Good evening! The Knicks are playing basketball tonight against the Celtics. First, some surprising news:
Knicks say Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) is available. J.R. Smith (sore left heel) is out tonight vs. Celtics— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) December 12, 2014
Fisher will start Melo and indicates keep him in for shorter stretches.— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) December 12, 2014
That smells so much to me like Melo playing on a sore knee because his name got kicked around in the Post today, but I dunno. Please don't hurt yourself for real, sir.
In the meantime, let's try to enjoy ourselves, eh? The Knicks will probably lose, because that's what they do, but...I dunno, maybe they won't. The Celtics with their feisty, defensive (and Rondoful, unless he's hurt and I'm missing something) backcourt and their floor-stretching frontcourt seem like a pretty killer opponent, but it's okay. We still have DraftExpress, and we still have each other, and we still have...look who it is! It's Bunsy the Triangle Mink! Everybody pet Bunsy! Good Bunsy!
