    I'm sorry but I disagree with Max. Stephen A. is right. The reason the Hawks lost was because of their defense and Derrick Rose's scoring. Max is claiming they're lucky? No, it's the Hawks that have been lucky. The Knicks have been keeping it close and fighting hard WITHOUT the scoring and passing of Julius Randle. If they ever get Randle going then this series would be over. I do think that the Knicks should add more alley oops at the rim though which could help some of their guys to get easier baskets and more trips to the line. But regardless...the only thing that is preventing the Knicks from completely destroying the Hawks is that Julius Randle is likely affected by all the new expectations on him in the playoffs. That's it. If he got 35 points, Rose gets his points and RJ gets his...that would not only open up the floor for others on the team but it would blow the game wide open. Also the Knicks players need to move better without the ball so that when Randle is double teamed, he can hit them for an open shot. They need to stop standing still and keep moving. Look at how Steph Curry shakes the defense, for instance. It only takes a moment to get open. But trust me...all the Knicks have to do is take Randle to the gym, set up some plays for him, get D. Rose to talk to him so that he's more comfortable with all of the attention...then watch as the Knicks return to the Garden with a 3-1 lead. That's all they need. The Hawks can't stop both Julius Randle and Derrick Rose.

    Max kellerman is such a douche lol. I swear I wanna punch that guys face every time I see him Of course he brings up james dolan. This guy is such a clown. James dolan must have really hurt kellerman feelings at some point B) why does he feel the need to tell knicks fans that he use to be a knicks fan... all the time. Go be the bandwagon laker fan u are nd leave us tf alone. Its almost as if hes trying to convince himself of something C) will someone tell this clown the knicks and hawks were tied at 41-31? He keeps saying the hawks are a lower seed team than the knicks as if we werent suppose to lose to them. Meanwhile, the #1 seed jazz loses at home to the #8 team grizzlies who they were 14 games better than but somehow it's some sort of armageddon that the 41-31 Knicks lost a game to the 41-31 hawks. Max kellerman gets the donkey of the year award
