The Knicks are the worst team in the NBA. They were the worst team in the league when Carmelo Anthony, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith were all playing, record-wise. All of those guys are either gone or on the bench. They have been replaced by my Grandma Mildred and her bridge group (or the basketball equivalent thereof).
If the Rockets don't win this game, all is lost. Pack it up, go home forever.
The game is on TNT, because they're the Knicks and the NBA is sometimes the worst.
