Man, I'm excited for this one. My hometown eastern conference boys, vs. the Grizz. Finally I get to watch a game on TV instead of the computer, haha! I hope we kick the crap out of everyone's new favorite team.
The biggest thing here, is we can't let Amar'e get his jump shot going. If there's any team I've watched more than the Grizz this year, it's the Knicks... although admittedly I've been a bit turned off by them after the Melo trade and have only seen 2 games since. Anyway, they really seem to get rolling when Amar'e's raining from the iso-mid-range game. If we can keep that in check (maybe play a lot of DA on him), I like our chances. I'm not worried about Melo at all. TA and Shane should be able to get in his head early on. Offensively we just need to pound them. Marc. Zach. They have absolutely no answer for that. No defense inside. Zbo should go for 20-20 again. One other huge caveat I have about this game is to watch the freakin 3-line! We generally suck at closing out of 3 shooters, and the Knicks all love to camp out there.
