Craw had a bad game, perhaps Roy pumped up his ego too much. It wasnt't that craw misses 9 straight or so to end the game, it was that they were all outside. He never tried driving to the basket. He made a bad shot early in the clock that was more of an ego shot near the end of the game with the Knicks up that cost them the game. I've backed Craw when everyone wanted to get rid of him, so a little criticism is justified here. Craw, please take the ball to the whole in the final seconds first. Rememeber your teamates, run some time off the clock and get a better shot then that.

The good news is that Balkman played and showed taht he has an all around game that can help the Knicks, their entire defense benefits from his full court presence, from rebounding, scoring on the break and misses, steals, passing, tipping in missed shots and blocking shots, Batman is the easy choice over Richardson.

Nate showing he is a point guard, looking pass first, what a difference. Only bad thing is Nate stopped driving late in the game and dishing, settled to pass the ball to craw and not penetrate, possibly tired or Isiah calling bad plays. While we're on that subject how about putting Collins in for his defense, rebounding and passing for 15 minutes or so to spell Craw and Nate who were clearly exhausted at the end of the game........you're almost there Isiah, just let Collins and Rose playe more.

Rose showed how his intense defense can help this team and deserves every bit of his 15 minutes and maybe 20. C'mon Isiah, more of Rose, more of Collins, less of Richardson and we're there.

Lee played great on both ends. His passing game is what sets him apart from other power forwards. He shoots a high percentage, runs the court well and is just a joy to watch because of his game long hustle.
