December 7, 2006 -- It took 21 games, but "Fire Thomas" and "Fire Isiah" chants rang out in the final Garden minutes last night.

There was one chant of "Fire Isiah, We want Herb," as in assistant Herb Williams, and one brief song of "Fire Dolan" at the buzzer in the most vicious Garden display this season.

But owner James Dolan was not in the sparsely populated house to hear all the venom.

The chanting began in earnest with 2:04 left during a timeout - a loud 30-second "Fire Isiah" chant. It was followed by sporadic ones until the final buzzer. As the last sad seconds ticked off the clock, the boos punctuated this disgraceful, inexcusable 113-102 blowout loss to the previously winless-on-the-road Wizards.

The Knicks, falling to 2-8 at home, earned all their boos in allowing Washington to nail a franchise-tying record of 14 of 20 3-pointers and shred them for 65 points by halftime and 99 after three quarters.

The Wizards were 0-8 on the road before the Knicks' hospitality, before Gilbert Arenas became an unstoppable force (38 points, 6 of 9 from 3-point land) and Antawn Jamison became equally dangerous with 33 points, 6 of 8 on 3-pointers.

Stephon Marbury, Steve Francis and Quentin Richardson were awful defensively.

Yet afterward, Thomas' message to his players and fans was: Don't blame us. Shockingly, Thomas wasn't outraged by this despicable defensive showing, praising Washington's sizzling shooting.

"I don't fault our guys' effort," said Thomas - whose job, sources indicated, is safe at least until Jared Jeffries and Channing Frye return from injury.

"Some nights other teams play better than you. And you have to take the whupping."

As he walked off the court, Thomas pointed to the players and had a message. "I told them to keep their heads up, don't walk off with your heads down. That team we lost to played a helluva basketball game."

Said Eddy Curry, "He said just don't pay attention to the boos."

Thomas, referring to the Garden's sparse crowds, said beforehand, "Our job is to win the doubters." The Knick doubters grew exponentially, along with the 3-point baskets.

The Knicks (7-14) played sloppily, stupidly and looked outclassed. They are 1-2 on this critical six-game homestand. Thomas did not have them prepared days after guaranteeing they'd turn around their Garden woes.

"Antawn and Arenas get paid a lot of money, they were good tonight," Thomas said.

The Knicks get paid more than any other team in the league. And they stunk. This was a team the Knicks beat at the Garden back on Nov. 15. So they're regressing. Incredibly, Washington shot 0 for 15 from the 3-point line in scoring 82 points on Nov. 15.

Washington passed its game total of the last game (82) on another Arenas 3-pointer with 6:39 left in the third.

The defining moment came when Arenas, faking a drive, hit a 3-pointer 4:23 into the second half, over Stephon Marbury, who was befuddled all night. Arenas strutted downcourt, boos rained down and Thomas called time as Washington's lead ballooned to 92-71.

Arenas finished with 24 points by the half, topping his 22-point total in the first meeting. Washington shot 70 percent in the first quarter and 57.1 at intermission in building a 66-55 lead.

"Fans fare fans, they'll do their thing," Thomas said of the hostile reaction. "They were disappointed like we were disappointed."

For the second straight game, the Garden contained several sections in the 300 and 400 levels that were completely barren. The Knicks announced 16,272.

Thomas, who a day earlier got testy with reporters over his lineup, wore a disarming smile in the morning. He stated the fans had every right not to fill the Garden in droves.

"They had every right to be hurt," Thomas said. "We were all hurt. You guys covering the team were hurt. Last year was a year unlike any other. We have some doubters. Our job is to win the doubters. They're still in a 'wait and see - show me' that has every right to be 'wait and see - show me.' "

They showed only that their perimeter defense could be as bad as any team, allowing Washington to hit 11 of its first 14 shots. Thomas can't wait for Jeffries, the ex-Wizard, to make his debut, perhaps Monday.

Marbury (5 of 15) had a rough shooting night. After one wide-open 3-point miss, Marbury shouted "[bleep!]" summing up the evening.


the world's most famous arena...

The Knicks, Memphis and the Charlotte Babka better get hot.
There's a XXXL green shirt with the name "Oden" on the back waiting to be filled on Causeway Street.

The intentional tanking failed when the Celts lost the Tim Duncan lottery. It best not fail this year.

Lots of difficult to disprove injuries on Causeway these days.
Keep it up (or down as the case may be) boys.

That was an amazing game. Kidd is amazing. Steve Nash is a god.

The over/under was 317.5

Ok actually 210.5, I didn't touch the game. Did have Under 191 in the Pissed-ons/Mavs though.

Why on earth did 76ers chariman Ed Snider announce that Allen Iverson asked to be traded? Way to hurt your leverage.
