Knicks @ Raps
On this site it seems two of the biggest fanbases belong to the New York Knicks, and the Toronto Raptors. Tonight the two sqaure off and it should be a very close matchup between two similar teams with frontcourt injuries.
Both teams are deep in depth at the wing spots and very thin upfront. IMO the battle at the PG position between Jack and Felton will decide this matchup. Also Bargnani will need to grab at least 7 rebounds and block a couple shots.
Lets go Raps!!!
this is the most anticipated knicks season in a while....lets gooooooooooo
The ACC renovations look amazing. Red and Black seats! I guess they figured since they maybe empty for alot of the season, they might as well get them renovated...
...... I am here
Knicksboy,Ive been waiting. My greatest rival! LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
I'm expecting Amare to come out strong and the Raptors to come out a little timid.
Knicks by.... 12.
see more Gifs
I expect this.
Off-Topic, but The Nets had a sexy intro. Too bad the stands are empty.
I heard NJ was selling tickets for 39 cents.
I'm not kidding. A friend txted me that.
Dantoni sucks balls.
I went to a Blazer preseason game last week. There was probably twice as many people there as there is at the Nets game at tip-off.
BTW, I actually expect the Nets to win this game.
Excited to see the new Knicks lineup.
Uhoh Bargnanis rebounding and being aggressive right off the bat.
What are you talking about Bargnanis the best player on the floor! Ha!
Fields with the nice piece of defense.
Bargnani is playing very well in these first two minutes.
Man...Mogzov is looking stiff.
I like Felton and Stats getting that sync. I like.
is two foul prove right now theres going to be a period of adjusting to the nba game for him hell be fine soon i hope
doesnt is seem that Steve Nash misses Amare more than Amare misses Steve Nash
Anyone else seeing Felton running? Man, he's doing well so far.
Toronto however, is beating themselves.
yea me nd my boys getting tix to la game lol
Calderon needs to sit his ass down on the bench and watch what Jack is doing for a long time.
Bargnani has 18 points and 4 rebounds for you haters. Thats almost his averages for last year. Now hopefully he can do it for 2 games straight or at least 2 halves...
adth.net is trippin is there another place I can watch this Knicks game
Is Randolph looking like the allstar some predicted? How is landry playing? Are the raptors that good or the knicks just aren't looking that good?
Randolph sprain ankle...not playing
Fields is looking good
Knicks looking alright...still some troubles on Defense but they also have 10 blocks thus far.
Some great play by Jack, he single handidly brought the Raps back into this game. Must execute now down by 3.
Man, couple notes from me
I like the fact NO knick played 40 min tonight. Good to see Dantoni spreading the PT. Once Randolph comes back...Mozgov better get ready for Splinters
Amar'e Stoudemire was cold all 3rd quarter but he made at least 5 moves late in the 4th that David Lee could not have made.
Raymond Felton....15points, 6rebounds, 6assists. He played really well and actually looked better then I thought. Like I and many people have said, he was locked down in LB's system in Charlotte
Landry Fields...keep starting him, he held DeRozan to 9 points (which is sad)
Wilson Chandler, keep him on the bench. He was hungry tonight.
Gallo....I'm starting to lose the love for him a little bit.
Those nine turnovers from Amare....
Yup, Amar'e had 9 turnovers. But he made it up with 3 solid baskets late in the game.
Didn't watch game but going by numbers I'd have to say
Chandler looks like he had a good offensive game
Amare didn't do anymore then what David lee does except 9 turnovers isn't good. I hope he wasn't checking barnani who seemed to have had a good offensive game
Feltons numbers look good
Always good to get a win but I'd be concerned about winning by five against IMO the worst team in the NBA
I'd be more concerned if I was a raptors fan
Amare was forcing a bit and Evans was frustrating him because he is a dirty &$#%#&@!. Big deal its his first real game with a brand new team, if the three super&$#%#&@! can have a rough first game, Amar'e should be allowed to have some growing pains with a new team too. Wheres that skinny whiny &$#%#&@! Bosh? 2 games 11ppg....
Knicks led from mid 1st till the end of the game, Toronto made a little run late it happens its the NBA.
If New York can get Melo and only lose Curry, Randolp, Gallo and some players like Roger Mason or Azubuike without losing anyone else, They could be a 50 win team but right now I can see 40 to 45 games for them. Also Felton will increase his stats as the him and the Knicks get more comfortable playing together.
Amare did not have a great game but still it is early and also to compare him to Lee who had years to play in the system and with most of the same players is really dumb. Chemistry takes time. Felton started off slow but finished off pretty good as did Amare in the 4th quarter. That is what you would ask for your go to guy is to get the points in the 4th quarter with the game on the line.
Gallo and Randolph will need to play better this year in order for Denver to want them.
The difference in that is Miami played Boston. Knicks played the raptors. Two teams on opposite ends of the spectrum. I can understand Amare getting used to the new team but don't do the sour grapes thing on Evans because he plays tough hard defense
Sheltwon you wanna take back you're prediction that robin lopez will be better than brook lopez this year? Or you sticking with it?
fact is the Knicks won the game and you are still being all negative. EVERY team in the NBA is capable of winning on any given night so I dont care if the Knicks win by 5 or 50, Ill take the win. As for your posterboy Brook how did his team just barely sneak out a win against an awful pistons team at home?
NY doesn't care how a win comes a win is a win. even better on the road
really like the 11 blocks the team had
knciks did a better job on bargyani in second half but jack was playing well
i was very angry about how evan was playin sooooooooooooooooo f'in dirty im suprised he didnt grab amares balls today
will the thrill looked really good
billy walker wasnt playing well today
well take the W and now on to the next one
Plus Lebron James has had 17 turnovers in 2 games... but people still feel the need to make negative Knick comments.
I stated negitive and positive. Of course you got butt hurt about the negitive but the truth is the truth. And I could care less what the nets do. I'm a laker fan:). I asked about brook vs robin. Not nets vs suns.
Could care less about what lebron does but even if he gets 20 turnovers next game he's still better than all the knicks in the history of there franchise. And don't front like you weren't willing to sell you're soul to get him to you're team now that he left you at the alter you dump on him. Lol. Classic
Don't get butt hurt everytime someone says something negitive about the knicks. It's just reality that there's more negitive than positive when mentioning the knicks untill they prove other wise. Like I said before a win is a win and the knicks should be happy with any win they can get
