Is this a preview of the ECFs? Some would think it could be. Let’s hope the Knicks treat it as it is. New York is 2-1 against the NBA leading, defending champion Heat. The team can win the season series tonight. Chandler is back. Martin comes off the bench. James, Wade, and Chalmers sitting (so if they lose, I’d be really concerned but honestly if they win I’d still say it wasn’t against the Heat at their best.) No matter who is playing, let’s bring this win streak to nine. Go New York Go New York Go.
Something something game thoughts
Rather than post a content filled preview that nobody reads and does nothing more than give jon abbey a reason to be…well jon abbey, I’m going to skip the preview and get right to the best part of the game thread: in-game comments! So here is a preview of what I would have said if I wasn’t going to miss the game because I’m taking my parents to dinner. Thomas B. March 9, 2013 7:25 pm Shump Shump Thomas B.

ESPN TrueHoop blogger Kyle Weidie (@Truth_About_It) of the excellent Wizards Blog TruthAboutit.net was kind enough to answer a few questions about the Wizards (18-38) as they take on the Knicks (34-20) for the third time this season. The Wizards have as many wins in the first 40 games of the season (9) as they do over the last 16. Is this just about getting John Wall back? It’s definitely about John Wall, but to say that it’s ‘all’ about him would detract from the efforts of others. Wall has certainly helped the presence of Bradley Beal, but the rookie showed …continue reading
Knicks look to knot the season series after suffering a tough last second loss to the Kings in December. Your in-game thoughts here.
Felton is back! And just when Prigioni was getting to be not so awful. It will be interesting to see whether Felton’s return–even in limited minutes–can help the Knicks find the offensive rhythm they had earlier in the season. I’m also going to pay close attention to how Felton and Shumpert play together since they comprise what really should be the team’s starting backcourt. The 76ers (17-25) are 2-8 in the last 10 games and are struggling mightily to find consistent scoring. They are 28th in offensive rating at 101.7 points per 100 possessions. The Hawes v. Chandler match up …continue reading
The Knicks (22-10) won the last trip to Orlando (12-20) 99-89. Orlando is mired in a 7 game losing streak. While the Knicks just ended the Spurs’s 7 game win streak 100-83. The Knicks have a pretty favorable schedule over the next month. They’ll play 1 set of consecutive road games, and only 2 back-to-backs over the next 14 games. The Knicks need to grind out as many wins as they can right now because March is looking to be a very tough month. Your in-game thoughts here.
