This is an interesting back-to-back matchup for the Knicks, as it is hard for mediocre teams to win both ends of a home and home, but I think that the Knicks can slump to the occasion and pull out an important pair of losses here. The Knicks have no answer for Dragic or Whiteside, so this should be a loss, but we shall see! Let’s? Go Knicks!
This is one of the tougher games for the Knicks to lose, so hopefully they come out strong and lose this one like the hopeful losers they are. Let’s go? Knicks!
I think I just assumed this was such a gimme that I didn’t even think to put up a game thread. My apologies. Tank on, Knicks!
The Knicks had their first “okay, we’re seriously tanking now” moment of the season tonight, as they are resting Melo, Rose and Lance Thomas in a winnable game in Portland. Good for them. Let’s go? Knicks!
It’s funny, as the Knicks have been depressing me more for the next few seasons based just on how amazingly bad they are playing as of late, they at least let me feel better about their direct future, since they are SO bad that any wins would shock me now. Boy, do the Knicks suck. “Ron Baker had an okay game in a blowout after a few shitty games by him, time to get excited!” Let’s go? Knicks!
Since the Knicks are visiting the Clippers, there are, of course, a bunch of “maybe Melo will go to the Clippers” stories, which are nonsense. The main story about Melo seeming like he might want to leave opened with Melo saying something along the lines of, “Nah, don’t even start with this” so clearly nothing has actually changed with regards to Melo wanting to leave. But hey, it wouldn’t hurt for Melo to score 60 in a close Knicks loss tonight! Maybe it would move the Clippers to actually make a real offer for Melo. So far they have not. …continue reading
I’m attending the game and I am hoping like heck to see some Linsanity at work so that the Knicks don’t suddenly start stringing a couple of wins together. I don’t want them getting too confident. But you just know that they can’t very well lose to the Nets twice in a week, so this is almost certainly a win. But eh, if they’re going to win a game, at least I’ll be at MSG to watch it. Wins are pretty fun to watch live. Let’s go? Knicks!
