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.
