2014 Game Thread: Knicks @ Sixers

Are you swooning just a bit?  I’m still swooning just a bit.  I’m not ashamed to say that after the way this season started, I wrote this team off for dead but the way they have played over the last 5 games makes me say “I do believe I have the vapors.” Between Stat looking something not quite but very close to spry, Shumpert doing his best Novak impersonation (17 of 28 61% from deep over the last 5 games), and Melo keeping the offense from looking like the GW bridge with two lanes shut down I’m actually invested in …continue reading

2013 Game thread: Knicks @ Heat

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.

2013 Comments Preview and Game Thread: Jazz v. Knicks

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.

2013 Preview and Game Thread: Knicks @ Wizards

ESPN TrueHoop blogger Kyle Weidie (@Truth_About_It) of the excellent Wizards Blog 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

2012-13 Game Thread: Knicks @ Sixers

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
