The Knicks are in New Orleans tonight to face Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Pelicans are not particularly good, but nor are they especially bad. They’re sort of in that middle ground with teams like the Hawks, Pistons and Bulls.
So you’d like to see the Knicks beat the Pelicans, but this is surely no gimme. With the Rockets looming tomorrow night, however, it is very important for the Knicks to go into Houston two games over .500 because Houston on the second night of a back-to-back is a scary proposition (thankfully, the Rockets are at least playing the Clippers tonight, so they might be tired, as well, tomorrow).
Let’s hope for some bounce back performances tonight from KP, Rose and Melo (“bounce back” in Melo’s case merely means “don’t hit anyone in the face tonight”).
Let’s go, Knicks!
