The Knicks’ winning streak is now the third longest in Knicks history and they have a chance to get closer to the second longest, which was held by the Knick team that came the closest to winning a title since the Knicks’ last title in 1973, the 1993-94 Knicks. What’s amazing is that the Knicks need to win two more games in a row just to have the third longest winning streak in the NBA this season! How crazy is that?
Anyhow, this is a big game and luckily for the Knicks, the Bulls have a frontcourt that is just as banged up as the Knicks. The Bulls will be without Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson tonight. Luol Deng is a game-time decision but the Bulls are listing him as probable.
So even though Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin will both be out tonight, the Knicks should still win this one. The NBA’s leading scorer, Carmelo Anthony (feels nice to say that), will likely have another good scoring game, especially if Deng (who always does a good job hounding Melo) is out tonight. Apparently even if Deng plays, though, he’ll be on a minutes limit, which is great news for the Knicks.
Let’s go Knicks! Come on, Lucky Double Seven!
As a side note, poster ephus will be appearing on Kudlow Tonight at 7pm on CNBC. It’ll end just in time for the Knicks game, so give it a look see!
