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?

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hawks

In this pathetic shitshow of a Conference, the New York Knicks are now just a game and a half back of the #7 seed. The Knicks are six games under .500 and yet they’re practically in the playoffs! This is pretty much the worst case scenario for this team. They’re a bad team that needs to blow the team up, but every other team in the Eastern Conference is also a bad team (and a few of them should also blow their team up – I’m looking at you, Indiana and Chicago). So the Knicks are very much in danger …continue reading
