It’s the penultimate game of the preseason for the Knicks!
And this game against Washington will mark the first time that the Knicks will face an opposing team’s starting point guard this preseason. Let us hope that it goes well.
Derek Fisher is experimenting a little bit with Jose Calderon still out with a sore calf (he would play if this was a regular season game – in the old Knick regime, I’d say “Jose Calderon scheduled to lose his leg next week” but this new regime is supposedly more transparent, so I’ll take them at their word and presume Calderon is okay and just resting the calf because it is the preseason) so Shane Larkin and Tim Hardaway will start together in the fastest Knick backcourt since…uhmmm….anyone know of a faster starting backcourt for the Knicks than Larkin and Timmy?
Melo, Smith and Dalembart round out the starting rotation.
If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, here is Phil Jackson’s candid (?) take on each Knick.
Let’s go Knicks!
