I think that Sweetney Frank williams and Mutombo will be the X factors for the first round against the nets.
Sweetney is the hardest worker for the knicks and will be able to use his ability to get offensive rebounds and get the the foul line
Frank williams will be an X factor because of his fancy style of play. FW really gets the crowd going and is able to find the open man. He is a very good point gaurd who is able to penetrate and dish and a descent outside shot
Mutombo will not only be a defensive threat but an offensive threat also. I see him overmatching Jason collins with whit alone. Mutombo has been in the playoffs before and I think he will take advantage of Collins. Last time Mutombo faced the knicks he had 10 blocks, he will be very important.
And of course you cant forget about HOuston if he plays or not
what do you think
