Marcus Morris is not even playing, so there’s really no point to this game anymore. Morris doing well against a top team might have helped his trade value, but instead, the only thing you can root for is Mitch maybe doing okay? Frank doing something? Knox perhaps playing a little? This team is so depressing. I don’t even think I could celebrate Mills being fired all that much (I mean, I would celebrate it) unless I knew Dolan wasn’t going to just replace him with, like, Allan Houston or whatever. Dolan is so annoying. He just dampens all possible theoretical excitement with this team. But hey, Dwight Powell, the Mavs’ actual good big man, is out for the rest of the season, maybe that will help the Knicks with the Mavs pick they own in…2021. Ugh. There is nothing to root for with this team.
Morris is playing tonight! Go for it, Mook! Score 40!
Let’s go? Knicks!

DSJ is apparently available for the game tonight, so I have a good feeling about this one.
I honestly forgot he was on the team
Yeah, I would imagine that there are very few untouchable players on the Clippers outside of Leonard and George, but Shamet is as close as you come to untouchable. A valuable rotation player on a rookie deal? That’s like manna from heaven for capped out super teams. The Clippers can keep Shamet on the team through 2022-23 if they want without giving him a non-rookie contract raise!
I’d take zhaire Smith if philly wants Mook or bullock
That’s way too logical of an ask for the Knicks.
Is Mook playing? Saw he was available on Twitter.
He is! That’s great! Something to root for! Go for 40, Mook!
Losing under 10points will feel like a Glorious Win.
Let’s Do it!
On July 8, 2010, I woke up hoping to see LeBron James announce that he would be moving to MSG. I saw that he was going to make the announcement in suburban Connecticut and convinced myself it was strong evidence he was coming to NYC.
Of course, I was wrong. The Knicks never had a chance.
Tonight seems like an appropriate time to mine that pain.
Knicks kind of resemble an NBA team tonight
Taj > AD
Playoffs here we come!
Randle is a fucking bozo.
lmao Rondo doesn’t know who Mitch is
Nice Mitching there…
Light ’em up, Mook!
It’s a headbands league now.
Frank’s going to dunk on someone one day
Could have been Howard. Would have been a nice poster….
we stay winning
Wow, Damyean is lit tonight….
If the 24 footer isn’t there take the 28 footer. I like it.
Steph Dotson !!!
That’s the definition of FUN game!
C’mon Mike. Just let Frank and Dot play all the minutes together from here on out.
Not a good matchup for poor old rondo
Great D by Mitch on Romdo
Despite Frank’s 0/5 i love his aggressiveness tonight.
Box score fuckoff !
Best 0-5 outing Frank will ever have….
And of course, after the young bench played really well, we have to watch the fucking all-mercenary lineup for the last 4:30 of the first half.
hey we’re not losing
sounds like a good one so far…blacked out on the lakers games…they went in the same direction the dodgers did a few years ago and are now on “spectrum” tv…i got fios…oh well…got the tv though tuned to nbatv so should be able to catch some”look-ins” throughout the game…
oh man, just read the news – so long easy e…all time great g-man…
some dumb basketball from randle tonight
at least the effort is there.
They are going to make me feel a little bad for switching to Zion in 20 minutes…
Mook is doing his part.
Maybe they could get a pick for Dotson!
Well I guess Dennis can’t miss more shots than Frank has
I remain one of the utter fools who cannot see how good Frank Ntilikina is going to be in 3-4 years
Like imagine Frank played like he did tonight, but like 4 of the shots went in and he got fouled a couple times.
Mitch has been busting his ass on the glass against some big men tonight
If KAT throws a hissy fit and asks for a trade is this viable plus the Knick’s unprotected 2020 with pick swaps in 21 and 22 plus the 2 Dallas picks?
Well, he’s vastly improved in propensity and ability to get by his guy on offense, and offensive aggression generally in just like the last month, or so. He’s like a different person in that category. Everyone was complaining that he was too passive and not quick-twitchy enough and, lo and behold out of the blue, that’s not the case anymore. That’s what happens with young players, and we just have to be patient and hope he continues developing. That’s what rebuilding means; that’s what developing young talent means.
He’s still missing the second part — actually making the shots he can now get off with his new-found aggressiveness. He has good shooting form, so the hope is that eventually he starts making them. To this end, the Knicks should be giving this growing and improving Frank far more reps, in lieu of playing a mediocre and tapped-out mercenary — but if they did that, they wouldn’t be the Knicks.
It’s sad that I have a better outside shot than Ntilikina.
And Zion was a beast last night.
I turned off the Pellies at about 1115. It appears I missed a real explosion from Zion. He wasn’t great in the first half. 4-4 from three!
Wow, 17 straight points. That is mythic.
