They always look good when either Carmelo or Amare are out. It's when they're both on court at the same time that they can't make it work. When Amare comes back he's going to once again clutter the paint with Tyson and ruin their flow with his completely non-existent defense.
There's going to be so much drama when he comes back and they look like ish again, I wonder if Woodson would have the balls to have him come off the bench
Before the game Wade mentioned didn't even want to play NY because of all they were going through. Then he donated his game check to NY after. Doubt the Heat put in their full effort when the Knicks obviously did.
Small sample size. Two out of three of their games have come against an awful Sixers team.
When the Knicks face some actual Western Conference competition, they will plummet pretty quickly. The Mavs, Spurs, Grizz, etc. are all coming up on their schedule.
Look for the Knicks fanbase to demand Woodson be fired and to yank Phil Jackson out of peaceful retirement because the Knicks are .500 again or something. It is as the prophecy has foretold per the silliest and most bipolar fans in all of sports.
It's doubtful. I remember researching this a long time ago, and I think we discovered that the West had a better overall record against the East since before the Pistons Bad Boys era. The East has been bad in the aggregate for decades now.
Are NBA players really that afraid of cold weather?
Most anybody would rather lose in Phoenix than drive through a dark, frozen tundra to get to a Milwaukee practice facility every day. To hell with that noise.
