James Dolan guarantees Knicks win onstage with band

The New York Knicks were wailing the blues after getting blown out by the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday afternoon, but that didn't stop the team's owner from singing a happy tune later that evening.

James Dolan tried to keep everything about the music on Sunday night as his band JD and the Straight Shot performed inside The Cutting Room, but couldn't help a few comments about his teams inside Madison Square Garden a few blocks away.

"Thanks to the Rangers who brought me a win," Dolan said on the nightclub's stage.

"Unfortunately the basketball (team) couldn't do it today. We're going to win the next game, that's a guarantee."

The frontman for the blues and classic rock band didn't even mention his team by name.

After hearing that The Boss had guaranteed a Knicks’ victory, after he sat through their 31-point blowout loss to the Spurs, Carmelo Anthony knows that the pressure is on.

"I guess we’ve got to win," Anthony said Monday when asked by the N.Y. Daily News about Dolan’s boast. "The owner said it. I guess we got to make it happen. We want to win. If he said it, he’s put the pressure on us to go out there and win the game."

The 2-and-4 Knicks square off against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

Knicks forward Metta World Peace and Rangers GM Glen Sather were among the notables in attendance at the midtown club.

Dolan might end up singing "My Knicks' Defense Is So Cold, It Must Be Next To My Ex's Heart" Wednesday night.
