Recap #75: Golden State Warriors 128, New York Knicks 117 - Anthony Morrow + Reggie Williams = Undrafted Dubs for the win!

UPDATE (2:55pm): Make sure to check out more good words over at Fear the Beard in Because you never know what's going to happen, that's why.

---------------------

For tonight's shootout I was accompanied by my man DT from the almighty Fear the Beard. We were tossing around over/under for tonight's game at 280 and 300. We didn't quite attain that level of Nellieball and Seven Seconds or Less, but that's just fine.

Just fine indeed.

Why? Because we got...

Knicks 117, Warriors 128: "We are making the Warriors look like the Showtime Lakers."

JUMP- but not like you're jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge!

New York, New York

Let me get this out of the way. I LOVE me some New York.

Fine-art Friday: the art of agitation. [Fear the Beard]

DT always got the (as they say in NY) illest threads!

There's only really two places worth living in in the continental United States. The Bay Area and New York. Miami ain't so bad either, but honestly Miami probably already hit its peak with the first Bad Boys in 1995.

Not those bad boys!

Even CSI Miami and Horatio probably peaked last season. (They're still very good though.) So that leaves us with the Bay Area and New York.

30 Wins or Less without Amare Stoudemire, Shawn Marion, and Steve Nash.

Broadway comes to the Roaracle:

  • Poor David Lee. How do you put up 37 points, swallow 20 rebounds, and drop 10 dimes and not win? Lee is an All-Star. He's Troy Murphy on steroids. He's a game changer. He's a keeper. If Donnie Walsh and Mike D'antoni are foolish enough to let him go this summer, then let's hope the Dubs get creative (okay who am I kidding?) and snatch him up. David Lee is the man. This cannot be disputed.
  • Milk Carton: Tracy McGrady. Seriously who is this imposter and what have you done with the real T-Mac? Quite frankly (and keep in mind I'm a HUGE McGrady fan) I don't think he's anything more than a 10th-12th man in this league at this point. I really, really hate to say it, but right now his name is bigger than his game. PLEASE prove me wrong man.

I have no idea who this is.

Bill Walker is visibly upset after not being tonight's Warrior Killer.

Hey, it can happen to anyone on any given night.



From New York to the Bay!

  • Stephen Curry struggled shooting the rock, but you'll get no complaints from me about his performance tonight. His passing, capped with a crazy-phat-stoopid-dope (more mid-90's NY love) behind the back left-handed pass to Corey Maggette on a fast break for any easy dunk, was simply incredible tonight. The best part was the 5:1 assist to turnover ratio (which I harped on in the last against the Utah Jazz). Phenomenal job steering the ship tonigh Kid Curry- or should I say Captain Curry?
  • Ronny Turiaf almost single-handedly brought the house down tonight in the first quarter. His 5 monster swats and 2 rim shaking dunks (which probably should have been called T's for hanging on the rim) were just powerful. Turiaf has had a sub-mediocre season and the injuries haven't helped, but I really dug his energy tonight. It got EVERYONE excited. I think it even made LeBron James more excited to ditch the midwest for the bright NY city lights too.

The timing on the high fives isn't always there for the fellas, but the effort is ALWAYS there.

I can appreciate that.

  • Anthony Tolliver and Devean George chipped in some solid minutes tonight. Can't knock the hustle.
  • REG-GIE! REG-GIE! REG-GIE! It's simply uncanny how he just keeps scoring the ball at a ridiculous rate. 11 for 13 overall for 23 points? Thankyouverymuch.

Back-2-back games for the man we all love. My WW goes to Anthony Morrow and his 35 points. AMMO's scoring was so multi-faceted today that I don't even know where to begin. From downtown, taking NYK's to whole, posting them up, putting up a floater on a fast break where he was the centerpiece = MONEY.

Pick your poison.

Is it just me or every time it's my turn to handle the post-game coverage AMMO goes Chocolate Rain? I'm the best thing to happen to him since the Knicks' defense!

Anthony Morrow on helping Warriors head coach Don Nelson get the coaching wins record: [AP]:

"I just want to be able to do that for him," Morrow said. "He gave me a chance in this league. I want to be a part of history."

Yes, players really don't like Nellie. (sarcasm for the haters)

 

PS: LeBron go 2 NY. Life will be good. Just ask Akeem.
