Man, the quirks of the NBA In-Season Tournament sure are, well, you know, quirky!
The Knicks have to go to Boston for an extra game against the Celtics because both teams lost in the knockout stage of the In-Season Tournament.
In any event, this is a chance for the Knicks to make a huge statement against one of the best teams in the East. The Pacers kicked Boston’s ass in the Tournament, so it’s not like these Celtics are unbeatable (granted, now Porzingis is back after missing four games. KP miss time? That’s unpossible!), so the Knicks really need to win this bad boy to a quiet their narrative this season.
Singing out in glee on the way to 53!
Let’s go, Knicks!
