WAIT NO WAIT WAIT I'M SCARED CAN WE GO BACK TO PRESEASON PLEASE. PLEASE. Please. Okay. Ugh. Okay. It counts now. The Knicks are gonna play the Bulls tonight and it counts toward their 2014-2015 season record. So do all the games after this. Your Knicks starting lineup:
So, Amar'e instead of Jason Smith, who seemed like he'd be the starting four last week. That could change as soon as tomorrow night. We'll see. I think that's a sensible unit. I think there are other sensible units, too.
Some Bulls news: Jimmy Butler will not play. Derrick Rose is on them. I think Iman Shumpert should (and will) guard him because he's done a decent job of it before and Jose Calderon wouldn't be able to do that competently even if fully healthy.
The game tips off at 8 PM on MSG and ESPN. Blog A Bull is a great Bulls blog you could look at. This is a game thread. Please do not post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the game thread. Go the Knicks!
Update: Calderon is a late scratch. Shane Larkin will start.
Calderon will not dress (strained right calf). Shane Larkin will start.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) October 29, 2014
