So, You're Saying There's A Chance!

Knicks Have 13.9% Chance to Reach Playoffs

According to the published calculations of ESPN's resident hoops number cruncher, John Hollinger, the Knicks still have a decent-ish shot of reaching the postseason as the No. 8 seed in the East. New York enters tonight's action 1.5 games back of Milwaukee and Chicago for the final opening in the (L)Eastern.

The Knicks still have to leap over Charlotte (who they play once more) and hold off the Nets (who they play tomorrow and to end the season). It's not going to be easy. But it's aparently not impossible. There's a chance.

In today's Daily Dime over at the Wordlwide Leader, mediocre NBAer-turned-overly-self-assured analyst Tim Legler tips the Nets for the eighth spot. He gives the "edge to the Nets based on the presence of a big-time point guard in Devin Harris." Um. You'd think that Legs would have noticed that Harris left Sunday's loss to the Clipppers with a shoulder injury that looked serious to quite serious. He's likely out against the Knicks tomorrow night at the Garden.
