Guess who’s baaaaaaack….
JR Smith finally returns to the line-up after serving his 5 game suspension for violating the NBA drug policy.
I love JR, but here’s my concern. I really don’t want to see Timmy Jr. minutes get cut to make room for JR.
I want to keep seeing Hardaway develop, kid’s got a nice little future ahead of him and would hate to see it stunted in any way.
Anyway, Spurs are in town. Going to be a tough one. Not really sure how this one is going to go.
Last year, we beat them twice - some reason we had really good success against them… oh wait, I remember - we were freaking LIGHTS out shooting from three.
Honestly, the only thing I want to see is if Bargnani takes a step back or keeps chugging forward after that really nice performance against the Bobcats.
Prediction: Spurs 94, Knicks 90
Prediction Record: 2-3
