2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bulls

Remember the days when you’d be sort of pumped up to see the Knicks play another good team on a nationally televised game? It was just two years ago that the Knicks were in such a state. Heck, forget the legitimately good 2012-13 team, I was cool with the 2010-11 team, where we could at least sort of hope for a good game from the team. It’s a long ways away from the 1990s, where the Knicks could legitimately win every game they played, no matter who the opponent was, but it was something. Now? Well, now I look to …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

It is early in the season but this is still sort of an important game, as this is a team that the Knicks really can defeat, which would hurt them in the cutthroat game of “trying to get a top three pick.” Melo returns tonight. So let’s go…Knicks?

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pelicans

The Knicks are currently just a game ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers in the “race” for the worst record in the NBA. The problem is that the Knicks are also a half game ahead of the Detroit Pistons plus a game back of the Minnesota Timberwolves and a game and a half back of both the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Lakers. In other words, if the Knicks play even slightly better, they will easily move from their current third-to-worst standing to sixth worst. Can you believe that? That is astonishing. It is no wonder that the league voted …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hornets

What happens when a movable object meets a stoppable force? Find out when the 4-16 Knicks head to Charlotte to face the 4-15 Hornets! We pick up in the first quarter (sorry, I thought the game began at 7:30 PM) with the Knicks trailing (the Knicks? Trailing? The dickens you say!) 8-6. Let’s go Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers

Tonight is an important game for the Knicks. Their victory in the second game of the season against the Cavaliers was the Knicks’ best win of the season. However, that win was one of the Knicks’ only victories of the season, to the point where if they lose tonight they will officially have the worst record through 20 games in Knick history, and the Knicks have had a lot of bad seasons (they’ve lost 59 games four times!) so it would be nice if the Knicks didn’t have the worst record in the history of the franchise, but it doesn’t …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nets

We’re almost certainly at the point in the season when we should be rooting for the Knicks to lose every game, but I’m sorry, I just can’t do it, not when the #8 seed is the 7-10 Indiana Pacers. So I’m still rooting for the Knicks against the Nets tonight. Let’s go Knicks!
