Default Knicks fall to Magic in Orlando Dec 30

Howard leads Magic past Stoudemire, Knicks 112-103 -- The AP reports: Dwight Howard had 24 points and 18 rebounds in a bruising battle with Amare Stoudemire, and the Magic beat the New York Knicks 112-103 on Thursday night for their fifth straight victory. Howard also picked up his NBA-leading 12th technical foul—he’ll be suspended for one game if he gets 16, then an additional game for every two technical fouls after that—with more than half the season remaining. The NBA has tried to crack down on players arguing or overreacting this season... Stoudemire finished with 30 points, four rebounds and four assists—and received his 10th technical foul—but got into foul trouble early in a matchup of two of the NBA’s best big men. Both never shied away from contact and showed more offensive prowess than defensive pressure... J.J. Redick and Ryan Anderson had 14 points apiece, helping the Magic build a 20-point lead before halftime and hold on late. New York trimmed the deficit to two in the fourth quarter before the Magic pulled away for good. Wilson Chandler had 29 points and Shawne Williams added 15 for the Knicks, who have lost five of seven.

The problem with last nights game was no offensive rebounds, no bench help, and too many 3-pointers. Typical D'Antoni system.

The defensive principles are just awful. Everyone's always getting beat so everyone has to scramble to help. Then the fact that we never have a Center on the floor and sometimes have SFs guarding Howard.....We got killed on the boards. And it's not for a lack of effort. It's because everyone has to help so much and can't play anyone 1-on-1 that nobody's in position to grab a rebound.

The Knicks should look into grabbing a solid rebounder regardless of point average. They need rebounding. Carmelo avergaes around 10 or 11 rebounds a game. I think that's more than Stat. Most likely more than Wilson Chandler.

lets just face the fact that this is how the knicks will play with pringles as our head coach. So something has to be done about getting a new defensive system in place (a new coach maybe) becuase this offensive sytem of playing no one who can rebound at center isnt winning us any games. Yea offcourse williams can hit the 3 with dwight stationing near the hoop, but more than not its just dwight powering himself at the other end over little resistence. If you plan on playing shawne williams on dwight, then u make sure he is shooting the ball each time the make the other team change itup to ur gameplan, but that is never the case and we need to be more defensive oriented.
