2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavs

The tank is in a precarious position tonight. The Knicks host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are in the middle of a major funk right now. Not only that, but while Kevin Love returns tonight, they will be without Kyrie Irving so, well, that’s a huge opening for the Knicks to sneak a win in at just the wrong time for the tank. Oh well, let’s at least hope Melo plays well in front of a big audience! Let’s? Go? Knicks?

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Wizards

The Knicks travel to D.C. tonight to take on the Washington Wizards in yet another one of those Eastern Conference games where the Knicks have too good of a chance at winning. Luckily, the Wizards have legitimately played well as of late, looking like an actually good team. However, the Knicks still played them very close the last time these two teams tangled, so it will likely be another close game. Hopefully the Knicks don’t pull it off, as they don’t need any sort of sign to Melo for him not to waive the NTC. Let’s go, Knicks?
