Knicks-Bulls Christmas Day 2010

Merry Christmas to all. This is the best time of year, family, friends, food, drink and the Christmas Day, Knicks-Bulls game, from the Garden, actually meaning something. I remember going to one of these Christmas games back in the 70s.

Like I have been saying for weeks, win or lose the Knicks are entertaining. Today was no different, the pick and rolls to Stoudemire, the blocked shots by the Knicks and the exciting hustle of Landry Fields. Even watching the game on ESPN, I could feel the excitement of the Garden crowd.

The Knicks went on to defeat the Bulls in a game that showed just how good the Knicks can be. They should of been up by a lot more with their three point shooting and points off of transition but the Bulls kept it close by pulling down a ton of offensive rebounds.
Today the Knicks gave it's fans something that we don't see very much, defense. The Knicks are the highest scoring team but they rank 28th in defense, so from all Knicks fans, thanks for the Christmas gift.

I know, Noah was not playing for the Bulls, but the way the Knicks were playing, especially on defense, I don't know if the outcome would of been that much different. The Knicks look like they are having the time of their lives. Felton and Stoudemire are both playing well together. Chandler and Fields just kill you silently and when Williams comes off the bench, he definitely spreads the defense with his ability to hit from everywhere. The addition of Turiaf has been huge.

This is all where it starts, piece by piece, step by step. The Knicks of the 90s didn't just spring up over night. Let's have patience and let's have fun. As Marv Albert used to say, "YES!!!!!"
