EDITOR’S NOTE: As most of you probably noticed, Clyde was not on booth duty for tonight’s game, having left yesterday to attend the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Afghanistan.

Knicks 117, Cavs 86: Letters to David

Pacers 117 STOP Knicks 89 STOP

Editor’s Note: Our humble correspondent originally planned on filing a game recap in the traditional manner, i.e. on the internet and mildly under the influence.

Knicks 102, Heat 92: PRANKS
