2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Heat

The Knicks have just had some awesome luck these last few games, huh? First, Russell Westbrook returns from an injury just in time to face the Knicks and now Dwyane Wade is also choosing now to return to from an injury. Thanks a lot, guys! I’m leaving for a show at the Gramercy right now (5:00 PM), so I don’t know if Melo is playing. He’s currently listed as “questionable” (upgraded from doubtful), so let’s hope that the Knicks get him back! They sure need him. Let’s go Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Thunder

Isn’t it just so perfectly Knicks that they get the Olakahoma City Thunder just as Russell Westbrook comes back? Plus, after trying to work out before the game, Melo is officially out for the game, so they get their star back just as the Knicks confirm that they will be without their star. However, if the Melo-less Knicks could hang with a healthy Dallas team, they might be able to do well against a Thunder team that has been garbage without Westbrook. He might not be 100% tonight, also. So there’s hope! Let’s go Knicks!

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Hawks

This is a bit of a peculiar home and home, isn’t it? They rarely give teams a day off between them. I’ll definitely take it for the Knicks, as Prigs is back tonight and who knows if he would have been able to play if they played yesterday. I just bought tickets to the game (playing the ol’ StubHub game today – I sold an extra ticket I had to a concert this weekend and made enough on the sale that I figured I’d splurge on some cheap Knicks tickets – I ended up with some nice seats for half-face) …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pistons

Is it just me or does it seem slightly unreasonable to schedule in the first two weeks of the season two back-to-back games where the team is traveling from New York to the Midwest? Why not a back-to-back where both games are on the road? Or where the second game is not such a long journey? Just seems odd to me. Anyhow, the Knicks take on the Pistons tonight, playing without a second key member of their rotation, with JR Smith being suspended for his “punch” towards Glen Rice Jr.’s groin last night. Seems like a stretch to me, but …continue reading
