View Full Version : Melo and Amare couldn't get it done, but Lin can?

Knicks have now won three straight games with Lin dominating.

Will he continue to carry the knicks?

Its all about how him and 'Melo mesh, and quite frankly, whether or not 'Melo defers to the crafty PG. As to how many games we will win without our 2 stars, your guess is as good as mine. If Lin can somehow keep this up it won't hurt our chances.

Nothing surprises me now with what i've seen over the last 3 games.

Man the ball movement is pretty good right now, and they are just getting easier shots with Lin controlling the tempo.

According to ESPN stats Knicks are 10th in defense and have been for a few weeks.

Lin is ballin... but that being said, saying the Knicks are better without Melo and STAT is just incomprehensible. Remember the Knicks beat the Nets, the Jazz who have played horrible as of late on the road and are 2-7 away from home, and now the Wizards tonight.

What we have to see is how Lin, Melo, and Amare play together against a good team. I love Carmelo Anthony... but he has got to let Lin control the tempo of the game when he gets back. The offense must run through their pg in order to get easier shots.

Iman Shumpert and Tyson Chandler has made it much better especially since others seem to be putting in work on defense also

But if Lin plays like this then it will become major help when Melo and Amare get back because Amare gets a guy that knows the pick & roll, Melo doesnt have to be the primary playmaker anymore, Hopefully Toney douglas can return to form, Novak getting in the groove, Fields playing solid, Chandler playing great, Jorts coming back soon

Its a good start hopefully baron davis can turn the bench squad into solid core

I'm still amazed at how teams are playing him. I'd stay off him and make him hit jumpers. Go under the screens. I don't get why teams are overly aggressive guarding him, I mean this guy can get by you, he's proven it time and time again. He ain't no slouch, but you gotta give him some different looks.

Raph12
02-09-2012, 02:14 AM
If Lin can continue to play like this, he would take a lot of facilitating pressure off of Melo and allow him to do what he does best, play on the block. He could also run the pnr with Stat, considering Stat needs to be setup so he could finish, struggles to create for himself... I've been saying it for a while, they need a PG, question is whether or not Lin can be that guy.

Lin deserves credit for pacing the game at the temp he wants, keeping others involved, and not being afraid to make teams pay. He is simply smarter than Douglas and Shump, which can keep him in the league much like an old Knick PG named Ward.

But look at the point guards he's gotten it done against:
Deron Williams (Nuff said)
Devin Harris (I'll admit he fell off though)
John Wall (Fastest player in the league with extreme talent)

The opposing teams haven't been good but the match ups definitely don't favor lin and he's been pulling it out.

Melo was starting to swing the ball and get guys involved a little more before the groin thing,he is an excellent passer when he wants to be....cannot wait to get stat back with lin...stat getting the ball rolling to the hoop is one of the most unstoppable things in the leauge...lin is legit!!!! Its crazy how all the "scrubs" are getting off now that a competent ballhandler is running the show...we gotta have novak in the rotation...dude rarely misses when he's got an open look...wouldn't hold my breath waiting for baron to come back but if he does just icing on the cake...loving what's going on right now...let the linsanity continue!!!!

Carmelo and Stoudemire aren't stupid enough to try to prevent Lin from running the offense. They'll both get plenty of touches and shots. Lin will definitely make it easier for both to score.

Considering the fact that the Knicks playing with Melo and Amare without Lin probably would have still struggled against these 3 teams, and now having Lin step in on his first opportunity to start and shine and the kid is flat out controlling the game, I would say he is getting it done.

Kings fans always sound the most bitter, hateful, and jealous fans. It's so depressing everytime any one of you guys post. U MAD????

Probably mad at the fact that Tyreke, Cousins, and Jimmer can't get it done.

The kid is 3-0 as a starter and averaging about 20/10. Go away haters. This kid is straight ballin!

Right now, the Knicks need a real coach. Even Larry Brown as a 1 season rental would help.

Can't disagree more. This is a good coach that runs a very specific system who just now has the pieces to run that system. Lin went UNDRAFTED two years ago and it's taken this long for anyone to give him a legit shot. Everywhere else he's gotten spot minutes without the ball in his hands. You've got a west coast PG running a west coast system. He's no Steve Nash, but he's excellent reading pick n' rolls, and has great court vision and good passing skills. At least in college, Lin could shoot as well. He carried Harvard for four years, and being the only NBA prospect got double and triple teamed regularly.

He's not the NBA's Tebow, he's the next Stephen Curry, hopefully. There are lots of kids in smaller conferences that can play, but the way scouting works you can't send guys to watch them all. So unless they make noise in the tourney, no one gives them a shot. Except ESPN ran a feel-good piece on Lin, people in Dallas noticed, and brought him in as Summer League filler. Now he's the starting PG for Knicks.

sorry but imo a good coach builds his system around the talent at hand as opposed to trying to jam square pegs into circular holes. dumbtoni shouldn't have had to resort to UDFA to find the right fit.

Once stat and melo are back his ppg should drop to around 10-14 but assists will increase to 13ish he is playing with subpar players besides chandler and shump and still getting around 10 assists. Kid is foreal

It's time teams start going under the screen. Am I the only one that realizes this? Go under the screen and force him to shoot.

It seems like he is a decent shooter but let's see him hit it consistently first, if he even will take it at all. He seems like he plays pass first so by forcing him to shoot I think that plays away from his strength. If you go under the screen you can keep him out of the paint where he's been very dangerous on the pass and while attacking.

Team aren't pressuring him. They might be trapping sometimes to force left but just dropping off wont stop him from making plays. If it was Rondo wouldn't be effective, Tony Parker wouldn't have been effective when he first entered the league, and evens wouldn't be effective. Lin is too tough to keep in front for that.

Sure he'll still make plays like Rondo and TP do but there is no reason to go over the screen on Lin yet teams in the first three games have consistently gone over the top giving him a free lane to the paint.

Going under the screen is gonna slow him down for sure.

Nets tried that and he started hitting his little bunny jumper. In fact, best bet is to trap him and get the ball out of his hands.

Chandler and Fields are good players but take a look at who is replacing Melo and STAT

Bill Walker, Jared Jeffries, Jerome Jordan, Mike Bibby, Iman Shumpert, Steve Novak

To even get production from a scrub like Jared is amazing.
He literally is doing everything a PG needs to do.

Knicks have needed a floor leader for years. Why do people assume he will be a star? If he just gets us 8-10 assist a night it's a huge addition.

Oh i took it wrong, Ok I agree with you Im getting exicted seeing him play that way but I want to see him against the elite teams, LA should be a test, Utah isnt really a bad team either but LA and MInn should be a test. if he gets the win against both I Decalre Lin day on PSD! :D

Honestly no offense to you (seriously, you seem like a real good guy)

I'm sick of Knick fans shoving all of their players down our throats.

First its Mare, then Melo, then Shumpert who some Knick fans said he would shut down both Rose and Wade, and now Lin...

Lets just wait and see :)

You're right. But if you knew what D'Antoni was, why wouldn't you get the appropriate players?

good question. the knicks became enamored with melo as soon as it became clear that he wanted to play in ny. i'm pretty sure dolan basically demanded a trade be done, limiting donnie walsh's options (as in, being able to find out that deron williams was available like the nets did).

again, though, i don't even know if d'antoni knew how much of his offense was predicated on a point guard with a pulse. no pro offense should look as bad as the knicks did for the first couple months of the year. it's like rambis running the triangle in minny. there are ad fits and then just bad offenses. i'm still not sold that SSOL was anything more than the perfect offense for steve nash.

Been following Lin for loosely for 2 years now. I can say with confidence, as the coach has said that what he has...vision, speed, knowledge of the game, etc...that won't change. The ingredients are all there for the making of a top PG. What he needed was confidence and getting comfortable. To be honest, I believe he will keep this up, and when Davis comes back...Lin will still be the starting PG. Anyone else notice how humble he is in interviews?

JLIN IS RUINING THE KNICKS.

In my opinion, the Knicks need a new coach to be even remotely competitive. Dantoni has no defensive system and his offensive system relies on a PG, not a star SF, PF, or C. Let's be honest. Dantoni had the Suns during the peak and couldn't get it done then in the West. What makes you think that he can do it for NYC in a tougher conference defensively.

Otherwise, i love the kid. As much as you can call him a temporary blimp on the map, you have to admit that he's a GREAT match for this team. Obviously, it would have been best for JLin to start at GS, his hometown, but the Knicks have a great team minus a PG (sorta...), so not only does he fill a crucial role, but "within Dantoni's system" most of the offense runs through JLin or the PG (so there's incredible opportunity for him here).

The Knicks don't need CP3 to be competitive. They just need a serviceable PG that can distribute to Melo, Stat, and Chandler.

I wanted to ask though... WHAT DO THEY DO WHEN DAVIS IS BACK? PLEASE TELL ME HE'S GOING STRAIGHT TO THE BENCH... WE ALREADY SAW WHAT HE "HAD LEFT" ON THE CLIPPERS AND CAVS.. IT'S NOTHING.

HOZ THE KNICK

26/8 is nothing to cough at. The kid has been playing very, very good (albeit for 3 games).

He's the reason for the Knicks winning streak. He's had help from a guy shooting completely lights out (Steve Novak), a Center shooting 70% for the season (Tyson Chandler), a super underrated SG (Landry Fields), but the main reason why they're able to shine is because of Jeremy.

He's definitely fun to watch. And from interviews and such, sounds like an upbeat, straight edge kid (who is a devote Christian).

The wins are not a fluke. Jeremy went out and won those games.

However, I think I would temper my expectations to see how he does when teams game plan against him.

Jeremy Lin is a great story. If you're a sports fan, you have to appreciate what you're seeing. If not, then you're an idiot. It's a shame that ESPN is force-feeding the masses. It's also a shame that so many threads are created about him. If the Knicks happen to lose Friday vs LA and Lin has a subpar game (compared to the past 3) he'll get strung up and be labeled a one hit wonder. Truth is, he's most likely not a top tier PG and most likely not a scrub. He's probably somewhere in between... which is still good news for Knick fans.

Punk
02-09-2012, 03:49 PM
Wow. For the last time, Melo/Amare were not the problem. The scoring WAS the problem. They both need a PG to get them the ball. Instead Melo played Point Forward all season long and nobody could hit open shots because Amare, Shumpert, Douglas, Fields are not spot up shooters.

Amare needed a PG to pick n roll with, Melo needs a PG to give him the ball on the post because he cannot do that on his own if he's playing the Point Forward position. Shumpert was a SG playing the PG position. Douglas was a SG playing the PG position.

Lin comes in as a natural pure PG and everything changes. All of a sudden the Knicks start putting up better shooting numbers. Because he is a PG that can create for his teammates. Lin with Melo and Amare will skyrocket.

So, again. I do not see what the heck is the problem now? Eveything Lin is doing is what Baron is expected to do. He'll make Amare and Carmelo alot better now. He made Tyson look like Dwight Howard the last 2 games.

And our D is currently ranked 9th in the NBA. Tyson has arguably been our best overall player this season, dude is a monster. Sucks our record blows because he would be getting more DPOY love

So, I guess ESPN hyping the Lakers/Knicks game with the monologue of "Kobe looks to put on a show at Madison Square Garden against New York's rising superstar, Jeremy Lin" is apparently Knicks fans overrating their players?

Jeremy will be our Rondo. That is not overrating a player that is saying he will be a cult hero due to the fact he is asian and he is a Harvard player, nobody in Harvard has had success in the NBA.

But for the Knicks team he will be the engine that makes the offense run much like the Big 3 in Boston, so it is very valid to call him those names but people get carried away with the name vs name comparisons instead of looking at what they do for each of their teams.

We rate him for what he can do for THIS team and he is 23 years old. I understand certain and some Knick fans bring it on themselves but do not act like we don't know what we are talking about. Everyone called us dumb for overrating Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Mozgov and now they all want to tell us we should have never trade them and stats show they were NOT a product of a system.

So, Quit that, please.

as a knick fan, i have to agree with you to a great extent. Jordan Hill, Toney Douglas, and Shumpert were weirdly and wildly overhyped. Landry too, though I think he'll be fine if the knicks actually keep moving the ball around.

But Lin is a different story. No, I don't expect he'll stay at the level of the past three games, and yes, I expect once people focus on him in game planning he will have his own adjustments to make, but the guy has talent and he's a great story. He's smart, he can penetrate and make a decision after making his move, and he has great court vision.

And he still has a lot to learn. He's the one guy I think has true potential. And at worst he should be a very good backup.

I still don't see Melo taking to the brand of ball that has allowed these past three wins though. And while Amare could stand to benefit by having a true point feeding him the ball, I think his real call for ball movement was for ball movement that centered around him.

Still a lot to be seen, but Lin is ot your standard issue Great Knick Hope.

Did someone really say that Landry fields is an awesome player? Oh wow, Knicks fans are good

Well what is your definition of awesome? He's a SOLID player, a ballhawk, who has the knack for making the right play on offense, and hustles his tail off.. Do you agree or are you just hating?

Lol I think these threads should be locked and Knick fans shouldn't even bother. Because it is really said that those who try and make Knick fans look bad usually end up looking worse.

"Awesome" doesn't mean, "he's a superstar" or "great" player. Fields has a great personality, he's got a cool swagger about him, he was a Top 3 rookie last season. That might be awesome to someone, it might be called a solid player to others.

Some posters should be banned for even trying to bait and create their own little ways of insulting the intelligence of fans by breaking each and every word into something that isn't even there.

I guess if I said, Lin is a humble kid. That means I'm saying he's more humble than Rose or Durant, right?

Lin has been playing very good but its been against fairly bad teams. We should have one those games regardless, but Lin has been playing fantastic, I really want to see how he plays against other top PGs in the league, because he played great against Williams and Wall.

I really want to see what he does tonight against the lakers even without amare and Carmelo. He has been playing well and played very well against Stephen a smith boy deron Williams who he thinks is the best pg in the nba. I'm a huge Knicks fan but I'm a realist and think landry has been playing very well but he is not elite and will have a hard time for most of his career with amare and melo on the team.
