Madison Square Garden
Aside from yours truly, no one wants to go and see the Knicks play the Sixers on a Friday night at the Garden. They have dates with girls. They have to babysit toddlers. They have to go do drugs in the suburbs. They have to make trips to Maryland. They have to study for the bar exam. Not me. I have nothing else to do. So, I'l be there. As alone in New York as Stephon Marbury has been (provided you subbed out anonymity for animosity).
This game is big for the Knicks. A win tonight excuses the excusable loss to the Orlando Magic. It gives the Knicks a chance to pick up a game against the Milwaukee Bucks, who currently sit in the eighth spot in the East (and hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Knicks). The Bucks are playing the Hornets tonight. They should drop that game just like we should have dropped Wednesday's tilt with Orlando.
