The Knicks play their last game before the All-Star break tonight, taking on the Golden State Warriors. I got a chance to watch a full game of Warriors action when they played the Bulls the other night and, let me tell you, they are fast. Even without Baron Davis, who is having his annual knee problems, guys like Monta Ellis,
The Warriors play small, so it's Eddy Curry's night to shine. The team plays no semblance of defense, save for the shot-blocking Biedrins, so the Knicks might be best suited to slow it down, drive, and feed the big men. This is an ideal game to demonstrate our dominance of the paint and ownership of the glass. Of course, by saying that, I probably jinxed everything. Either way, road games don't come easy, but if the Knicks can reproduce their effort from last night, they should be able to beat the Warriors. Heading into the break with two straight road wins would be a fantastic boost for this squad.
Once again, this is a game thread, so any comments about the game, tarot cards, Nat King Cole, see-saws, salmon, and "Jungle 2 Jungle" go here. The more comments, the better. (There were 2 comments on the Jazz game thread and 18 on the Lakers game thread. Those games were a heartbreak loss and an exciting win, respectively. Coincidence? I think not.) I'll be back with some twilight game notes. For those of you that commented until the wee hours last night, I thank you, and would love more of the same. Go Knicks. Peace.
