The Toronto Raptors ended 2021 with a bang, coming from behind to take down the Clippers at home. The latest Raptors odds seem to hint at the possibility of starting strong in 2022, as they will have a home game against a division rival next on the schedule.
The Raptors will take on a banged-up New York Knicks squad. Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson are in the health and safety protocols, and Kemba Walker has already been ruled out due to an injury. The Raptors are starting to get most of their big names back in the rotation.
With Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and OG Anunoby all topping 25 points without Scottie Barnes in the Clippers win. With Toronto on the fringe of a play-in birth, Nick Nurse will do everything he can to make sure this team ends up in the postseason once again.
Will some of the bad mojo from 2021 hang around this team? Will they reverse those 2021 trends and start 2022 off with a victory against one of their most hated rivals?

Toronto Raptors vs New York Knicks Prediction
The Knicks will put up a fight, even without Randle. Their bench has been one of the silver linings in a slightly disappointing season, and they could be in for some increased run in this game against Toronto.
However, Toronto appears to be getting back to full strength thanks to most of their starters and key reserves returning. If they can produce while showing minimal ill effects from their extended absence, the squad could pick up the win.
Raptors 111, Knicks 106
