It’s 2010, and the Knicks have gone into the new year at full force. The Knicks played an outstanding game against the struggling Pacers 132-89. It was an absolute domination, and with Nate back in the lineup the Knicks are beginning to look like dare I say it, playoff team?
The Knicks won the game in the 1st quarter when they dropped 38 points, compared to the Pacers pathetic 16. The Knicks dominated inside with Lee and company. Duhon also shot 6-7 from 3 as his shot continues to improve.
Also on a Nate related note; Robinson shot 2-11 and 0-5 from the 3. This is the problem with Nate, he can drop 41 points one night and 6 the next. He’s an inconsistent scorer who’s outmatched by virtually everyone on the defensive side of the floor. Sure when he’s on, he’s on but Nate is nothing special, and is not a key piece to this team’s success.
Last note I’d like to make, Larry Hughes did not play again last night and has voiced his frustration to reporters as of late about his lack of court time. Hughes is a notorious chucker, and has been replaced by Nate in the lineup. Hughes has been playing average ball all season and really hasn’t earned the right to implore the Knicks to play him. Nate can be a game changer as seen in Atlanta. Hughes is an average wingman and is gone after this season.
Knicks next game is against the Bobcats Thursday night at 730.
