Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pacers- 1/2/09

00000000433_medium

Welcome to Knicks basketball in 2009, my friends. Your Knicks kick off the New Year at MSG (the same place I was when the ball dropped) against the struggling Indiana Pacers. Alongside the lethal Danny Granger, Indy's got size, including Roy Hibbert and Jeff Foster (a member of the same species as David Lee: Rebounder caucasius). They've also got T.J. Ford, the maddening little rodent that always gives the Knicks problems. With fans and media ready to write them off and a tough slate of games ahead (home against Boston followed by an extended Western road trip), it's in New York's best interest to manufacture a win this evening. This here's your spot for comments throughout the game. I'll be around. Go Knicks.

Check out the excellent Indy Cornrows for all things Pacerific. (Side note: A glance back reminds me how absolutely stacked this team was back in the day. Oh, how I hated them.)
