2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks @ Hawks

The Knicks head to Atlanta to take on the red-hot Atlanta Hawks as the ‘Bockers try to avoid falling to .500 for the first time all season.

The Knicks have been alternating wins and losses for a while, so, well, I guess that this will be a win then!

The Knicks will be without both of their starting point guards and Taj Gibson remains out and Nerlens Noel might not make it, either, as his knee is acting up again. That’s not fun.

HOW IS 56 WINS LOOKING? They just need to go on a crazy win streak like the Hawks!

The Hawks are on a seven-game winning streak. Will the Knicks win seven games in a row at any point this season?

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Suns

The Knicks host the defending Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns at the Garden tonight.

Derrick Rose is out again tonight, but Mitch Robinson is back from concussion protocol so the Knicks will have their two-headed center monster tonight, which is very nice. I love the two-headed center monster so much.

The Suns are obviously a tough test for the Knicks, but it’s not like the Suns are unbeatable. I think the Knicks can win this one.

HOW IS 56 WINS LOOKING? If they could pull off a surprise win tonight, it’d look a lot better!

Are the Phoenix Suns the most cursed NBA franchise?

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Lakers

The Knicks host the Lebron-less Lakers tonight at the Garden. Annoyingly, they were very close to being without Anthony Davis, as well, who woke up today with flu-like symptoms but will play through it (hopefully he is not as good as normal).

On the Knicks’ side of things, Rose, Taj and Mitch are all out. Thibs suggests that he will play IQ and Burks as the backup point guard, so I guess Grimes will get some burn, perhaps?

HOW IS 56 WINS LOOKING?

Bette before Anthony Davis said he was going to play, but I am still confident.

Did the NBA get it right with Lebron James' suspension?

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bulls

The Knicks head to Chicago for a matchup against the Chicago DeRozan/LeVines.

The Bulls are extremely shorthanded, with Tony Bradley being pretty much their only center, but the Knicks will be without Mitchell Robinson, as he’s dealing with a concussion from his scary smack to the face in last night’s game. Luckily, Nerlens Noel will play and there’s a chance Taj Gibson will be good to go against his old team.

The Knicks really need to make a statement win tonight in this tough seven game stretch.

HOW’S 56 WINS LOOKING? Not great, but still possible!

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks Host the Pacers For a Rematch

The Knicks host the Pacers as they try to get revenge for a pretty rough beatdown where Myles Turner shot like Reggie Miller.

Let’s hope that that does not happen this time around. I am confident that the Knicks will not get beat like that again, but will they find another way to lose? Hopefully not.

Noel is out again, but so is Chris Duarte for Indiana.

HOW IS 56 WINS LOOKING? Not great, but really, a couple of wins in a row and it will be right back to looking good!

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks @ the Hornets

The Knicks head to Charlotte to take on the sub-.500 Charlotte Hornets to hopefully get things back on track.

Hopefully Kevin Knox gets some burn to see him match up against Miles Bridges, who was taken a few picks after Knox, just for the lulz. Maybe some three on three?

Nerlens Noels is out, so that’s a shame. The Knicks really need to get this one.

HOW’S 56 WINS LOOKING? Not awesome at the moment, but there’s still time!

Should the Knicks try to target Miles Bridges as a sign and trade this offseason?

2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks vs. the Remnants of the World Champion Bucks

The Knicks host the under .500 Milwaukee Bucks at the Garden tonight.

The Bucks actually are coming off of a win against the even more depleted Philadelphia 76ers, so I guess this isn’t quite as easy as it may appear, but boy, it really would be swell for the Knicks to take advantage of the Bucks when they’re doing and get two wins against them.

Noel and Robinson are both questionable for tonight.

IS 56 WINS STILL ON TARGET? Yes, my prediction is still hanging in there!

As part of our all-poll content…

Would you swap head coaches with the Bucks if you were the Knicks?
