Good day! The Knicks are in Chicago today to play their third games in four nights, and the first of a back-to-back to close a FOGAFINI. The Bulls play in Chicago, and the Bulls play very hard and defend the Knicks very well, so that should be fun. They also just signed Jimmer Fredette weeks after he torched the Knicks for his career-high, so that has the potential to generate some excitement as well. Yuck. A couple pre-game updates:
Iman Shumpert's back:
.@I_Am_Iman will return today & Woodson will place him back in the staring lineup. #Knicks— Jonah Ballow (@jonahballow) March 2, 2014
And since we haven't been told otherwise, I assume Amar'e Stoudemire is back after a one-game absence to rest his legs. Carmelo Anthony will play despite some sort of strain in his right hand that didn't undergo any testing even though it is sore and hit only seven of 26 shots the other night. Aaaaaand...the Knicks will play in these:
