Since Mike D'Antoni's departure, the Knicks have been able to win by embracing his philosophy.
The ball has been moving; Carmelo Anthony hasn't forced the action and complete unselfishness has been displayed.
However, whether or not that lasts is up to Anthony.
Mike Woodson's plan was to run the offense through his superstars, but over the past three games, the ball has been spread around; Anthony has taken no more than 13 shots over the recent winning streak.
Anthony has always been a volume scorer, though, and may not be amenable to sacrificing his stat lines moving forward.
However, if isolation plays become more prevalent, players like Jeremy Lin, Landry Fields and Steve Novak will fall out of sync as a result.
It's up to Woodson to either continue to preach ball movement to Anthony or find a way to play to the forward's strengths without isolating—pun intended—the rest of the team.
