It’s a cross conference match up on Thursday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Oklahoma City Thunder host the New York Knicks in this one.
The Thunder have won the last three games played between the two teams. One thing to watch is Carmelo Anthony facing off against his old team.
New York Knicks
The plan for this year for the New York Knicks is pretty simple, rebuild and hope they can put together a better team next year.
They traded Carmelo Anthony to the Thunder this off season and besides a couple of pieces, this isn’t much of an NBA roster.
Kristaps Porzingis is the center piece of this team and although he is probable for this game he is dealing with soreness in his hip.
I would expect him to play but how effective he is will be something to watch. If the Knicks want any chance to pull the upset they need him to have a really big game.
To win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. They are going to need some guys to step up and play some defense.
The lower scoring game this is, the better the chance that the Knicks can win this game.
Oklahoma City Thunder
On the other side of this match up is the Oklahoma City Thunder who had quite the busy off season making all kinds of moves to improve this team.
They added Paul George and Carmelo Anthony to this team and if you put him alongside Russell Westbrook that is three legit scorers.
The biggest question for this team is how well they can mesh together. These are three guys who need the ball in their hands and there is only one basketball so how they distribute the ball will be interesting.
To win this game they need to run and push the tempo. The faster and higher paced this game is the better the chance that the Thunder have to win.
This really is a perfect first team for Thunder to play as they ease into the season.
