The New York Knicks (16-16) will host the New Jersey Nets (9-24) tonight in what will be their fourth consecutive home game. Before losing to Milwaukee at home last night (85-92), the Nets stole won on the road beating the Chicago Bulls 97-85. The Nets are a struggling team, but they’ve shown some confidence as of late. With Brook Lopez making his season debut last night, the Nets could be a different team than the Knicks saw 2 weeks ago.
For the Knicks, the big story is Carmelo Anthony. He will return to the line-up tonight after missing 7 games with a groin injury. After weeks of speculation that Carmelo will ruin the chemistry of the team, tonight we will get to see for ourselves. The Knicks have won 8 of their last 9 games, coming off of a great one vs. the Dallas Mavericks, ending their six-game win streak. Look for the Knicks to come out tonight and make a statement.
Let’s not forget where Linsanity all began.. MORE
