Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks tip off tonight against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center at 7 PM EST, and amazing John Wall’s squad is favored (-2.5) which I’m not used to seeing as a DC fan.

Imam Shumpert does not seem to be gelling with head coach Mike Woodson, and the guard’s foul on Paul George cost the Knicks badly in their latest bout.

“Iman being a young player, Woodson said after the game. “It was just a foul that we didn’t need at that particular time.”

The Wizards have started to build a little momentum after a slow start, but Bradley Beal has looked impressive in the early season. The guard combination of Beal and Wall is something the Wizards can really build on although hoping that Ernie Grunfeld loses his job any day now. Not going to hold my breath on that one, but he has done a truly horrendous job that has been bailed out of late by Wall’s and Beal’s collective play so far. They should be able to get a win at home in this one though, and take another step towards making it into the Eastern Conference playoffs. That by the way appears to be slipping out of the Knicks’ reach as we speak.

Here is the TV info on that one.

TV: MSG, CSN-DC, DTV: 634, 642, 755, 756
