2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hawks

In this pathetic shitshow of a Conference, the New York Knicks are now just a game and a half back of the #7 seed. The Knicks are six games under .500 and yet they’re practically in the playoffs! This is pretty much the worst case scenario for this team. They’re a bad team that needs to blow the team up, but every other team in the Eastern Conference is also a bad team (and a few of them should also blow their team up – I’m looking at you, Indiana and Chicago). So the Knicks are very much in danger …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Hornets

It’s interesting, if the Knicks just trade Carmelo Anthony, I’d imagine that that would lead to a wholesale fire sale, in which case them winning tonight wouldn’t really matter. That takes a bit of the edge off of what could otherwise be a scary game for the tank, since the Hornets are in a tailspin at the moment (like most Eastern Conference teams not named the Raptors or Wizards), so they could easily lose to the Knicks tonight on the road. Let’s hope KP looks healthier tonight. If the Melo deal goes through, KP won’t be enough to keep the …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Mavericks

The Knicks head to Dallas tonight to take on a pretty awful Mavericks team. The Knicks are very close to a winning streak, which is not where they need to be, but eh, at least maybe we’ll see another good game from Willy! Let’s go, Knicks?

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pacers

Here’s the thing about the Eastern Conference. The Pacers are not good. They are just flat out not a good team. They absolutely should tear their team down, trade Paul George and rebuild around Myles Turner. They are not a good team and their future does not look particularly bright. Also? They’re the #7 seed in the East! They’re just one game behind being the #5 seed in the Eastern Conference! But get this – they’re also only four games ahead of the Knicks! The biggest trap for the Knicks on their way to getting a top 10 pick in …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Suns

This is going to be a hard one for the tank. The Knicks played awful against the Suns in Phoenix (and without Derrick Rose most of the game) and they still were in a position where they really should have won that game, so this will be a tough game to lose. Oh well, I guess we can at least root for Porzingis to own Marquese Chriss tonight (you know KP hasn’t forgotten how much of a dick Chriss was to him in that Phoenix game). By the way, as an aside, how shitty was last year’s draft that Marquese …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Wizards

The Knicks host the Washington Wizards tonight. The Knicks and Wizards have been weird parallels of each other this season. When the Knicks were up earlier this season, the Wizards were down and while the Knicks have been down, the Wizards have been up. We’ll probably see a reverse of that tonight, as the hunt for 42 wins continues apace! It’s the Knicks, always bet on the worst possible scenario happening! Let’s go, Knicks?

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

The Knicks head to Boston to take on the Boston Celtics tonight. The Knicks will be playing without both Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah (and Lance Thomas, for that matter), so you would think that that would spell doom for the Knicks tonight and, frankly, it probably will, but I dunno, I could see the Celtics looking past the Knicks due to Porzingis and Noah not being there and then having Melo and O’Quinn surprise them. Mostly, though, I’m basing that on my whole “just waiting for the Knicks to win a game they shouldn’t just to mess with their …continue reading
