I hope all the B-Ball fans caught the Knicks-Bulls game yesterday.
really a fantastic game.
D. Rose's return from injury...first time all year the Bulls had their full starting lineup...Knicks still missing 2 starters to injury, but playing unbelievable since Woodson took over coach.
the Knicks jumped out to a 21 pt. lead in the 1st quarter!-- bulls grinded back with d.Rose getting his groove back in the 2nd half, but MELO drops 43 pts with 2 CLUTCH 3 pointers at the end of regulation and OT to catapult the Knicks to a 100-99 win.
Best game of Melo's time with the Knicks. He actually said post game it was one of the best games of his career.
I am sooo happy with my Knicks after all the ups and downs of the this season. with Lin and Stoudamire both out now we arent really looking at much hope in the playoffs, but i really am proud of how they have come together since Woodson took over.
Vangundy even commentated yesterday that they are playing the best team defense in the league right now, and i have to agree.
If we're lucky we will see this same group back next year with a vengeance, unless the Knicks management F's it up in the off season, which is always possible.
Woodson would be great to be the full time coach, and if the majority of the lineup can stay together we really have something for once that has a future.
Back to back with the Bulls--rematch 2moro in Chi-town, OH BOY!!
