The NBA regular season appears set to start on Christmas Day, but in the meantime, we’ll continue to simulate the Knicks season (based on the original 2011–12 schedule) on PlayStation 3, and post the results here as if they were actual games. So! Carmelo Anthony continues to be injured — he’s due back this weekend — and the Knicks continue to stink in his absence. They lost twice this weekend: Friday night at home against Milwaukee and then again last night at Toronto. When you lose at Toronto, matters are not well. The Knicks are now 7-10, and Mike D’Antoni’s job is in serious jeopardy. Get back soon, Carmelo! Next game: Wednesday night, at home against San Antonio.
As always, here’s a short video from each game, shot off our television, using our iPhone. Make sure to check out that thrilling box score from the Toronto loss.
