Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bucks


The recently ravaged Knicks are back home this evening to take on Damir Markota and the Milwaukee Bucks. Both teams are stricken with multiple injuries. Charlie Villanueva and Earl Boykins are both hurting for Milwaukee, while Stephon Marbury and Quentin Richardson might be out for your Knicks. David Lee should be returning to play from his hangover flu-like symptoms.

The last time these two teams met (a game that may or may not have actually happened), the Michael Redd-less Bucks surprised the Knicks with hot outside shooting and solid defense. Basically, if the Knicks show the same kind of perimeter defense that they did on Wednesday, they're gonna get torched by Mo Williams and Michael Redd. Hopefully, they'll have a bit of a fire lit under their collective asses after that embarassment in Philly.

This is your game thread, so leave any comments about the game, false teeth, coloring books, "Sister Act", and marbles as the day goes on. I'm missing this one (last time, I promise), but I'll throw together some kind of recap after the game. Your comments help. Go Knicks. Peace.

P.S. I just can't get enough of those old Bucks logos. That deer intrigues me. How would you describe its expression? How do you spin a basketball on a hoof? I know it has antlers and the team is the "Bucks", but doesn't it have very effeminate features? I wanna get to the bottom of this.

Going to game, in my brand new Knicks sneakers (the adidas ones for every team. hot fire). My goal for the evening is to get close enough to Charlie Villanueva to see his eyebrow ridges, thus answering the ageold question. Go NY go NY go.

What's the age old question? Does he eat babies? The answer to that is yes. Have fun at the game! If you wanna type up a few game notes by say...midnight EST, I'd probably put em up in the game recap. Up to you.

My aloepecia jokes never go over well.

Seth said...

Haha. How many aloecia jokes do you have?

You want game notes? Here's the insider scoop.
Carlos Villanueva wrapup: no hair.
Poor attendance tonight.
During warmups, Jerome James played a fake one on one games with Malik Rose. Threes were taken. There were no casualties.
Actually, Jerome took down one of the ball kids on a drive to the hoop, so make that one scarred for life, none killed, none wounded.
New Knicks PA announcer, which gets me pissed off since I can do most of the old guys calls at will. I'm biased, but he sucks.
Brian Skinner should rethink his hair situation. First off, not a great lookin guy. Second off, the no hair on top but creepy beard with no moustache looks just weird. He looks like a Black Amish guy or an ancient Egyptian pharoah.
During introductions, the crowd applauded Jerome James. Next time I go to MSG I'm gonna sneak in a double-barrelled shotgun and take down the first five applauders I see. Or just Jerome James.
Also, not to pile on Jerome, but he's listed on the big screen as 6'11, 245. Isn't he 7'2 and at least 280?
Aren't the Knicks City Kids creepy? Just wondering.
Mo Williams: Knicks Killer.
At halftime, I checked out a memorabilia booth the Knicks were setting up, and one of the items was the famous Steph finger roll ball over Mehmet Okur. I was ready to buy it, but the asking price was about 980 dollars more than I had on me, so I walked away.
Does Bruce Bowen play for the Bucks? Nate Rob and Lee both came down on peoples feet, and Lee left for the rest of the game save a tiny stint. Surprisingly, Jeffries replaced him well, although he still can't finish.
Who is Jared Reiner?
Marbury was sick down the stretch, drainin 3s, jumpers, taking it to the rack for fouls, and this one time taking a fader that bounced up off the rim about 3 feet and dropped down.
Good god, Jamal Crawford. Thats all I gotta say.
Oh yeah, and fuck you too, Mo Williams.
Did anyone see what happened on the final play? Marbury held the ball for 15 seconds, drove, and put up an airball, but Bogut got called for a loose ball foul with .8 seconds left. I didn't see the foul, but it must've been big for them to make a call with .8 seconds, and I still have no idea what happened.
Up one at the line with .8 seconds left, I say you brick intentionally. Channing Frye, however, doesn't care for such antics.
In closing: 2 games back from the Heat and the Magic, so get pumped.
Game Notes: Not my cup o tea. I'll leave this to you in future, although hey, 1-0 in Rodge-noted games.
