    Game Thread Toronto Raptors vs New York Knicks Game Thread 2/22

    *Game Thread not finished, Had it done but sh*t got f*cked up, pissed me off. Sorry to anyone who was looking forward to it being finished.

    The Toronto Raptors(29-23) vs The New York Knicks(16-38)
    Fri. 2/22 at 7:30pm ET on MSG




    Welcome to the MSGKnickz33 Pregame show, Im your host Jazzy Jeff and its time to break down Friday nights game. The Knicks are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Week by week, the Knicks re-define the meaning of rock bottom. As im sure we all know by now, Isiah chose not to make any trades. It will be interesting to see what happens, now that we know everyone is here to stay for the rest of the season. Several players are rumored to be unhappy in New York. One player that we can be sure about is Zach Randolph. If anything, the rest of the team should be upset with him and his distracting, bad attitude.

    Although no teams have clinched the playoffs yet, it is safe to say the Raptors and every other Eastern Conference team with a record of .500 and up is a lock for the playoffs. Toronto has won 6 out of their last 10 games, overcoming a 37 point 15 rebound performance by the #1 big man in the NBA, Dwight Howard. Bosh had 40 points but only 5 rebounds. Howard>>>Bosh. Jose Calderon, after getting snubbed from the all-star game, scored 19 points (8-10) and added 13 assists. If they stick to the script, they will have no problems with the Knicks.

    MSG33 PresEnTs the KeY MatChuP: ANTHONY PARKER VS JAMAL CRAWFORD







    Jamal Crawford Last 5 Games

    Jamal Crawford might be the closest thing the Knicks have to a leader, but at the same time hes far from a leader. On a team where his role could be reduced, he mite not be that bad of a role player. The problem is you cant turn a role player into a star. Overall Crawfords shot has been off all season, but over the last 5 games he has shown a small improvement but he'll have a game or 2 soon where his shooting percentage is very low, its part of his routine. Heres his stats for the last 5 games:

    43.6mpg
    23ppg
    42.86fg%
    35.3% 3PT
    6apg
    3rpg
    2spg
    3.2topg

    Crawfords turnovers have gone up. Isiahs son is well conditioned, but after that I cant give him too much credit. He needs to attack the basket more, hes got the handling skills and speed to get to the rim.

    7.8 field goals made per game
    18.2 field goals attempted per game

    2.4 3PT made per game
    6.8 3PT attempted per game

    Crawford has attempted 34 3pointers and 30 freethrows over the last 5 games. I hope some of the people who say Im too hard on Crawford (no homo) see what Im talkin about. Part of the blame has to go to Isiah Thomas, but when Crawfords on the court, being an excellent free throw shooter he needs to attack and go to the line more often. His soft mentality prevents him from having more value, im not even gonna talk about his defense.


    Anthony Parker Last 5 Games

    33mpg
    7.4ppg
    36.36fg%
    28.6% 3PT
    1.2apg
    3.2rpg
    .8spg
    .2topg

    Very low numbers for Anthony Parker, but .2 turnovers in 33 minutes per game is very impressive. Usually, his shooting percentages are above 46%, but recently hes making Crawford look like a good shooter. Parker is normally does not make a big impact statistically, hes a good team player who defends, plays within the team system, and does not turn the ball over that much. We'll see if his defense can slow down Crawford.



    The Official MSG33 Pregame Strategy:
    • Give the ball to Q-Rich!!! (Im sorry for this one)
    • Perimeter Defense!!!! Raptors-42% 3PT (1st in league)
    • Crash Boards!!!! Knicks rpg-17th Raptors rpg-29th(soft)
    • Take Care of the Ball!!! Raptors-11.1topg(1st-tied with Pistons) Celtics-14.3topg(17th)(That will hurt in the playoffs)
