Knicks vs. Spurs (Game 32): Jan 3rd, 7:30 PM EST
New York Knicks: 21-10 (12-3 at home)
San Antonio Spurs: 26-8 (13-6 on the road)
Head-to-Head: Knicks Lead 1-0
It’s going to be pretty simple for the Knicks going forward.
If they want to win, it needs to be done on the defensive side of the ball.
Nothing else to it.
Our offense is fine.
The effort needs to be there not just in the fourth quarter. I don’t need crazy stats to tell me we’ve been sucking defensively the first three quarters.
The Knicks are catching a little break tonight as the Spurs are playing their fourth game in five nights.
Will the help? We’ll find out tonight.
Key Matchup: Tim Duncan vs. Tyson Chandler - and I thought Jason Kidd was doing crazy things at his age. Can’t believe Duncan is still putting up all-star type numbers. Tyson, do something about this!
- Amar’e minutes: 15
- Melo Points: 35
- Chandler Blocks: 2
- Tony Parker Assists: 8
- Knicks Turnovers: 10
Looks like Camby is getting the start tonight instead of Thomas.
Betting Line: Knicks by 1.0 (O/U 208.0)
Prediction: This is a tough one, but going Spurs 102, Knicks 92. Can’t feel confident in this team until I see an improvement on D.
Prediction Record: 21-10
