2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

The Knicks luckily avoid this huge snowstorm that we’re going through (snowstorms in late March are annoying. Okay, they’re annoying any time they happen, but especially when they happen in late March) by playing in Miami. Miami is still ostensibly fighting for a playoff spot, but they’re pretty much locked in. Now it is just about avoiding playing against Toronto in the first round. Not that Boaton is much better of a matchup, of course. Hopefully Frank has another good game! Let’s go, Nick Foles, Super Bowl champion!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bulls

It is a huge game for the Knicks as they host the Chicago Bulls (or at least those that chose to come to New York), who are one game worse than the Knicks! This is a must-lose game! I’m here with my wife and holy crap, the seats in the 100 level are crazy cramped. So weird. Let’s go, Nicolas Cage!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Hornets

The Knicks host the Charlotte Hornets tonight, one of the few teams in the league who is probably in worse shape than the Knicks. Except they have a good coach, so I dunno. Anyhow, let’s hope that they can pull off another clutch loss! Let’s go, Nick Cannon!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Mavericks

The Knicks host the Mavericks in one of the most dangerous games to the tanks around, as the Mavericks are three games behind/ahead of the Knicks in the tank and losing this game would be huge for the tank. The Nets, meanwhile, are up 18-6 on the Raptors, so maybe this could be a doubly good night! Let’s go, Nick Jonas!

Yahoo! – Sources: Troy Williams agrees to two-year deal with Knicks

Isn’t it crazy how Yahoo! lost the best basketball insider in the game and still manage to have an excellent basketball insider even after Woj left? Shams is amazing. Anyhow, from Shams: The New York Knicks and forward Troy Williams have agreed to a two-year contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Williams’ deal will be guaranteed for the remainder of this season and includes partial guarantees for next season, league sources said. I’m pleased that they got this done. Granted, they’d have been in an even better position had they just done what I thought they should have done in …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Raptors

Oops, I thought that this was a 2pm start for some reason. Okay, the Knicks host the Raptors today, and the Knicks have surprisingly played them tough in the past. Luke Kornet with the start! Let’s go, Nick of Time (starring Johnny Depp)!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

The Bucks seem to sometimes play down to their opponents, so this could be a trap game! By the way, Frank Isola had an interesting article about Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who the Knicks had on their G-League team and is now on the Memphis Grizzlies. It’s interesting how there sometimes is effectively free talent that you could try out rather than spending $71 million on Tim Hardaway Jr. Let’s go, Nick at Nite!
