Warriors at Knicks: a Friday happy hour sort of game

Two teams headed in separate directions; both with their eyes on each other

Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors
these guys are pretty, prettyyyyyy good

Coney Island of the Mind, Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s iconic collection of poetry served as the inspiration for the name of our blog. Steph Curry scored his career high 54 points at Madison Square Gardens. The Knicks (and pretty much all of New York media) are waiting with baited breath for Kevin Durant to say something - anything - that could potentially signal a tie between him and their franchise.

The point is that there are a lot of connections here that have little to no direct bearing on the specific matchup today.

It’s an early one, tipping off at 4:30 on a Friday for those of us watching from the West Coast - so belly up to wherever you are watching from, grab your beverage of choice, and kick back with us to watch yet another installment of this season’s version of everyone’s favorite show “Will Steph Curry Go Nuts?”

Will Curry rip the sky open again?

Stephen Curry’s nickname in China is both well-suited for his game, and extremely inappropriate for a family blog like ours. So let’s just say that Curry seems to once again be redefining his ceiling; and doing so explosively.

The Knicks are young, but without Kristaps Porzingis (knee), Kevin Knox (ankle), and Emanuel Mudiay (ankle), this isn’t an especially threatening team right now. More than any other game this season, if the Warriors lose this one, it’ll be because they beat themselves.
