I don't think anyone in his right mind thought that the Knicks were going to win last night but I didn't expect to see just how pathetically they lost.
Jeremy Lin was underwater and awe struck, that was evident from the beginning. However there is no excuse for the "having trouble dribbling" and the play of Stoudemire, Anthony and Davis.
Instead of acting like this was a playoff game, coming out fired up and taking pressure off of Lin they got out hustled and shot poorly the entire game.
Good teams are going to take away the hot option every time. Where were the other ten players when they shut down Lin?
Has Baron Davis turned into an old man that forgot how to play basketball? If Jeremy Lin is the product of the D'Antoni system and anyone at the end of the bench of most NBA teams could duplicate Lin's production so far then what is Davis' excuse?
Is Mike D'Antoni so hapless a coach that he couldn't think to throw the Heat a curve ball just to shake the Heat up for a little while just to get some points and close the gap?
Let's hope the Knicks are thoroughly pissed off and jump on the Heat with both feet when they come in the Garden if they have any balls and Jeremy Lin isn't so dumbfounded that he forgets how to dribble the ball.
The Stephen A Smiths of the world are hoping you fail Jeremy. They are pals with the stars in the league and are laughing at you now because you stole the headlines from their friends and they got to exact some revenge last night. What are you going to do when you see them again Jeremy?
The Knicks Lose Again, Heat 102 - Knicks 88
