We should care of business as long as we don't take this game for granted. I will like to see if Jose gets to play the entire fourth quarter in this blow out. Now that the roles have changed will Jose get more playing time in the fourth quarter or will TJ continue to get all the garbage minutes ? lol

My guess is garbage minutes will go to the one that's had less of the normal minutes in a given game..and in teh close games, if one's on fire he'll just stay in..if one studders the other will replace him...back to utilizing them as a strength.

I'd like to see Andrea bring it tonight.

If wednesday was any indication of things, then this one should be a gimme. As long as the boys keep their eye on the prize....

We need a winning streak!

I think the key tonight is being FOCUS, New york is playing such as shity game that isn't funny and in some point it's contagious, so Sam if you are listening keep the players focus, in my opinion team started going downhill from that game on the gardens second quarter, we stopped playing the way we started and after we accommodated to NY to the point that we were mirroring them in their game, so please lets stay focus nor f...us.

Ummmm awful end of the half. That should never happen against the Knicks with Bosh on the floor. EVER.

I don't know why we don't stick to the starting/bench split. Where was Rasho and Moon?

Why would Mitch take Jose out so early in the second half. We were on a roll up by as many as 17 points only to make the switch and again just change the flow. Jose leads the team at a plus 11 in the first half. The rules just seem to be differant when it comes to TJ's minutes. If Mitch would just keep Jose in that much longer the game would have been a blow out and then mITCH COULD HAVE PUT A SMILE ON tj BY PLAYING HIM THE ENTIRE 4 TH QUARTER.

It also bugs me that every shot Bargnani took after the botched Bosh pass, I would've bet my house on him missing as soon as it was released. Not a good sign.

So far TJ has played twice as much as Jose in the first half. So much to the split time theory. I am starting to get pissed off again on how this team just walks all over Jose.

I'm hoping it'll be balanced out by Jose playing a bit in the 3rd and then playing the entire 4th quarter. But knowing Smitch...

TJ -6, Jose +11. The same pattern we saw in the Detroit game. Ironically, it's TJ's defense that got us in trouble tonight, he was reasonably under control on offense.

and what's unbelievable, with jose we're moving ahead at a staggering pace of 1.3 points per minute. Each minute Jose is playing, we gain 1.3 points. Each minute TJ is playing, we lose 0.4 points ...

The +/- differential between the two has been gigantic this week. Hell, it's pretty much been all year. I think last time I checked Jose was like +186 and TJ was -19. It was close-ish last year with Jose having the slight edge, though that says something too considering Bosh (who is light years ahead of anyone on our team in the stat) was playing with Ford all year.

5 minutes left in the 3rd, Calderon has 8 MINUTES. So much for rewarding him for his unselfishness. I'm officially fucking sick of Sam.

Up to 24-8 now, TJ's played the entire 3rd. Looks like Sam's finally decided to designate the minutes in regular starter back-up roles. Except for the wrong guy. What. The. Hell.
