Game 18: Knicks vs. Magic, 7:30pm

Knicks vs Magic

Fresh off their win against the spiraling Brooklyn Nets, the New York Knicks (4-13) will take on the Orlando Magic (6-12) at 7:30pm at Madison Square Garden.

The Knicks look to continue what they started last game by hitting three-pointers often and early, then varying their inside-outside attack with their offense centered on Carmelo Anthony swishing or dishing in isolation.

For the Magic, Jameer Nelson and Nik Vucevic had been out for the past few games with injuries. According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Nelson is likely to play tonight while Vucevic will test himself out during warm-ups.

The Knicks starting lineup will be Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin, and Andrea Bargnani. Mike Woodson announced Amar’e Stoudemire will not play since this is the second game of a back-to-back. The Knicks will wear white tonight.

watching Mozgov play and his stats this year - who would have figured that out of the 4 player we traded - he would have turned out to be the best one ??

Bargniani this year


Most improved player of the year   or Comeback player of the year ???

one thing is for certain and this is very Cliche - but we are such a much better team when everyone scores rather then just Melo ISO


Melo ISO - should not take up more then 20-25 percent of our offense....

@akamarb Always thought The Moz had the ability to get it in, just took him some time.

The culture shock really weighed heavy on him as well.

The Don will be in the running for most improved player provided we win.

@akamarb The difference in Melo the last two games is he's actually being a floor general. Which means he's making everyone better.
