Let's run down that short-handedness quickly: Carmelo Anthony won't play. Neither will Bill Walker, who's elbow is bugging him. Thus, Iman Shumpert will start at small forward (it lacks shooting, but I love a Lin-Landry-Shump lineup). J.R. Smith and Baron Davis will both suit up for the game, but it would probably take an unusual scenario (serious foul trouble, a blowout one way or the other) for either of them to suit up.
So, uh, given the way the Mavs are playing, and given the way the injury-riddled Knicks have played over the last three games...this one could get a little weird. And, as is always the case with Knicks games that have the potential to get weird, it's on national TV. ABC, in fact (and not MSG).
Comment here throughout the game and don't forget to check out Mavs Moneyball. As always, please refrain from posting photos, .gifs, illegal streams, and links to Shia LaBeouf's tax returns in the thread. Tip-off's at 1!
