Game Thread: Knicks vs. Suns- 1/17/11

Good morning, cheeses. Your Knicks play host to the Phoenix Suns today in the annual MLK Day matinee at Madison Square Garden (my attempts to deem this the "Matinee Luther King" have gone unacknowledged. I remain steadfast). The Suns aren't very good, but have won two straight and would very much like to avenge the 25-point throttling the Knicks issued them earlier this month. Danilo Gallinari will return to the starting lineup while Ronny Turiaf is questionable with an injured right hip (injuries are 100% terrible and never convenient, but Turiaf's does it make it awfully easy for D'Antoni to revert to his small lineup without controversy.)

Tipoff's at 1. Those of you with the day off (and those of you neglecting your work) are welcome to join me in the thread and comment through the afternoon. Check out Bright Side of the Sun as well.

Happy birthday to the late, great Martin Luther King, Jr. (two days ago). I think I say this every year, but you ought to read Stride Toward Freedom if you haven't already.

Update: Turiaf won't play.
