Knicks Lose 3rd Straight

Knicks Lose to Spurs 105-93

The New York Knicks starters last night looked horrible in the first half commiting stupid turnovers. Commiting any kind of turnovers against the superior San Antonio Spurs is bound to get you in a hole, as it did. Coach Thomas went to his bench and sent a messege to his starters saying if you don't play well you won't play. He put in the lineup that consisted Mardy Collins, David Lee, Malik Rose, and Nate Robinson along with a Kelvin Cato sighting. Rookie Mardy Collins put a charge in the Knicks with several steals and playing exceptional impressing alot of people including myself. However, fatigue set in and the superior Spurs went back up by a bunch. Then came the 4th quarter when Stephon Marbury scored 9 in a 20-2 run that pulled them within 1 point, but the Knicks would still come up short. Steph then missed a 3 and Renaldo Balkman missed two key free throws that were followed by a Tony Parker jumper(he is the luckiest man for getting with Eva by far) this put the Spurs up for good. I am one who does not believe in moral victories but if there is one it was last night. Malik Rose held "The Big Fundemental" Tim Duncan to just 15 points. Steve Francis went down in the 1st quarter with an ankle injury coming down hard on Bruce Bowen's foot after nailing a jumper in his face. He would tough it out for the rest of the half then he was not seen for the second half at all(his status is still uncertain). Alot of Knicks fans are already giving up on the season and that's just ridiculous, its the 4th game of an 82 game season(did u really excpect them to beat San Antonio?). The team showed signs of life, Isiah showed he is not scared to bench the starters and Stephon finally stepped up down the stretch. I'm sticking with my predicition as the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference this season.
