Hello all,

I am visiting ny this coming weekend with my family to celebrate my fathers 50th birthday and as my present to him, i purchased tickets for saturdays game. we are travelling over from derry, in northern ireland.

Just posting to get the low down on how the teams doing? im not a massive basketball fan, but my dad played quite a bit in his (now distant) youth, and as such i have always had a passing interest.

I cant wait to feel the atmosphere in such a world famous venue as madison square gardens.

Also, ive ordered my tickets for collection at the will call desk. how long before the game should we go to collect the tickets, in order to avoid a lengthy queue?

any info would be greatly obliged.
