Pre-Game News and Notes
Washington Wizards vs. New York Knicks
The Knicks will look to not only extend their 12-game winning streak tonight against the Wizards at Madison Square Garden, but also lock up the division title for the first time since 1993-1994. The Knicks magic number sits at one currently, meaning their next win or Nets loss will give the Knicks the Atlantic Division title. It has been so long since the Knicks won the Atlantic Division that two teams no longer residing in the division, the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic, have won it more times than the Knicks. This will be the fourth and final meeting between the Knicks and Wizards this season, with the Knicks winning two of the first three matchups but the Wizards giving them some serious problems in the last two meetings. Here are some things to look for the Knicks to continue their win streak and lock up the Atlantic Division.
