're hosting the Magic and we don't want to lose three straight and drop below .500

this is my prediction, but for the Sixers game I chose to be optimistic. It might as well be a L and therefore a 2-3
I had them all right up to now ... i can only hope i go 5/5 now

I hope so too.

Like I said 3-2 would be excellent.

So far we're 1-2 so we can only hope Knicks will go out strong and beat the Magic and Suns.

Without melo, we are shit, i wasnt on board with the melo trade, but i apologize, he is the heart and soul of this team. Amare looks like a bum out there, confused, scared to go to the hole. I really see what melo brings to this team, this is his team. He is the eli manning of small forwards ( had to put a giants reference in there)

1-3 so far.

I'm not even mad.
We're a .500 team who will make the playoffs (7th or 8th seed) and go fishing very soon (probably 1st round).

Let's enjoy in a few wins against elite opponents (Celtics,Bulls,Heat,Lakers..) which will make us happy for a second before getting back to reality and watching the Knicks getting embarrassed almost every game.
