2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Hawks

Happy Martin Luther King day, everyone! The Knicks have some very impressive African American history that is worth celebrating on a day like today. They veeeery nearly had the first African American player in the NBA (a few teams each signed one African American player, the other team just happened to play first in the […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Raptors

The Knicks head to Toronto this afternoon to take on the division-leading Raptors. This will obviously be a tough game, but knowing this team, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Knicks play the Raptors surprisingly well. Melo is much more suited to be a 4 nowadays, so I think he’ll have a good game. […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bulls

The Knicks host the Butler/Mirotic-less Bulls tonight in a game that is a key game for the future of this squad. They’ve been losing some hard-luck games recently, which suggests that they’re probably a little better than this current streak shows, and, of course, being “a little better” is the worst thing for this team […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Sixers

The Knicks and their starting point guard, Derrick Rose, travel to Philadelphia for a very important game for the future of the team. The Sixers are not particularly good and the Chicago Bulls are playing without Jimmy Butler on Thursday, so the Knicks very well could win both of these games and be right back […]

NBA.com: Derrick Rose fined by Knicks for missing game vs. Pelicans

NBA.com reports: Last night, the Knicks hosted the New Orleans Pelicans with hopes of reversing a recent funk in which New York had lost seven of its last eight games. Not only did the Knicks fall last night to the Pelicans, 110-96, but they did so without starting point guard Derrick Rose. Rose was absent […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pacers

Oops, for some reason I thought that this game was starting later. The Knicks really should win this one. EDITED TO ADD: I wrote this post at the end of the first quarter when the Knicks had just cut it to 4, but it didn’t go up until later. Let’s go, Knicks!

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

The Knicks barely lost to the Bucks without Kristaps Porzingis and they will have Kristaps Porzingis back tonight, so this could easily be a win. The Bucks are a good match for the Knicks, defensively, since the Bucks don’t shoot threes very well (and they don’t shoot three period, really). As a mediocre team, the […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bucks

The Knicks host the Milwaukee Bucks tonight in a game that they desperately need to win. However, they will be playing without Kristaps Porzingis for the third game in a row and the Bucks have a guy who the Knicks match up poorly with defensively in Giannis Antetokounmpo. To be fair, most of the NBA […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Magic

This is a big game for the Knicks, as they host the Orlando Magic without Kristaps Porzingis (I don’t like him missing multiple games with a mystery Achilles injury. How has he not had an MRI yet?!?). However, Courtney Lee, Kyle O’Quinn and Carmelo Anthony are all playing tonight, so the Knicks really: A. need […]

2016-17 Game Thread: Knicks @ Rockets

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! The Knicks head to Houston tonight to end 2016 with a tough matchup against the Rockets. This is a very difficult test for the Knicks, made even more difficult with KP, Lee and O’Quinn missing tonight’s game, and I would hate to see them enter the New Year with a […]
