Knicks Win 3 O.T. Thriller

In a game that should have been put away in regulation (with the Knicks blowing a 19 point lead) the Knicks pull out game 1 of the regular season 118-117 in triple overtime. New York couldn't put away the pesky Grizzlies who outscored the Knicks 29-18 in the 4th quarter to overcome the huge 19 point deficit. Jamal Crawford missed 3 potential game winning shots one at the end of the 4th quarter, one at the end of the 1st overtime and one at the end of the second one. Crawford had a horrible shooting night going 4-22 from the field but Isiah kept giving him the ball in crunch time. He would redeem himself by picking Chucky Atkins' pocket and feeding Q-Rich, which lead to Richardson getting fouled, and he would hit the game winning free throws. Richardson with an impressive line 10-13 from the field 6-6 from the line with 31 points and 9 rebounds while playing a ridiculous 57 minns. All the Knicks seemed together, even when Francis, then Marbury, and then in the 3rd OT Eddy Curry(17 pts 14 rbs) fouled out, they overcame it as a TEAM. The only sour spot was the horrible play of Channing Frye. Frye was putting up 3 pointers it seemed left and right. He just did not look himself, all and all a bad performance hopfully he bounces back. Overall, even if this game should have been over long before it ended the final result, a tally in the win column for the New York Knicks.

Still not impressed.........They won a game by 1 that they should have won by 20. Stevie Francis has to go. I think isiah can do something with this team but hes gonna need a miracle.

taking a word from former Jets and now Kansas City Chiefs football coach Herman Edwards, "YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME.....HELLOOO" and thats what they did AND they won. Who cares if it was in regulation or 12 OTS they won, after a season like last year it doesnt matter as long as they get that W. Steve Francis wont play like this all season but if he does your right he has to go but P.S. nobodys gonna take him if he plays this crappy so my advice cheer for him learn to love him, dont try and A-Rod him already, just give the former ALL-STAR a shot. He hasnt even played a full season as a Knick yet.

I was extremely frustrated in the 4th quarter when we lost that dam 19pt lead. I decided to get my Allan Houston jersey out of Retire ment to wear it for this game. Maybe to give us luck. But I loved the play in the 3 OTs.
Only 3 bad thinga about the game.
1. 23 turnovers
2. blowing a 19pt lead in 4th
3. Channing Frye sucking badly. Whats with the 2 3pt attempts, He had 3 attempts but the 3rd on, which he made, was after a foul therefor didn't count.
4pts, 4reb and 4fouls in 32mins is not good. However he did get a steal and a block so thats good.

visit and listen to my "podcast" or audio review of this game!
