Knickerblogger

PREVIOUSLY, THE NEW YORK KNICKS...lost their third straight game Saturday night in Miami, 120-115. During their three days off, they signed Cheikh Samb to a 10-day contract.

The teams split their first two meetings with the home team winning both times: 98-95 in Atlanta on December 5th and 112-104 in New York on January 28th.

MORE LINKS: Anytime I do a morning links post, I invariably end up coming across more (in the quantitative rather than qualitative sense) worthy links later that same day. Lesson learned: I don't learn my lesson.
Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

They just posted the upcoming tv schedule, and said that some games were going to be on Sportsouth HD. I have Comcast and didn't know such a channel existed. Can anyone suggest what Atlanta area provider they have it with?

Comcast channel 848, same as Fox Sports HD. Occasionally they interrupt the color bars to show sports.
