  • Game 55 - Toronto Raptors 122 - New York Knickerbockers 95

    Notes:

    -per AP
    • Toronto avoided its first three-game losing streak since Nov. 15-18 with its 15th victory in 18 games. DeRozan scored 21 in the team's first home game since Jan. 30 and Jonas Valanciunas had his second straight double-double with 10 points and 12 boards.
    • "Everyone's knees were bent, down in the stance, ready to play and out of the vacation mode I think," coach Dwane Casey said. "I think the whole league has to get used to that long week of time off and get back into game shape, get the sea legs back, get the mentality back."
    • The Knicks (24-33) hit at a 50.6 percent clip Saturday to snap a season-high seven-game losing streak with a 103-95 win at Minnesota. Carmelo Anthony led the way with 30 points and Robin Lopez matched season highs with 26 points and 16 rebounds.
    • Anthony's sore knee seems to be improving as the All-Star forward is averaging 28.3 points and 10.3 rebounds while playing at least 37 minutes in the last three games. He's played well when he's been able to go against Toronto, scoring 30.6 per game over his last seven meetings.
    • Most importantly, a Raps win coupled with a Bucks win would push the Knuggets pick into a coin flip for 8th overall!

          We've dropped, what, three different draft-pick games so far, out of 4? Have to crush the Knicks the rest of the way.

            Casey will probably trot out that 2 PG lineup in the 4th and have DeMar guard Melo

                    The pics you use in these game threads are the best, Scraptor. That Porzingis pic has me laughing... I bet that little jerk owns his jersey by now.

                      He's taking a selfie of himself crying. I hate today's youth.

                        It really sums up how I feel about our frontcourt perfectly. Scola even looks a little ashamed of himself haha

                            Yeah, it is the perfect "posing with the coworker that you don't like" photo. JJ's expression can be tied in as well.

                              For the love of god let's help our draft pick instead of sabotaging it once again.
