Yeah, the game thread for the most important tank game of the season. Sadly I just don't see us lose it, because it is at home and Chicago already took the "our guys are injured" card. So my wish is first of all a loss, but if not, please another blowout so we can have at least some fun.

The good thing - as I wrote in the tank thread - even if we win, our schedule is a little harder than the Bulls one, so maybe they could still catch us (with a little luck).

In advance I ask you guys not to be mad if we win and let Trey Burke get the message across:

“It bothers me, but I understand from a fans’ standpoint,’’ Trey Burke said. “But from a players’ standpoint … they have to understand as well. That’s all I ask for them. Do you all want us to go out there and look bad and look like bums? They might say we already look like bums. It’s not in my DNA to go out and lose. I don’t know how to do that.’’

Mudiay is comically bad. I don’t want to hear shit about his upside anymore. It doesn’t exist.

Doesn't look like we can lose this one. We are shooting 4-18 from three and around 37% overall, but are up by 10 at the half. Out-tanked (as expected) so far.

I'm up for it. As I said: if we can't lose, let's at least have fun while winning! So let's blow this open in the third!

On another note: can the Nets please beat the Grizzlies? If you have no reason to lose, you should at least be able to beat the Grizz. (Nets are up by 2 at the half.)

We have. We might only win one more game (most likeliest against the Magic) the rest of the way, while the Bulls and Nets play each other twice and have more easy opponents left on the schedule. We just have the Bobcats and Pistons other than the Magic among lottery teams.

We have the same record over the last 10 (2-8) and are way worse when you look beyond that. Nothing to be scared of, because they still play most of the lottery teams. Both have some of the easiest remaining schedules. But anyway: getting separation from then and basically securing the 9th best odds is fine (anything better is icing on the cake, because it was clear that we would win some games - at least for realists).

Where were all the Bull starters? Were they actually hurt or was it a scam for tanking? If so, isn't Silver supposed to be cracking down on this?

Adam Silver already issued a written warning for the Bulls for "allegedly" resting healthy Bulls players, but their best players in Kris Dunn, Zach Lavine, and that "poor man's KP" clone of Markkanen do have legit foot, knee and back injuries respectively.

Without those 3 guys, the Bulls leftovers look worse than our leftovers. Knicks would've accomplished another tank job loss if either Dunn, Lavine or Markkanen were playing in this game.

Straight up tank job. Lavine Markannen and Dunn didnt even travel with the team. "Minor injuries" is the excuse. Dunn is resting a "Toe Sprain" and they supposedly gave him a walking boot for it. That makes sense :drunk: :warp:

They even talked about it during the game showing Robin Lopez' minutes per game before the all star break then showing 7 DNPs post all star game and heavily reduced minutes after.

The NBA really needs to reevaluate the lottery. I thought the Mavs game was the worst game I ever seen til I watched tonights game. Its silly that we as fans have to root for these guys to play terribly or not show up to counter the other team literally not showing up. This race to the bottom is disgusting.
