Zagsblog: Melo, Knicks Facing Must-Win in Game 2

By Adam Zagoria

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Carmelo Anthony and his teammates know they are facing a must-win in Game 2 Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden or they could go back to Indiana down 0-2.

“We don’t want to do that, we don’t want to do that,” Anthony said Monday at practice. “We want to take care of business here on our court. We feel like we gave them a game yesterday, which we did. And we’ll redeem ourself tomorrow.”

Anthony said his injured left shoulder was “fine” and downplayed attention to his declining shot production.

Two quick observations on a cold morning...


Kevin Poulin has now started more game this season than Evgeni Nabokov.  Getting old isn't for sissies...


Arthur Staple reports that while Garth Snow is talking to Thomas Vanek's agent, he is not talking to Andrew MacDonald's agent.  He speculates that the asking price on MacDonald is about $5 million a year.  That's a pretty steep price for his services and I suspect a trade is looming before the deadline...

Hey I could see grabner end up as a major stud on the pk. Maybe he won't score 30 again. Maybe he will. But his speed is so value able that he may score a deciding goal one day because of it. Sort of like anders kallur

@REDSpointofviewDid not hear that the asking price for Amac is $5mil. Are you kidding me? I am sure a GM that does nor know him well enough will pay. Philly bound?they are crazy enough to do it and they know him.

@dimaio34I'm starting to see him more as an enigma.  He just can't seem to finish.  I like his speed and his D, but if he can't finish should he really be on the 2nd line?  I know there aren't many other options right now, but I can't see him turning it around.  Just when you think he is coming out of it, he goes into a slump again.

@Don22@dimaio34He is one guy that may need to see a psychologist ,it looks like his legs move faster than his brain . Kind of impossible, as you said an enigma.

@mrcisback  Spread the word.  We have to get section 329 to do this!

Problem is who takes all the minutes he's been getting? 


Don't get me wrong, I don't think they'd be losing Stefan Persson in his prime, but someone has to take those minutes. 


AMac for all the abuse/furor he receives here, ain't that bad. He is miscast, but he is definitely a serviceable, professional d man.

@shlo@Don22@dimaio34 Exactly. Think he's moving too fast for him to do anything once he gets to the goal. Maybe once he knows he's in the clear downshift a gear and give himself an extra second to figure out what to do.
