Knocking on wood

While I'm writing posts in advance of the events they discuss, I'll go out on a very thin and shaky limb and congratulate the Knicks on a five game winning streak, their longest since the 2003-04 season, when they also had a five game streak. Congratulations not valid if the Knicks lost to any of the Wizards on Friday, the 76ers on Saturday (which they probably did, though they've been pretty solid in back-to-back games), or the Bulls just now.
