2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Grizzlies

The Knicks head to Memphis on the second game of their seven-game/two-week long road trip. Luckily for the Knicks, both Memphis centers, Marc Gasol and Brandon Wright, are out tonight due to illness (I hope it is not Consumption. La bohème let me know that that stuff is dangerous as heck). So this really should be both the first Knick winning streak in quite a while but their first road winning streak period this season. How pathetic is that? This is the Knicks, so you know they’re going to make a run at the #9 seed, so this is likely …continue reading

[NY Newsday] Knicks beat Nets for third time this season (Monday, January 15, 2018 9:21:19 PM) If you must go on a seven-game road trip that probably will determine the fate of your season, you might as well start it with all the comforts of home.

2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Nets

The Great “Oh, We Get To Host the Grammys? Fuck the Knicks, Then!” Road Trip of 2018 begins today with a short trip to Brooklyn for the first MLK Day Game not at the Garden in thirty years. It’s annoying, but hey, I guess hosting the Grammys is a huge get for MSG. If it goes well, though, does that mean that that they’ll skip MLK Day games at the Garden going forward? That would suck. Anyhow, the Knicks host the Nets in a game that would be very helpful for the Knicks to lose, considering draft position, but don’t …continue reading

Well, the Knicks beat the Pelicans on the road and the Knicks are terrible on the road (and they have Hardaway back), so you have to like their chances this afternoon. Trey Burke is officially a Knick (contract details unclear – let’s hope they got an option for next year). I don’t know if he’ll play today. Let’s go, Knicks!
