    One thought to “Knicks Morning News (2014.10.20)”

    1. I suspect we’ll know a lot more about how Fish sees the rotation to start the season after tonight’s game. Coming off the long break and having had a chance to get a decent look at everyone now I expect to see something close to the finished product tonight (for better or, more likely, worse). That’s about as as much intrigue as I think is possible for a preseason game against the Bucks. 9 days until the real thing.
