You know how “must-win game” is one of the most mis-used phrases in all of sports? That is true tonight, as well. This is not a “must-win” game. The Knicks can lose tonight and still make the playoffs. However, with Portland playing so poorly and having just gotten beaten badly last night and the Knicks in the midst of a six-game losing streak, if this is not a must-win game, it is certainly at least a “really would be nice to win this game” game.
This, of course, is overshadowed by the fact that this is the first game in the post-D’Antoni era for the New York Knicks. Mike Woodson takes over as the coach tonight. Let’s see what kind of offense he runs!
