Game 27: Knicks vs. Magic, 7 p.m.

Knicks MagicTonight, the Knicks travel to Orlando to take on the Orlando Magic. Tipoff is at 7pm. The Knicks are facing a team that might be just as bad if not worse than them. Both teams come into the night with 8 wins and the Magic have 19 losses, one more than the Knicks. Both teams rank in the bottom 4 in the Eastern Conference and will try to turn things around.

This matchup is going to be all about the point guards. Raymond Felton could return for the Knicks while the Magic guards are a tough matchup for any team. Jameer Nelson and rookie Victor Oladipo are averaging a combined 26.3 point per game. With the Knicks struggles defending guards, this could be the key to tonights game.

Tonights starting Knicks lineup is: Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, Andrea Bargnani and Tyson Chandler. Metta World-Peace will not dress.

Looks like a guy to stock the minors with.  .5 ppg but a ton of penalty minutes.  Doesn't seem like a real prospect to me.

Not great stats considering he is an overager but he is tough and a good fighter could be good for the sound tigers.  Garth needs to sign Ahti Oksanen as soon as the NCAA tournament wraps up.

At least he knows what it's like to play for the Islanders.

@slapshot18_rs  from what ive read he is a pretty good skater with a solid slap shot and a pretty quick release on his wristshot.

@Elvis Maduro he had 5 straight bad possessions down the stretch. 

Smith had 2-3 bad possessions.

I'm sure haters would've rather had a loss so they could keep on hating, but I wouldn't be surprised if an ugly W wasn't enough.


Props to JR, he carried us after Melo left, showing that he's the 3rd best player on this team when he's in form. Good to see JR regaining his form on both ends, and hopefully those timely buckets and strong defensive play by Shump serves as a confidence booster. God knows his coach doesn't give him that.

Kudos to Shump for his great defensive plays, and Chandler was all over the place tonight. 


Those 3 kept Woodson with a job for another night.


Not pretty, at all. Horrific breakdown aside, it was good to get a W. I hate to see Woodson still as HC, but I'll take any wins I can take them.

@SportsMeccaNYC @VerySilentJay No Melo in the 2nd, other need to step up, and JR, Shump, and TC were big for the team. 

JR looks to be back in form, which was much needed, and will show people just how important he is.

Anyone who fails to see this didn't see the game.

Melo will need at least 7-10 days rest.

A typical Knicks win, which was almost a typical Knicks loss. 

Drop a 25 point lead and it comes down to fouls and free throws.

All you can do is complain about this team even when they win. 

WTF kind of fun is that?

I coming to hate this team and the organization that maintains it.

Why won't Woodson play Murray? Beno is awful

Man, I was worried Shump's lay-in was going to roll off the rim . . .

Beno on defense is worse than Novak.

Him and Felton have defensive battles in practice.

Woody will play him 30+ mins if he was 0 for 20 with 7 turnovers too.

Felton hurt again. After two straight turnovers, they have got to upgrade the PG position
