Game Thread: Knicks at Magic- 4/5/12

Evening, snackrabbits. We've got a weird one coming up tonight. The Knicks are as they have been-- hampered by injuries and hanging by a thread onto the Eastern Conference's eighth seed. The Magic are something else entirely. Not only are they also stricken with injuries-- Ryan Anderson won't play and Jameer Nelson might not either-- but Stan Van Gundy and Dwight Howard and management and the whole locker room are at odds. Things are pretty uncomfortable over there.

So, uh, I have no idea what to expect. We got a look at the sleepy, hungover Magic team a few weeks ago, and they could barely keep up with the Knicks. Now, we'll get a look at the Magic at the lowest point to date of their locker room drama. Who knows how they'll look now?

Whatever the case, the Knicks will try to find some production out of the point guard spot (remember that Baron Davis is even more hurt than before) and Carmelo Anthony will probably have to score a lot again (and possibly defend Glen Davis).

Should be strange. Comment here if you're watching, check out Orlando Pinstriped Post for Magic stuff, and please don't post photos, .gifs, illegal streams, or essays about yacht decals in the comments. Tip-off's at 7.
