Game Thread: New York Knicks @ Minnesota Timberwolves

This schedule is so bizarre. I was away with my wife for our anniversary and I figured I’d still post a game thread, but I thought they were in Sacramento because they were playing Minnesota tonight, but no, yesterday they come home from a West Coast trip and then tonight they’re back on a West Coast trip?

NY Post: Draft-night whispers, Kidd hint: Frank Ntilikina’s Knicks future fading

Here’s the thing with Marc Berman “mouthpiece” articles. They’re seriously just repeating whatever he gets told at any given moment.

2018-19 Game Thread: New York Knicks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

This is an oddly long homestand, no? Anyhow, this is a major game for tanking purposes, as the Knicks have to be the big favorites tonight, which would tie them with Cleveland. If they win this one, that starts to make falling out of the bottom three a real possibility. That would be pretty devastating. I’ll still root for MitchRob to have a good game, though! I can’t help it!
