Ouch. A big game without two key players. I was hoping for Jeremy to take over with Stat out. It's better for JLin to rest rather than risk further injury though. With Baron starting we should see how different the team is. I don't think it will look good.http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/sports/144288265.html
Jeremy Lin out for tonight's game because of sore LEFT knee (I think others said he previously injured his right knee).STAT out indefinitely with a bulging disc in his back.
When Jeremy gets back (probably next game from the sounds of it), I assume Novak will be playing more in Amare's place...and that could help him big time. Need more drive and kicks since the Knicks bigs have major trouble catching passes these days.
I really wish Lin can have a good and fully recovery. Is it really because of his knee or coach want to bench him ???Lin is still practice today and Woodson sound happy Lin is out ...
I don't like Woodson, I felt the same way as yours, I think he was tried to bench Jeremy Lin, he had Knicks uniform on during the game!
Hopefully Lin will fully recover next game, I will pray for him!
This could be a blessing for Lin. If BD plays poorly that will make them miss Lin as the starter. But then if BD has a good game that will cause a controversy again. I'm hoping the Knicks lose tonight. haha.
Am I the only one hoping Knicks lose w/out Lin tonight ? hahaha ..
I hope not. I want to watch Jeremy in the playoffs. Jeremy does not need a loss to prove how good and important he is. Any people who think such a win can prove Baron Davis is better than Jeremy are idiots.
+1 to Cara. Knicks need to get to .500 and increase the cushion for that last playoff spot.
BD played not bad tonight .. he got some very good assists but actually his TO also quite ridiculous ... how come every ppl commend on Jeremy TO but no one comment on BD ? BD got so many years of exp still commit so many stupid mistake ....
Jeremy must be learning the stupid mistakes from being around BD!
I wish Knicks win! Lin will have bigger chance play in playoffs. BD is a good backup.
You always see that JLin's stat line includes this TOs. I will be interested to see if BDavis's 9 TOs are highlighted.Need Knicks to make the playoffs. JLin will get a lot of credit for getting them there. The experience will also help him grow.With Amar'e out, Jlin scoring number should get better as he now becomes the second option after Melo.
Shockingly, BSPN's game recap failed to mention Davis' 9 turnovers.
That's not shocking at all. I expected for them NOT to mention BD's turnovers. For some reason I feel like punching Stephen Smith through a wall. Imagine if Lin pulled a stat like BD. Stephen Ass would be all over Lin's butt.
i'm worried 'bout the linjury...http://blog.angryasianman.com/2012/03/linjury.html
I've said in previous post that BD is not a good shooter, lazy on defense, and lazy to penetrate. With the Clippers he never lived up to expectations and he never will. He is a good penetrator but doesn't do enough of it to spark a team. He loves the lob passes especially to Blake Griffin, but almost overused it to the point of putting Griffin's body at risk. This is the best you will ever see BD play (which is not great or consistent) , because he's still motivated. Imagine when he's not motivated and sulks just like melo. Watchout! I hate to bag on BD, but when he was a Clipper, he stunk up the place. He had every chance to prove something back then when he was as healthy as he could be as a Clipper. He did nothing. Every game he leaves you with an empty feeling, like his reputation as a great player far outweighs the reality. Hard for Knicks fans to realize, like it was hard for the Clippers to realize it until they finally gave up and traded for mo williams.
