A little while back, I noted that the Knicks still surprisingly had a shot at making the playoffs, due to the Hawks seemingly willing themselves to fall out of the playoffs and the Cavs and the Pistons being possibly even worse than the Knicks. My pal Fabian pointed out to me, “These games strike me as near certain losses: @CLE (similar quality team, on the road, they have a good PG),” to which I replied, regarding Cleveland, “And sure, if the Knicks can’t beat Cleveland then they’re not going to make the playoffs, but that’s the rub, ya know? The last time the Knicks played the Cavs the Knicks destroyed them. So I don’t think it is fair to say one way or the other regarding their chances with the Cavs. We’ll just have to see how they do.”
So, well, tonight is when we find out.
Let’s go Knicks!
