If you had said to me last year, “The Knicks will have a better record than the defending Eastern Conference champions 24 games into the season,” I would say, “Wait, did some team get hot and play above their expected success level during the playoffs?” and you would say, “Okay, yeah, but still, pretty cool, right?” and I would agree, it is pretty cool.
The Heat have lost 7 of their last 9 games, but are 2-2 in their last four, so either they’re coming back around or they just happen to have won 2 of their last 4.
A win today would give the Knicks a shot at reaching .500 in their next game (also against the Heat, only this time in Miami). How freakin’ sweeet would it be for a Knick team to actually be .500 26 games into the season?
Also, as part of our all-poll content here at Knickberblogger, I thought you all might like to try to settle this stirring debate…
Let’s go get to almost .500 (and pretend that Derrick Rose isn’t coming here), Knicks!
