2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Wizards

The Wizards have been playing fascinating basketball since John Wall received his significant injury that will keep him out of the lineup for almost two months. Tomas Satoransky has really excelled in the starting lineup, but really, they’ve just been passing the ball better as a team. This has led to some pissiness between John Wall and Marcin Gortat with Gortat talking about how much better the team has been (which is a total dick move, really).

Let’s see how the home crowd treats Emmanuel Mudiay when he makes his debut on the court!

Let’s go, Luke Kornet’s awesome practice skills!
