The New York Knicks will do everything in their power this Saturday, to defend home court and take another step towards their goal of making the playoffs and given the matchup on paper, they should have a great chance of doing just that.
The Raptors will not make things easy on them though, as the Raptors have put together a nice little winning streak for themselves winning their last 4 games on the trot which included an impressive victory over the Brooklyn Nets last time out.
The Raptors back court was not overly impressive in that win over the Nets with Lowry and VanVleet both having sub par games, but the front court more than made up for it as OG and Siakam combined for 52 points and both of those guys did excellent on the defensive side of the floor.
Toronto is in full on rebuilding mode at this point though, and you feel like they got the Nets at the right time and two of their wins before their last game came against the Magic and Thunder who have both packed it in, so it will be interesting to see if, and how they can compete against what should be a highly motivated Knicks team.
New York Knicks
It is tough to really believe in this team just based off of the fact that it’s the Knicks, and we all know how this story ends, but their recent 9 game winning streak has plenty of Knicks fans thinking this could be the year they make a Cinderella type run in the playoffs.
There last game was especially impressive, as it came against the Hawks who are also crushing as of late in what turned out to be an absolute shootout, with that contest ending 137-127 in favor of the Knicks.
Julius Randle, as he has done too many times to count this year, was the hero for the Knicks, putting up 40 points and a double double with 11 rebounds and a respectable 6 assists, as he just went to work on the interior.
Another guy we could be hearing more and more from if the Knicks make the playoffs is D-Rose off of the bench, as he is the type of veteran who has plenty of playoff experience and he just chipped in with 20 points off of the bench in that Hawks win.
Free Toronto Raptors vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
The Raptors should be respected in this spot, as they can cause an upset, but I think the Knicks bring far too much to the table and can see the Knicks really pull away come the end of the 3rd quarter.
The Raptors are not a super high scoring, high tempo type of team, and that type of game style suits the Knicks perfectly, as the main reason they are where they are right now is their defense and if they are allowed to consistently get back and into their defense for the vast majority of the possessions it is tough to see the Raptors scoring enough to keep up.
