2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Timberwolves

The Knicks host the Timberwolves on the second half of their dumb home and home series (why are these two teams doing a home and home is still beyond me). The Timberwolves lost to the Knicks on Wednesday despite Karl-Anthony Towns playing one of the best games that you would ever see and the Wolves being at home. The second of those things won’t be true tonight and it seems highly unlikely that the first will be repeated, as well (as simply, who has games like Towns did back-to-back? Nobody, that’s who). So the Knicks really, really should win this …continue reading

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Timberwolves

The Knicks travel to Minnesota to take on the Timberwolves in the first game of a home and home with Minnesota. The two games are spread over three games, making the whole thing just really weird. What’s the point? NBA schedules are weird. Like Oklahoma City playing at home, then traveling to New York City for one game before returning right back home. Who schedules like that? Anyhow, the Timberwolves have an awful record and they are in a major funk, but this is obviously a talented team, especially their big men, Dieng and reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony …continue reading
