Knicks won't have Kristaps Porzingis for Melo's return

Kristaps Porzingis Injury Update: Knee Improving, Star Questionable vs. Thunder

And what of the reception for Anthony, who led the Knicks to three straight playoff appearances after arriving in 2011, led the league in scoring when they won 54 games and a division championship in 2013, and always made it clear that he loved NY and didn't want to go? "Emotional as far as excited being back on that court", Anthony said on the eve of the game, via ESPN. "Sometimes as players you're sore, certain movements doctors will say that's nothing", Hornacek said of Porzingis testing the knee beforehand.

After escaping Philadelphia with a triple overtime win Saturday, the Thunder flew to NY overnight to prepare for the Knicks. The match is being billed as Carmelo Anthony's first appearance in NY since being traded to Oklahoma City ahead of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season. Anthony said. "I became entrenched into not just the Knicks, but the city as a whole". "But without him this year I've had more of an opportunity". NY extended its winning streak to a season best three-games as it rolled to a 111-104 victory over its divisional rivals, the Brooklyn Nets, 111-104 at the Barclays Center on a Thursday night.

When he agreed to waive his no-trade clause to join league MVP Russell Westbrook and George, most believed the Thunder formed a super team that could challenge the Warriors in the West. I want to win because we have a chance to sweep this road trip. "I think that change sometimes is hard". He hopes the NY fans remember him fondly.

For the Thunder, it'll cap a three-game road trip that started with returning to IN and then saw a triple-overtime win IN Philadelphia on Friday, when Anthony played his best game of the season. "Coming back to the Garden is always a show".

And I hope that you find your people because maybe they're looking for you. "And I just, you know, never mind". Following that comment, after a brief pause, Roberts turned straight to the camera and said, "Bye, Felicia".

With Porzingis leading the way, the Knicks are off to a surprising 15-13 start and are in position for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

"I had a little shock pain there, and that's it". They've had some tough games, but the most important thing is they stay together... Enes Kanter is giving them 13.4 points and 10.3 rebounds a game as the starting center while providing positivity that for years rarely existed in the home locker room.

Oklahoma City let the Philadelphia 76ers virtually the entire contest, but a scoreless final 5:21 minutes allowed Philly to claw their way back and send it to overtime. He led the Knicks in scoring and was an All-Star during each of his six full seasons in NY.
