    Game Thread Game 7: Knicks vs Spurs 11/11 @ 8:30pm ET

    The New York Knicks (4-2) vs the San Antonio Spurs (1-4)
    Tues. 11/11 at 8:30pm ET on MSG






    Welcome to the MSGKnickz33 Pregame show, Im your host the Gold Mac 10 and I would like to welcome you to the show. The Knicks are off to a good start with a 4 and 2 record. Their most impressive win came Sunday when they defeated the undefeated Utah Jazz, but was it really impressive? Deron Williams did not play. As George Bush once said, "You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on."


    Offensively the Knicks ran like a well oiled machine. They've played with confidence and every one appears to be on the same page. Zach Randolph (at least statistically) has been the best Knick to date. Hes averaging just shy of 20 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. Jamal Crawford is off to a much better start this year then he was last year. His shot selection has been much better. Crawfords defense is still non existent but his 13.8 shots per game is much improved from last years 17+ shots per game, and hes only averaging a point and a half less then he did last year. Chris Duhon has done a nice job of moving the ball as proven by his 6.7 assists per game.


    The San Antonio Spurs will be without 2 of their best players. Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker As they say you cant teach an old dog new tricks, but unfortunately this old dog doesn't do his tricks as good as he once did. If the Knicks lose this game, it will be dissapointing. Tim Duncan is still a top 10 player in the league, but he does not have a strong supporting cast with the other two members of the big three sitting on the bench.


    If you were unable to see the Jazz game heres the highlights

    MSG33 PresEnTs the KeY MatChuP: Zach Randolph vs Tim Duncan




    VS



    Zach Randolph

    Zach Randolph is off to a great start, at least statistically. He has been a monster on the boards and a force on offense. His 5 turnovers against Utah make me sick...but the difference between Z-bo and Eddy Curry is that Z-bo still had 25 points (9-20) and 14 rebounds. Despite having no athletic ability, Zach is a skilled player in the low post with a variety of moves. He might have a difficult time getting his shots off over the 7'1" Tim Duncan, who is a great defender.

    19.8 PPG
    11.5 RPG
    44.1 FG%
    1.7 APG
    2.3 TOPG

    I gotta also point out that Zach is 4-11 from 3 point range

    Tim Duncan

    Many consider Duncan to be the greatest power forward of all time. He still has not shown any signs of slowing down. At age 32, hes still one of the best if not the best big man in the league. Hes averaging 26 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. He will be a very tough challenge for the shorter Zach Randolph, but if Z-bo can come close to matching Duncans production then this game should be a wrap for the Knicks. They should win even if Zach has a bad game.

    The Official MSG33 Pregame Strategy:
    • Show up ready to play
    • Look to score!!! Spurs are just as bad defensively as we are
    • Attack the Rim!!! Spurs are only blocking just over 2 shots a game
    • Look to double Timmy D: Z-bo cant guard him



    Player Spotlight




    Jamal Crawford





    Crawford has looked a lot more comfortable in Mike D'antoni's system so far. His shot selection has improved from last year. Hes been more selective and its helped the team a lot. I do not expect him to keep this up, but I hope he does.

    Jamal Crawfords Stats:

    07-08: 20.4ppg, 17.4 fg attempts
    08-09: 19.2ppg, 13.8 fg attempts



    Keep up the good work Crawford

    Knicks win 111 - 99! We're on a roll and the Spurs ain't used to playing without TP at the point. Big game for Duhon and JC

    Low scoring first quarter, the Spurs are only giving us one shot on offense.
    This is why we need another bigman....prefer a shotblocker to go with Lee and Zach

    This is going to be a very tough matchup for Zach. Tim Duncan is probably the best defender on the low block of all time, so Zach's definitely gonna have to work for his points. Plus, we don't really have anyone who can defend him, so we're gonna have to double/triple team him. I still think this will be a relatively easy win for the Knicks, the Spurs just don't have enough firepower without Parker and Ginobli.

    Seriously?

    Not Dikembe? Hakeem the Dream? Ewing?

    ****, those are just three shot blocker than I can think of....



    But on another note, the Spurs so far this year are one of the WORST defensive teams in the league. Yep, thats right. WORST. I know, its a real shock.

    112-107

    Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are the two most important players.. they could get away with those two and not have duncan.. they could get away with one of those guards.. they could not get away without either of those guards.. I expect a good game, Duncan will score 30 to 40. I expect Crawford to take advantage and have another "good" crawful game

    Good game thread, MSG. I'm looking forward to this game. It will be interesting to see how Duncan and Randolph matchup and how Roger Mason and Jamal Crawford match up.
