  • [ – New York Knicks] Opening Tip: Big weekend for Woodson (Fri, 27 Dec 2013 06:00:26 EDT)

    This is a big weekend for the Knicks. And it could be an even bigger weekend for Mike Woodson. At 9-19, the Knicks entered play Thursday just three games back of Toronto. That’s how bad this Titanic of an Atlantic Division has been. Believe it or not, if things go right in their home-and-home back-to-back against Toronto this weekend, the Knicks could end up one game out of first place by the end of the week. That may be enough for the public speculation over Woodson’s job to die down a bit.
