(Sports Network) – The Toronto Raptors welcome the New York Knicks to Air
Canada Centre tonight for an Atlantic Division battle. These two teams meet
again at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.
Last season New York took three of its four matchups with the Raptors and has
beaten them in 10 of the last 12 meetings. The Knicks have also had recent
success in Canada, where they have won three of their last five versus

Washington Wizards on Tuesday. Vince Carter scored 25 points and pulled down
nine rebounds for the Raptors, who have lost six of their last seven.

Alston is the only Raptor this season to score in double figures this season.
On the injury front guard Jalen Rose missed the game with a bruised left thigh
and is a question mark for tonight’s tilt.
