It’s do or die for Knicks

Mba­bane Jazz vs Mba­bane Knicks To­day at Mavuso Sports Em­po­rium; 5pm

– KNICKS are a bas­ket­ball side with sea­soned play­ers in the sport. The team even has names that can be undis­put­edly put in as some of the great­est to have ever played on our na­tion’s courts.

But even with such rich his­tory, the team finds it­self once again in a sit­u­a­tion where they face the chop.

In pre­vi­ous sea­sons, Knicks did enough to get them­selves out of


this sit­u­a­tion, but this time around, they don’t have it easy at all.

It is even out of their hands to be frank. The or­ange and black ensem­ble is se­cond from base­ment with 16 points out of a pos­si­ble 26 points. Their sur­vival de­pends on whether Manzini Ti­tans wins or loses against Su­per­stars and they will have to win their match against Jazz at all cost.

This will def­i­nitely be a cracker be­cause Jazz can­not af­ford to put their foot off the pedal just a fort­night away from the play-offs be­cause the Si­fiso Sibandze led­charges are clear with the fact that they have to build mo­men­tum. Tip-off is 5pm.
