Carmelo Anthony expressed his frustration as the New York Knicks lost 110-90 to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, which was their fifth straight loss at Madison Square Garden.
"We ain't playing worth a s--- right now," Anthony said. "We got to play harder.
"I am disappointed too in all of our effort. We are just not getting it done. It ain't nothing that Coach [Mike] Woodson is doing [or not doing]. It ain't got nothing to do with X's and O's out there on the basketball court. We are not getting it done from an effort standpoint. It's like we are not even trying right now."
The Knicks are playing without Tyson Chandler, who is out for at least a month with a fractured leg.
Anthony had 23 points and 12 rebounds.
"You just got to do more I guess," Anthony said. "Just try to go out there and get it done as a team. I am not going to do it by myself. I don't want to do it by myself. We got to do it as a team. We keep digging ourselves deeper and deeper.
"It's frustrating. Messed up feeling. Nasty feeling. I really am kind of at a loss for words right now."
