Douglas not getting his due?

While some get it that DWTDD means great things some may doubt. Douglas is not known for his ability to play above the rim. Nevertheless we have the final pre-season game from the Nets when TD made an incredible play around Lopez for the win. And there might even have been a single dunk at one point in October or Novemeber. But it was in his first game against Dallas at home the Mavericks riding a win streak and having won against the Knicks by 50 that Toney Douglas got his first start at PG. He had started two previous games with Duhon back in November. He starts against Jason Kidd who is still regarded as one of the best in the NBA.

from The recap

This would also be the largest turnaround for a team lead by a rookie point guard and in his first start at the position. It was a team effort though Lee had his double-double and Chandler and Walker turned up big. House and Duhon of all people played well off the bench. Harrington muscled his way inside and..

"New York controlled the action from the opening bell and had Dallas on the ropes early, leading by 10 at halftime. But the Mavericks weren't ready to throw in the towel. They have been the master of the comeback all season, posting a league-high 17 wins in games where they trailed by 10-plus points, plus a league-leading 18 wins when trailing at the break -- including six escapes during the winning streak.

Not this time. New York unleashed a third-quarter pummeling that would have prompted most referees to step in and stop the fight. The Knicks outscored the Mavs 33-18 in the third quarter, shooting 68 percent (13-for-19). Tracy McGrady scored all 11 of his points in the decisive period. Dallas shot just 8-for-22 in the quarter."

8 of 10 from the field, 4-4 from 3 , 8 assists 21 points in ~31 minutes

With Felton and TD NY is improved over Duhon and Robinson perhaps and

just maybe Amare can hope to finish like David Lee ;-) and well it's gonna be interesting anyway

The center position has Turiaf and Mozgov a much beefier lineup than last year. And AR/Amare for spot minutes.

Prediction: 45 +/- 3
