2008-9 Game Thread: Knicks vs Wizards

TB: [Knicks won the last meeting 114-108.] What can you say? Almost nothing is going right for Washington. The Wizards are one of the worst teams on both offense (27th) and defense (27th). They are without two of last year’s starters; Gilbert Arenas will be out until December, and Brendan Haywood may not play at all this year. Combine that with the slow start from Deshawn “You can’t see me” Stevenson, and you get arguably the worst team in the conference. What to watch for: Who is going to guard Caron Butler? Butler dropped 30 on the Knicks and pretty …continue reading

(Note: The gray defensive circles labeled 1-5 are position specific. A point guard is a 1, a center is a 5, etc.) As you can see, it’s not as “tricky” as last week’s play, but equally effective.
