The Knicks host the Miami Heat in the next game of the amazing NBA In-Season Tournament, which everyone adores (in all seriousness, I don’t even have a problem with it, per se, it’s just kind of silly) with their first chance to avenge their loss against the Heat in the NBA Playoffs.
The Knicks are well positioned to do just that, as Coach Spoelstra is doing wonders with a walking injured roster of a team that is already down a number of contributors because it thought it was acquiring Dame Lillard and they never actually replaced important players like Gabe Vincent and Max Strus.
So hopefully the Knicks can take care of this ragtag Heat team and write their ticket to Las Vegas on Tuesday (or maybe lose a tiebreaker so they don’t have to play the better teams of the tournament? That’d be cool with me, too).
Let’s go, Knicks! Together we will be on the road to 53!
