Raptors vs. Knicks: How to Watch, Live Stream, & Odds for Thursday's Game

It might not exactly be a must-win game for the Toronto Raptors (0-3) taking on the New York Knicks (2-2) on New Year's Eve, but it's pretty close.

The Raptors have built up double-digit leads in all three games they've played this season only to see them squandered when the offence has stagnated. They're the first team in the last 20 years to drop to 0-3 despite having double-digit leads in all three games, according to ESPN.

So far this season those lulls have come while Kyle Lowry has been on the bench. The team is plus-14 with Lowry on the floor and minus-40 in the 33 minutes he's sat this season. That's an issue they're going to have to figure out soon, not just because it's unsustainable this year, but also because counting on a 34-year-old on the final year of his contract is not a good plan for the future.

Against New York, the Raptors will have to stop a young, still-developing group led by Canadian RJ Barrett and Julius Randle. The Knicks are riding a two-game winning streak after knocking off the Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers. They're a team that's going to look to score in the paint and it'll be up to Toronto's new bigs to deter the Knicks inside scoring.
