Prediction

- 96
- 92

As shitty as the Knicks are, they played well against us last season. Key to the game is to be able to shut down their frontcourt of Curry and Z-Bo. If we can do our best at defending our interior and rebounding then we should be fine for a win. If not, we might see an upset on our hands.

Predict and discuss!

well.. they'll be competing with the likes of Eddie Curry, so who knows? We may actually out-rebound the Knicks.

The only thing i see that could be an issue with this game is how our team responds to the MSG crowd. In the past that was a pretty tough building to play in - and it's made games against the knicks more difficult.

Keys to the game for Raps win...

Take Randolph & Curry to McDee's before the game and stuff them real good with some cheap burgers and shakes and then show up for a game and watch them sweat those burgers all night long...

I am sure Knick will jump Raps in the 1st half but I fully expect Raps to separate them self in 3rd and win by 10+

LOL, I dont know Doc, I think when I hear the Knicks I can only think of a disaster, even for the opposing team. Im sure that if both teams losing was an option it would happend.

BTW guys, when you have a chance go check out Jay's preview for tonight's game. Fuckin' hilarious.

Link - http://www.raptorsforum.com/

Jay, from here on out when you have time to do you game previews, I'll add them to the respective game threads. Refreshing, witty and quite frankly alot better than Yahoo's.

Nice write-up Jay - I used to love the Fatt Boys so I agree and I think this game is ours to lose. I've noticed that when NY wins, its always after something negative has been said in the media about Isaiah or a player, so the team seems to play very emotionally but they are inconsistent. And they are unpredictable- you never know who will play well for them. Hopefully Bosh goes on a tear and Moon makes up for the lack of rebounding. The bench played well in Philly and I'm expecting more of our team chemistry to show through. That said, I hope the "Fire Isaiah" chants don't make our guys nervous.
