2014-2015 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hornets

The Knicks are riding an unlikely three-game winning streak. They really would be better off with losing this one tonight, and the Hornets have been playing better as of late, so you figure this will be a loss, especially with Melo out. While I should be rooting for a loss, I am still rooting for the chance to say my new catch phrase, “A clutch trey by Galloway!” Let’s go! Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Sixers, AKA “Tankageddon 2015″

In one of the most exciting games of the new year, the Knicks and the 76ers face off in a dramatic battle to see who gets more ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery this June. The Sixers made a decisive move in preparation for the battle today by holding back “sick” Nerlens Noel (Tony Wroten is also out, but I think he’s legitimately injured). Let’s see whether Melo has a mysterious stomach flu right before tip-off. On top of exciting, this might be one of the ugliest games of the year, but it might also be so ugly …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

Now we get to see the Knicks lose on a whole other continent! It’s nice of the Knicks to get their losing done before dinner time here. Melo and STAT are back to play today, so hopefully the Knicks don’t accidentally win this one. Let’s go! Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Grizzlies

So we have to hope that the Knicks play poorly enough to lose but also somehow persuade Marc Gasol to come play for them next season. This game should be a laugher, so just watch this one surprise us with a tough effort. Let me take a moment to pay my respects to longtime NBA reporter Stuart Scott, who passed away yesterday at the age of 49. All of the on-air tributes to him were quite moving. Knicks Go? Let’s! EDITED TO ADD: In major news, Iman Shumpert and JR Smith have been traded to Cleveland and Sam Dalembart has …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bucks

Let’s hope that the bad times keep on rolling! Tonight is a good time to possibly scout Brandon Knight, who would be an intriguing option as a restricted free agent, as he is an actual two-way point guard. The first two-way point guard the Knicks would have since…Charlie Ward? Yikes. It’d cost a lot to get him, but I think he can be had for $12 million a year, and if the Knicks have about $22 million in cap space (which seems to be their most likely scenario, unless they waive JR Smith or if they decide to keep Shump) …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pistons

Luckily for the Knicks, the Pistons, one of their closest competitors for the worst record in the league, have suddenly begun to look like the team Detroit fans were hoping they’d be. All they needed to do, apparently, was to cut out the cancer that was Josh Smith (okay, adding Jodie Meeks was important, as well – Stan Van Gundy clearly put a lot of faith in Meeks and so far it seems like he knew what he was doing). This is good news for Detroit fans but even better news for Knicks fans, as it makes it a lot …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Trailblazers

The Detroit Pistons destroyed the Cleveland Cavaliers today. It’d be kind of hilarious if Josh Smith was the thing holding that team back. Anyhow, the Knicks are looking to be in a prime position to get a top 3 pick. That continues with tonight’s difficult game.
