    Coach is going to play starters for 34 minutes each in the first 3 quarters. Primary ball handler lose his quickness on both ends and starts racking up TO's and defensive breakdowns in the 4th. Houston loses another close one.

    lol if youre the laughing stock what are the knicks? Chris Smith is costing them in excess of 2 million dollars just for being brothers with JR.

    That and the owner actually came out and guaranteed a win over the Atlanta Hawks yesterday...haha

    If Harden plays automatic loss, if not then let's hope somebody besides Jeremy Lin can hit the three or it's another loss. I don't feel sorry for Jabari ;)

    Can see Mchale going deeper into the bench after multiple players playing 40 mins last game

    We need to let Greg Smith play, at least some garbage minutes. Could of used him in that last game.

    McHale needs to prepare and plan for us being tired.

    The guys need to put their big boys pants on and put in 110%. Because team chemistry is still lacking (compared to last years game) and a national audience I predict a lot of hero ball / ISO and Lin getting low usage while on the floor.

    Going to be tough with so many players listed day to day, dead tired after logging 2 consecutive 40+ minute games, and most of the roster shooting like JV players from the perimeter.

    No idea what we'll see from Lin... he's played a ton of minutes, but then he's going to be in NY against the Knicks. I could see him coming out flat, or just absolutely torching them.

    Think he will start hot but then might get a little tired later in the game.

    Watch Lin perform poorly because of being tired, and then the NY / Nat'l media blast Lin.

    I might use some zone against the Knicks. We don't match up player for player very well with them on the defensive end. Bargnani will pull Howard away from the basket, which will let Melo go one-on-one with TJones and open up the lane for Felton and Smith to drive.

    Use a 4-1, with Dwight manning the middle and TJones or Parsons shading toward Melo. Then just hope they miss a bunch of midrange shots.

    This is going to be a lost. If we somehow pull a win I will be shocked. Remember this is the same team hat lost to the freaking lakers!!!!!!! Steve Blake really???

    I know we have been struggling, but we need everyone to get healthy. Harden(Foot), Parsons(Back), Garcia(Flu). From what I've seen, Harden hasn't looked healthy all season. The Twin Towers have been put to rest and hopefully we can see this team full strength against the Knicks. Asik MUST play more than 4 minutes!

    expected. NY media still salty. especially now that Lin replacement Fat Felton has regressed to his former scrub self and Lin is steadily improving.
