Game 22: Magic @ Knicks 102-107
The Knicks travel down to florida to take on the Magic in their first game of December. A type of game that’s a must win for the Knicks if they hope to have a chance at making the playoffs. I still expect the game to be a pretty close one.
Knicks 9-13

Game 23: Knicks @ Pacers 99-108
As i’ve said before the Pacers have a very interesting team lead by Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner. They are probably a better team than the Knicks which is why i tip them to win both of the first two games.
Knicks 9-14

Game 24: Grizzlies @ Knicks 97-86
The Grizzlies lost Carter and Randolph while acquiring some peripheral pieces with the likes of Ben Maclemore and Tyreke Evans. They remained close to the same amount of talent, which is still better than the Knicks.
Knicks 9-15

Game 25: Knicks @ Bulls 108-89
The Bulls will be absolutely horrible this season and the knicks just need to exploit that. With the Lavine injury the Bulls while continue struggle to put up points, and a horrible point guard rotation makes this team horrible. If I had to guess I would take the Bulls to be the worst team in the NBA.
Knicks 10-15

Game 26: Hawks @ Knicks 87-99
I was wondering which team would be the worst the Hawks or the Bulls. I picked the Bulls to be worse but the Hawks lost 2 starters while have no means of scoring or defending. The Hawks are betting on being bad this season.
Knicks 11-15

Game 27: Lakers @ Knicks 102-109
Ah, the Lonzo Ball hype train how many people have jumped on it? I’m sorry Lakers fans but i believe at this point in the season Lonzo will be figured out completely and Frank will shut him down.
Knicks 12-15

Game 28: Nets @ Knicks 111-117
I’m not sure how the nets health will be at this point. If everyone stays healthy the Nets are a comparable team to the Knicks in terms of roster talent. The Nets just have a health problem in probably their best player Jeremy Lin (No not D’angelo Russell).
Knicks 13-15 4 Straight Wins baby!

Game 29: Thunder @ Knicks 102-83
At this point the Thunder should have their chemistry set up and firing on all cylinders, especially defensively. This could be one of the games where the Thunder look a lot better than they are; maybe a game where Adams dominates Willy.
Knicks 13-16

Game 30: Knicks @ Hornets 100-117
This could be a random game in December that the Knicks surprise the Hornets and win but I wouldn’t bet on it. With Marvin being a decent defender it would be interesting to see how KP matches up against him on both ends of the floor.
Knicks 13-17

Game 31: Celtics @ Knicks 106-124
Kyrie vs Frank, could Frank hang with Kyrie? Probably not, will it be fun to see him try? Yes, should we expect the Knicks to give Boston a game away from home? Nope but it will be fun to see them go up against each other in a historic rivalry.
Knicks 13-18

Game 32: Knicks @ Pistons 104-110
The Knicks travel to the Great Lake State to take on the Pistons in the last game before Christmas. This game should be close and have a great festive feel. The Pistons have a lot of flaws but so do the Knicks.
Knicks 13-19

Game 33: Sixers @ Knicks 104-107
Christmas a time for family and basketball, The Knicks continue to get Christmas games due to their location. This should be one of the most exciting games of the year as the Knicks take on the young and up and coming Sixers. Frank takes on first overall pick Markelle Fultz in a battle of two top ten picks.
Knicks 14-19

Game 34: Knicks @ Bulls 110-96
As i’ve mentioned before this bulls team is absolutely horrible the east being so bad is the only reason I could see the Knicks competing for a playoff. This game will be played December 27, I’m going to assume Zach Lavine is still out.
Knicks 15-19

Game 35: Knicks @ Spurs 109-82
The Spurs are one of if not the best run organizations out there. They’re continuously at the top of the league defensively. Kawhi Leanord is a top 5 player in the league and can carry an offense and a defense.
Knicks 15-20

Game 36: Knicks @ Pelicans 107-119
The Knicks travel down to New Orleans with the two superstar big man in Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins, The Pelicans simply have no wing depth the Knicks need Melo to take over. They also have an extremely undersized two guard in Rondo. However Willy can’t defend anyone and will most likely get dominated.
Knicks 15-21

Game 37: Spurs @ Knicks 89-111
The Spurs should have another easy win and dominate the Knicks again. The Knick kick off 2018 with a tough game again the San Antonio Spurs
Knicks 15-22

Game 38: Knicks @ Wizards 105-121
The Knicks start a 3 game road trip starting in America’s capital Washington D.C. The Wizards were one of the most unchanged teams this offseason after being linked to Paul George they resigned Otto Porter Jr, one of the least deserving players to get one this free agency. Granted he is only 24 but he only averaged 13.4 ppg and only 1.5 apg. This is a great example of the John Wall effect.
Knicks 15-23

Game 39: Knicks @ Miami 104-113
The Knicks travel down south to Miami to take on the Heat. As i’ve said before the Heat made win now moves this offseason to surround defensive anchor Hassan Whiteside including adding a backup Center in Kelly Ollynk.
Knicks 15-24

Game 40: Knicks @ Mavericks 105-104
The two teams that never tank the Mavericks and The Knicks take each other on in a battle of the 8th and 9th pick. Many Knicks fans watched Dennis Smith Jr’s phenomenal summer league in tears. Personally i believe the Knicks made the right choice, defense win’s championships.
Knicks 16-24
