New York Knicks vs Toronto Raptors

April 9, 2014

TSN2 - 7:00 PM EST

This could be it.

The Toronto Raptors could clinch the Atlantic Division title with a win tonight over the New York Knicks.

Of course, a loss by the Brooklyn Nets tonight, they play the Atlanta Hawks, will also do the trick.

But let's focus on the Knicks, a club who are essentially two losses away from the vast oblivion known as "The NBA Draft Lottery." The Knicks' playoff hopes have been kept alive thanks to a late-season run and frankly, I can see them taking this one tonight. Toronto's defence hasn't exactly been stellar of late, and the Knicks sit only a shade behind the Dinos in terms of offensive efficiency on the season.

The Knicks can score.

They just can't defend.

Up until recently, the Raptors could do both but indeed, of late they've been much more "Knicksish."

So we'll see tonight if Toronto locks things down, both on D, and in terms of a division title, or if JR Smith takes 43 three-pointers en route to a New York win.

GO RAPS!
