Good evening! The Knicks will look to get back to streakin' again tonight in Cleveland. They'll still be woefully shorthanded up front, with-- WAIT A SECOND:

[bugle sounds] SOLOMON HAS ARRIVED. Jones has yet to officially sign, but if he does and can somehow participate in tonight's game, I bet he starts at center. (Update: Nope. Chris Copeland again. Jones will play, though). Raymond Felton, meanwhile, will start at point guard, despite probably exploding his knee last night and just refusing to acknowledge it.
The Knicks still have something to play for-- Indiana is closing in on the second seed and can strike even closer with a win over the Nets tonight-- but I'm still hoping Mike Woodson values health and rest over a win in Cleveland. I mean, I hope the Knicks win and will probably revert to freaking out if the game is close down the stretch, but...whatever.
On that scoreboard-watching note: Indiana sits two games behind the Knicks, so that could be up to three games or down to just one by the end of the night. The Hawks are in action against the Bucks, and could move into a tie with Chicago in the fifth/sixth seed if they win. I don't know about you, but I'm rooting against the Hawks.
So, this is your thread. This is the wonderful Fear the Sword. Please don't post large photos, .gifs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Don't get hurt, Knicks!
