Maybe the Lakers should do the same thing. D'Antoni only having the team practicing team defense for a half hour isn't enough.

Defense also has to do with the chemistry of knowing the defensive tendencies of you teammates. They've only now seemed to get used to the fact that Dwight is going to contest every shot and were playing the passing lanes yesterday more so when they knew the foe would pass it off, they also seem to foul less when leading someone to Dwight for a block.

Dwight said it best they need to get used to each other's tendencies on the defensive end.

And a lot of what we're going to need to solve is our turnover problem which is where a lot of opponents points come from.

But Mike Woodson's system looks like it focuses on defense, and you could say that, but the truth is, they get good shots and are able to get back on defense and understand the tendencies of their teammates defensively and it's tellable.

But when they are missing their shots and long rebounds or turning over the ball they look as prone to be scored on as we do.

They are more refined and have had more time together and basically played in D'antoni's system for 2 years so Woodson can focus mostly all of his time on the defensive side of things. It shows. We however, have not had that kind of time.

Woodson was already there teaching defense too. The problem with the Knicks was Amar'e in the starting lineup, being that he isn't really a stretch four or very versatile if you stick him anywhere but center, it hurt their productivity and shrunk the floor more and ruined their spacing.

This is why Woodson is going to bring Amar'e off the bench. And that is why the Knicks played better last year when Amar'e was out.
