2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Sixers: Tankageddon 2015

This game is very important not because the Sixers can really catch the Knicks, but because the Sixers are by far the worst team the Knicks play the rest of the year. So if the Knicks can somehow manage to lose to the Sixers, then they should be in good shape to get the worst record in the league.

The Sixers played just last night (a one-point, last second loss) so this will be a tough game for the Knicks to lose. One bright spot is that Nerlens Noel will be suiting up for Philly tonight.

A fellow on Twitter by the name of @Madrillionaire had a funny bit earlier today. He posted a photo of the Kentucky players after last night’s loss, captioned “When you realize you’re now part of the Knicks’ starting lineup.”



Let’s go! Knicks?
