2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Raptors

I thought that there was a Knick day game today, so I didn’t do a thread yesterday and missed the Phoenix game. So I thought, “Oops, I guess I mixed the days up.” Obviously, I did not. That’s what we in the Knicks circle call “compounding a mistake” (like “Hey, we screwed up our chances to get Chris Paul, let’s also make sure that we can’t amnesty Stoudemire”).

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
