The Knicks continue their homestand against the crosstown rival Nets today at MSG at 2:30pm.
MLK Day games are a staple for any New Yorker and the Knicks need to bounce back from demoralizing losses against the Pacers and Clippers and snap the team’s current three game skid.
The Knicks’ projected lineup: Melo, Bargnani, Chandler, Felton, Shump.
The Nets’ projected lineup: Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Alan Anderson, Shaun Livingston.
On the injury front, Pablo Prigioni is listed as questionable, while the team is sure to be without Kenyon Martin and Amar’e Stoudermire.
For the Nets, Deron Williams is listed as a game time decision. If he can go, he is likely to slide into Livingston’s spot in the starting lineup.
