2013-14 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers

The Knicks were helped out earlier today by Toronto, who defeated the Hawks (with Kyle Korver out, the Hawks could be due for a lot more losses – they seem to be one of those teams where they really cannot withstand a loss to two of their big guys. They survived okay without Horford but when they lost Millsap they collapsed. Now with Korver missing two games, they’ve lost both of them. Hopefully it continues). So if the Knicks beat the Cavaliers tonight, the Knicks will be just three games back of the Hawks in the loss column (I say …continue reading

2013-14 Game Thread: Knicks @ 76ers

Oops, I thought that this was a 7:30 PM start. My apologies! Angus Crawford ads: A tale of two streaks: your New York Knickerbockers travel to the Liberty City to confront the inimitable PHILadelphia 76ers. After that heartwarming home triumph over Indiana on Wednesday night, the Knicks have now strung together seven straight wins, and are officially 1-0 in the PHIL Jackson era.

Game Preview & Thread: Pacers @ Knicks

The New York Knicks host the Indiana Pacers tonight in a game where both teams come into tonight riding a multiple game winning streak. To get a better idea of what the Knicks have in store for them tonight I brought in Tom Lewis of Indy Cornrows to preview tonight’s game. Enjoy!

Granted, they’ve been against lottery-bound teams, but every win matters as the team tries to lock up the 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. What do you make …continue reading

Game Preview & Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

The New York Knicks have won four in a row and Phil Jackson is probably, definitely, maybe, kinda, coming on board too. To get to five in a row the Knicks will have to win on the road in Boston tonight. To get a better idea of what the Knicks are in for tonight I brought in Tom Westerholm of Celtics Hub and John Karalis of Reds Army. The Boston Celtics have won just three of their last nine games coming into tonight. What has the team struggled with most lately? What are they doing well? Tom: To be honest, …continue reading
