Game One Thread: Knicks at Heat- 4/28/12

Good afternoon, friends! It is time. How's everybody feeling? I'm nervous, sure, but I'm strangely at peace. I've convinced myself that the Knicks-- on the road, short-handed, and playing a heavily favored opponent-- have nothing to lose today. We've heard absolutely every reason why the Heat are going to beat New York, so...we'll see.

Meanwhile, here's the word on the injuries and the illnesses. Steve Popper:

Still gametime decision on Tyson - Woodson said hoping he'll play, otherwise Amare to center and Landry starts

Jeffries minutes still limited for Knicks.

Again, we'll see. I hope so very badly that Tyson Chandler can at least give it a shot. If he determines after a little bit that he's too flu-ridden to play his usual game (and it does sound like he's still looking pretty feeble in shoot-around), then I won't begrudge him the decision to sit back down, especially if he's willing to commit a few licking fouls first.

This is your Game One thread. This is Peninsula Is Mightier. As always-- and especially today, since it'll probably be a crowded thread-- please refrain from posting photos, .gifs, illegal streams, and homemade documentaries about wheat in the thread.

Tip-off is at 3:30 and/or whenever the Sixers/Bulls game ends. BEAT THE HEAT!
