2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

You know what would be a fun win? The Knicks winning tonight in Boston against the Celtics, who are 3.5 games ahead of the Knicks for second place in the Atlantic Division (man, the East is so bunched up together – the Celtics are in the #8 spot in the Conference while being just 3 games back of the #1 seed – that’s insane). The Celtics are a good team, winning with a particularly even scoring load (driven in large part by the fact that they really don’t have a go-to scorer, so everyone has to get involved). Hopefully the …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Timberwolves

Wait, the Knicks still play basketball games? It’s been so long since they last played, I wasn’t sure if the season was over. Anyhow, this should be a really fun game tonight as the two best rookies this season, Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis, face off against each other. I’d love to see them get Porzingis more involved early on. I want to see him really take it to Towns. Let’s see some real head-to-head play! I also want to see Porzingis get physical with KG because, well, come on, why wouldn’t you want that? Get in his face, KP! …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Sixers

So the Knicks are: A. home B. playing against a team that has lost 18 of their first 19 games this season C. playing against a team that has lost 18 of their first 19 games this season but won their last one, so they’re not even trying to avoid a crazy losing streak anymore D. playing against a team that suspended their #1 pick this year for two games for fighting (leading the Sixers to note, “Oh yeah, maybe we should have someone around this guy when he is out at night”). So this sure darn well better be …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Magic

Woah, I thought this was a 7:30 PM game time! Okay, so the Knicks try to rebound from a bad loss to Miami by showing that they can beat some of the feisty back-of-the-standings Eastern Conference teams, which there are suddenly a lot of. Let’s go Knicks!

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

The Knicks try to make it five in a row against a Miami Heat team that, for some reason, are miffed at the attention that Kristaps Porzingis is getting. I really don’t get it. Just shut up and play the game, Miami. Tonight would be a huge win, as not only would it be five in a row, but it would also be against a very good Miami team that is playing with a full roster, so this would be quite a statement victory. Hopefully Porzingis can outdo himself from the amazing game he had in Houston, just to hush …continue reading
