the spin continues. KNicks lose, they were never closer than 10 before the final score and the lead story is that D'Anton was cheered

@dbb: Did you watch the game? Twice in the last 4 minutes the Knicks were down by 3 points and had multiple possesions to further close the gap. On one occasion, Chandler was called for a charge and he fouled out. And on other occasions, both Duhon and N8 took wide open 3 pointers and missed.

And after half time, the knicks came within 5 points on a few occasions but the Suns were able to build the lead back to 10.

All this while the Knicks could not get their 3 point shooting going and they shot 5 for 37 or something like that.

I think it was a commendable effort on the road. They were again undermanned in that Jefferies did not play after halftime. Somedays the shots will just not go down, but what I liked is the Knicks kept fighting and were hanging around and had a reasonable chance at the end to pull off a win.

I am disappointed in Jefferies. Something tells me he is not going to be the answer for our defensive woes. I wish Donnie can pull of some front court changes to better help defensively. Camby would have been such a great fit here.

Also, I am not enamoured by Diaw and I hope Donnie is not looking at him to come to NY. Bell on the other hand will be a good fit and will fill our needs right now.

dbb, did you watch the game? The Knicks hung around and had a chance at the end, despite having a poor shooting night. This team is finally playing with heart.

I think the Knicks need to bring in Jarred Jordan to compliment Duhon at PG.

They may have lost but they are playing with a lot of heart, and hustling. That in itself is a big improvement over years past. I see improvement.

I don't think anyone is going to give Lee 10M, but I like his game, he's a good role player.
