These next two games against Minnesota and Philadelphia might make or break the Knicks’ season. A quick word, though, on tiebreakers when it comes to the lottery. Ties are not broken the traditional way. If the Knicks end the season tied with either Minnesota or Philadelphia for the worst record, the two teams would then just evenly split the lottery balls allotted for #1 and #2 combined (a three-way tie would then be the same, just adding in the #3 lottery balls).

I seriously almost fear saying something about games that should be automatic losses like this one, because then Hardaway and Shved will go, like, 18 for 20 from three point land and the Knicks will pull off an upset win.

A while back, I would have been worried about this game, but no more, as the Lakers are foolishly trying to win (Byron Scott was running out a 9-man rotation last game!), so the Knicks should be in good shape tonight. But if they were to win a game, this Lakers team is pretty bad, so it will be scary! Let’s go? Knicks!
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!
