Kicks Play Murder Ball at MSG

 

Knicks Play Murder Ball at MSG                                                                                   1/26/10

 

 

                Tuesdays game against the Minnesota Timberwolves showed us how good the Knicks can play against a bad team.  Honestly…The Wolves looked like a bunch of puppies out there…poodle puppies at that; but that's nothing new this season.  This game was great to watch for any Knicks fan.  Everyone on the team scored except guard Chris Duhon and forward Jordan Hill. David Lee once again walked away as the games lead scorer with 28 points and another 10 rebounds.

                Granted, on Sunday the Knicks played like they were handling a bowling ball- tonight almost made up for it though.  Yea, Minnesota isn't that good of a team; yea they're not even a mediocre team, but the Knicks played some great ball tonight.  They disrespected the Timberwolves on a personal level.  After taking a harrowing loss themselves, the Knicks deserve this kind of win tonight.

                The 'Wolves have lost by 20 or more points 11 times this season; they lost their last 8 road games and lost the last four straight.  Coach Kurt Rambis started bench players, and had 4 different players in before 20 points were even scored.  Their lead scorer was Corey Brewer with 22 points.  Every player on the active roster got in game time, and all but one of them scored.

                In the first quarter alone, Minnesota had 9 turnovers which the Knicks converted to 15 points helping them take a plus 28 lead over the Minnesota Puppies.   At halftime, the game was 68-15.   Nate Robinson came off after missing Sunday's game with an injured hamstring and scored 13.  Wilson Chandler played most of the game despite an injury and scored 20.  Al Harrington also played another great game scoring 26. 

                This was an awesome game all around. Dominate basketball by the Knicks.  I know I know…it's the 'Wolves so I shouldn't get excited, but this W should help improve the morale for the team after that brutal slop on Sunday.  Now is the time to swoop in, win some games, and set a standard.  Robinson is slowly coming back, Harrington is on, Lee is playing a great games, Chandler is doing his thing, and Galinarri is learning and slowly making an impact as a Knick.  The players are there, the coaching is there.  The only question is; is it too little too late?  Or will it ever be enough?  Show us why we're proud to be Knicks fans guys.

                In total, the Knicks had 44 rebounds, 32 assists, 10 steals, 7 blocks, 13 turnovers, 20 personals and 132 points.  They shot for 50.5% in field goals and went 17-40 in 3-pointers.  They went 21-25 on free throws.
