Coming off a demolishing victory of the Phoenix Suns, the Knicks head to the Staples Center to take on the Los Angeles Clippers. With Arron Afflalo and Lance Thomas both out of commission once again, star shooting guard Sasha Vujacic will get the start again, as I’m sure he will light up the Clippers in his return to where he played his best seasons in the league. The Knicks will likely win this game, as they need to win just enough games so that Phil Jackson can keep Kurt Rambis. Because, well, you know – because Knicks. Let’s go meaningless …continue reading
The Knicks are finalizing a three-year deal with free agent fourth year point guard, Tony Wroten, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania (who has become one of the top “scoops” guy in the business). So far in his career, Tony Wroten has been awful. Just awful. However, he’s only 22 years old, he’s very fast (although he’s coming off of a significant injury) and the three-year deal is likely not guaranteed beyond this season (although we’ll know for sure later today when it is finalized). EDITED TO ADD: There are minimal guarantees for the 2nd and 3rd seasons. With the …continue reading
We join the game in the second quarter with the Knicks really taking it to the Pistons, up 41-32. Let’s go Knicks!
Oops, I thought that this was a later game. I think the Knicks match up well against the Pacers. Monta Ellis is really not all that good. I’m okay with his 50% True Shooting Percentage going nuts. It will be fun to finally see Myles Turner against the Knicks. There’s no draft pick waiting for them, so let’s go Knicks!
Sorry, folks, someone else was scheduled to do this game thread, so I wanted to wait until the last moment before throwing one up on my own. Anyhow, today is the first game of the Kurt Rambis era of the New York Knicks. If Kristaps Porzingis suddenly starts getting played less than Kevin Seraphim, you know things are bad. Seriously, though, I honestly don’t think Rambis’ disastrous stint in Minnesota says that much about him as a coach. That was just a really bad team. I think Rambis is not an awful coach, but nor is he a particularly good …continue reading
I totally forgot that there was a game today. It is so weird that the NBA has the Knicks playing the same day as the Super Bowl. In any event, the Knicks are currently in the first period against the Denver Nuggets, trailing 14-10. Hopefully at least this Denver team does not win today. Carmelo Anthony is back in the starting lineup to play against his old team. Let’s go Knicks!
Well, that‘s not a good piece of news before the game begins. Carmelo Anthony is out for the game due to his knee (hopefully they’re just being conservative because of the back-to-back games and not something much more worrisome) and Lance Thomas is out because he is in the concussion protocol (which means he will miss Sunday’s game, as well, as he wouldn’t be eligible to play until Tuesday). Sooo….well…this will be a tough game for the Knicks to win. However, they played the Grizzlies fairly tight without Melo the last time they played, so maybe they’ll have a chance …continue reading
