History Lesson of the Night
On February 25, 1977 Pistol Pete Maravich dropped 68 on the Knicks here is the video
This is the first of two meetings this year. The Knicks started out very slow (3-9) but have since gone 19-6 and are now 22-15. They are in the middle of a four game West Coast swing, and will be playing their third game in four nights.
Utah is coming of another double digit comeback @ the hands of the Houston Rockets.
Matchup of the Night.
Deron Williams Vs. Raymond Felton this matchup goes back to the 2005 National Championship Game
The game will not be won by the outcome of this matchup, but i think it will be the most fun to watch. The game will be won in the paint and depend on the Amare Vs. Jefferson Matchup. Jefferson will have to have a big night and at the minimum a double double for us to compete in this game. The Utah Jazz bench will also have to make a very strong performance. The Knicks lead the league in ppg @ 107.56 , but also give up 106.3.
Deron and coach Sloan have both been quoted recently saying, "we need to run more". Well nothing will get you running more than a New York Knicks team with the D'Antoni. The Jazz will be forced to run tonight, in fact ,they may get run out of the building. The Jazz will have to start strong to stay within striking distance. The Knicks will give up leads and well, the Utah Jazz can come back so.
Deron had 15 assists against the Rockets the other night, In order for us to win he will have to have 15 or more assists. I think he could end up with over 20.
Jimmy- The Jazz will change everything for me if the can win in a normal fashion. Including his sex.
Craig- Big Al MUST have a bigger defensive game than offensive. The Jazz can't afford to get into a shootout with NY. One last thing...I want the Jazz to draft JIMMER!
Brendan - Amare will go off for a ton(literally 2000 points). The Knicks will score over a 100. I really have a hard time seeing the Jazz score enough to win.
Spencer- Jazz are 6 point favorites and the over under is 211 both seem off to me. I imagine that this is mostly due to the Knicks back-to-back. The optimist in me thinks we win this game @home in a running match. However, the realist in me thinks that we come out flat on 4 days rest and lose by 12 106-98
