2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks @ A Couple of Guys Who Were Just Issued Pistons Jerseys This Morning

Holy shit, folks, the Knicks are heading into Detroit to take on a shitty Detroit Pistons team that is in the middle of a COVID outbreak, so their already shitty roster is somehow even shittier than normal. I think Bill Laimbeer might be suiting up tonight.

So, Knicks, you better win this won, okay? The Knicks have already won two in a row for the first time since October and now they get to beat up on a Detroit team that is legit starting: Derrick Walton Jr., Frank Jackson, Hamidou Diallo, Saddiq Bey, Luka Garza. Holy shit, people! And the Knicks are only favored by 8 points!

If the Knicks pull this off (and oh man, could you even imagine them not winning this one?), they’ll actually probably move up to the #9 seed in the Eastern Conference. Good time to get healthy, Knickerbockers!

Let’s go, Knicks!

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks @ A Team Playing Greg Monroe Big Minutes

The Knicks head to Minensota to take on the COVID-ravaged Timberwolves, who had to pick up Greg Monroe, who hadn’t played in three years, and plug him into their rotation after he showed up just a couple of hours before the game began…and they still beat the Celtics.

Still, the Knicks desperately need to take advantage of their opportunity here to win two games in a row for the first time in far too long.

Let’s go, Knicks!

2021-22 Game Thread: The Almost Healthy Knicks vs. the Beal-Less Wizards

The Knicks host the Wizards, who will be without their star player, Bradley Beal, so that’s good news.

Also, Toppin and Grimes are back tonight, but no RJ yet (perhaps RJ was actually sick sick? Seems hard to imagine him needing more conditioning than those two otherwise).

They really need to win this one to get their playoff chances back on target, and they really should win this one, so let’s hope that they do just that!

Will the Wizards make it to even the play-in game this season?

2021-22 Game Thread: Some of the Knicks vs. the Awful Pistons (With No Jerami Grant)

It’s funny, this is one of those games where even shorthanded, the Knicks seem to have way more talent than their mostly healthy roster (granted, the Pistons are missing their best player, future Laker Jerami Grant).

So the Knicks really, really need to pull this one out. I wonder how long Kemba Walker will continue to pull a Garry Templeton…

Would you rather have the Pistons' roster or the Knicks, longterm?

2021-22 Game Thread: Some of the Knicks @ Some of the Celtics

The Knicks head to Boston tonight and with Derrick Rose out and half the team in COVID protocols, Kemba Walker is now not just playing for the Knicks again, but STARTING.

You can’t make this weird shit up.

Luckily for the Knicks, while COVID has taken away most of the players we most want to see, the remaining guys are still a reasonable approximation of an NBA team, so this should be fun. It would also be mice to see the Knicks move past the Celtics in terms of “Wow, we’re much worse than we thought we would be, but at least we’re better than you.”

If the over/under for Kemba Walker's points scored tonight is 14.9, what are you taking?

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks vs. A Team They Really Need to Beat

The Knicks head to Houston to take on the shorthanded Rockets in a game that the Knicks simply have to win, even though they are shorthanded themselves.

This would be so darn embarrassing of a loss, let’s hope that it doesn’t happen.

Will the NBA get through the season without a major COVID stoppage?
