In all seriousness, tonight’s game has no special meaning. They’re on the road, facing the defending Eastern Conference champions and perhaps the best player in the game (certainly the best player of his generation).
So a loss really wouldn’t be a big deal.
However, being over .500 five games into the season? How amazing would that be?
Plus, Cleveland does not have a great penetrating point guard, which gives you some hope that the Knicks won’t get torched.
I know, I know, don’t get your hopes up, but darnit, I can’t help but get my hopes up!
So come on, let’s go, Knicks!
