In before, "it's a preseason game!" excuses.

Which always come before, "it's just a regular season game", excuses.



Though, I wouldn't call it desperate for a win. They probably planned to have them play full minutes today regardless.

As i just mentioned in the other thread:

"It should be noted the depth issue with tonight. Plus, I think the team really wanted to win after a lot of those strange calls throughout the game. So the coach let them play.

We should also note that it was not like Knicks starters did not play a ton either. Sure, it was not 35 minutes, but three of them played over 27 minutes."

And I should add that since robinson had to play a bit more due to the lack of depth, it forced Rondo to play the most minutes out of the three.

So one of the oldest teams in the League playing the starters virtually the whole isn't a problem, for a pre-season game?

A bunch of players were missing, but they still shouldn't have played nearly that much.

Exactly. It's funny to see the reaction here. Cs probably did want to win, they always want to win, but what's big deal to the Knicks fans? Just the game before, no starter played at all. But did we make topics about Sixer pt?

How do you get ejected in a preseason game? NBA is retarded right now.
