WAS CHANDLER RIGHT?Tyson Chandler called out the Knicks for playing too much one-on-one basketball in Game 3. The offense was stagnant again in Game 4, but ball movement wasn't entirely to blame. It had more to do with an inability to make shots.
The Knicks went 8-for-28 from beyond the arc but were 4-for-20 entering the fourth. They went 3-for-11 in Game 3. The team relied heavily on 3-point shooting to generate offense all season, and it hasn't been there when they needed it in the past two games.
J.R. Smith struggled from the field. He was 2-for-12 through three quarters and finished the game 7-for-22, including a miss from point-blank range with 25 seconds to play.
The Knicks also didn't get much from Iman Shumpert. Shumpert, playing through soreness in his left knee, finished 0-for-6 from the field in 16 minutes.
BIGGER LINEUP, SIMILAR RESULTS: Mike Woodson went with a bigger starting five in an effort to control the boards. It didn't work well.
Amar'e Stoudemire had four points, four rebounds and four fouls in 11 minutes in his second game back since undergoing knee surgery March 11.
YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME:Jason Kidd's shooting woes continue. He finished 0-for-2 and missed a fast-break layup. Kidd entered play Tuesday scoreless in his previous seven games and missed his previous 14 shots. Kidd played 16 minutes. Prigioni played just three.
WHAT'S NEXT: The Knicks will travel home and prepare to play Indiana in Game 5 at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.
