The million dollar question like everyone is saying, is how will they be once Amare comes back. They've had so much success with this lineup. Personally, I think he should come off the bench, but not everyone is capable of checking their ego to do that. If you allow the starters to keep doing what they're doing, then you don't have to worry about chemistry/turnovers that might cause them to dig themselves into a whole and have to fight back late in games like we saw a lot of last year.
Spurs got cold at the worst time, Knicks got hot at the right time. Nothing you can do about it, but it was a pretty entertaining game.
