Pluses for the Knicks tonight – they’re terrible, the Heat are not terrible and the game is in Miami. Negatives for the Knicks tonight – the Heat are not that good and it is hard to win both ends of a home and home. Let’s hope that the Heat pull it out! The #4 spot in the draft is still up for grabs! Let’s? Go Knicks!
This is an interesting back-to-back matchup for the Knicks, as it is hard for mediocre teams to win both ends of a home and home, but I think that the Knicks can slump to the occasion and pull out an important pair of losses here. The Knicks have no answer for Dragic or Whiteside, so this should be a loss, but we shall see! Let’s? Go Knicks!
This is one of the tougher games for the Knicks to lose, so hopefully they come out strong and lose this one like the hopeful losers they are. Let’s go? Knicks!
I think I just assumed this was such a gimme that I didn’t even think to put up a game thread. My apologies. Tank on, Knicks!

The Knicks had their first “okay, we’re seriously tanking now” moment of the season tonight, as they are resting Melo, Rose and Lance Thomas in a winnable game in Portland. Good for them. Let’s go? Knicks!
It’s funny, as the Knicks have been depressing me more for the next few seasons based just on how amazingly bad they are playing as of late, they at least let me feel better about their direct future, since they are SO bad that any wins would shock me now. Boy, do the Knicks suck. “Ron Baker had an okay game in a blowout after a few shitty games by him, time to get excited!” Let’s go? Knicks!
