Has anyone taken a look at the upcoming schedule for the Knicks? The next eight games are actually pretty winnable: @PHI, vs. ATL, vs. ORL, vs. MIL, vs. SAC, vs. DET, @ WAS, @ MIN.
Other than the Hawks, it’s a fairly “easy” schedule. New York has a pretty good change of running off a few wins.
Well, it starts tonight against the 76ers, a team where we picked off two early season wins against (by pretty much 20 point margins each time). Back then, folks were saying the Knicks lucked out by playing 2 games so early against the 76ers when they didn’t have Bynum.
Guess what? They still don’t have Bynum, they still are not good.. and they really shouldn’t be holding out hope for him either. Still think that was an absolutely terrible trade and I’ll say if every single time.
Key Matchup: Felton vs. Holiday. Looks like Felton may give it a go and Kidd may sit because of his back. Will be good to see Felton back. The offense (and defense) misses him. If Felton sits out, then a good matchup is Chandler vs. Hawes.
Over/Under Game: Put your guesses (over or under) in the reply or comment section. Get 5 out of 5 right, I’ll put your name/blog in the post game write-up. Pushes (ties) count as wrong.
- Melo Points: 29
- Holiday Assists: 8
- Chandler Rebounds: 8
- Hawes Points: 15
- Felton Assists: 5
I’m in Philly tonight for the game. Never actually been to their arena before, not sure what to expect.
