The Spurs beat the Knicks in the first NBA Finals after Michael Jordan retired for the first time following his sixth championship.
It was just the start for the Spurs. The Knicks, however, since then have not been close to reaching the pinnacle of the NBA.
They’ll meet at Madison Square Garden on Saturday as two of the worst teams in the first month of the NBA season.
San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio started well but has won just twice since October 28.
The Spurs are in Philly on Friday night and carry the burden of a seven-game losing streak. If they can’t snap it against the Sixers, they will get another try the next night in this game, their second back-to-back spot of the season. They lost both in the first, on the road against the Magic and then back at home against the Blazers.
Derrick White missed the team’s last game and is questionable for Friday night’s matchup but otherwise the Spurs have been healthy so I’ve been surprised with all that’s gone wrong.
San Antonio just isn’t defending, as evidenced in its 138–132 loss in Washington the last time out. This team has balance and it has some decent offensive players but if it isn’t a unit that wins with defense, it won’t win much.
That starts with Dejounte Murray, who has lost his starting job. He played twenty minutes off the bench against the Wizards and shot the ball well (7/11) but still finished -21.
New York Knicks
At 4–11 the Knicks are at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Unlike the Spurs, this game will be the first of two in two nights; the Nets will come over to the Garden on Sunday.
New York has beaten Chicago, Cleveland, and Dallas twice. It has lost close games to the Celtics, Hornets and 76ers.
Marcus Morris is the team’s leading scorer, which tells you a lot of what you may need to know. He’s scoring just under nineteen points per game but scoring at just over a forty percent clip from the floor.
He actually only shoots thirty-seven percent from inside the three-point line, which is just dreadful. Once he cools off from three (he’s shooting over forty-six percent at the moment), he won’t be the leading scorer anymore and if he is, the Knicks will be worse than they are now.
Julius Randle is the best scorer but he’s shooting too many threes and, unlike Morris, bricking way too many. He’s shooting an ugly twenty-six percent on nearly four attempts per game.
