Welp, were gonna have a intresting week to see if were back, or we just played a bunch of crap teams during this 4game win streak, as we got Boston twice and Memphis, with bobcats in between.. We do get Memphis at home, which should help..
i still don't get why you think boston is good. we're gonna blow them out on their own court.
as far as memphis, they're gonna get worked too without gasol.
they do play good defense but they're not a good rebounding team and they're on a 4 game losing streak, 2-6 in their last 8.
they're the 7th seed for good reason, they're simply not that good. they are good at home though... but we beat them last time in their building when they still had rondo and everyone healthy. i'm just tired of everyone acting like they're some team we should fear. we are not the crappy knicks of years past and they are not the legit contender they used to be.
i think we beat them in both remaining games we face each other, and do so convincingly.
the grizzlies are also not nearly as good without gasol... he is a beast and they will miss him big time.
Before this 4game win streak against these nobodys, we were wretched and/or mediocre for about 2months...
So, i'm not sure if that 4game win streak is actually us playing better or if its just us playing putrid basketball teams that aren't even worthy of mentioning? Boston is worth mentioning, regardless of there losing streak.. So in my opinion, its a big wk for the knicks, becasue Boston twice, memphis, and charlotte is like Michael Jordan's Bulls teams compared to the crap we've been beating on this win streak.. I threw in Charlotte because there playing them, not putting them in any good category..
so utah is a .500 team in the west and they're putrid but boston is barely over .500 in the east and they're not?
i understand what you're saying about not having faith in this team though, i've known that for awhile now.
I still dont know if the Knicks will hold off the Nets who are playing well on the western trip. If the Nets go 5-3 or 6-2 that wont be good with the Knicks schedule .It would set up a nightmare first round match up with the Bulls. They didnt beat Chicago this year.
