Good evening! The Knicks are back to basketball-playing tonight. It's the Jazz paying them a visit -- the same Jazz who absolutely crushed New York a month ago. Utah's been pretty wild and unpredictable since, not unlike New York, so who knows what'll happen tonight. This has been a very analytical preview.
Health stuff! Kristaps Porzingis is playing despite missing a bunch of the last game after banging his foot. Here's what they say about him:
Fisher said KP6 still sore but is able to play through it. Says its "that time of the year."— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) January 20, 2016
Lance Thomas, meanwhile is out with a sore knee. Here's his deal:
Lance doesn't think his knee is anything serious. Day to day, he said— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) January 20, 2016
Fisher on Lance's knee: "He'll be seen by doctors tonight and go from there to see if MRI is needed or necessary.''— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) January 20, 2016
Well uhhhh, I'll just choose to not worry about any of the above and we'll go from there. Kevin Seraphin is also available, by the way, though he's dealing with a bruised rib. For the Jazz:
No Derrick Favors again.— Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) January 20, 2016
Yeah. We're at the point in the season where everyone's hurt. Hopefully not too badly.
Tip-off tonight is at 7:30. This is your game thread. This is SLC Dunk. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in this thread. Please be kind and respectful to all. Go the Knicks!
