    GT#36 Muy Increžble Knicks (18-17) @ San Antonio Spurs (17-13): Boogie Time


    Like Brockhampton, the Spurs will bring the boogie but can the Knicks take advantage of a depleted team reeling after an overtime loss on the night before?

    Random Thoughts:

    1. Remember the Nets: Last night James Harden looking like El Presidente Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna took the Alamo in overtime. The Nets backcourt (Irving & Harden) ultimately overwhelmed the Spurs. Now the Spurs face a confident, surging Knicks team. New York has an opportunity to take care of a depleted, tired Spurs team.

    2. A Rose like no other: Derrick Rose is 3-0 as a starter but his minutes should be monitored. Knicks will need another noteworthy performance from Frank Ntilikina & Immanuel Quickley.

    3. Demar Derozan lives: Playing well under Coach Greg Popovich. RJ Barrett will need a Swiss Army knife worth of tools to keep him human.

    4. The Juice is worth the Squeeze: Knicks need more production from Obi Toppin & Kevin Knox. Not sure how or where you play them but they gotta produce. The Knicks bench is really important especially when the starters struggle in the 3rd.

    5. Are the Spurs Back: Took a couple seasons but the Spurs are retooled and in possession of the division and 6th seed in the West but Dallas Mavericks are hot on their tail.

    The Knicks must stay aggressive if they hope to take out Spurs and remain above .500.

    Letís go Knicks!

    Derozan vs RJ should be fun

    Mills vs IQ should be fun

    Murray vs Rose should be fun

    Walker vs Bullocks good match

    Randle could feast against Lyles

    Noel vs Poeltl, nice match

    Obi should play against the 15 or so minutes old man aldridge gets

    Time for Knox to come out and play because I don't think Semanic will give him fits

    Diops vs Burks another match Burks can come on top

    SA on a back to back with DeRozan playing 42 min and Poeltl playing 36 and Murray 37 and Walker 37 and even Mills got in 31.

    Time for Frank to make a statement or at least give a good audition for Pops.

    I never fully realized how these phantom injuries work, but after hearing Porzingis talk about his injury during the trade talks, where he felt fine but the trainers kept telling him he wasn't ready yet, wouldn't be surprised if we're doing something like that with Payton to give this new rotation an extended look.

    In a perfect world Payton quietly goes situational. I think we need a depth piece because of Rose's injury history. If Payton will accept a 3rd string role I think that's the best case for us.

    Payton needs to accept a G league role

    This is going to be a tough matchup IMHO. Hope we win but I think the Spurs will come out hungry after losing yesterday and will be tough

    Nets anti-Knick conspiracy in play. Fold to the Mavs then piss off the Spurs for us.

    On the bright side they have no one to guard Randle

    Situational might be one of the best things to come out of this season
