The Knicks host the Sacramento Kings tonight at 7:30pm @ MSG.
The Knicks are coming off a shellacking courtesy of Kevin Durant last Sunday, and hope to rebound against a very beatable Kings team.
JR will be doing his best MF Doom impression tonight and we will see how his mask hurts him, if at all. Melo needs to use tonight to get back on track as he disappeared in the second half of the team’s loss in OKC.
The Kings have a pretty solid two-headed monster in Isiah Thomas (boooo) and Demarcus Cousins, but the Knicks always do well stopping fast point guards and opposing big men, so they should be fine…
This is the team’s final game before the All Star break, so a victory over a 17-win Kings team is somewhat of a must.
The Knicks projected lineup: Shumpert, Carmelo, Tyson Chandler, Prigioni, Felton.
The Kings projected lineup: Rudy Gay, Jason Thompson, Boogie Cousins, Marcus Thornton, Isiah Thomas (boooo).
UPDATE: No JR tonight…said his mask needed refitting and so he will sit tonight.
