With Melo out for tonight’s game, the Knicks are lucky that they’re playing the Detroit Pistons who are missing star rookie Andre Drummond and look lost. The Spurs just beat the Pistons by something like 154 points, so hopefully the Knicks will have an easy time tonight before they begin a tough stretch of games against Western Conference teams.
Mike Woodson likely feels that the Knicks are empowered by fan outrage, so he’s decided to start Kurt Thomas at the other forward spot instead of putting Amar’e into the starting lineup. Yes, the New York Knicks in 2013 are starting James White and Kurt Thomas at the two forward spots. Hilariously awesome (or awesomely hilarious? I can’t decide).
Let’s go Knicks!
