First of all Woodson needs to fix the starting lineup. You can't surround Melo with 3 guys who can't create their own shot and a guy who can create it (Felton) but is very inefficient at it.
IMO we need to start either
No point in having both J.R. and Amare on the bench when no one in the starting lineup except Melo can't score for sh*t.
Then we need to move the ball and hope the team will get out of the slump and starting shooting threes at least at a decent rate.
Our rebounding should immediately get better with a fix of the starting lineup.
Knicks need to at least get out of the 1st round or this season is a complete failure. If we want to do something spectacular like enter the ECF and be competitive there or even get to the Finals it will only be possible if we play like we did early in the season,that includes ball movement,defense and getting historically red hot from three.
