New York Knicks preview

The New York Knicks showed immense character and grit in their first game of the season against the Boston Celtics, fighting until overtime despite a strong showing from Jaylen Brown. Julius Randle and offseason acquisition Evan Fournier performed phenomenally, while RJ Barrett contributed 19 points and five rebounds.

The Knicks were ordered from the field, shooting 48% overall and 38% of their attempts from deep. Head coach Tom Thibodeau will want his team to show similar efficiency against the Orlando Magic, who have a weak defense on paper.

Orlando Magic Preview

The Orlando Magic put on a terrible offensive performance against the San Antonio Spurs as no player managed to score more than 18 points. The Magic lack the presence of Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic at both ends of the court. It’s pretty clear that they will need a few seasons to consolidate and build a team that can make the playoffs.

Shooting efficiency and ball movement were major problems in the Spurs game, and head coach Jamahl Moseley will have to come up with some tactical adjustments to fix them.

Knicks vs Magic match prediction

The Knicks look like the superior team by some distance, and Tom Thibodeau’s team should be able to dominate this matchup from the start. The Orlando Magic have an inexperienced team with a disappointing veteran presence, and the Knicks are our pick for Friday’s game. Fans can expect Julius Randle and Evan Fournier to have great games.
