New York Knicks vs Toronto Raptors: Preview & Picks 01/06/2023

January 6, 2023


Game Preview

This 2023 is off to a great start, full of exciting NBA games and this Friday night will be no exception. The Toronto Raptors will welcome the New York Knicks to face off at Scotiabank Arena at 7:40 PM EST.

The Knicks come to Toronto after defeating San Antonio 117-114 for their third straight win, while our hosts the Raptors come into this game after a heartbreaking loss to Milwaukee 104-101 in OT.

The truth is that the Raptors are having a pretty bad season compared to what they are used to, it was expected that with this start of the year things would change but unfortunately it was not so, as they lost their first two games of 2023 against the Pacers and the Bucks.

You could say that their most recent game was a sad loss as they gave it their all until OT and could have tied but unfortunately it was not the case. Their offense was led by Fred VanVleet and his 28 points and 12 assists, accompanied by O.G. Anunoby with 9 rebounds.

The Knicks will be looking for their fourth straight win in this game and improve their current record (21-18), they had a good start in 2023 beating first Houston on the night of the 31st, Phoenix on Monday the 2nd and San Antonio last Wednesday.

They are playing very well and have a good amount of good players on the roster, the offense is led by Julius Randle and his 24.2 per game, followed by Jalen Brunson with 20.8 and RJ Barrett with another 19.7.

I see things complicated for the Raptors but what I don’t understand is why? They have too much talent to have the balance they have, however the Knicks are doing very well. I would like to root for the Raptors because I trust them but I honestly believe that this game will not be the time for them to win.
