We’re at a really weird point in the season where, with Julius Randle’s injury, these last two weeks of the season are just kind of…meaningless, really.
The Knicks are pretty much locked into the #5 seed, so they don’t have to worry about losing their playoff positioning, but they also can’t get to #4, so these games are all, well, like I said, meaningless. Without Randle, these games aren’t going to be what the Knicks will look like during the playoffs, so they’re just sort of…there.
Still, of course, they DO need to win at least one or two games in these remaining five games to keep their #5 seed (although I don’t even know if that’s the case, as the Nets are struggling a lot), so there’s not no drama, but there’s very little drama.
Hurry back healthy, Julius!
How’s 49 wins looking? Still possible!
Let’s go, Knicks!
