Game Thread: Knicks vs. Jazz- 2/6/12

Evening, hotshots! The Jazz are in town tonight to face the Knicks. Said Knicks will be without Amar'e Stoudemire (who is on a leave of absence to mourn the death of his brother, may he rest in peace), and Jared Jeffries will start at power forward in his place. Tonight, of course, also marks the first career start of Jeremy Lin, hero of Saturday's game against the Nets. I'm terribly excited to see how that goes.

The Jazz, meanwhile, are a pretty bad defensive team, but they can score quite a bit, especially inside with one of the roughly nine centers they employ. Jeffries and Tyson Chandler will have their work cut out for them, and it's crucial that Lin and the rest of the Knick guards keep Utah ballhandlers from penetrating so the Knick bigs don't get pulled away from the paint too much.

This is your thread to comment along if you're watching. SLC Dunk is here. Remember not to post photos, .gifs, illegal streams, or scanned maps of Prussia in the thread. Tip-off's at 7:30, which is quite soon.

Go get 'em, Jeremy.
