Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 9.27.31 AM

 

Friday night at 7:30 p.m. the New York Knicks look to continue their momentum with a second straight victory when they host the Utah Jazz at Madison Square Garden.

The Knicks (22-40) have won their past four meetings with the Jazz, including the last three in New York City. This will be the first of two games these two teams play this season, as New York will travel out to Utah at the end of the month. Entering Friday night’s action, the Knicks sit 5.5 games back of the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 8 seed in the East.

Despite the comparable record, the Jazz (21-40) are all but eliminated from playoff contention. The team is 3-10 against Eastern Conference opponents on the road this season an have lost their past four road contests overall. During its current four-game losing streak, Utah’s margin of defeat has been 15.5 points.

Projected Starters (NYK): Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony, Amare’ Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler

Projected Starters (UTAH): Trey Burke, Gordon Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams, Derrick Favors

@Kvdaone LOL when guys make their shots we win..melo plays the same every game...guys miss em we lose, they make em we in..its simple..melo plays the same game night in night out.

With the exception of when he goes to those one on one battles...that's a no no.

MeloStat301

@Kvdaone Nah...its because guys are making shots that's the only reason the assists go up..he always passes the same...it depends if guys make the shots or not..pretty simple.

Or because JR hits his threes rather than him or Ray or Shump clanking.

@MeloStat301 @Kvdaone youre gonna miss shots in the game but if your teammates have a rhythm, shots will eventually fall. if they watch u ball for the whole game, their confidence slips and they wont be ready for any pass bcuz they werent expecting it

Kvdaone

@MeloStat301 @Kvdaone its not just about makin shots. is about having rhythm. on the avg Melo only passes when his option to score doesnt exist. Hes not always lookin to set up but these last few games he playin ball like an allstar wing wing man
