On Tuesday, March 23rd, the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks meet for the second time this season. New Yor won the initial contest on February 12th, 109-91.
The Knicks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 172 wins in 306 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with the Wizards winning three of the four contests.
As per John Schuhmann, the stats for Russell Westbrook may look tantalizing but the Wizards tend to perform better in many areas when he’s off the court.
The two areas that stand out are the Wizards are both better offensively and rebounding when Russ sits despite his 10.2 assists and 9.7 rebounds. This gives credence to the analysts who cite using stats with the full picture.
Although Westbrook can change a game in many different ways, the evidence proves he can equally have a negative impact.
Also of note, the Brodie is set to make Wizards franchise history despite spending less than a season in Washington. That benchmark will occur when Westbrook collects his next triple-double.
He currently has 14 (league-high this season) and 15 will put him in the Wizards record books.
New York Knicks
In the last eight games, the Knicks are 3-5. As the narrator predicted when the second half schedule came out this was fully expected. The five losses occurred versus the Spurs, Bucks, Nets, and 76ers twice. All current playoff seeds.
It’s not that the Knicks are fool’s gold. Rather, that they don’t have enough depth or offensive punch to take the next step. That should also be expected as they develop the young talents.
RJ Barrett is putting up solid sophomore production of 17.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.0 assists. Rookie Immanuel Quickly is also gaining the trust of Tom Thibodeau as the season progresses.
But for the most part, Thibs relies on his vets giving them ample playing time and the stellar defense. Leon Rose is in a bit of a pinch as the team from the Mecca is finally on the precipice of returning to the postseason but the smart choice would be to keep the salary sheet fluid for the offseason and make the slow build back with a strong core.
If the rumors are to be believed, however, the Knicks are looking to be active at the trade deadline Thursday. Hopefully, that doesn’t equate to sacrificing now just to make it one extra round in the playoffs.
The Knicks got some good news as Mitchell Robinson (fractured hand) is probable to return Tuesday.
Elfrid Payton (hamstring), is questionable, Immanuel Quickley (ankle) is probable, and Austin Rivers (health and safety protocols) is out.
