2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pacers

The season is mercifully coming to an end tonight, at least for the dreary Knicks. The contest between the Knicks and Pacers is only really meaningful for the Indiana side. The Pacers have two games remaining, including tonight, and sit in a tie with the Pistons in the standings. The Pacers own the tie-breaker with Detroit, so they occupy the 7th seed, but there’s still room for things to fall apart. Obviously, the 7th seed is the more attractive position because it results in a date with the Raptors versus the 8th seed’s inevitable meeting with Lebron’s Cavaliers. The Pacers …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Raptors

I was so caught up in the great sports day with the dramatic Masters final and the Warriors/Spurs that I forgot that this team was still playing. At the half, the Knicks trail the Raptors 54-51. The Knicks have a chance to avoid losing 50 games! Let’s go, Knicks!

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs Pacers

The Knicks have as many games left as most people not named Jason Pierre-Paul have fingers on one hand. That’s both a bit sad and somewhat reassuring at the same time, seeing as the tailspin that started in January has been difficult to watch for a fanbase used to losing in recent years that was given a glimmer of hope by the Knicks’ .500 record at the midpoint of the season. All that’s left to be accomplished with this season now is to play potential spoiler to the Pacers, a team that we have every reason to despise. It was …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nets

The Knicks take on the Nets in a game that makes Jerian Grant’s debut as a starting point guard for the Knicks due to Jose Calderon perhaps being out for the rest of the season. The Nets are shockingly kind of fun to watch now, so even with Porzingis out, this might actually be a fun game to watch. Always fun to watch the Lopez twins play each other. Let’s go, Knicks! The meaningless winning streak begins soon!

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Mavericks

Hello again, Knickerblogger family! It’s so damn good to see you! I’ve returned from my annual two weeks of NCAA Tournament fanaticism, and it feels good to be paying attention to NBA basketball again. If you watch about 40 games of college basketball over the course of 10 days, it becomes rather clear how superior NBA players are. In fact, by the end of the Elite 8 games on Sunday, I was honestly relieved that my (why is it so important to me every year when I basically ignore college basketball until the tournament starts?) bracket was eliminated from my …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pelicans

The Knicks travel to New Orleans, where they take on the tanktacular New Orleans Pelicans, who have taken a page out of the 1997 San Antonio Spurs’ playbook by resting their star player and trying to get as high of a draft pick as they can. Buddy Hield sure would look good playing with the Brow. The Knicks should win this one, but let’s hope that it is a fun win like the Chicago beatdowns! I want 30 from Porzingis! Let’s go, Knicks!
