NBA: New York Knicks - Utah Jazz
- Title : NBA: New York Knicks - Utah Jazz
We are a few weeks into the NBA season now and we have had so many entertaining games this season. There have also been a lot of major surprises this season. I am excited to see how the season unfolds and how some teams handle their starts.
There are some injuries in this game that will be a factor in how this one plays out. Utah will be without PF Juwan Morgan who is out with an illness, and could potentially also be without PF Derrick Favors who is probable with a knee injury. New York on the other hand will be without a lot of players: SG Alec Burks, SF Kevin Knox II, C Nerlens Noel, PG Frank Nitilikina, PG Dennis Smith Jr., PF Omari Spellman, and PF Obi Toppin.
New York has struggled this season, just like they have for the past two decades. On defense, they have been playing extremely well. The only reason this squad has been winning is because of their excellent defensive play. If their offense could step up there is a chance they could actually be a pretty decent squad. New York currently only allows opponents to score 105.14 PPG (6th) while only allowing 29.48% from deep (1st).
