I think the Knicks might steal a win tonight, 112-108. I’m going out on a limb and saying “maybe.”
Can we please #MKGA?
I predict a loss and 43 points for Levert.
Start time 19:30? Bro do you even America bro?
Step 1: Deport Porzingis, Kanter, Hezonja, and Frank.
Step 2: Enact 25% tariffs on all future trades. (all acquired players get 25% pay bumps, in order to protect existing Knicks)
Step 3: Encourage cigarette smoking in the locker room because Bob Cousy won 6 titles as a smoker. Dismiss emphysema as a Chinese hoax.
Step 4: All critical coverage of Dolan, Mills, or Perry shall be labeled Fake News.
Step 5: During his post game interviews, Coach Fizdale should randomly drop in the name of a hated former Knick rival to get the fan base riled up. (Ex: “So I think we have a good chance to pick up a few wins on this home stand. (pause)….Reggie Miller.”)
Step 6: Spend $6 billion on a wall around the opponent’s basket. If anyone points out that this is stupid because the teams switch sides at halftime, accuse them of being for unlimited opponent scoring.
Are you ready?
The “new” starting five is back again,
Kevin Knox is shooting around in MSG (not limping, but nobody knows when he’ll be back)
and Mudiay is ready to play (OMG).
P.S. I hate the Nets
PC P.S. I strongly dislike the Nets
Fiz calling Mudiay the team’s best passer would be alarming if I didn’t take not of his statements at this stage as him trying to boost guys’ comfidence. If frank plays decently at PG, and Fiz still gives Mudiay some starts there, well…
Mitch gets surprised by about 1/2 the passes thrown to him
Two more threes for Frank, Trey is gonna have to change his name
Joe Harris is making Timmy look like he took an Ambien
Dunk on me? I’m gonna dunk on you!
Fizdale’s Knicks are a very fun bunch. I really hope he can develop a few players and that the front office can deliver him a cornerstone player or two.
Ha Timmy just got a dose of his own medicine-yelled at by Kanter for not helping on the Allen roll
Frank is a PG
Breen and Clyde take a bathroom break?
Still no announcers on LP Knicks feed?
Whiteside with 13 rebounds and 4 blocks… in the first quarter. (Sorry, I’m watching a different game)
Klay has 22 in the first. And there are still 2 minutes left.
The rest of the teams in the NBA should just all change their names to the Washington Generals.
We might win this one. Might.
How does anyone hate the Nets? It’s like hating air.
It’s the Nets, but frank looked pretty good so far. And Fiz is showing Kanter some TLC by playing him so much against a team he can destroy offensively.
I know there’s a riveting game between the Knicks and Nets, but if you want to watch Klay break the single-game 3PT record, it’s looking like it could happen tonight. He’s halfway there with 8 minutes left in the 2nd.
they should tell Frank he gets $20k every time he gets a dunk attempt blocked or commits a charge. -$20k for making a finger roll.
That was a nice little treat!
When did KP become a veteran?
Robinson has McHale shoulders…only with grapefruit on the ends
10-13 from three in the first 16 minutes. My goodness.
Mitch and Frank>>>Klay
Oh my god feed me more
Holy shit. Did the Warriors just put up 92 in the first half? Is that a typo?
Can’t watch the Knicks game, but glad to hear of the Frank/Mitch contribution to the highlights.
Vonleh has shown such a better defensive motor than I ever remember seeing from him
An athletic Knicks team
This team is fun as hell.
Who would have thought Frank Ntilikina’s assertiveness what would keep TH2’s FGA down so far?
The Knicks as a whole haven’t shot particularly well but Mitchell has 11 points on 5 shots and look at what that does for the offense.
Jordan Bell and the Warriors combine for 92 at the half. He’s so far in the doghouse he can’t get 10 minutes a game without Cousins healthy.
Klay was shooting like 15% on 3s so far, glad to see the Bulls are the ones taking the wrath of his inevitable explosion. How is 92 in a half even possible holy shit.
In Knicks news, Mitch and Frank!!!
That Mitch Rob coast to coast dunk is what we needed to heal this fractured nation
Finally. Mario hits net
Mario is a matador
please remember when Hezonja averages 24ppg at a 65% TS for 6 games in February that, yes, he still sucks at nba basketball
Is it wrong to talk about Trier’s hair…?
Clyde is killing it turn off the the GSW halftime show you fools
Tied up with other stuff or just no access to a feed?
Clyde just called it an asinine foul behind the arc…
Enes Kanter hates coming off the bench so much lol
Thanks, but no tanks.
I actually like Kanter, but will not be mad if he leaves in free agency. We have Porzingis and Robinson already (and hopefully Vonleh).
Gotta give props to Timmy, this might be his best game as a Knick
Timmy spent the first three minutes of this game in a daze and since then has played his best D of the year
HE TIED THE SINGLE GAME RECORD WITH 7 MINUTES LEFT
IN THE THIRD QUARTER WHAT THE FUCK
14 made 3s for Klay Thompson. Nobody in NBA history gets hot like Klay Thompson gets hot.
Zach LaVine is having a very bad night-Klay has somehow managed to take 24 3s by himself.
Bulls announcers are funny.
“At some point you gotta take it personal…no o e is doing that. (Klay) is getting wide open jumpers…look, they’re still looking for him.”
What a bunch of bitches..
How is that even possible
Knicks are worrying
We could still blow this game tbh
At work unfortunately. It is currently 12:38pm Tuesday here in Melbourne, so middle of the work day. Usually I need to watch the replay on LP when I get home, but have the box score and KB ticking over while I work.
That is an unbelievable feat by Klay.
Noah Vonleh would be a very good player if he wasn’t so prone to bad decisions.
Trier really flies
Yeah, Klay has got to be the GOAT of these ridiculous supernova games. He has a 60 point game in 29 minutes played already, and now this ridiculousness.
Athleticism and defense
Who are these guys?
Ouch. Clyde just sniped Ron from the mic.
The MSG crowd knows what DRed wants to see
Trier with the shimmy after the stuff
Milwaukee is for real. They are taking it to Toronto.
That is a really nice stat line from Frank. Tighten up the efficiency and get the assist numbers up a bit and you would be pretty happy with that most nights.
Hey jowles, are you one of the idiots who contributed to the credible, nothing to gain Christine Ford’s gofundme million dollar windfall?
I hope so.
Really fun win!
Bud has got to be the frontrunner for coach of the year so far, I watched a lot of Milwaukee last year because of Giannis and the difference in how they play is absolutely ridiculous, it’s so much better.
You know, watching all these youngsters run up and down the court I was thinking that this was the type of team we should have been watching when the Zen Master was GM.
Instead, we were treated to the exploits of Derrick Williams, Aaron Afflalo, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, etc. etc. etc.
This. Credit where it’s due tho, he’s been much better. Hope he’s learning.
Milwaukee went from a bottom five coach to a top five coach, and it’s pretty apparent. Neither team have their superstars, but Milwaukee is looking great tonight.
You know, Phil did draft Frank and Dotson? And KP.
Looking forward to seeing a Frank/Dot/Mitch/KP/Knox lineup sometime this year.
Yeah, I’m a believer in the Bucks. I’d be more upset about not getting Bud if I didn’t think that Fiz is good and probably a better choice for this team right now. I’m glad we got this W tonight; whoever said it first was right, we needed a win so he didn’t lose the team early. This starting lineup is a step forward.
On the other hand, when your team’s fifth best player can score 50 any given night while playing consistently good D, what’s the point of anyone else thinking they have a chance anytime soon?
I mean, do we even HAVE a fifth best player?
How the hell is Milwaukee scoring so much without Giannis?
Klay was unbelievable.
The Bucks with Bud are real.
And the Kings are 4-3.
WCS has been playing really well this season
Wait, who’s the 4th best player? Jonas Jerebko?
Very fun game in Minneapolis,
Wolves with a good lead, missed 7 consecutive shots, Lakers went for the lead but Gibson blocked Kuzma’s three and then it’s Jimmy’s time.
Lakers 2-5, they’re trying to out tank us!
I think the fourth best player is Cousins. (After Durant, Curry, and Green)
Just what the doctor ordered for Fiz. Easy win, Kanter got to feel the love, frank put up a nice stat line, Hardaway got bloodied but kept playing, and Mitch looked superhumanly athletic.
Yeah, I think Cousins is better than Klay. When healthy, of course.
