00:01:23
Nick's family was popping Is your boy.
00:01:26
We saw the Knicks lose a close one to the Denver Nuggets last night.
00:01:33
It snapped a losing streak, but they're gonna look to restart.
00:01:36
The losing streak bursts the Atlanta Hawks tomorrow night.
00:01:40
So let's talk about it.
00:01:55
Ladies and gentlemen, we're going to get right to the point today.
00:02:00
Jumped right on into it.
00:02:02
The Knicks play the Atlanta Hawks tomorrow night at 7 30 at Madison Square Garden.
00:02:08
Hey, look, the Knicks played the Hawks in preseason, and they lost 100 to 96.
00:02:15
We're gonna take a look at that game, not the game.
00:02:18
But we're gonna look at some of those stats from that game, which was, you know, two months ago whenever it waas.
00:02:29
You guys remember Vince Carter had a night at the Garden, even though it was pre season.
00:02:35
He had a night at the Garden.
00:02:36
It was killing the Knicks.
00:02:40
But let's take a look at this game.
00:02:45
See if the Knicks can restart their streak playing one of the week of teams in the league.
00:02:51
The Knicks head Coats.
00:02:53
It's Mike Miller in term head coach, and so far under Mike Miller, they? They've played well.
00:03:02
They're 23.
00:03:04
If the two or three have been blown out one time by the Portland Trail Blazers, all of the games have been down to the wire so we could take something from net.
00:03:19
The Atlanta Hawks had coaches.
00:03:20
Lloyd peers for the Knicks.
00:03:24
The projected starters of frankly, Latina at point guard R.
00:03:28
J.
00:03:29
Barrett at shooting guard aren't those two could be switched around.
00:03:31
It could be R. J.
00:03:32
Bear that point guard in front millikin at shooting guard, where whatever they decide the list, um, doesn't really matter much.
00:03:40
Market s'mores at small forward Julius Randle.
00:03:42
Why Power forward and tides.
00:03:44
Gibson That center Reggie Bullock is out with a neck.
00:03:47
Wayne Ellington with a sore left Achilles with the Atlanta Hawks.
00:03:54
Trade Young.
00:03:55
He started at point guard pretty much knew that Kevin Hueter is that shoot guard DeAndre Hunter, that small forward Jabari Parker at power forward and Jamie Jones at center.
00:04:07
And I'm gonna tell you what I liked what I saw in the preseason of the Andre Hunter when the Knicks played the Atlanta Hawks.
00:04:17
I thought he played very well, and I think we need to watch out for this guy tomorrow night, Okay? I like the R J. Answer.
00:04:30
I like what he brings to the game is the defense of guy, but it was showing a good midrange game when we played against him in the preseason.
00:04:38
Of course, that's the preseason.
00:04:40
This is the regular season.
00:04:41
Things changed a lot.
00:04:44
Things changed a lot.
00:04:47
Let's take a look at some of the stats behind a game, of course.
00:04:52
The Nexus 6 to 21 on the season.
00:04:54
So the Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks have a one game losing streak.
00:04:58
They just came off of a two game winning streak.
00:05:01
Then he lost last night to the Denver Nuggets, a game in which they had a lead.
00:05:08
It would doubt 20.
00:05:09
They came back, took the lead in the fourth quarter, but they couldn't finish it out.
00:05:14
There were held scoreless, the last one out scoreless, but they were outscored 13 and three in the last four minutes and 30 seconds of the game, or 13 to 5 the last four minutes and 30 seconds of the game.
00:05:26
And when a good three minutes or so without scoring Atlanta Hawks during a four game losing streak.
00:05:31
They lost last night to the Los Angeles Lakers.
00:05:36
The Knicks average 101.
00:05:37
2 points per game.
00:05:40
They give up 111.
00:05:41
1 points per game.
00:05:43
They shoot 42.
00:05:44
2% from the field, 34.
00:05:46
4% from three in the average 45.
00:05:48
3 rebounds per game.
00:05:50
They also averaged 20.
00:05:51
1 assists per game in 14.
00:05:53
6 turnovers per game.
00:05:56
The next offensive rating is one of 2.
00:05:57
6 that study it in the league, and the defense of Raining is 1 12.
00:06:02
6 That's 25th in the league.
00:06:05
But look, they're playing a team that's just not that good, either.
00:06:11
Again, the Hawks losing streak is that four they averaged 108.
00:06:15
1 points per game.
00:06:19
They give up 117.
00:06:20
8 points per game.
00:06:23
They shoot 44.
00:06:24
9% from the field, 33.
00:06:25
9% from three, the average 42.
00:06:29
1 rebounds per game, 23.
00:06:31
6 assists per game and 17.
00:06:34
5 turnovers per game.
00:06:36
The offensive rating rating is 104.
00:06:37
4 that's 26th in the league and their defense of rating is 1 13.
00:06:42
6 That's 27th in the league.
00:06:49
This is a team, Ladies and gentlemen, if you're going to restart a street, you can restart streak with these guys and they're gonna be at home.
00:06:58
But there's a guy we gotta watch out for. Four.
00:07:00
Not far for that.
00:07:02
Watch out, Betray young ladies and gentlemen.
00:07:05
So frightening.
00:07:06
Makena, you've got to be on your job tomorrow night.
00:07:10
So young.
00:07:11
He's 61 £180 averaging 27.
00:07:16
8 points per game this season.
00:07:18
Four points rebounds, 8.
00:07:19
5 assists you have.
00:07:21
It's just 1.
00:07:22
2 steals per game.
00:07:25
He shoots 44.
00:07:26
3% from the field in 36.
00:07:27
8% from three.
00:07:31
He is a guy that you gotta defend it.
00:07:33
We're gonna talk about how to defend it.
00:07:37
Frightening looking at 67 £200 guard forward, he averaged 6.
00:07:41
1 points per game, two point two rebounds per game, 3.
00:07:45
1 assists of 1.
00:07:46
4 steals per game.
00:07:47
Theseus, 38.
00:07:48
2% from the field and 32.
00:07:50
8% from three.
00:07:53
Let's talk about this matchup because the last thing that we need is for Trey Young to get loose against us.
00:08:05
Okay, that's the last thing that we need.
00:08:07
We don't need that to happen, but it can happen if you remember from the last game from the preseason game.
00:08:16
The Hogs.
00:08:18
They run straight, Young off of a lot of screens.
00:08:22
They said a lot of screens for the guy, so it's gonna be important, vitally important that we don't switch as much.
00:08:29
We let Frank Miller can, frankly looking to fight over the screens, But it's what we got to do.
00:08:36
We need for our big made to kind of heads just a little bit right, because they're going to set a lot of screens, betray Young.
00:08:47
It's gonna be impossible for Frank Miller Kina to fight over every single screen and be there.
00:08:54
Bam on a dime.
00:08:56
So our big men, you're gonna have to do a good job Frightening.
00:08:59
Looking to get the screen.
00:09:01
You hedge your hedge a little bit.
00:09:04
Just enough to slow up to a young as Frank nearly Kino recovers.
00:09:09
Elfrid Payton is well, all right.
00:09:13
And then you get back to your guys and then you need the backside guys to help out as well.
00:09:20
All right, so they say Tarts.
00:09:23
Gibson is defending.
00:09:24
Whoever is screening for trade Young time ships is gonna help out just a little bit.
00:09:31
And as time's Gibson is helping out, somebody else on the backside is gonna slide over and help out Taj Gibson.
00:09:39
So that times Gibsons Man doesn't get the pass off the role or the value.
00:09:46
And then once Latina recovers what she's got to do quickly because if not trying, Younger's gonna find somebody he's averaging like eight assists per game.
00:09:56
Once Frank nearly Kina recovers Gibson coming couples to his man and that person coming covers to that man, the person who helped out Charles Gibson can recover to that man I saw.
00:10:07
It's really got to be a team defense on a string so that we do not let Trey Young pick us apart.
00:10:14
But we need Frank Miller Keenan to be tight on Trey Young because if he's not tight entree young, he's good.
00:10:20
He'll start getting loose from three.
00:10:22
If he starts getting loose from three, we're gonna be in trouble is that it's gonna really loosen up that dif the offense or loosen up the defense so that they could get a lot of penetration and get in the lane.
00:10:35
They all righty score a lot of points in the paint.
00:10:40
That's something we're gonna talk about in our keys to the game.
00:10:43
But this is definitely a key matchup.
00:10:46
Frankly, Latina first tray Young.
00:10:49
It's a very key matchup and, frankly looking has got to be on his job.
00:10:53
When L for Peyton gets in the game, he's got to be on his job.
00:10:56
I do not expect to see Dennis made junior much tomorrow night.
00:11:03
We haven't seen him in two games.
00:11:05
I don't expect him to come in and play tomorrow night when we're facing the guard like trade Young, who could be explosive.
00:11:17
So that's my key matchup for this game.
00:11:22
Ladies and gentlemen, that's my key matchup.
00:11:26
Now let's talk about some of the keys of the game, some of the keys to this game.
00:11:32
As soon as I get it back up on my screen, I'm going to get to the keys to the game.
00:11:36
Here we go.
00:11:37
Keys to the game.
00:11:38
Ladies and gentlemen, um, the first key to this game.
00:11:42
Obviously, let's continue to bring the energy.
00:11:45
We were playing with energy.
00:11:47
We got to continue to bring that energy, all right.
00:11:50
It's been good so far.
00:11:53
It's been good.
00:11:54
We got to continue to bring it.
00:11:58
It seemed to bring it all right.
00:12:01
My next key to the game.
00:12:04
Make it hard on Trey Young.
00:12:06
We were just talking about how Trey Young they they run Trey Young off of a lot of screens, right? I mean, he uses to three screens every possession, one of the ways we've seen it happen.
00:12:23
Tow us.
00:12:25
The other day against Golden State, every single time a screener came for Frank Miller Kino Elford paying in the second half of the game.
00:12:32
This is every time a screener came, the person was defending.
00:12:36
The screener would trap.
00:12:40
Now, when they trapped us, we turned the ball over.
00:12:45
We're not gonna expect trading on the turn the ball over, but he'll probably be able to pass out of the trap.
00:12:51
It's okay.
00:12:52
You know what? He's averaged 28 points per game.
00:12:55
Basically, let him pass out of the trap to see if somebody else could be this.
00:12:59
Jabari Parker averages 16 points per game.
00:13:02
Collins.
00:13:03
I think he averages 17 points per game and see if those guys can get 35 points to something, see what they do.
00:13:11
He's obviously the most prolific player that they had and see if we can trap him up.
00:13:16
He's he's 61 You got a guy frankly, located at 67 even Elford paying.
00:13:23
If he's got him in 64 got three inches in height on him.
00:13:30
I said, Let's see if we could trap Trey Young.
00:13:32
We've got to protect the paint as well.
00:13:35
Okay, the Hawks.
00:13:37
They score 52.
00:13:38
4 points per game in the paint.
00:13:40
That's fourth in the league.
00:13:43
We've got to do a good job protecting the paint.
00:13:46
Ladies and gentlemen, we don't do a good job protecting the paint, and we're gonna be in trouble playing against these guys.
00:13:53
I am one of the reasons why they score so many points in the paint.
00:13:55
It's probably because it's very young, all right.
00:14:00
Trey Young does a good job getting in the paint off for the many screens that they give for him.
00:14:07
Right? Nicotine is screened for this guy screen for this cry scream for this guy, and he gets into the paint so young and the When we played them in the off season Ah, in the preseason, he had 23 points, man.
00:14:22
In fact, I bring this on over so you guys can check out to see what I'm looking at as a realty.
00:14:29
All right.
00:14:30
Try.
00:14:31
Young had 23 points the last game we played him.
00:14:32
And yes, that game was in.
00:14:34
Um, that game was during Ah, it was a pre season game, but whatever.
00:14:40
Jae Young had 23 points, all right? He had nine assists.
00:14:50
We allow these guys we allowed trying, you know, to get loose on us and get assists and get in the paint.
00:14:59
We allowed trade young to get in the paint.
00:15:01
We allowed trade young to come off the screens, get in the paint and create s So we really got a limit.
00:15:09
These guys getting in the paint part of that is going to be trapping.
00:15:13
Trained young, keeping him out of the paint, not identified.
00:15:17
The Adre 100.
00:15:18
Jabari Parker. John Collins.
00:15:20
I don't think John Collins played against us the last time we played.
00:15:27
So we're going to see We're gonna see how that goes.
00:15:32
Keeping that guy out paint is not gonna be easy.
00:15:34
Task.
00:15:36
The next key to the game, ladies and gentlemen, is to win the rebounding battle.
00:15:43
We lost the rebounding battle to these guys.
00:15:46
Ah, I don't know. Bye.
00:15:48
13 14 rebounds.
00:15:49
Last time it was 57.
00:15:51
40 something.
00:15:52
Something like that.
00:15:53
We spared a winner rebounding battle.
00:15:55
We should be close.
00:15:56
We should never lose the rebounding battle by double digits.
00:15:59
We see either win the rebounding battle.
00:16:00
Or if we do, if another team gets more rebounds, it's, you know, one or two rebounds, three rebounds or something like that, which he never get killed on the boards.
00:16:10
We got enough.
00:16:11
Rebound is we should not get killed on the boards.
00:16:16
We need a wit already.
00:16:18
Just I just said when the rebounding battle, we need to keep a starter in with the bench.
00:16:25
I think this is key and not just for this game, but for every game that we play.
00:16:32
We do not have a team that's good enough tohave our entire bench on the floor and think that we're gonna win If you see if you watch last night's game against the Nuggets, when the bench came in game with game with the trash and Nuggets took a huge lead.
00:16:55
We brought it back when we we put our starters back in the game, all right.
00:17:02
In the second half, you see that Mike Miller always kept somebody in the game.
00:17:05
Marcus Morris.
00:17:06
Julius Randle always kept one of those guys in the game.
00:17:09
This is what we have to do.
00:17:11
I don't think you can depend on our bench to be productive on a regular basis.
00:17:18
It's gonna be some nights.
00:17:19
They are some nights there nights and you see that bench is getting shortened.
00:17:24
Last night, Mike Miller played nine guys.
00:17:29
No, no, no allies will trade.
00:17:31
No Dennis Smith, Jr.
00:17:32
You played nine guys.
00:17:34
Don't be a surprise that that ***** stays at nine guys and he always has one of those starters in the game.
00:17:45
I think from now on we need to keep one of our starters in the game.
00:17:50
Whether it is.
00:17:51
If someone's having a really good game, keep him in the game.
00:17:53
Of course you're gonna sell him out every once in a while because you got to do that.
00:17:56
This guy's got to get a break.
00:17:59
Keep somebody in the game there.
00:18:01
We need ball movement, ball movement and attack the paint.
00:18:03
Ladies and gentlemen, while the Hawks score 52.
00:18:07
4 points per game in the paint, they give up 51.
00:18:10
9 points per game in the paint s so we could score against these guys and the paint.
00:18:19
We got to utilize that right? We're gonna have bigger guards to Trey Young, maybe see if we can get Frank Millikin in a post every once in a while.
00:18:28
See if you could do something out of post.
00:18:30
Maybe he can shoot over top of train.
00:18:32
Young. Frighteningly.
00:18:33
Tina, by the way, had 13 points last night.
00:18:37
Might score them.
00:18:38
All of them just about in the first half.
00:18:40
But, hey, at their two points, I see we could take advantage.
00:18:44
Some guys in the paint, we shoot a lot of mid range jump shots.
00:18:47
The Knicks do Marcus Morris use a lot of mid range jump shots.
00:18:50
Julius Randle.
00:18:52
You know he gets to the cup, but sometimes you choose mid range jump shots.
00:18:55
Frank Miller, keen on most of his shots.
00:18:57
That made me jump shots.
00:18:59
R.
00:19:00
J.
00:19:01
Barrett sometimes pulls too many mid range jump shots, although he does go to the basket, try to bully himself in.
00:19:05
That's usually when he has success, so we need to attack the paint.
00:19:11
We need to move the ball, people move it and attack the paint, All right, also, you know these guys are, I think, 23rd in the league and allowing other teams to score on the break.
00:19:26
So we need to try to score in transition.
00:19:27
We could get the ball out the net, pushed it up the floor.
00:19:31
Get down Hill on Mike Miller talks about playing downhill.
00:19:34
Get downhill.
00:19:35
I don't know.
00:19:36
Maybe you do play Dennis Smith Jr a little bit.
00:19:38
I don't think he's gonna because of defensively, you know, he doesn't bring it.
00:19:42
And I think Mike Miller is found a comfort zone with Frank Miller, Kane and L for paving the way that he's using him.
00:19:48
So there's a lot of questions about Dennis Smith Jr.
00:19:52
Listen, Dennis Smith Jr was a happy with what was taking place in Dallas.
00:19:56
How is this going to go over with then the Smith Jr and his team.
00:19:59
I don't know.
00:20:00
Bottom line is Dennis, we're juniors.
00:20:02
Gotta bring it on both ends of the floor.
00:20:04
But you know what? We'll keep.
00:20:06
We'll keep watching that.
00:20:07
See how that's gonna go over.
00:20:11
But we gotta move the ball and attack the paint.
00:20:13
Ladies and gentlemen, those are my keys to the game.
00:20:16
That's my breakdown in the game.
00:20:17
I do it once more later on just before I get off, because I got about 15 20 more minutes and I'm gonna take a couple of phone calls.
00:20:24
Do what you guys thinking.
00:20:26
All right, Bowler.
00:20:27
You allow with nothing but Nets was popping a are you doing this? Is Kevin from playing from the jersey.
00:20:34
How you feeling That I'm good, man.
00:20:35
How are you? A pretty pretty good.
00:20:39
You know, I just want to talk about last night's game and, um what, you and, um um Gilmore and everybody was talking about that.
00:20:48
About the trade was last night.
00:20:51
Yo, I'm seeing a lot of positive, um, on the mike Miller.
00:20:57
Um, just the overall attitude of the team.
00:21:01
You haven't really seen that.
00:21:03
You know all season.
00:21:05
Um, I like the way Franken, Alfred a plane as far as the point guard, Um, it was good to see Frank hitting shots yesterday.
00:21:13
I mean, last night, Um, think Randall, along with a lot of the other ones, are just playing with a lot of more spirit control.
00:21:22
Elect waiting.
00:21:23
Mike Miller's, you know, calm the, um, time outs at, you know, at certain junctures.
00:21:28
And, um, it's just a different, you know, feel that I'm seeing is not a lot of switching on defense.
00:21:34
Um, and I think that was a lot of times they were killing field.
00:21:39
The one thing I will say last night in that game, um, in the first half, I think sometimes, um, Portis, who I like, gets to, um, to wrapped up defensively and, um what I mean, defensively, he loses a man at times, I think joined that stretch.
00:22:00
Um, he lost his man a lot.
00:22:01
And I think that's reason why you know, they was going up 20.
00:22:04
What? What do you think of that? Ah, you know, I have to really go back and look at the game and see, you know, you know, you know, breaking down and really just watch Julius Randle.
00:22:15
Um, I think for the most part, though, when they went up 20 that bench came into the game.
00:22:23
And, you know, when the bench came into the game from the about two minutes 32 or three minutes left in this in the first quarter till about nine minutes or so in the second quarter.
00:22:36
That's when you see the Nuggets really pushed that lead up.
00:22:40
You know, I don't know the bench in the job, right? And I think that, um, Portis was on, you know, on that second unit, you know, during those times and everything.
00:22:50
And, um, I just saw him losing his man a lot.
00:22:54
And, you know, I mean, it's just a nitpick, but, you know, overall, it's just a different field with this, Um, it is next team right now, and I know it's only, you know, I guess what? Five games under? Um, Mike Miller.
00:23:09
Um, I just like the result that you know, really, you know, happening.
00:23:14
And, um and as far as the trade, I agree with you and Gil Mona and everybody about you no more.
00:23:22
Um, I for one.
00:23:24
I was against trading them But what job? Saying I could see where y'all coming from.
00:23:29
I don't mind him, you know, trading him before, you know, especially to that clippers trade.
00:23:35
I wouldn't mind that happening.
00:23:37
And, um, I just think that event like him, the young, the young players really effect and can really learn from him.
00:23:48
So that's reason why I would want him, You know, a part that's Knicks organization again.
00:23:54
It comes to the contracts and everything, but, um, you know how much he's gonna be asking for.
00:23:59
So, um, but I could see where y'all coming from, and I won't mind him, you know, just so that he comes, you know, with the understanding that you know, he comes back next year and everything but again, it all depends on you know how much money he's gonna be asking for.
00:24:14
My question is, I heard a lot about you.
00:24:17
No one to trade Alonso Trias.
00:24:19
Well, my concern what that is I don't want him to go to another team.
00:24:23
He turned out to be like another.
00:24:24
You know, Williams, You know when that team just let him Do you know what he does and everything.
00:24:30
And it comes back to bite us.
00:24:31
That's my only, um, only fair.
00:24:34
What will you say to that? Yeah, um, you know, it's It's I don't know what to think about what's happening with Alonso trade.
00:24:43
He was He was a darling of the team last year.
00:24:46
Now it's like, you know, you don't hear from him or anything about his playing time.
00:24:52
He's making $3.
00:24:53
3 million this year, you know? Um, yeah, he's a restricted free.
00:24:58
You think that, You know? I mean, I don't know what it is with what It was physical, but I was hoping that, um, like, you know, find some minutes for him.
00:25:09
Everything, Um, as much as we say, Oh, you gotta play.
00:25:13
You know, defense, defense.
00:25:16
Um, I think he just needs, you know, he's the time so you can play defense anything.
00:25:21
But, um I just like one.
00:25:24
Want to see him in there just to see? I mean, we already know.
00:25:28
Unfortunately, I hate to say this, but we already know what we're getting out of, uh, Smith, Jr.
00:25:34
You might You might have to be, You know that, Um uh, the point guard that's playing right now for Golden State.
00:25:43
D'Angelo Russell is when he was first with the Lakers, you know, he wasn't, you know, doing so well.
00:25:48
And then he comes over to ah, Brooklyn.
00:25:51
And his career is, like, told you revitalized.
00:25:55
Maybe the estate that has to happen to him as well.
00:25:58
You know, you don't you don't know, but I mean, you're clear.
00:26:03
He just gets you buckets all the time, So, yeah, I mean, you know, I think I could say, you know, the only thing I could say Ah is it tells a story when you have Wayne Ellington out, right? You know? So you're down a guard and then last night and let me pull this up just so I could be sure.
00:26:29
Namie dots and only played six minutes last night.
00:26:34
Right? So it tells a story when you have one guard out and then Jamie Dotson on Lee play six minutes and Dennis with junior in a lot of trade who are both healthy.
00:26:46
Well, actually, I'm sorry, Alonso.
00:26:47
Old traer is not healthy.
00:26:49
He's dealing with a concussion protocol.
00:26:51
So it tells a story about Dennis Smith Jr.
00:26:53
We'll see what happens when Alonzo Trick gets back um, Mom, Dad? Concussion protocol.
00:27:00
Right.
00:27:01
But I want it.
00:27:02
I'm sorry.
00:27:03
How long is that? Uh, confession protocol.
00:27:05
Um, how long's it take a man? It could take from a week to two or three weeks.
00:27:11
Man, it depends on if you continue to have symptoms.
00:27:14
You know, I guess him and I forgot who it was.
00:27:16
Him and somebody smashed heads during practice, and, you know, so he's dealing with a concussion right now.
00:27:23
Okay.
00:27:24
All right.
00:27:25
So we'll see. We'll see when he gets back.
00:27:27
How? How Mike Miller uses him.
00:27:31
Okay.
00:27:32
All right.
00:27:33
Look, like I said, I I just don't want that, you know, a guy that we had, You know, um, you go somewhere else and just, you know, this goes ballistic, and then he has us in, you know, in the rear back mirror, like, yeah, I'm gonna, you know, make sure I, you know, take it to this team because they gave up on me and everything, but again, that's like that with you know what? All players know anything.
00:27:54
So that's hey, man, about it.
00:27:58
All right, man.
00:27:59
Hey, I appreciate the call and no problem again.
00:28:02
The same Steve now I know that I have been taking it easy.
00:28:11
And I'll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, it definitely tells a story when Dennis Smith Jr and you're down Alonso old tree here to a concussion protocol.
00:28:22
Wayne Ellington is out sore left Achilles.
00:28:27
And still Bennet Smith Jr didn't get off the bench.
00:28:32
That kind of lets you know where he stands right now with Mike Miller.
00:28:35
My opinion.
00:28:38
You know, bottom line that lets you know where he stands.
00:28:43
I got Mark appear in the chat.
00:28:46
I don't want to talk to Mark a big shout out to you guys, man, thinking to take some time out of your day, uh, to join me.

00:29:57
What's going on, brother? How you feeling? Going.
00:29:59
Okay, Shelling man.
00:30:01
I'm telling you, I just got I just got home from work.
00:30:04
What's going on? Okay, so So So tell me what you think man was going on with two.
00:30:11
And three since Mike Miller took over.
00:30:12
We've been playing better, right? We've been blown out one time, but the Portland Trail Blazers now we go, we're gonna try to start a new streak.
00:30:18
Vs Elena Hawks.
00:30:22
Uh um, in the holiest games just blitzed out of trade on, get the ball out his hand.
00:30:28
But everyone around him score.
00:30:30
I saw a lot of teams of doing time, right now to turn right now, and it's and it's helping.
00:30:35
So what I would do is I would have I would have ah.
00:30:40
Mission, huh? And Frank Blitz, um, and pick and roll situations where he want to use the pick and roll, please.
00:30:47
As his offense, You just blitz him, get the ball in his hands.
00:30:50
He's got the balls head.
00:30:51
You'll have a chance to beat Atlanta.
00:30:52
Just don't have him masquerading around pick and roll.
00:30:55
Then he'll kill you.
00:30:56
What? It's passing, and it's scorn and just mixing up the game.
00:31:00
But, oh, I have something about have something to say about the trading deadline and everything.
00:31:09
Oh, uh, well, Marcus Morris, I want him here.
00:31:14
I don't want him here for a reason.
00:31:18
I feel you again.
00:31:21
We have young players are and with an exit.
00:31:25
Right now, we need someone that has, like, a voice in the locker room, even on the court, or even have a presence on the floor because again, we don't have, like, a transcendent talent way younger place could follow.
00:31:40
So I will consider keep, uh, Marcus Mars, depending on dependent on it.
00:31:50
If the Coopers want him, give me it covers one, because we have to give me the Hawk, this kid Jerome Robertson and 2020 21st round pick that they have.
00:32:02
I think it's unprotected.
00:32:04
If we don't get that from, I don't want to train Marcus Morris.
00:32:08
And another thing, I think all this is playing in my bolt hall went, If the sudden, the way the sun's looking out as they continue to keep growing, I'm still thinking about that Devin Booker trade.
00:32:20
So I want everybody.
00:32:24
I want you by the Children of the trading because I think with trail traer Julius Randle, Kevin knocks and then Dallas picks and probably another next pick is gonna play a big, big role.
00:32:37
And and one, these other stars just wanted to leave.
00:32:39
Sooner or later, it's gonna be I Devin Booker calls any towns.
00:32:45
I have a feeling I have a feeling we'll let me t actually trade And Devon Book is the one guy that I want badly Let me say some.
00:32:56
I've always had a feeling that Karl Anthony Towns is gonna look to get out of Minnesota sooner or later, and I have no doubt in my mind that when and if he looks to get out of Minnesota, he's definitely going to consider New York.
00:33:15
I know he's going to consider New York book office and again in this order in our great is in a great, great spot.
00:33:24
We had a great, great spot, depending on if one of those two excellent trade.
00:33:31
Because if we're if we're getting rid off young players So as I Devon book all college towns, which is gonna happen bushes that happened and getting ready to load one of those call $200 picks or maybe another.
00:33:47
I don't care if you if I get a callable talent like that, because if I get either him well, Devon book, that gives me a viable chance.
00:33:57
2021 enticing.
00:33:59
Jealous, too. Coming.
00:34:00
Plus, we'll have numerous off cat spaces around telling around those two, but it only depends on if you get my nose off the road.
00:34:12
Brights.
00:34:13
Those ain't no sonically ain't playing with your old place, so I'm looking to keep markets Mars.
00:34:18
If clippers don't give me what I want, you're wrong.
00:34:21
Robinson, Mark chocolates and 2020.
00:34:24
Other than that, I don't I want to keep Morris I want to keep everybody as a right right now.
00:34:30
So I have one of those young thoroughbreds actually trade.
00:34:34
Or if the Clippers are going to give me that package to get, uh, to take Morris the next after Dobby, the best thing could that your own Robinson kid, He can't get minutes on his Cooper's team.
00:34:45
But that kid can score the basketball, but he's a great from Trigger.
00:34:51
I think he's more.
00:34:52
He's more.
00:34:53
You could play more off the ball.
00:34:55
He's more of, ah, team score and not go a long range of scorer that can score that needs the ball.
00:35:03
You don't need the ball to school.
00:35:05
I come a lot coming out of college.
00:35:07
He was really, really, really good.
00:35:08
But he's already in the minutes on that clip of seem to really shows his talent.
00:35:13
He's just wanted your mom to CJ McCollum a lot, a lot.
00:35:17
Just you just got to get him, get his minutes to show his talent.
00:35:21
So I kind of wanna hold off on trains because ah, lot of our salary come especially for that.
00:35:26
Devin Booker, never book, is on again paying $27 million so the next one.
00:35:32
Over the next up a load, Randall Kevin knocks trail and them two first round picks, and I'll throw in a second round if they want.
00:35:40
It just gives me, Ah, young thoroughbred like those two and Dan Dan wait really happen again? Because I was watching them.
00:35:53
I was on my way home from the train and I was watching the game on the train and my milking coach from a standpoint, if he just pieces, just wasn't so mismatch.
00:36:08
Boy, if you just put a team together because the identity is there, so what he wants to do and defensively, Jesus Christ, he seems man, he got a skin going on because they're not deaf again.
00:36:25
We went down 20 and he brought it up best.
00:36:30
When? When you reason that bench that bench could fly defensively compared to the first star lineup because the Starline can't move like that could have a look.
00:36:41
We have a lot of guys that's not really fast on a not fast put it.
00:36:46
But when he breaks that second unit, if you watched game, sometimes a second, you know, always brings back into games defensively.
00:36:52
Well, in the first half, that second unit gave up the lead.
00:36:55
Well, I mean, they that bench, that second unit allowed Denver to extend it lead.
00:37:03
It was when they came in, it was like a 45 point lead.
00:37:07
Next thing you know was 15 16 point lead.
00:37:11
It was crazy.
00:37:12
We could go to think, Oh, my God, Wait.
00:37:18
The threes is clicking for him like that, but we were getting killed in the pain more than getting killed on threes in a game.
00:37:27
For some reason, it just wasn't gonna pay Beach that night.
00:37:32
But when he brought in that second unit just from a from a flying around defensively and and trying to hone and trying to hone and try to hold on the defense, it just looks better sometimes with the second unit stuff like that sometimes Sometimes I think what he has to do.
00:37:52
I think it looks best when he keeps one off stars in the game.
00:37:58
You gotta have one of those starters in the game.
00:37:59
Did it then? I think it works out now.
00:38:04
Everyone points him out because it got me tight that the other night.
00:38:09
Well, we was off three right this the shooter selection by that man about 30 ****ed me off sin.
00:38:19
What did he tell you? Three.
00:38:21
Just remember, in ticket, I left Corner three, which was not me, even though we got the shot on that same possession.
00:38:31
The late Gange, the making shooting decisions by those two.
00:38:38
Sometimes it boils my skin because I look at the offense.
00:38:46
Start the fourth quarter.
00:38:47
It was a lot of Randall Morris, Randall Morris, Randall Morris and I are two gets the ball.
00:38:53
He gets putting weird situations.
00:38:56
Well, yes, oh, foursome shots Or he goes quick cause he's no, you know, get the ball when he needs to.
00:39:04
This org cutting and not getting the ball on the dime to soar in the paint.
00:39:12
Yes, a clean at all And radio Lhasa? No, bro.
00:39:15
Stop it.
00:39:16
Every play call for you to be a superhero.
00:39:19
When games of that type, we can't win that way, and we could have that game.
00:39:25
We got game, so I want him and Morris to star.
00:39:31
Sometimes that hero ball and I know that bad selection shooting by random kills me every time.
00:39:37
I don't automatically absolve all Jake is R.
00:39:41
J.
00:39:42
has some.
00:39:43
He had some bad shots as well.
00:39:44
You can't go back.
00:39:47
Those calls were not getting the ball is not, is not always, man.
00:39:52
Sometimes, I mean, he's a bookie's entitled as bad shots.
00:39:55
But you know this and that whole team, We're taking bad shots in the fourth quarter.
00:40:01
You're saying the whole way before Last night I said, What the hell are you doing? What are you doing? You mean the whole team I look at, I look at two.
00:40:15
I feel like in that fourth quarter, frankly, Lieutenant type's gift.
00:40:19
It should have been in the game. R.
00:40:20
J was not having a good game.
00:40:21
I don't think he should have been in Yeah, someone.
00:40:25
Sometimes it's best.
00:40:26
Sometimes it's like a selection.
00:40:29
It is the same.
00:40:30
Excuse that car because I say as as much of that order, I say, Yo u had a ticket.
00:40:35
Michael, you is abysmal again.
00:40:37
Was abysmal in the fourth quarter.
00:40:39
So sometimes sometimes he has.
00:40:41
Sometimes he asks us, his substitution is at that Sometimes Sometimes I think I just feel like you said the last night.
00:40:51
Hey, you should have had You should have had Frank Lilly Kane in the fourth quarter and, he said, a bad hips in tights.
00:41:02
Gibson played five minutes of 45 seconds in the fourth quarter.
00:41:05
Frankly, Latina played five minutes of 45 seconds in the fourth quarter.
00:41:11
Sometime soon, he just robbed the guys that that just get in there.
00:41:16
And so I was hard to take out a rotation that is working for you later, but I don't R.
00:41:26
J.
00:41:27
Barrett played 12 minutes in the fourth quarter, all right.
00:41:30
He was one for five and one for four from the three point line.
00:41:34
It was by the bar.
00:41:36
But sometimes I think sometimes the kid need to feel the ball because it's more rhythm player other than give him the ball angle create from Simon.
00:41:45
Listen, when you took the second in his game and these are fast enough to create for himself.
00:41:52
So it has to be a lot of bull touching and a lot of passes coming in to feel like he's in the office a lot of home.
00:42:01
He's out of it.
00:42:02
I'll be watching him.
00:42:03
This is placed on a game look.
00:42:06
Yesterday last night, he took the second most shots in the fourth quarter.
00:42:10
He took five.
00:42:12
It took five shots in the fourth quarter.
00:42:14
All right, Julius Randle took eight.
00:42:16
It was three for eight in the fourth quarter.
00:42:19
Um, Marcus Morris was awful four in the fourth quarter and Todd's gifts in his five minutes of 45 seconds.
00:42:26
He was two or three in the fourth quarter.
00:42:28
Okay, I mean, what you say, what it is about possession, possession, how much you touched the ball within possessions.
00:42:37
I get it, but that's what I'm saying.
00:42:39
But this is look the entire second half the entire second half.
00:42:44
J.
00:42:45
Barrett took six shots in the entire second half.
00:42:48
Five No.
00:42:49
Six shots came in the fourth quarter.
00:42:50
He was getting his touches, you know, sometimes he built himself about taking it to listen.
00:42:56
I've seen two or three times when he got the ball with six or seven seconds left on the shot clock and he built himself out with three, still trying to go to the back.
00:43:05
So that way you get a ball.
00:43:10
Well, he's getting the ball in those possessions.
00:43:14
Those are those passes are coming over because either more or Randall got it.
00:43:19
I saw a lot of the shot that was predicated on a last minute shot, and you can give it to indulge.
00:43:26
You can't get a possession.
00:43:28
I see.
00:43:32
This is why I disagree, because I don't think if you get the ball with seven seconds, you got enough time.
00:43:37
There's enough time where you could still go to the cup.
00:43:40
You'll say there's enough time since it is a small four guy that can get basket every time.
00:43:48
It's not. It's not him.
00:43:50
Things like that.
00:43:53
Yes, what I'm saying, I am not making excuses for anybody on his team, including R. J.
00:43:58
Berry.
00:43:59
You don't say, and I I feel like R. J.
00:44:01
Barrett.
00:44:02
There are times when R.
00:44:03
J buried, too, has his moments where he isolates it, holds the ball or takes bad shots.
00:44:08
I'm not making excuses for anybody, and I feel like RG Barry has his times, just like anybody else.
00:44:15
You went one for five in the fourth quarter.
00:44:17
Five of those shots, one for you, one for five in the fourth quarter.
00:44:20
Most of those shots were threes, where he had a chance where he could have went to the basketball.
00:44:25
He launched a three there was one or two where, you know, he caught the ball and, you know, it was at a point in time.
00:44:33
We had a long jumper.
00:44:34
Three, but most of the time he gets the ball.
00:44:36
He has some seconds on the clock where he could go to the basket.
00:44:39
Still, I'm saying, and you know, he built itself out by shooting threes because their defense was tough.
00:44:46
So they built himself out.
00:44:47
That's what That's when I saw.
00:44:50
That's what I saw.
00:44:51
Arjun Bear did not play well last night.
00:44:53
He shouldn't even have been in and fourth quarter.
00:44:55
My opinion Mike Miller, trust him.
00:44:59
Wanna ride is young rookie.
00:45:01
I get it.
00:45:02
I understand it. You know, saying it.
00:45:04
We'll see it.
00:45:05
You know, I'm pretty sure he'll make some adjustments come the next game.
00:45:08
But, you know, I'm not making any excuses for already buried in this plate.
00:45:11
When he plays bad, he plays bad.
00:45:14
I'm saying it almost, and I'm gonna call it.
00:45:15
I'm not making excuses for Andy.
00:45:17
What's going on with you, bro? What's up, sin man? Clear.
00:45:23
I still didn't watch the game and I don't know the results.
00:45:26
Even he's going to go to a result.
00:45:29
But I saw that, you know, the that you were alive.
00:45:32
So, like, I'm gonna join in.
00:45:35
Okay.
00:45:37
Well, I'm not gonna say it was okay.
00:45:38
Then Tell them guys don't tell you the result.
00:45:41
Because I'm sure you're gonna watch the game.
00:45:43
Oh, I think it's possible even when I see more here, man.
00:45:48
It has to be bad, man.
00:45:52
But can we win versus Atlanta? I put it that way.
00:45:55
Can we win versus land if I was okay? Jules, I think this is one of the themes that we match up really good and even you know that Pray Young can have our explosive game with the truth with the with the trays and stop dying trees that three pointers.
00:46:16
I still think if we just don't switch and put Frank or 100 on him at all times, I think we can you know, this rubber there often so much that we can have a chance to get a W and that this is one of the teams that I actually think the Knicks have a pretty good chance to win.
00:46:38
Ah, and that I will be man and everything that I have to say about this.
00:46:43
This is this preview for for Atlanta Hearts.
00:46:45
I just hope that they're not gonna switch on you.
00:46:48
No one screens, and God forbid, they're gonna know.
00:46:53
Go around the screens.
00:46:55
You know, below the screens, they have to sit on Trey old.
00:46:58
I'm No, I I agree with you.
00:47:03
They got yet I agree with you.
00:47:04
They got to be on them tight, the entire gala because, um, yeah, they sent a lot of screens, betrayed young.
00:47:10
They want to get your young handling the ball in the paint and then finding guys open in the painting in those separate names.
00:47:17
So gay, they got my tactics, you know, to get no the bowler of Trey Young's hand and let everyone else try to beat us than than than Trey Young because he can get 40 50 points on the team.
00:47:29
I cost.
00:47:30
If we're gonna, you know, let him shoot.
00:47:32
So that's the thing.
00:47:33
We got it.
00:47:34
We know we got Ah, This worked off their offense by our defense.
00:47:39
No man to man known Switching, So Yeah, yeah, no, go.
00:47:44
Let me get to Ah, let me get to Karim.
00:47:48
And then because I'm gonna be getting out of here shortly.
00:47:52
But I got to get the practice myself.
00:47:53
Career was going on, man.
00:47:55
Hey, how's it going? So I'm I'm good. I'm good.
00:47:58
Tell me, um, tomorrow night, But Selena, we should get a winning.
00:48:07
I think we could pull it out.
00:48:09
Yeah.
00:48:10
You know what's so crazy about this team? Awesome.
00:48:13
And I don't know if you noticed this last night.
00:48:16
We out we we knew then what? We put ourselves in the position of Wayne as we had a very dominant third quarter thing.
00:48:25
We score like 31 points in the third quarter from that point.
00:48:29
33 points in the third.
00:48:31
Yeah, so if you notice what it came down the stretch when we took the lead and I was saying this a lot of these games that we're in is because we have players that we dominate the paint because we don't shoot well outside.
00:48:55
So what number did was they took the pain away from us, and they forced us to shoot, and we had no answer for it.
00:49:03
We could not hit the side of a barn, right? You know, So are, you know, it.
00:49:10
And you know, But, you know, we came back and who know put ourselves And you know that, um, you know, in a position and when.
00:49:20
But of course, like you said before, you know, along with a lot of other people is gotta hash on the start.
00:49:28
You know, I don't want it to where we get to this game.
00:49:30
And Trey Young is just going off when it started a horn, right, You know, And to be honest with you, man, it's like, what? Allah team this Duke within this last four games, he's proving, you know, Elka paid.
00:49:46
Now he's on the floor.
00:49:48
You know, you could kind of, like, relax, you guys, somebody that's gonna take control of the team once he has to sit down and rest.
00:49:56
We don't have another point guard that's gonna take the show like he does.
00:50:01
So then you got Barrett playing point guard, which I can't stand.
00:50:05
I don't like having Barrett played point guard either.
00:50:07
I think it takes away from the rest of his game at this point in his career.
00:50:11
At this point in his career.
00:50:13
Mmm.
00:50:14
You know, we got a lot of guys like Darry, like Knox, where we're not you utilizing them off the ball.
00:50:22
Buy Knox is and off the ballplayer.
00:50:24
We don't use him in that man.
00:50:27
So how can we do you know? Then you get success out of him. It's impossible.
00:50:34
No.
00:50:35
Es. Um, we'll see.
00:50:39
You know, we're still looking to see what Mike Miller is gonna do.
00:50:42
You know what I'm saying? How he's going to continue to use these guys.
00:50:45
Of course, we've seen some things, but we'll continue to see what Mike Miller is gonna do.
00:50:49
Uh, and how this offense out his team develops under Mike Miller.
00:50:54
I, um Listen, ladies and gentlemen, I'm about to get out of here in, like, three minutes, but before I do that, I just want to run through this little game preview real quick now to end the show and I'll let you guys get back to work.
00:51:10
I know you got a lot of stuff to finish up before you before you start getting on that train ride home or bus ride home, a car ride home, all walking home or taking a bike, a school or a skateboard.
00:51:22
Whatever you do, then explain tomorrow night.

You did DeAndre answer to buy Parker and Damien Jones.
00:52:07
I had the injury report.
00:52:08
Right now, there's no no injury reports for the Atlanta Hawks.
00:52:13
Kevin Hueter.
00:52:14
He was out, Would it? Shoulder, But he played Last night was the Los Angeles Lakers.
00:52:19
So I'm assuming that is going to be playing for us.
00:52:20
The Knicks, looking at the numbers behind the game.
00:52:27
Both teams are six and 21.
00:52:29
The Knicks on one game losing streak.
00:52:31
They were just on a two game winning streak.
00:52:34
They lost last night to the Denver Nuggets in a close game.
00:52:38
The average 101.
00:52:39
2 points per game.
00:52:42
They gave up 111.
00:52:43
1 points per game.
00:52:45
They shoot 42.
00:52:46
4% from the field, 34.
00:52:47
4% from three and 45.3%.
00:52:50
I'm sorry.
00:52:51
They grabbed 45.
00:52:52
3 rebounds per game, the average 20.
00:52:55
1 assists per game in 14.
00:52:57
6 turnovers per game.
00:52:59
The offensive rating is one or 2.6.
00:53:01
That study within a league defensive rating is 1 12.
00:53:04
6 That's 25th in the league.
00:53:06
The Atlanta Hawks, during a four game losing streak.
00:53:11
All right, the average 108.1 points per game.
00:53:14
They gave up 117.8 points per game.
00:53:17
They shoot 44.
00:53:18
9% from the field, 33.
00:53:19
9% from three, the average 42.
00:53:23
1 rebounds per game, 23.
00:53:25
6 assists per game and 17.
00:53:27
5 turnovers per game.
00:53:30
The offensive rating is one of 4.
00:53:31
4 that's 26th in the league, and the defensive rating is 1 13.
00:53:35
6 That's 27th in the league.
00:53:39
I have the key match up to tomorrow night's game.
00:53:44
Trey Young and, frankly, Lykina.
00:53:46
I think that's a key matchup you can add Alphabet in here as well as both of these guys is gonna have the defense.
00:53:51
Ray Young.
00:53:52
The key is to not try a young, not let a young girl crazy.
00:53:55
Not let train young killers in the paint defend Trey Young as you runs off multiple screens.
00:54:04
Younger, 611 80 Averages 27.
00:54:05
8 points per game, 4.
00:54:07
2 rebounds per game.
00:54:09
8.
00:54:10
5 assists per game on 1.
00:54:11
2 steals per game.
00:54:13
Choose 44.
00:54:14
3% from the field, 36.
00:54:15
8% from three.
00:54:17
Frankly. Latina 67 £200.
00:54:19
Guards. Last forward.
00:54:21
Six point.
00:54:22
He averaged 6.
00:54:23
1 points per game, Two rebounds a game, 3.
00:54:25
1 Insists on 1.4 steals.
00:54:28
She was 38.
00:54:29
2% from the field, 32.
00:54:30
8% from three.
00:54:32
Right now, a Keen is a good defender.
00:54:35
Yes, those nights where it doesn't play is great, you know, great defense, but he's a good defender.
00:54:41
We need to rely on Frank allocated to defend Trey young.
00:54:44
Every page is a good defender.
00:54:46
Both of these guys can defend Trey.
00:54:48
Young Young is gonna get Hayes. You know it.
00:54:51
They send them off for 1,000,000 screens, every single possession.
00:54:57
So you gotta have guys fight over those screens.
00:55:01
But why they fight over the screen, You need the person who was defending the screener to help out.
00:55:09
And then you need somebody to help out the person who was defending the screener.
00:55:13
You need someone to help out that person.
00:55:15
That's how you play it.
00:55:16
Help side defense until Franklin Latina recovers.
00:55:20
Once frankly, Latina or Elfrid Payton recovers, and everybody else can get back to that man.
00:55:25
But that's how we got to defend him.
00:55:27
And at times we gotta send screen.
00:55:30
We gotta send traps, right? Whoever is the screener, the person defending the screener.
00:55:41
You send a trap that person traps, make him pass the ball to the open.
00:55:47
You know, screener, get the ball out of his hand, make these other guys score a little bit.
00:55:54
They could score. Mean Jabbar.
00:55:55
Parker averaged 16 points per game.
00:55:57
John Collins 17 points per game.
00:55:58
I think you do is like eight or nine points per game.
00:56:03
All right, but make these guys put up some points.
00:56:08
Keys to the game.
00:56:09
Ladies and gentlemen, bring the energy.
00:56:11
We've been bringing good energy.
00:56:12
We've got to keep it up, Keep their energy coming.
00:56:16
All right, let's make it hard on Trey Young.
00:56:17
Like I said, let's trap him.
00:56:18
He scored 23 points when he played against us.
00:56:21
And, um, and the in the preseason.
00:56:26
I speak a hard on him, Trap him, all right.
00:56:30
Make it difficult for him to get into the paint or to get get off shots.
00:56:34
Whatever you do, don't go under screens against him because he's gonna knock it down.
00:56:40
All right, don't play loose.
00:56:41
Don't let him get comfortable.
00:56:43
Protect the paint.
00:56:44
The Hawks average 52.
00:56:45
4 points per game in the paint.
00:56:47
That's fourth in the league.
00:56:49
A lot of that's because train Young gets into the paint and then he This is it often facilitates.
00:56:55
I said, we gotta find a way to protect that paint.
00:56:57
When the rebounding battle.
00:56:59
When we played the Hawks in the preseason, they outrebounded us by don't Tina.
00:57:03
14 rebounds that cannot happen shouldn't happen, especially when you're not a good shooting team like we are.
00:57:12
People started in the game with the bridge, all right.
00:57:16
You always got to keep a starter in the game.
00:57:18
In my opinion, with this team, we're not good enough.
00:57:20
Our branches and good enough oh, are consistent enough to play without there being a starter in the game.
00:57:27
Julius Randle, Marcus Morris, R J. Barry.
00:57:31
Whoever is having a good game, whoever fits with the lineup keep one of those guys in the game.
00:57:36
In my opinion, we need ball movement into attack.
00:57:40
The paint.
00:57:41
The Atlanta Hawks Why, they score 52.
00:57:42
4 points per game in the paint.
00:57:44
They give up 51.
00:57:45
9 points of the game in the paint.
00:57:47
That's 27th in the league.
00:57:48
So it's there, all right.
00:57:51
We got to keep the ball moving, attacked the paint and also playing transition.
00:57:57
Atlanta's 23rd in the league and allowing of fastbreak points.
00:58:03
All right, let's try.
00:58:04
Let's try to take advantage of that Playing transition.
00:58:06
Attacked the paint.
00:58:09
Those are my keys to the game.
00:58:10
Ladies and gentlemen, those are my keys to the game.
00:58:14
And, uh, listen, we'll let you guys get up outta here.
00:58:19
You can get back to work, focus on your jobs, and I'm going to get the basketball practice.
00:58:25
All right.
00:58:26

Nick's family was popping Is your boy.
00:01:26
We saw the Knicks lose a close one to the Denver Nuggets last night.
00:01:33
It snapped a losing streak, but they're gonna look to restart.
00:01:36
The losing streak bursts the Atlanta Hawks tomorrow night.
00:01:40
So let's talk about it.
00:01:55
Ladies and gentlemen, we're going to get right to the point today.
00:02:00
Jumped right on into it.
00:02:02
The Knicks play the Atlanta Hawks tomorrow night at 7 30 at Madison Square Garden.
00:02:08
Hey, look, the Knicks played the Hawks in preseason, and they lost 100 to 96.
00:02:15
We're gonna take a look at that game, not the game.
00:02:18
But we're gonna look at some of those stats from that game, which was, you know, two months ago whenever it waas.
00:02:29
You guys remember Vince Carter had a night at the Garden, even though it was pre season.
00:02:35
He had a night at the Garden.
00:02:36
It was killing the Knicks.
00:02:40
But let's take a look at this game.
00:02:45
See if the Knicks can restart their streak playing one of the week of teams in the league.
00:02:51
The Knicks head Coats.
00:02:53
It's Mike Miller in term head coach, and so far under Mike Miller, they? They've played well.
00:03:02
They're 23.
00:03:04
If the two or three have been blown out one time by the Portland Trail Blazers, all of the games have been down to the wire so we could take something from net.
00:03:19
The Atlanta Hawks had coaches.
00:03:20
Lloyd peers for the Knicks.
00:03:24
The projected starters of frankly, Latina at point guard R.
00:03:28
J.
00:03:29
Barrett at shooting guard aren't those two could be switched around.
00:03:31
It could be R. J.
00:03:32
Bear that point guard in front millikin at shooting guard, where whatever they decide the list, um, doesn't really matter much.
00:03:40
Market s'mores at small forward Julius Randle.
00:03:42
Why Power forward and tides.
00:03:44
Gibson That center Reggie Bullock is out with a neck.
00:03:47
Wayne Ellington with a sore left Achilles with the Atlanta Hawks.
00:03:54
Trade Young.
00:03:55
He started at point guard pretty much knew that Kevin Hueter is that shoot guard DeAndre Hunter, that small forward Jabari Parker at power forward and Jamie Jones at center.
00:04:07
And I'm gonna tell you what I liked what I saw in the preseason of the Andre Hunter when the Knicks played the Atlanta Hawks.
00:04:17
I thought he played very well, and I think we need to watch out for this guy tomorrow night, Okay? I like the R J. Answer.
00:04:30
I like what he brings to the game is the defense of guy, but it was showing a good midrange game when we played against him in the preseason.
00:04:38
Of course, that's the preseason.
00:04:40
This is the regular season.
00:04:41
Things changed a lot.
00:04:44
Things changed a lot.
00:04:47
Let's take a look at some of the stats behind a game, of course.
00:04:52
The Nexus 6 to 21 on the season.
00:04:54
So the Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks have a one game losing streak.
00:04:58
They just came off of a two game winning streak.
00:05:01
Then he lost last night to the Denver Nuggets, a game in which they had a lead.
00:05:08
It would doubt 20.
00:05:09
They came back, took the lead in the fourth quarter, but they couldn't finish it out.
00:05:14
There were held scoreless, the last one out scoreless, but they were outscored 13 and three in the last four minutes and 30 seconds of the game, or 13 to 5 the last four minutes and 30 seconds of the game.
00:05:26
And when a good three minutes or so without scoring Atlanta Hawks during a four game losing streak.
00:05:31
They lost last night to the Los Angeles Lakers.
00:05:36
The Knicks average 101.
00:05:37
2 points per game.
00:05:40
They give up 111.
00:05:41
1 points per game.
00:05:43
They shoot 42.
00:05:44
2% from the field, 34.
00:05:46
4% from three in the average 45.
00:05:48
3 rebounds per game.
00:05:50
They also averaged 20.
00:05:51
1 assists per game in 14.
00:05:53
6 turnovers per game.
00:05:56
The next offensive rating is one of 2.
00:05:57
6 that study it in the league, and the defense of Raining is 1 12.
00:06:02
6 That's 25th in the league.
00:06:05
But look, they're playing a team that's just not that good, either.
00:06:11
Again, the Hawks losing streak is that four they averaged 108.
00:06:15
1 points per game.
00:06:19
They give up 117.
00:06:20
8 points per game.
00:06:23
They shoot 44.
00:06:24
9% from the field, 33.
00:06:25
9% from three, the average 42.
00:06:29
1 rebounds per game, 23.
00:06:31
6 assists per game and 17.
00:06:34
5 turnovers per game.
00:06:36
The offensive rating rating is 104.
00:06:37
4 that's 26th in the league and their defense of rating is 1 13.
00:06:42
6 That's 27th in the league.
00:06:49
This is a team, Ladies and gentlemen, if you're going to restart a street, you can restart streak with these guys and they're gonna be at home.
00:06:58
But there's a guy we gotta watch out for. Four.
00:07:00
Not far for that.
00:07:02
Watch out, Betray young ladies and gentlemen.
00:07:05
So frightening.
00:07:06
Makena, you've got to be on your job tomorrow night.
00:07:10
So young.
00:07:11
He's 61 £180 averaging 27.
00:07:16
8 points per game this season.
00:07:18
Four points rebounds, 8.
00:07:19
5 assists you have.
00:07:21
It's just 1.
00:07:22
2 steals per game.
00:07:25
He shoots 44.
00:07:26
3% from the field in 36.
00:07:27
8% from three.
00:07:31
He is a guy that you gotta defend it.
00:07:33
We're gonna talk about how to defend it.
00:07:37
Frightening looking at 67 £200 guard forward, he averaged 6.
00:07:41
1 points per game, two point two rebounds per game, 3.
00:07:45
1 assists of 1.
00:07:46
4 steals per game.
00:07:47
Theseus, 38.
00:07:48
2% from the field and 32.
00:07:50
8% from three.
00:07:53
Let's talk about this matchup because the last thing that we need is for Trey Young to get loose against us.
00:08:05
Okay, that's the last thing that we need.
00:08:07
We don't need that to happen, but it can happen if you remember from the last game from the preseason game.
00:08:16
The Hogs.
00:08:18
They run straight, Young off of a lot of screens.
00:08:22
They said a lot of screens for the guy, so it's gonna be important, vitally important that we don't switch as much.
00:08:29
We let Frank Miller can, frankly looking to fight over the screens, But it's what we got to do.
00:08:36
We need for our big made to kind of heads just a little bit right, because they're going to set a lot of screens, betray Young.
00:08:47
It's gonna be impossible for Frank Miller Kina to fight over every single screen and be there.
00:08:54
Bam on a dime.
00:08:56
So our big men, you're gonna have to do a good job Frightening.
00:08:59
Looking to get the screen.
00:09:01
You hedge your hedge a little bit.
00:09:04
Just enough to slow up to a young as Frank nearly Kino recovers.
00:09:09
Elfrid Payton is well, all right.
00:09:13
And then you get back to your guys and then you need the backside guys to help out as well.
00:09:20
All right, so they say Tarts.
00:09:23
Gibson is defending.
00:09:24
Whoever is screening for trade Young time ships is gonna help out just a little bit.
00:09:31
And as time's Gibson is helping out, somebody else on the backside is gonna slide over and help out Taj Gibson.
00:09:39
So that times Gibsons Man doesn't get the pass off the role or the value.
00:09:46
And then once Latina recovers what she's got to do quickly because if not trying, Younger's gonna find somebody he's averaging like eight assists per game.
00:09:56
Once Frank nearly Kina recovers Gibson coming couples to his man and that person coming covers to that man, the person who helped out Charles Gibson can recover to that man I saw.
00:10:07
It's really got to be a team defense on a string so that we do not let Trey Young pick us apart.
00:10:14
But we need Frank Miller Keenan to be tight on Trey Young because if he's not tight entree young, he's good.
00:10:20
He'll start getting loose from three.
00:10:22
If he starts getting loose from three, we're gonna be in trouble is that it's gonna really loosen up that dif the offense or loosen up the defense so that they could get a lot of penetration and get in the lane.
00:10:35
They all righty score a lot of points in the paint.
00:10:40
That's something we're gonna talk about in our keys to the game.
00:10:43
But this is definitely a key matchup.
00:10:46
Frankly, Latina first tray Young.
00:10:49
It's a very key matchup and, frankly looking has got to be on his job.
00:10:53
When L for Peyton gets in the game, he's got to be on his job.
00:10:56
I do not expect to see Dennis made junior much tomorrow night.
00:11:03
We haven't seen him in two games.
00:11:05
I don't expect him to come in and play tomorrow night when we're facing the guard like trade Young, who could be explosive.
00:11:17
So that's my key matchup for this game.
00:11:22
Ladies and gentlemen, that's my key matchup.
00:11:26
Now let's talk about some of the keys of the game, some of the keys to this game.
00:11:32
As soon as I get it back up on my screen, I'm going to get to the keys to the game.
00:11:36
Here we go.
00:11:37
Keys to the game.
00:11:38
Ladies and gentlemen, um, the first key to this game.
00:11:42
Obviously, let's continue to bring the energy.
00:11:45
We were playing with energy.
00:11:47
We got to continue to bring that energy, all right.
00:11:50
It's been good so far.
00:11:53
It's been good.
00:11:54
We got to continue to bring it.
00:11:58
It seemed to bring it all right.
00:12:01
My next key to the game.
00:12:04
Make it hard on Trey Young.
00:12:06
We were just talking about how Trey Young they they run Trey Young off of a lot of screens, right? I mean, he uses to three screens every possession, one of the ways we've seen it happen.
00:12:23
Tow us.
00:12:25
The other day against Golden State, every single time a screener came for Frank Miller Kino Elford paying in the second half of the game.
00:12:32
This is every time a screener came, the person was defending.
00:12:36
The screener would trap.
00:12:40
Now, when they trapped us, we turned the ball over.
00:12:45
We're not gonna expect trading on the turn the ball over, but he'll probably be able to pass out of the trap.
00:12:51
It's okay.
00:12:52
You know what? He's averaged 28 points per game.
00:12:55
Basically, let him pass out of the trap to see if somebody else could be this.
00:12:59
Jabari Parker averages 16 points per game.
00:13:02
Collins.
00:13:03
I think he averages 17 points per game and see if those guys can get 35 points to something, see what they do.
00:13:11
He's obviously the most prolific player that they had and see if we can trap him up.
00:13:16
He's he's 61 You got a guy frankly, located at 67 even Elford paying.
00:13:23
If he's got him in 64 got three inches in height on him.
00:13:30
I said, Let's see if we could trap Trey Young.
00:13:32
We've got to protect the paint as well.
00:13:35
Okay, the Hawks.
00:13:37
They score 52.
00:13:38
4 points per game in the paint.
00:13:40
That's fourth in the league.
00:13:43
We've got to do a good job protecting the paint.
00:13:46
Ladies and gentlemen, we don't do a good job protecting the paint, and we're gonna be in trouble playing against these guys.
00:13:53
I am one of the reasons why they score so many points in the paint.
00:13:55
It's probably because it's very young, all right.
00:14:00
Trey Young does a good job getting in the paint off for the many screens that they give for him.
00:14:07
Right? Nicotine is screened for this guy screen for this cry scream for this guy, and he gets into the paint so young and the When we played them in the off season Ah, in the preseason, he had 23 points, man.
00:14:22
In fact, I bring this on over so you guys can check out to see what I'm looking at as a realty.
00:14:29
All right.
00:14:30
Try.
00:14:31
Young had 23 points the last game we played him.
00:14:32
And yes, that game was in.
00:14:34
Um, that game was during Ah, it was a pre season game, but whatever.
00:14:40
Jae Young had 23 points, all right? He had nine assists.
00:14:50
We allow these guys we allowed trying, you know, to get loose on us and get assists and get in the paint.
00:14:59
We allowed trade young to get in the paint.
00:15:01
We allowed trade young to come off the screens, get in the paint and create s So we really got a limit.
00:15:09
These guys getting in the paint part of that is going to be trapping.
00:15:13
Trained young, keeping him out of the paint, not identified.
00:15:17
The Adre 100.
00:15:18
Jabari Parker. John Collins.
00:15:20
I don't think John Collins played against us the last time we played.
00:15:27
So we're going to see We're gonna see how that goes.
00:15:32
Keeping that guy out paint is not gonna be easy.
00:15:34
Task.
00:15:36
The next key to the game, ladies and gentlemen, is to win the rebounding battle.
00:15:43
We lost the rebounding battle to these guys.
00:15:46
Ah, I don't know. Bye.
00:15:48
13 14 rebounds.
00:15:49
Last time it was 57.
00:15:51
40 something.
00:15:52
Something like that.
00:15:53
We spared a winner rebounding battle.
00:15:55
We should be close.
00:15:56
We should never lose the rebounding battle by double digits.
00:15:59
We see either win the rebounding battle.
00:16:00
Or if we do, if another team gets more rebounds, it's, you know, one or two rebounds, three rebounds or something like that, which he never get killed on the boards.
00:16:10
We got enough.
00:16:11
Rebound is we should not get killed on the boards.
00:16:16
We need a wit already.
00:16:18
Just I just said when the rebounding battle, we need to keep a starter in with the bench.
00:16:25
I think this is key and not just for this game, but for every game that we play.
00:16:32
We do not have a team that's good enough tohave our entire bench on the floor and think that we're gonna win If you see if you watch last night's game against the Nuggets, when the bench came in game with game with the trash and Nuggets took a huge lead.
00:16:55
We brought it back when we we put our starters back in the game, all right.
00:17:02
In the second half, you see that Mike Miller always kept somebody in the game.
00:17:05
Marcus Morris.
00:17:06
Julius Randle always kept one of those guys in the game.
00:17:09
This is what we have to do.
00:17:11
I don't think you can depend on our bench to be productive on a regular basis.
00:17:18
It's gonna be some nights.
00:17:19
They are some nights there nights and you see that bench is getting shortened.
00:17:24
Last night, Mike Miller played nine guys.
00:17:29
No, no, no allies will trade.
00:17:31
No Dennis Smith, Jr.
00:17:32
You played nine guys.
00:17:34
Don't be a surprise that that ***** stays at nine guys and he always has one of those starters in the game.
00:17:45
I think from now on we need to keep one of our starters in the game.
00:17:50
Whether it is.
00:17:51
If someone's having a really good game, keep him in the game.
00:17:53
Of course you're gonna sell him out every once in a while because you got to do that.
00:17:56
This guy's got to get a break.
00:17:59
Keep somebody in the game there.
00:18:01
We need ball movement, ball movement and attack the paint.
00:18:03
Ladies and gentlemen, while the Hawks score 52.
00:18:07
4 points per game in the paint, they give up 51.
00:18:10
9 points per game in the paint s so we could score against these guys and the paint.
00:18:19
We got to utilize that right? We're gonna have bigger guards to Trey Young, maybe see if we can get Frank Millikin in a post every once in a while.
00:18:28
See if you could do something out of post.
00:18:30
Maybe he can shoot over top of train.
00:18:32
Young. Frighteningly.
00:18:33
Tina, by the way, had 13 points last night.
00:18:37
Might score them.
00:18:38
All of them just about in the first half.
00:18:40
But, hey, at their two points, I see we could take advantage.
00:18:44
Some guys in the paint, we shoot a lot of mid range jump shots.
00:18:47
The Knicks do Marcus Morris use a lot of mid range jump shots.
00:18:50
Julius Randle.
00:18:52
You know he gets to the cup, but sometimes you choose mid range jump shots.
00:18:55
Frank Miller, keen on most of his shots.
00:18:57
That made me jump shots.
00:18:59
R.
00:19:00
J.
00:19:01
Barrett sometimes pulls too many mid range jump shots, although he does go to the basket, try to bully himself in.
00:19:05
That's usually when he has success, so we need to attack the paint.
00:19:11
We need to move the ball, people move it and attack the paint, All right, also, you know these guys are, I think, 23rd in the league and allowing other teams to score on the break.
00:19:26
So we need to try to score in transition.
00:19:27
We could get the ball out the net, pushed it up the floor.
00:19:31
Get down Hill on Mike Miller talks about playing downhill.
00:19:34
Get downhill.
00:19:35
I don't know.
00:19:36
Maybe you do play Dennis Smith Jr a little bit.
00:19:38
I don't think he's gonna because of defensively, you know, he doesn't bring it.
00:19:42
And I think Mike Miller is found a comfort zone with Frank Miller, Kane and L for paving the way that he's using him.
00:19:48
So there's a lot of questions about Dennis Smith Jr.
00:19:52
Listen, Dennis Smith Jr was a happy with what was taking place in Dallas.
00:19:56
How is this going to go over with then the Smith Jr and his team.
00:19:59
I don't know.
00:20:00
Bottom line is Dennis, we're juniors.
00:20:02
Gotta bring it on both ends of the floor.
00:20:04
But you know what? We'll keep.
00:20:06
We'll keep watching that.
00:20:07
See how that's gonna go over.
00:20:11
But we gotta move the ball and attack the paint.
00:20:13
Ladies and gentlemen, those are my keys to the game.
00:20:16
That's my breakdown in the game.
00:20:17
I do it once more later on just before I get off, because I got about 15 20 more minutes and I'm gonna take a couple of phone calls.
00:20:24
Do what you guys thinking.
00:20:26
All right, Bowler.
00:20:27
You allow with nothing but Nets was popping a are you doing this? Is Kevin from playing from the jersey.
00:20:34
How you feeling That I'm good, man.
00:20:35
How are you? A pretty pretty good.
00:20:39
You know, I just want to talk about last night's game and, um what, you and, um um Gilmore and everybody was talking about that.
00:20:48
About the trade was last night.
00:20:51
Yo, I'm seeing a lot of positive, um, on the mike Miller.
00:20:57
Um, just the overall attitude of the team.
00:21:01
You haven't really seen that.
00:21:03
You know all season.
00:21:05
Um, I like the way Franken, Alfred a plane as far as the point guard, Um, it was good to see Frank hitting shots yesterday.
00:21:13
I mean, last night, Um, think Randall, along with a lot of the other ones, are just playing with a lot of more spirit control.
00:21:22
Elect waiting.
00:21:23
Mike Miller's, you know, calm the, um, time outs at, you know, at certain junctures.
00:21:28
And, um, it's just a different, you know, feel that I'm seeing is not a lot of switching on defense.
00:21:34
Um, and I think that was a lot of times they were killing field.
00:21:39
The one thing I will say last night in that game, um, in the first half, I think sometimes, um, Portis, who I like, gets to, um, to wrapped up defensively and, um what I mean, defensively, he loses a man at times, I think joined that stretch.
00:22:00
Um, he lost his man a lot.
00:22:01
And I think that's reason why you know, they was going up 20.
00:22:04
What? What do you think of that? Ah, you know, I have to really go back and look at the game and see, you know, you know, you know, breaking down and really just watch Julius Randle.
00:22:15
Um, I think for the most part, though, when they went up 20 that bench came into the game.
00:22:23
And, you know, when the bench came into the game from the about two minutes 32 or three minutes left in this in the first quarter till about nine minutes or so in the second quarter.
00:22:36
That's when you see the Nuggets really pushed that lead up.
00:22:40
You know, I don't know the bench in the job, right? And I think that, um, Portis was on, you know, on that second unit, you know, during those times and everything.
00:22:50
And, um, I just saw him losing his man a lot.
00:22:54
And, you know, I mean, it's just a nitpick, but, you know, overall, it's just a different field with this, Um, it is next team right now, and I know it's only, you know, I guess what? Five games under? Um, Mike Miller.
00:23:09
Um, I just like the result that you know, really, you know, happening.
00:23:14
And, um and as far as the trade, I agree with you and Gil Mona and everybody about you no more.
00:23:22
Um, I for one.
00:23:24
I was against trading them But what job? Saying I could see where y'all coming from.
00:23:29
I don't mind him, you know, trading him before, you know, especially to that clippers trade.
00:23:35
I wouldn't mind that happening.
00:23:37
And, um, I just think that event like him, the young, the young players really effect and can really learn from him.
00:23:48
So that's reason why I would want him, You know, a part that's Knicks organization again.
00:23:54
It comes to the contracts and everything, but, um, you know how much he's gonna be asking for.
00:23:59
So, um, but I could see where y'all coming from, and I won't mind him, you know, just so that he comes, you know, with the understanding that you know, he comes back next year and everything but again, it all depends on you know how much money he's gonna be asking for.
00:24:14
My question is, I heard a lot about you.
00:24:17
No one to trade Alonso Trias.
00:24:19
Well, my concern what that is I don't want him to go to another team.
00:24:23
He turned out to be like another.
00:24:24
You know, Williams, You know when that team just let him Do you know what he does and everything.
00:24:30
And it comes back to bite us.
00:24:31
That's my only, um, only fair.
00:24:34
What will you say to that? Yeah, um, you know, it's It's I don't know what to think about what's happening with Alonso trade.
00:24:43
He was He was a darling of the team last year.
00:24:46
Now it's like, you know, you don't hear from him or anything about his playing time.
00:24:52
He's making $3.
00:24:53
3 million this year, you know? Um, yeah, he's a restricted free.
00:24:58
You think that, You know? I mean, I don't know what it is with what It was physical, but I was hoping that, um, like, you know, find some minutes for him.
00:25:09
Everything, Um, as much as we say, Oh, you gotta play.
00:25:13
You know, defense, defense.
00:25:16
Um, I think he just needs, you know, he's the time so you can play defense anything.
00:25:21
But, um I just like one.
00:25:24
Want to see him in there just to see? I mean, we already know.
00:25:28
Unfortunately, I hate to say this, but we already know what we're getting out of, uh, Smith, Jr.
00:25:34
You might You might have to be, You know that, Um uh, the point guard that's playing right now for Golden State.
00:25:43
D'Angelo Russell is when he was first with the Lakers, you know, he wasn't, you know, doing so well.
00:25:48
And then he comes over to ah, Brooklyn.
00:25:51
And his career is, like, told you revitalized.
00:25:55
Maybe the estate that has to happen to him as well.
00:25:58
You know, you don't you don't know, but I mean, you're clear.
00:26:03
He just gets you buckets all the time, So, yeah, I mean, you know, I think I could say, you know, the only thing I could say Ah is it tells a story when you have Wayne Ellington out, right? You know? So you're down a guard and then last night and let me pull this up just so I could be sure.
00:26:29
Namie dots and only played six minutes last night.
00:26:34
Right? So it tells a story when you have one guard out and then Jamie Dotson on Lee play six minutes and Dennis with junior in a lot of trade who are both healthy.
00:26:46
Well, actually, I'm sorry, Alonso.
00:26:47
Old traer is not healthy.
00:26:49
He's dealing with a concussion protocol.
00:26:51
So it tells a story about Dennis Smith Jr.
00:26:53
We'll see what happens when Alonzo Trick gets back um, Mom, Dad? Concussion protocol.
00:27:00
Right.
00:27:01
But I want it.
00:27:02
I'm sorry.
00:27:03
How long is that? Uh, confession protocol.
00:27:05
Um, how long's it take a man? It could take from a week to two or three weeks.
00:27:11
Man, it depends on if you continue to have symptoms.
00:27:14
You know, I guess him and I forgot who it was.
00:27:16
Him and somebody smashed heads during practice, and, you know, so he's dealing with a concussion right now.
00:27:23
Okay.
00:27:24
All right.
00:27:25
So we'll see. We'll see when he gets back.
00:27:27
How? How Mike Miller uses him.
00:27:31
Okay.
00:27:32
All right.
00:27:33
Look, like I said, I I just don't want that, you know, a guy that we had, You know, um, you go somewhere else and just, you know, this goes ballistic, and then he has us in, you know, in the rear back mirror, like, yeah, I'm gonna, you know, make sure I, you know, take it to this team because they gave up on me and everything, but again, that's like that with you know what? All players know anything.
00:27:54
So that's hey, man, about it.
00:27:58
All right, man.
00:27:59
Hey, I appreciate the call and no problem again.
00:28:02
The same Steve now I know that I have been taking it easy.
00:28:11
And I'll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, it definitely tells a story when Dennis Smith Jr and you're down Alonso old tree here to a concussion protocol.
00:28:22
Wayne Ellington is out sore left Achilles.
00:28:27
And still Bennet Smith Jr didn't get off the bench.
00:28:32
That kind of lets you know where he stands right now with Mike Miller.
00:28:35
My opinion.
00:28:38
You know, bottom line that lets you know where he stands.
00:28:43
I got Mark appear in the chat.

00:29:57
What's going on, brother? How you feeling? Going.
00:29:59
Okay, Shelling man.
00:30:01
I'm telling you, I just got I just got home from work.
00:30:04
What's going on? Okay, so So So tell me what you think man was going on with two.
00:30:11
And three since Mike Miller took over.
00:30:12
We've been playing better, right? We've been blown out one time, but the Portland Trail Blazers now we go, we're gonna try to start a new streak.
00:30:18
Vs Elena Hawks.
00:30:22
Uh um, in the holiest games just blitzed out of trade on, get the ball out his hand.
00:30:28
But everyone around him score.
00:30:30
I saw a lot of teams of doing time, right now to turn right now, and it's and it's helping.
00:30:35
So what I would do is I would have I would have ah.
00:30:40
Mission, huh? And Frank Blitz, um, and pick and roll situations where he want to use the pick and roll, please.
00:30:47
As his offense, You just blitz him, get the ball in his hands.
00:30:50
He's got the balls head.
00:30:51
You'll have a chance to beat Atlanta.
00:30:52
Just don't have him masquerading around pick and roll.
00:30:55
Then he'll kill you.
00:30:56
What? It's passing, and it's scorn and just mixing up the game.
00:31:00
But, oh, I have something about have something to say about the trading deadline and everything.
00:31:09
Oh, uh, well, Marcus Morris, I want him here.
00:31:14
I don't want him here for a reason.
00:31:18
I feel you again.
00:31:21
We have young players are and with an exit.
00:31:25
Right now, we need someone that has, like, a voice in the locker room, even on the court, or even have a presence on the floor because again, we don't have, like, a transcendent talent way younger place could follow.
00:31:40
So I will consider keep, uh, Marcus Mars, depending on dependent on it.
00:31:50
If the Coopers want him, give me it covers one, because we have to give me the Hawk, this kid Jerome Robertson and 2020 21st round pick that they have.
00:32:02
I think it's unprotected.
00:32:04
If we don't get that from, I don't want to train Marcus Morris.
00:32:08
And another thing, I think all this is playing in my bolt hall went, If the sudden, the way the sun's looking out as they continue to keep growing, I'm still thinking about that Devin Booker trade.
00:32:20
So I want everybody.
00:32:24
I want you by the Children of the trading because I think with trail traer Julius Randle, Kevin knocks and then Dallas picks and probably another next pick is gonna play a big, big role.
00:32:37
And and one, these other stars just wanted to leave.
00:32:39
Sooner or later, it's gonna be I Devin Booker calls any towns.
00:32:45
I have a feeling I have a feeling we'll let me t actually trade And Devon Book is the one guy that I want badly Let me say some.
00:32:56
I've always had a feeling that Karl Anthony Towns is gonna look to get out of Minnesota sooner or later, and I have no doubt in my mind that when and if he looks to get out of Minnesota, he's definitely going to consider New York.
00:33:15
I know he's going to consider New York book office and again in this order in our great is in a great, great spot.
00:33:24
We had a great, great spot, depending on if one of those two excellent trade.
00:33:31
Because if we're if we're getting rid off young players So as I Devon book all college towns, which is gonna happen bushes that happened and getting ready to load one of those call $200 picks or maybe another.
00:33:47
I don't care if you if I get a callable talent like that, because if I get either him well, Devon book, that gives me a viable chance.
00:33:57
2021 enticing.
00:33:59
Jealous, too. Coming.
00:34:00
Plus, we'll have numerous off cat spaces around telling around those two, but it only depends on if you get my nose off the road.
00:34:12
Brights.
00:34:13
Those ain't no sonically ain't playing with your old place, so I'm looking to keep markets Mars.
00:34:18
If clippers don't give me what I want, you're wrong.
00:34:21
Robinson, Mark chocolates and 2020.
00:34:24
Other than that, I don't I want to keep Morris I want to keep everybody as a right right now.
00:34:30
So I have one of those young thoroughbreds actually trade.
00:34:34
Or if the Clippers are going to give me that package to get, uh, to take Morris the next after Dobby, the best thing could that your own Robinson kid, He can't get minutes on his Cooper's team.
00:34:45
But that kid can score the basketball, but he's a great from Trigger.
00:34:51
I think he's more.
00:34:52
He's more.
00:34:53
You could play more off the ball.
00:34:55
He's more of, ah, team score and not go a long range of scorer that can score that needs the ball.
00:35:03
You don't need the ball to school.
00:35:05
I come a lot coming out of college.
00:35:07
He was really, really, really good.
00:35:08
But he's already in the minutes on that clip of seem to really shows his talent.
00:35:13
He's just wanted your mom to CJ McCollum a lot, a lot.
00:35:17
Just you just got to get him, get his minutes to show his talent.
00:35:21
So I kind of wanna hold off on trains because ah, lot of our salary come especially for that.
00:35:26
Devin Booker, never book, is on again paying $27 million so the next one.
00:35:32
Over the next up a load, Randall Kevin knocks trail and them two first round picks, and I'll throw in a second round if they want.
00:35:40
It just gives me, Ah, young thoroughbred like those two and Dan Dan wait really happen again? Because I was watching them.
00:35:53
I was on my way home from the train and I was watching the game on the train and my milking coach from a standpoint, if he just pieces, just wasn't so mismatch.
00:36:08
Boy, if you just put a team together because the identity is there, so what he wants to do and defensively, Jesus Christ, he seems man, he got a skin going on because they're not deaf again.
00:36:25
We went down 20 and he brought it up best.
00:36:30
When? When you reason that bench that bench could fly defensively compared to the first star lineup because the Starline can't move like that could have a look.
00:36:41
We have a lot of guys that's not really fast on a not fast put it.
00:36:46
But when he breaks that second unit, if you watched game, sometimes a second, you know, always brings back into games defensively.
00:36:52
Well, in the first half, that second unit gave up the lead.
00:36:55
Well, I mean, they that bench, that second unit allowed Denver to extend it lead.
00:37:03
It was when they came in, it was like a 45 point lead.
00:37:07
Next thing you know was 15 16 point lead.
00:37:11
It was crazy.
00:37:12
We could go to think, Oh, my God, Wait.
00:37:18
The threes is clicking for him like that, but we were getting killed in the pain more than getting killed on threes in a game.
00:37:27
For some reason, it just wasn't gonna pay Beach that night.
00:37:32
But when he brought in that second unit just from a from a flying around defensively and and trying to hone and trying to hone and try to hold on the defense, it just looks better sometimes with the second unit stuff like that sometimes Sometimes I think what he has to do.
00:37:52
I think it looks best when he keeps one off stars in the game.
00:37:58
You gotta have one of those starters in the game.
00:37:59
Did it then? I think it works out now.
00:38:04
Everyone points him out because it got me tight that the other night.
00:38:09
Well, we was off three right this the shooter selection by that man about 30 ****ed me off sin.
00:38:19
What did he tell you? Three.
00:38:21
Just remember, in ticket, I left Corner three, which was not me, even though we got the shot on that same possession.
00:38:31
The late Gange, the making shooting decisions by those two.
00:38:38
Sometimes it boils my skin because I look at the offense.
00:38:46
Start the fourth quarter.
00:38:47
It was a lot of Randall Morris, Randall Morris, Randall Morris and I are two gets the ball.
00:38:53
He gets putting weird situations.
00:38:56
Well, yes, oh, foursome shots Or he goes quick cause he's no, you know, get the ball when he needs to.
00:39:04
This org cutting and not getting the ball on the dime to soar in the paint.
00:39:12
Yes, a clean at all And radio Lhasa? No, bro.
00:39:15
Stop it.
00:39:16
Every play call for you to be a superhero.
00:39:19
When games of that type, we can't win that way, and we could have that game.
00:39:25
We got game, so I want him and Morris to star.
00:39:31
Sometimes that hero ball and I know that bad selection shooting by random kills me every time.
00:39:37
I don't automatically absolve all Jake is R.
00:39:41
J.
00:39:42
has some.
00:39:43
He had some bad shots as well.
00:39:44
You can't go back.
00:39:47
Those calls were not getting the ball is not, is not always, man.
00:39:52
Sometimes, I mean, he's a bookie's entitled as bad shots.
00:39:55
But you know this and that whole team, We're taking bad shots in the fourth quarter.
00:40:01
You're saying the whole way before Last night I said, What the hell are you doing? What are you doing? You mean the whole team I look at, I look at two.
00:40:15
I feel like in that fourth quarter, frankly, Lieutenant type's gift.
00:40:19
It should have been in the game. R.
00:40:20
J was not having a good game.
00:40:21
I don't think he should have been in Yeah, someone.
00:40:25
Sometimes it's best.
00:40:26
Sometimes it's like a selection.
00:40:29
It is the same.
00:40:30
Excuse that car because I say as as much of that order, I say, Yo u had a ticket.
00:40:35
Michael, you is abysmal again.
00:40:37
Was abysmal in the fourth quarter.
00:40:39
So sometimes sometimes he has.
00:40:41
Sometimes he asks us, his substitution is at that Sometimes Sometimes I think I just feel like you said the last night.
00:40:51
Hey, you should have had You should have had Frank Lilly Kane in the fourth quarter and, he said, a bad hips in tights.
00:41:02
Gibson played five minutes of 45 seconds in the fourth quarter.
00:41:05
Frankly, Latina played five minutes of 45 seconds in the fourth quarter.
00:41:11
Sometime soon, he just robbed the guys that that just get in there.
00:41:16
And so I was hard to take out a rotation that is working for you later, but I don't R.
00:41:26
J.
00:41:27
Barrett played 12 minutes in the fourth quarter, all right.
00:41:30
He was one for five and one for four from the three point line.
00:41:34
It was by the bar.
00:41:36
But sometimes I think sometimes the kid need to feel the ball because it's more rhythm player other than give him the ball angle create from Simon.
00:41:45
Listen, when you took the second in his game and these are fast enough to create for himself.
00:41:52
So it has to be a lot of bull touching and a lot of passes coming in to feel like he's in the office a lot of home.
00:42:01
He's out of it.
00:42:02
I'll be watching him.
00:42:03
This is placed on a game look.
00:42:06
Yesterday last night, he took the second most shots in the fourth quarter.
00:42:10
He took five.
00:42:12
It took five shots in the fourth quarter.
00:42:14
All right, Julius Randle took eight.
00:42:16
It was three for eight in the fourth quarter.
00:42:19
Um, Marcus Morris was awful four in the fourth quarter and Todd's gifts in his five minutes of 45 seconds.
00:42:26
He was two or three in the fourth quarter.
00:42:28
Okay, I mean, what you say, what it is about possession, possession, how much you touched the ball within possessions.
00:42:37
I get it, but that's what I'm saying.
00:42:39
But this is look the entire second half the entire second half.
00:42:44
J.
00:42:45
Barrett took six shots in the entire second half.
00:42:48
Five No.
00:42:49
Six shots came in the fourth quarter.
00:42:50
He was getting his touches, you know, sometimes he built himself about taking it to listen.
00:42:56
I've seen two or three times when he got the ball with six or seven seconds left on the shot clock and he built himself out with three, still trying to go to the back.
00:43:05
So that way you get a ball.
00:43:10
Well, he's getting the ball in those possessions.
00:43:14
Those are those passes are coming over because either more or Randall got it.
00:43:19
I saw a lot of the shot that was predicated on a last minute shot, and you can give it to indulge.
00:43:26
You can't get a possession.
00:43:28
I see.
00:43:32
This is why I disagree, because I don't think if you get the ball with seven seconds, you got enough time.
00:43:37
There's enough time where you could still go to the cup.
00:43:40
You'll say there's enough time since it is a small four guy that can get basket every time.
00:43:48
It's not. It's not him.
00:43:50
Things like that.
00:43:53
Yes, what I'm saying, I am not making excuses for anybody on his team, including R. J.
00:43:58
Berry.
00:43:59
You don't say, and I I feel like R. J.
00:44:01
Barrett.
00:44:02
There are times when R.
00:44:03
J buried, too, has his moments where he isolates it, holds the ball or takes bad shots.
00:44:08
I'm not making excuses for anybody, and I feel like RG Barry has his times, just like anybody else.
00:44:15
You went one for five in the fourth quarter.
00:44:17
Five of those shots, one for you, one for five in the fourth quarter.
00:44:20
Most of those shots were threes, where he had a chance where he could have went to the basketball.
00:44:25
He launched a three there was one or two where, you know, he caught the ball and, you know, it was at a point in time.
00:44:33
We had a long jumper.
00:44:34
Three, but most of the time he gets the ball.
00:44:36
He has some seconds on the clock where he could go to the basket.
00:44:39
Still, I'm saying, and you know, he built itself out by shooting threes because their defense was tough.
00:44:46
So they built himself out.
00:44:47
That's what That's when I saw.
00:44:50
That's what I saw.
00:44:51
Arjun Bear did not play well last night.
00:44:53
He shouldn't even have been in and fourth quarter.
00:44:55
My opinion Mike Miller, trust him.
00:44:59
Wanna ride is young rookie.
00:45:01
I get it.
00:45:02
I understand it. You know, saying it.
00:45:04
We'll see it.
00:45:05
You know, I'm pretty sure he'll make some adjustments come the next game.
00:45:08
But, you know, I'm not making any excuses for already buried in this plate.
00:45:11
When he plays bad, he plays bad.
00:45:14
I'm saying it almost, and I'm gonna call it.
00:45:15
I'm not making excuses for Andy.
00:45:17
What's going on with you, bro? What's up, sin man? Clear.
00:45:23
I still didn't watch the game and I don't know the results.
00:45:26
Even he's going to go to a result.
00:45:29
But I saw that, you know, the that you were alive.
00:45:32
So, like, I'm gonna join in.
00:45:35
Okay.
00:45:37
Well, I'm not gonna say it was okay.
00:45:38
Then Tell them guys don't tell you the result.
00:45:41
Because I'm sure you're gonna watch the game.
00:45:43
Oh, I think it's possible even when I see more here, man.
00:45:48
It has to be bad, man.
00:45:52
But can we win versus Atlanta? I put it that way.
00:45:55
Can we win versus land if I was okay? Jules, I think this is one of the themes that we match up really good and even you know that Pray Young can have our explosive game with the truth with the with the trays and stop dying trees that three pointers.
00:46:16
I still think if we just don't switch and put Frank or 100 on him at all times, I think we can you know, this rubber there often so much that we can have a chance to get a W and that this is one of the teams that I actually think the Knicks have a pretty good chance to win.
00:46:38
Ah, and that I will be man and everything that I have to say about this.
00:46:43
This is this preview for for Atlanta Hearts.
00:46:45
I just hope that they're not gonna switch on you.
00:46:48
No one screens, and God forbid, they're gonna know.
00:46:53
Go around the screens.
00:46:55
You know, below the screens, they have to sit on Trey old.
00:46:58
I'm No, I I agree with you.
00:47:03
They got yet I agree with you.
00:47:04
They got to be on them tight, the entire gala because, um, yeah, they sent a lot of screens, betrayed young.
00:47:10
They want to get your young handling the ball in the paint and then finding guys open in the painting in those separate names.
00:47:17
So gay, they got my tactics, you know, to get no the bowler of Trey Young's hand and let everyone else try to beat us than than than Trey Young because he can get 40 50 points on the team.
00:47:29
I cost.
00:47:30
If we're gonna, you know, let him shoot.
00:47:32
So that's the thing.
00:47:33
We got it.
00:47:34
We know we got Ah, This worked off their offense by our defense.
00:47:39
No man to man known Switching, So Yeah, yeah, no, go.
00:47:44
Let me get to Ah, let me get to Karim.
00:47:48
And then because I'm gonna be getting out of here shortly.
00:47:52
But I got to get the practice myself.
00:47:53
Career was going on, man.
00:47:55
Hey, how's it going? So I'm I'm good. I'm good.
00:47:58
Tell me, um, tomorrow night, But Selena, we should get a winning.
00:48:07
I think we could pull it out.
00:48:09
Yeah.
00:48:10
You know what's so crazy about this team? Awesome.
00:48:13
And I don't know if you noticed this last night.
00:48:16
We out we we knew then what? We put ourselves in the position of Wayne as we had a very dominant third quarter thing.
00:48:25
We score like 31 points in the third quarter from that point.
00:48:29
33 points in the third.
00:48:31
Yeah, so if you notice what it came down the stretch when we took the lead and I was saying this a lot of these games that we're in is because we have players that we dominate the paint because we don't shoot well outside.
00:48:55
So what number did was they took the pain away from us, and they forced us to shoot, and we had no answer for it.
00:49:03
We could not hit the side of a barn, right? You know, So are, you know, it.
00:49:10
And you know, But, you know, we came back and who know put ourselves And you know that, um, you know, in a position and when.
00:49:20
But of course, like you said before, you know, along with a lot of other people is gotta hash on the start.
00:49:28
You know, I don't want it to where we get to this game.
00:49:30
And Trey Young is just going off when it started a horn, right, You know, And to be honest with you, man, it's like, what? Allah team this Duke within this last four games, he's proving, you know, Elka paid.
00:49:46
Now he's on the floor.
00:49:48
You know, you could kind of, like, relax, you guys, somebody that's gonna take control of the team once he has to sit down and rest.
00:49:56
We don't have another point guard that's gonna take the show like he does.
00:50:01
So then you got Barrett playing point guard, which I can't stand.
00:50:05
I don't like having Barrett played point guard either.
00:50:07
I think it takes away from the rest of his game at this point in his career.
00:50:11
At this point in his career.
00:50:13
Mmm.
00:50:14
You know, we got a lot of guys like Darry, like Knox, where we're not you utilizing them off the ball.
00:50:22
Buy Knox is and off the ballplayer.
00:50:24
We don't use him in that man.
00:50:27
So how can we do you know? Then you get success out of him. It's impossible.
00:50:34
No.
00:50:35
Es. Um, we'll see.
00:50:39
You know, we're still looking to see what Mike Miller is gonna do.
00:50:42
You know what I'm saying? How he's going to continue to use these guys.
00:50:45
Of course, we've seen some things, but we'll continue to see what Mike Miller is gonna do.
00:50:49
Uh, and how this offense out his team develops under Mike Miller.
00:50:54
I, um Listen, ladies and gentlemen, I'm about to get out of here in, like, three minutes, but before I do that, I just want to run through this little game preview real quick now to end the show and I'll let you guys get back to work.
00:51:10
I know you got a lot of stuff to finish up before you before you start getting on that train ride home or bus ride home, a car ride home, all walking home or taking a bike, a school or a skateboard.
00:51:22
Whatever you do, then explain tomorrow night.
00:51:26

00:52:07
I had the injury report.
00:52:08
Right now, there's no no injury reports for the Atlanta Hawks.
00:52:13
Kevin Hueter.
00:52:14
He was out, Would it? Shoulder, But he played Last night was the Los Angeles Lakers.
00:52:19
So I'm assuming that is going to be playing for us.
00:52:20
The Knicks, looking at the numbers behind the game.
00:52:27
Both teams are six and 21.
00:52:29
The Knicks on one game losing streak.
00:52:31
They were just on a two game winning streak.
00:52:34
They lost last night to the Denver Nuggets in a close game.
00:52:38
The average 101.
00:52:39
2 points per game.
00:52:42
They gave up 111.
00:52:43
1 points per game.
00:52:45
They shoot 42.
00:52:46
4% from the field, 34.
00:52:47
4% from three and 45.3%.
00:52:50
I'm sorry.
00:52:51
They grabbed 45.
00:52:52
3 rebounds per game, the average 20.
00:52:55
1 assists per game in 14.
00:52:57
6 turnovers per game.
00:52:59
The offensive rating is one or 2.6.
00:53:01
That study within a league defensive rating is 1 12.
00:53:04
6 That's 25th in the league.
00:53:06
The Atlanta Hawks, during a four game losing streak.
00:53:11
All right, the average 108.1 points per game.
00:53:14
They gave up 117.8 points per game.
00:53:17
They shoot 44.
00:53:18
9% from the field, 33.
00:53:19
9% from three, the average 42.
00:53:23
1 rebounds per game, 23.
00:53:25
6 assists per game and 17.
00:53:27
5 turnovers per game.
00:53:30
The offensive rating is one of 4.
00:53:31
4 that's 26th in the league, and the defensive rating is 1 13.
00:53:35
6 That's 27th in the league.
00:53:39
I have the key match up to tomorrow night's game.
00:53:44
Trey Young and, frankly, Lykina.
00:53:46
I think that's a key matchup you can add Alphabet in here as well as both of these guys is gonna have the defense.
00:53:51
Ray Young.
00:53:52
The key is to not try a young, not let a young girl crazy.
00:53:55
Not let train young killers in the paint defend Trey Young as you runs off multiple screens.
00:54:04
Younger, 611 80 Averages 27.
00:54:05
8 points per game, 4.
00:54:07
2 rebounds per game.
00:54:09
8.
00:54:10
5 assists per game on 1.
00:54:11
2 steals per game.
00:54:13
Choose 44.
00:54:14
3% from the field, 36.
00:54:15
8% from three.
00:54:17
Frankly. Latina 67 £200.
00:54:19
Guards. Last forward.
00:54:21
Six point.
00:54:22
He averaged 6.
00:54:23
1 points per game, Two rebounds a game, 3.
00:54:25
1 Insists on 1.4 steals.
00:54:28
She was 38.
00:54:29
2% from the field, 32.
00:54:30
8% from three.
00:54:32
Right now, a Keen is a good defender.
00:54:35
Yes, those nights where it doesn't play is great, you know, great defense, but he's a good defender.
00:54:41
We need to rely on Frank allocated to defend Trey young.
00:54:44
Every page is a good defender.
00:54:46
Both of these guys can defend Trey.
00:54:48
Young Young is gonna get Hayes. You know it.
00:54:51
They send them off for 1,000,000 screens, every single possession.
00:54:57
So you gotta have guys fight over those screens.
00:55:01
But why they fight over the screen, You need the person who was defending the screener to help out.
00:55:09
And then you need somebody to help out the person who was defending the screener.
00:55:13
You need someone to help out that person.
00:55:15
That's how you play it.
00:55:16
Help side defense until Franklin Latina recovers.
00:55:20
Once frankly, Latina or Elfrid Payton recovers, and everybody else can get back to that man.
00:55:25
But that's how we got to defend him.
00:55:27
And at times we gotta send screen.
00:55:30
We gotta send traps, right? Whoever is the screener, the person defending the screener.
00:55:41
You send a trap that person traps, make him pass the ball to the open.
00:55:47
You know, screener, get the ball out of his hand, make these other guys score a little bit.
00:55:54
They could score. Mean Jabbar.
00:55:55
Parker averaged 16 points per game.
00:55:57
John Collins 17 points per game.
00:55:58
I think you do is like eight or nine points per game.
00:56:03
All right, but make these guys put up some points.
00:56:08
Keys to the game.
00:56:09
Ladies and gentlemen, bring the energy.
00:56:11
We've been bringing good energy.
00:56:12
We've got to keep it up, Keep their energy coming.
00:56:16
All right, let's make it hard on Trey Young.
00:56:17
Like I said, let's trap him.
00:56:18
He scored 23 points when he played against us.
00:56:21
And, um, and the in the preseason.
00:56:26
I speak a hard on him, Trap him, all right.
00:56:30
Make it difficult for him to get into the paint or to get get off shots.
00:56:34
Whatever you do, don't go under screens against him because he's gonna knock it down.
00:56:40
All right, don't play loose.
00:56:41
Don't let him get comfortable.
00:56:43
Protect the paint.
00:56:44
The Hawks average 52.
00:56:45
4 points per game in the paint.
00:56:47
That's fourth in the league.
00:56:49
A lot of that's because train Young gets into the paint and then he This is it often facilitates.
00:56:55
I said, we gotta find a way to protect that paint.
00:56:57
When the rebounding battle.
00:56:59
When we played the Hawks in the preseason, they outrebounded us by don't Tina.
00:57:03
14 rebounds that cannot happen shouldn't happen, especially when you're not a good shooting team like we are.
00:57:12
People started in the game with the bridge, all right.
00:57:16
You always got to keep a starter in the game.
00:57:18
In my opinion, with this team, we're not good enough.
00:57:20
Our branches and good enough oh, are consistent enough to play without there being a starter in the game.
00:57:27
Julius Randle, Marcus Morris, R J. Barry.
00:57:31
Whoever is having a good game, whoever fits with the lineup keep one of those guys in the game.
00:57:36
In my opinion, we need ball movement into attack.
00:57:40
The paint.
00:57:41
The Atlanta Hawks Why, they score 52.
00:57:42
4 points per game in the paint.
00:57:44
They give up 51.
00:57:45
9 points of the game in the paint.
00:57:47
That's 27th in the league.
00:57:48
So it's there, all right.
00:57:51
We got to keep the ball moving, attacked the paint and also playing transition.
00:57:57
Atlanta's 23rd in the league and allowing of fastbreak points.
00:58:03
All right, let's try.
00:58:04
Let's try to take advantage of that Playing transition.
00:58:06
Attacked the paint.
00:58:09
Those are my keys to the game.
00:58:10
Ladies and gentlemen, those are my keys to the game.
00:58:14
And, uh, listen, we'll let you guys get up outta here.
00:58:19
You can get back to work, focus on your jobs, and I'm going to get the basketball practice.
00:58:25
All right.
00:58:26
I appreciate you guys being here with me taking a time out, but I gotta go.
00:58:32
Ladies and gentlemen, I see you guys tomorrow night after the game.
00:58:40
