In one of the most exciting games of the new year, the Knicks and the 76ers face off in a dramatic battle to see who gets more ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery this June. The Sixers made a decisive move in preparation for the battle today by holding back “sick” Nerlens Noel (Tony Wroten is also out, but I think he’s legitimately injured).
Let’s see whether Melo has a mysterious stomach flu right before tip-off.
On top of exciting, this might be one of the ugliest games of the year, but it might also be so ugly that it turns around and becomes beautiful.
Let’s go! Knicks!
