Playing the second of a back-to-back, the Knicks hope to win their third straight as they battle the Raptors.

Led by Scottie Barnes (19.1 PPG, 9.1 RPG, and 5.5 APG) and Pascal Siakam (19.9 PPG, 7.1 RPG, and 5.1 APG), the Toronto Raptors (9-10) are a tough defensive squad. Tonight, they welcome the New York Knicks (11-7), who played last night at home against the Detroit Pistons. The Knicks’ starters had to close the game to finish off the Pistons, so fatigue could be an obstacle tonight. And if Julius Randle (Questionable) sits with knee inflammation . . . the outlook is even less favorable for our heroes.

Both teams excel at defense and rebounding, but New York is the superior shooting club (from long-range, at least). Should be a busy night for elbows. Tip off is 7:30 p.m. EST on MSG Network.
