We've reached a checkpoint. The Knicks play the Kings tonight, then they get a week off for the All-Star break, then they play their last stretch of the season. End with a win, eh Knicks? The Kings aren't very good, but they do have some shifty guards and a big ol' DeMarcus Cousins, but...they're really not very good. A win would be nice. I don't know what to expect.
J.R. Smith was expected to play in a mask after fracturing his cheekbone, but he will not:

He's not comfortable with the mask on. Fine. Seems like that could have been figured out sooner, but whatever. It sounds dangerous to play with no mask.
Other than that, all is as it usually is. The starting lineup is the same, the rotation should be the same, and Mike Woodson said the same dumb shit pre-game. This is your game thread.
