Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE
The Knicks and Rockets tip off at 7:30.
Hi! We're nearing tip-off of Knicks-Rockets. The game-time decisions have been made and Carmelo Anthony will sit with a sprained left ankle (/sore whole left leg) for the second straight game. Chris Copeland will start once more at power forward and match up with Marcus Morris (Patrick Patterson is out for Houston. Morris played very well as his understudy this weekend). As mentioned before, Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby are both out with various sore leg parts/old age.
Tip-off is at 7:30. the game will be televised on both MSG and NBA TV. This is your game thread. This is The Dream Shake, a fine Rockets blog (farewell to Tom Martin!). Comment along in this thread, but please don't post large photos, .gifs, or links to illegal streams.
11-0 at home and five straight wins are on the line. This is also New York's chance to avenge the awful loss Houston dealt them back in November. Jeremy Lin and Toney Douglas are back in the building. Get 'em, Knicks.
