Minnesota

NY-Knicks
The New York Knicks will be extremely disappointed to come extremely close after being down by almost 20 at one point against the Bucks, before losing by 4 in the end. The Knicks will be extremely happy for a couple of reasons from their performances last night with the likes of Shumpert (21 points, 8 boards and 8 assists), Tim Hardaway Jr (24 points) and Amar'e Stoudemire (14 points, 5 boards and 4 assists) all giving a strong helping hand to Anthony who had 26 points himself to a good performance.

 

The Knicks will feel that the team is finally settling down, and improved their play. Despite losing, their margin of defeat has been smaller, less than 5 points in their last few losses. They have seen improved shot taking and their field goal percentage was a good 55% last night and even going 44% from down town.

 

The Wolves have numerous injuries to contend with, which might see too many players play a lot of minutes. With Thaddeus Young (personal Reasons) and Nikola Pekovic, Turiaf out with injuries, its added the burden on 3 players young Bennett, Dieng and Mohammad; with 2 of them to be on the floor at anytime. Ricky Rubio's injury means that young Zach LaVine has started at the point, but that is something that hasn't proven to be effective till now. Kevin Martin will have to shoulder bulk of the scoring load; but with Iman Shumpert guarding him, it might not be as easy as he is a good defender on the perimeter.

 

This game will run close; I am taking a few points on Knicks but I still expect them to win against the struggling Wolves outfit.
