💕

On Monday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder will take on the struggling Knicks in New York. Sliding down the standings, New York watched the playoffs as the 12th seed from the outside.

Although the Knicks struggled, RJ Barrett is blooming into a star.At this point, he is taking over as the face of the team, replacing Julius Randall Who’s been looking suspicious on and off the court lately.

While New York’s defense is league average, it’s the offense that holds the team back. So far this season, the Knicks are seventh in the league in offensive rating (108.3).

The Thunder’s defense is in the top 10 in the league, which could pose a problem for the Knicks. If OKC can lock down key players on New York’s roster, things could get interesting.between Ludot and Darius Bazleythe Thunder have personal defensive weapons to achieve this.

The player to watch in this game is the Thunder rookie Josh Giddywho had a triple-double in this game.
