What's popping is your boy before I get the show started on behalf of all next veins everywhere.
I'd like to send my condolences to vegetable look and to Dennis Smith Jr on the passing of very close family members.
Next fan's air with you.
We support you, you got we got your back, fellas.
We got your back.
So condolences to you, your family, they're in our thoughts there.
No hearts Turn our prayers and I'm back.
Nick's family in Nick's finally got a win last night.
Finally, I not listen, I'm ecstatic about it, and I hope that you're ecstatic about it as well.
But our first win of the season and it was a good wing, you know? I'm saying it wasn't like we.
It was a good win, you know? We had to fight back.
We had to claw back from being down 18 points to get the wind.
But we got the win nonetheless.
And look, maybe it wasn't one of the best team in the league, but you got to start somewhere, right? That's first foremost.
You got to start somewhere.
You started with Chicago Bulls.
Now we face the Orlando Magic by a team that it's much better than I think most people will give him credit for.
You know, they were.
They were close to making the HC last year, and I think they'll probably be close to making the Apes eat again this year.
It's a team that if we, the New York Knicks, believe that we are an eighth seeded team.
It's a team that will be battling against for the eighth seed.
All right, so we're gonna talk about this game and what we need to do to secure a win this game and win our second game in a row, all right, because I think it's Listen, we played after we play Orlando.
We play Boston right.
Getting the victory versus Orlando could be important.
Could be paramount to the Knicks, to their confidence as a team.
You know what I'm saying? Could be paramount to the confidence to their confidence as a team.
We're gonna talk about it today.
We're gonna get into it a little bit.
Ah, God, I say in a check.
No, I'm saying so.
Let me talk to Was there.
He's got his Charlie Brown shirt on again.
I'll give you two homies chillin with the Charlie Brown shirt.
Nomi uh, Isaiah, give me one second.
Let me get you a new muted, All right? And, uh, you know, she was popping with you was going on with you.
First thing first.
I just want to say rest in peace.
The original existent man.
What's going on with Nick's mom and this one? Julia and wretched man.
So I'm praying for his family's play for both their family.
You know, I can't imagine losing a sibling.
So it was the mother, so that's very tough way Reggie Bullock.
Cheers, you know? Yeah.
You know, Listen, I've never lost well, suddenly I've never lost a parent, Have it lost a parent.
Um, but I can only imagine I lost my grandfather, who was very clever.
Me as well is as close to me as a father as it comes.
Ah, as a parent as it comes without it being my actual parent, you know? And it was painful, like, extremely painful.
I can't imagine what it's like to actually lose a parent or losers seven, because I haven't been in that situation before.
I can only think it's crazy.
Seven. Because if you know Dennis Jr.
I think he lost his thinking about your mother.
Yeah, I have a history of history of it, but nonetheless, it is very tough.
And, you know, with Dennis Smith, Jr.
I haven't heard anything about you know how I know it was sudden.
I'm assuming it was sudden.
I don't know if it was something that you know, it was building up and they knew about it.
And maybe then the Smith Jr had some stress about it.
It doesn't matter.
And, you know, we are all his family.
Ah, the respect, man, you know, to from now, going forward until he's back, You know, uh, you know, keep his name out the news, You know, unless you choose to put his name there.
You know what I'm saying? And, uh, you know, out, out, Anything controversial at this point, You know, next fans didn't know if he was going through anything, and you can't expect about course.
You know what I mean.
Um, but now that we do know, it's our job to be respectful for him and his family and the same goes.
Obviously, Reggie Bullock wasn't playing because he had his neck injury.
You know me, Um, but the same for Reggie Book and his family.
It's our job as Knicks fans is my job as a guy that's on YouTube.
And, you know, people listen to my show to make sure that we show respect to both for their families, both for the players and both of their families.
You know, we give our condolences because it's Duke, right? So with that out the way, Yes, sir.
You know, you're very you look very, uh, you know, elementary today with stripes.
But that's a good example.
I don't know if you remember, but during the game And you know Barca's father now about imported new life, You look decided he was like, Man Bob imported 25 10.
The next game, you're gonna be saying anything, you know? Yeah, that's that's what a guy I thought about you the whole I called you.
I called you last night because I was like, Man, how are how the heck did you literally say this Saturday? And it happened in the next game.
I like that crazy.
Now. You got a lot of that. You never know.
I might have some, You know, my handsome.
I might have some information that you don't have.
Really? Said this man never.
My has him in so that you don't have but guess what if I do, I'm not gonna tell you.
I know you're not going. I'm not saying nothing.
Keep keep it silent and I'm keeping it quiet.
And I think if Chicago wasn't must win this right here.
If we were a bird like you.
Like you said earlier, we're gonna be serious about being a C.
This is literally a team that's gonna be fighting for that ape.
See, we gotta gotta do a man because I think a little scream just last year.
And it is They have our numbers.
Last year, they had a number of big time.
Last year, Orlando had our number big time.
There was almost nothing we could do against Orlando last year.
I think we gotta go now.
And it was It was what's his name that somebody just killed us every time ceviche killed us Every time we got blown way, we play as well. Oh, no.
Last season, man, it was it was me, not Chicago.
Every time we played them last season, I think we got lasted.
You know, for whatever reason, the matchups just want Good.
Now, the only thing that was that was terrible.
You know, with this team, though, obviously, is a very different team.
Ah, and and that's the one thing about our team this year.
We don't know what to expect from these guys.
Uh, any given night against any given team because they're Brian knew.
We don't know what they're gonna bring to the table, right? We don't know how they're gonna match up against Orlando right now.
The only thing we know is that Orlando was a decent team last season.
You know, it's gonna be on your team.
I think they're a little hung over from last there.
You think a little hung over from get into the playoffs or not is more expensive for them? They're from Devin.
Been playing good, but of course, this would be the game Will.
You know, I think it's gonna be different.
I think we got the portion of the matching outfit with that quicker.
A little bit. We got a little bit quicker.
Um, guys are a little bit older, A little bit wiser.
My heart a hoax Me howto magic play.
Um, And on a stick, man, there's gonna be frank and r j pretty much invented the ball if they paid under started.
So I do think that's a good dynamic.
Flows like here.
We got a little size on them, I believe, a little more bigger than them.
So I think it's gonna be different this time.
I think if we are, we got a rebound the moment.
But we are cooking with thesis is talk about it.
But let me ask you, this guy didn't get a chance.
And you know, ladies and gentlemen, I know you're here for the game preview, but I didn't get a chance to talkto Isaiah last night at all, because when he logged on, he actually cut Guillermo off or he didn't cut game or Gamow cut me off to talkto.
So I'm assuming that you know, Gamow just wanted to talkto Isaiah more than he wanted to talk to me.
Which That's cool.
Gammell. I get it. All right.
I mean, you know, how did you feel about the game last night, man? I needed to hear that from How did you feel about the matter? Luisa made in the game last night.
What I'm mad about with the game last night, I was a student in my lady, but I was like, Well, I wish I would've went to this game again because it was men.
You told the bowl.
You see the difference? I wanted to say this last night.
This this is what I'm talking about when you I go so hard for Frank.
And it was this Frank before we would call me a frankly, but frank out a major part of doing this difference.
He didn't let his shot affect the way he played defense.
And people don't understand how to use that.
This how big that was for us to have a point guard and no different than the general.
Anything like that boat when yourself not falling.
He still played the events.
He still far over screens.
He still blocked shots. He still doing what he would do.
He had kept back room.
Levine in front of him.
He kept holding people accountable here.
Hey, he was guarding Kobe.
Way called wait and do nothing.
Last thing, this one.
And this is what I was saying. The gamma boat.
Frank doesn't have to score.
We got enough scoring my personal pain. We have enough scoring.
That would do Frank need to score sometimes.
Yes, but there was a couple sox.
That was ago 10 by the way, we're not gonna talk about that.
A couple of shots that he needed.
Uh oh, you know, But, you know, that's fine.
This is really his first game of the season, but he's not gonna be He's not gonna be a on some of them. Literally.
I mean, listen, seriously, literally.
That was just a minute season, man.
Because, you know, he played what, two minutes? Verse.
San Antonio, Right, 18 seconds.
14 18. Whatever.
So, yeah, this was literally his first game of the season, you know? And I've seen people everywhere.
The difference of difference and look at the difference of people that he didn't actually play.
It is good to me.
There's no There's a correlation when he played.
We want Okay, just talk about talk about some of this stuff, right? Way here about Frank all the time.
Talking about some other stuff, man.
What else did you like? My port body.
Like a man possessed that wanted to show his old that, you know, you have talked by not keeping me Arjun Garrett met.
I mean, I think I was some of it.
Let me ask you this, though, man.
See, this is about Bobby Portis, right? Because I agree.
You know, he showed out last night.
Well, I have no choice but to agree because he showed out last night. He did his thing.
Are we only going to get this when he's playing against, you know, some, uh, you know, somebody that gave up on home or whatever you wanna call it? Changes every night.
I was talking to get I was talking to get more about this last night.
I was like, Man, this dude, Jimmy was like, what to do? End up tomorrow.
Tomorrow will a 93 and one block.
And I'm like our whole that this wasn't just a motivation again.
Because players do this.
A lot of players do that, you know, cheating for gold.
So what's being treated in our hope? Open the stock for about four stacks.
And keep this up because he's capable.
Capable of doing what I'm saying. He's keeping clearly.
He's capable, but we've seen it.
They just had speaking system when it not just be motivated by, um Oh, uh, just don't get it.
Just keeping more than even focus on Hey, do this.
Kate, don't do this for the team that Hey, listen, man, listen, You can't be working while you're on the phone.
You know you can't be working.
What? We're trying to talk, man.
You know? Listen, listen, I'm giving your all tomato.
It's either them or me.
Let me pause that out for a second pause their way.
I mean, it's either worker NBK.
I guess I'm going to be almost about moving.
Really? You say you got you got you got You got to make a decision.
Let me get the Andy.
I'll let you go ahead and get the work.
Some business, All right, So so, you know, way so we could make sure you stay in your mama's house, man.
I'm saying you know what? Is she gonna kick you out if you if you don't have a job? Eddie was probably would you, brother? How you feel about last night's game? Yo, what up, guys? You have a show like to join in, But these late games this No, I'm not going to stop me.
You know, the actor showed how was he going to live with more? But that was all.
And I know it's tough for you, man.
I appreciate you.
I appreciate you, you know, always logging in and trying to get in, man.
But I know it's tough for you.
Yeah, the players.
So it's not a problem.
Only I have the strength and power in my body.
I saw, but know what about yesterday? So I guess everybody saw the difference between the team when Franklin on the court and when he's old accord.
So I don't think I need to, you know, sugar coat Frank anymore.
Uh, it if they think it's useless for me to talk about.
You know how good Frank Watts and stuff like that.
I only saw saw and, you know, said it before this He didn't even start.
I think justice is gonna get him a fair chance this season.
We're not gonna see, you know, after winning the all the point guards are healthy and back at the at the team that after two turnovers, crackers don't get Yankton, and then he's gonna have a three game, you know, doghouse bench role.
So I just only hope for that.
Ah, but the patrol and, uh, l but also the last two games, he he wasn't that bad on the preseason, who was looking terrible.
But the last two games, he was looking, uh, you know, like like, effort that came to a new team and the Jell O with the rest of the guys.
So I wasn't that much, you know, upset with him.
I was Dennis off course.
We all know that that he was playing really, really bad.
I was not gonna talk about you know, that why and stuff like that.
Because everybody know.
And we are to have the things that happened to him.
You know, differently.
Uh, me personally, I would ask for, you know, a couple of day of absence before I went on the court, because I don't think you know when you have your mind other, you know, not not on the court with the team that that it's work.
You know who had the capture team like that.
But, you know, I said I'm not gonna put a hold on your bulletin.
Only gets Dennis Smith.
Definitely definitely made.
Um, how'd you feel about Bobby Portis in the rest of the team last night? Ah, well, Bobby Borders.
Uh, not to be pessimistic, but I don't think he's gonna have a game like that.
You gonna get? I don't know.
He had a few of, um, he had a few open with the Wizards and Washington last season.
Yeah, he's called 28.
I don't think that that might be one of his career highs.
Man, I don't expect them to score.
Maybe he's gonna have a couple of 20 point games.
That was the real issues.
He was 100% from three or four.
Uh, he had a couple of rebounds.
I don't know if he saw that The means about him when he was that when he was, I think maybe no, but that there was, like, a question, Bobby that you feel a certain, you know, about your confident and about your shop.
And they did us a screenshot about this.
I'm going to laugh, you know, Caroline.
And he was like, shock.
That is when I think I think I know, ofcourse, I would be really, really happy if he had the game's really regularly.
Actually, I told Mark that, um, I think it's even better than when your players have a little bit worse game, but they haven't regularly, so you can predict some, you know, maybe not, stat.
But how they're gonna play and stuff like that when you've been for them in certain positions and stuff to succeed and stuff like that, it's really hard because we don't know, maybe all of that.
We would have a full court game yesterday, but he didn't get even in a license, though. A couple of minutes.
Yeah, yeah, we don't know if they're those.
Also, I will have the second game of the season even over 20 points, and the next game had, like, I don't know who pure gold made on me.
So, you know, I know that guy that young Most of them, at least that this is a new team.
But for me, as a coach, I would still rather have guys that I know what can go on a regular basis.
And then, you know, you don't know what you're gonna get from any of them on a given night.
Yeah, And you know what the depend on If you're not a part of, you know, but the end deposited stuff, then I am really disappointed in Randall.
I know it's only four games, but from what I see, how he disrupt his team, I mean, our king, the next on often it's really upsetting me.
I know, I know you have a maybe a little bit different opinion on this, but I I would know him, you know, to the work, to toe over, pass the ball at this point.
Then the team, they're going, you know, maybe drop off him a little bit, because when you're getting double and triple teams, and I know like you said it, most of them are after you make the look, but he needs to think about it before even he started to look that he will have to, you know, put the ball on the perimeter for the other guys will pick a shot of something that I really hate.
Guys that know, take bad calls the shots.
And, you know, when you're double team seemed, uh, that shot, it's 400% gonna be bad.
So I'd rather, you know, have awards show drawn the teams, they can open shop then? No.
Ah, guy like like Randall take, you know, bad shock.
Um, listen, we have you know, there's a lot of stuff that we got to talk about Where Julius Randle and how we can get Julius Randle really into the flow of the game.
Um, you know, that's you know, that's it's been difficult.
Has been a difficult task so far.
You know what I'm saying? Getting Julius Randle into the flow of the game.
I guess you know it's on Fizdale to find a way to do it.
And here's the thing.
Yes, Frank, I love what Frank has done did last night defensively now, But the one thing that I I'm not sure he offers yet because he's still young in his career.
Dennis Smith Jr.
Peyton doesn't all for it for me right now, either, from what I've seen is a point guard that can blamed all the different, right.
Julius Randle, to me cannot do it without a point guard that can put him in the right positions.
You don't send a point guard that can, because he doesn't have.
In my opinion, he doesn't have the floor awareness, the court awareness to recognise, at least right now, where those double teams might come from and who might be open.
I don't think he has the awareness to do that.
And you need a point guard out there.
I think that can do it for him.
I'm not sure either.
One of the three point guards at this moment are the point guards that could do it for him.
You know, I agree with Tim and you know what? I would I think that's why business is giving the ball to Randall even to bring it up.
So, you know, he can, like, you know, half his head up and see what the situation can be.
Maybe you can take it one on one right, You know, while bringing the ball up.
That's not what you think.
They even considering him like a point forward.
You know, I don't see why you wouldn't go get the ball.
You know, bring it up to your second high player on the court, man.
So you know, there's a lot that physical has to do the work out to get things working for, for Julius Randle.
Right now I'm going to get a little bit into the preview of the game, right? And then I'm gonna come back to you guys and then that.
Then I'll take a couple of phone calls if you're new to the channel.
Ladies and gentlemen, do me a favor.
If you knew to the channel.
Describe, bring that notification bell.
You'd be notified anytime I go live.
Drop a video opposed to my community section.
And if you want a SportsCastr right now, follow me on SportsCastr, we're about to get, you know, we're about to get into We're about to get into some stuff and I want youto I want I want you to be there, and I'm saying this season is here, so I want you to follow me and guys who were calling in you pace it.
I'm going to get to you guys.
Um, shortly, right now, I'm going to go over the, uh I'm gonna go over.
It's gonna break down.
What? The Knicks and Orlando? All right.
And we're gonna take a look at these two teams, and, um, you know how they compare against each other.
Like we said last season, the Knicks really, really struggled with Orlando.
They really did.
And Excuse me, ladies and gentlemen, let me get that back here.
Phoenix really struggled with Orlando last season.
Um, every time we played him, it was a tough go with Orlando.
We're gonna look to change Det.
I don't want to say tonight.
We're gonna look to change that tomorrow night.
All right? We're gonna change that.
Got a different team.
We're gonna make that difference.
So let's let's go ahead and break this down.
Ladies and gentlemen, I got what I needed where I needed it.
Excuse me for the delay, and here we go.
The projected projected starters for tomorrow night.
First the Orlando Magic.
The game is played at the Amway Center in Orlando.
Florida Start time for the game is seven o'clock.
You could see in our local TV MSG obviously, or our Fox Sports Florida.
Well, if you got league pass, check it out on league past, That's how I'm watching it.
Projected starters for the game.
The New York Knicks Elfrid Payton, that point guard R J.
Buried at shooting guard Marcus Morris.
That small forward Julius Randle at power forward.
And Mitchell Robertson.
That center for the Orlando Magic at point guard is D.
J Augustine, shooting guard Evan Fournier, small forward John and Jonathan Isaac, power forwards Aaron Gordon and as senators Nikola Bozovic.
Okay, now these lineups concern me.
Oh, and let me go back to the Knicks just for one second.
Um, Dennis Smith Jr is going He's not gonna be at the game tomorrow.
There's a death in his family, all right.
And Reggie Bullock.
He would have been in the game anyway, but it's also a death in this family, so he probably will not even be on the bench.
All right, but I'm gonna tell you what concerns me about some of these matchups with the Orlando Magic.
Mitchell Robinson and Nikola Bozovic.
That concerns me.
It does, You know, uh, Nobu ceviche.
He complain the post. You can go outside.
I'm gonna be honest with you.
Um, I'm expecting Mitch to be in foul trouble tomorrow night, you know? So now, Bobby Portis, times, Gibson.
These guys gonna have to do, you know, do what they can against Nikola Bozovic.
I'm expected Mitch might get into foul trouble.
No, because that's gonna be a tough cover for Mitchell Robinson.
In my opinion, I could be wrong, and I hope that I'm wrong.
I don't want Mitch to be in foul trouble, but that could be itself.
Cover for Mitch.
Right? And then Julius Randle, Aaron Gordon.
That could be a tough cover for Julius Randle, you know, right there.
You know, at those two spots, the power forward in center positions.
Ah, I'm a little bit nervous on what we're what we're going to be able to do defensively.
And because of my nervousness, I am expecting it to be a lot of points in the paint by the Orlando Magic.
That's what I think.
That's what I think could happen.
I'm just gonna say it could happen.
You know where Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson garden and going in the global ceviche, you know? So I'm a little bit concerned about our powerful with incentive positions at point guard.
You know l for paying in D. J. Augustine.
It is what it is.
Of course, they got Marchal folks coming off the bench who's been playing well so far this season on in R. J.
Barea, Evan Fournier, Marcus Morris and Jonathan Isaac.
I think the Knicks should win those two matchups.
Evan Fournier is decent, but I think from what I've seen so far, R.
J. Barrett is a better player.
That's what I think.
So you know these two teams, we'll see.
You know, that's all I could say.
You know, we'll see what's gonna happen.
Uh, you know, between these two teams now, it's a little bit more in just back with these two teams, right? Because this also this is Take a look at the team comparison.
All right, take a look at the team comparison.
A looking at some numbers right now, the Knicks average 105 points per game there, one of three on the season Orlando Magic has wanted to one this season the next Abbs.
105 points per game.
They gave up 112 points per game.
All right, the next shoot.
3% from the field, 38.
That averaged 18.
8 assists per game and 20 Tunnel was a game.
That's the That's the Knicks average right now.
Ladies and gentlemen, I think they had 17 turnovers last night and the Knicks are 27th in the league and turnovers at the average 20.
3 turnovers per game.
That's not looking good.
An 18 assists per game.
So the average of more turnovers in assists and it's early sample size early.
Sample size only four games into the season, but those in the next 28 internal and assists.
I'm 27th and assist at 18.
8. That's not good.
The Knicks defense of ratings. 107.9.
That's right. 23rd in the league.
You Orlando Magic and I have the Let me fix something real quick with the Orlando Magic.
I want to make sure that I have this right for you guys.
The Orlando Magic at the moment.
Ladies and gentlemen, at the moment, the Orlando Magic averages 96 points per game.
All right, now, I mean, that's a good thing for the Knicks, obviously.
No, that they only averaged 96 points per game.
You know me? Because, you know, the Knicks are giving up 112 points.
2 points per game.
Listen, we don't want them.
You know, we don't want we don't want a tea.
We don't want the Orlando Magic scoring all over us.
You mean they have some guys who can score the basketball if we allow them to? But the fact that so far this season, they're only averaging.
96 points per game.
It seems like it could help.
And I'm hoping that it helps the Knicks out, You know that.
They haven't got the offense clicking as of yet.
You know me in a minute.
I'm going to get to what the Orlando Magic give up.
I had it wrong that I want to make sure I'm getting the right information to you guys, and I'm getting it to you, right? now the along the magic, they give up 97.
3 points per game.
All right, so that's something that the Knicks have to look at.
What look at as well.
So what? What does that say to you? What it should say to you is that they're a good defense defensive team, only giving up 97 points per game.
That's a pretty good defense team.
Ladies, gentlemen, it's pretty good defensive team now.
They don't shoot well from the field.
All right, let me bring this back over here for you.
The Orlando Magic average 97 point.
I mean, the average 96 points per game.
They give up 97.
3 points per game, all right? The only suit and thirties, 38.
7% from the field and 26% from three.
3 assists per game and only 30 internal was per game.
You talk about a team that's straight out of the nineties.
That's the Orlando Magic.
That's the Orlando Magic.
These guys, when you look at these numbers, that's added the nineties, ladies and gentlemen, you know I'm saying We're a team.
That's that's that's only averaging 96 points, right? 96 points per game.
That's what they average.
Um, only 13 turnovers.
That means they play.
Maybe they play at a slower pace, right? That's night.
These numbers talk about nineties basketball.
So where am I concerned? I'm concerned that the Knicks, without having the type of offense, you know, ah, ball movement in office with a lot of ball movement *** stagnant a lot that the Orlando Magic being second in the league and defensive rating their defensive rating's 94.
5 they're second in the league.
I'm concerned with the next is going to be a lot of isolation tomorrow night.
That's what I'm concerned with.
You know that these guys are gonna have a stifling defense that, uh, stops the Knicks from any kind of man movement ball movement, cutting to the basket and where the Knicks get shut down in that manner, they will vote to isolation.
Now, we've seen it throughout these four games, so that definitely concerns me when playing the Orlando Magic.
And if that happens because that's exactly what happened against Boston, right Austin out of the three teams that we played.
Probably I'm sorry to four teams that we played before this Orlando game.
Austin was probably the best defensive team, all right, As a matter of fact, I'm gonna go down the line.
I'll let you know right now.
Utah is the number one has the best defensive rating in the lead, followed by Orlando in this Toronto, Philadelphia, Oklahoma, Phoenix and, yes, Boston.
At number seven.
The defense of rating is 100.
Okay, the other two teams that we played, the Brooklyn Nets, their 17th San Antonio Spurs, their 20th.
So when you look at the Boston Celtics, one of the best defensive teams in the league so far this season, the Knicks got blown out.
The Knicks got blown out.
Why? Because we became stagnant because they took off.
They took us away from anything that we really wanted to do, you know, as far as moving the basketball, uh, cutting to the basket, no cyber things.
We already don't do it well.
And then you have a team that plays defense very well that knows how to take.
Take it out of what you want to do.
So I'm concerned about tomorrow's game.
I'm concerned about the next offense and dealing with the tough defensive team like Orlando.
And I'm also concerned about, um, how the Knicks are gonna deal with Aaron Gordon in the global's of it.
Those are some concerns for me.
I've been It's gonna deal with those guys and concerned They're not gonna lie to you.
I'm concerned about that matchup.
Let's take a look at some keys to the game, ladies and gentlemen, and, um, you know where I think what we need to do to pull away and gets in victories on that.
Someone used to get a victory against the Orlando Magic.
Start off number one.
We got to get We got to get Julius Randle going.
Folks, we really gotta get Julius Randle going because at the moment it's been, Ah, a lot of scrutiny at the way that Fizdale has used Julius Randle.
You know, he's used a match point forward some, but more than not, the bigger the bigger issue with Julius Randle is how he forces the issue, right forces.
The issue, tries to force it down people's throats.
He was trying to play that bully ball type of game, right? That's what he's trying to do it at the moment.
That bully ball game is backfiring against Julius Randle, right? Because he doesn't understand when and where.
The double teams that companies get himself caught trapped between three and four.
Pete, two or three people every time he goes to the basket, it's on.
Fizdale, in my opinion, is on Fizdale.
So find a way to get Julius Randle free and clear.
Find a way to get Julius Randle moving to the basket, catching the ball on the move to the basket.
So, yeah, so he doesn't have to stop and look at defense is.
And where they're coming from, he doesn't have to figure out.
Figure that out.
You don't get him on the move to the basket.
If you're going to get him in isolation, get him in isolation and get him taking quick moves to the basket.
If he's going to the basket And, like Nate said last night, I agree with him.
Julius Randle, you know, perfect that mid range shot, too.
You know, you don't always have to just ah, borrow your way into into the into the into traffic, you know? I mean, it's a learning process form? No, he's learning how to be.
That guy's a learning process forms so you know.
Well, I'll give him some time.
We'll give you some time to learn.
You must senator.
And like Sean did you see Julius Randle needs to relax.
Let the game come to him. Exactly.
He moves so fast all the time when he gets the ball is moving so fast and on the way to the basket.
And you know he doesn't have time to think and looking assess the game.
This is moving too fast.
So we got to get Julius Randle going.
You know, I think it's important we gotta find a way to get him going, because the more that Julius Randle could get going and he really sucks in the defense and we can kick the ball back out.
We could get them open three point shooters.
You, me and this.
It was shooting almost 40% from three.
So, you know, we need to utilize that that right now that's one of the strengths of our team.
We gotta move the ball so that we can increase our shooting percentage.
Man, we got to get more ball movement.
The ball has to move quicker.
It's gotta move at a higher pace, you know, right now is still, you know, pass the ball, take a couple dribbles past the ball, take a couple dribbles.
You know, we get caught doing this.
We've at the top of the key all the time, and it really doesn't go anywhere.
Is going left and rights not going north and South.
No, I'm saying, you know, this week and it's a very high school play, and I'm not saying that I school play can't work, but it's a very high school play, you know.
You get 123 handoffs and then you get a screen come from the box.
You're saying, Ah, no, I don't know.
I think we need more than that.
Maybe he doesn't feel like the guys could retain it.
You know, that's what he said about last year's guys.
You didn't think that they could retain a lot of stuff, but we've seen the same play.
We've seen a lot of stuff from last year that we've seen this year.
Not much different, not anything really more complex, you know, he said, you know, I know.
You know, Fizdale said we got to go through the We got to go through the, uh, work our way up to it.
Basically, we gotta focus under principles and it will get there.
But we gotta move the ball, increase our shooting percentage.
We can't We can't win games shooting 43% from the field.
We gotta take care of the basketball.
Where averages 20.
3 turnovers per game.
You're not gonna win games averaging 20.
3 total was per game.
It's just not gonna happen.
You might get one if you have a good night, But consistently, you're gonna lose basketball games.
Ah, bad shooting percentage.
Edge of giving the ball back to the other team.
Come on, man can win games.
That way, we got to continue to rebound the ball.
Last night we had 63 rebounds.
This is something that this team can do, and I think this team can be a very good rebounding team.
And if we're going to miss shots, we better be a good rebounding team.
All right? We're gonna Last night we had 2020 23 offensive rebounds or something like that.
Okay, if we're going to be a bad shooting team, then we better be a good rebounding team, especially a good week offensive rebounding team, because if not, we'll be getting blown out the water every game, every game.
So we got to continue to rebound that basketball.
And then let's stay focused.
There is what I'm saying.
Focus is because we have guys Dennis Smith, Junior, Reggie Bullock or dealing with things in their families, right? And these players, they're friends, they're friends.
And so it might affect you.
You saying you may be thinking about your teammates? You don't know saying now you know? So So you know, I want to see the guys stay focused, stay focused, focused on the game, You know, let's try to go out and get us Some women get a win, you know, and not worry as much about what's happening with Dennis Smith Jr and um, Reggie.
But look at home and listen.
It's hard not to worry about a friend, you know, saying I get that I understand.
You know? I mean, I definitely do, but I am positive that those two guys would want their teammates to stay focused on the task that's at hand, you know? So the guy's got to stay focused.
Um, you know, and then you know you of course you can go, and you can give your condolences and all those things you know, after the after the after the game or whatever it is.
Right. And I missed the key.
I don't know what I did, but I missed the key to the game, So I want to make sure that you get this key to the game.
Ladies, gentlemen, I'm Mr Key, so let me come back around them.
You bring this back over here, one more key to the game and this actually should have been number one.
All right, One more key to the game.
That should have been number one, right.
We need a better start to the game.
We gotta have a better start to the game, because at the moment we get down every game except for Boston.
But every game that we've played against San Antonio, we were down double digits against Brooklyn.
We were down double digits.
This is to begin the game against Boston.
We went up double digits, but we ended up losing by double digits.
We went down by double digits.
Sounds like a joined.
We gotta fight. Figure.
We got a diagnosis.
What is it? Why we'll have a game down by double digits every game to start the game.
Then we got a battle back.
And what's crazy isn't every single one of those games.
We had a lead against San Antonio.
We had a lead in the fourth quarter against Brooklyn.
We had a lead in the fourth quarter against Orlando.
We won. We had a lead, obviously.
Be one against Boston.
It was reversed.
That was reversed, Right? We've jumped out to a big lead.
Then we you know, I gave up the league, and then we were going back and forth, and then we gave me a lead and third quarter and they never looked back.
Well, we gotta protect the leads.
I mean, I mean, we got we got a not protected.
Well, we get a lead.
Yes, we gotta protect it.
But we have to get off to a better start.
We don't get off to a better start.
You know, it's going to be trouble all season long.
We're gonna have the battle back from battle back all season long.
It's not what we want to do.
Not what we want to do.
We got to get off.
We got to get off to a better start, ladies and gentlemen.
All right, so those are my keys to the cane to the game.
I will come back to him.
I definitely come back to him.
I want to give a couple of shout out to some people in the jack.
Thank you for your super chats.
I appreciate you let me give a couple of shout outs here before I move on.
Or at least one shout out Big shout out to Kevin King.
You said, What's up? Chat? Nice win.
Definitely a nice win last night and everybody feeling good.
Everybody feeling good that we gotta win last night, You know? I mean, I realize the open.
Ladies and gentlemen, give me a call.
5164 or 5 to 246 We got about 15 to 20 minutes left, so I want to hear from you.
516452246 But until you give me that call, we'll check out to talk to the guys is in a video chat, see what these guys talking about.
All right, um, Andy, since you already there will come to you, you know, tell me what you think about, um, this game And you know, this game tomorrow what we're going to need to do the win.
Give me one second so I can get you one minute. There you go.
And well, I agree with multiple.
You're coming with all their points.
I could maybe specific one thing about losing police on dropping car.
You know, too fast.
I think we need to like I remember the coach, but I think one coach in a couple of years ago said that and on the schedule, they can't have, like, three games, skates off losses, right? I think we have to apply it to the end game he can have spent when we use, like, the 10 points, we go over 10 and you know that the team has us know gets on a roll like that.
You gotta stop the bleeding really fast with this squad on.
We can do it in a couple of ways.
Like we already know one with defense order with offense, maybe.
Can you know instead Isil.
So then just to get a pocket or two just, you know, take off the rhythm of the other team that that's really important.
Because then d a is a game of bronze.
And, you know, if you're not gonna be defending, you're gonna, you know, be yourself in a hole really, really fast.
And that's what we've been doing, man.
They're gonna sell some hole, would have to pull out of it.
And it takes so much energy to pull out of it.
It's hard to play from behind, you know, come back and win when you play for behind.
It is very difficult paper By putting more energy and stuff, my dad and tomorrow I think it is gonna be out.
It's already reported, but I think he's gonna be house over.
Gonna being maybe not short on cars.
But we're gonna have to use you know, that the rest of the cars in a bigger ignore assistant of minutes, I hope the image together well, And listen if l fit is out right now.
If lf it is not out, I have him penciled in as the starter.
If l for Peyton is not out.
But if he is our obviously, frankly, Lucchino would likely start at the point guard spot.
But then what do we do? Is it allows old tree Yeah, that's gonna be the thing.
Are we gonna leave? Embarrassed and then, you know Blufgan Elling, front engined, then away.
So we know that they cross rolls with, you know, on the execution with Frank again.
But it's a really tricky situation.
Well, we saw the best runs we had was with Frank and argue.
But if we are not gonna have no, they're both gonna have to sit on the bench.
That's gonna be interesting, because then I think we're gonna go with.
So So? And the strategy is gonna be really isil.
I mean, no matter who, but there's gonna be isil.
So I think a little bit I mean, honestly, I feel like Well, what about Kadeem Allen? You can call up Kadeem Allen, though.
Yeah, you can't bring up even even for a game with two.
We don't know when you're ready.
He's gonna be back.
I don't know what the stock back right.
That's that's not supposed to be.
No. Tomorrow for sure.
I think it might be a game or two more.
So when you are sure that little elf it's gonna be out.
I think it might be a wise idea to have a goal.
Alan, you're on your bench of these.
You know what? I think that they should call up Kadeem Allen for the next few games with Donna Smith Jr being out.
And if l for pain is not gonna be there, call up Kadeem Allen.
That way you've got you know, you got another guy that can help back up.
Uh, frankly, Latina.
If he's going to be the starter, likely would be the star to call up Kadeem Allen.
You can use Oh, but I think they know it's smarter to use o from the shooting guard spot.
No saying and have him in with a Kadeem Allen or, frankly, Latina so that he can you know, he could just play his game and score the basketball.
You know, I would.
You really need We saw that That can handle you know, a couple of minutes on the point.
So, you know, and he's always gonna be like an insurance policy.
Yeah, You never know what kind of car catch.
I don't know two superpowers on your past or stuff like that.
And then you couldn't be really in a bad situation when you're not gonna have a guy that can handle both right? And so this just in, Actually, about 25 minutes ago, though.
So I missed it then, about 25 minutes ago from the Knicks PR that Elfrid Payton has a strained right hamstring and he's out for tomorrow's game in Orlando.
Yeah, that that's what I was thinking that I heard it.
I think yesterday on the game, I don't know who's who was on the commentary, But I think if they said something about wrist or something like that Now, the hamstring, So yeah, and, you know, have a funny man.
No, you can't come back from it. Too fat.
That would be a no brainer to bring in heavy melon, right? Yeah.
I think that would be the best thing to do.
Bring in Kadeem Allen.
let Kadeem Allen be that I don't even want to say that he'll be the backup point guard, But at least you have another point guard.
No, that would be on the floor.
You know, I'm saying and then you know, he gets and I'm not saying he's not capable.
I'm just saying, you know, he'll get whatever minutes that he gets being the you know, you know, being one in the backup point guards.
And you see here from the Knicks PR since Elfriede Injury report.
Elfrid Payton strained right hamstring is out for tomorrow night's game at Orlando.
So I'm going to go in and adjust those starting lineups.
You know, when put Frank Miller Kina in at the starting line up spot most.
I mean, he's deaf.
You know, Frank Millikin is definitely gonna be the starter s.
So then now the question is, does Kadeem Allen get called up since he's on that two way contract and I think it would be the only smart thing to do, you know, bring him up for a few games.
However, many games that Alfred Peyton and Dennis Miller Jr is going to be out of the lineup and then we've got a look at what that rotation is going to be like.
You know, um, so you know, we'll get a chance to look at this.
Let me show on a screen real quick.
Now what the adjusted lineups look like. Okay.
And then I'm going to get to, um, you know, move on, too.
Next person in the video chest right now with the update with the injury update, you see the you take a look at the projected starters for tomorrow and for the Knicks.
Frank Miller, keen at point guard R.
Bear that shooting guard Marcus Morris that small fall.
What? Julius Randle, a powerful forward, and Mitchell Robinson, that center.
What's your angle? Magic is D.
Augustine, that point guard every four years, shooting guard Jonathan Isaac at small forward and Gordon at power forward in Nikola Bozovic at center.
All right, so that's the reports, uh, coming out of the Knicks public relations department that Elfrid Payton will be out for tomorrow's game.
Look forward to the next to bring up deem Alan so that they can have a little bit more depth at that point guard spot.
It is gonna be interesting to see.
You know how they know how they go about adjusting these lineups and moving these light arms around Chuck Allen.
I'm coming to you, bro.
What's going on, Chuck? How you feeling? So what, No doubt.
Glad to have you, man. So Hi.
How are you feeling? All right, now we know that Frank Millikin is gonna be starting tomorrow.
How do we adjust the lineups? Who's who's coming off the bench? That point guard now? I mean, are you going? I moved in with, uh, now at that time alone with our very okay with facilitating that bell a little bit better.
Oh, they have around there, I think, Uh, because I don't I especially liked the data presented with the opportunity to be Oh, Booth.
Uh, we get to a couple of phone calls, my man.
I appreciate you being here.
I didn't get to a couple of phone calls.
Call the young, live another.
But next was proper.
They were going on until a man.
How you feeling? Um, I just showing Davis the one we told my Julius Randle.
What's going on with you? bro.
I'm all right, man.
You know, I like I like what? I was changed.
I like what I saw last night.
Yeah, me too, man.
I mean, you know, I don't like the fact that we got down by 18.
They had to fight our way back, but I like to wait.
But I like the fact that we fought our way back.
So, you know, that's the one thing I say.
This team doesn't have a quick button.
You know, even though they were down, they came down The reason why they'd be down because they played too much ice.
Old basketball they needed just move that basketball and find cutting people going to the rack, you know, are outside shooting.
Whatever the case may be, they just gotta move that rock instead of playing ice.
Oh, now, Yeah, definitely.
On which you 100% on neck.
They gotta move that basketball and stop playing it.
So, um, it's easier said than done for them right now. You know me.
I don't know what it is, but they have a hard time executing.
Don't that principle.
I mean, hopefully David Fizdale continues to pound its hole, you know, and, uh, stress it, You know what I mean? But, you know, right now, And listen, Orlando's got a good defense.
Orlando's defense is ranked second in the N B A.
At the moment, you know, mean, if, um, you know, if we don't, we don't get it together.
You see what happened against Boston? You know? I mean, playing against a good defense like that, we got blown out the water, you know? I mean, if we don't get it together and and have some good ball movement tomorrow, you won't be able to play against a stingy defense, cut against the stingy defense and and not rely on just one on one basketball, we could see the same type of results mean their defense of ratings.
The ranks second in the n B.
A Celtics defensive rating.
Ah, was 100 they're ranked seventh in the n.
We're playing against the stingy defensive team, at least so far this season.
You know me now you know, that could be so our offense, it has to be.
We've got to be right, you know, mean or listen, we over the average 20.
3 turnovers game.
We'll give up 26 turnovers like we did against Boston.
If we're not careful when I take care of the basketball, you know, no offense is not clicking, you know? And we're playing, you know, just isil basketball, you know? Then we're gonna get ourselves caught into a lot of double teams and turn the ball over those separate things.
So and, Frank, you started at point guard.
We can, then those lazy passes.
Man, you can't just throw the ball out there, you know? No, no.
Best Frank, Frank.
I like Frank, Frank.
Even though his shot a fallen I like that he'd be at least taking them shots and making the effort instead of him passing it up.
Yeah, not on with you.
On which, you know.
So listen, he's got it.
He's got a shot.
Now he's got his chance.
Now let's see what he's able to do as a starting point guard, man.
What he can do it comes So I believe it, Frank.
I think Frank, don't pick it up.
I believe in and I see what he's been doing and he showed me something each and every game that go by that he really want to be there.
I mean, I know he wants to be, You know, he wants to be in New York.
Hey, wants to be a big contributor.
So he got his chance.
See if you could take advantage of it. I think you will.
I'm and I When I say take advantage of it.
I'm not saying score, you know, 20 points.
No, I mean he's gonna play his game.
That's all you can ask for.
Play his game, do what he does and help play lead, be player, lead defense.
And that's what you guys for yet? No doubt a man.
I appreciate the call, bro.
Good. Easy. Have a good one.
Base, I, ladies and gentlemen, we are down to the end.
You know, someone else calls and I'll take one more phone call, but we're down to the end of the show.
I had to keep it short because I got to get the basketball practice myself, so I gotta kind of keep it short today.
All right, But I will be on tomorrow night after the game.
I had to do a post game and talk about hopefully a Knicks victim, e.
So I'm gonna get to the guys in the video chat, and we'll get your last worlds on tomorrow's game, and, uh, they will go send it off from there.
Chuck Allen, man, go.
We want to give us some last words on the game tomorrow.
I had to come back in.
He, uh I Andy, give us some last words on the game tomorrow.
I really think we can.
We can get it up with you, man.
I don't know why I'm kind of positive about yesterday when that 15 alone at the beginning.
Really, Uh, were you able to do it? But maybe it's gonna sound big versus a team like Chicago did Not salute, but no anything.
You already you know, pull up 15.
All run, uh, bring you back in the game.
You know that many causes, you know, at any time and game.
But most of those things, like the dead now big yourself on the whole, because you need more energy thing yourself out on.
And I think we really afford to know Maintaining stay in the game and then No, but that last dagger in a dental border.
Well, you know what I think? Uh, yeah, about that, I think very play a Really? Okay, that's why, you know, with no small number that the defense look at the point of the season, I'm not think that they're worth in the New York, but, you know, I think we still really God, I can't reverse it.
That's a good point.
That's a good point, cause it does seem like they play slow.
Listen, like the place, though.
All right, ladies and gentlemen, I'm going to get out of here really quick.
I'm going to do one last run down of, um, one last run down.
You know, team comparisons and all that good stuff.
All right? Just before I get up out of here, the one last run down and they know head about.
We're going to start with the projected projected starters for tomorrow.
I'm doing a quick run down, then I'm outta here tomorrow, right? Neil Akina, R J.
Barrett, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle Mitchell.
Robinson has to start five for the Knicks.
He's a Augustine every formula.
Jonathan Isaac and Gordon.
That's the starting five for the Orlando Magic.
You see, Dennis Smith Jr is out death in the family.
Reggie Bullock is out neck and a definite family, and we can add to this list. Elford Pay in.
We just found out.
Has a right hamstring, a sore right hamstring.
He'll be out for tomorrow's game.
All right, team comparison.
It's like the team comparison.
Next average 105 points per game.
They gave up 112 point to shoot 43.
3% from the field.
8 assists per game.
That's where the average in the average 20.
3 turnovers turnovers begin.
The next defense of rating is 107.
9, and that's right, 23rd in the n B a.
You Orlando Magic.
They scored 96 points per game.
They give up 97.
3 points per game if they'll go percentage Study.
7% from the field, 26% from three average, 20.
3 assists per game and only 13 turnovers per game.
Their defensive rating is 94.
5 and as good for second in the league.
You know, in the Knicks, like I said earlier, they're all pens.
They gotta pick up that offense, man.
They got to make that opens move because if not, you could be looking at a blowout.
They get if they're, if they're defense is anything like Boston and the Knicks can't move on.
All of us to get caught in isolation, every play and me in trouble.
Keys to the game.
I got to get Julius Randle involved, right? We really got to get that man going, do some things to open it up so he can have open floor to go ahead and score.
I moved the ball shooting percentage like I just said ball movement, especially against a good defense.
You need ball movement, man movement so we could get those shot percentages up.
We can't shoot 43% and have an average 20 turnovers per game and expect the wind take care of the basketball Like I said 20 turnovers per game.
You can't do that and have a poor shooting percentage.
Expect the wind continue to rebound the basketball.
We have 63 rebounds last night.
If you're gonna be a poor shooting team, you better be able to rebound the ball.
I think we had 20 or whatever offensive rebounds last night.
We got to continue to rebound the basketball.
Okay, stay focused on the game.
I know we have some.
You know, some of our teammates are going through some personal issues and you may have that on your mind.
But you got to stay focused on the game, and this is actually the first key to the game.
That's about to come up, right? But we're focusing on it last.
Although it was the first thing that we've got to do, we gotta have a better start to the game.
We've got to stop giving up these double digit leads in the beginning of the game because if we continue to do that, you know you're going to struggle toe win.
You have to fight to get back into every game.
Those are my keys to the game.
Ladies and gentlemen, better start to the game.
Get Randall going, move the ball, increases shooting percentage, take care of the basketball, continue to rebound the ball and stay focused on the game.
I'm glad you guys are with me.
