2014-15 Game Thread: Timberwolves vs. Knicks

These next two games against Minnesota and Philadelphia might make or break the Knicks’ season. A quick word, though, on tiebreakers when it comes to the lottery. Ties are not broken the traditional way. If the Knicks end the season tied with either Minnesota or Philadelphia for the worst record, the two teams would then just evenly split the lottery balls allotted for #1 and #2 combined (a three-way tie would then be the same, just adding in the #3 lottery balls).

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Spurs

I seriously almost fear saying something about games that should be automatic losses like this one, because then Hardaway and Shved will go, like, 18 for 20 from three point land and the Knicks will pull off an upset win.

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Lakers

A while back, I would have been worried about this game, but no more, as the Lakers are foolishly trying to win (Byron Scott was running out a 9-man rotation last game!), so the Knicks should be in good shape tonight. But if they were to win a game, this Lakers team is pretty bad, so it will be scary! Let’s go? Knicks!
