Even as a Laker fan I wouldn't be surprised if Portland won. I don't think we're losing on purpose, but I do think we're strategically not trying as hard as we could be. They see the light at the end of the tunnel, the playoffs are nearing, so they are easing back to prevent fatigue.

In all truth I don't really like it, I think you should play hard every game. People pay good money to watch you play... but if it helps them for the long run in the playoffs, I understand. Worked last year, so hopefully it does so again. The effort against the Jazz and Warriors was pathetic.

The Knicks offense has looked really amazing lately...for sure.

We all know the question that remains: their defense. Whether they play Miami or Boston, that will be the best 1st round series. Should be great. It will be a good sample of whether or not defense or offense truly wins in the playoffs...because both MIA and BOS have been a bit offensively challenged lately (Miami; not so much, but sort of). But both those teams are top 3-5 defense.

I really think these playoffs should be the best in a very long time.

Generally, we hold elite/good teams in the East to about 40% shooting. We are 3rd in the NBA in points off turnovers. We play good defense but it's against good teams.

The difference about this 6 game winning streak is we are beating good teams and blowing out poor teams.

Don't know where you got that stat...

I'm talking quarter to quarter percentage. What your stats fail to tell you is that in the Atlanta game they got held to 36% shooting for the 3rd quarter and they picked their percentage up once it became a blow out and the starters were removed.

Regardless, If the Knicks played "NO defense" like PSD says. Then we would allow good teams to shoot over 60%

Well, if they allowed teams to shoot over 60%, they'd probably be the worst defensive team ever...by a wide margin. Consider that no team allows opponents to shoot over 50%, let alone 60%. The Knicks allow opponents to shoot 47%, which is 6th worst. only Detroit, Toronto, Sacramento, Cleveland and Washington trail them. Flip that to eFG%, and you go to 7th worst, and PHX is worse than you. 7th worse defensive efficiency...

No matter how you twist it...the Knicks don't play good defense. Go quarter-by-quarter...or whatever you're saying, but they just don't. They haven't before they trade, and they've actually gotten worse since the trade. :shrug:

Great...Atlanta shot 36% for the 3rd quarter. Congrats, that's a tiny, tiny, tiny, sample size. For the big picture, the Knicks are simply the worst defensive playoff team :shrug:

They might be the best offensive playoff team...that's debatable (Denver actually leads the league in ORtg, but it's close...NYK is 5th)...but they just aren't good at defense.

Whoever they play will be a great test of great defense verse great offense. Should be great.

That loss basically secures HCA for the Bulls against everyone but the Spurs now if it comes to that.

Anybody else feel that the Lakers lost on purpose tonight so they can avoid Portland in the first round?

3-0 vs. Portland this year, and they matchup fine against them. No. Highly doubt it.

You really think the Lakers feel like they can't beat the blazers??

The Lakers had their lil win streak..now they are just rdy for the playoffs to start and don't give a dam about the regular season anymore...

^you dont think they can win in Dallas if it came down to it?
no big

they can beat anyone in the west without HCA
they could beat Chicago too. Boston and Miami are the ones they need HCA for imo

Anything can happen thats why any advantage is better...

And to say HCA wouldn't be more important against Chicago than the other teams you listed is ludicrous. Chicago is only tied with the Spurs for the best Home Court Record 35-5 so if anything you guys shouldn't be thinkin to far ahead of SA.
