Knicks, Nets, and the Battle for New York: A Series of Haikus

Battle for New York

Round three of four this season

For Knicks, a must win


On E-S-P-N

In Madison Square Garden

For Knicks, a must win


Melo, J.R. Smith

Twenty-three and twenty-four

Points, respectively


Up nine after one

And twenty-five at the half

It was over quick


Knicks got that must win

Three in a row now, in fact

Eighth seed, finally
