Granted it was the Knick's reserves but we won and not only did we win but we held the lead and absolutely laid the smack down. There's no way we would have done this last year and made it look so effortlessly. Loved it last night!!
We did what was expected, but I had my doubts in the beginning. It feels great to know you're the better team, the only thing I don't like is that someone like Copeland can score 32 points. That's an aspect we have to improve next season: front-court, but last year this would be a close game which we would eventually ended up losing by 10.
I don't know if it was just me, but did we seem really, really fast yesterday?
I know it was against a bunch of scrubs, but the ball seemed to be whipping around the perimeter like a hot potato, and players were making passes and moves like they finally knew exactly what they were doing. No hesitations or over thinking.
Biz was flying down the court for blocks and dunks (that come from behind block on James White that led to the McBob McLob was awesome), Hendo was taking whatever he wanted as soon as he got the ball, and even Kemba, as quick as he is, seemed to have an extra level of jitterbugness, and was making people dance like Iverson used to.
I think the best part is seeing the young guys still having high spirits, despite a long tough year. I'd be shocked if they lose to Cleveland tomorrow, I think it might be another blowout with the energy and enthusiasm they have now.
Overall it was an enjoyable to watch performance. It was played at a good pace, and our play making was quite effective. Sure it wasn't against their best players, but it was still a test to show that our players are improving and can get wins. I was very impressed by the performances of Kemba, Biz and co, they went out there and did their job. I hope to see more of that in the last game.
our starting lineup is in fact much better than the knicks third string. take that for what its worth
Our starting lineup should be able to smack down any teams 2nd & 3rd string.
Talking about getting happy over nothing lol
