Knicks @ Magic (Game 5): Nov. 13th 7:00 PM EST
New York Knicks: 4-0 (1-0 on the road)
Orlando Magic: 2-4 (2-1 at home)
Head-to-Head: First Meeting
It seems like FOREVERRRRR between Knick games.
I would be completely shocked if we lost to Orlando tonight. This is the same Orlando team that just got beat (pretty badly) by the Nets two nights in a row.
The Magic have been terrible (TERRIBLE) at offense of late. In their last four game, they have only managed 77.5 points per game.
The Knicks need this W because at the end of the week, San Antonio and Memphis are waiting.
What I’ll be Watching:
- Defense - as with the last few games, just going to be watching to see if we keep up the effort. Since Orlando pretty much sucks at putting the ball in the basket, I’m a little wary the Knicks might take them seriously.
- Melo - Can the league’s leading scorer keep it going?
- Rebounding - with Dwight Howard no longer in the paint, grabbing rebounds become a lot easier against this team. Humphries piled up 21. Interested to see what Chandler and Melo do.
5-0 would sound pretty nice.
Betting Line: Knicks by 7.5 (O/U 189.0)
My Prediction: Knicks 105, Magic 87
Prediction Record: 3-1
