2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nets

I’m attending the game and I am hoping like heck to see some Linsanity at work so that the Knicks don’t suddenly start stringing a couple of wins together. I don’t want them getting too confident. But you just know that they can’t very well lose to the Nets twice in a week, so this is almost certainly a win. But eh, if they’re going to win a game, at least I’ll be at MSG to watch it. Wins are pretty fun to watch live. Let’s go? Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pacers

Despite a notable snowstorm (although not quite the blizzard some feared), the Knicks and Pacers will still go at it tonight. Which is good for the Knicks, as they need to get back to losing! The Pacers are fighting for the playoffs, so this should be a loss for the Knicks, but hell, who knows with this team? That Nets loss has reduced my skepticism a great deal about the Knicks getting a top six pick (and if they get into the top six, who knows when it comes to the lottery), but the Knicks have a knack of letting …continue reading

R.I.P. John Andariese

We lost “Johnny Hoops” today, the great former Knicks announcer, John Andariese (whose last name was so tricky that I already spelled it incorrectly on Twitter), today. For Knick fans of the 1990s, we were not only in a Golden Age, but we all KNEW we were in a Golden Age, as we had John Andariese and Marv Albert on MSG with Mike Breen and Clyde Frazier on the radio. Breen and Frazier were clearly way too talented to be “just” radio announcers, but boy, all four were great. John Andariese then swapped roles with Clyde Frazier and eventually, Andariese …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Nets

After a much-needed loss last night, the Knicks are running up against one of the hardest teams in the NBA to lose to in the Brooklyn Nets. The good thing is that the Nets have no reason to lose this game, while the Knicks have a very good reason to try to lose this game, so there’s a chance that the Nets could pull it out at home. The Nets have been playing better since Jeremy Lin returned to the team, as they had a point guard-driven offense being driven by, like, Randy Foye (it still shocks me that the …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

There are a certain amount of games that the Knicks could be reasonably expected to have a good chance chance of winning (6 games, one at Milwaukee, home and home against Detroit, home and home against Brooklyn and hosting Philadelphia). This is one of those games. Obviously, we have to allow that they’ll likely have a winning record in those games, but we can hope that they keep their record to more like a 4-2 record instead of 5-1 record. Especially since you never know what will happen in some of those other games (that home and home against Miami …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Warriors

Under normal circumstances, I would not even be slightly concerned about tonight today’s game because the Warriors are normally SO much better than the Knicks. They are still better than the Knicks without Kevin Durant, but the difference is obviously smaller. Not small enough that I think the Knicks have a legitimate chance of winning the game, but small enough that it wouldn’t completely blow my mind. Therefore, I am just slightly worried enough to be, well, slightly worried. Let’s go? Knicks!
