    If by “win” you mean lose by single digits, I’d say….no. Double digit loss unless GS decides to sleepwalk through the game.

    I’d like Sasha to start and get big minutes with Calderon as an experiment to see how many points the Warriors guards can get. Rambis might just do that!
    🙂

    Steph and Klay vs. Jose and Sasha.

    It was the best of guards, it was the worst of guards.

    I’m rooting for Steph to break the single game 3 pt record against us.

    It feels inevitable, doesn’t it?

    I predict tonight will be the night we literally see small bursts of flames emanating from the tips of Curry’s fingers.

    I predict Curry sits the rest of the game after scoring 38 points in the first quarter.

    While a win would be extremely unlikely, the Lakers did beat the Warriors soundly just a couple of weeks ago, so anything is possible. I’d almost expect it, if only because it would give Jackson a great reason to bring Rambis back. And then he could tweet about how overrated the Warriors are.

    How many times has a team gone undefeated at home in the NBA? Because we have two teams with a shot at it this year.

    Curry and Thompson vs. Jose and Sasha. I hope somebody has the NBA record book on hand and several gallons of white out.

    We need to win this game. The Knicks never win any more, we’re the laughingstock of the rest of the league, and we also get killed in trades. This team is a huuuuge disaster.

    Porzee had like 4 days off so he will be ready

    whuu whuu wwuuuu Weady? Thiiiit yeah! He weady!

    Anyway, what would it take to get Haywood out of Utah? I just think he will be traded next year before the Jazz are left with nothing. Celtics have the assets to get him and the connection is there with Stevens.

    What we got to do is make a wall around the basket and the other team will pay for it!

    I wonder if Dolan is jealous of Trump for coming up with the idea of running a vanity campaign all the way to Leader of the Free World first?

    Is a Trump/Dolan ticket out of the question? If Dolan is Vice President of the United States, he might toss the Knicks from his plate…

    Galloway did a great job on Curry in the last game so I hope he gets a lot of minutes. Klay absolutely killed us and I think that Sasha’s size and aggravating nature might be our best chance to keep him at least a little in check.

    And yes, we don’t win anymore but when we finally build that wall that the Warriors are going to pay for we’ll start keeping Klay and Steph’s shots out for sure. Have you noticed what little hands Steph has?

    It’s easy if you have a time machine. Go back in time and undo the Marbury trade. Hayward was drafted with the Knicks’ pick.

    The other option is to trade our problematic all-star for picks and try to draft the next Hayward with another team’s pick.

    Its funny because I was watching this random NBA 2K ” What if” scenario on Youtube where it detailed how the Knicks could have won the 2009 championship. My number one take away was the astonishment of how many number 1 picks the Knicks traded in the 2000s. I knew but forgot how many.

    If you have 8mins, check it out. Its pretty disheartening.

    yep, I’ve written about it back when I had the time to write articles here! I’ve seen that video too. I like it because it emphasizes how dumb it is to trade picks when you suck, but it’s also kinda annoying in that it suggests the Knicks should have made a lot of choices that only hindsight reveals would have been smart.

    but it’s also kinda annoying in that it suggests the Knicks should have made a lot of choices that only hindsight reveals would have been smart.

    Yea, I agree on that point. That’s why I just focused on the picks. I just couldn’t get over it lol
