Game Thread: Knicks vs. Lakers-2/10/12


Good evening, shrimpdads! Tonight promises to be fairly silly. The Knicks, looking for their fourth straight win, will face the Lakers on national television, with a substantial portion of the attention likely being devoted to Jeremy Lin. Lin, making his third start, will go up against the first above-average defense he's faced, as well as the biggest bigs who've ever tried to swat him in the paint. That's what a lot of folks were waiting to see from Lin, so that should be interesting.

But for us, this is just one more opportunity to see if these lovable short-handed Knicks can upset another team. They'll probably need their sharpest three-point shooting, and they'll definitely need some otherworldly interior defense and rebounding (without getting into foul trouble) from Tyson Chandler, Jared Jeffries and whoever else would like to lend a hand against Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. It's a longshot, but at least the Lakers played a close overtime game last night and might be tired or something.

Comment along in this thread if you're watching and check out the terrific Silver Screen and Roll for Lakers coverage. As always, please do not post photos, .gifs, illegal streams, or lunar travel brochures in the thread. Keep it light, keep it civil, and enjoy the game. May the magic continue!

Tip-off's at 8.
