Good evening! It's nearly time for the undefeated Knicks to face their biggest obstacle yet. Tonight begins an away back-to-back against the Spurs and Grizzlies, two mighty foes. Mike Woodson has pledged to keep his relatively undersized starting lineup intact against two bigger frontcourts. Tonight, Ronnie Brewer, Carmelo Anthony, and Tyson Chandler will be matched up one way or another with Kawhi Leonard, Tim Duncan, and Boris Diaw. Should be interesting.
I don't know what to expect out of this. Not at all. The Knicks had been so utterly dominant until they slipped momentarily in Orlando, and the Spurs are similarly dominant, but they've got a longer track record with said dominance, but also we've seen what can happen whey they kinda just take a game off. I'm certainly not expecting a win tonight, but it's hard to know what to expect from these brand new, weirdly impressive Knicks.

Tip-off's at 8:30! Ahhh!
Update: Two storylines I forgot: 1. Pablo vs. Manu! 2. The Knicks haven't won in San Antonio since 2003, which is before I was born!
