    Default Official New York Knicks vs. Portland Trailblazers Game Thread 12/2/08

    New York Knicks(8-8) vs. Portland Trailblazers(12-6) Game Thread



    Al Harrington and the Knicks
    leads team--->17 points per game, 7 rebounds

    vs.


    Brandon Roy and the Trailblazers
    17th in the NBA --->21.1 points, 5.1 assists


    The Knicks are coming off an impressive 13 point win against the Golden State Warriors. It was a big team effort, and everyone was hot from all parts of the floor. The Knicks look to make it two in a row, as the take on the Portland Trailblazers.


    The Trailblazers have been red hot. They are currently on a 4 game winning streak and have an 12-6 record, overall. They look to stay hot, as they take on the New York Knicks

    Key Matchup:



    Al Harrington


    vs.

    Lamarcus Aldridge


    Al Harrington is coming off of a 36 point, 12 rebound performance.
    Lamarcus Aldridge is one of the better power forwards in the Western Conference. It will be very interesting to see who comes out on top.

    Player Spotlight


    David Lee

    Lee recorded a career-high 37 points and 21 rebounds against the Warriors,
    on Saturday. Most of the damage was done inside, as Lee posted a lot of dunks and lay ups, off of missed shots. He also picked up some key rebounds which stopped the Warrior run, down the stretch.

    Prediction: Knicks 112 Trailblazers 111


    Starting lineups:

    Knicks
    PG Duhon
    SG Richardson
    SF Chandler
    PF Harrington
    C Lee

    Trailblazers
    PG Blake
    SG Roy
    SF Batum
    PF Aldridge
    C Oden

    This is gonna be a long, ugly game for us. Greg Oden is gonna dominate our small frontline, and Brandon Roy will score effortlessly against our bad defense. We're gonna have to double Oden, so Aldridge will probably have a good night too. I hope Cuttino Mobley can play, because we need someone who can defend Brandon Roy.

    Eddy Curry is out with an injury, and even if he wasn't injured, he's too fat to play. Cuttino Mobley has heart problems, so he still hasn't been cleared to play yet.

    Cuttino Mobley has played with a heart condition for a long time, so i doubt he won't be able to play. The newspapers are just trying to build up a story. The only reason Mobley is taking so long to get cleared is because his heart condition keeps popping up, whenever he gets a new physical. He'll be on the Knicks within the next 2-3 weeks. If not, then the Knicks were stupid for trading Randolph, which I already think they are, but that's besides the point. ZBO Od'd on the Heat, the other day. He had 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 1 block, in a 1 point win. The Clippers are 1-1, since the trade. That's saying a lot, considering the Clippers are 3-13 on the season. lmao

    camby and z-bo were beastin on the heat last night.

    zBo-27pts(11-20), 13rbs, 3asts
    Camby-12pts, 12rbs, 4blks, 3asts

    Thats the type of player randolph needs next to him (no homo), someone who can block shots and defend.


    Good game thread abcd. I agree with Lee being the spotlight player...without randolph, theres alotta rebounds to be had. Its lee's time to shine.

    Who's gonna guard Roy? This one's gonna be hauntingly reminiscent of the Pistons game. I dare say that there will be 7-8 out of 10 or 11 players in double figures for the Blazers. Once the bigs come in off the Blazers bench, guys like Outlaw are gonna have a field day against NY's tired legs.

    Duhon vs Blake is a key match to me as well as Harrington vs Aldridge. Blake is a robotic point guard and rarely errors. Don't want him to have a freelance shooting or passing game at all. Look for Oden to have his first big game against a small front court.

    We NEED to force a low assist/turnover ratio and force more individual play.

    Q Rich has to have another decent rebounding game and so does Chandler who should be pulling in 7-8 rpg.

    Is N8 back? I hope so.

    Not very optimistic for this one.

    Too many weapons and too big.

    Knicks 90-100 odd points to Blazers 110+

    my prediction

    knicks: 111
    blazers: 105

    i think the blazers will come out strong, and take a nice 8-10 halftime lead, but slowly the knicks will heat up from downtown, and take the lead in the fourth quarter, where they dont let it up
