Game 42: Knicks vs. 76ers, 7:30pm

Screen shot 2014-01-22 at 9.27.24 AM

Looking to snap their four game losing streak, the Knicks will host the Philadelphia 76ers at MSG at 7:30pm this evening.

After playing well a couple weeks ago, the Knicks (15-26) are back to their losing ways, dropping the first two games in their eight game homestand by a combined 37 points. Luckily the Sixers (13-28) are also pretty bad, so the Knicks might have a shot in this one.

How many must win games has this team had so far this season? Add tonight to the list. The Knicks simply have to beat an inferior Sixers team at home. Has to has to has to.

The Knicks projected starting lineup:  Felton, Shumpert, Melo, Bargnani and Chandler.

The Sixers projected starting lineup: Michael Carter-Williams, James Anderson, Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young, Spencer Hawes.

Bargnani says his arm is sore. Gives a confusing answer as to whether it's been checked, but says he'll know more tomorrow.

Dolan's not going to do jack. He wants Melo to be frustrated for his free agency remarks. He was disloyal

How can people on this blog be upset with others complaining about how the team is playing. They are playing terribly, it's no secret. You CANNOT tell others how to root for their favorite team especially when they don't warrant anything positive being said about them.

if melo didnt try to insert his game once the knicks were up in the fourth quarter they would have won...melo hasnt learned that when the team is clicking just let them click but melo always has to try and insert his game ...they were doing fine without his turnaround shots

If I was the coach, io would demand that no one our team should make more than 1 dribble unless they are going to the rim.  Players must move the ball with only 1 dribble max allowed and that dribble better be be necessary.  

If we move the ball we can get such better shots and make the opposing team play defense.  Our PGs down't go to the rim anyway so why the dribbling?

No trades, no one wants to play for us because of the type of BB were playing.

Nothing makes sense anymore. I wouldnt be surprised if Old Knick was Jim Dolan.

@Knicks_Fanatic No they knew exactly how to beat their def every time down court and get any shot they wanted

@KnickelusKnickleby Spre wasn`t corporate enough for Dolan, that is why he got rid of him

LIN was and is BETTER than Felton.

@pdxknicks True.  Walsh/Dolan and Grunwald boxed the team into this mess.  Gotta wait it out and re-tool this summer.

@MOSTHATED1 

Either the coach or a (smart) PG needs to take control in the 4th quarter ... Woody's laissez-faire attitude towards the closing minutes is not the way to go for THIS group of players...

@xmenreturn Once in 1/2 court use dribble for 3 things, attack the rim, get out of trouble, set up better passing angle, rule max is 3 dribbles

No chance of it. Old Knick made a Cactus Album reference the other day. No way Jim Dolan is that hip-hop astute

@rgm891 Wow, why would you insult Old Knick that way. I know you're just kidding.
