This game is very important not because the Sixers can really catch the Knicks, but because the Sixers are by far the worst team the Knicks play the rest of the year. So if the Knicks can somehow manage to lose to the Sixers, then they should be in good shape to get the worst record in the league. The Sixers played just last night (a one-point, last second loss) so this will be a tough game for the Knicks to lose. One bright spot is that Nerlens Noel will be suiting up for Philly tonight.

I think it is very fair if everyone would prefer to watch the Kentucky game and see the player we hope that the Knicks can end up with instead of this nonsense. The Bulls seem to often play down to their competition, so this could be a bit scary. Let’s go? Knicks!
The Sixers almost won a game last night and the Timberwolves actually did win the other night. So the other teams in the “Race” for the bottom of the standings are doing their part – the Knicks have to keep doing their part. Let’s go? 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.

Then a coin flip would determine which team is “officially” #1 and #2 for the purposes of the …continue reading
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. But with the Spurs playing so well recently, this would be a hard-to-believe win for the Knicks. Let’s go? Knicks!
This is the latest in a series of examinations into different games, events and decisions that impacted Knicks history in some way, shape or form. Stories that are not as famous as, say, “The Dunk” or Willis Reed playing Game 7, but still have a place in Knicks history, especially for die-hard fans. Here is an archive of all the stories featured so far. A fear every Knick fan has is that someday the Knicks owner might try to bring former Knick President Isiah Thomas back to the organization in some capacity, as James Dolan clearly still appreciates the insights …continue reading
