The Knicks play the Wizards in D.C.
Good evening! It's almost game time, and we have a bit of news:
James White will start in place of Kidd tonight.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) March 1, 2013
Interesting. Match-up wise, I imagine White will take Martell Webster and Iman Shumpert will take either John Wall or Bradley Beal (leaving the other to light up Raymond Felton. Why the change? It's not just the shooting slump, or at least that's what Woodson says:
Woodson said he wants to put Kidd as the primary ball handler more often, & that bringing him off the bench accomplishes that— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) March 1, 2013
That's a little weird and I wonder if it marginalizes Pablo Prigioni somehow. I hope not. We'll see. No word on Nene yet, incidentally. At least not that I've seen.
