00:01:04
Nick's family.
00:01:05
What's popping is your boy, and once again I am out of the studio.
00:01:11
But we still get it done.
00:01:13
I'm saying we still getting it done here, and B k Tonight we are going to preview the New York Knicks First Boston Celtics in Boston, the Re Max.
00:01:27
And this time the lineups look a little bit differently. These gentlemen.
00:01:31
The last time the Knicks played the Celtics, they were in New York at the home opener, and the Knicks had a plethora of different guards.
00:01:44
Right? You had Elfrid Payton starting at the point guard spot.
00:01:48
Dennis Smith Jr was backing him up, obviously, for tonight's or tomorrow's gain, Dennis Smith Jr is not available.
00:01:58
Elfrid Payton is not available.
00:02:02
So you got support.
00:02:03
Frankly, Lucchino, the only true point guard.
00:02:05
If you want to say to point guard, I'm sure there's a lot of people that'll question whether or not that's true.
00:02:11
But all right, I don't care how you feel about it.
00:02:20
That's what it is.
00:02:21
Ladies and Jimmy All right, Um, but give it.
00:02:27
Leave it to Fizdale in the over coaching that he likes to do, and people can agree to disagree with me.
00:02:36
That's fine with me.
00:02:38
I feel like it's over coaching this team right now.
00:02:41
Once again, he's going to start Wayne Ellington and R J Bear in the backcourt.
00:02:48
Listen, I understand the entire argument about Not that not not the foul trouble argument, but I understand the argument about having, ah, you know, a point guard to come off the bench.
00:03:05
I get it right, but I really do feel like you are holding back R J.
00:03:12
Barrett by starting him at the point guard spot instead of letting him play his natural position, at least at this point in his crew here, right and play and do what he's gonna do best.
00:03:25
I really do feel like it's holding him back.
00:03:28
I don't feel like it's the best for him, you know.
00:03:31
And it's small sample size.
00:03:33
Obviously, the last game Arjun Barrett didn't have one of his best games, and he was due to not have Ah, good game.
00:03:42
It was.
00:03:43
Do you know he'd been having really good games? Um, so he was doing Is it because he started at point guard? I don't know.
00:03:56
I'm not going to say that they are not connected.
00:04:01
I think they could be connected.
00:04:04
But anyway, David Fizdale is going to start our day Bear and Wayne Ellington in the back court once again.
00:04:10
And, of course, we're likely gonna have markets.
00:04:13
Morris and Julius Randle started together, and I think that's a mistake.
00:04:16
I think both of those mistakes are mistakes, and I think there needs to be a serious change to this starting lineup.
00:04:26
Serious tickets to the starting lineup.
00:04:28
There's too much one on one, too much isolation.
00:04:31
Um, not enough ball, movie or man.
00:04:33
Move me, you know? What can you say? You know, I'm saying, What can you say? And if you hear an echo, you hear the echo because of the room that a man.
00:04:45
So you probably hear a lot of reverb, you know, because you know, he's got high ceilings, know that kind of stuff, You know, school.
00:04:53
I'm saying we still doing what we do.
00:04:56
You know me.
00:04:57
No, but that's the story comes out. It came today.
00:05:00
I don't like it.
00:05:01
I don't want to see R.
00:05:02
J.
00:05:03
Barrett running that point guard spot.
00:05:04
I'm not saying that he can't do it, and he can't learn to do it, but I want to see Berit at his natural position with Frank Miller Keena at the point guard spot.
00:05:16
At this point in time, I feel like Fizdale is simply over coaching the team.
00:05:23
You know me just over coaching the team.
00:05:25
You know, sometimes you just got to do what's simple.
00:05:28
That's it.
00:05:29
You don't have to over coach.
00:05:30
He just got to do what? Simple.
00:05:33
And this is one of those times where you just got to do what simple.
00:05:37
You know, that's about it.
00:05:39
Um, we'll see how I will say this.
00:05:42
I will say this.
00:05:43
I did think that it was some better, more ball movement in the beginning of that game against the Orlando Magic Better ball movement in the first half.
00:05:56
It stalled in the second half due to hetero born isolation play.
00:06:02
You know, I'm saying it's stalled.
00:06:07
We'll see if we, you know, we'll see if we learn from it.
00:06:10
We're playing a better defense.
00:06:13
No, I'm sorry.
00:06:14
We're not playing a better defense.
00:06:15
We're playing another good defense.
00:06:18
The Boston Celtics are, I think, 7/9 in the league in defense of rating right now.
00:06:25
All right.
00:06:26
Deal lined the magic was ranked number two.
00:06:28
Now, I think they're ranking was had a little bit more to do with the pace of play, you know? But I'm not happy with this.
00:06:39
R J.
00:06:40
Barrett and Wayne Ellington in the backcourt.
00:06:42
You know, saying I got game on the chat.
00:06:43
I want to check and make sure that Gamow can hear me.
00:06:46
Yeah. Okay. Hear me.
00:06:48
All right.
00:06:49
Good.
00:06:50
And I can hear you as well.
00:06:52
I got a different.
00:06:53
I got a different set up here, you know, saying so what you say.
00:07:03
What do you think about this? Uh, r J Bear and Wayne Elton starting in the back court once again against the Celtics.
00:07:18
Hold on one second.
00:07:19
One second. One second.
00:07:20
Okay. There you go. Now they can hear you. Now, go ahead.
00:07:22
I'm sorry, my bad guys.
00:07:24
Yo.
00:07:25
Yeah, It's trash, man.
00:07:27
Um is, though is officially, um, he's a culture out of plan.
00:07:34
He has no idea what he's doing at best. He's following politics.
00:07:38
Um, you know, again, where Frank is out there be You're running two guys, and as much as I like r J in the PG position, that's you.
00:07:48
That's mostly if we have.
00:07:50
If we had a support of shooting guard or a system where the ball is moving around, I will understand.
00:07:56
Well, this is a team that you're gonna have to grind it out every game, have a chance, and we've already given up 34 games or whatever record is that we could have one.
00:08:07
Or, you know, we could have done something if we had a defensive presence.
00:08:12
I'm sorry, but you win and you end the game.
00:08:16
The defense.
00:08:18
You need to have Frank in that line of not just because the defense, but also he can move the ball around now.
00:08:23
Don't get me wrong.
00:08:24
I like Arjun, but again, like I said, fizzles gonna burn R J out because he's he's infatuated with a guy that he drives and then he could get production from He's gonna burn this Korg out.
00:08:37
Why not have a so called veteran and freight who can least push the ball around? Has that point our mindset? And at the very least, we'll give you the defense to offset, if not shut down, offset or or nullify a Kemba Walker, who got hot in the fourth quarter or in the second half against us or the other kid.
00:08:59
The one for her dude won't the dreads or it's Marcus Smart.
00:09:03
Who hit? I don't know how many threes in the first quarter against his first quarter second quarter against us.
00:09:08
Ah, I'm tired of I'm not gonna fire bandwagon yet.
00:09:13
Well, I'm starting to get tired of physio men.
00:09:15
He talks, but he has no idea how easy it is.
00:09:18
A used car salesman.
00:09:19
I don't know what he learned with with With With Pat Riley.
00:09:23
It doesn't seem like you learned much.
00:09:24
I don't know what he learned, what he was supposed to.
00:09:26
Even though I mean, obviously, Pat Rice put it all on the same umbrella.
00:09:29
Yeah.
00:09:30
I don't understand what it's like. Sin.
00:09:32
Why wouldn't you start, Frank? And the thing that gets me mad and the thing that I'm so disgustingly right now, I know that DOJ lost his step, mom, but I think he found out about it after the game.
00:09:44
Correct.
00:09:45
So when he had him in that game that we went to you saw he didn't do it in the first half. Fine.
00:09:50
Everybody was saying, put frank in because it's the logical thing is a struggling right.
00:09:55
He puts his guy in again.
00:09:58
And yet when it comes to Frank, who shone your lease when he's in there except for the Spurs game, he gives you defense.
00:10:06
That can at least keep your team at the very least, level.
00:10:09
What, another team? That's offensively.
00:10:11
My friends have minded.
00:10:14
He doesn't want to put played his kid, and and now he has a true thing going on, and we don't know where he is.
00:10:19
So the starting lineup of elements in we'll get rid of you trying points. That's one thing.
00:10:24
If you try to get points, then why don't you sit Morris? Because Morris, for some reason, thinks he's Kobe and he shoot out of his his butt.
00:10:32
And for some reason he doesn't.
00:10:34
He wants to play where he's playing for his contract now, instead of being this defensive leader who can give us the shots here and there and what not like, you know, I mean, like, it's like fizzle, like when this guy talks.
00:10:44
I just get annoyed with because I know it's all B s man for you.
00:10:47
Do not start Frank again, totally set the tone defensively which you need it in that first game of Marcus Smart hit 34 threes on us.
00:10:54
This is annoying.
00:10:56
Brooke, this is why last and we got to go to this stuff.
00:10:59
This is why I get ****ed with basketball coaches.
00:11:01
Man is like, when What? The thing that happens, we'll walk on and guys who are the so called chosen ones of the team.
00:11:09
My cousin Rennes in gay went to Ally.
00:11:11
You didn't play high school ball.
00:11:13
You went toe ally, you and he.
00:11:14
Hey, didn't I get any burn and he would kill whatever he got in you go.
00:11:19
Ass is a guy named Jamal.
00:11:21
Um, his name is Jamal wins.
00:11:23
He works at St Francis.
00:11:25
He was CEO and his here.
00:11:26
You could go to the banner, go to St Francis.
00:11:28
His name is on a bandage. Jamal Williams.
00:11:30
I think it is.
00:11:31
And he would tell you you and I played my cousin, you know, instrument in here.
00:11:35
And he was like your brother.
00:11:36
Your cousin was nice.
00:11:38
It was like everyone was like, I was a travesty.
00:11:40
This kid in play because he was a walk on.
00:11:42
He was beating other kids who were, Ah, given scholarships because you don't have a scholarship.
00:11:49
He couldn't eat in play, and I all semi this guy could have, at the very least, bring us some of the team.
00:11:53
Yeah, this is what happens when people lose faith.
00:11:56
People's careers shatter or it falls apart because these stupid coaches who have these politics don't want to actually win.
00:12:04
But what they have, they want to go and win through politics or satisfied contracts and stuff.
00:12:10
And this is what I'm seeing with this guy, man, for you to put Dia's J when he was struggling.
00:12:14
But it takes is a struggle for you to put Frank in.
00:12:17
Even though we won one of those games because of Frank's defense, this is my bottom and that maybe you could make some sense of it for us.
00:12:26
Man, can you make some sense of in fours? Viv makes him ***ually brought.
00:12:31
Doesn't said I can't rationalize.
00:12:34
Lineup has problems.
00:12:36
It's beyond the point guard from two.
00:12:39
Like the point guard issue, it is one issue, often overall problem with the rosters.
00:12:46
It is, um, I think that just for Morris and Randall together is just not.
00:12:54
It's not a good parent of It's You could be, you know, situational pairing.
00:12:59
But it's not a good pairing to start off.
00:13:02
Turn off the game. Started the quarters.
00:13:04
Um, start of the half.
00:13:05
What? Whatever it is, I don't like that Perry.
00:13:08
It seems to kind of, you know, neutralize Mitch a bit.
00:13:12
And as a reason we've seen Mitch is minutes get cut off.
00:13:16
And Wayne Ellington? The problem is, Wayne is that Notre like he If he's not hitting a shot, he's useless.
00:13:23
Right? And you know what? God, like Wayne Ellington.
00:13:25
They're very, you know, they're hot, They're hot when they're cool, when they're not in there.
00:13:30
Completely useless.
00:13:32
So, uh, you know, really, what a book? But the magic game board out, too, is that none of them hit shots.
00:13:38
None of the more important guys have shots.
00:13:40
And when they didn't hit shocks, you know, we basically just couldn't score.
00:13:44
And that was the reason that we we sunk as it is now for the lineup itself, right? Look, I think they got they got to go 10.
00:13:54
It's just they have to go 10.
00:13:55
It's the real question is you know if you're gonna bring Enzo, I guess.
00:14:00
Guess who do you sit? And I mean, I guess you just I guess what you do is if you'd realize that Wayne is not making anything, maybe just just brings Owen.
00:14:09
But, you know, desseaux have that mentality can Is he able to, like, deal with that? Inconsistency is the is the real question.
00:14:18
And what I mean, inconsistent, mean is like, you know, Is he a type person that can easily warm up, You know, be sitting on the bench, register games, and Nelson loves it further, but that's not an easy thing to ask for.
00:14:30
So, you know, I see it.
00:14:33
I mean, I don't know what the god**** calm baffled, too.
00:14:37
Uh, but I don't know if there's really an easy right now with the point guard depth as it is, I will be.
00:14:44
Frank played 30 minutes, You know, in Orlando, I mean, I don't know what more we can honestly ask for.
00:14:51
I mean, 30 minutes is still a good amount of minutes.
00:14:53
I mean, well, I mean, yes.
00:14:55
I mean, yeah, 30 minutes is a good amount of minutes, right? And I do understand that, and You know, he played, He played the game.
00:15:03
But I think at least for me, what I want to see one.
00:15:08
I just don't understand.
00:15:10
Look, when he when he first did it, I understood it.
00:15:12
Now, okay, let's see.
00:15:14
Let's see what it looks like.
00:15:16
I wasn't It was okay, but I wasn't impressed.
00:15:19
I felt that it dwarfed the production of R. J.
00:15:23
Berry.
00:15:24
All right, so I'm like, I you know, I think we need to have somebody else as the distributor facilitator on that r J. Barrett.
00:15:31
Do what he does.
00:15:32
I think that's best to start the game.
00:15:34
And also, I think that, frankly, Latina can help set its own defensively to begin the game.
00:15:41
Those 1st 56 minutes of the game helps set the tone defensively especially, You know, you got a guard that is going to be electric like Kemba Walker, right? Wayne Ellington is not going to stop him, All right? Jim Barrett maybe could do a decent job on him, but we know Frank and I'm not based on anything on fever.
00:16:00
I could care less about feeble right now.
00:16:02
We just know that Frank, complete defense.
00:16:05
We just know you could play defense.
00:16:06
He could have a better effort than anybody else.
00:16:09
Right? So, I mean, we'll give you the best effort at the point guard position.
00:16:13
It's That's a fact.
00:16:15
Now, I guess the real question here is this right? You know his R J as a point guard, you know, is there any rational justification to give R J any point garments, you know, like does he should get more than you know that in 15 minutes is your point car.
00:16:33
I mean, clearly, it's not working, I guess in either capacity, right? I mean, are just just really be the two, right? Yeah, right.
00:16:40
I think in this situation that we're in right now with the lack of point guards, you know, somebody has to play that spot.
00:16:47
I guess you could go treat if you wanted to, but you know, Tria doesn't do that naturally either.
00:16:52
You know, I'm saying stuck, right, because you're kind of and there's no Obviously, Kadeem, Alan's not healthy, So you're almost like there's really just one coin card. Rg Barry.
00:17:03
Right.
00:17:04
Well, you're almost ill toe lose Lou Tika.
00:17:08
It's a no win it paradise And I don't know I don't know where you you know, you could start Frank and then, you know, see, see planets blacker than minutes, maybe.
00:17:18
Yeah, exactly.
00:17:19
That's what you do. I think you start, Frank.
00:17:21
So you got R J and Frank starting in the back court.
00:17:24
And then, you know, when you begin to make substitution is you don't take either, You know, you don't You never have a lineup in without one of those two on the floor.
00:17:34
You know, at at this point in time with the with what we have going on, you never have a lineup in without one of those two guys on the floor.
00:17:42
You know, that's the way I see it right now, you know, based on everything that's happening.
00:17:48
All right.
00:17:49
Now that is that they either frank or r j and or are there on the floor together.
00:17:54
Exactly what I get, what you're trying to say.
00:17:56
Which makes four senses have him start together all right, tone, and then takes taste.
00:18:02
They take Frank out earlier, or take cardio earlier.
00:18:05
And that play either one of those two of the second unit, you know, when either or sitting right exactly that you know, bring him back in.
00:18:12
I guess Together, Sometime within the last stage, it's half of 1/4 right? So? So, for example, you could go.
00:18:18
You can have Frank in all, Jr starting together in the backcourt.
00:18:24
Right? At six minutes, you take Frank out and let's just say you bring in Wayne Ellington or Twitter or dots.
00:18:31
Whatever it is you do right now, we just talk about the guard spots when I talk about the other stuff, right.
00:18:37
And and then our jays and, you know, for another three minutes or so You late.
00:18:44
You let Frank get a breather for about three minutes, and then you bring Frank in for R. J.
00:18:49
So there are Jake could get a breather, right? He let Frank play until, you know, maybe nine minutes until into the second quarter.
00:18:57
And then you bring R J for Frank.
00:19:00
R.
00:19:01
J plays, you know, three minutes and then, you know, when you get to 56 minutes, you bring Frank back in and you got both of them to finish off the half.
00:19:11
You see what I'm saying? Like, you could stagger home so that you always got one of those guys on the floor.
00:19:14
Yeah, I've got thinking if I'm crying, ****ogies are.
00:19:17
And I know I know teams do it all the time.
00:19:19
I'm trying to think of the best example I must think of, like, you know, like Philly does it all the time.
00:19:26
They should stagger all their guys guys like, you know, they take Alec and they take out Embiid really early.
00:19:32
Then you come back in for a part of, like, the end of the first quarter.
00:19:35
And then, you know, you get that he be taken out like the tenor, like, nine or eight minutes left the second quarter, and then maybe come back around three minutes.
00:19:43
Maybe you do something like that.
00:19:45
Ah, and then that really sort of souls your guard problem, right? Yeah.
00:19:48
Is there in together, they're going to start their into set the tone.
00:19:52
And then once it set the tone, they could let somebody else sustain the cone.
00:19:57
But I think that's a good solution.
00:19:59
Like you just mentioned.
00:20:00
The real question now is the forwards, right? So clearly the Morris and Randall's pairing.
00:20:05
You know, once you put them together, it's it's a mess, right? I they? They both huggable too much.
00:20:12
You know it.
00:20:13
The ball gets stuck with both them together and is just ugly, right? It's very stagnated offense.
00:20:19
So I mean, ideally, you just want to flip Morris out, put it in, put it in Doc's, I don't know, but anybody else, because I think Morris, you have to separate that duo.
00:20:33
Just have to.
00:20:35
You guys separate him.
00:20:37
You really got to separate those two because it's it's is getting bad that back and forth, back and forth.
00:20:44
Them, too.
00:20:45
You know them? Two guys taken taking shots and Morris, I'll say this.
00:20:51
Morris, I feel, holds the ball a little bit longer than Randall.
00:20:56
Um, you know, Randall and Morris, and Randall passes more than the Morris does.
00:21:03
Well, you know, Morris is barely passing the basketball.
00:21:06
He's looking for his shot.
00:21:08
And, you know, I was so excited for more is to be here.
00:21:14
So excited for more is to be here.
00:21:16
But now I'm kind of like Man, I don't like what he's doing.
00:21:19
I don't know if he's changing his game to try to prove that he could be a prime time player or if this is just two years.
00:21:27
You know what I'm saying? I don't know.
00:21:29
This is there's nothing prime time but his performances.
00:21:31
First time games, like I'm telling you that, you know, this is the 35% from the floor.
00:21:37
Uh, I mean, it's like, basically bad everywhere.
00:21:40
You know, there's nothing.
00:21:41
There's nothing really worth bragging about.
00:21:43
Morris is getting to be quite honest, but yeah, you're right.
00:21:46
Morris Morris hog the ball more than Randall us.
00:21:49
The problem is, when Randall holds the ball too much, he often gets like, tangled up in the paint.
00:21:54
And then, yeah, he just turns the ball over way too much for her big.
00:22:00
And that's his brother.
00:22:01
Yeah, and let me get to Nate.
00:22:03
See if Nate has a solution.
00:22:05
All of Nate's figured it out, you know, maybe need Maybe Nate understands David Fizdale right now.
00:22:13
God, do you give us something, man? So I think there's some things we need to clear up real quick regarding this point guard situation.
00:22:24
Okay, First off R.
00:22:25
J. Barrett is not a point guard.
00:22:27
I think that this deal is playing MBA to Kay and trying to use a special toy to try to do everything.
00:22:36
And r J Bear, It's not point guard.
00:22:38
He is a two at the most, and he could be a three in certain situations Blame at his position Mill Kina does need to start this game because of D S J.
00:22:50
And, um uh, well, for Peyton being hurt because he is the purest point guard and he is the point guard that could probably get everybody involved.
00:23:01
Now, the thing that surprises me is if business was talking about, like, Okay, we want to play the Latina on the bench because he's our only other point guard we have.
00:23:11
Why not bring up Kadeem Allen? You know what? I think it d miss Still, I think he's still hurting.
00:23:19
Well, we still hurt, okay, because that would just baffles me like you have him on a two way deal.
00:23:25
Right now, you're hurting at the point guard position.
00:23:27
I'm not saying could be in.
00:23:28
Alan's gonna be anything special, but he's a veteran.
00:23:31
He's older.
00:23:32
He could run the offense as a backup and letting in Latina start because the truth is right now, we don't know when b s she's coming back, and l her Peyton's growing injury.
00:23:43
That's a nagging things.
00:23:44
Oh, hamstring, hamstring injury and strengthen our hands Even worse, Samson, you know, But the thing is, and here's here's what I would do with the starting lineups Him.
00:23:56
I would take Morris and put him on the bench and start Knox because here's the thing.
00:24:03
Knox has been the most aggressive player outside of Barrett this season, like he has really taken it to the Cup.
00:24:10
He's shooting a good clip at from three.
00:24:14
I mean, this guy is confidence is really starting to gain and and on, Honestly, I'm tired of seeing this game being on the perimeter.
00:24:23
We've got to score inside.
00:24:25
We've gotta get buckets.
00:24:27
I mean, we don't get to the free throw line.
00:24:29
We don't really have any inside gain.
00:24:32
Everything's all perimeter.
00:24:33
So what you get to the line, we just don't know.
00:24:37
We just don't make on waking with shooting 67% or something like that from line.
00:24:43
We're not making them, you know.
00:24:44
But here's the thing, Sam.
00:24:45
If you compare him to other teams, where do we rank? As far as free throws attempted were probably body around the bottom.
00:24:53
Let's see if I could look up that step right now, I'm not exactly sure we'll see if I could look up that stat.
00:24:59
There's an interesting things that, you know that we got to pay attention to to this game.
00:25:04
A lot of it revolves around turnovers.
00:25:06
Man, we got we really got to protect the ball game.
00:25:09
The Celtics are number one in points off turnovers right now, you know, saying way, Turn over this basketball like we have been, you know, we're gonna give them a field day.
00:25:20
Did you watch how the Celtics shut down your honest and ****ed him off? So down.
00:25:25
Okay, be honest in the game in the fourth quarter.
00:25:30
I mean, he couldn't.
00:25:31
He kept getting offensive charges.
00:25:33
He was getting frustrated.
00:25:35
I mean, he he looked like a shell of himself.
00:25:38
You're the Celtic just threw everybody at Impossible.
00:25:42
Yeah, let me see if I could five free throws.
00:25:45
Um, I don't see free throw attempt.
00:25:48
I look it up.
00:25:49
I'll see if I could find it.
00:25:50
I want to get to you.
00:25:51
Just a little bit of a breakdown.
00:25:52
If you guys can get to it, I'm gonna come.
00:25:55
Too vivid.
00:25:56
Maybe he has it come to this real quick, and then we'll try to get to I'm gonna get to this breakdown of some stats, All right? This? Yeah, I'm not.
00:26:07
I'm on right now.
00:26:08
So we take What do you say we have 26.
00:26:10
4 free throw attempts a game which would be fourth in the league right now.
00:26:16
Okay, The problem is we only hit like you said 67% which is basically second last in the league.
00:26:23
So I mean, he you know, we're getting the line, you know? It's good. It is it.
00:26:29
What good is it if you can't make me not go make him Exactly what our problem is? R.
00:26:33
J is the biggest culprit.
00:26:34
He's 40% of the field.
00:26:36
He takes the most free throws suit.
00:26:40
45 46% insured.
00:26:42
40 41 21%.
00:26:46
Yeah.
00:26:47
Way gotta fix that.
00:26:50
Rando psychos line five times.
00:26:51
He's shot 60%.
00:26:55
And then, you know, like the out of the other guys, the only other guys traer tree a shooting lesson.
00:27:00
70%? No.
00:27:04
Yeah, yeah, man.
00:27:06
And he'll listen.
00:27:08
That's hurting us.
00:27:09
Especially the way we give up double digit elites.
00:27:12
You know, we've given up a double digit lead in just about every game we've played so far this season.
00:27:16
Be giving up a double digit lead.
00:27:18
We've been able to fight back, but we've given up those leads, man.
00:27:21
Right now, I mean the day, like you said, you know, the free throws? Um, we actually, you're not the worst, Even assists, which is kind of funny out of it all.
00:27:30
But we were near the bottom five and turnovers given up, which is, uh, we're just basically 19 again, which is terrible.
00:27:40
I don't know how you can win games, you know, do with that.
00:27:44
But obviously all connects to each other, right? You know, we have the same number of sets a member number of turnovers for shooting, less than 43% of the field and the most of it, actually, Honestly, shooting 35% from three.
00:27:58
We're taking a decent threes, but they're shooting 46 for 72 Yeah, s so you know, we gotta we gotta We gotta clean up a lot.
00:28:07
I don't read part of it.
00:28:08
That's a big culprit, you know.
00:28:10
Ah, Boris is a big culprit.
00:28:12
Uh, but it all there, everyone.
00:28:14
Everyone's numbers all add up to this.
00:28:17
Let me get to Guillermo.
00:28:21
You can use um Yep.
00:28:24
You made a good point, right? Or a point that if we're always trying to fight to come back, what did it make sense to start your team off with? Defense.
00:28:36
But I just I'm just so perplexed like eyes.
00:28:38
Not people here are saying some people here saying, Frank, um, he's not a point guard.
00:28:44
Fear enough, But we gonna have to work with what we got.
00:28:48
It is like the potato famine in Ireland.
00:28:52
It's like, All right, they had a famine because it had potatoes.
00:28:54
But I like you guys got fish.
00:28:56
You guys got other things you could make.
00:28:58
You don't have to starve, right? Why do we have to suffer? Because we don't have the prototypical point guard that fizzle once.
00:29:07
And I'm sorry, fizz those offense.
00:29:09
And it's not just me, right? I sort of saw.
00:29:12
And I forgot What it what? Uh, instagram account? It was, But they said they got us.
00:29:18
We got to stop with this isil ball.
00:29:20
I sold ball does not work.
00:29:21
It only works for one team, the Rockets, as because of James Harden and his uses rate is astronomical.
00:29:28
That's like if we had you have one player on the team, you given probably 50% of 50 the ball 50% of time.
00:29:34
And you basically have supporting cast around him to Basie, uh, hide his weaknesses and make him ah, more effective, right.
00:29:43
We don't have that fizzle.
00:29:45
Forget even the offense.
00:29:46
Whatever you want to run that stupid handoff.
00:29:49
Ah, elementary school friends go ahead.
00:29:52
If we're always having a fight to come back into the game, why not start with the first half close and then take Frank out for that there or whatever and then bring him back for the fourth to make sure your defense is still intact? You could shut down their best players.
00:30:06
Other teams.
00:30:07
I've seen other teams do it.
00:30:09
That didn't have Premier Point guards of premier players, where they've basically worked off of defense to try to stay in the games wise.
00:30:16
And this that the AMC Matt we have.
00:30:18
We played against the magic right that Magic had the lowest field goal percentage, right? People say all we play good defense Bob, All right, I'm thinking about this.
00:30:27
We actually play good defense.
00:30:30
If we lost the team that the lowest field goal percentage of the game does that, you know my understanding that they only scored 93 points, whatever, but if they had the lowest field goal percentage, right? And I'm just I'm just thinking about these things.
00:30:42
This is like, I'm trying to find a reason as to why Frank isn't playing.
00:30:46
And if you want easy buckets, the best way to get them is to what it steals, steals and stops.
00:30:53
Get Steve.
00:30:54
Frank gets the ball or whoever gets it because Archie was a good is showing that he's a good defender, especially have to play that pick and roll defense.
00:31:01
And mind you, Sim.
00:31:03
The Celtics don't have a really good front court anymore.
00:31:06
They don't have Horford anymore, and I don't have a big body and Baines anymore.
00:31:10
So what are they going to be doing? They're gonna like they did when we went to the game on Saturday.
00:31:14
They were living by the by the perimeter.
00:31:16
That's great for Frank.
00:31:17
Frank doesn't have to get this.
00:31:18
I have to run into a tower where he has to try to fight. To get around that.
00:31:22
And maybe Randall's two Lazy doesn't want to commit himself.
00:31:25
You could literally just play on the perimeter and defend that way. Simba.
00:31:30
There's no reason it's the wife. Frank isn't start.
00:31:33
If you could try to destroy whatever the Celtics game plan is, which I don't think they have as good as a game plan anymore.
00:31:39
That maybe, say, last year had offered and even Kyrie, Irving and even the year before that if they're living.
00:31:46
Basically, Kemble was a a shoot first point guard who has to get Ho doesn't have a great efficiency numbers, disrupt his game, and you throw probably 40% of the game out of whack.
00:31:57
Why is this so hard? It only goes back to politics, and this is what gets me ****, man.
00:32:02
You have this around on your team.
00:32:04
You don't want to use it, man.
00:32:05
Well, let me say this, and this is very telling.
00:32:07
This is kind of non.
00:32:08
Nick's right so badly, you know, you know, just for a second.
00:32:11
This is non nix in looking at the Celtics, and they're all faints.
00:32:18
And the Brooklyn Nets and they're all fence Can the actress in AC Atkinson? You know, he said, Right now they have no structure on offense.
00:32:30
They're not playing with any kind of structure.
00:32:33
And, you know, do you know why that is? You guys know what it is.
00:32:36
There's a reason why that is it's gonna re nets.
00:32:39
I mean, I'm sorry.
00:32:40
Something's play with a little bit more structured and probably the Nets.
00:32:45
Kyrie.
00:32:46
There's one exactly.
00:32:48
There is one of the red between the two since Simpson.
00:32:51
I just I just want to bring others.
00:32:53
I just say one thing about this.
00:32:54
What did I say when we were talking about the career? I said that where Atkinson had with that team with De Lo with didn't Woody will avert.
00:33:06
There was an offensive system around it, and those guys love playing around each other.
00:33:11
Now, did they need more parts to get to the next round? Yes, but you had a foundation that things were working.
00:33:16
I said this Kyrie Irving is in his Kobe mode.
00:33:20
Remember when Kobe when shack left, Kobe went into this mall where it was all about me? Nothing else.
00:33:26
I got to score 30 40 points and I'm gonna win either through me or we're not gonna do nothing at all, right? That's the same thing.
00:33:32
So they got they got Kyrie.
00:33:34
You score 50 points in a loss.
00:33:37
Perfect. Nice having mood swings.
00:33:39
Knicks fans think I agree with three and and fizzle right now is that we didn't go after that guy and Katie, who needs to be on.
00:33:48
He needs to talk like he's on a ah freakin talk show every day, man.
00:33:52
Thank God we didn't get those supers.
00:33:54
Kyrie Irving, Head case Katie Headcase.
00:33:57
I just want to throw that out there, take a little jab at the Brooklyn Nets.
00:34:03
I'm glad and go through some of these numbers that we'll get back to talking.
00:34:06
Ladies and gentlemen, do me a favor if you need to.

You guys can see I'm not in the studio right now out on travel once again.
00:34:33
So I'm in the hotel, but we're doing this anyway.
00:34:35
I got about 24 25 minutes left because at 11.
00:34:40
30 11.
00:34:41
35 I gotta prepare for my got training to do tomorrow.
00:34:45
I got a little bit more to do to prepare for it, so I got to get off a little bit earlier than usual.
00:34:51
All right, so But we're gonna go ahead and talk this stuff anyway.
00:34:55
I want to get to It's the breakdown.
00:34:58
And really look at you.
00:35:00
Don't take a look at some of the numbers behind this game coming up tomorrow night the next.
00:35:07
Clearly, I'm gonna be looking for revenge.
00:35:09
Hopefully, they're motivated now.
00:35:12
They don't have the same number of bodies that they had against the Celtics on opening night, but it shouldn't matter much.
00:35:24
I mean, it's gonna matter, but I think we have enough.
00:35:27
If we can play good basketball, can we play? But good basketball against the Celtics will see.
00:35:38
Listen, I'm gonna be It's a tough situation with the Knicks.
00:35:45
You could look at it in two different ways.
00:35:48
You could look at it and say, You know what? We've had 1/4 quarter lead.
00:35:53
We've played five games were one in four.
00:35:56
You could look and say We've had 1/4 quarter lead and for those games, we couldn't finish the deal.
00:36:05
You can look at it and say, That's a good thing.
00:36:07
That's a positive because we're doing it without a competent point guard.
00:36:12
We're doing it without a point guard that can actually organized, I guess.
00:36:21
I guess Franken organized a team, but do more just organized can organize and create.
00:36:28
And I'm not.
00:36:29
I'm not saying anything negative about Frank.
00:36:30
I'm just saying, you know, you know what? We need to actually get these guys going.
00:36:37
We're doing it without that right now.
00:36:40
Well, we're not doing it without it.
00:36:41
We've been in the game in every game without that right now.
00:36:45
You know what I'm saying? If one of these guys can emerge and I think in order for one of these guys to emerge way need some consistency, this deal is gonna have to choose someone to say I'm rocking with you and let it be consistent.
00:37:03
And maybe l for paying is the guy that he's doing that with l for pinkeye.
00:37:06
I don't know.
00:37:09
You know, it is hard for me to say.
00:37:12
But, you know, we've been competitive.
00:37:18
We can't close.
00:37:19
We don't have a closer.
00:37:21
That's been the difference between us.
00:37:23
And that was the difference between us and Brooklyn.
00:37:25
We didn't have a closer same thing with San Antonio, right? We'd have a closer with having someone finish the deal.
00:37:36
So we gonna get out that way, Or we could look at it and say, It's gonna be like this the entire season.
00:37:43
We're not gonna be able to close games.
00:37:48
I don't know, man.
00:37:49
I don't know.
00:37:50
Anyway, let's take a look at this, right? The projected starting lineups for tomorrow.
00:37:56
Once again, the Knicks are gonna go with R.
00:37:58
J.
00:37:59
Berry, Wayne Ellington, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, Right.
00:38:04
That's the projected starting lineup injuries for the next.
00:38:09
And it's mere junior.
00:38:10
There's a death in the family is with this family.
00:38:12
All right, Uh, condolences to him in and our prayers thoughts.
00:38:16
I'm going out to him and his family.
00:38:18
Overpaying has ah, sore right.
00:38:22
Hamstring Hamstrings could be tricky.
00:38:26
You don't know what he might be Back.
00:38:29
He's out.
00:38:30
Reggie Bullock.
00:38:31
You know, we already knew he was gonna be out next problem, plus a death in the family.
00:38:34
And, you know, I really do feel for Reggie Bullet, though.
00:38:38
You guys look at the back story.
00:38:40
He lost a sister about five years ago in Baltimore.
00:38:45
Now he lost another sister to gun violence in Baltimore.
00:38:49
I think there were, like, nine people shot, um, and he and his sister was one of them.
00:38:56
So you know, it is tragic, man.
00:38:59
Not that anyone's death isn't tragic, but it's definitely tragic, and I feel form.
00:39:04
I know he's hurting.
00:39:05
Uh, you know, you know, much love to him and his family.
00:39:09
Dennis Smith Jr.
00:39:10
As well, ladies and gentlemen, you know you must love to all of those guys, and you know, I'm keeping them in my prayers and hopefully you're doing the same.
00:39:21
I'm pretty sure you're doing the same, but anyway, Reggie Bullock really is not playing and will be out for you.
00:39:31
No foreseeable future.
00:39:34
That's what these starters look like.
00:39:36
That's what's projected for the Knicks tomorrow.
00:39:38
For the Boston Celtics, you got Kemba Walker at point guard Jalen Brown, that shooting guard Jason say them at small forward Gordon Hayward, that power forward, and Robert Williams at center.
00:39:50
Now Jalen Brown did not play against the Milwaukee Books just a couple of yesterday.
00:39:59
Last night, he did not play against the Milwaukee Bucks. Do this sickness.
00:40:04
I'm expecting him.
00:40:05
We should expect him to play against the Knicks tomorrow night and hopefully I said Jalen Brown and not Jason Tatum.
00:40:15
I met Jalen Brown.
00:40:16
If I did say Jason Tatum, I meant Jalen Brown.
00:40:18
Jalen Brown was out with sickness, and we'll see if he's going to play against the Knicks.
00:40:25
If he does not play against the Knicks than Marcus, Smart will likely playing that shooting guard position.
00:40:34
That's what happened last night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
00:40:38
Marcus Smart started that shooting guard, and there was actually someone else.
00:40:42
He started at center.
00:40:44
But these other projected starters for tomorrow night against, you know, the next and the Celtics, you know.
00:40:54
And you know, I look at this man.
00:40:56
Wayne Ellington is not athletic enough to play defense with, you know, stick with Jalen Brown, that that's who's who's gonna guard.
00:41:04
He's not athletic enough to play defense against Kemba Walker, that that's who he would guard R J Mary could probably play defense on either.
00:41:13
I would rather see R J buried on Jalen Brown.
00:41:16
They can walk all right, so, you know, I don't know.
00:41:21
I don't get it.
00:41:22
I don't understand it.
00:41:25
I really don't.
00:41:27
You know.
00:41:28
And again, this market's Morris Julius Randle man, they got to split it up.
00:41:32
We really don't.
00:41:33
We got to split it up.
00:41:36
Let's go on, man.
00:41:37
Let's take a look.
00:41:38
Get, uh, Let's take a look at some numbers.
00:41:44
A team comparison. Right now.
00:41:46
The Knicks are one and four, actually, not one and three.
00:41:49
The Boston Celtics are three and one of the next average 101 100.
00:41:55
6 points per game.
00:41:57
Their opponents averaged 108.
00:41:58
8 points per game, the next shooting, 42.
00:42:01
3% from the field, 35.
00:42:04
2% from three.
00:42:06
The average 18.
00:42:07
8 assists per game and 18.
00:42:10
4 turnovers begin.
00:42:11
Obviously, this is a small sample size.
00:42:16
It's a small sample size, you know.
00:42:18
Just five games into the season, the Knicks defensive rating is 107.7.
00:42:27
That's good for 17th in the league.
00:42:31
And of course you know the Knicks assist total that Nick's have the second to worst, the second to last assist to turnover ratio in the league.
00:42:41
That's terrible, That is, that's definitely terrible.
00:42:45
Obviously, we don't have, you know, a competent point guard on the offensive side of the ball.
00:42:52
All right, so maybe that's something that you would expect.
00:42:55
You know, as far as the turnover scenario, though you're looking at you.
00:42:58
See Marcus Morris, you know, you see what he does with the ball.
00:43:02
You see Julius Randle what he does with the ball impounding into, um, no pounding in the defense's pounding into three and four guys trying to make a play, turning the ball off his foot.
00:43:14
You know, doing some other.
00:43:15
You know, there were some things that you would not recommend.
00:43:19
Now I will say last night versus the Orlando Magic Julius Randle.
00:43:27
He recognized the double and triple teams a little bit better.
00:43:32
He had seven assists.
00:43:33
He had three turnovers.
00:43:35
Listen, that's a feat for Julius Randle because he's been getting 5678 turnovers, right? He had three turnovers.
00:43:44
He got the ball out a little bit better.
00:43:48
I still think he takes one too many dribbles when he gets in that paint and which allows the defense to collapse a little bit harder and he struggles to get that ball out.
00:43:58
If he takes one less trouble.
00:43:59
I think recognizes where the defense is coming from a little bit quicker and is able to get that quick pass out.
00:44:06
You're gonna have the defense scrambling.
00:44:11
You'll have him scrambling.
00:44:15
Hopefully, he'll be able to learn that.
00:44:17
All right. The Boston Celtics.
00:44:19
They average 109.
00:44:20
8 points per game.
00:44:22
Opponents against the Celtics average 103.
00:44:24
3, something shoot 41.
00:44:26
1% from the field issue, 35.
00:44:29
6% from three.
00:44:32
The average 22 assists, the average 11 turnovers per game.
00:44:37
The defense of waiting for the Celtics is on 2.7.
00:44:40
Thats good for ninth in the league again.
00:44:42
Day.
00:44:43
That's another good defense that the Knicks are facing.
00:44:45
It just faced the number two ranked defense in the league, at least at that time with the Orlando Magic.
00:44:51
Now they're facing The Boston Celtics are also a good defense.
00:44:59
All right, let's take a look at some keys to the game keys to the game for the Knicks.
00:45:04
Mr.
00:45:05
Celtics, Knicks want to try to come out of this with a victory? No, there's obviously some keys that the Knicks it's got to take care of.
00:45:12
Number one. Take care of the basketball.
00:45:15
That's a big key.
00:45:17
Let me tell you why.
00:45:18
That's a big key to this game.
00:45:19
Maybe, and I mentioned it a little bit earlier.
00:45:23
You know, if you want here, you just getting here.

Live Job video opposed to my community section Thank you for joining me if you are on SportsCastr.
00:45:41
Follow me on SportsCastr.
00:45:43
We see it, you guys for being here on a Thursday night, right? But we gotta take care of the basketball.
00:45:52
That is the first key to the game because we are averaging 18.
00:45:57
8 18 point to 18 point to be whatever it was.
00:46:01
Turnovers per game, right? That's not 18.
00:46:05
4 turnovers per game, right? That's not what that's.
00:46:08
That's not how you get it done.
00:46:10
Ladies and gentlemen, 80.
00:46:11
4 turnovers per game, Um, on only 18.
00:46:15
8 assists per game, then what makes it worse is that the Boston Celtics, the Celtics, are the best team in the league right now, even though it's a small sample size at points off turnovers.
00:46:32
You're the best team in the league at points, off turnovers, right? So we've got to take care of the basketball.
00:46:37
Because if we don't take care of the basketball and we're gonna have this Celtics player, we're gonna have the Celtics running up and down the floor. Scorn.
00:46:44
Right now, they're team that shoots 41.
00:46:46
4% 41.
00:46:47
1% from the field when we turn over the ball like we did first.
00:46:54
Then in the home opener, right in the home opener, we gave up 26 turnovers, 26 turnovers.
00:47:04
We had 17 assists.
00:47:06
If we do that again is gonna be a very similar result.
00:47:10
The Boston Celtics built up a 29 point lead in that game.
00:47:14
A lot of it had to do with us turning over the basketball.
00:47:17
We've gotta take care of the basketball, take care of the basketball is not let them get running, you know, through the first half of the game, in the first game.
00:47:27
We were We played them very well.
00:47:29
We had a lead.
00:47:32
We got sloppy.
00:47:34
You got sloppy.
00:47:36
We're gonna talk more about why we lost that first game.
00:47:39
As we continue to look at these keys to the game, the next key to the game, we've got to make it tough on Kemba Walker.
00:47:48
We're not gonna stop Kim a Walker.
00:47:50
You know that.
00:47:51
I know that, right? We're not gonna shut him down.
00:47:55
Right? But we could make it tough on him.
00:47:57
How do we make it tough on him? I'm gonna tell you how you make it tough on you sick Frank.
00:48:02
Mel Akina. Oh, no.
00:48:04
That's what I don't understand why he's not starting, frankly, Lucchino.
00:48:09
But if you're gonna make it tough on Kemba Walker, six Frank Nell Akina own, you know, how will she make it? Tough play allows will treat it.
00:48:20
That's another way to make it tough on Kimmel.
00:48:21
Walker.
00:48:22
Why am I saying that? Let's say you play lines Old tree here in the backcourt while Campbell woke us in the game and you play all J bury all frankness Latina in the backcourt while Campbell walkers in the game.
00:48:33
What do you think Kemba Walker is gonna guard? He's most likely going to guard online's old trip.
00:48:38
And then you know what you tell him I was trying to do.
00:48:40
You tell him I was trying to go at Kemba Walker.
00:48:45
Tell him to go, Adam.
00:48:48
Running off screens two months rear off the screens.
00:48:51
However, Kima Walker's garden running off screens make Kemba Walker fight through screens.
00:48:57
Make him battle on the defense event.
00:49:00
How does that make it tough on Campbell? Well, if you got treated going with Adam, he's gonna play defense.
00:49:07
But we're tired.
00:49:09
You got a running off screens.
00:49:12
You tired him out, and then you got Frank.
00:49:15
Oh, you know, you got people playing defense on him, strapping up defensively, and yeah, you're not going to stop him. But you be pesty.
00:49:24
You got guys me and passes your garden gnome.
00:49:27
94 feet.
00:49:30
You denying him the ball.
00:49:32
You not just let them catch the ball on the end bells.
00:49:36
You deny him make him work, for they could work for everything.
00:49:40
You make it tough on and make that to be a tough night.
00:49:42
Make sure he goes home sore.
00:49:45
Make sure he goes back into the locker room after the game and soaks in a nice cold tub of ice because he's sore.
00:49:54
His body hurts because you ran up through screens.
00:49:58
You put him to work.
00:50:00
That's what you do against Kemba Walker.
00:50:01
That's how you make it tough on him.
00:50:02
In my opinion, I could be wrong, but I think that's how you make it tough for him.
00:50:09
Make it tough, Otto.
00:50:10
And then hopefully, you get him to shoot a low percentage from the field.
00:50:14
Hopefully, in the fourth quarter.
00:50:16
He doesn't get hot, right, because you made it cell phone.
00:50:20
He's tired and I know he's in supreme shape.
00:50:23
All these guys, not all these guys.
00:50:25
But a lot of these guys were in supreme shape.
00:50:27
So when you say make, I'm tired, I Maybe you're not really gonna make him tired.
00:50:30
Their supreme shape.
00:50:32
That's what these guys are getting paid to do.
00:50:33
That's what they do.
00:50:36
Let me get tough on right.
00:50:39
Make that man work sick.
00:50:41
Frank Onem is sick.
00:50:43
Come on, Next play Randall and Morris and separate line ups.
00:50:51
I think this is a key.
00:50:53
The problem is I know it's not going to happen is gonna happen a little bit, but from the beginning, it's not going to happen.
00:51:00
Morris and Randall obviously earned the starting lineup.
00:51:03
We went over to starting lineups right there, obviously in the starting lineups.
00:51:09
It's a terrible pairing.
00:51:10
So far, it's not working.
00:51:12
It is not working.
00:51:13
Morris is not shooting well, playing well at the beginning, the season, not the way we see them do in preseason, right? He was super hot preseason, right? It was It was really hitting here with super hot in preseason.
00:51:26
Obviously, he's not doing that now right now.
00:51:30
But they're so similar.
00:51:33
It reminds me of when the Knicks got a Mari started Meyer and they had.
00:51:38
I'm sorry.
00:51:39
Yeah, when the Knicks got my start admire.
00:51:41
And then they brought in Carmelo Anthony.
00:51:44
And the big question was these.
00:51:46
You know, the big question was, how can they co exist? Because they occupy the same spots on the floor.
00:51:52
Now they do things a little bit differently.
00:51:56
Your Marcus Morris, you know, is isolates.
00:52:01
Maur doesn't really catch the ball on the run more.
00:52:03
He is applauding.
00:52:05
A plotting type of player is Marcus Morris.
00:52:11
He's a plodding type of guy.
00:52:14
Yeah, he's gonna catch the boy's gonna take this time.
00:52:16
He's got a measure up, this defender, much like mellow, much like the way Mellow used to do is a much better defended in Carmelo Anthony.
00:52:24
Obviously, you know, he's got a much more fiery attitude in Melo.
00:52:28
Um, you know, trying to rev up in and get a team moving and get the team going in those type of things.
00:52:36
But I don't see these guys.
00:52:38
They just do not co exist.
00:52:41
Well, in this lineup, Kevin knocks clearly to me.
00:52:45
Well will exist next to Randall.
00:52:47
Much better.
00:52:49
It shoots, You know it heavy. Knox.
00:52:54
It's not gonna go one on one the way that Morris does.
00:52:58
When Kevin Knox does decide so far this season, when he decides to go one on one, you know he's making his move quickly to the basket, right? He's not catching the ball and taking a whole bunch of setup dribbles.
00:53:11
He's catching the ball and going right.
00:53:13
Kevin Knots is good at coming off screens, you know is good at shooting off screens.
00:53:21
It works right now next to Julius Randle life and because Kevin Knox is shooting the ball better than Marcus Morris.
00:53:33
He's spreading the floor better so that Julius Randle has some more space while he's going to the basket while he's in late.
00:53:43
So I think you gotta play it.
00:53:44
Randall Morris.
00:53:45
A separate line ups The question is, and I said in the letter and the stream last night, actually, does David Fizdale have the Kohona is to sit down Marcus Morris? I don't know, man.
00:53:57
I really don't. I'm not sure.
00:53:59
Does he have the cojones to sit him down? I certainly hope so.
00:54:06
I certainly hope so, because you're gonna have to do it bar movement and let me take that back because I hit it twice.
00:54:15
You seeing what my next one is.
00:54:17
But ball movement, you know, I'm gonna say it again.
00:54:21
The beginning of the 1st 2/4 of the Gabor's Orlando, I thought, I see better ball movement.
00:54:26
We moved the ball better.
00:54:27
We want efficient, but we move the basketball better, even though I don't like having Wayne Ellington in the starting line with R.
00:54:34
J.
00:54:35
Berry and I much rather have Frank Miller Keenan up there in that R.
00:54:38
J Barrett do its thing.
00:54:39
I did see better ball.
00:54:41
I thought it was better ball more.
00:54:44
Okay.
00:54:46
Um I think, uh, something came out today.
00:54:49
Where the next have a goal of 300 passes in a game against Orlando.
00:54:54
They had 326 passes.
00:54:57
All right, so So the eclipse, their goal.
00:55:01
And, you know, 326 passes the eclipse to go.
00:55:08
We need ball movement, right? What? I what? I'm tired of seeing the only guillermo touched on it a little bit earlier.
00:55:15
I'm tired of seeing the aside the side east to west handoffs without going north or south and get into the basket.
00:55:23
You can't go East and west all the time when I get enough going East and West.
00:55:30
Now, we did a little bit better.
00:55:32
I'm gonna tell you something that I really thought we did better against the Orlando Magic.
00:55:37
I thought we caught Julius Randle.
00:55:40
Uh, we did a better job of finding Julius Randle on the move so that he could catch the ball One dribble, two dribbles and get to the basket, You know, without just posting them up.
00:55:50
Obviously we still did.
00:55:51
Supposed to moves with him family, distant post up in, and he did a better job kicking it out.
00:55:58
There's still some work to be done there, right? Still, a lot of work to be done.
00:56:04
But I really I do like that.
00:56:10
You know, they were able to find Randall on the move.
00:56:11
I think that's one of the keys to keeping those allowing him to score and keeping those turnovers down.
00:56:17
Or we need more ball movement.
00:56:19
We gotta get going towards the basket.
00:56:23
The ball moved faster as well, but we can't just keep passing east and west.
00:56:28
We got to get going to the basket.
00:56:30
I like to see some more pick and roll, which with ah, Miss Robinson, he was saying, Spread the floor out.
00:56:38
Let's get Mr Robinson out there with some guys that could spread the floor.
00:56:41
So if you got R.
00:56:42
J.
00:56:43
Barry and Mitchell Robinson, as have Kevin knocks Wayne Ellington and maybe Damien Dotson or, frankly, Latina doesn't really spread the floor.
00:56:50
But maybe even Frank Nell Akina, you know, since he does at least have decent for shooting the ball.
00:56:57
All right, old times gives you know by reporters Bobby Portis, Kevin Knox.
00:57:02
Wait. Ellington, Mitchell, Robinson.
00:57:06
All right, spread the floor.
00:57:07
So maybe we can get Mitchell Robinson on a couple of hoops.
00:57:10
A couple of runs to the basket.
00:57:12
I'll say that again.
00:57:13
R.
00:57:14
J. Barrett, Wayne Ellington.
00:57:16
Kevin knocks Bobby Porter's Mitchell Robinson.
00:57:20
Now you really do.
00:57:21
You got guys on the floor that could shoot.
00:57:22
Now you really open it up so that Mitchell Robinson could get some hoops to the basket.
00:57:26
Let's find a way to get him involved in the offense more because I'm gonna tell you what a lot of people a lot of players are leaving Mitchell Robinson, man.
00:57:36
And that's where some of the double teams come from.
00:57:38
They leave Mitchell Robinson because he's not too much of a threat on the offensive side of the floor.
00:57:43
He did hit it.
00:57:44
Ah, little, many jump shot in the last game, but it's not too much of a threat.
00:57:49
Besides, you know, maybe he catches a lob here. There.
00:57:53
Hey, get some offensive rebounds and puts them back and you know, loose balls and you know some of those type of things.
00:57:59
But if you try and find a way to incorporate him into the offense, you could make it more of a threat.
00:58:09
All right, I'd like to see that lineup.
00:58:11
I'm saying one more time.
00:58:12
R.
00:58:13
J.
00:58:14
Barrett Wayne Ellington said that.
00:58:15
So you use it right now, uh, having Knox, Bobby Portis.
00:58:20
Mitchell Robinson got shooters that will allow Mr Robinson to run to the basket and also allow R.
00:58:29
J. Barrett to penetrate to the basket.
00:58:31
And then, if you want to substitute Wayne Ellington, a lot of trouble for Wayne Ellington and also open up lanes for Wayne for lots of clear to get to the basket.
00:58:41
Think about it.
00:58:42
That's all it is.
00:58:43
If you listen.
00:58:44
If you look and think about it next, no hero ball.
00:58:49
If we're fortunate enough and we play well enough to get his game down to, you know, the fourth quarter, well, well, we're in the game.
00:58:56
Still, we got to stay away from the hero ball.
00:59:01
The fourth corner of that Orlando Gay.
00:59:03
We went seven minutes without Hera pro before.
00:59:16
We don't need it.
00:59:19
Everybody put reporters got screamed at by fizz for playing hero ball.
00:59:24
You know, I'm saying Come on, guys, to play their game, we need heroes We just need to play basketball, use each other.
00:59:32
We have enough players on this team who could be scoring threats that if we use each other without trying to be a hero, you could be effective.
00:59:44
We could be effective down the stretch.
00:59:46
We don't need the hero ball.
00:59:47
Ladies and gentlemen, we don't need a big shout out to sensational vase.
00:59:51
Thank you for the Super Chat, my friend.
00:59:52
I appreciate you cut out the hero ball, folks and then rebound the basketball.
00:59:57
The Boston Celtics shoot 41.
00:59:58
1% from the field.
01:00:01
We got a rebound, the ball, the Knicks.
01:00:04
Right now, I believe they're in the top three and points in second chance points, right? If we're gonna be, Ah, low percentage shooting team that we better be able to get offensive rebounds so that we can score on those second chance points, right? But if we're gonna play when we play teams like the Boston Celtics, who shoot 41.
01:00:25
1% from the field right now, we better rebound the basketball.
01:00:31
We cannot allow them to get second chance points and score off a second chance points.
01:00:38
We do that. We're gonna lose the game.
01:00:41
All right, so we've got a rebound, that basketball.
01:00:45
We've been doing a good job so far this season, rebounding the ball.
01:00:48
We've got to continue to rebound the basketball.
01:00:53
It's getting us rebound, the basketball, Let's get out and try to run, See if we can get some early baskets, see what we could do in transition.
01:00:59
We haven't done much in transition.
01:01:01
We haven't really gotten early baskets.
01:01:02
As a matter of fact, we've been playing a slow basketball game, right.
01:01:08
We've been playing a slow basketball game, and you would think that we have.
01:01:12
You know, we got guys that could rebound the ball.
01:01:16
Right now, we don't have we don't have ever paying.
01:01:19
And then the Smith Jr on the floor, obviously, because of, you know, personal situations with venison, junior hamstring injury with elephant painting, you know, so pushing the ball, getting the ball up the floor, trying to get easy baskets may not be in the cards right now, because right now, lucky no, you know what you know.
01:01:42
He doesn't push the ball like that.
01:01:44
R.
01:01:45
J Barry, it's, you know, he's not really the guy that's gonna push the ball like that.
01:01:52
You know what I'm saying? So and then, you know, we tried it with Julius Randle.
01:01:57
Julius Randle kind of slows it.
01:01:59
Oppa's well, you know.
01:02:00
So there's not a lot of pushing from Julius Randle.
01:02:03
Look, you don't gotta dribble the ball up to push the ball up.
01:02:08
You can't pass it up.
01:02:10
It is possible.
01:02:11
It's a matter of fact.
01:02:12
It is the best way to do it.
01:02:15
Passed the ball.
01:02:16
Oh, get the rebound.
01:02:18
Let's outlet it.
01:02:19
Let's get the ball up.
01:02:20
Let's try to beat the defense of the floor, see if we can get some easy buckets.
01:02:23
We scored 83 points against the Orlando Magic.
01:02:26
We've gotta find ways to muster up points because we're not going to win by scoring 83 points.
01:02:32
It's not gonna happen right now.
01:02:34
We average 100 points per game.
01:02:37
You're not gonna win in this league today, averaging 100 points per game unless you've got the most stifling defense in the league.
01:02:46
You went on, went by averaging 100 points of the game.
01:02:48
You could only give up 95 points per game, right? We gave up 109 points per game.
01:02:52
This will be average right now.
01:02:58
So we gotta find ways to get this office going.
01:02:59
Which is the reason why I'm not understanding why Alonso Trailer is not in the game, folks.
01:03:07
Ice True, not playing.
01:03:10
I don't know.
01:03:11
I'll keep asking this question until I see this kid on the floor does.
01:03:15
He could get buckets, he can score.
01:03:18
And when you score 83 points in a game, you need someone who can score the ball for you and inefficient clip and everything that you want to say about him.
01:03:32
Maybe troubling too much, not being able to shoot off the, you know, Can't you shoot whatever.
01:03:37
Okay, I get it.
01:03:38
Things that he has to work on, I understand it.
01:03:40
I believe it, too.
01:03:41
It's gotta work on those things, the more he could catch a shoot. Come on, screens.
01:03:45
You know, supper things the more effective player is gonna be.
01:03:49
But at the moment, he's one of the best score was we had, especially with no Dennis Smith Jr on out about there.
01:03:57
What was it really scoring anyway? No Dennis Smith Jr.
01:03:59
No Albert paying to get to the Cup, but Allie's old.
01:04:03
You can get to the cup from that guard spot.
01:04:06
You can get there.
01:04:07
He could get eaten, get the bump.
01:04:11
He can absorb the bump and still score and go to the line.
01:04:18
But that man in the game fears.
01:04:20
Come on, man, think come office and stop trying to be fancy with the coaching and over coaching, it's Costa who coached their talent that you have will be successful, brother posted the talent that you have.

01:05:51
I want to know what you guys think.
01:05:53
You know how we're gonna beat Boston, folks.
01:05:55
What are we gonna do? How are we going to get this win? Can we get this way? And we do it? I see.
01:06:03
Case way here.
01:06:04
Case way. I'm coming towards you, my man.
01:06:06
Want to talk to your case? Wait.
01:06:07
Tell me, How can we beat Boston.
01:06:13
All right.
01:06:14
Case Wait I'm gonna do right now is what's up with your brother.
01:06:20
What? So somebody doing then? I'm chilling, man.
01:06:22
How are you? I'm chilling. Chilling, ma'am.
01:06:25
A little, a little, uh, down.
01:06:27
And I was actually at that magic game, uh, yesterday, you know.
01:06:31
So I watched the whole thing.
01:06:33
I watched the l that we just talked.
01:06:35
But, you know, um, to get on the Boston? No.
01:06:39
Is this we got to play defense, man, because, you know, we seem to have a lot of, ah, problems scoring, you know? I mean, we have a lot of Ah, it seems like nobody understands has an established role.
01:06:50
So when you when you don't have establishment, you've got a lot of confusion on off sense of offensive side, but and we have to have better rotations.
01:06:56
Why? Why's Landel chair? Maybe you can probably.
01:07:00
But it might get back up to back up one spot if you're gonna pull in a dame.
01:07:04
Got you know, if you you know me, another thing is said that get mention Robinson more involved men.
01:07:11
You know, this is many times that I see him open and no one was looking at him or when they give him a pass, you know, he's a seven footer.
01:07:17
You know, you've given him a balance back to see the play.
01:07:19
They gave him a bounce pass, You know me.
01:07:21
And of course, they say, you know, that was a turnover.
01:07:24
You know, you got to give a player like that ball you know me in his chest area or buck his shoulders.
01:07:29
This this just how that's gonna work, man, I don't know.
01:07:32
I don't understand that.
01:07:33
But, I mean, the answer to your question is we have to play defense.
01:07:38
If we don't play defense, that's it is done.
01:07:41
Yeah. Yeah, I'm with you, bro.
01:07:43
I figure they're definitely we gotta play that defense.
01:07:46
Uh, and I did see someone saying the chat by taking calls.
01:07:49
Yes.
01:07:50
You could call 85164 or 5 to 246 I will take a couple of calls.
01:07:55
All right, I'll take a couple of calls.
01:07:56
516452246 Tell me how we beat the Boston Celtics tomorrow night.
01:08:02
All right.
01:08:03
Um, okay.
01:08:07
I don't know, case Wait, man is not gonna be easy, man.
01:08:09
It's not gonna be easy.
01:08:11
And I think we probably expected the next to maybe go one of five to begin the season.
01:08:18
I was hoping that we could be at least two and three, but, you know, are, you know, two and four or, you know, somewhere around there, um, three and young 33? I don't know, but I think we probably expect.
01:08:34
Listen, we beat the team that was supposed to be in Chicago.
01:08:38
Every other team that we've played is a potential playoff team you're in.
01:08:42
You can at least look at that.
01:08:44
A potential playoff team, Uh, on alone.
01:08:48
Did we expect that the Knicks were gonna beat these teams, Especially this early in the season? You know, I don't know, but the facts are, we could have.
01:08:59
And if we did some of the right things done a stretch, we would have, you know? No.
01:09:06
You see, uh, this is named Margie Barrett.
01:09:09
You know, he started to slow down because the defense of Keenan on him, you know, because we don't have enough offense coming from from anyone else.
01:09:16
Yes.
01:09:17
So he's gonna be easier targets, you know, Pay attention to And that's just the reason why I go back into what you said.
01:09:22
You gotta put tray on the floor.
01:09:24
We need more offense, right? No. Stone.
01:09:29
Yeah.
01:09:30
Them 20 point games are going to start bringing it down. 10.
01:09:32
He's not gonna be able to score as much and no doubt, man.
01:09:35
All right, let me let me gmo.
01:09:38
I want to find out from you trying to get this thing up to Kate. Man, we have 1.8.
01:09:42
Almost one point.
01:09:43
Now.
01:09:44
We see if we can get it up to Kay before I get out of here.
01:09:45
But I got to get out of his suit.
01:09:48
Am Oh, God, man, Tell me what you think, man.
01:09:50
How do we How are we gonna beat Boston? How we gonna be boss o or if we're gonna beat him? How How can we not if how can we? While the best way to be Boston is to again to play the perimeter of frilly fairly deep, right? Like you have to whatever smaller Rose gonna try to do in the perimeter, they just trying to do it to essentially a guys mostly open shots.
01:10:14
So I know Randall's not going to do it, but it be nice if he actually steps up.
01:10:19
Ah, where? You know, he sees the shooter coming off member walk on offense and in his barrel him.
01:11:37
You know, it shouldn't be a bunch of guys trying to go ice on him. It doesn't make sense.
01:11:40
Try to get to the weaknesses.
01:11:41
They don't have a good front court.
01:11:42
Should be right.
01:11:43
That pick and roll, I would say having a fall festival.
01:11:46
Why even mention that fizzle? Doesn't know that is Ah, but since you have the guy's like a barrette And, like, the Celtics get their best guys into foul trouble. The best score.
01:12:05
Excuse me? The valuable.
01:12:06
Yeah.
01:12:07
Now I hate you, man.
01:12:08
I all right, Well, look, maybe I'm gonna come to you, man.
01:12:12
And then I didn't get a chance to take any phone calls.
01:12:14
And you're part of it is, you know, I mean, like, like some people.
01:12:17
I see it's buffering a little bit.
01:12:19
You know, the hotel internet is done pretty well tonight.
01:12:22
You know, saying he's done pretty well tonight.
01:12:24
I didn't see someone calling.
01:12:25
Tony Crow was trying to call in of you.
01:12:28
Tony. crew, if you can get in one more time.
01:12:30
516452246 But if not, I'm gonna take needs call.
01:12:34
We're gonna wrap it up, man.
01:12:36
Need God, man.
01:12:39
I mean, like, Guillermo said, And it's gonna start with defense first.
01:12:42
I mean, the Knicks have gotta lock down.
01:12:45
I mean, if you watch the game last year, coming last box game fix played really good defense on the ball.
01:12:52
It just The problem is they have lapses.
01:12:54
They have lapses, and it hurts us.
01:12:57
You know, we give up on open three, we give up a layup in sight.
01:13:01
I mean, but for the most part, we played really good defense.
01:13:04
That's Orlando.
01:13:05
So you're going to bring that team defense against the Celtics, second of all, and not have turnovers a lot of turnover because Boston and feeds off those turnovers they love to run.
01:13:15
When, when? When, when teams turn over the ball.
01:13:18
Um, and this lim second chance points.
01:13:24
Man, I really feel like the Knicks are gonna have to get on the board and hold Boston toe.
01:13:29
One shot, if they can do that consistently, the Knicks have a chance, but I just don't see it happening.
01:13:37
Um, I think Boston Boston played, uh, the bucks last yesterday.
01:13:42
And like I said, man, Hey, really good game.
01:13:54
Um, it's gonna be Yeah, actually.

00:01:04
Nick's family.
00:01:05
What's popping is your boy, and once again I am out of the studio.
00:01:11
But we still get it done.
00:01:13
I'm saying we still getting it done here, and B k Tonight we are going to preview the New York Knicks First Boston Celtics in Boston, the Re Max.
00:01:27
And this time the lineups look a little bit differently. These gentlemen.
00:01:31
The last time the Knicks played the Celtics, they were in New York at the home opener, and the Knicks had a plethora of different guards.
00:01:44
Right? You had Elfrid Payton starting at the point guard spot.
00:01:48
Dennis Smith Jr was backing him up, obviously, for tonight's or tomorrow's gain, Dennis Smith Jr is not available.
00:01:58
Elfrid Payton is not available.
00:02:02
So you got support.
00:02:03
Frankly, Lucchino, the only true point guard.
00:02:05
If you want to say to point guard, I'm sure there's a lot of people that'll question whether or not that's true.
00:02:11
But all right, I don't care how you feel about it.
00:02:20
That's what it is.
00:02:21
Ladies and Jimmy All right, Um, but give it.
00:02:27
Leave it to Fizdale in the over coaching that he likes to do, and people can agree to disagree with me.
00:02:36
That's fine with me.
00:02:38
I feel like it's over coaching this team right now.
00:02:41
Once again, he's going to start Wayne Ellington and R J Bear in the backcourt.
00:02:48
Listen, I understand the entire argument about Not that not not the foul trouble argument, but I understand the argument about having, ah, you know, a point guard to come off the bench.
00:03:05
I get it right, but I really do feel like you are holding back R J.
00:03:12
Barrett by starting him at the point guard spot instead of letting him play his natural position, at least at this point in his crew here, right and play and do what he's gonna do best.
00:03:25
I really do feel like it's holding him back.
00:03:28
I don't feel like it's the best for him, you know.
00:03:31
And it's small sample size.
00:03:33
Obviously, the last game Arjun Barrett didn't have one of his best games, and he was due to not have Ah, good game.
00:03:42
It was.
00:03:43
Do you know he'd been having really good games? Um, so he was doing Is it because he started at point guard? I don't know.
00:03:56
I'm not going to say that they are not connected.
00:04:01
I think they could be connected.
00:04:04
But anyway, David Fizdale is going to start our day Bear and Wayne Ellington in the back court once again.
00:04:10
And, of course, we're likely gonna have markets.
00:04:13
Morris and Julius Randle started together, and I think that's a mistake.
00:04:16
I think both of those mistakes are mistakes, and I think there needs to be a serious change to this starting lineup.
00:04:26
Serious tickets to the starting lineup.
00:04:28
There's too much one on one, too much isolation.
00:04:31
Um, not enough ball, movie or man.
00:04:33
Move me, you know? What can you say? You know, I'm saying, What can you say? And if you hear an echo, you hear the echo because of the room that a man.
00:04:45
So you probably hear a lot of reverb, you know, because you know, he's got high ceilings, know that kind of stuff, You know, school.
00:04:53
I'm saying we still doing what we do.
00:04:56
You know me.
00:04:57
No, but that's the story comes out. It came today.
00:05:00
I don't like it.
00:05:01
I don't want to see R.
00:05:02
J.
00:05:03
Barrett running that point guard spot.
00:05:04
I'm not saying that he can't do it, and he can't learn to do it, but I want to see Berit at his natural position with Frank Miller Keena at the point guard spot.
00:05:16
At this point in time, I feel like Fizdale is simply over coaching the team.
00:05:23
You know me just over coaching the team.
00:05:25
You know, sometimes you just got to do what's simple.
00:05:28
That's it.
00:05:29
You don't have to over coach.
00:05:30
He just got to do what? Simple.
00:05:33
And this is one of those times where you just got to do what simple.
00:05:37
You know, that's about it.
00:05:39
Um, we'll see how I will say this.
00:05:42
I will say this.
00:05:43
I did think that it was some better, more ball movement in the beginning of that game against the Orlando Magic Better ball movement in the first half.
00:05:56
It stalled in the second half due to hetero born isolation play.
00:06:02
You know, I'm saying it's stalled.
00:06:07
We'll see if we, you know, we'll see if we learn from it.
00:06:10
We're playing a better defense.
00:06:13
No, I'm sorry.
00:06:14
We're not playing a better defense.
00:06:15
We're playing another good defense.
00:06:18
The Boston Celtics are, I think, 7/9 in the league in defense of rating right now.
00:06:25
All right.
00:06:26
Deal lined the magic was ranked number two.
00:06:28
Now, I think they're ranking was had a little bit more to do with the pace of play, you know? But I'm not happy with this.
00:06:39
R J.
00:06:40
Barrett and Wayne Ellington in the backcourt.
00:06:42
You know, saying I got game on the chat.
00:06:43
I want to check and make sure that Gamow can hear me.
00:06:46
Yeah. Okay. Hear me.
00:06:48
All right.
00:06:49
Good.
00:06:50
And I can hear you as well.
00:06:52
I got a different.
00:06:53
I got a different set up here, you know, saying so what you say.
00:07:03
What do you think about this? Uh, r J Bear and Wayne Elton starting in the back court once again against the Celtics.
00:07:18
Hold on one second.
00:07:19
One second. One second.
00:07:20
Okay. There you go. Now they can hear you. Now, go ahead.
00:07:22
I'm sorry, my bad guys.
00:07:24
Yo.
00:07:25
Yeah, It's trash, man.
00:07:27
Um is, though is officially, um, he's a culture out of plan.
00:07:34
He has no idea what he's doing at best. He's following politics.
00:07:38
Um, you know, again, where Frank is out there be You're running two guys, and as much as I like r J in the PG position, that's you.
00:07:48
That's mostly if we have.
00:07:50
If we had a support of shooting guard or a system where the ball is moving around, I will understand.
00:07:56
Well, this is a team that you're gonna have to grind it out every game, have a chance, and we've already given up 34 games or whatever record is that we could have one.
00:08:07
Or, you know, we could have done something if we had a defensive presence.
00:08:12
I'm sorry, but you win and you end the game.
00:08:16
The defense.
00:08:18
You need to have Frank in that line of not just because the defense, but also he can move the ball around now.
00:08:23
Don't get me wrong.
00:08:24
I like Arjun, but again, like I said, fizzles gonna burn R J out because he's he's infatuated with a guy that he drives and then he could get production from He's gonna burn this Korg out.
00:08:37
Why not have a so called veteran and freight who can least push the ball around? Has that point our mindset? And at the very least, we'll give you the defense to offset, if not shut down, offset or or nullify a Kemba Walker, who got hot in the fourth quarter or in the second half against us or the other kid.
00:08:59
The one for her dude won't the dreads or it's Marcus Smart.
00:09:03
Who hit? I don't know how many threes in the first quarter against his first quarter second quarter against us.
00:09:08
Ah, I'm tired of I'm not gonna fire bandwagon yet.
00:09:13
Well, I'm starting to get tired of physio men.
00:09:15
He talks, but he has no idea how easy it is.
00:09:18
A used car salesman.
00:09:19
I don't know what he learned with with With With Pat Riley.
00:09:23
It doesn't seem like you learned much.
00:09:24
I don't know what he learned, what he was supposed to.
00:09:26
Even though I mean, obviously, Pat Rice put it all on the same umbrella.
00:09:29
Yeah.
00:09:30
I don't understand what it's like. Sin.
00:09:32
Why wouldn't you start, Frank? And the thing that gets me mad and the thing that I'm so disgustingly right now, I know that DOJ lost his step, mom, but I think he found out about it after the game.
00:09:44
Correct.
00:09:45
So when he had him in that game that we went to you saw he didn't do it in the first half. Fine.
00:09:50
Everybody was saying, put frank in because it's the logical thing is a struggling right.
00:09:55
He puts his guy in again.
00:09:58
And yet when it comes to Frank, who shone your lease when he's in there except for the Spurs game, he gives you defense.
00:10:06
That can at least keep your team at the very least, level.
00:10:09
What, another team? That's offensively.
00:10:11
My friends have minded.
00:10:14
He doesn't want to put played his kid, and and now he has a true thing going on, and we don't know where he is.
00:10:19
So the starting lineup of elements in we'll get rid of you trying points. That's one thing.
00:10:24
If you try to get points, then why don't you sit Morris? Because Morris, for some reason, thinks he's Kobe and he shoot out of his his butt.
00:10:32
And for some reason he doesn't.
00:10:34
He wants to play where he's playing for his contract now, instead of being this defensive leader who can give us the shots here and there and what not like, you know, I mean, like, it's like fizzle, like when this guy talks.
00:10:44
I just get annoyed with because I know it's all B s man for you.
00:10:47
Do not start Frank again, totally set the tone defensively which you need it in that first game of Marcus Smart hit 34 threes on us.
00:10:54
This is annoying.
00:10:56
Brooke, this is why last and we got to go to this stuff.
00:10:59
This is why I get ****ed with basketball coaches.
00:11:01
Man is like, when What? The thing that happens, we'll walk on and guys who are the so called chosen ones of the team.
00:11:09
My cousin Rennes in gay went to Ally.
00:11:11
You didn't play high school ball.
00:11:13
You went toe ally, you and he.
00:11:14
Hey, didn't I get any burn and he would kill whatever he got in you go.
00:11:19
Ass is a guy named Jamal.
00:11:21
Um, his name is Jamal wins.
00:11:23
He works at St Francis.
00:11:25
He was CEO and his here.
00:11:26
You could go to the banner, go to St Francis.
00:11:28
His name is on a bandage. Jamal Williams.
00:11:30
I think it is.
00:11:31
And he would tell you you and I played my cousin, you know, instrument in here.
00:11:35
And he was like your brother.
00:11:36
Your cousin was nice.
00:11:38
It was like everyone was like, I was a travesty.
00:11:40
This kid in play because he was a walk on.
00:11:42
He was beating other kids who were, Ah, given scholarships because you don't have a scholarship.
00:11:49
He couldn't eat in play, and I all semi this guy could have, at the very least, bring us some of the team.
00:11:53
Yeah, this is what happens when people lose faith.
00:11:56
People's careers shatter or it falls apart because these stupid coaches who have these politics don't want to actually win.
00:12:04
But what they have, they want to go and win through politics or satisfied contracts and stuff.
00:12:10
And this is what I'm seeing with this guy, man, for you to put Dia's J when he was struggling.
00:12:14
But it takes is a struggle for you to put Frank in.
00:12:17
Even though we won one of those games because of Frank's defense, this is my bottom and that maybe you could make some sense of it for us.
00:12:26
Man, can you make some sense of in fours? Viv makes him ***ually brought.
00:12:31
Doesn't said I can't rationalize.
00:12:34
Lineup has problems.
00:12:36
It's beyond the point guard from two.
00:12:39
Like the point guard issue, it is one issue, often overall problem with the rosters.
00:12:46
It is, um, I think that just for Morris and Randall together is just not.
00:12:54
It's not a good parent of It's You could be, you know, situational pairing.
00:12:59
But it's not a good pairing to start off.
00:13:02
Turn off the game. Started the quarters.
00:13:04
Um, start of the half.
00:13:05
What? Whatever it is, I don't like that Perry.
00:13:08
It seems to kind of, you know, neutralize Mitch a bit.
00:13:12
And as a reason we've seen Mitch is minutes get cut off.
00:13:16
And Wayne Ellington? The problem is, Wayne is that Notre like he If he's not hitting a shot, he's useless.
00:13:23
Right? And you know what? God, like Wayne Ellington.
00:13:25
They're very, you know, they're hot, They're hot when they're cool, when they're not in there.
00:13:30
Completely useless.
00:13:32
So, uh, you know, really, what a book? But the magic game board out, too, is that none of them hit shots.
00:13:38
None of the more important guys have shots.
00:13:40
And when they didn't hit shocks, you know, we basically just couldn't score.
00:13:44
And that was the reason that we we sunk as it is now for the lineup itself, right? Look, I think they got they got to go 10.
00:13:54
It's just they have to go 10.
00:13:55
It's the real question is you know if you're gonna bring Enzo, I guess.
00:14:00
Guess who do you sit? And I mean, I guess you just I guess what you do is if you'd realize that Wayne is not making anything, maybe just just brings Owen.
00:14:09
But, you know, desseaux have that mentality can Is he able to, like, deal with that? Inconsistency is the is the real question.
00:14:18
And what I mean, inconsistent, mean is like, you know, Is he a type person that can easily warm up, You know, be sitting on the bench, register games, and Nelson loves it further, but that's not an easy thing to ask for.
00:14:30
So, you know, I see it.
00:14:33
I mean, I don't know what the god**** calm baffled, too.
00:14:37
Uh, but I don't know if there's really an easy right now with the point guard depth as it is, I will be.
00:14:44
Frank played 30 minutes, You know, in Orlando, I mean, I don't know what more we can honestly ask for.
00:14:51
I mean, 30 minutes is still a good amount of minutes.
00:14:53
I mean, well, I mean, yes.
00:14:55
I mean, yeah, 30 minutes is a good amount of minutes, right? And I do understand that, and You know, he played, He played the game.
00:15:03
But I think at least for me, what I want to see one.
00:15:08
I just don't understand.
00:15:10
Look, when he when he first did it, I understood it.
00:15:12
Now, okay, let's see.
00:15:14
Let's see what it looks like.
00:15:16
I wasn't It was okay, but I wasn't impressed.
00:15:19
I felt that it dwarfed the production of R. J.
00:15:23
Berry.
00:15:24
All right, so I'm like, I you know, I think we need to have somebody else as the distributor facilitator on that r J. Barrett.
00:15:31
Do what he does.
00:15:32
I think that's best to start the game.
00:15:34
And also, I think that, frankly, Latina can help set its own defensively to begin the game.
00:15:41
Those 1st 56 minutes of the game helps set the tone defensively especially, You know, you got a guard that is going to be electric like Kemba Walker, right? Wayne Ellington is not going to stop him, All right? Jim Barrett maybe could do a decent job on him, but we know Frank and I'm not based on anything on fever.
00:16:00
I could care less about feeble right now.
00:16:02
We just know that Frank, complete defense.
00:16:05
We just know you could play defense.
00:16:06
He could have a better effort than anybody else.
00:16:09
Right? So, I mean, we'll give you the best effort at the point guard position.
00:16:13
It's That's a fact.
00:16:15
Now, I guess the real question here is this right? You know his R J as a point guard, you know, is there any rational justification to give R J any point garments, you know, like does he should get more than you know that in 15 minutes is your point car.
00:16:33
I mean, clearly, it's not working, I guess in either capacity, right? I mean, are just just really be the two, right? Yeah, right.
00:16:40
I think in this situation that we're in right now with the lack of point guards, you know, somebody has to play that spot.
00:16:47
I guess you could go treat if you wanted to, but you know, Tria doesn't do that naturally either.
00:16:52
You know, I'm saying stuck, right, because you're kind of and there's no Obviously, Kadeem, Alan's not healthy, So you're almost like there's really just one coin card. Rg Barry.
00:17:03
Right.
00:17:04
Well, you're almost ill toe lose Lou Tika.
00:17:08
It's a no win it paradise And I don't know I don't know where you you know, you could start Frank and then, you know, see, see planets blacker than minutes, maybe.
00:17:18
Yeah, exactly.
00:17:19
That's what you do. I think you start, Frank.
00:17:21
So you got R J and Frank starting in the back court.
00:17:24
And then, you know, when you begin to make substitution is you don't take either, You know, you don't You never have a lineup in without one of those two on the floor.
00:17:34
You know, at at this point in time with the with what we have going on, you never have a lineup in without one of those two guys on the floor.
00:17:42
You know, that's the way I see it right now, you know, based on everything that's happening.
00:17:48
All right.
00:17:49
Now that is that they either frank or r j and or are there on the floor together.
00:17:54
Exactly what I get, what you're trying to say.
00:17:56
Which makes four senses have him start together all right, tone, and then takes taste.
00:18:02
They take Frank out earlier, or take cardio earlier.
00:18:05
And that play either one of those two of the second unit, you know, when either or sitting right exactly that you know, bring him back in.
00:18:12
I guess Together, Sometime within the last stage, it's half of 1/4 right? So? So, for example, you could go.
00:18:18
You can have Frank in all, Jr starting together in the backcourt.
00:18:24
Right? At six minutes, you take Frank out and let's just say you bring in Wayne Ellington or Twitter or dots.
00:18:31
Whatever it is you do right now, we just talk about the guard spots when I talk about the other stuff, right.
00:18:37
And and then our jays and, you know, for another three minutes or so You late.
00:18:44
You let Frank get a breather for about three minutes, and then you bring Frank in for R. J.
00:18:49
So there are Jake could get a breather, right? He let Frank play until, you know, maybe nine minutes until into the second quarter.
00:18:57
And then you bring R J for Frank.
00:19:00
R.
00:19:01
J plays, you know, three minutes and then, you know, when you get to 56 minutes, you bring Frank back in and you got both of them to finish off the half.
00:19:11
You see what I'm saying? Like, you could stagger home so that you always got one of those guys on the floor.
00:19:14
Yeah, I've got thinking if I'm crying, ****ogies are.
00:19:17
And I know I know teams do it all the time.
00:19:19
I'm trying to think of the best example I must think of, like, you know, like Philly does it all the time.
00:19:26
They should stagger all their guys guys like, you know, they take Alec and they take out Embiid really early.
00:19:32
Then you come back in for a part of, like, the end of the first quarter.
00:19:35
And then, you know, you get that he be taken out like the tenor, like, nine or eight minutes left the second quarter, and then maybe come back around three minutes.
00:19:43
Maybe you do something like that.
00:19:45
Ah, and then that really sort of souls your guard problem, right? Yeah.
00:19:48
Is there in together, they're going to start their into set the tone.
00:19:52
And then once it set the tone, they could let somebody else sustain the cone.
00:19:57
But I think that's a good solution.
00:19:59
Like you just mentioned.
00:20:00
The real question now is the forwards, right? So clearly the Morris and Randall's pairing.
00:20:05
You know, once you put them together, it's it's a mess, right? I they? They both huggable too much.
00:20:12
You know it.
00:20:13
The ball gets stuck with both them together and is just ugly, right? It's very stagnated offense.
00:20:19
So I mean, ideally, you just want to flip Morris out, put it in, put it in Doc's, I don't know, but anybody else, because I think Morris, you have to separate that duo.
00:20:33
Just have to.
00:20:35
You guys separate him.
00:20:37
You really got to separate those two because it's it's is getting bad that back and forth, back and forth.
00:20:44
Them, too.
00:20:45
You know them? Two guys taken taking shots and Morris, I'll say this.
00:20:51
Morris, I feel, holds the ball a little bit longer than Randall.
00:20:56
Um, you know, Randall and Morris, and Randall passes more than the Morris does.
00:21:03
Well, you know, Morris is barely passing the basketball.
00:21:06
He's looking for his shot.
00:21:08
And, you know, I was so excited for more is to be here.
00:21:14
So excited for more is to be here.
00:21:16
But now I'm kind of like Man, I don't like what he's doing.
00:21:19
I don't know if he's changing his game to try to prove that he could be a prime time player or if this is just two years.
00:21:27
You know what I'm saying? I don't know.
00:21:29
This is there's nothing prime time but his performances.
00:21:31
First time games, like I'm telling you that, you know, this is the 35% from the floor.
00:21:37
Uh, I mean, it's like, basically bad everywhere.
00:21:40
You know, there's nothing.
00:21:41
There's nothing really worth bragging about.
00:21:43
Morris is getting to be quite honest, but yeah, you're right.
00:21:46
Morris Morris hog the ball more than Randall us.
00:21:49
The problem is, when Randall holds the ball too much, he often gets like, tangled up in the paint.
00:21:54
And then, yeah, he just turns the ball over way too much for her big.
00:22:00
And that's his brother.
00:22:01
Yeah, and let me get to Nate.
00:22:03
See if Nate has a solution.
00:22:05
All of Nate's figured it out, you know, maybe need Maybe Nate understands David Fizdale right now.
00:22:13
God, do you give us something, man? So I think there's some things we need to clear up real quick regarding this point guard situation.
00:22:24
Okay, First off R.
00:22:25
J. Barrett is not a point guard.
00:22:27
I think that this deal is playing MBA to Kay and trying to use a special toy to try to do everything.
00:22:36
And r J Bear, It's not point guard.
00:22:38
He is a two at the most, and he could be a three in certain situations Blame at his position Mill Kina does need to start this game because of D S J.
00:22:50
And, um uh, well, for Peyton being hurt because he is the purest point guard and he is the point guard that could probably get everybody involved.
00:23:01
Now, the thing that surprises me is if business was talking about, like, Okay, we want to play the Latina on the bench because he's our only other point guard we have.
00:23:11
Why not bring up Kadeem Allen? You know what? I think it d miss Still, I think he's still hurting.
00:23:19
Well, we still hurt, okay, because that would just baffles me like you have him on a two way deal.
00:23:25
Right now, you're hurting at the point guard position.
00:23:27
I'm not saying could be in.
00:23:28
Alan's gonna be anything special, but he's a veteran.
00:23:31
He's older.
00:23:32
He could run the offense as a backup and letting in Latina start because the truth is right now, we don't know when b s she's coming back, and l her Peyton's growing injury.
00:23:43
That's a nagging things.
00:23:44
Oh, hamstring, hamstring injury and strengthen our hands Even worse, Samson, you know, But the thing is, and here's here's what I would do with the starting lineups Him.
00:23:56
I would take Morris and put him on the bench and start Knox because here's the thing.
00:24:03
Knox has been the most aggressive player outside of Barrett this season, like he has really taken it to the Cup.
00:24:10
He's shooting a good clip at from three.
00:24:14
I mean, this guy is confidence is really starting to gain and and on, Honestly, I'm tired of seeing this game being on the perimeter.
00:24:23
We've got to score inside.
00:24:25
We've gotta get buckets.
00:24:27
I mean, we don't get to the free throw line.
00:24:29
We don't really have any inside gain.
00:24:32
Everything's all perimeter.
00:24:33
So what you get to the line, we just don't know.
00:24:37
We just don't make on waking with shooting 67% or something like that from line.
00:24:43
We're not making them, you know.
00:24:44
But here's the thing, Sam.
00:24:45
If you compare him to other teams, where do we rank? As far as free throws attempted were probably body around the bottom.
00:24:53
Let's see if I could look up that step right now, I'm not exactly sure we'll see if I could look up that stat.
00:24:59
There's an interesting things that, you know that we got to pay attention to to this game.
00:25:04
A lot of it revolves around turnovers.
00:25:06
Man, we got we really got to protect the ball game.
00:25:09
The Celtics are number one in points off turnovers right now, you know, saying way, Turn over this basketball like we have been, you know, we're gonna give them a field day.
00:25:20
Did you watch how the Celtics shut down your honest and ****ed him off? So down.
00:25:25
Okay, be honest in the game in the fourth quarter.
00:25:30
I mean, he couldn't.
00:25:31
He kept getting offensive charges.
00:25:33
He was getting frustrated.
00:25:35
I mean, he he looked like a shell of himself.
00:25:38
You're the Celtic just threw everybody at Impossible.
00:25:42
Yeah, let me see if I could five free throws.
00:25:45
Um, I don't see free throw attempt.
00:25:48
I look it up.
00:25:49
I'll see if I could find it.
00:25:50
I want to get to you.
00:25:51
Just a little bit of a breakdown.
00:25:52
If you guys can get to it, I'm gonna come.
00:25:55
Too vivid.
00:25:56
Maybe he has it come to this real quick, and then we'll try to get to I'm gonna get to this breakdown of some stats, All right? This? Yeah, I'm not.
00:26:07
I'm on right now.
00:26:08
So we take What do you say we have 26.
00:26:10
4 free throw attempts a game which would be fourth in the league right now.
00:26:16
Okay, The problem is we only hit like you said 67% which is basically second last in the league.
00:26:23
So I mean, he you know, we're getting the line, you know? It's good. It is it.
00:26:29
What good is it if you can't make me not go make him Exactly what our problem is? R.
00:26:33
J is the biggest culprit.
00:26:34
He's 40% of the field.
00:26:36
He takes the most free throws suit.
00:26:40
45 46% insured.
00:26:42
40 41 21%.
00:26:46
Yeah.
00:26:47
Way gotta fix that.
00:26:50
Rando psychos line five times.
00:26:51
He's shot 60%.
00:26:55
And then, you know, like the out of the other guys, the only other guys traer tree a shooting lesson.
00:27:00
70%? No.
00:27:04
Yeah, yeah, man.
00:27:06
And he'll listen.
00:27:08
That's hurting us.
00:27:09
Especially the way we give up double digit elites.
00:27:12
You know, we've given up a double digit lead in just about every game we've played so far this season.
00:27:16
Be giving up a double digit lead.
00:27:18
We've been able to fight back, but we've given up those leads, man.
00:27:21
Right now, I mean the day, like you said, you know, the free throws? Um, we actually, you're not the worst, Even assists, which is kind of funny out of it all.
00:27:30
But we were near the bottom five and turnovers given up, which is, uh, we're just basically 19 again, which is terrible.
00:27:40
I don't know how you can win games, you know, do with that.
00:27:44
But obviously all connects to each other, right? You know, we have the same number of sets a member number of turnovers for shooting, less than 43% of the field and the most of it, actually, Honestly, shooting 35% from three.
00:27:58
We're taking a decent threes, but they're shooting 46 for 72 Yeah, s so you know, we gotta we gotta We gotta clean up a lot.
00:28:07
I don't read part of it.
00:28:08
That's a big culprit, you know.
00:28:10
Ah, Boris is a big culprit.
00:28:12
Uh, but it all there, everyone.
00:28:14
Everyone's numbers all add up to this.
00:28:17
Let me get to Guillermo.
00:28:21
You can use um Yep.
00:28:24
You made a good point, right? Or a point that if we're always trying to fight to come back, what did it make sense to start your team off with? Defense.
00:28:36
But I just I'm just so perplexed like eyes.
00:28:38
Not people here are saying some people here saying, Frank, um, he's not a point guard.
00:28:44
Fear enough, But we gonna have to work with what we got.
00:28:48
It is like the potato famine in Ireland.
00:28:52
It's like, All right, they had a famine because it had potatoes.
00:28:54
But I like you guys got fish.
00:28:56
You guys got other things you could make.
00:28:58
You don't have to starve, right? Why do we have to suffer? Because we don't have the prototypical point guard that fizzle once.
00:29:07
And I'm sorry, fizz those offense.
00:29:09
And it's not just me, right? I sort of saw.
00:29:12
And I forgot What it what? Uh, instagram account? It was, But they said they got us.
00:29:18
We got to stop with this isil ball.
00:29:20
I sold ball does not work.
00:29:21
It only works for one team, the Rockets, as because of James Harden and his uses rate is astronomical.
00:29:28
That's like if we had you have one player on the team, you given probably 50% of 50 the ball 50% of time.
00:29:34
And you basically have supporting cast around him to Basie, uh, hide his weaknesses and make him ah, more effective, right.
00:29:43
We don't have that fizzle.
00:29:45
Forget even the offense.
00:29:46
Whatever you want to run that stupid handoff.
00:29:49
Ah, elementary school friends go ahead.
00:29:52
If we're always having a fight to come back into the game, why not start with the first half close and then take Frank out for that there or whatever and then bring him back for the fourth to make sure your defense is still intact? You could shut down their best players.
00:30:06
Other teams.
00:30:07
I've seen other teams do it.
00:30:09
That didn't have Premier Point guards of premier players, where they've basically worked off of defense to try to stay in the games wise.
00:30:16
And this that the AMC Matt we have.
00:30:18
We played against the magic right that Magic had the lowest field goal percentage, right? People say all we play good defense Bob, All right, I'm thinking about this.
00:30:27
We actually play good defense.
00:30:30
If we lost the team that the lowest field goal percentage of the game does that, you know my understanding that they only scored 93 points, whatever, but if they had the lowest field goal percentage, right? And I'm just I'm just thinking about these things.
00:30:42
This is like, I'm trying to find a reason as to why Frank isn't playing.
00:30:46
And if you want easy buckets, the best way to get them is to what it steals, steals and stops.
00:30:53
Get Steve.
00:30:54
Frank gets the ball or whoever gets it because Archie was a good is showing that he's a good defender, especially have to play that pick and roll defense.
00:31:01
And mind you, Sim.
00:31:03
The Celtics don't have a really good front court anymore.
00:31:06
They don't have Horford anymore, and I don't have a big body and Baines anymore.
00:31:10
So what are they going to be doing? They're gonna like they did when we went to the game on Saturday.
00:31:14
They were living by the by the perimeter.
00:31:16
That's great for Frank.
00:31:17
Frank doesn't have to get this.
00:31:18
I have to run into a tower where he has to try to fight. To get around that.
00:31:22
And maybe Randall's two Lazy doesn't want to commit himself.
00:31:25
You could literally just play on the perimeter and defend that way. Simba.
00:31:30
There's no reason it's the wife. Frank isn't start.
00:31:33
If you could try to destroy whatever the Celtics game plan is, which I don't think they have as good as a game plan anymore.
00:31:39
That maybe, say, last year had offered and even Kyrie, Irving and even the year before that if they're living.
00:31:46
Basically, Kemble was a a shoot first point guard who has to get Ho doesn't have a great efficiency numbers, disrupt his game, and you throw probably 40% of the game out of whack.
00:31:57
Why is this so hard? It only goes back to politics, and this is what gets me ****, man.
00:32:02
You have this around on your team.
00:32:04
You don't want to use it, man.
00:32:05
Well, let me say this, and this is very telling.
00:32:07
This is kind of non.
00:32:08
Nick's right so badly, you know, you know, just for a second.
00:32:11
This is non nix in looking at the Celtics, and they're all faints.
00:32:18
And the Brooklyn Nets and they're all fence Can the actress in AC Atkinson? You know, he said, Right now they have no structure on offense.
00:32:30
They're not playing with any kind of structure.
00:32:33
And, you know, do you know why that is? You guys know what it is.
00:32:36
There's a reason why that is it's gonna re nets.
00:32:39
I mean, I'm sorry.
00:32:40
Something's play with a little bit more structured and probably the Nets.
00:32:45
Kyrie.
00:32:46
There's one exactly.
00:32:48
There is one of the red between the two since Simpson.
00:32:51
I just I just want to bring others.
00:32:53
I just say one thing about this.
00:32:54
What did I say when we were talking about the career? I said that where Atkinson had with that team with De Lo with didn't Woody will avert.
00:33:06
There was an offensive system around it, and those guys love playing around each other.
00:33:11
Now, did they need more parts to get to the next round? Yes, but you had a foundation that things were working.
00:33:16
I said this Kyrie Irving is in his Kobe mode.
00:33:20
Remember when Kobe when shack left, Kobe went into this mall where it was all about me? Nothing else.
00:33:26
I got to score 30 40 points and I'm gonna win either through me or we're not gonna do nothing at all, right? That's the same thing.
00:33:32
So they got they got Kyrie.
00:33:34
You score 50 points in a loss.
00:33:37
Perfect. Nice having mood swings.
00:33:39
Knicks fans think I agree with three and and fizzle right now is that we didn't go after that guy and Katie, who needs to be on.
00:33:48
He needs to talk like he's on a ah freakin talk show every day, man.
00:33:52
Thank God we didn't get those supers.
00:33:54
Kyrie Irving, Head case Katie Headcase.
00:33:57
I just want to throw that out there, take a little jab at the Brooklyn Nets.
00:34:03
I'm glad and go through some of these numbers that we'll get back to talking.
00:34:06
Ladies and gentlemen, do me a favor if you need to.

You guys can see I'm not in the studio right now out on travel once again.
00:34:33
So I'm in the hotel, but we're doing this anyway.
00:34:35
I got about 24 25 minutes left because at 11.
00:34:40
30 11.
00:34:41
35 I gotta prepare for my got training to do tomorrow.
00:34:45
I got a little bit more to do to prepare for it, so I got to get off a little bit earlier than usual.
00:34:51
All right, so But we're gonna go ahead and talk this stuff anyway.
00:34:55
I want to get to It's the breakdown.
00:34:58
And really look at you.
00:35:00
Don't take a look at some of the numbers behind this game coming up tomorrow night the next.
00:35:07
Clearly, I'm gonna be looking for revenge.
00:35:09
Hopefully, they're motivated now.
00:35:12
They don't have the same number of bodies that they had against the Celtics on opening night, but it shouldn't matter much.
00:35:24
I mean, it's gonna matter, but I think we have enough.
00:35:27
If we can play good basketball, can we play? But good basketball against the Celtics will see.
00:35:38
Listen, I'm gonna be It's a tough situation with the Knicks.
00:35:45
You could look at it in two different ways.
00:35:48
You could look at it and say, You know what? We've had 1/4 quarter lead.
00:35:53
We've played five games were one in four.
00:35:56
You could look and say We've had 1/4 quarter lead and for those games, we couldn't finish the deal.
00:36:05
You can look at it and say, That's a good thing.
00:36:07
That's a positive because we're doing it without a competent point guard.
00:36:12
We're doing it without a point guard that can actually organized, I guess.
00:36:21
I guess Franken organized a team, but do more just organized can organize and create.
00:36:28
And I'm not.
00:36:29
I'm not saying anything negative about Frank.
00:36:30
I'm just saying, you know, you know what? We need to actually get these guys going.
00:36:37
We're doing it without that right now.
00:36:40
Well, we're not doing it without it.
00:36:41
We've been in the game in every game without that right now.
00:36:45
You know what I'm saying? If one of these guys can emerge and I think in order for one of these guys to emerge way need some consistency, this deal is gonna have to choose someone to say I'm rocking with you and let it be consistent.
00:37:03
And maybe l for paying is the guy that he's doing that with l for pinkeye.
00:37:06
I don't know.
00:37:09
You know, it is hard for me to say.
00:37:12
But, you know, we've been competitive.
00:37:18
We can't close.
00:37:19
We don't have a closer.
00:37:21
That's been the difference between us.
00:37:23
And that was the difference between us and Brooklyn.
00:37:25
We didn't have a closer same thing with San Antonio, right? We'd have a closer with having someone finish the deal.
00:37:36
So we gonna get out that way, Or we could look at it and say, It's gonna be like this the entire season.
00:37:43
We're not gonna be able to close games.
00:37:48
I don't know, man.
00:37:49
I don't know.
00:37:50
Anyway, let's take a look at this, right? The projected starting lineups for tomorrow.
00:37:56
Once again, the Knicks are gonna go with R.
00:37:58
J.
00:37:59
Berry, Wayne Ellington, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, Right.
00:38:04
That's the projected starting lineup injuries for the next.
00:38:09
And it's mere junior.
00:38:10
There's a death in the family is with this family.
00:38:12
All right, Uh, condolences to him in and our prayers thoughts.
00:38:16
I'm going out to him and his family.
00:38:18
Overpaying has ah, sore right.
00:38:22
Hamstring Hamstrings could be tricky.
00:38:26
You don't know what he might be Back.
00:38:29
He's out.
00:38:30
Reggie Bullock.
00:38:31
You know, we already knew he was gonna be out next problem, plus a death in the family.
00:38:34
And, you know, I really do feel for Reggie Bullet, though.
00:38:38
You guys look at the back story.
00:38:40
He lost a sister about five years ago in Baltimore.
00:38:45
Now he lost another sister to gun violence in Baltimore.
00:38:49
I think there were, like, nine people shot, um, and he and his sister was one of them.
00:38:56
So you know, it is tragic, man.
00:38:59
Not that anyone's death isn't tragic, but it's definitely tragic, and I feel form.
00:39:04
I know he's hurting.
00:39:05
Uh, you know, you know, much love to him and his family.
00:39:09
Dennis Smith Jr.
00:39:10
As well, ladies and gentlemen, you know you must love to all of those guys, and you know, I'm keeping them in my prayers and hopefully you're doing the same.
00:39:21
I'm pretty sure you're doing the same, but anyway, Reggie Bullock really is not playing and will be out for you.
00:39:31
No foreseeable future.
00:39:34
That's what these starters look like.
00:39:36
That's what's projected for the Knicks tomorrow.
00:39:38
For the Boston Celtics, you got Kemba Walker at point guard Jalen Brown, that shooting guard Jason say them at small forward Gordon Hayward, that power forward, and Robert Williams at center.
00:39:50
Now Jalen Brown did not play against the Milwaukee Books just a couple of yesterday.
00:39:59
Last night, he did not play against the Milwaukee Bucks. Do this sickness.
00:40:04
I'm expecting him.
00:40:05
We should expect him to play against the Knicks tomorrow night and hopefully I said Jalen Brown and not Jason Tatum.
00:40:15
I met Jalen Brown.
00:40:16
If I did say Jason Tatum, I meant Jalen Brown.
00:40:18
Jalen Brown was out with sickness, and we'll see if he's going to play against the Knicks.
00:40:25
If he does not play against the Knicks than Marcus, Smart will likely playing that shooting guard position.
00:40:34
That's what happened last night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
00:40:38
Marcus Smart started that shooting guard, and there was actually someone else.
00:40:42
He started at center.
00:40:44
But these other projected starters for tomorrow night against, you know, the next and the Celtics, you know.
00:40:54
And you know, I look at this man.
00:40:56
Wayne Ellington is not athletic enough to play defense with, you know, stick with Jalen Brown, that that's who's who's gonna guard.
00:41:04
He's not athletic enough to play defense against Kemba Walker, that that's who he would guard R J Mary could probably play defense on either.
00:41:13
I would rather see R J buried on Jalen Brown.
00:41:16
They can walk all right, so, you know, I don't know.
00:41:21
I don't get it.
00:41:22
I don't understand it.
00:41:25
I really don't.
00:41:27
You know.
00:41:28
And again, this market's Morris Julius Randle man, they got to split it up.
00:41:32
We really don't.
00:41:33
We got to split it up.
00:41:36
Let's go on, man.
00:41:37
Let's take a look.
00:41:38
Get, uh, Let's take a look at some numbers.
00:41:44
A team comparison. Right now.
00:41:46
The Knicks are one and four, actually, not one and three.
00:41:49
The Boston Celtics are three and one of the next average 101 100.
00:41:55
6 points per game.
00:41:57
Their opponents averaged 108.
00:41:58
8 points per game, the next shooting, 42.
00:42:01
3% from the field, 35.
00:42:04
2% from three.
00:42:06
The average 18.
00:42:07
8 assists per game and 18.
00:42:10
4 turnovers begin.
00:42:11
Obviously, this is a small sample size.
00:42:16
It's a small sample size, you know.
00:42:18
Just five games into the season, the Knicks defensive rating is 107.7.
00:42:27
That's good for 17th in the league.
00:42:31
And of course you know the Knicks assist total that Nick's have the second to worst, the second to last assist to turnover ratio in the league.
00:42:41
That's terrible, That is, that's definitely terrible.
00:42:45
Obviously, we don't have, you know, a competent point guard on the offensive side of the ball.
00:42:52
All right, so maybe that's something that you would expect.
00:42:55
You know, as far as the turnover scenario, though you're looking at you.
00:42:58
See Marcus Morris, you know, you see what he does with the ball.
00:43:02
You see Julius Randle what he does with the ball impounding into, um, no pounding in the defense's pounding into three and four guys trying to make a play, turning the ball off his foot.
00:43:14
You know, doing some other.
00:43:15
You know, there were some things that you would not recommend.
00:43:19
Now I will say last night versus the Orlando Magic Julius Randle.
00:43:27
He recognized the double and triple teams a little bit better.
00:43:32
He had seven assists.
00:43:33
He had three turnovers.
00:43:35
Listen, that's a feat for Julius Randle because he's been getting 5678 turnovers, right? He had three turnovers.
00:43:44
He got the ball out a little bit better.
00:43:48
I still think he takes one too many dribbles when he gets in that paint and which allows the defense to collapse a little bit harder and he struggles to get that ball out.
00:43:58
If he takes one less trouble.
00:43:59
I think recognizes where the defense is coming from a little bit quicker and is able to get that quick pass out.
00:44:06
You're gonna have the defense scrambling.
00:44:11
You'll have him scrambling.
00:44:15
Hopefully, he'll be able to learn that.
00:44:17
All right. The Boston Celtics.
00:44:19
They average 109.
00:44:20
8 points per game.
00:44:22
Opponents against the Celtics average 103.
00:44:24
3, something shoot 41.
00:44:26
1% from the field issue, 35.
00:44:29
6% from three.
00:44:32
The average 22 assists, the average 11 turnovers per game.
00:44:37
The defense of waiting for the Celtics is on 2.7.
00:44:40
Thats good for ninth in the league again.
00:44:42
Day.
00:44:43
That's another good defense that the Knicks are facing.
00:44:45
It just faced the number two ranked defense in the league, at least at that time with the Orlando Magic.
00:44:51
Now they're facing The Boston Celtics are also a good defense.
00:44:59
All right, let's take a look at some keys to the game keys to the game for the Knicks.
00:45:04
Mr.
00:45:05
Celtics, Knicks want to try to come out of this with a victory? No, there's obviously some keys that the Knicks it's got to take care of.
00:45:12
Number one. Take care of the basketball.
00:45:15
That's a big key.
00:45:17
Let me tell you why.
00:45:18
That's a big key to this game.
00:45:19

00:45:43
We see it, you guys for being here on a Thursday night, right? But we gotta take care of the basketball.
00:45:52
That is the first key to the game because we are averaging 18.
00:45:57
8 18 point to 18 point to be whatever it was.
00:46:01
Turnovers per game, right? That's not 18.
00:46:05
4 turnovers per game, right? That's not what that's.
00:46:08
That's not how you get it done.
00:46:10
Ladies and gentlemen, 80.
00:46:11
4 turnovers per game, Um, on only 18.
00:46:15
8 assists per game, then what makes it worse is that the Boston Celtics, the Celtics, are the best team in the league right now, even though it's a small sample size at points off turnovers.
00:46:32
You're the best team in the league at points, off turnovers, right? So we've got to take care of the basketball.
00:46:37
Because if we don't take care of the basketball and we're gonna have this Celtics player, we're gonna have the Celtics running up and down the floor. Scorn.
00:46:44
Right now, they're team that shoots 41.
00:46:46
4% 41.
00:46:47
1% from the field when we turn over the ball like we did first.
00:46:54
Then in the home opener, right in the home opener, we gave up 26 turnovers, 26 turnovers.
00:47:04
We had 17 assists.
00:47:06
If we do that again is gonna be a very similar result.
00:47:10
The Boston Celtics built up a 29 point lead in that game.
00:47:14
A lot of it had to do with us turning over the basketball.
00:47:17
We've gotta take care of the basketball, take care of the basketball is not let them get running, you know, through the first half of the game, in the first game.
00:47:27
We were We played them very well.
00:47:29
We had a lead.
00:47:32
We got sloppy.
00:47:34
You got sloppy.
00:47:36
We're gonna talk more about why we lost that first game.
00:47:39
As we continue to look at these keys to the game, the next key to the game, we've got to make it tough on Kemba Walker.
00:47:48
We're not gonna stop Kim a Walker.
00:47:50
You know that.
00:47:51
I know that, right? We're not gonna shut him down.
00:47:55
Right? But we could make it tough on him.
00:47:57
How do we make it tough on him? I'm gonna tell you how you make it tough on you sick Frank.
00:48:02
Mel Akina. Oh, no.
00:48:04
That's what I don't understand why he's not starting, frankly, Lucchino.
00:48:09
But if you're gonna make it tough on Kemba Walker, six Frank Nell Akina own, you know, how will she make it? Tough play allows will treat it.
00:48:20
That's another way to make it tough on Kimmel.
00:48:21
Walker.
00:48:22
Why am I saying that? Let's say you play lines Old tree here in the backcourt while Campbell woke us in the game and you play all J bury all frankness Latina in the backcourt while Campbell walkers in the game.
00:48:33
What do you think Kemba Walker is gonna guard? He's most likely going to guard online's old trip.
00:48:38
And then you know what you tell him I was trying to do.
00:48:40
You tell him I was trying to go at Kemba Walker.
00:48:45
Tell him to go, Adam.
00:48:48
Running off screens two months rear off the screens.
00:48:51
However, Kima Walker's garden running off screens make Kemba Walker fight through screens.
00:48:57
Make him battle on the defense event.
00:49:00
How does that make it tough on Campbell? Well, if you got treated going with Adam, he's gonna play defense.
00:49:07
But we're tired.
00:49:09
You got a running off screens.
00:49:12
You tired him out, and then you got Frank.
00:49:15
Oh, you know, you got people playing defense on him, strapping up defensively, and yeah, you're not going to stop him. But you be pesty.
00:49:24
You got guys me and passes your garden gnome.
00:49:27
94 feet.
00:49:30
You denying him the ball.
00:49:32
You not just let them catch the ball on the end bells.
00:49:36
You deny him make him work, for they could work for everything.
00:49:40
You make it tough on and make that to be a tough night.
00:49:42
Make sure he goes home sore.
00:49:45
Make sure he goes back into the locker room after the game and soaks in a nice cold tub of ice because he's sore.
00:49:54
His body hurts because you ran up through screens.
00:49:58
You put him to work.
00:50:00
That's what you do against Kemba Walker.
00:50:01
That's how you make it tough on him.
00:50:02
In my opinion, I could be wrong, but I think that's how you make it tough for him.
00:50:09
Make it tough, Otto.
00:50:10
And then hopefully, you get him to shoot a low percentage from the field.
00:50:14
Hopefully, in the fourth quarter.
00:50:16
He doesn't get hot, right, because you made it cell phone.
00:50:20
He's tired and I know he's in supreme shape.
00:50:23
All these guys, not all these guys.
00:50:25
But a lot of these guys were in supreme shape.
00:50:27
So when you say make, I'm tired, I Maybe you're not really gonna make him tired.
00:50:30
Their supreme shape.
00:50:32
That's what these guys are getting paid to do.
00:50:33
That's what they do.
00:50:36
Let me get tough on right.
00:50:39
Make that man work sick.
00:50:41
Frank Onem is sick.
00:50:43
Come on, Next play Randall and Morris and separate line ups.
00:50:51
I think this is a key.
00:50:53
The problem is I know it's not going to happen is gonna happen a little bit, but from the beginning, it's not going to happen.
00:51:00
Morris and Randall obviously earned the starting lineup.
00:51:03
We went over to starting lineups right there, obviously in the starting lineups.
00:51:09
It's a terrible pairing.
00:51:10
So far, it's not working.
00:51:12
It is not working.
00:51:13
Morris is not shooting well, playing well at the beginning, the season, not the way we see them do in preseason, right? He was super hot preseason, right? It was It was really hitting here with super hot in preseason.
00:51:26
Obviously, he's not doing that now right now.
00:51:30
But they're so similar.
00:51:33
It reminds me of when the Knicks got a Mari started Meyer and they had.
00:51:38
I'm sorry.
00:51:39
Yeah, when the Knicks got my start admire.
00:51:41
And then they brought in Carmelo Anthony.
00:51:44
And the big question was these.
00:51:46
You know, the big question was, how can they co exist? Because they occupy the same spots on the floor.
00:51:52
Now they do things a little bit differently.
00:51:56
Your Marcus Morris, you know, is isolates.
00:52:01
Maur doesn't really catch the ball on the run more.
00:52:03
He is applauding.
00:52:05
A plotting type of player is Marcus Morris.
00:52:11
He's a plodding type of guy.
00:52:14
Yeah, he's gonna catch the boy's gonna take this time.
00:52:16
He's got a measure up, this defender, much like mellow, much like the way Mellow used to do is a much better defended in Carmelo Anthony.
00:52:24
Obviously, you know, he's got a much more fiery attitude in Melo.
00:52:28
Um, you know, trying to rev up in and get a team moving and get the team going in those type of things.
00:52:36
But I don't see these guys.
00:52:38
They just do not co exist.
00:52:41
Well, in this lineup, Kevin knocks clearly to me.
00:52:45
Well will exist next to Randall.
00:52:47
Much better.
00:52:49
It shoots, You know it heavy. Knox.
00:52:54
It's not gonna go one on one the way that Morris does.
00:52:58
When Kevin Knox does decide so far this season, when he decides to go one on one, you know he's making his move quickly to the basket, right? He's not catching the ball and taking a whole bunch of setup dribbles.
00:53:11
He's catching the ball and going right.
00:53:13
Kevin Knots is good at coming off screens, you know is good at shooting off screens.
00:53:21
It works right now next to Julius Randle life and because Kevin Knox is shooting the ball better than Marcus Morris.
00:53:33
He's spreading the floor better so that Julius Randle has some more space while he's going to the basket while he's in late.
00:53:43
So I think you gotta play it.
00:53:44
Randall Morris.
00:53:45
A separate line ups The question is, and I said in the letter and the stream last night, actually, does David Fizdale have the Kohona is to sit down Marcus Morris? I don't know, man.
00:53:57
I really don't. I'm not sure.
00:53:59
Does he have the cojones to sit him down? I certainly hope so.
00:54:06
I certainly hope so, because you're gonna have to do it bar movement and let me take that back because I hit it twice.
00:54:15
You seeing what my next one is.
00:54:17
But ball movement, you know, I'm gonna say it again.
00:54:21
The beginning of the 1st 2/4 of the Gabor's Orlando, I thought, I see better ball movement.
00:54:26
We moved the ball better.
00:54:27
We want efficient, but we move the basketball better, even though I don't like having Wayne Ellington in the starting line with R.
00:54:34
J.
00:54:35
Berry and I much rather have Frank Miller Keenan up there in that R.
00:54:38
J Barrett do its thing.
00:54:39
I did see better ball.
00:54:41
I thought it was better ball more.
00:54:44
Okay.
00:54:46
Um I think, uh, something came out today.
00:54:49
Where the next have a goal of 300 passes in a game against Orlando.
00:54:54
They had 326 passes.
00:54:57
All right, so So the eclipse, their goal.
00:55:01
And, you know, 326 passes the eclipse to go.
00:55:08
We need ball movement, right? What? I what? I'm tired of seeing the only guillermo touched on it a little bit earlier.
00:55:15
I'm tired of seeing the aside the side east to west handoffs without going north or south and get into the basket.
00:55:23
You can't go East and west all the time when I get enough going East and West.
00:55:30
Now, we did a little bit better.
00:55:32
I'm gonna tell you something that I really thought we did better against the Orlando Magic.
00:55:37
I thought we caught Julius Randle.
00:55:40
Uh, we did a better job of finding Julius Randle on the move so that he could catch the ball One dribble, two dribbles and get to the basket, You know, without just posting them up.
00:55:50
Obviously we still did.
00:55:51
Supposed to moves with him family, distant post up in, and he did a better job kicking it out.
00:55:58
There's still some work to be done there, right? Still, a lot of work to be done.
00:56:04
But I really I do like that.
00:56:10
You know, they were able to find Randall on the move.
00:56:11
I think that's one of the keys to keeping those allowing him to score and keeping those turnovers down.
00:56:17
Or we need more ball movement.
00:56:19
We gotta get going towards the basket.
00:56:23
The ball moved faster as well, but we can't just keep passing east and west.
00:56:28
We got to get going to the basket.
00:56:30
I like to see some more pick and roll, which with ah, Miss Robinson, he was saying, Spread the floor out.
00:56:38
Let's get Mr Robinson out there with some guys that could spread the floor.
00:56:41
So if you got R.
00:56:42
J.
00:56:43
Barry and Mitchell Robinson, as have Kevin knocks Wayne Ellington and maybe Damien Dotson or, frankly, Latina doesn't really spread the floor.
00:56:50
But maybe even Frank Nell Akina, you know, since he does at least have decent for shooting the ball.
00:56:57
All right, old times gives you know by reporters Bobby Portis, Kevin Knox.
00:57:02
Wait. Ellington, Mitchell, Robinson.
00:57:06
All right, spread the floor.
00:57:07
So maybe we can get Mitchell Robinson on a couple of hoops.
00:57:10
A couple of runs to the basket.
00:57:12
I'll say that again.
00:57:13
R.
00:57:14
J. Barrett, Wayne Ellington.
00:57:16
Kevin knocks Bobby Porter's Mitchell Robinson.
00:57:20
Now you really do.
00:57:21
You got guys on the floor that could shoot.
00:57:22
Now you really open it up so that Mitchell Robinson could get some hoops to the basket.
00:57:26
Let's find a way to get him involved in the offense more because I'm gonna tell you what a lot of people a lot of players are leaving Mitchell Robinson, man.
00:57:36
And that's where some of the double teams come from.
00:57:38
They leave Mitchell Robinson because he's not too much of a threat on the offensive side of the floor.
00:57:43
He did hit it.
00:57:44
Ah, little, many jump shot in the last game, but it's not too much of a threat.
00:57:49
Besides, you know, maybe he catches a lob here. There.
00:57:53
Hey, get some offensive rebounds and puts them back and you know, loose balls and you know some of those type of things.
00:57:59
But if you try and find a way to incorporate him into the offense, you could make it more of a threat.
00:58:09
All right, I'd like to see that lineup.
00:58:11
I'm saying one more time.
00:58:12
R.
00:58:13
J.
00:58:14
Barrett Wayne Ellington said that.
00:58:15
So you use it right now, uh, having Knox, Bobby Portis.
00:58:20
Mitchell Robinson got shooters that will allow Mr Robinson to run to the basket and also allow R.
00:58:29
J. Barrett to penetrate to the basket.
00:58:31
And then, if you want to substitute Wayne Ellington, a lot of trouble for Wayne Ellington and also open up lanes for Wayne for lots of clear to get to the basket.
00:58:41
Think about it.
00:58:42
That's all it is.
00:58:43
If you listen.
00:58:44
If you look and think about it next, no hero ball.
00:58:49
If we're fortunate enough and we play well enough to get his game down to, you know, the fourth quarter, well, well, we're in the game.
00:58:56
Still, we got to stay away from the hero ball.
00:59:01
The fourth corner of that Orlando Gay.
00:59:03
We went seven minutes without Hera pro before.
00:59:16
We don't need it.
00:59:19
Everybody put reporters got screamed at by fizz for playing hero ball.
00:59:24
You know, I'm saying Come on, guys, to play their game, we need heroes We just need to play basketball, use each other.
00:59:32
We have enough players on this team who could be scoring threats that if we use each other without trying to be a hero, you could be effective.
00:59:44
We could be effective down the stretch.
00:59:46
We don't need the hero ball.
00:59:47
Ladies and gentlemen, we don't need a big shout out to sensational vase.
00:59:51
Thank you for the Super Chat, my friend.
00:59:52
I appreciate you cut out the hero ball, folks and then rebound the basketball.
00:59:57
The Boston Celtics shoot 41.
00:59:58
1% from the field.
01:00:01
We got a rebound, the ball, the Knicks.
01:00:04
Right now, I believe they're in the top three and points in second chance points, right? If we're gonna be, Ah, low percentage shooting team that we better be able to get offensive rebounds so that we can score on those second chance points, right? But if we're gonna play when we play teams like the Boston Celtics, who shoot 41.
01:00:25
1% from the field right now, we better rebound the basketball.
01:00:31
We cannot allow them to get second chance points and score off a second chance points.
01:00:38
We do that. We're gonna lose the game.
01:00:41
All right, so we've got a rebound, that basketball.
01:00:45
We've been doing a good job so far this season, rebounding the ball.
01:00:48
We've got to continue to rebound the basketball.
01:00:53
It's getting us rebound, the basketball, Let's get out and try to run, See if we can get some early baskets, see what we could do in transition.
01:00:59
We haven't done much in transition.
01:01:01
We haven't really gotten early baskets.
01:01:02
As a matter of fact, we've been playing a slow basketball game, right.
01:01:08
We've been playing a slow basketball game, and you would think that we have.
01:01:12
You know, we got guys that could rebound the ball.
01:01:16
Right now, we don't have we don't have ever paying.
01:01:19
And then the Smith Jr on the floor, obviously, because of, you know, personal situations with venison, junior hamstring injury with elephant painting, you know, so pushing the ball, getting the ball up the floor, trying to get easy baskets may not be in the cards right now, because right now, lucky no, you know what you know.
01:01:42
He doesn't push the ball like that.
01:01:44
R.
01:01:45
J Barry, it's, you know, he's not really the guy that's gonna push the ball like that.
01:01:52
You know what I'm saying? So and then, you know, we tried it with Julius Randle.
01:01:57
Julius Randle kind of slows it.
01:01:59
Oppa's well, you know.
01:02:00
So there's not a lot of pushing from Julius Randle.
01:02:03
Look, you don't gotta dribble the ball up to push the ball up.
01:02:08
You can't pass it up.
01:02:10
It is possible.
01:02:11
It's a matter of fact.
01:02:12
It is the best way to do it.
01:02:15
Passed the ball.
01:02:16
Oh, get the rebound.
01:02:18
Let's outlet it.
01:02:19
Let's get the ball up.
01:02:20
Let's try to beat the defense of the floor, see if we can get some easy buckets.
01:02:23
We scored 83 points against the Orlando Magic.
01:02:26
We've gotta find ways to muster up points because we're not going to win by scoring 83 points.
01:02:32
It's not gonna happen right now.
01:02:34
We average 100 points per game.
01:02:37
You're not gonna win in this league today, averaging 100 points per game unless you've got the most stifling defense in the league.
01:02:46
You went on, went by averaging 100 points of the game.
01:02:48
You could only give up 95 points per game, right? We gave up 109 points per game.
01:02:52
This will be average right now.
01:02:58
So we gotta find ways to get this office going.
01:02:59
Which is the reason why I'm not understanding why Alonso Trailer is not in the game, folks.
01:03:07
Ice True, not playing.
01:03:10
I don't know.
01:03:11
I'll keep asking this question until I see this kid on the floor does.
01:03:15
He could get buckets, he can score.
01:03:18
And when you score 83 points in a game, you need someone who can score the ball for you and inefficient clip and everything that you want to say about him.
01:03:32
Maybe troubling too much, not being able to shoot off the, you know, Can't you shoot whatever.
01:03:37
Okay, I get it.
01:03:38
Things that he has to work on, I understand it.
01:03:40
I believe it, too.
01:03:41
It's gotta work on those things, the more he could catch a shoot. Come on, screens.
01:03:45
You know, supper things the more effective player is gonna be.
01:03:49
But at the moment, he's one of the best score was we had, especially with no Dennis Smith Jr on out about there.
01:03:57
What was it really scoring anyway? No Dennis Smith Jr.
01:03:59
No Albert paying to get to the Cup, but Allie's old.
01:04:03
You can get to the cup from that guard spot.
01:04:06
You can get there.
01:04:07
He could get eaten, get the bump.
01:04:11
He can absorb the bump and still score and go to the line.
01:04:18
But that man in the game fears.
01:04:20
Come on, man, think come office and stop trying to be fancy with the coaching and over coaching, it's Costa who coached their talent that you have will be successful, brother posted the talent that you have.

01:06:04
Case way. I'm coming towards you, my man.
01:06:06
Want to talk to your case? Wait.
01:06:07
Tell me, How can we beat Boston.
01:06:13
All right.
01:06:14
Case Wait I'm gonna do right now is what's up with your brother.
01:06:20
What? So somebody doing then? I'm chilling, man.
01:06:22
How are you? I'm chilling. Chilling, ma'am.
01:06:25
A little, a little, uh, down.
01:06:27
And I was actually at that magic game, uh, yesterday, you know.
01:06:31
So I watched the whole thing.
01:06:33
I watched the l that we just talked.
01:06:35
But, you know, um, to get on the Boston? No.
01:06:39
Is this we got to play defense, man, because, you know, we seem to have a lot of, ah, problems scoring, you know? I mean, we have a lot of Ah, it seems like nobody understands has an established role.
01:06:50
So when you when you don't have establishment, you've got a lot of confusion on off sense of offensive side, but and we have to have better rotations.
01:06:56
Why? Why's Landel chair? Maybe you can probably.
01:07:00
But it might get back up to back up one spot if you're gonna pull in a dame.
01:07:04
Got you know, if you you know me, another thing is said that get mention Robinson more involved men.
01:07:11
You know, this is many times that I see him open and no one was looking at him or when they give him a pass, you know, he's a seven footer.
01:07:17
You know, you've given him a balance back to see the play.
01:07:19
They gave him a bounce pass, You know me.
01:07:21
And of course, they say, you know, that was a turnover.
01:07:24
You know, you got to give a player like that ball you know me in his chest area or buck his shoulders.
01:07:29
This this just how that's gonna work, man, I don't know.
01:07:32
I don't understand that.
01:07:33
But, I mean, the answer to your question is we have to play defense.
01:07:38
If we don't play defense, that's it is done.
01:07:41
Yeah. Yeah, I'm with you, bro.
01:07:43
I figure they're definitely we gotta play that defense.
01:07:46
Uh, and I did see someone saying the chat by taking calls.
01:07:49
Yes.
01:07:50
You could call 85164 or 5 to 246 I will take a couple of calls.
01:07:55
All right, I'll take a couple of calls.
01:07:56
516452246 Tell me how we beat the Boston Celtics tomorrow night.
01:08:02
All right.
01:08:03
Um, okay.
01:08:07
I don't know, case Wait, man is not gonna be easy, man.
01:08:09
It's not gonna be easy.
01:08:11
And I think we probably expected the next to maybe go one of five to begin the season.
01:08:18
I was hoping that we could be at least two and three, but, you know, are, you know, two and four or, you know, somewhere around there, um, three and young 33? I don't know, but I think we probably expect.
01:08:34
Listen, we beat the team that was supposed to be in Chicago.
01:08:38
Every other team that we've played is a potential playoff team you're in.
01:08:42
You can at least look at that.
01:08:44
A potential playoff team, Uh, on alone.
01:08:48
Did we expect that the Knicks were gonna beat these teams, Especially this early in the season? You know, I don't know, but the facts are, we could have.
01:08:59
And if we did some of the right things done a stretch, we would have, you know? No.
01:09:06
You see, uh, this is named Margie Barrett.
01:09:09
You know, he started to slow down because the defense of Keenan on him, you know, because we don't have enough offense coming from from anyone else.
01:09:16
Yes.
01:09:17
So he's gonna be easier targets, you know, Pay attention to And that's just the reason why I go back into what you said.
01:09:22
You gotta put tray on the floor.
01:09:24
We need more offense, right? No. Stone.
01:09:29
Yeah.
01:09:30
Them 20 point games are going to start bringing it down. 10.
01:09:32
He's not gonna be able to score as much and no doubt, man.
01:09:35
All right, let me let me gmo.
01:09:38
I want to find out from you trying to get this thing up to Kate. Man, we have 1.8.
01:09:42
Almost one point.
01:09:43
Now.
01:09:44
We see if we can get it up to Kay before I get out of here.
01:09:45
But I got to get out of his suit.
01:09:48
Am Oh, God, man, Tell me what you think, man.
01:09:50
How do we How are we gonna beat Boston? How we gonna be boss o or if we're gonna beat him? How How can we not if how can we? While the best way to be Boston is to again to play the perimeter of frilly fairly deep, right? Like you have to whatever smaller Rose gonna try to do in the perimeter, they just trying to do it to essentially a guys mostly open shots.
01:10:14
So I know Randall's not going to do it, but it be nice if he actually steps up.
01:10:19
Ah, where? You know, he sees the shooter coming off member walk on offense and in his barrel him.
01:11:37
You know, it shouldn't be a bunch of guys trying to go ice on him. It doesn't make sense.
01:11:40
Try to get to the weaknesses.
01:11:41
They don't have a good front court.
01:11:42
Should be right.
01:11:43
That pick and roll, I would say having a fall festival.
01:11:46
Why even mention that fizzle? Doesn't know that is Ah, but since you have the guy's like a barrette And, like, the Celtics get their best guys into foul trouble. The best score.
01:12:05
Excuse me? The valuable.
01:12:06
Yeah.
01:12:07
Now I hate you, man.
01:12:08
I all right, Well, look, maybe I'm gonna come to you, man.
01:12:12
And then I didn't get a chance to take any phone calls.
01:12:14
And you're part of it is, you know, I mean, like, like some people.
01:12:17
I see it's buffering a little bit.
01:12:19
You know, the hotel internet is done pretty well tonight.
01:12:22
You know, saying he's done pretty well tonight.
01:12:24
I didn't see someone calling.
01:12:25
Tony Crow was trying to call in of you.
01:12:28
Tony. crew, if you can get in one more time.
01:12:30
516452246 But if not, I'm gonna take needs call.
01:12:34
We're gonna wrap it up, man.
01:12:36
Need God, man.
01:12:39
I mean, like, Guillermo said, And it's gonna start with defense first.
01:12:42
I mean, the Knicks have gotta lock down.
01:12:45
I mean, if you watch the game last year, coming last box game fix played really good defense on the ball.
01:12:52
It just The problem is they have lapses.
01:12:54
They have lapses, and it hurts us.
01:12:57
You know, we give up on open three, we give up a layup in sight.
01:13:01
I mean, but for the most part, we played really good defense.
01:13:04
That's Orlando.
01:13:05
So you're going to bring that team defense against the Celtics, second of all, and not have turnovers a lot of turnover because Boston and feeds off those turnovers they love to run.
01:13:15
When, when? When, when teams turn over the ball.
01:13:18
Um, and this lim second chance points.
01:13:24
Man, I really feel like the Knicks are gonna have to get on the board and hold Boston toe.
01:13:29
One shot, if they can do that consistently, the Knicks have a chance, but I just don't see it happening.
01:13:37
Um, I think Boston Boston played, uh, the bucks last yesterday.
01:13:42
And like I said, man, Hey, really good game.
01:13:54
Um, it's gonna be Yeah, actually.
