Mike Woodson won’t point the finger at point-guard play for the Knicks’ struggles.
Raymond Felton shot 1-for-7, had three points and seven assists during Monday’s terrible 101-98 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Pablo Prigioni also only had three points. Both Knicks point guards did not commit any turnovers. But defensively, Felton gave up a backdoor layup to Brandon Knight and Knight’s game-winning 3-pointer came over Felton, all in the final 27 seconds. Knight finished with 25 points.
“I’m not pointing the fingers at anybody,” Woodson said. “If I’m going to point it at anybody, I’ll always point it at myself first as the coach, because I feel like I can take any team, any five guys and win with. That’s just how I feel as a coach.”
Woodson said there’s more to blame than just the Knicks’ point guards, who have come under fire from critics and fans.
The Knicks have been receiving mediocre play from the point guard position all season and could ultimately be the team's downfall the rest of the way. Unless Felton and the other ball handlers improve, the Knicks don't stand a chance with the playoffs only two months away. In terms of fantasy, outside of Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith and Tyson Chandler, the Knicks don't offer much value moving forward.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
