New York Knicks Getting Inside 2008-12-14


New York Knicks Getting Inside 2008-12-14
It's quite possible Tim Thomas would've spent a lot more time on the bench when he arrived slightly out of shape last month if the Knicks weren't so desperate for healthy bodies.

Now he might be in line for a bigger role.

Thomas isn't exactly consistent, but he's averaging 11.4 points and 3.9 rebounds since coming over from the Clippers. He got 26 points last week in New Jersey in front of the homefolks. And he's finally comfortable playing the up-tempo system he learned under Mike D'Antoni in Phoenix.

"I just got to learn to get him in the game more," the Knicks coach said. "It's my fault that he wasn't highlighted a little bit more because he arguably is our most talented player."

That might be overstating things a little.

At this point in his career, Thomas says he isn't concerned about personal statistics. There appears to be some contentment in playing a vital role for the rebuilding franchise.

"I believe in this system, and I know the kind of guys that we have and the talent that we have on this team we can get into the playoffs," Thomas said. "Once we get there, anything can happen."

KNICKS 114, KINGS 90: It reached a point where even Jerome James got a chance to run around for a couple of minutes in the fourth quarter.

And the Knicks have a road winning streak for the first time in nearly a year.

They exploited a defense that was slow to react in the first quarter, jumping in front of the stunned Kings 43-21. A perfect balance was struck. New York had eight layups or dunks, and it connected five times from behind the arc.

And it was almost easy from there.

While the pace slowed a step, the Knicks (11-12) never allowed Sacramento to go on a comeback run, and they went into the intermission with a 69-45 lead. James, who was making his season debut, wound up with two points and three rebounds in nearly four minutes.

Next up is Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni's first return visit to Phoenix.
