[Thanks to reader chgobr for tonight's game preview. -Matt]
My disdain towards this team is well documented. It would be my pleasure to help push the Knicks toward the brink of elimination. Assuming the Bulls win, NJ has the tie-breaker verses the Knicks even if NJ loses all 5 games left and the Knicks win the remaining 4. Assuming the Bulls win, one more Orlando win or Knick loss and New York will be eliminated.
But more important is our opportunity for the 7-11 pick pending these last few games. I know others may not agree, but for me this is one of the most important games of the year. I want to bury the Knicks tonight, but will take a win any way we can get it. I want to be smiling 10 PM tonight.
