So it looks like we will likely need about two wins to secure a playoff birth and tonight is as good a night as any to get one of those wins.
We are playing against the wizards who are on a 2 game winning streak after having lost 5 straight. The Wiz are a dangerous team mostly because of their style of play (perimeter shooting) and because they have nothing to lose.
We are 8...
The Knicks are three-and-a-half games behind the Celtics for the fourth seed.
Nothing quite like starting out your Sunday like watching the Miami Heat squaring off against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Gardens. Carmelo Anthony has been stunting all game and especially on this play against Shane Battier. Shane Battier was emasculated. H/T @Jose3030
Shane Battier’s ego was shattered when Carmelo Anthony served him a bit of something. Carmelo Anthony led all scorer’s in the first quarter by 14 points; Dwyane Wade led all Heatles by 12 points.
