The Knicks begin a homestand tonight with their first game against the Dallas Mavericks, who are in a total shambles as a franchise, as Dirk might finally really be slowing down (he is pretty darn old).
The Knicks really, really need to win this game. 4-6 is nicely mediocre. 3-7 is awful. The Mavericks are bad and their guards are not scary. So this should be a win. Not a “hey, maybe the Knicks could win this one!” but “they better win this one.”
Let’s go, Knicks!
