2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Cavaliers

The Knicks’ 2017-18 season comes to a merciful end tonight. The chances are high that the Knicks will lose this one, since the Cavaliers still have something to play for. They are currently the #4 seed and getting to the #3 seed (and a second round match-up with the Kyrie-less Celtics) is clearly a very juicy place to be, so the Cavs will be playing to win and the Cavs are much better than the Knicks, so even if the Knicks try to win (and they will try to win, because they’re morons), the Cavs should pull this out.

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers

Tonight is a huge game. It is the first night of a home and home against the Cleveland “Still in the hunt for the #3 seed and the chance to play the Kyrie-less Boston Celtics in the first round” Cavaliers, which the Knicks should be destroyed by the Cavaliers in both games, leading to a real possibility that the Knicks could end up tied for the #7 seed, by virtue of the Bulls beating the Nets tonight and then the Nets beating the “No reason to care” Celtics in their final game of the season.

Orlando, however, is going to be difficult to lose to, especially at home. I predict 25 points for THJ …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

The Knicks luckily avoid this huge snowstorm that we’re going through (snowstorms in late March are annoying. Okay, they’re annoying any time they happen, but especially when they happen in late March) by playing in Miami. Miami is still ostensibly fighting for a playoff spot, but they’re pretty much locked in. Now it is just about avoiding playing against Toronto in the first round. Not that Boaton is much better of a matchup, of course. Hopefully Frank has another good game! Let’s go, Nick Foles, Super Bowl champion!
