Hey! The Knicks have a game tonight. It's on national TV, and it's against the Cavaliers, one of the few teams scientifically and inarguably proven to be worse than they are. Derek Fisher's trotting out another new starting lineup for this one:

Amar'e at center! Samuel Dalembert off the bench! Even a dozen permutations into his rotation, Fisher keeps finding brand new looks. We'll see how that front line holds up against the rebounding, floor-stretching, and finishing power of Kevin Love and Anderson Varejao.
Meanwhile, J.R. Smith is back from his not-mumps:

If the Knicks find a way to beat the Cavs *again*, that would just be the best. I'm rooting for it.
Tip-off tonight is at 8. This is your game thread. This is Fear the Sword. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. New thread after the game, recap from Jonathan later on. Go the Knicks! SWEEP THE CAVS.
