    Game Thread New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls Game Thread

    New York Knicks(6-15) vs Chicago Bulls(7-13)

    Friday, 12/14 8:30PM ET Live on MSG

    Welcome to MSGKNickz33 pregame show, Im your host Jazzy Jeff and Im here to breakdown tomorrow nights matchup. The Bulls have won 5 out of their last 10 games and are beginning to play better. The Knicks have lost 4 straight and are now tied for the 3rd worst record in the league. The Memphis Grizzlies and the Miami Heat share the same record (6-15) as the Knicks. Only the Seattle Sonics and Minnesota Timberwolves are worse.

    Lets take a look at the starting lineups for both teams.

    The Chicago Bulls

    pg-Kirk Hinrich
    sg-Ben Gordon
    sf-Luol Deng
    pf-Joe Smith
    C-Ben Wallace


    AND NOW YOUR NEW YORK KNICKS!!!!!!

    AT POINT GUARD, JAMAL CRAWFORD
    AT SHOOTHING GUARD, FRED JONES
    AT SMALL FORWARD, QUENTIN RICHARDSON
    AT POWER FORWARD, ZACH RANDOLPH
    AT CENTER, EDDY CURRY



    Tonights Key Matchup is at the Shooting Guard Position.
    Fred Jnes vs Ben Gordon
    Ben Gordon can score quickly. Fred Jones needs to fight through picks and stay with Gordon while always gettin a hand in his face. Ben Gordon is the Bulls leading scorer averaging 18.1 points per game while Fred Jones has had some good games offensively but his strength is defense. It should be a good matchup for him because Gordon is only an inch taller. Jones is used to having to guard players 3 or 4 inches taller than himself.

    What do the Knicks need to do to win?

    • Chicago is the 9th best team defensively in the league. Knicks nee to take care of the ball, move the ball around and play as a team.
    • The Bulls are the 2nd worst team offensivley, Dont allow them to become one of the best teams on offense.
    • Attack Ben Wallace!!!! He's getting older and Curry had a couple of good games against him last year.
    • Box Out!!!! Chicago is a better rebounding team. At the same time, the Knicks should be a better rebounding team then they are so they need to work on boxing out and putting more effort in.
    • Guard their Guards!!!! Gordon and Hinrich have gotten off to slow starts but when they get going, they can put points up in a hurry. Both of them are good shooters and they can also break down defenses.



    Jamal Crawford needs to have another game where he shoots around 50% from the field. His 4 turnovers against Seattle hurt the team so he needs to do a better job of taking care of the ball. Hopefully going up against his former team will fire him up.

    Fred Jones needs to worry about defense more than offense. As mentioned in the key matchup, Ben Gordon can score. It will be Jones' job to deny him, which is a tough assignment. Once Gordon gets going, he can score 30 points easily. Thats why you cant allow him to make a couple of shots in a row because thats all it takes.

    Quentin Richardson should also not worry about offense, his field goal percentage is very low. He needs to focus on rebounding and doing the best job as he can defensivley on Luol Deng. Deng is a tough player to stop because of his combination of strength and athletic ability.

    Theres nothing special about Joe Smith so Zach Randolph needs to take it right at him. Smith does not have a single block in the past 5 games, but he did have a game where he scored 19 points against Chris Wilcox and the Seattle Sonics. This is not what Smith does nightly, hes a solid role player who might not be in the starting lineup the way Chicago continues to change their starter at the powerforward spot. Whoever Zach is matched up with, he needs to score. This team will not win games with their defense so they will have to do it with their offense.

    Eddy Curry will go up against his former team also. He will be matched up with Big Ben Wallace. Wallace has clearly slowed down. He is getting older but hes still Chicagos best rebounder and shot blocker. Curry is taller and stronger. He should look to get good positioning down low and take it right at Ben. He had a good game against Wallace last year which he credited for his improve confidence. Hopefully, the same will happen tomorrow night. Curry has not looked confident at all the past couple of weeks.

    Chicago has a tough bench. Tyrus Thomas, Andres Nocioni, Chris Duhon, and Joakim Noah are all capable of coming into the game and making an impact. Once this Chicago team gets things together, they're going to be tough because they have a good starting 5 and one of the better benches in the league. Nocioni would be a starter on many teams, he is intense and passionate about the game of basketball. The Knicks also have a talented bench. Look for David Lee, Renaldo Balkmen, and Nate Robinson to come into the game and make a difference. This should be a close game. The Knicks are more comfortable at this point playing on the road then they are at home so we'll see what happens.

    Im Jazzy Jeff and I thank everyone for joining me, catch the Knicks and Bulls tomorrow night on MSG.

    Knicks have no chance. They are playing the worst basketball of any team in the league and Chicago is healthier now and motivated to avenge that last loss. Looks like another blowout. You can turn off your TV at halftime.

    They gonna keep get beat until Marbury has played 2 or 3 games after comin back. This is proof that without Marbury, the knicks cant even beat teams like the Sonics and 76ers. I hope they get down big early. I want them to get it done and over with so I can go to bed, I gotta wake up 5:30 on Saturday for work. Even if they somehow have the lead at halftime its not worth watching the 2nd half cuz we all know whats gonna happen. I know Ill be stupid enough to stay up and watch the game and the Crawford misses a couple shots and turns the ball over and Chicago now has the lead with 2 minutes left in the game after trailing by 16 at the end of the 3rd. The KNicks have have collapsed offensively here in the 4th quarter and their defense has been poor the whole game. Ive seen it happen too many times but I continue to fall for it. Jerome, Eddy, and Z-Bo have the same problem cuz they continue to fall for Burger King.

    Man I like Marbury as much as the next dude. But even with Marbury we probably still would've gotten our ass beat by those teams. This team overall collectively is playing like ****.

    Well if you had any hope of Curry coming off the bench instead of starting tonight then sorry...

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    "It's only a matter of time before I put a complete game together and get back on track," Curry said.

    "I feel good on defense, but ultimately it's the coach's decision. I feel comfortable, but maybe [Thomas] sees something different over there. He's the coach and I've got 100 percent confidence in what he's doing."

    Ummm didnt Marbury just lose his dad when he played against Philly, and didnt he not play that long?

    He was startin to play better before this happened, NO WAY would we had lost those 2 games to Philly and that game to Seattle.

    Lilman BK you gotta check on things before you post dumb **** like that but its cool, enjoy your weed tonight, I know I'll enjoy mine. We need sumthin to help with the pain of constantly losin.

    And Knicklover, didnt Kidd miss that game also? And Curry Too? What is New Jersey without Kidd?

    Dont complain about D Lee. He is one of the better players on this team. He actually cares unlike Curry.. Curry got blocked, as a Center he sucks. No actually as a professional Basketball he blows!

    I agree, I know I got on Lee (no homo) sayin hes not an allstar but hes one of our most valuable players. He plays hard and he plays to win. Hes a true professional and he should be in the starting lineup instead of Currys Fat ASS.
