Tonight the hot Knicks (13-9) take on the Toronto Raptors (8-13) in a game that can have playoff implications should the Knicks and Raptors need a conference tie breaker. Thus far, the Knicks have beaten the Raptors twice, 98-93 in the first game of the season and 116-99 on December 5th. A win in the Garden tonight will guarantee the Knicks the edge against a Raptor team giving them a edge in the head-to-head wins tiebreaker which applies if they have identical won-lose records. So far that looks like a long shot as the Raptors are on a two game losing streak after getting spanked by the Pacers 124-100 two nights ago. The Raptors do have more talent than there record suggests however. The Knicks more significantly need to add this win to their record to give them a cushion from a treacherous looking schedule up ahead.
We intend to have an LBE tonight, so look out for the Viewer Window to be placed on the website before the game. I hope you can stop by for another fun evening.
