Good evening and happy Valentine's Day, friends! Apologies for a quiet day of posting. I was driving all morning and ranking power all afternoon, but I'm free now and more than ready to watch me some Knicks. Tonight, our Knicks are in Toronto to face the Raptors, who've won just one out of their last five games (though they've been close in most of those losses). Of course, those same Raptors beat the Knicks early in the season, though that was without Amar'e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert (and Jeremy Lin).
This time, the Knicks will be without Carmelo Anthony (and Josh Harrellson. Miss u, Jorts), but they'll be getting Amar'e back after his trip to Florida to mourn the tragic death of his brother. I'm so very happy to have Amar'e back with the Knicks and am wetting my trousers with excitement over the prospect of Lin and Stoudemire running the pick-and-roll. I'm very interested to see if the spacing troubles Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler have had are at all remedied in the first outing with Lin handling the ball. This'll be fun.
The Raptors, I should mention, are without Andrea Bargnani, which means 1. He can't torch the Knicks. 2. We don't get to hear Clyde say "Barn-yar-ni" quite as much. It's a win and a loss.
This here's your thread to comment, and don't forget to check out Raptors HQ as well. As always, please refrain from posting photos, .gifs, illegal streams, and videos of iguana musicals in the thread. Tip-off's at 7. See you then!
