On the other hand, the Knicks have a number of decent options at Center. Let’s see what head-coach Unseld Jr. will come up with to counter that. I have a feeling Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau will abuse the Wiz in the paint.

Kuzma hits another game-winner — Kuzma does that from time to time. Expect him to hoist up shots and crank up his usage even more for this post-game-winner game.
