Default Can the NYK please ease off the 3 shot

Especially when there are better shot selections. Please pringles tell Toney Douglas that Chicago game was at the beginning of the season. His 3 shot sucked tonight against the Hawks.

They shoot threes.

If open they gonna shoot them.

They need to quit giving up offensive boards and getting their soft drives blocked in their face.

Any NBA player knows that shooting beyond the arc is the hardest shot to take. At the end of the game we will take the amount of 3 pointers shot and we will average out a fair conversion if they were simple 2 point jumpers.

6 of 22 3 pointers tonight against the Hawks. Ok let's figure this out fairly. That is 16 missed 3 pointers. If instead the NYK could have converted some of these 16 missed 3 point attempts with better shot selection to simpler 2 pointers we can average half of these attempts which would be 8 shots attempted for 2 points which would have given the Knicks, possibly mind you, 16 points.

That is just my estimation. Not an accurate one. But a realistic one if you consider how many times Felton, Williams, Douglas, and Gallo made dumb decisions to just shoot the 3 instead of simple jump shoots.

16 points tacked on to the final score would have won the game for the Knicks. And it would have mentally been better for the teams morale during the game.

We aint the only team that shoots threes.

But we are the only team that has a winning shooting threes with virtually no defense on a nightly basis.

Defense wims games, and it always bail out bad shooting nights.

What do you want them to do?

Drive in, get their shit blocked, like the Hawks did all night long.

They either swattef, altered, or flat out blocked damn near everything the Knicks had in the paint.

Felton and Amar'e are the only players on the team wuth a mid range game.

And Amar'e was in foul trouble most of the game.

The same players folks whining about taking bad shots were the same ones on the floor bringing the team back.

Bottom line, this team needs players who care about defense every possession.

I agree about the defense. I totally agree. Knicks have no defense.

But they took 22 three pointers hitting only 6 (18 points). Realistically speaking alot of the NYK have a decent mid-range game. Shawne Williams showed us this. Douglas has shown us this as well as injured Chandler (we can exclude him from tonights loss obviously). I think I was being even more realistic by taking the 16 missed attempts from beyond the arc and cutting it in half to 8 attempts the NYK could have made if they played smarter and took simple jumpers. That would have been 16 possible points for a win tonight.
Yes the on-going defensive problems are getting worse. But tonight they could have won the game irregardless.

They still didnt defend worth shit.

And Douglas is worthless on offense, I dont know what mid range game you have seen from him.

Counting other teams made threes, still doesnt mask the knicks not defending.

But answer this one for me........

Which looks worse?

Knicks shoot bad, and score 102, 5 points below their average?

OR.......

Knicks allow a team to score 15 points more than their seasons average?

Bottom line,we shoot 3's and try to outscore ppl.That's D'antoni's formula.I personally dont think it will win us anything come playoff time but theres no turning back now.That's just the team we are gonna be from now on as long as D'Antoni is our coach.Better get used to it.Any defense or rebounding is gonna come from our players effort;not from our coach demanding it.

The thing that perplexes me is that D'Antoni couldn't win with this system in PHX and he had better players,including a 2time MVP and a better supporting cast.The top half of the east is certainly as good as the west was back then so I dont get why management thinks he's the solution now.
