Tip-Off: 7:30 PM @ Izod Center, East Rutherford
The Knickerbockers are looking for their first three-game winning streak of the season tonight against the Nets. And, all the numbers are against them. First of all, the team hasn't strung together three wins all year long. Secondly, the Nets have dominated the Knicks since Kidd surfaced in the swamp. And, last but not least, this is technically a road game and such games have not been the team's forte.
All of that being said, this is a winnable game. If the team puts forth the sort of cogent effort that they did last night and scores with nearly as much efficiency then they can put together a legitimate STREAK. The Nets are struggling this season and have been saved from the tri-state area's scorn only be the debacle across the Hudson.
Of course, the Knicks could be satisfied with their two wins and come out flat against a team that they've already beaten. If December was any indicator that is how it will play out.
