The first-place Knicks (5-1) will host the Raptors (4-3) on Monday night
The New York Knicks hit the ground running this season. Outside of one stinker against the Orlando Magic, the Knicks have looked like a well-oiled machine. The defensive numbers are slightly down from last season, but they are making up for it on the offensive end.
The Raptors, on the other hand, are a team that still doesn’t have its full team. Pascal Siakam is still recovering from offseason surgery and now it looks like rookie Scottie Barnes will miss Monday’s game.
The Knicks can extend their winning streak to four games with a win against this shorthanded roster. Let’s take a closer look at the broadcast information, odds, injury report, and projected starting lineups.
