Knicks, Nuggets, NFL Playoffs and the New York Rangers

Knicks, Nuggets, NFL Playoffs and the New York Rangers…

Tonight was the first time both the Knicks and Nuggets have met since the big trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks, the Knicks came in to the game on a 5 game losing streak, now it is a 6 game losing and the clock is ticking on Dantoni’s coaching career in New York. The Nuggets beat the Knicks in double overtime 119-114 with the players the Knicks traded to get Carmelo. Tim Mosgov and Danilo Galinari combined for 53 points. As much as I like the move to get Tyson Chandler it is obvious they miss Chancey Billups at the point. They figure this out quickly this is a 66 game season not 82 games and this slow start can make the difference between not making the playoffs and maybe squeezing into as the 8th seed.

The NFL playoffs resumes on Sunday and this is not for the weak hearted. The Giants play the San Francisco 49ers and the Patriots play the Baltimore Ravens.

I will admit I didn’t give the Giants much of a chance to get through the season never mind the playoffs, but they are here and it looks like 2007 all over again. But the 49er defense believes in putting running backs in body bags… so …I am going jump on the Giant bandwagon. And I like the Ravens over the Patriots in a nail biter.

Congratulations to the New York Rangers in beating the Boston Bruins in overtime 3-2. The win gives the Rangers a 3 point advantage over the Bruins for top seed in the NHL Eastern Conference.
