If you watched this game from beginning to end, you deserve a medal and one of those participation certificates.
I’m not going to waste your time or mine anymore than I have to going over this game.
So instead, its time for another edition of Knicks Blowout Theatre.
This time I have decided that, to help you forget about the three hours or so you wasted on this Wednesday, I’m going to present to you highlights of Walt “Clyde” Frazier’s performance in Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals.
Coming up next the Knicks will head north of the border for the first time this season as they will take on Rudy Gay, Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors. The game will start at 7:00 pm Friday and will be shown on MSG
