New York Knicks Form


New York went 4-0 in preseason and opened their 2021/22 season with a win on Wednesday.

The Knicks went to double overtime with Boston before finally securing a 138-134 win at MSG.

Julian Randle led the way with 35 points, nine assists and eight total rebounds.

Evan Fournier, signed from the Celtics in August, racked up 32 points and shot the go-ahead basket in the second OT period.

Mitchell Robinson impressed after being thrust into the starting five due to absences. He produced a dominant performance in the paint, racking up 17 total rebounds.

Taj Gibson missed the matchup due to the birth of his child and may not travel to Orlando. Nerlens Noel is dealing with a knee injury and his status is not yet known.

Orlando Magic Form


Orlando entered rebuild mode when the traded away Nicola Vucevic and Evan Fournier earlier this year.

And if their season-opening loss to San Antonio is anything to go by, they face a long and bumpy ride back to relevance.

The youthful Magic were blown out 123-97 by the Spurs on Wednesday night.

No player hit the 20-point barrier and no player managed to hit double digits for rebounds or assists on a miserable night.

Mo Bamba led the way in scoring with 18 points, while Terrence Ross contributed 15 off the bench.

Wendell Carter Jr led the team in rebounds with eight boards, while Bamba and Cole Anthony provided four assists each.

Verdict

New York made hard work of their win over Boston but should have no such issues against an Orlando team set for another season of struggle.

Former Orlando man Fournier could play a starring role as the Knicks down his old team.
