The New York Knicks won’t need a lot of strategy in this game, that one is for sure. Kristaps Porzingis is the leader in total points so far and we believe his performance will have a solid impact in this game against the Washington Wizards.
We also believe that the Knicks will learn to fix their issues and cover up the loopholes effectively enough so that they can have a good start to the season, even if it’s their preseason game we’re talking about.
The Knicks, at least this time, are under quite some pressure. You see, the fans are not letting any mishaps ruin the team’s aims anymore. There is no scope for failure or goof-ups. The team needs to play strong and effective. Yes, this is just the preseason so a little bit of tinkering and experimentation is all cool. But later on, things will be quite serious for the New York Knicks and they will surely need to do something worthwhile about it if they want to keep their audience.
The Washington Wizards are depending on players such as Bradley Beal, Otto Porter Jr., and John Wall to handle the game with the kind of energy and action that can get them through. This preseason game is quite important, actually. The Wizards need to establish them from a very early point in the 2018-19 season. The reason? To have an impact and more importantly, to make a statement.
Their opponents, the New York Knicks, are under no similar obligation and might make things easier for the Washington Wizards. The Knicks are not really a tough opponent if you think about it in certain specific terms.
