2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Mavericks

Well, this is the best test for how bad the Knicks are on the road. The Mavericks are not a good team, so if the Knicks can’t beat them, that would be very embarrassing. Of course, the annoying thing is going to be the constant comparison between Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina, where Smith will get waaaaaay too much credit for his pointz. Let’s go, Knicks!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

The Knicks travel to Miami to see if they can win two games from the Heat on the Heat’s home court. The Knicks kicked the Heat’s ass in their last meeting in Miami, which saw the Heat play without Hassan Whiteside, but the Knicks also played without Kristaps Porzingis for most of that game. So this, really, will be sort of a new look for both teams. It will be interesting to see who the Heat use on Porzingis defensively. Obviously, Kelly Olynyk will start on him, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Heat try to use James …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Wizards

The Knicks head to Washington D.C. to take on the Washington Wizards. The two teams are on the opposite ends of streaks, with the Knicks having lost 5 of their past 6 and the Wizards winning two straight. The Wizards are at home and the Knicks have struggled on the road. However, the Knicks have had had a bit of a mixed bag recently while playing in Washington. Last year, they got blown out once but the other game was very competitive. The previous year they won a game in Washington and were competitive in the other game. The Wizards …continue reading

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Spurs

Sorry, I thought that this was going to be an 8pm game for TNT. Anyhow, the Knicks are actually holding tight with the Spurs through the first, down 14-9. This would be a remarkable win if they could it off. Let’s go, Knicks!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Spurs

This teams makes no sense sometimes, so honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them somehow pull off the upset in San Antonio. They have played well here in recent years, winning once and coming one rimmed out three by Calderon from winning again two years ago. Plus, no Kawhi tonight for the Spurs. So, hey, stranger things have happened! Let’s go, Knicks!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bulls

Tonight will be a fascinating game. The Knicks have been really poor on the road, but they’re still a good deal better, overall, than the Bulls. However, the Bulls are playing extremely well since Nikola Mirotic has returned and basically said, “Eff y’all for taking Bobby Portis’ side in our fight. I’m going to play out of my mind and show you that I’m awesome.” I find it a bit odd that they’re doing so well, since so many of their players are still not particularly good, but hey, maybe it’s a synergy-type thing? Anyhow, since the Knicks own the …continue reading
