Game Thread- Knicks at Warriors


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, Derek Fisher, Mickael Pietrus, and Andris Biedrins (AK-47 Lite), get this team up and down the floor. They can score oodles of points in a matter of seconds, and have no shame about firing away from downtown. The recently acquired Stephen Jackson and Al Harrington are two more offensive threats and matchup problems for the Knicks to worry about.

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.

Yo. D-Fish isn't on the Warriors anymore. The Knicks are going to kill the Warriors on the boards...especially David Lee. Without Baron, any win for the Warriors is going to be tough. I'm a Warriors fan by the way.

Seth said...

Duh. Thank you.

Yeah, David Lee should put up some big numbers tonight.

Seth said...

You'd think I'd remember where Fish was, given his game-winner in Utah on Saturday. Late games screw with my brain.

I'm going to the game tonight -- very afraid of Mr. Curry. I'm hoping you really did jinx your boys.

Seth said...

Enjoy! I hope Eddy devours Andris, Zarko, and Adonal. Eddy loves foreign food.

Ha-HA! Oh man. I need sleep.

Two terrible Big East teams still playing past 9:30... I want to see the Allan Houston special.

Seth said...

Is that supposed to be on at 9:30? I might watch.

I should mention before this game gets under way: I love Matt Barnes. Don't ask why. No, not like that. Now carry on with your game experience.

Seth said...

I too have a special place in my heart for former Knicks fringe players.

Seth said...

Why is Malik Rose shooting?

willymilly said...

In that interview Don Nelson had three times the legal limit of alcohol in his body.

Or at least it looked like it.

rodge said...

Seeing Malik figure out what to do with the ball with an open look 18 feet from the hoop makes me wonder if he sold his soul to the devil for the abilty to pull the chair.

rodge said...

5 games back...

Seth said...

This is disgusting. The fact that they're gonna cut this to 6 at some point makes it even more bizarre.

Seth said...

Q picked the right game to get tossed from. This is awful.

In the eloquent words of Quintin Richardson, "fuck this bullshit." I can't take it anymore.
