2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers

The Knicks return home after a tough road trip to host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are having an eerily similar season to the Knicks. Both teams were expected to be awful and yet, so far, both Cleveland and the Knicks have been mediocre more than bad. The Cavs are currently tied for the #6 seed […]

NY Post: Knicks fade late in loss to Jazz to end road trip with dud

I figure this way, Farfa can do his awesome recaps whenever he gets a chance, but in the meantime, we could have a general recap thread rather than drag out the game thread ad infintum. From Marc Berman at the Post: There was no stopping Utah killer Austin Rivers in the first half Tuesday. The […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Jazz

The Knicks head to Utah for a rematch with the Jazz, who have won EIGHT STRAIGHT since losing to the Knicks. So we all know what that means, right? Bad News for the Jazz! Oh wait, shit, that’s the Bad News Bears slogan. Sorry, it means…might as well lose this one! Especially since the Jazz […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Trailblazers

The Knicks head to Portland to take on the Trailblazers who, due to the crazy bunching together in the Western Conference standings, are somehow the current #4 seed despite only having an 8-6 record! The Blazers, of course, are in the news for having TWO players break bones in their body, with both Jusuf Nurkic […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Kings

Coming off of a resounding victory against the Golden State Warriors, the Knicks head to Sacramento to face a sputtering Kings team with an excellent chance to go OVER .500! Hopefully Hali has a shitty game. It’d be swell if Quickley outdid him. Let’s go, get a winning record, Knicks!

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Warriors

The Knicks head to San Francisco to take on the Golden State Warriors, led by Wadrell Curry. The Warriors have been struggling, so this is a perfect chance for the Knicks to get back to .500 ahead of some winnable games. Let’s go get back to .500, Knicks!

NY Post: Elfrid Payton clinging to Knicks starting spot with stellar defense

From Marc Berman: Like a cat’s nine lives, Elfrid Payton has survived all point-guard comers to hold onto the starting job for a second straight season — even turning back surging rookie Immanuel Quickley. Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina have proved no competition — each suffering early-season injuries to eliminate them as contenders. Each […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Magic

The Knicks host the Magic on their annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee (I used to go these a lot back in the day). The Knicks actually WEREN’T home last year, which irritated the Knicks a lot (they were also on the road in 2018, but that was because of a scheduling conflict with […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

The Knicks head to Boston to play the Celtics, as the Boston squad is depleted due to injuries and COVID. Kemba Walker miiiiiight return from injury today. We shall see. The Knicks have lost five straight and the Celtics have won five straight. Let’s hope that both streaks end today. Let’s go, streak breaking Knicks!

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ the Cavs’ New All-Center Starting Lineup

Now that Jarrett Allen is on the Cavaliers and the Cavaliers’ starting backcourt is out due to injury, I think they’ll probably go something like: Javale McGee at the point (they actually tried a little bit of point McGee in the preseason, hilariously) Andre Drummond at shooting guard Larry Nance at the three Thon Maker […]
