Video Game Preview: Knicks vs Pelicans, 3/27/2020

A, B, C, A, B, B, A, C, A. A, C, A, B.

Do I smell a Julius Randle revenge game? I’m not quite certain. The fact that I can smell is a good sign though. If you need more good signs, take a look at Steph Curry using his reach to get one of the most important people in the country to meet him and answer questions live on instagram.

Apparently Dr. Fauci used to hoop. I like this smart little dude. I hope you’re staying home and helping flatten this steep curve. All my thoughts are with the health care professionals who are basically in a war zone right now. At the time of this writing there have been over 23,000 diagnosed cases and 365 deaths in NYC. Now word has come of a 17-year old kid in Los Angeles being sentenced to death because he didn’t have heath insurance.

We’ll try to keep it light in the stream tonight, I promise. Hopefully a couple jokes at my expense will help us through.

Projected Starters

No Rock-Paper-Scissor today as Alex graciously took the hit of being the Knicks on the last broadcast. I suppose he’s sick of just eviscerating me and wants a challenge. I guess I’ll catch all the hell now for being the competent team. Bring it! My skin is thick, my skull is too.

Keys & Predictions

Even though I get to be the Pelicans today, something tells me Alex is gathering too much power. Yes the Raptors were just a horrendous matchup for the Knicks. They can play fast or slow. They switch on defense seamlessly. I was getting burnt by Matt Thomas. Nothing I did worked and as much as I want to blame the dumb Knicks, there’s a part of me that worries, Alex is just that much better. Today will be a major test.

Knicks by -4.

Warm Up Music

It’s hard to smile through all that’s goin’ down in the world today. Now it’s here, officially on my block and your concrete couch. If you believe in the fuck faces down in the Capitol your ass got took.

I was saddened to hear that Scarface recently tested positive for COVID-19. Thankfully he is feeling better and self-quarantining at home in a four cornered room staring at candles.
