Final Score: Knicks 108, Jazz 81
Soooo…. are the Knicks really going to do this to their fan base?
Are they going to force us to get our hopes up that we can actually make the playoffs after this God awful season?
With another win tonight, it kind of looks like the Knicks are making a last ditch effort to salvage the season… but is it too little too late?
The Pistons and Cavs both lost, so New York gains a game on them. The Hawks play later tonight.
Glad to see the Knicks put away the Jazz early… plenty of rest for the starters as New York is back in action tomorrow night against the Cavs.. big big game.
Carmelo put in one of his best all around games with 29 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists. Stat, JR and Tyson all finished in double figures as well.
Just a great game over all highlighted by one of the nicest plays I’ve see all season. A sort of three man weave up top with Felton, Melo and Tyson which resulted in a Felton lob to Tyson for a dunk. Made me question whether or not Woody was still coaching the team.
Let’s keep this going.
Anonymous asked: if you notice throughout this season there's definitely a trend of Woodson wearing less and less formal attire. From tie to no tie and turtleneck. My theory is he knows he's doomed to be fired so he's just gonna be wearing really informal clothing eventually in like a t-shirt and shorts on the sidelines.
Really nice catch
Game: 63rd of Season, 1st Against Jazz
Betting Line: Knicks favored by 7.0
ESPN Spread Pick: Jazz
A little more on this whole Phil Jackson situation.
It would make sense in a front office role, so Phil can help build a team and attract players - but I can’t stop thinking of why would Phil take the job after seeing how Donnie and Grunwald were treated by the idiot that is Dolan?
How can Phil actually trust Dolan to not interfere?
Anyway, let’s see how that one plays out.
Tonight, two teams with terrible records go at it in the Garden.
I say we come out on top.
Prediction: Knicks 98, Jazz 90
Prediction Record: 31-31
Knicks Reach Out to Phil Jackson -
Ummm… how delusional is James Dolan to think he can get Phil Jackson to come to this mess of a team.
More power to him if he can.
But, I don’t see it happening unless all the pieces are together and it’s clear Phil has a good team to coach. The likelihood of putting the pieces together with Steve Mills and Dolan running the show? Very unlikely.
Game: 62nd of Season, 2nd of 2 Against T’wolves (Series 0-1)
Betting Line: Minny favored by 8.5
ESPN Spread Pick: Minny
File this in the “not surprising at all” category, but a Frank Isola is reporting that Melo has no interest in entering free agency in 2015.
This is non-news as we pretty much all know that Melo is going to opt out this off-season and sign a longer deal - which just makes sense. When you can add more years to a guaranteed contract.. you do it.
Anyway, Knicks are in Minnesota tonight taking on the Timberwolves. Last time we played them, lost by 9 and Kevin Love abused the shit out of us.
I think it’s all but official that this team is done with the season - so don’t expect much winning in the remaining 21 games.
I just hope guys like THJ and Tyler get a bunch of playing time so they can continue to develop.
As far as Love leaving Minnesota? Finding it hard to believe that happens. He genuinely likes his situation there - I mean.. I guess he says that now.. but I don’t see him leaving.
Prediction: T’Wolves 115, Knicks 105
Prediction Record: 31-30
Story of the game was that Melo and Stat had it going, but no one else did.
by the way, Drummond finished with 17 points and 26 rebounds.
this kid is going to be a legit star in the league.
Game: 61st of Season, Game 3 of 3 Against Pistons (Series 1-1)
Betting Line: Pistons favored by 4.5
ESPN Spread Pick: Knicks
The Knicks are making it really hard to predict these games. After 60 games into the season, you just have to assume that we are not a great team.
The Piston, not a great team either, but at least they are somewhat fun to watch with guys like Jennings, Drummond and Josh Smith on the court.
As you already know, I’m a big Drummond fan and I can’t wait to see him play tonight. Felt he was shafted during the draft and the Pistons were gifted a majorly talented kid.
So how will tonight go? No one knows.
Prediction: Knicks 100, Pistons 88
Prediction Record: 31-29
Because I didn’t put out a prediction before the Bulls game yesterday, I’m going to give myself an automatic L on that - but … between you and I, I would have predicted a loss haha
