2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Kings

The Knicks begin a five-game, ten-day (thank goodness for no back-to-backs!) road trip tonight in Sacramento. Sacramento is not particularly good, but the Knicks will be without the services of Derrick Rose tonight. The way that this roster is set up, with Sasha Vujacic as the only other point guard that Jeff Hornacek will give any real minutes to, an injury to either Rose or Brandon Jennings is really devastating, as, again, Sasha Vujacic is the only other point guard that Jeff Hornacek will give any real minutes to. I don’t even mean that in a “Oh man, give Ron …continue reading

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
