2015-16 Recap: Knicks 108, Pistons 96

Well, that makes three games in a row I’ve decided to write about that the Knicks have won, which makes me a happy writer. I think everyone else on the staff can agree that it’s a lot more fun to write about (and for all of you who read our ramblings, to read about) a win than a loss. I’d pat myself on the back for being a good luck charm, but the truth is… Oh, what am I saying, humility isn’t one of my strong suits, I’m patting myself on the back profusely. We all know my decision …continue reading

2015-2016 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pistons

We’re 4 games into the 10-game stretch of death I referenced the last time I wrote a game recap, and it has gone about as badly as could be expected. I honestly thought the home game against Orlando was a winnable one, and though the Knicks played the Hawks well for about 20 minutes, they ended up getting landslided in the tradition of Fleetwood Mac in that game. They made a nice run in Boston to make it a sweat for the Celtics, but missed some open shots in the last few minutes that could have made it a winnable …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

You know what would be a fun win? The Knicks winning tonight in Boston against the Celtics, who are 3.5 games ahead of the Knicks for second place in the Atlantic Division (man, the East is so bunched up together – the Celtics are in the #8 spot in the Conference while being just 3 games back of the #1 seed – that’s insane). The Celtics are a good team, winning with a particularly even scoring load (driven in large part by the fact that they really don’t have a go-to scorer, so everyone has to get involved). Hopefully the …continue reading
