Rebounding isn't one of our strengths but it seems like we are one of the best teams in the league at preventing opponents to get offensive boards.

3rd in opponents total off.rebounds per game and 6th in opponents off.rebounds %

Interesting stats.

I don't know about a must win but the ramifications of a win could be huge.

I'm confident about tonight. JKidd is playing. No way we lose 2 in a row to these flopping clowns.

I think we would have won the last game if Kidd was playing. We lost that game because of poor late game execution. Felton single-handedly shot us out of the game. I doubt that happens if Kidd was playing.

Also Brook Lopez is out and he's a huge part of their team. It seems like they can't win without him. It's not just a small sample,last season they had a way better record with Lopez than without him. They were a decent team with him,lottery team without him.

Melo scored 45 but he didn't play well. Only 5 rebounds ? What's with the assists,only 3 ?
And he took 24 shots,god damnit,calm down with the chucking.
Also he needed to play 44 minutes to score that much.
Those 2 turnovers as well didn't help his performance.

Not a really good game from him. He scored 45 but he gave up much more in other areas of the game.

Just KIDDing guys,Melo played great. MVP

Seems like Felton does all he can to lose the game for us whenever we play the Nets. He has to snap out of his funk when we play these guys...I was this close to putting him on my shit-list if we would've lost this game. Thank god for Kidd...

Keys for winning in the playoff series against the Nets if we meet:

- send Felton on a vacation

That's the main key.Feel free to add more.

That's all we'd have to do tbh...just lock Felton in the broom closet or something.

My game assessment:

#1. I wasn't a believer in the whole "rivalry" thing, but damn that was a great game. The first game was too. These Knicks vs Nets duels are becoming must see TV.

#2. Felton sucks against the Nets. He was so out of character. As I said before, he's an average PG, but you can always count on him to play with confidence and poise. Last night...not so much.

#3.Tyson Chandler...welcome back. At one point you were kinda making me look silly for a scond. The real Tyson Chandler stood up last night. Overrated and overpaid!

#4 Brewer has GOT to give us more on the offensive end. I love his defensive intensity but we can't have yet another guy who doesn't give us anything on offense.

#5 JR was ON FIRE last night in the 2nd half. He was the unsung hero. I know people want to talk about Kidd but JR kept us in the game around the 3rd and 4th when they went to doubling Melo.

#6 Kidd played his ass off last night. The 3 point shots were great, but let's face it...he was wide open. I'm even more impressed with his defense. He was incredible on defense last night.

#7 Woodson's substitution patterns have gotta get better. There's too many times we have 2 and 3 PG's on the court. None of our PG's other than Felton can penetrate so I don't get the benefit of having 3 PGs on the court. There was one period where Melo was playing center last night.

#8 We need to cut Prigionio's minutes and we need to give Copeland more burn. I think he'd play well with Melo.

#9 That was an offensive foul on Jason Kidd lol He's been doing that all year and getting away with it. Better us than them benefitting form it. But to be honest, if you go str8 up and down, it's a fould. It's you kick or lean to the side, it's an offensive foul. It's not a natural basketball play. He missed the free throw anyway so the Nets or their bandwagon fans can't say jack. As Sheed would say "Ball Don't Lie!"

#10 Every team has slumps at some point in their season...I don't expect us to be any different. That said, we are positioning ourself nicely for when we do. We'll already have won 2 out of 4 with Miami and Philly. We'll already have beat the Nets at least once. We've beaten Indiana and Milwaukee once already. We've beaten the Spurs already. Big time wins! These wins will pay dividends come playoff time.

Big time wins! These wins will pay dividends come playoff time.

#1 TOP 5 duel in the league.

#2 As I said,send him on a vacation when we play the Nets

#3 Yeah,he's overrated and overpaid but we need him. We already gave him the big contract so we can't do anything about it. Let's hope he'll improve his defense when it matters the most.

#4 Agree

#5 After going ice cold in like our 10 last games he was due for a good shooting night.

#6 Kidd

#7 He's a great motivator but sometimes he's too stubborn and don't want to quit playing small ball even when it's not working. He was the one to blame for the loss against Memphis.

#8 I want to see Copeland too. Last time we've seen him he scored 8 points in 10 minutes and didn't play since.

#9 Refs would have never called an offensive foul on that kind of play. It's either a play on or a defensive foul.

10# Terrific start of the season. Not even in my dreams I expected the Knicks to start the season so well.
