ya gotta love it when analysis is done by people who didn't watch the game, because it is so on pointOriginally posted by <b>GB</b>!
Good win for the Knicks...but full of aberrations.
<I>Stephon Marbury contributed 12 points and 10 assists for <B>the Knicks, who shot 53 percent</b> (40-of-75). </i>
This team is shooting 42% from the field for the season.
<I>Cleveland's LeBron James collected 13 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds but <b>shot just 5-of-15</b>. He scored <b>only two points in the first quarter</b> while blanketed by Tim Thomas and <b>was held scoreless in the fourth quarter</b> by Penny Hardaway. </i>
Tim Thomas, Penny Hardaway?
He didn't score because it was an off night for him. We all know that neither player is his equal, and we know Jamal isn't a better basketball player than he his. How quickly we forget that little Dr. J reference from a few days ago.
They caught the Cav's and especially James on a down night...and did what they were supposed to do. The Bulls probably would have beaten them too.
Nothing special here folks...move on.
LBJ didn't have a bad game just because , he had one because the knicks made him have one. he didn't get many easy shots the knicks kept him outside for the most part, but to you it seems it was luck. the cvas as a whole shot 47% but to you that was also an off night., the truth is the cavs have beaten mostly nobodies this season (the bobcats 2 times , hawks & wizards) they came into the garden and the knicks pretty much beat them from the opening buzzer. the knicks were just a better team tonight.
crawford isn't any better he is just i guess in your mind lucky , despite not watching it. even though he is now shooting .425 from the field from .386 last year, to you thats no improvement. he also scored 13 points in the 4th quarter to make sure they kept the lead.
i guess thats an abberration too.
