Good evening! The Knicks begin another back-to-back tonight with a game in Chicago, following which they'll head home to face the Nuggets. Though he hopes to play tomorrow, Carmelo Anthony and his lacerated left middle finger will not participate in tonight's game. Chicago's been a much better defensive team than the Heat have-- they're best in the league at defending the three-pointer-- so it'll be interesting to see if the Knicks can even come close to replicating the dominant Melo-less offense we saw on Thursday. Offensively, though, the Bulls are pretty bad. A lot of their points come off long twos and offensive rebounds, the latter being something that might kill the Knicks. New York'll need another uncharacteristically solid rebounding effort (to me, that means a lot of help from the guards) to hold the Bulls to their usual offensive output.
