Click Here To Register...] know full well how poor play against the opposing conference will hurt a team’s season. Losers of two straight, the Knicks look to keep the banged-up Kings winless against the East on Friday night. New York (28-39) is 7-14 after winning six of its previous seven, putting in doubt its hopes of returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2004. The Knicks trail eighth-place Chicago as part of a crowded group of teams trying to secure the final postseason spot in the East. With some tough matchups against West teams over the next 11 days, New York’s postseason chances might be clearer entering April. The Knicks will face New Orleans, Utah and Denver, who are all in playoff position in the West.
Nate the great had an off night against New Jersey. expect him to show that fearlessness he has and have a great game versus sacramento.

MOBB DEEP- "Survival of the Fittest"

Nice Game-Thread Sly.....how will the Knicks home performance turn-out after the embarrassing home-blowout from a team in their own division with the same record? will the Knicks give the Sac-Crap-Kings their 15th win of the season in MSG?
Another home loss to a team with a worst record than us will not look good on the home-front of something that started out decent in the beginning and tearing it self apart at the end.
We gave-up 3-DNP players for Larry Hughes (props to Walsh)....however did'nt Dantoni know that Hughes is a DNP player too....or a 12 to 18 mpg player like Tim Thomas.
We do not need to see Hughes on the court alongside Duhon any more this season (check the Knicks last 10 games before the arrival of Larry Hughes).
Hint: wheres the effort....there was none vs the Nets.
A Knick-Fan would think with the return of Duhon we would see several "pick n roles" from Duhon & Lee whom mastered the pick n role this season on tougher, bigger, and better defensive teams than the Nets....but we only seen the two players run that play twice in the Nets game. Why?

if we lose this game, i'm done with this team til the draft..........
Mar 20, 2009, 10:20
I feel you Moz, I'm hanging in there until The Yankees are up and running. Then I'll put my time and focus on them...
Mar 20, 2009, 10:35
lol, think i might go back to my live, wake me up when this season ends...............
Mar 20, 2009, 12:10
nice thread SLy, im digging the david lee part lmao.
if we lose this game i will official give up on our playoff chances this year. we have to win this game. especially against a low team like the queens.
Mar 20, 2009, 12:38
I follow the Knicks year round, so I'll still be paying attention and rooting for them whether they win or lose.
Mar 20, 2009, 12:43
Nice Thread Sly! That David Lee Thing Is Hilarious. A W would be spectacular tonight... Lets do this!
Mar 20, 2009, 16:27
Survival of the Fittest is the perfect joint since this is probably our last playoff push in a close race for the 8th spot. We're 3 games out right now and Chicago is off tonight. They play the Lakers tmw. We can still do this...

interesting thread.. short but early which is 100x better than an hour before!!
Mar 20, 2009, 17:48
Kiyaman, Prince and G-Fly, thanks for the love (no homo). doing the game thread is fun, but takes **** loads of time.
tonights game is either going to be really entertaining or really disgusting. its all gonna depend on our Knicks. we cant lose this one. gotta give that effort. Kings might not have kevin martin (virus), and mccants is out for sure.
Mar 20, 2009, 18:00
ny swagger, my thoughts exactly. survival of the fitt', only the strong survive......gotta beat our competition for the 8th spot.
jpz, of course. i always liked when the thread was done early so that everyone can get out their different opinions way before the game started.
Mar 20, 2009, 18:18
I think they are already planning their vacation time. I lost all hope when they failed against the Nets.
Mar 20, 2009, 18:23
lmao this thread is hilarious especially the starting lineups
Mar 20, 2009, 18:25
Good game thread, Sly.
Larry Hughes=Mickey Mouse
He sucks. He has no business being a starter in the NBA. The Knick starting lineup should be like this:
