The Phoenix Suns come into Madison Square Garden to face the red-hot New York Knicks Monday night at 7:30 p.m. ET.
The Knicks (14-22) have won four straight games and five of their last six. The team has been receiving major contributions from Iman Shumpert and Amare’ Stoudemire off the bench, and look to notch their third victory against a Western Conference opponent against the Suns.
The Suns (21-15) have dropped two in a row and four of their last six game, and are 1-3 on the road in the month of January. The Knicks swept the season series in 2012-13, and the Suns have yet to win in New York City since the 2011-12 season.
Center Tyson Chandler is listed questionable for tonight’s contest after missing the past three games with an upper respiratory illness. As is guard Beno Udrih, who is battling a knee injury that has cost him the last two games.
Projected Starters (NYK): Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin, Andrea Bargnani
Projected Starters (PHX): Gordon Dragic, Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker, Channing Frye, Miles Plumee
Update: Tyson Chandler is out; Beno Udrih will suit up.
