    Game Thread Game 1: NYK@MIA 10/28 7:30PM

    There must only be one reason why you are reading this.. It is time for KNICKS BASKETBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    New York Knicks (0-0)

    vs
    Miami Heat (0-0)

    Wednesday, October 28 2008


    Good Evening and welcome to another season of Knicks Basketball pre-game shows. I'm your host, Jpz17.

    This season I have decided to unleash a "new-look" Game Thread. This will go with the fact that Knicksonline has a new look.

    I'm very sorry Rady if you didn't want me to make that. If you want it off please edit this and take it out. I just though a new look everything would be fitting.


    ========================================

    This Knicks team isn't too different than the last Knicks team. They added some nice new role players this off season.


    #30 C Darko Milicic


    #43 PF Jordan Hill


    #23 PG Toney Douglas

    Darko is just a role player and I think will always be a role player. He is a good blocker and we need that off the bench. Jordan Hill may be our PF of the future, who knows. He seems like a bust right now but D'Antoni said he is a project. Give him more time. Toney Douglas is the biggest impact player we got, and I think he has GOBS of potential. I could see him being a mix of Chris Paul and Tony Parker (Not quite as good but you get what I'm saying). Toney is a real good pick and looks to be a steal.

    NOW.. to TONIGHT'S GAME!





    OFFICIAL JPZ PREDICTION

    Knicks- 102

    Heat- 101


    It will be a very tough game. Look for Nate and Wade to have a HUGE battle. I'd consider Nate a "little Wade".



    presents

    JPZ17's

    FAVE 5 KEYS TO WINNING
    • Try different defenders for Wade. If someone is getting blown out by Wade, switch him. I'd consider putting guys like Chandler, Duhon, Hughes, and Nate on Wade
    • GET THOSE BOARDS! If we can't get the rebounds we can't really run the fast-break. Why do you think we kept Lee?
    • Keep up the D!!! The Knicks had fantastic defense in pre-season. Keep it up
    • Al Harrington-- When he is hot the Knicks usually do well. When he is playing bad it is almost an automatic loss.
    • Leadership--The Knicks didn't have much leadership last year. They need guys to step it up and be the voice of the Knicks.
    Opinions

    Another season of knicks basketball is underway, when the our knicks visit the Miami heat to start the regular season. We enter the seasonw ith alot of question marks, 8 players in the final years of their contract and will be looking to impress. That said we will no doubt be a fun team to watch, and a team that has a chance at the postseason but there are still plenty of question, a huge one at PG and C ( the most important positions in basketball ) our defense will still struggle although it has looked more fluid during the postseason. Another question is we still lack a superstar, someone who could come in and dictate the game. Also it'll be interesting to see how Gallo will play in his first regular season game where he is healthy, and how he can rebound from a poor preseason, that said lets move on to the game


    The Knicks and Heat have history that dates back to the 90's and the has been a fairly even battle since, its always fun when you watch these two teams face off, but one thing - or player to watch is Dwyane Wade he killed the knicks, most notably in that one game where he brought the heat back from behind and scored 20 points in the 4th the knicks still dont have an answer to him at the 2 cause nate isnt that good defensively and Chandler is too slow, our one fighting chance to contain Wade and possibly prevent him from bursting out is Toney Douglas he has the size and skill and is great with his on ball defense to actually be positive but he is a rookie and D'Anotni might not give him major minutes out the gate.

    my prediction it will be a back-and-fourth game as both teams will have it going on offense but the game will come down to who will make the big shots and who will make the defensive stops, and i think that will be Miami cause of one player- Dwyane Wade. he's killed us before and he'll do it yet again and he sends us to Charlotte disappointed

    we do however get solid games from Lee, Harrington, Gallo and Chandler and Duhon leaves us scratching our heads with some retarded decisions

    X-factor- Douglas he'll surprise alot of us from game 1

    Predicition- Heat-101 Knicks- 97

    Knicks are starting a 2 game road trip showing indifferent form during the preseason.
    New York's hopes of a successfull season, even with differing opinions on what the Knicks are all about for this season, will all depend on the fortunes of David Lee.
    Rookie Toney Douglas has been a shining light during the preseason and looks a player of the future.
    Clearly the danger for the Knicks against Miami is Dwayne Wade. Wade will be licking his lips coming up against the Knicks. His record in recent seasons against the Knicks has been very good.
    Im prediciting a Knicks upset first up. I beleive the Knicks have what it takes to get up against the Heat, even if Wade lights it up.

    Our first game of the season will be a tough one against the Heat. The Knicks will be in Miami, meaning they will have to deal with Miami fans and one of the most annoying PA announcers in the league. In order to win, they will have to find a way to contain Dwayne Wade. He killed us last year, and we can't have that happen again. We gooing to have to send different defenders at him, double team, and sometimes triple team him. If we can shutdown Wade, there's no way the Heat can win. Another player to be wary of is Michael Beasley. He's had his fair share of criticsm and a tough offseason, but the dude can score. If we play hard defense, and run our offense smoothly, we should be able to pull out a win. My prediction: NYK-106 MIA-103

    It's at home so i expect us to win. Beasley gets his first double-double of the season, Wade gets 28 points, O'Neal shows us his healthy knees, and our bench helps us win this game.
    Wade is going to torch the Knicks.

    Heat win.
    its gunna be fun to watch wilson chandler try to guard dwade at sg...

    New York Knicks Position PHX Suns


    David Lee C Jermaine O'Neal


    Hmmmmm I'd say Lee wins this.
    JPZ17's Key matchup

    *Al Harrington PF Udonis Haslem*

    The reason why I feel this is the key is, if we do not win this one we are screwed.

    Jared Jefferies SF Michael Beasley

    Not a chance at winning this here sorry.
    Wilson Chandler SG Dwyane Wade

    Sorry Wilson..
    Chris Duhon PG Mario Chalmers


    Should be very fun to watch them

    Very nicely done JPZ...

    I think the Knicks hang tough early, but eventually this one slips away. D-Wade will be too much for the Knicks defense to handle, I think he goes off big in the opener. Maybe they can slow him down early, but I think he starts going wild on the defense in the second half and possibly late in the first half.

    I say: Heat 104 Knicks 92 but the Knicks will play the Heat closer than the score indicates.

    Great thread, JPZ. Props to the contributors as well. You're gettin' it in, son...



    Yes! We're undefeated! but we're also winless!



    The beginning of a new season is upon us. This year will be an exciting one for the Knicks. Mainly because of so many unknowns. Like a good suspense movie, the Knicks will keep us at the edge of our seats.



    How will the rookies perform? Who knows...



    Will gallinari live up to his potential? Maybe...



    Will duhon wear down midway thru the season like last year? Who gives a ****...



    So many questions are going to be answered this year. A year that will be vital to our immediate future. Let's all hope for the best, y'all.


    Go New York Go New York Go!

    Excited for the season to be back! And glad for the Knicks to have another shot at trying to have a respectable season. I expect a good game. I predict we win in a nail biter. Providing we play defense and contain Dwade somewhat..

    Default Great thread

    jpz17 - Fabulous layout, great intro to the season...I'm hyped.

    True Knick fan here....Knicks win going away by 14 points....DWade is contained and frustrated, possibly getting ejected with 2 techs after a smothering Knicks defensive scheme.

    I love to dream...it's what keeps hope alive!

    I'm cautiously optimistic for this game. I'm going to predict a 102-97 win for the good guys tonight.

    Keys the game

    Force Wade to shoot jumpshots and keep him off the foul line
    Run Jermaine O'neil all night long
    Shoot well

    I'm also predicting Gallo drops around 16 including a late game dagger.

    I think it'll be close... I'm going to be optimistic and give it to the Knicks. I'm anxious to see how this first game goes. Cross your fingers people! Go Knicks!
