    Default Utah Jazz vs New York Knicks Game Thread 1/30

    The New York Knicks(14-30) vs The Utah Jazz(27-18)
    Wed. 1/30 at 9:00pm ET on MSG


    Welcome to the MSGKnickz33 Pregame show, Im your host Jazzy Jeff and were here to take a look at Wednesday nights matchup. The Jazz have won 5 straight games and 9 out of their last 10. They are in 4th place in the Western Conference. Apparently the Gordon Giricek for Kyle Korver trade has worked for Utah. The Knicks lost their 2nd straight game but they still have won 5 out of their last 10. They had a dissapointing collapse in the 4th quarter of Tuesday nights game in LA. Eddy Curry only played 16 minutes because of foul trouble.

    STARTING LINEUPS

    The Utah Jazz

    pg-Deron Williams
    sg-Ronnie Brewer
    sf-Andrei Kirilenko
    pf-Carlos Boozer
    C-Mehmet Okur


    AND NOW YOUR NEW YORK KNICKERBOCKERS!!!!

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


    MSG33 PresEnTs the KeY MatChuP: Carlos Boozer vs Zach Randolph






    Beats Curry vs Kwame Brown. Zach Randolph put up good numbers ealier this season against Boozer and the Jazz. Look for Zach to score and lead the Knicks in rebounds again. The problem with this matchup is that its not one-sided, Boozer got his. Lets compare their stats from the Jazz Knicks game earlier this season.


    Zach Randolph:

    34minutes
    25pts
    14rbs
    73.3fg%

    Carlos Boozer:

    31minutes
    30pts
    12rbs
    66.7fg%

    As we see we have a good matchup here. Both players did a good job of scoring while shooting high percentages and rebounding. Boozer got in foul trouble. This combined with Stephon Marburys excellent performance propelled the Knicks to victory. The Knicks will need more then Randolph to step up to win this game. Its going to have to be a "team" win.

    The Official MSG33 Pregame Strategy:
    • Utah = 5th best team offensively(105.3ppg).......Defense!!!
    • Move the ball and play as a team!!!
    • Protect the Ball!!!!! Jazz rank 2nd in steals (9.1spg)
    • Dont leave Crawford on Deron Williams for too long, too much of a strength advantage for Williams



    Player Spotlight



    *This is another new addition to my game thread. The Player Spotlight is where we moniter how a player on the Knicks has performed over the 5 most recent games.

    Lets Take a look at Quentin Richardson(no homo). During recent discussions a couple of members on here have mentioned that hes shootin somewhat better but still not what he was.

    Quentin Richardson Last 5 Games

    28.6mpg
    7.6ppg
    4.4rpg
    39.5fg%
    44.4%3p

    This is an improvement from his season stats:

    28.6mpg
    7ppg
    4.9rpg
    33.7fg%
    30.3%3P

    Notice his minutes are the same on the season that they are for the past 5 games. As we can tell by the shooting percentages he is shooting better but still not back to last years form.

    Eastern Conference Standings

    1. Celtics(35-8)
    2. Pistons(32-13)-4GB
    3. Magic(28-18)-8.5GB
    4. Wizards(24-19)11GB
    5. Cavs(24-19)-11GB
    6. Raptors(24-20)11.5GB
    7. Hawks(18-23)16GB
    8. Nets(19-26)17GB
    9. Pacers(19-27)17.5GB
    10. Bulls(18-26)17.5GB
    11. Bobcats(18-27)18GB
    12. Bucks(18-28)18.5GB
    13. 76ers(17-28)19GB
    14. Knicks(14-30)21.5GB
    15. Heat(9-34)26GB


    The Official Playoff Race: Knicks are 4.5 games out


    Lets compare numbers from the first 3 months of the NBA season.

    November(5-11):Opponents Points per game=101.5
    93.1ppg,43.4rpg,17apg,42.9fg%,32.2%3P,70.2FT%,6.9s pg,3.2bpg

    December(3-11):Opponents Points per game=102.6
    94.6ppg,41.3rpg,16.4apg,42.6fg%,33.1%3P,70.7FT%,6. 7spg,1.5bpg

    January(6-9):Opponents Points per game=98.7
    96.9ppg,40.7rpg,21.4apg,46.1fg%,35.3%3P,74.7FT%,5. 6spg,2.1bpg

    Jazz Top 3 Point shooters
    1. C.J. Miles-43.5%
    2. Deron Williams-39.4%
    3. Mehmet Okur-38%
    4. Jason Hart-37.9%
    5. Andrei Kirilenko-37.3%
    6. Kyle Korver-33.3%


    *Injury Report=Jason Hart, Jan. 27--Day to day

    The Knicks will have their hands full with Deron Williams and the Utah Jazz. He has become one of the best point guards in the NBA after leading his team to the Western Conference Finals last year. Deron is averaging 19 points and 9.5 assists. Hes also avgeraging 3.5 turnovers per game. Utah is not a shot blocking team. When compared to the Knicks they are but when compared to other teams, 4.27bpg only ranks 24th. When it comes to shot blocking, the Knicks are an outlier compared to the rest of the league. Sacramento, the 29th worse shot blocking team averages 3.9bpg. The Knicks who are last average 2.3bpg. Thats a difference of 1.6 which is sad and depressing to Knicks fans who watched them in the 90's and before that.

    Utah has a tough bench with players who can come in and make an impact. The Knicks need to be aware of Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, Matt Harpring, CJ Miles, Jason Hart, and Ronnie Price. Isiah needs to go to his bench if Utahs energy and offense is too much to keep up with. Nate Robinson, David Lee, and Renaldo Balkman are always prepared to bring energy and disrupt the opposing teams continuity.

    That does it for my pregame show. I thank everyone for joining me and remember to tune in tonight to catch the Knicks and the Jazz.

    I voted for T-Mac he is a bit over rated, but on top of that he is a ball hog, and he is injury prone X 10.

    nice thread there MSG.
    Okur may have a field day playing on Curry, he wont play D on him and he is a good shooter and can hit the 3.

    yeah i voted for tmac too-cuz the first thing i think about him is injuries.
    And great game thread MSG33-this has to be the best one yet.

    The knicks played good from what i saw last night (i fell asleep at half) i looked at the box scroe and i know that box scores are a terrible way of judging the knicks play- but i saw they were right in it but then they got outplayed in the 4th quarter-what a suprise.

    as for tonight-seeing that they did arite last night-they should be in it for most of it. i mean as long as we keep em from shootin 3's. im thinkin a win tonight. wate- im HOPING a win tonight. we need some momentum.

    Great thread as always,MSG.I looked at NBA.Com, and I found out that Renaldo Balkman got suspended for 1 game without pay,due to a flagrant elbow he threw at Vujacic last night.I think it's bullsh*t,considering the Lakers whooped our ass anyways, and his elbow didn't effect the game, but that's just my view on it.About the game,I think the Knicks are going to win.The three guys that will have to step it up are Zach Randolph,Jamal Crawford,and Nate Robinson.Nate and Jamal must score at least a combined 30 points, to neutralize Deron Williams.Z-Bo will have to score on Carlos Boozer, cause Boozer will definitely get some points on him.In my opinion,the Knicks should let Jared Jeffries get some playing time.Curry isn't used to guarding centers like Okur on the perimeter, but Jeffries is used to guarding guards,forwards, and even centers.Another interesting fact is that the Knicks go into this game having won 6 of their last 7 meetings against the Jazz.

    we wont win, Jazz will beat us by over 10 pts. I hope im wrong but that last quarter was crap and the Jazz looked great the other night, all we can hope for is that they have a let down.
    Boozer will give Zach the biggest arse rapeing of his life.
    Lets hope Nate and Jamal shoot in the high percentages and see what happens.

    This Game Is Another Lose, Stephon Marbury Is The Jazz Killer And Without Him, There Is No Way The Knicks Are Coming Out With A Victory. Is It Me Or Am I Smoking Some Good Stuff, Marbury Is The Jazz Killer. My Pops Was Even Saying It, He Said The Knicks Have No Chance Against The Jazz With Steph Out Because He Is The Jazz Killer And I Know Jerry Sloan Is Also Excited He Wouldn't Have To Deal With Marbury.

    I saw the replay and it looked intentional. lol it was madd dirty no homo. Balkman looked frustrated and it he threw his elbow. Balkman looks like a friendly person but after seein that elbow and seein him give the finger to the camera hes got an attitude but thats good, thats what we need.
