2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Trailblazers

The future is now! Frank Ntilikina will start tonight for the Knicks in his first career start. This was made possible by the Knicks facing the dynamic backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum and Emmanuel Mudiay re-defining the word “suck.”

Let’s go, Nick Nolte!

We’re getting Mikal

Sources: The NBA issued a warning to the Chicago Bulls this week on resting healthy players, and the team now plans to play veteran starters Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday again more extensively to close the season.

Anyone got the over/under on what Lillard & McCollum are going to score on us today?

I might actually stay up to watch this now, especially since tomorrow may be a snow day

Fucking unreal. Frank is starting at SG and mudiay is still starting, and Lance is starting.

I bet mgmt. wants Mudiay starting. They just traded for him, and want him to succeed, badly…

Rebecca said something about “personal reasons” if I recall correctly.

@7 looks like it is for personal reasons, so interpret that how you will.

Damian “Steph Curry” Lillard is just so fun to watch.

He’s been playing like a mega superstar in the last stretch of games.

Mike and Clyde really help stomach the bad basketball so much better. I loathe they day they’ll retire.

It really stands out how much easier it is to score on the knicks when Frank isn’t playing.

Ok just looked it up and Frank is a +5, with the knicks down by 6

I can’t fathom that I’m going to have to watch Mudiay for 2.5 more years

Lol breen: “mudiay…spinning….not really going anywhere”

so frank since the asg has a 2p fg% of .447 and a ftr of .177….. those are not bad rates but his assist per 36 is down to 3.7….

i hope he gets a shot to be the pg before the season is out… i don’t think standing and watching is really good for his development…

Maybe Lee and H got into an argument…

That’s be the most hilarious thing ever.

Lol breen: “mudiay…spinning….not really going anywhere”

That is a perfect summary of his entire NBA career

I’m starting to get confident that we can lose every single game until the end if Mudiay plays 38 minutes a night.

Burke’s gotten the tanking memo apparently

the box score doesn’t capture how bad it is to have your worst defender be your center….

I’m enjoying the Troy Williams experience, he has a place in this league.

how many teams don’t have two or even three pg’s better than all of ours….

watched bits and pieces of the game, and, my biggest takeaway from this game is that we may have traded for the worst player in the league…

the sad part is that statistically we should have already known that…

Mudiay tonight : 26 minutes , 1-9 from the field for 3 points and 6 turnovers


We can absolutely lose every game if mudiay continues to play and if Horny decked Lee.

Yes We Can.

I just hope Hornacek is either dumb enough or secretly down with the tank to keep starting Mudiay. At this point even Jack would be an improvement over him. If you make his ts% number be his fg% it’s still terrible.

Emeka Okafor had 9 points, 7 rebounds ans 3 blocks today too, what the hell, Holiday with 17 assists and 2 turnovers too.

It’s almost as if Cousins is maybe not so great for a team?
