The short-handed Knicks face the Clippers in L.A.
Good afternoon! Y'all ready for another episode of The Gravely Shorthanded Knicks Do America? Today, the Knicks are in Los Angeles to face the Clippers without Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, and Tyson Chandler. Regarding Chandler, there's actually some kinda good news:
Tyson Chandler is not playing today because of a stiff neck. Team says his knee is fine.— Nate Taylor (@ByNateTaylor) March 17, 2013
The neck thing has bothered Chandler all year, so that makes sense. Ya know, assuming it's accurate. Either way, Mike Woodson will start the same moth-eaten five he sent out in Portland: Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, Chris Copeland (birthday boy!), Kenyon Martin, and Kurt Thomas. I'm not counting on that group plus the usual bench bros to give the Clippers much trouble at noon local time the day after a night off in Los Angeles, but hey, you never know.
Once again, the Knicks' traveling infirmary will be on national television, so tune into ABC, not MSG, at 3:30. You can comment here and check out Clips Nation for Clipper things. Please don't post large photos, .gifs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Go the Knicks!
