Knicks Remain Perfect, Shut Down Mavs in Second Half
Final Score: Knicks 104, Mavs 94
Record: 4-0 (1st in Atlantic, 1st in Eastern Conference)
Current Streak: Won 4
Chippy game. Ugly game.
Looked pretty so so in the first half as OJ Mayo was doing whatever he wanted out there. Second half? Completely different story.
4-0 feels nice… real nice.
- Marcus Camby - Did some spot duty here and there. Looks like he took Kurt Thomas’ minutes. I guess Woodson is just going use them both as needed depending on the game. Both should see their minutes reduced when Amar’e gets back though… or Wallace - all of them can’t play.
- OJ Mayo - ha, damnit… great game by him. Bittersweet I guess. Went cold in the second half though.
- Former Mavs - JKidd didn’t have much of a game, but Tyson Chandler definitely did. What about that dunk, huh?
- Defense - first half the defense didn’t look so great. The Knicks weren’t rotating or closing out on guys nearly as well as they were the first three games. That changed in the second where NYK ended up holding the Mavs to only 37 points (they had 57 in the first half). It’s starting to remind me of 90’s style defense. No easy layups, hard fouls.
