The Knicks continue their home stand tonight, looking to bounce back from their first home loss of the season, against the Nets. This is the first time the Nets will play at MSG since moving to Brooklyn. The Knicks are 1-1 against the Nets this season, with both games being played in Brooklyn. The Knicks lost 96-89 in OT on November 26th and defeated the Nets 100-97 on December 11th.

Carmelo Anthony, as you can see above, after testing out his ankle, will play tonight. It was announced before the game that Steve Novak will sit out tonight with the Flu. Also, Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby are out tonight with foot injuries.
