2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Trailblazers

Tonight is a very interesting game as the Knicks try to get to .500 on the season. The Portland Trailblazers are a lot like the Knicks so far, middling offenses but with terrible defenses. The Trailblazers are actually at the very bottom of the NBA in defensive efficiency right now. So, playing at home, the Knicks should win this game, but boy, the Blazers’ guards are scary. The Knicks handled them last season, so let’s hope that they handle them tonight! Let’s go, Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Hawks

The Knicks host the Hawks in another one of those weird noon games that nobody likes playing. Hopefully the Hawks went out partying in New York City last night (although after what happened to Thabo Sefolosha last year, perhaps they would be a bit wary of partying in New York City) and that the early game time will slow them down. The Hawks lost their last game after Dwight Howard was ejected for a flagrant foul late in the fourth quarter against Charlotte. Charlotte then scored nine unanswered points and ended up winning the game despite being down ten points …continue reading
