Good afternoon, friends! It is time. How's everybody feeling? I'm nervous, sure, but I'm strangely at peace. I've convinced myself that the Knicks-- on the road, short-handed, and playing a heavily favored opponent-- have nothing to lose today. We've heard absolutely every reason why the Heat are going to beat New York, so...we'll see.
Still gametime decision on Tyson - Woodson said hoping he'll play, otherwise Amare to center and Landry starts
Jeffries minutes still limited for Knicks.
Again, we'll see. I hope so very badly that Tyson Chandler can at least give it a shot. If he determines after a little bit that he's too flu-ridden to play his usual game (and it does sound like he's still looking pretty feeble in shoot-around), then I won't begrudge him the decision to sit back down, especially if he's willing to commit a few licking fouls first.
This is your Game One thread. This is Peninsula Is Mightier. As always-- and especially today, since it'll probably be a crowded thread-- please refrain from posting photos, .gifs, illegal streams, and homemade documentaries about wheat in the thread.
Tip-off is at 3:30 and/or whenever the Sixers/Bulls game ends. BEAT THE HEAT!
