Going into the half, the Knicks trail the Jazz by eight points. Which is good for the tank!
The last time that the Knicks and the Celtics faced each other, I was very afraid of the Celtic’ chances as a dark horse candidate for the tanking crown. As it turns out, I was waaaaaaaaay off base, as the Celtics have played downright decent while the Knicks have lost every game since that matchup (including that matchup). Let’s go? Knicks!
Wouldn’t you just know it, but JR Smith’s problems with Sunday afternoon games hasn’t been an issue in his return to New York. This one got late early.
I swear, the NBA All-Star break is waaaaaaay too long. They should fix that next season. Who needs this much time to recuperate?

This game tonight marks a new journey for both teams to play the rest of the season without their highest-paid player.

Our best hopes to the former Knick star.
This is going to be a tough game for the Knicks to lose, but hopefully they can pull it out with Philly and Minnesota both playing very losable games tonight. Hassan Whiteside is luckily healthy enough to play. And, of course, most importantly, so is Andrea Bargnani. Let’s go! Knicks?
