1 Looking for Revenge

Kristaps Porzingis talks about his recent play and Wednesday's rematch against the Raptors.

Tonight’s matchup between the Knicks and Raptors will be the second game between the two teams this season. The last time the two teams met, the Knicks were held to a season-low 33 percent shooting from the field in a 107-84 loss in Toronto back last Friday.

“We want to get our revenge,” Kristaps Porzingis said Tuesday. “[The Raptors] played great at home, we played bad and it’s going to be an opportunity for us tomorrow.”

2 Slump Busting

The Knicks have lost their last eight games against the Raptors and haven’t beaten Toronto since Nov. 10, 2015. Their last win at The Garden against Toronto came on Feb. 28, 2015.

3 Teaching Them How to Dougie

Doug McDermott has proven to be a valuable piece off the bench for Jeff Hornacek this season. The 11th pick overall in the 2014 NBA Draft scored 16 points in Monday’s win over the Clippers and shot 5-for-7 from three-point range.

4 Compton's Finest

DeMar DeRozan has been on fire of late, averaging 26.1 points per game in the month of November. The Compton, California native scored a game-high 33 points in Toronto’s win Sunday over Washington and scored 22 points in the Raptors’ win over the Knicks last Friday.
