The Knicks head to Boston to take on the Boston Celtics tonight.
The Knicks will be playing without both Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah (and Lance Thomas, for that matter), so you would think that that would spell doom for the Knicks tonight and, frankly, it probably will, but I dunno, I could see the Celtics looking past the Knicks due to Porzingis and Noah not being there and then having Melo and O’Quinn surprise them.
Mostly, though, I’m basing that on my whole “just waiting for the Knicks to win a game they shouldn’t just to mess with their lottery odds” outlook on this season.
Logically, the Celtics should win this one easily, which is good for the Knicks’ tanking purposes, but I dunno…I could see Melo going off. Melo at the 4 has the promise of winning basketball. Don’t be shocked if the Knicks surprise us tonight.
Let’s go, Knicks?
