2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Lakers

The Knicks go for their first two-game road winning streak if the season as they head to Los Angeles to play the Lakers this afternoon. The Lakers are playing without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram is a game-time decision. That shapes up well for the Knicks.

I forgot that the Knicks signed Isaiah Hicks to their two-way contract and not Hayes. Oh well, Hicks has been playing even better than Hayes, so there’s no …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Grizzlies

The Knicks head to Memphis on the second game of their seven-game/two-week long road trip. Luckily for the Knicks, both Memphis centers, Marc Gasol and Brandon Wright, are out tonight due to illness (I hope it is not Consumption. La bohème let me know that that stuff is dangerous as heck). So this really should be both the first Knick winning streak in quite a while but their first road winning streak period this season. How pathetic is that? This is the Knicks, so you know they’re going to make a run at the #9 seed, so this is likely …continue reading
