Tonight is a huge game. It is the first night of a home and home against the Cleveland “Still in the hunt for the #3 seed and the chance to play the Kyrie-less Boston Celtics in the first round” Cavaliers, which the Knicks should be destroyed by the Cavaliers in both games, leading to a real possibility that the Knicks could end up tied for the #7 seed, by virtue of the Bulls beating the Nets tonight and then the Nets beating the “No reason to care” Celtics in their final game of the season. Either way, so long as …continue reading
Remember when they won a couple of games and it seemed like they were locked in to the #9 spot in the draft and people said, “You can’t get mad about the wins now, since they’re locked in to the #9 seed so it doesn’t matter”? Well, as it turned out, it still did matter, as the Knicks enter tonight just one game ahead of Chicago and just two ahead of the Nets. They still have a chance in this thing!

At least they’re losing this one easily so far. Phew. Let’s go, Nick-at-Nite!
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!
