Good evening, friends! Hope you've had a relaxing Saturday. The Knicks will complete an interrupted home-and-home with the Hawks at home tonight. They'll be wearing the cursed (0-3) orange jerseys, which frightens me. New York will look to build on Thursday's win, which saw them build a double-digit lead with some lovely offense, then lose it with some truly awful third-quarter stagnation, only to survive down the stretch. It would help if they could contain Jeff Teague even a little this time.
All is as it has been: Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, and Andrea Bargnani will start. Kenyon Martin and Amar'e Stoudemire could play. Metta World Peace, I just read, will not:
Metta World Peace (sore left knee) is inactive tonight versus @ATLHawks. Chris Smith is active.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) November 16, 2013
That's the surgery knee. Nevermind. Something's weird.) (If there is garbage time, there may be Chris Smith.)
