Evenin', mumps. The Knicks have returned to New York to play the Pistons. Raymond Felton has also returned (while Tyson Chandler is indeed out), so this is the starting lineup:
Starters tonight versus @detroitpistons : Felton, Shumpert, Anthony, Martin, Bargnani."— Steve Popper (@StevePopper) January 7, 2014
Not the lineup I'd choose, but also not the dumbest thing Mike Woodson has decided/said this evening. Look at this shit:
Asked Woodson abt his faith in JR Smith during late-game situations. Said he likes that hes willing to take big shots & isnt afraid (cont'd)— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 7, 2014
Woodson also suggested that he's reluctant to play rookies like Hardaway, Jr. or Murry down the stretch bc it may be too much pressure.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 7, 2014
Asked who is higher on the depth chart between Murry and Udrih, Woodson says: "I'll figure that out when we get out there."— charlie widdoes (@charliewiddoes) January 7, 2014
Woodson, on Bargnani: "He's been a bright spot for our ballclub." Says there's always adjustments when you get player who's played elsewhere— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 7, 2014
That's just all stupid. But hey! The Knicks have won two of three and if they can score enough to compensate for whatever they let the Pistons do to them, they could make it three of four tonight.
Tip-off's at 7:30. This is your thread. This is Detroit Bad Boys. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. A recap'll go up tomorrow. Go the Knicks!
