New York Knicks vs Dallas Mavericks Game Thread 3/10
The New York Knicks(18-45) vs The Dallas Mavericks(40-23)
Mon. 3/10 at 8:30pm ET on MSG
Welcome to the MSGKnickz33 Pregame show, Im your host Jazzy Jeff and its time to break down tonights game against the Mavericks. The Knicks have only won 2 out of their last 8 games, most recently having loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Nate Robinson exploded for a career high 45 points to go with 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and only 2 turnovers in 52 minutes. Plenty more on Nate Robinson coming up.
The Dallas Mavericks have been inconsistent so far since acquiring Jason Kidd. They have won 5 out of their last 10 games, looking to get an easy win tonight. Alot of people dont give the Mavericks enough credit, even though they were embarrassed in the finals by Miami 2 years ago, and embarrassed last year as a #1 seed in the 1st round, by the Warriors. Most fans think that the Mavs are a high scoring team, but they have the 7th best defense in the NBA, and the 12th best offense.

For the poll, I voted for Nate Robinson. Anyone that votes for Crawford must not pay attention to standings. The Knicks are 18-45 on the season, and most of those losses come with Crawford as the number one option on offense. Crawford is a good shooting guard, but he's not someone you run the offense through. Anyways, about the game:
Lineup I think the Knicks should use:
C-Jared Jeffries(have Jeffries guard Nowitziki on defense)
Mardy Collins, Quentin Richardson,Renaldo Balkman, David Lee and Malik Rose(he deserves a reward for how he's played these last 3 games)
I think the Knicks are going to lose. They have no defense, and they are undermanned coming into this game(no Crawford or Curry).I think the game will be close, because the Mavs have been struggling, since Acquiring Kidd and losing Devin Harris. However, they will still lose.
Prediction: Mavs 106 Knicks: 99
The knicks have little chance to win tonight against a championship contending Dallas. They are a tough team who have managed to head in the right direction. The KNicks right now have been playing well, despite the lack of wins. This team is more like last years team. Competitve. Sure they don't close out, but they are not getting killed either. I loved the effort against the trailblazers. I could deal with 18 wins and 45 loses as long as more often than not the games were played with the heart they played in Portland.
i put money on the Knicks due to them paying $10.45 for the win and also got Miami at $2.00 but found out Wade is out for the season so there goes my money.
Dallas will win easy, well they should anyways.
Kidd triple double
Did you hear what Isiah Thomas said, when asked about how he felt about Curry's conditioning? Quote:"I think Curry's conditioning is not a problem."Then the media asked:"well, don't you think he should lose a few pounds?" Isiah's response:"He's been in good shape since he's been here. He's just a big man." Isiah is a corrupt politician. I've said it before, and this proves my point even further.
