    Glad Woodson is starting to "figure things out"

    Although, I don't think it is so much Woodson's call as the players adjusting, especially Melo holding the ball and calling for it in ISO much less.

    Woodson f'd up the SG spot by basically awarding it to JR before he even played a single minute. Then committing minutes to him, especially in crunch time, even when he was struggling severely. Never pulling him for poor performances until the last couple of games.

    Woodson should have allowed JR to play small minutes off the bench and ease his way back into the rotation. Let JR show that he was back and 100%. I think by committing to JR as the starter in preseason (because that's what he seemed intent on doing) it was bad for Woodson, bad for JR, bad for Iman and ultimately very bad for the team.

    Hopefully Woodson will continue to cut JR's minutes if he is not performing and that lights a fire under JR to return to the form he had last year.

    Better late than never, I guess.

    J.R. was only finally benched for poor play because he disrespected Woodson from the sidelines and tanked against Boston.

    But I agree with you, better late than never. Who would have ever figured that conflict would be a blessing in disguise?

    So Kyle Kroger didn't shoot the ball well?
    And Teague didn't get to the rim at will and make buckets ?
    You must have been watching a different game.
    This was a good game and the knicks were able to come together and play as one and take the W.
    Atl battled hard but the knicks just wanted it more and it showed.
    So don't say that the hawks weren't making baskets because they were.
    I should know, I was there.
    The knicks won because of melo scoring 35 and at the same time sharing the ball.
    Timmy was huge for us with some big 3's.
    And bargs played well also .
    Kroger was lighting it up from down town until shump came in and shut him down.
    So overall this was a good win and they played hard!
    We didn't win because atl played poorly, we won because we played better.

    hawks had 27 TO's. We let them shoot 60%, this was not how you win a game, this was lucky.

    its obvious that coach woodson is only going to go but so far with his coaching style. he is a good coach.. but not championship caliber yet. once woodson learns how to play less iso , finds a conventional line up. trusts his players. Its something about woodson that seems to not bring out the best in players. I don't like how he dishes out minutes. but im going to keep my mouth shut. woodson seems to not know how to use the team properly. what is practice for. do we have all a.i syndrome. trade woodson before shump and hardaway. I see that as an all star guard duo in two years if hardaway is allowed to develop at the pg spot....

    I'm sorry people, but 27 TOs is not an accident, that is good attacking defense.

    That was part of our winning formula last season, force more turnovers and get more possessions than the opponent, shoot and make more threes, etc.

    Some of it was good defense, but some of it was just sloppy *** basketball. I would say we forced 20 of their 27 turnovers, which is pretty damn good. But Korver was open from three way too many times. How hard is it to just stick someone athletic on him and tell him not to leave no matter what? We are lucky he was brick city in the first half other wise we lose.

    Korver can actually move and they run him around a ton of screens. Its not like guarding Novak out there. He has dropped 3s on like 100+ straight teams.

    Does this mean you will actually post about something else now?
