Welcome to the MSG33 pregame show, Im your host Jazzy Jeff and were gonna break down tonights game.
I would like to start by congratulating Marcus Camby and the Denver Nuggets on a job well done last night against the Boston Celtics. Camby finished with 11 points, 13 rebounds, and 9 blocks. The Celtics have now lost 10 games, which makes me happy.
The Knicks came away with a win last night against Washington. David Lee stepped up on offense scoring 19 points, Nate Robinson and Q-Rich also played well.

(video stolen from Starks, sorry Starks, you get one free bad comment about Marbury)
Who would win a fight, Zach Randolph (baby-fat) vs Nate Robinson (50 Cent)?
Lets look at what is the opposite of the standings, the race for the worst record in the league. Suprisingly the Knicks managed to somehow be in the hunt for both the #8 spot in the playoffs and the worst record in the league. One outcome is much more likely then the other.

That does it for my show, catch the Knicks and the 76ers tonight on MSG. Will the Knicks make it 2 in a row?
I voted for Nate Robinson to win the fight against Z-Bo. We all know that Randolph is buns. Anyway, about tonight's game.This game is very important as far as playoffs are concerned. I am very pesimistic, so I don't think the Knicks have a chance in hell to make it, but since they are mathematically in it, that's why I'm bring up the importance of this game.The 76ers are in 8th place, and the Knicks are 6.5 games behind. If the Knicks win tonight, they will narrow the margin to 5.5 games behind.If the Nets lose, then the Knicks will be 5.5 games out of the 7th and 8th spot. I say the Knicks lose this game. The Knicks have blown every opportunity they've had to make the playoffs, so what makes this game any different? The Knicks are buried in the dirt, and they will continue to be buried.
