It may be the cold medicine talking but I'm genuinely excited about tonight's tilt between the New York Knicks (18-39) and the Atlanta Hawks (23-32). I'm not expecting good basketball. (Thus diminishing the possibility that this is the cold medicine talking.) I'm expecting between 6 and 12 minutes, most of them likely to occur consecutively at the beginning of the game where Josh Smith and Al Horford will be guarded by Zach Randolph and Eddy Curry which should provide the Hawks with the opportunity (again) to build a lead too big to squander completely.
Such is The Drive for 35.
UPDATE: Hawks.com gets answers to its questions about the Knicks from the man who knows them best. The Knickerblogger game thread for tonight is here.
