Knicks @ Magic (Game 33): Jan. 5th, 7:00 PM EST
New York Knicks: 22-10 (9-7 on road)
Orlando Magic: 12-20 (7-11 at home)
Head-to-Head: Knicks Lead 1-0
My big question for tonight… will the Knicks build off of what they did defensively against the Spurs or will they regress?
Camby is getting the start again tonight.
The Magic have lost seven games in a row. This should be an easy win for the Knicks. What concerns me just a little is that five of those seven losses are by less than four points. They are playing well, just haven’t figured out how to close out games. Let’s hope they don’t figure that out tonight.
Also, this is Stoudemire’s first game on the road, so will be interesting to see how his body responds to the travel.
Key Matchup: Jameer Nelson vs. Jason Kidd/Prigioni - Chandler will have his hands full keeping Vucevic off the boards, but the key to beating the Magic will be slowing down Nelson.
- Vucevic Rebounds: 10
- JR Smith Points: 20
- Melo Shot Attempts: 20
- Prigioni Assists: 5
- Novak 3’s Made: 2
Betting Line: Knicks by 6.5 (O/U 194.0)
Prediction: Knicks 99, Magic 87
Prediction Record: 21-11
