Oakland, Ca – As the New York Knicks head into tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors, some question arise about their head coach Mike Woodson’s decisions regarding his rotation as of late. With the injuries to Amare Stoudemire and the day to day Carmelo Anthony, there were some key decisions that were made that may have haltered the presumptuous set backs.
For one, why didn’t Woodson take Anthony out of the Cleveland game when he complained of knee soreness and the Knicks were trailing by a huge margin? According to team sources, Melo had been having an issue with the knee for several weeks. Was Amare playing too many minutes based off his injury?If the Knicks fall down to the 6 seed and are eliminated in the first round, does Woodson get fired? I am not trying to answer these questions but relatively speaking they are something for Knicks Management to consider if these scenarios do play out.
The true test and perhaps answers come tonight when the Knicks face the Golden State Warriors who they defeated lass than two weeks again amidst a 54 point career high from Stephen Curry. The difference this go around may be former Knick David Lee, who has been dealing with injuries himself. Stay tuned.
