Pulling this completely out of my ass, but I would think that it would have to be beneficial to be the home team in the first game of a home and home series. Doesn’t that just seem like it makes sense? You have the better chance of winning the first game and then you’re playing with a game in hand for the next game. So I think it is a good thing that the Knicks start tonight’s home and home at MSG. Home and homes are weird, by the way. I don’t get the purpose of them. It’s not like …continue reading

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 Knicks handled them last season, so let’s hope that they handle them tonight! Let’s go, Knicks!
