2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavs

I know people are already writing this one off because Lebron is angry over Phil being a dick, but I really think that the Knicks have a chance tonight. Yes, Lebron will play angry, but who is to say that that means he’ll play better? Lebron gives it his all every time he comes to New York. I don’t see how he’s going to give extra greatness tonight. And, as we’ve seen before, this team tends to play to their opponents. They let the shitty teams like Minnesota keep it close, but they also kept it close themselves against Toronto. …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

Big game for the Knickerbockers tonight, as they head to Miami to play a decent but not practically good Miami team ahead of a game the next day against Cleveland. They win tonight, and they will be over .500 no matter what happens in the Cleveland game. So let’s hope that they win tonight. Miami is a good defensive team, but an ugly offensive team. Winslow, one of their better defenders and one of their worst offensive players, is out tonight. Carmelo Anthony will likely be happy about that, as Winslow has played him tough in the past. If this …continue reading

Before Sunday night’s game, Hornacek spoke about the Knicks’ need to finish and step on opponents’ throats which sort of became a theme when the Knicks let a 21-point lead get whittled to one before winning. But earlier in the day, he told his wife he believed Brandon Jennings would have a… [NYPost] Carmelo …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Kings

The Knicks continue a nice string of winnable games with tonight’s matchup at home against the Sacramento Kings. The Kings are not a terrible team, but nor are they particularly good. It will be fun to watch Boogie Cousins play, though! Joakim Noah practiced in full today, so I suspect he’ll play. It would be great to see him play in an actual win for a change. Let’s go, Knicks!
