Showdown in NOLA! On the heels of securing the Eastern Conference’s fifth seed, tonight the New York Knicks (47-33) are in New Orleans to ruffle some Pelican (41-39) feathers. The Pels and the Lakers are tangled for seventh place in the West, and they sit one game back from the Clippers/Warriors tie for fifth/sixth.
For one team, tonight’s matchup has some stakes; for the other, it’s an opportunity to let Trevor Keels stretch his legs on the hardwood.
Fournier for forty! Tip-off’s at 8:00 p.m. EST. This is your game thread. This is The Bird Writes. Please don’t post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Be kind to one another. Enjoy your sport, Knickerbockers!
