The Knicks head to the Bay to take on the defending NBA Champions, who have been playing very sporadically lately, with Klay Thompson, in particular, looking like he just fell off a cliff, production-wise.
So there is a very good chance that the Knicks could start this West Coast trip 3-0!
Let’s go, Knicks!

We’re winning this game.
FRIDAY NIGHT KNICKS!!
I’m gonna go out on an extremely long limb and say tonight is an RJ bounce back game.
Sadly, the B team announcing team showed up…
Greetings from the Bay…I think things could get ugly tonight…
Geez cyber, u pullin an all nighter?
Yay, we’re winning 1-0!!!
(Positive Raven tonight…)
Until i fall asleep 😀
Yay, Randle not afraid to shoot tonight!!!
Richard Jefferson talking about our weak schedule is impressive commitment to the trolling bit
I hope not, but bad Randle vibes so far
Yay, we’re helping bring Klay Thompson out of his year-long slump!
Yes, Klay will pick tonight to revive his season
Richard Jefferson is a clown, i don’t even listen when he’s talking
Lockdown defender Cam Reddish needs to remember that Klay Thompson can shoot 3s
Yay, four of our first five shots would have been worth three points each if we’d made any of them!
Randle really is madly in love with the 3 these days, which is much better than being in love with the long two but maybe less than ideal in general. To be fair the same is true of Obi this year too. Might be part of them adapting to playing with true centers all the time.
I’m watching the local broadcast…they’re talking about what a great coach thibs is…..yeesh…
Down 8 and Steph hasn’t attempted a shot
Cam heating up
howdy Knick fan not in NJ, thanks so much for posting that betting article, that was fascinating…
Yay, Barrett is perfect with his last 19 three-point attempts!
Can the moderator please delete my post about RJ?
Whiny Knickerbloggers: there’s no way we’ll be bad enough for Wembanyama 🙁
RJ Barrett: hold my beer
How long is this organization going to be in denial as to the fact that Barrett SUCKs
Why in hell Randle tries to score on 3 guys behind the board?
Cam with a nice hustle board off his own miss that Randle promptly dribbled into oblivion
If they keep making 3P after 3P, no team would win against them. Let’s see if they cool off.
Yay, there’s a time out.
Randall really building on that Denver momentum.
Our best hope is that the Warriors bench sucks ass
Yay, we’re beating Klay Thompson by 2 points!
who could have seen this coming?
Obi missing dunks now. Knicks in shambles
Obi is a mess and Barrett blows
Well at least Richard Jefferson is having fun
We scored 19 against the worst defensive team in the league…
I would like to apologize to everyone for wasting valuable board space earlier today by suggesting we might be able to trade Julius Randle
Yay, just like Barrett is now perfect with his last 20 three pointers, the whole Knicks team is perfect with their 10 three point shots tonight!
If we win one more game the road trip was a success, so no need to panic because of one game.
Looks like RJ took time out of his schedule to teach the other Knicks how to shoot
enjoy the show hubie!!!
smashing pumpkins is gonna be way cool, good rock there…real emotional driven stuff at times…
you’re right about different show prices, when all the tickets are above $250 or whatever, definitely gives pause to attend…
I remember looking at some nine inch nail tickets and thinking – oh hell no…I don’t know, I’d really like to see him perform, so, I don’t know…I’ll probably eventually grab a ticket…it will have to be at a primo venue…
i like small venues, outside of a general admission situations, i could though see myself in the future paying a little extra for seats to see someone I really enjoy…
the whole comprehension thing may not always be so reliable, my ears seem to be working okay, my eyes though do kind of suck these days…
i’m big with visuals, so yeah, think I may start looking to get a closer view for seated shows…
Hey thibs…there’s a French guy on the bench who can shoot…maybe try him…oh wsmait.. you’re committed to a 9 man rotation…wtf…
Let’s try to take this to single digits in the 2nd quarter. Looks like if it’s super late here, i turn into Cyber, the optimist. 😀
We make 3 3s and those 2 Obi dunks and we’re right in it but instead it feels like game over
Rare is the night when every rotation player sucks…
do you monitor a sleep score cyber?
Nice alleyoop by RJ. #NOT
5-23? Seems bad
That RJ pass was closest he’s come to making a three in weeks.
That RJ pass was closest he’s come to making a three in weeks.
How are we only down 16?
Our misses are so far off…
The Warriors aren’t even doing anything particularly special, we just can’t score.
For the love of god can we defend the perimeter just a little more? This feels like a weird Thibs hang up at this point.
Stubborn ass thibs won’t play grimes or Fournier because 15 games into an 82 game season he decided he can only play 9 guys…what a moron
I mean this is pegged as a pretty sure loss but we’re making it really easy for the Warriors. And Steph is taking the night off so far.
Is “what do you mean?” a valid answer? 😀
RJ tied for team lead in fgm with 2
What is our future coach doing by Kerr’s side?
“ How are we only down 16?”
Feels like we should be down 30
I used to be addicted to eating late, chocolate included, and playing video games…mostly just jacked on adrenaline and avoiding tomorrow…
I’m kind of getting addicted to good sleep now…slow progress…
Obi…and Julius…thibs is desperate
Randle/Toppin frontcourt sighting!
The Knicks not helping me get out of a second episode of the Crown
I’m done…this is sad…
This team doesn’t defend for shit.
It’s saturday, so i’ll sleep until late tomorrow
you guys ever feel like we’re the npc team from an 80’s basketball movie where we need to be just credible enough that the real protagonists rallying win over us isnt a gimme
We’re gonna make a run…
I’m not a big Thibs hater to be honest, I could take him or leave him. But this year’s team does not look like a well coached team. So many possessions end with low quality shots, and then on the defensive end the rotations and assignments are a complete mess. The Knicks are currently down by 19 but are getting thoroughly outclassed.
They just make the game of basketball look very difficult.
Wrong…this was inevitable…just ask strat’s spreadsheet
RJ is a complete fucking mess, he should be sitting
there’s a bunch of gear to help monitor:
– your bed, don’t have this one 🙁
– this ring thing called oura, I don’t really enjoy jewelry
– apple watch, samsung whatever it’s called, others too I’m sure
– fitbit, I have bought way too many of these things over the last year or so…they’re cheap and they work…
it doesn’t really irritate my skin, so that’s good…I got it to monitor my heart rate, cuz of the anxiety stuff…
tonight has been a jv vs varsity scrimmage, three guesses which side we are
Yay, Barrett leading the team in minutes.
Damn. I took a nap today to stay up for this game!
in general, what a blessing to have good home medical tech so easily accessible…
jowles and noble, start getting comfortable, you both may be here for another hundred years or so 😛
Geo, it was just a (bad) joke. No, i don’t monitor, although i have a smartwatch and could do it if i wanted. I don’t like to go to sleep with the watch.
Not going away…
now…that’s just being mean…
FINISHED THAT HALF STROOOOONG!
honestly, since donnie slipped that knick fan philosophy of his in my head couple/few years ago – I don’t really give a shit what happens…
sorry, not sorry…
it’s like free time to do whatever I want…
Wow only down 11. Didn’t see that coming.
this plus the knicks having a little life in them has talked me back from the ledge of turning this off and doing something else
Okay, they finished the 2nd qtr in better shape than they began it.
11 pts is not too much to comeback.
Yay, Knicks are actually really the #1 scoring team in the NBA in the second quarter of games, and ended that one down by just 11…
Well, i leave the game in a good position to win (LOL) and i’m going to sleep believing that you guys will control the 2nd half and get the W. See you tomorrow, people.
the ring bothered me…the watch thing is thin and loose…
the data is useful, the habits more so…
my go to is: black screen piano music…
yeah, I still got some work to do on my sleep schedule, fluid intake prior to sleep…
sorry for the sleep tangent cyber…i’ll leave you in peace now to enjoy the game…
Some nice play by Brunson and Randle at the end of the quarter there, got this back to being a manageable game despite the Knicks looking horrendous for much of that half.
You know at some point Steph will decide enough is enough, but at least we’re not rolling over (so far)
You gotta admit this is a pretty good tune
It feels like Golden State just took their foot off the gas a bit but sometimes that comes to bite teams. Not counting on it though.
Markiten with a monster game tonight, Zach Lavine otoh, yikes…
Serious question: who can we trade RJ to?
interesting part of the game, we could go down by 20 something pretty quick…
Yay, Hartenstein closing down Curry on the perimeter!
RJ is reaching all-time high levels of “I’m positive that shot isn’t going in” for me and I’m a Knicks fan who started following the team in the 2000s
Yay, that leaping Randle looking to pass — oh fuck — coming down — pass to a Warrior play made me laugh out loud in a way that frightened the family.
That’s on Hart, he overcommitted…
Just tuning in…time for a Knicks run!
i think ive seen enough tonight fellas… have a good one for those of you brave enough to see this one through
Fournier was awful and deserved to lose his rotation spot. That said, at least he was willing to actually shoot the 3 on kickouts. Our entire starting lineup just looks to catch and drive.
Well that could have been worse…Rose coming alive…
Who was worse tonight, RJ or Obi?
Obi has been horrible tonight.
Obi! Great block.
And IQ drew that foul like it was 2020
Do the Knicks ever run a clean 3 on 1, 2 on 1, or 3 on 2 fast break? I’ve seen CYO teams in Queens run the fast break better.
Yay, five more points and Barrett has a great game at 20!
Defensive rebounding a problem again tonight.
Sims is big
Sims could use some work on his touch around the basket but he seems to do a lot of good things out there
Dare I say it? They miss Cam’s perimeter D.
I guess you have to hand it to the world champs tonight…
Hart might be riding the pine when Mitch comes back.
Brunson off all night…
RJ Barrett just keeps shooting. Unbelievable. He’s the worst shooting guard/wing we have and he has the most or 2nd most shots in the game almost all the time. At what point does Thibs stop this! It’s getting comical, but in a very bad way. He should be 4th option. I know it’s somewhere between difficult and impossible to bench him, but something has to be done.
Fucking IQ can’t hit a shot…
Just not enough good players.
Obi was really bad, yet somehow is a -2.
Another scintillating performance by our bonus baby Barrett
Figure Cam to miss the rest of the trip so probably Grimes Time.
So Grimes is healthy enough to play garbage time, but not healthy enough to relieve RJ Barrett from playing 40 minutes when he’s allegedly sick but more importantly playing like shit
Now that Evan is getting the full Kemba treatment, let’s look at Leon’s blunder as a whole:
He committed $91 million to a starting backcourt that doesn’t even play.
He’s already given up one lottery pick to unload Kemba. And it really looks like he’s going to use another one to unload Evan.
This is really hard to top.
I couldn’t watch most of the game, but I see Sims has the best plus minus by far of any Knick who played substantial minutes. His stat line wasn’t gaudy, but he must have done something right.
Sims was fine.
Something’s gotta give with RJ. I don’t understand how he’s getting all this leash from Thibs, but surely it can’t last forever. We’re not the best team ever but he’s cost us games and has given us almost nothing. Just embarrassing stuff
What do you want to bet Grimes goes from situational to starter if Cam can’t go against Phoenix? And what do you want to bet Cam misses at least 2+ weeks- it’d be so totally Cam to miss a month just when he’s starting to make some progress.
We can start Jae Crowder in RJs spot. I’m done with him.
RJ for Jordan Poole- who says no? Obviously the Warriors even though Poole signed a much bigger deal than RJ, hasn’t played great, and might have a chemistry issue with one of the franchise cornerstones.
That gambling article was fascinating. That’s why my weird gambler brother uses many different gambling sites.
I’ve effectively been kicked from several sites
He does it all as a weird hobby, so he’s been fine so far, as he doesn’t bet that much. He’s just good at it and he enjoys it. Way too much in my opinion (as I am met with these long sprawling texts about his various gambling thoughts all the time), but at least he’s not bad at it.
I was right in the middle of suggesting that it was fair enough for Rose to not be willing to risk giving Sims the backup role this season, but as I thought about it, is it fair enough? Shouldn’t he be able to judge this stuff better and realize that maybe backup center wasn’t where the Knicks should use their extra free agent money this season? I like Hart, but if you have Sims on your team already, shouldn’t you know your own talent well enough to be, like, “Okay, we actually have an in-house backup already, let’s use this money on a defensive wing” or whatever. Like Bruce Brown, for instance. Wouldn’t Bruce Brown play a lot on this team?
The argument against trusting Sims is basically that the Knicks couldn’t afford risking a key backup spot on a young player in case Sims turned out to not be for real, but, like, why think that way with a team that already needs a lot of help to take the next step?
In other words, I love Sims and I think Mitch/Sims is an awesome center pairing (if you want to play these types of centers, that is).
Mitch hasn’t exactly been an iron man so far in his career so I’m guessing that probably factored into their thinking.
But then you have Randle/Obi lineups as backup to the backup, and Randle/Obi lineups made sense to use more anyways, right?
I 100% believe that IQ has been very good on defense this year. I am not knocking him at all this season on defense, even if he got burned a lot tonight. However, the important thing tonight is how the Warriors know how to create looks for players. It is a lot harder to stop a guy when his team is specifically trying to create looks for him.
It is what still makes me shake my head at Jamal Murray’s stupidity last game. Everyone in the world knows they need a three pointer for the tie, so he just dribbles the ball with Quickley on him, like, assuming that Quickley will just say, “Okay, fine, shoot the three” at some point. Quickley played fine hard nose defense on the play, but Murray should have taken it for granted that his defender would be guarding him not to shoot and he just then…dribbled the ball and assumed that he would get a look still. What a foolish possession.
It reminded me of the possession following LJ’s four-point play when Jackson was triple-teamed him and he still tried to shoot it!!
Hart is still a good young player, not sure you can fault the Knicks for signing him.
I wouldn’t call the Randle/Obi lineup a good insurance plan.
