Woodson Considers Resting His Players
With eight minutes to go in the fourth quarter and his Knicks down by 18 points in Cleveland, Mike Woodson was all set to put Carmelo Anthony back into the game. After all, that’s normally how his rotation works.
Then common sense took over.
“I just said, ‘No,’ because I’m thinking about down the road and this is seven games in 11 days for us and maybe they are tired,” Woodson said. “But that‘s not an excuse.”
No, it’s just the reality of winding down a condensed 66-game lockout season.
