The Knicks head to Toronto this afternoon to take on the division-leading Raptors.
This will obviously be a tough game, but knowing this team, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Knicks play the Raptors surprisingly well. Melo is much more suited to be a 4 nowadays, so I think he’ll have a good game.
The issue will be defense, of course. Kyle Lowry didn’t do that well against the Knicks last time they played, but he’s also carved the Knicks up in the past.
This stretch of games is going to be the logical make or break point of the season. If they win a few more games than expected, they will be right back into the thick of the shitty Eastern Conference playoff picture. If they lose a lot, then LOGICALLY they should blow the team up. They won’t, but at least they won’t ADD to the team this year.
Let’s at least hope for a fun game!
Let’s go, Knicks?
