UPDATE: David West is scratched from the game due to a stomach virus, Jason Smith is his likely replacement.
Just a quick rundown of what we’re going to see today when the New York Knickerbockers face the New Orleans Hornets. Not only do the have the tag-line “new” in their name but the Hornets and Knicks have not much else in common. Last summer the Knicks were hunting for Lebron and Chris Paul while the Hornets were fighting to change their culture and put a stake-hold in the city of New Orleans.
On to the game Joe Gerrity outlines that the teams have juxtaposing paces leading us to wonder who will control the tempo? The Knicks have had recent success against us so I’m not so sure what the likely outcome will be.
On to the matchups here is your greater than less than without reasoning, I lay down the law dawg style.
PG: Chris Paul > Raymond Felton
SG: Marco Belinelli > Larry Fields
SF: Trevor Ariza < Wilson Chandler
David West Jason Smith < Danilo Gallinari
C: Emeka Okafor < Amare Stoudamire
Bench: Hornets > Knicks
There it is folks leave your game day frustrations down the bottom!
