    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.




    STARTING LINEUPS

    The Toronto Raptors

    pg-Jose Calderon
    sg-Anthony Parker
    sf-Demario Moon
    pf-Chris Bosh
    C-Andrea Bargnani


    *T.J. Ford is listed as day-to-day (suprise)

    AND NOW YOUR NEW YORK KNICKS!!!!

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




    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)

    if that was part of the poll and also the fact they now have 13 draft picks over the next 3 seasons i would have voted Seattle.

    Toronto will win by over 20 pts with ease. Calderon will almost get a triple double and i expect Bosh to score 40. He did it easily last time against us and i cant see why he cant again.

    The Raptors can easily win this game. They just have to let Andrea Bargnani get open 3's on the no D Eddy Curry, and let Anthony Parker drive it on Jamal Crawford.I think this game is gonna be close, cause we're at the Garden, but I say the Raptors win.The Knicks have nobody that can stop the 3 point shooting of the Raptors, or their All Star, Chris Bosh.I think Crawford and Randolph can match Parker and Bosh offensively, but they don't have the defense to stop anyone from scoring, and Curry is just non-existant. David Lee and Nate always give it 110%, but they don't have the defense to stop outside shooters, either.Isiah should play Jeffries on Bargnani,Balkman on Moon, and let Fred Jones play a lot of minutes on Parker. Nobody on the Knicks can stop Calderon, so he might as well let his son, Jamal, guard him.Balkman, Jones, and Jeffries need 30+ minutes for this one, if the Knicks want any chance to win.Starting lineup I would use:
    PG Jamal Crawford
    SG Fred Jones
    SF Renaldo Balkman
    PF Zach Randolph
    C Jared Jeffries
    Bench: David Lee, Eddy Curry,Nate the Great,Malik Rose

    with that starting lineup, on "O" its like playing 2 against 5... ok maybe 2 1/2 vs 5 (i'll concide a 1/2 to freddie)

    lol nice thread, I voted for that the Sonics got the best trade, they are in the rebuilding stage, as we speak, we had Portland, now Memphis, Seattle, New Jersey, but New York(Isiah Thomas) has not ever looked at that type of strategy, I think when ever we are bound to get that first round pick, we better build the team around the player we draft.

    We play the Raptors tonight & Sunday, the Knicks "One on One" technique has problems in a two game series.
    The only way Curry & Zach could dominate Barganni & Bosh is if SF-Q.Richardson peremeter shooting is 12 for 15 FGA. The Knicks have to double & tripple team oponents SF while no team ever double team Q.Richardson (he is a liability).

    Knick-Fans better start yelling "Wilson Chandler" to give Crawford & Zach some big HELP on offense, because trading points is better than force feeding turnovers.

    welcome to Knicksonline.com, Im the Gold Mac 10 of the site. Occasionally the Knicks do, reminding people that miracles do happen from time to time. Maybe one will happen tonight.

    Thanks
    Yeah, it would be nice if the Knicks would go on a ten game winning streak or something like that.

    I really dont care if the Knicks win or lose, it would be nice to see the Celtics lose their 3rd in a row.
