5. New York Knicks vs. Toronto Raptors – Fri, Nov. 17
Player to watch: Kristaps Porzingis (Knicks)
The Knicks have been playing far better than they have in years, and all of New York City is excited about the start that Porzingis has had. The young star has put himself into the MVP conversation, and has continued to prove that he’s a franchise player. Porzingis is averaging 29.5 points per game, and has the Knicks eyeing a playoff spot this season. Adding another fun note to this game: The matchup has some international flavor, as it features a season-high six Basketball Without Borders alumni. Those players include Willy Hernangomez (Knicks; Spain; BWB Europe 2011), Frank Ntilikina (Knicks; France; BWB Europe 2015, BWB Global 2016), Enes Kanter (Knicks; Turkey; BWB Turkey 2008), Jonas Valanciunas (Raptors; Lithuania; BWB Europe 2008), Pascal Siakam (Raptors; Cameroon; BWB Africa 2012), and Bruno Caboclo (Raptors; Brazil; BWB Americas 2013).
