2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pacers

Oops, I thought that this game was at 8pm. My bad! Anyhow, the Knicks host the Indiana Pacers in a big game in terms of keeping them in the top half of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Derrick Rose is back, which is big. Every game up until (and including) Christmas, I’ll share a bit from a classic TV Christmas Special. Here’s Judy Garland singing a Christmas medley with her daughter, Liza, and Jack Jones on Garland’s Christmas special… Let’s go, Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Nuggets

The Knicks finish their road trip tonight with a visit to Denver to take on the Denver Nuggets, Carmelo Anthony’s old team. Melo will play tonight, so let’s hope that he has a good game in his old stomping grounds. The Knicks are 2-2 on this road trip, so it sure would be swell to have a winning record on the trip. Derrick Rose is out tonight, which will make things a bit more difficult. Every game until (and including) Christmas, I’ll be including a clip from an old school TV Christmas Special. Today, we’ll go with the classic David …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Warriors

The Knicks travel to Oakland later tonight to take on the best team in the league, the Golden State Warriors. Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony will both be out tonight, so it would take a Christmas miracle for the Knicks to win, but hey, the Memphis Grizzlies actually kicked the Warriors’ ass recently while playing without Mike Conley so, as they would say in Dumb and Dumber, “so you’re saying there’s a chance?” Hopefully Porzingis will not be run into the ground tonight. At the very least, we’ll likely see some excellent play by the Warriors. That’s something. RIP to …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Suns

Tonight, the Knicks travel to Phoenix to take on the shitty Suns in the third game of this road trip, which has gone very well so far. The Knicks get Golden State next, so it would be good for the Knicks to win tonight to get to five games over .500. Five games over .500! Can you imagine that?!?! That would be amazing. Hell, I’m super pumped about them being four games over .500! So come on, Knicks, take advantage of another shitty team! Every game between now and Christmas (including Christmas’s game) I’ll feature a clip from a 1970s …continue reading

16-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Lakers

The Knicks head to Los Angeles to take on an interesting Lakers team. They are not a particularly GOOD team, but hell, at least they’re fun to watch, unlike some of these other recent shitty teams that the Knicks have played (have I mentioned how much I hate the Timberwolves?). Derrick Rose returns tonight, so the Knicks should win this one. Let’s go, Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Kings

The Knicks begin a five-game, ten-day (thank goodness for no back-to-backs!) road trip tonight in Sacramento. Sacramento is not particularly good, but the Knicks will be without the services of Derrick Rose tonight. The way that this roster is set up, with Sasha Vujacic as the only other point guard that Jeff Hornacek will give any real minutes to, an injury to either Rose or Brandon Jennings is really devastating, as, again, Sasha Vujacic is the only other point guard that Jeff Hornacek will give any real minutes to. I don’t even mean that in a “Oh man, give Ron …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavs

I know people are already writing this one off because Lebron is angry over Phil being a dick, but I really think that the Knicks have a chance tonight. Yes, Lebron will play angry, but who is to say that that means he’ll play better? Lebron gives it his all every time he comes to New York. I don’t see how he’s going to give extra greatness tonight. And, as we’ve seen before, this team tends to play to their opponents. They let the shitty teams like Minnesota keep it close, but they also kept it close themselves against Toronto. …continue reading
