welcome back hahahaha
Garner the strength in your loins my fellow brothers in finger banging. It's another thread ala stimuli in which we cheer and jeer together under one banner.
Crazy8s Thread Soundtrack. Seriously, are you lads listening to these?
No video more fitting! Press play NOW or be stricken with terminal gayness.
WE ARE THE
NEW YORK KNICKS
All jests aside, we're facing a conference foe on our turf.
Atlanta. Had our number for years. This one's about redemption, solidification and unification.
AND IT'S BITTER!
PREPARE FOR A BATTLE OF THE SKIES!
Imperative Reading - Crazy8s Latest GT Addition To Be Added Per GT:
◎Probing The Enemy◎
Rebounding, as our chief source of inadequacy, is of greater concern than usual V Atlanta.
Per game - including 2nd unit players - the Hawks average 32.1 rebounds throughout positions 3-5, for a total of 40.1 rebounds each outing. That's an average. Circumstantial per opponent.
The Knicks, however, average 27 RPG through positions 3-5 and in a system revolving around volume scoring, that is (and will remain) a handicap.
FG% for and against: This again is relative to the 'system' and it's theoretical success. Atlanta have a FG% of .467 while allowing .451 defensively. The Knicks, unsurprisingly, have a lower conversion rate of .464 while allowing .466
Sadly, given the season's former encounters, beating ATL requires defensive effort.

Amare Stoudemire(notes) is eager to try to return for the New York Knicks’ final game before the All-Star break. It could be a physical affair.
The Knicks have suffered two nine-point losses to the Atlanta Hawks and the last meeting featured a fight heading into Wednesday night’s game at Madison Square Garden.
Stoudemire missed his first game of the season Saturday in New York’s 105-95 win at New Jersey due to a sprained right big toe. The Knicks (27-26) have been off since that game, and the All-Star forward believes he’ll be back against the Hawks (34-20).
“I should be ready to go by Wednesday,” Stoudemire said.
He will probably need to be at his best since Atlanta won 99-90 at New York on Nov. 27 and 111-102 at home Jan. 28.
“We got a game Wednesday against Atlanta, it’s going to be a tough game,” Stoudemire said. “That’s the last game before the break so we can go into the break on a good note if we get that win and get great rest for the second half of the year.”
Last month’s meeting took place in what forward Josh Smith(notes) called a “playoff atmosphere.” The intensity was evident due to an incident involving Atlanta’s Marvin Williams(notes) and New York’s Shawne Williams(notes).
With 43.7 seconds remaining, Marvin Williams pushed Shawne Williams in the back, starting a brief altercation that led to each player being ejected and charged with fighting fouls. Marvin Williams was suspended for two games and Shawne Williams one game for throwing punches.
Smith was also fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture during the game.
Stoudemire has averaged 25.5 points in the losses to Atlanta, but shot 44.4 percent. The Hawks placed five players in double figures both times, with Al Horford(notes) averaging 18.0 points and 11.5 rebounds while helping slow down Stoudemire.
New York shot 27.0 (where we ****ing live and die with what is a very talented offensive team. Why?) percent on 3-pointers in those games. Atlanta is one of the league’s best in defending the 3 at 32.9 percent.
The Knicks were much better from long range Saturday, making 16 of 34.
“I thought the ball movement was a little bit better,” coach Mike D’Antoni said. “We could penetrate and got into the lane a little bit and kicked it out. When we do that, we usually find good shots.”
The Hawks opened a stretch of seven straight road games with Monday’s 94-79 victory at Detroit. They improved to 17-11 on the road for the second-best mark in the East after losing two straight at home.
“We haven’t handled our business at home,” coach Larry Drew said. “It may be a good time to go out on the road.”
Smith had 27 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks, winners of eight of 10 on the road.
“Teams are going to have tough times,” Smith said. “It’s how you work yourself out of it. We didn’t stop believing and we just played that much harder tonight.”
Smith is averaging 25.0 points on 58.2 percent shooting and 10.3 rebounds in his last four games. Leading scorer Joe Johnson(notes), meanwhile, is averaging 10.3 points on 37.1 percent shooting in his last three.
Why play STAT in this game? Give him as big a break as possible as the race for 6th percolates.
Should be a great game.
I still believe we are venly matched with ATL. almost every matchup tonight is going to be intresting. Bibby and Felton is the one im looking at.
Clyde Frazier to start at Point guard tonight, going off for 15 assists and 10 steals limiting Bibby to 5 points, 4 assists and 7 turnovers
This will be a huge win if we win
I expect this will be one of the toughest games of the year. The knicks want this win going into the ASG. They are pumped up for this one. I think any match with ATL is going to have that playoff atmosphere now. we match up well with them and i think if a couple of the bench/2ndary guys (fields, mozgov, williams) can contribute then we can win.
this game totally depends on if wilson chandler has woken up from his slump. With wilson playing bad, its almost impossible for us to win. We need his defense against josh smith. We also need fields to have atleast 8 rebounds. Amare has to have a double double against horford. Crawford will want to go off on us tonight for sure, so when joe johnson goes to the bench, we need to keep crawford contained. Bibby is having a rough week, i think felton can contain him, just no open 3's.
This is one of those games in which I feel the Knicks will make a lot of their shots.Someone is going to come off the bench and score close to 30 points.The Hawks are one of the better teams in the NBA but they aren't the '72 Lakers.The Knicks need this win in order to enter the all star break on a high note.
I want this win so bad my dick's gettin hard.
I've already seen Felton settle for a couple of jumpers...
