I don’t believe Mike Woodson, because who else is he going to turn to at this stage of the season? The Knicks can’t have Melo shooting 40 times a game and they don’t have a lot of players who can create their own shot. They are going to have to live or die by JR Smith’s shooting. Woodson on J.R. Smith, who’s 7-for-30 in the last 2 games: ‘If he’s struggling and I feel the need (to) pull him, I’ll turn to someone else’ — Ian Begley (@IanBegley) May 8, 2013 My suggestion is bring Rihanna to practice, can’t hurt at this point.
