Betting Site: J.R. Smith is in a state of panic

J.R. Smith said that he is panicking and that the New York Knicks are mentally “frustrated” after losing their fourth consecutive game, and betting sites are wondering if this trend will go on.
Pay per head services saw that at Madison Square Garden, the Knicks’ 103-96 overtime defeat on Wednesday to the Indiana Pacers was their sixth consecutive loss, concerning many fans, especially those with a betting shop.
“We’re frustrated,” Smith said of where the Knicks are mentally, even though most say that it’s too early to panic. “Like you say, it’s too early to panic, but me, personally, I’m panicking. I don’t like this.
“I don’t want to play 3-8 basketball,” Smith added, regarding the Knicks’ record. “I don’t want to play 50-50 basketball. If we’re going to be a championship-caliber team and call ourselves that, then we’ve gotta play like that. It can’t be no other way.”
Pay per head services and betting sites saw that on Wednesday, the Knicks played hard and put forth the type of effort that coach Mike Woodson wants to see regularly. The Knicks at times put forth a dull effort in several of their past home losses, disappointing many people with a betting shop that follow the team.
“I’m proud of how we competed,” Woodson said. “That’s something I hadn’t seen a lot this early season, and that was New York Knick basketball. Unfortunately we’re a little snake-bitten right now in terms of getting over the hump.”
Betting sites know that the Knicks are 2-5 since they lost Tyson Chandler due to a fractured right fibula. Carmelo Anthony had 18 rebounds and 30 points, and with 9.2 seconds left, the Knicks were leading by three.
But Iman Shumpert was called for a foul on a 3-point attempt by Paul George, and betting sites saw that all three free throws were made by the player (35 points) to force overtime.
On Wednesday night, the Knicks put forth effort, but this season it hasn’t always been there. And price per head services could see that for Smith, that was frustrating.

“Lack of intensity,” Smith said. “I hate to say it, but our defense’s backbone is on Tyson, and Tyson’s not here right now.
And we know that, and he’s not going to be available for a few weeks now, so we’ve gotta step it up individually. It’s a team game, but individually we’ve got to take pride in guarding the ball, guarding our man. We have to enjoy stopping the other team.”
