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
