We looked real bad. I think we will improve as the season goes on, but yikes.

Mr. Okafor would certainly look very good in a Knicks uniform.

How Derek Fisher masterfully ripped up the Knicks’ rotation

Quote:
Derek Fisher had the Midas touch against the Cavaliers Thursday night.

After his Knicks got blown out of the Garden by the Bulls in their season opener Wednesday night, Fisher didn’t hesitate to try things against the heavily favored Cavaliers, who were expected to roll in LeBron James’ return to the team that drafted him 11 years ago.

Instead, virtually everything Fisher tried worked out splendidly, and the Knicks responded with a stunning 95-90 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 20,562 inside Quicken Loans Arena.

“It’s just trusting the work that we put in, and making sure that these guys understand they’re not just on this team by accident,” Fisher said. “If we didn’t believe they could play at this level, they wouldn’t be here. Our management is showing a lot of trust in a lot of our guys, and as coaches we’re trying to make sure they understand that everybody has to be ready to play every night.

“Tonight should serve as a great example for the rest of the season that if everyone remains committed to the team and ready to play, we’re capable of doing some really good things.”

Fisher didn’t hesitate to pull the plug quickly on players expected to be in the rotation, benching starting center Samuel Dalembert for the final three quarters and only playing

Tim Hardaway Jr. for 4:45.

Meanwhile, the rookie coach turned to another rookie, Travis Wear — who a week ago wasn’t even a lock to make the final roster — for 13 minutes, and Wear gave the Knicks two points, two rebounds and two assists and, most importantly, did a credible job guarding James at times.

“I had no idea, honestly,” Wear said of his playing time. “He called my name and I said,

‘All right, let’s go.’

“It’s kind of a surreal experience [guarding James], but you kind of put that in the back of your mind because it’s just competition. It’s not anything more than that. It’s just me trying to beat him, him trying to beat me, our team trying to be their team, that’s it.”

Fisher’s decision to remove Amar’e Stoudemire from the starting lineup for Quincy Acy also paid dividends, as the hyperactive power forward finished with eight points, 10 rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot in 22 minutes before fouling out early in the fourth — but not before he fought a pair of Cavaliers, including James, for an offensive rebound and putback slam and made an open jumper to help expand the Knicks’ lead.

“That’s my role, to come in with energy and just try to change the game any way that I can,” Acy said.

Fisher has proven he isn’t afraid to make changes, and everyone will get a chance to prove what he can do.

“Always be ready, and you never know when your number is going to be called,” said Jason Smith, who finished with 12 points in 19 minutes. “For all the guys out there, it doesn’t matter … one through 15, at any given moment you could go out there and play.

“We’ve had a lot of different lineups out there, and it doesn’t matter who is out there as long as the spots are filled in our offense and we’re playing good team defense and communicating out there, it doesn’t matter who is out there.”

Re: 2014-15 Season Thread

The most impressive thing about the Knicks last night is that they just refused to get beaten off the dribble on the perimeter with any sort of consistency. Shump, Larkin, and Acy were almost impossible to get past. And while I won't say that Melo, JR, and Prigioni were amazing on the perimeter, they were certainly a lot more locked in than I had ever seen them before. I wonder if this will keep up moving forward.
