Good morning! The Knicks play the Pelicans today at noon. I pray the Knicks can prey on New Orleans -- 1-8, injured, and still coalescing under Alvin Gentry -- but you never know. They've got guards who can hurt New York in Jrue Holiday and Eric Gordon (and Ish Smith, who kinda scares me the most), and they've got Anthony Davis ready to go after he was doubtful in shootaround. I'm also always fearful of these noon home tips, in which the Knicks tend to look a little sleepy after a Saturday night off. Like, they nearly took a spill against the Lakers in one of these games. Be awake, Knicks.
Tip-off today is at 12 PM on MSG. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, Vines, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Check out The Bird Writes to see what's up with the Pelicans. Please be kind to one another, and generally keep our game thread a peaceful, comfortable place. Go the Knicks!
