19-6 offensive rebound margin and couldn't hit their 3's.

In other news, Mike D'Antoni said last night that the Knicks are "playing good defense".....they have the 23rd "best" opponent FG%.

I'm not paying particular attention this year. It seems the lack of pre-season and condensed schedule has led to poor shooting, sloppy play and many injuries.

Next year, with a tremendous draft class expected, the NBA is going to be awesome!

It's all window dressing for the playoffs any year. I'm interested in player and team development down the stretch particularily.

Lots of need stories to follow though.
-Bynum finally having a strong year?
-Will mavericks regain their form?
-Have the young Bulls matured enough to challenge the Heat?
-Kobe playing better than he has in a while....
-Where will Dwight Howard go? Or won't he?

bynum gets injured and misses 1/4-1/2 the season AGAIN.

mavericks stay about mid pack and get 1st round elimination (preferably to my spurs)

bulls get close but this is the year of the heat im afraid

kobe playing better then he has in the past couple of years, phil jacksons gone, coincidence?

howard stays put this year and signs with a west coast team in the summer.

Meanwhile...Knicks lose (again),Lakers get beat by Orlando and 76'edrs show they can beat a good team.

Very very intersting night in the NBA.

My take-aways:
1) Knicks are worse than I thought.
2) Bynum has been feasting off of weak opposition and double teams of other Lakers.
3) 76'ers have joined Hawks as a *scarY* eastern team.
4) Celtics are in serious trouble.
