OTHER PERSPECTIVES: Knickerblogger, KnickBlog.com, Posting and Toasting

PREVIOUSLY, THE NEW YORK KNICKS...joined the exclusive club of teams who have lost to the New Jersey Nets so far this season, leaving New Jersey 104-95 losers on Wednesday night.

The Knicks are also members of an equally exclusive club--visiting teams that have won in Philips Arena--courtesy of their 114-107 win on December 4th. Atlanta won the first meeting between the teams, 114-101 in New York on November 5th.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

Offensive execution disastrous again at the end of the game. Mike Woodson is proving his offensive ineptitude yet again. I can't take much more of this.

Also Woodson's refusal to double team Robinson makes no sense.
