2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Jazz

Rudy Gobert returns for the Jazz tonight as they host the Knicks on national television. That is not a good thing for the Knicks, but hey, this team makes no sense, watch them do really well against the Jazz even with Gobert. Let’s go? Knicks?

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Grizzlies

The Knicks head to Memphis on the second game of their seven-game/two-week long road trip. Luckily for the Knicks, both Memphis centers, Marc Gasol and Brandon Wright, are out tonight due to illness (I hope it is not Consumption. La bohème let me know that that stuff is dangerous as heck). So this really should be both the first Knick winning streak in quite a while but their first road winning streak period this season. How pathetic is that? This is the Knicks, so you know they’re going to make a run at the #9 seed, so this is likely …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Nets

The Great “Oh, We Get To Host the Grammys? Fuck the Knicks, Then!” Road Trip of 2018 begins today with a short trip to Brooklyn for the first MLK Day Game not at the Garden in thirty years. It’s annoying, but hey, I guess hosting the Grammys is a huge get for MSG. If it goes well, though, does that mean that that they’ll skip MLK Day games at the Garden going forward? That would suck. Anyhow, the Knicks host the Nets in a game that would be very helpful for the Knicks to lose, considering draft position, but don’t …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pelicans

Well, the Knicks beat the Pelicans on the road and the Knicks are terrible on the road (and they have Hardaway back), so you have to like their chances this afternoon. Trey Burke is officially a Knick (contract details unclear – let’s hope they got an option for next year). I don’t know if he’ll play today. Let’s go, Knicks!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Timberwolves

The Knicks travel to Minnesota to take on the absurdly overworked Timberwolves (Thibs has got to get a new shtick – this whole “play everyone a gazillion minutes during the regular season” one has grown, quite literally, tiring) in a battle of the “Guy from the 2015 Draft that you want in November” vs. “Guy from the 2015 Draft that you want in every other month.” Let’s hope that KP, though, wins that battle tonight. Tim Hardaway Jr. returns tonight, so the Knicks might actually surprise some people tonight. Hardaway will be coming off of the bench in his first …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Mavericks

Well, this is the best test for how bad the Knicks are on the road. The Mavericks are not a good team, so if the Knicks can’t beat them, that would be very embarrassing. Of course, the annoying thing is going to be the constant comparison between Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina, where Smith will get waaaaaay too much credit for his pointz. Let’s go, Knicks!
