03:28 PM ET 05.13 | Knicks star Carmelo Anthony said Monday he didn't want to get into a back-and-forth with Tyson Chandler after the center ripped his teammates for poor ball movement in the team's Game 3 loss to the Indiana Pacers. The volume shooter that he is, Anthony added that he didn't know what Chandler was talking about. After all, coach Mike Woodson said that the Knicks must do a better job of executing to get his All-Star forward more looks. Anthony said they'll deal with Chandler's comments internally, and Woodson even praised Chandler's criticism to a degree. "I don't get mad at things like that," Woodson said. "When there's bickering among each other it's pretty healthy but I don't mean to call it bickering. It's being a good teammate."

And players showed their unity by not attending practice. JR, KMart, and Shumpert didn't show up for practice today...

Guys... ur only down 2 -1. No need to discombulate... get together.. .focus and win one game.. just one game. Coach needs to make some adjustments.

This is the time to move Melo to 3 and start Kenyon Martin along with Chandler...

The Knicks are better than the Pacers. They just need to start playing the way they did to get them here.

Yeah. The Knicks are definitely the better team. If they can get to 85-90 points, they will win these games.

Perhaps they are, but the Knicks will have to be a willing participant if that is to happen. And if they do that they deserve to lose the series. It'd be a shame too since Indiana is not as talented as the Knicks and NOBODY wants to watch a Heat/Pacers ECF except for Heat fans who want to see an absolute massacre of a swept series.

If Stern knows where his bread is buttered he'd better pass the word down to the refs.

Am hearing some interviews where they are saying that the pacers have 'outworked ' them. Not sure how in the 2nd round of the playoffs that is possible. I think they think that they will just turn it on....not a good plan

I hate to use the MJ Bulls as an example, since I hate when other people do it, but they were truly an example in a lot of ways. For instance, you never saw them turn it off and on. They came to beat your head in every single night. They didn't care what your record was. You could be a contender or a scrub lottery team. They were intense and wanted to win EVERY NIGHT.

I agree with you 100%. The Knicks cannot think they are going to turn it on when they need to. They aren't that good. They need to play every game like its an elimination game. Because if they don't they will be eliminated.

LMFAO. This job is totally over Woody's head. You just called it bickering in the same **** sentence and then you're saying didn't mean to call it.
