How many more games half as bad as today’s can Mike D’Antoni withstand before losing his job?
Jose Barea kept finding unimpeded paths on his drives to the basket, and two things became clear.
The Dallas Mavericks couldn’t be stopped, and the New York Knicks didn’t seem interested in proving otherwise.
Dallas put on a shooting clinic that crushed the Knicks’ spirits, ignoring the absence of two starters and rolling to the biggest win in franchise history with a 128-78 victory Sunday.
“They took our heart out of us,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said.
Drew Gooden stepped into the lineup with 15 points and 18 rebounds, Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry each scored 20 points, and the Mavericks beat the Knicks for the eighth straight time. Dallas shot 58 percent from the field, was 12 of 22 from beyond the arc and 16 of 17 from the foul line.
Today was the worst home loss in almost 50 years for the Knicks. Dallas hasn’t lost a game to New York since 2006.
Even after today’s embarrassing defeat, the Knicks(17-26) are no where being the worst professional basketball team in the New York City area. The New Jersey Nets who lost last night are 3-40 and are on an eleven game losing streak at present. At the moment, I don’t think the Nets will reach double figures in wins this season.
