Knicks @ Spurs: Pre GT discussion
I'll copy and paste the following posts herein in to your GT, CA7.
As the NBA’s only unbeaten team, the Knicks are feeling good entering a difficult back-to-back against the Spurs and Grizzlies. The only negative news out of the New York camp is the knee swelling Ronnie Brewer is dealing with after Tuesday’s win in Orlando. Head coach Mike Woodson told reporters he will play on Thursday night and he is listed as probable for the contest. New York is 5-0 and will continue the first true road trip of the season in San Antonio before traveling to Memphis on Friday night.
It’s no surprise the Spurs are once again one of the top teams in the Western Conference and the entire league. A model of consistency over the last decade, San Antonio will contend for a title behind its Big Three of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. Additionally, the Spurs have sprinkled in some young and promising players to their roster with Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, and Tiago Splitter. San Antonio owns the best record in the Western Conference at 7-1 after three straight victories on the road. The only defeat for the Spurs was a 22-point loss to the Clippers on November 7.
Bummer about Brewer! We're gonna need all the help we can get against this crew of savvy old sea-farers.
Melo will destroy whoever plays on him, but I think that the front-court's D is gonna be paramount with Parker driving and Duncan weaving his magic.
Offensively I think we'll rely most on movement and perimeter shots to take down this time worn leviathan.
HUGE TEST for the league's only undefeated time.
