As a coach, Mike Woodson is about as dumb as they come.
Carmelo Anthony had been hurting since the second quarter and didn't make another shot until the fourth.
Anthony's struggles JR Smith's shooting and a lineup of Smith,
Hardaway, Stoudemire, Prigioni and Shumpert had the Wizard's looking slow and
Early in the fourth quarter Shump's defense was outstanding and with Amare
playing his ass off both ends of the floor the Knicks had the lead and it looked as if the Knicks had the right
combination to beat Washington. Especially in a game very important because the
Hawks were winning at the time.
What does fat head Woodson do?
sits Amare' for Anthony which throws off both offense and defense for
the Knicks so badly that they couldn't recover and the Knicks go on to
lose the game.
Whatever lies Woodson told himself about
having a chance to coach this team next season under Phil Jackson are
gone after tonight.
Phil was sitting near court side
watching this pathetic coaching and I am certain that if he was the
least bit on the fence about Woodson tonight sealed his fate.
Jackson is not going to let a coach this stupid run his team.
Knicks lose again, Wizard 90 - Knicks 89
