Magic/Knicks preview


  • At 5:42 AM, Blogger Mike from Illinois said…

    The Magic (32-38, 11-24 away, 8th East) visit slumping NY (30-39, 18-17 home, 10th East) in a key battle for playoff positioning. NY is coming off a 90-68 blowout loss at CLE on FRI. It was their lowest scoring game of the season. C Eddy Curry led the Knicks with 27 pts. NY has lost 5 of their last 6 games, but have been without F David Lee, G/F Quentin Richardson, and G Jamal Crawford, who is out for the season. Lee and Richardson may or may not play tonight.

    NY is led in scoring by Curry, averaging 19 pts, 7 rebs; G Stephon Marbury 15.7 ppg, 5.5 asts; Richardson 13 pts, 7.2 rebs; Lee 11 pts, 10.6 rebs; former Magic G Steve Francis 10.5 ppg, 4.1 asts; and F/C Channing Frye 9.9 ppg. NY averages 98.2 ppg while allowing 100.5 ppg. The Magic average 93.7 ppg, while allowing 94.2 ppg.

    In their last 3 losses, the Knicks have averaged just 77 ppg. They have lost 4 of their last 5 at home. NY has won the previous two games with the Magic this season. Magic have won 3 of their last 5 games, and will try once again for that elusive 2 game winning streak.

    I don't have a good feeling about this game, especially if David Lee plays for the Knicks. This is almost a must-win game for them, as they are 1 1/2 games behind the Magic for the 8th spot. I wouldn't be surprised to see the former Stevie Franchise have a good game against his old team. Eddy Curry always does well against the Magic.

    If the Magic can get a good game from more than just 1 or 2 players, then they have a shot at a win. However, I'm predicting a close Knicks victory... hope the Magic can prove me wrong.

    Seeing as how we've played very poor against the knicks the last couple of games,i expect this to be a tough game where i think the difference will be who can get the easy baskets,we go as our point guard position goes so jameer and who-ever is his back-up tonight will be key,that is what usually decides what type of team we are from any given night because our starting unit usually plays horrible when we arent making outside shots,if we keep the turnovers low,and the jumpshots down,the magic win...

    I hope that Mike is right and Big Figure is wrong since I want the losses to pile up. I think, however, that if we cannot beat this NY team on consistent basis we have no business of being in the play-offs by default, since NJ and IND have tougher schedules than us, and they are so pitiful that they will match our losses game for game, at which case we are gonna make to the play-offs even at the 7th spot.
