2021-22 Game Thread: Some of the Knicks @ Almost all of the Raptors

This is going to be a weird one.

The Knicks will be without Randle, Mitch, Kemba, Noel, Rose…it’s not a healthy roster.

But hey, Obi had a really good game against the Raptors the last time that these two teams played, so hopefully he has a breakout game today! The Knicks are currently tenth in the Eastern Conference and the Raptors are eleventh. The top ten teams all play in the play-in tournament, so let’s see if the Knicks can hang in the top ten!

Let’s go, Knicks!

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…

As part of our all-poll content…

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