    Knicks have been playing some pretty inspired basketball as of late and I don't see that changing tonight against us. Get ready for a tough one tonight fellas because beating the Knicks ain't going to be tough.

    It'll be interesting to see who the Knicks choose to defend Chris Bosh with. I think Wilson Chandler + Jared Jeffries would be most effective but I expect they'll put David Lee on him. Need to keep Lee near the glass to get some rebounds.

    If it's Lee, then Bosh should have a huge offensive night because there's no way that Lee can defend Bosh.

    I think Bosh goes nuts tonight with all the media and fan attention. Jack looks like he found his game late in Indiana. Raps by 5.

    Gurk you've been sayin the exact same thing for like the past 10 games! No faith in the Dinos any more homie? I don't know about losing BIG- but unfortunately I gotta agree and say the Dinos will lose this one.

    I think Bosh will have a so-so night, while Bargs will put up big numbers. Should be an entertaining game.

    You just knew DeRozan was going to jack a stupid shot after he pulled down a defensive rebound + dribbled the ball upcourt.

    The "I'm not involved in the offense and have a chance to jack up a shot" shot

    Good start from the Raptors. They lead 14-3 after almost four minutes

    I really like that theatre lighting they use at MSG. wish they'd do that at the ACC.

    Knicks shooting themselves in the foot by doubling Bosh in the post

    Nice shot fake, drive and dunk from Bargnani. He's giving the Knicks all types of problems offensively.

    Nice response from the Raptors after the loss in Indiana. They came out with a purpose tonight, great effort.

    I'm thinking (of course) about the last game Raps played at MSG last year ...

    I thought they looked great for that first half in Indiana. maybe ... they learned a lesson there. (we'll see)

    Knicks defense has been very poor.

    Raptors defense has been good-to-very good.

    Raptors lead 53-26 with seven minutes to go in the first half. This game is pretty much over.

    Man, is Amir ever playing some great defense, not to mention rebounding. That block on Lee just prior to halftime was ridiculous.

    Total domination and control during this first half. We better not let up or I'll blow a gasket.

    My only concern with the abundance of three's we've taken is that if we miss them I've noticed we've had no one outside of Bosh under the boards for the offensive rebound and second chance. We have to get another person in the post to help Chris (or whomever, just need 2 bodies) out because if we miss those three's we're only handing the defensive boards to the Knicks on a silver platter allowing them back in the game. Gotta be smarter with small things like that in order to maintain our lead.
