Knicks:As the grind of the season wears on them and the chance to even play significant games in April having been lost in a 1-15 start to the regular season, the Raptors are going to enjoy a rare situation this weekend.Three days off.After playing nine games in 15 days, Toronto gets a three-day break between Friday's game against Milwaukee and a Tuesday night day in New York.
Stephon Marbury is tired of landing on the back page.The personality conflict with Knicks coach Larry Brown isn't going away. And there was more controversy when the moody playmaker suggested running a play for Jamal Crawford in the final seconds of a win over Detroit on Friday.Not until a lengthy explanation was offered 48 hours later did the story fizzle."I was out of the game for 11 minutes," Marbury said.
