Game Thread

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bulls

It is a huge game for the Knicks as they host the Chicago Bulls (or at least those that chose to come to New York), who are one game worse than the Knicks! This is a must-lose game! I’m here with my wife and holy crap, the seats in the 100 level are crazy cramped. So weird. Let’s go, Nicolas Cage!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Hornets

The Knicks host the Charlotte Hornets tonight, one of the few teams in the league who is probably in worse shape than the Knicks. Except they have a good coach, so I dunno. Anyhow, let’s hope that they can pull off another clutch loss! Let’s go, Nick Cannon!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Mavericks

The Knicks host the Mavericks in one of the most dangerous games to the tanks around, as the Mavericks are three games behind/ahead of the Knicks in the tank and losing this game would be huge for the tank. The Nets, meanwhile, are up 18-6 on the Raptors, so maybe this could be a doubly good night! Let’s go, Nick Jonas!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Raptors

Oops, I thought that this was a 2pm start for some reason. Okay, the Knicks host the Raptors today, and the Knicks have surprisingly played them tough in the past. Luke Kornet with the start! Let’s go, Nick of Time (starring Johnny Depp)!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

The Bucks seem to sometimes play down to their opponents, so this could be a trap game! By the way, Frank Isola had an interesting article about Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who the Knicks had on their G-League team and is now on the Memphis Grizzlies. It’s interesting how there sometimes is effectively free talent that you could try out rather than spending $71 million on Tim Hardaway Jr. Let’s go, Nick at Nite!

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Trailblazers

The future is now! Frank Ntilikina will start tonight for the Knicks in his first career start. This was made possible by the Knicks facing the dynamic backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum and Emmanuel Mudiay re-defining the word “suck.” Let’s go, Nick Nolte!
