Merry Christmas, dear friends! I hope you're having a great holiday-- so great, that is, that the Knicks can't ruin it. Here are the pre-game updates:
1. Carmelo Anthony will not play after spraining his ankle on Monday. Probably wise.
2. Kenyon Martin will play and will not have a minutes limit.
3. With Raymond Felton out and awaiting further evaluation, Beno Udrih will start, and Toure' Murry should get some minutes, too.
Knicks are starting Udrih, Shumpert, Smith, Bargnani and Chandler. Good times!— Scott Cacciola (@ScottCacciola) December 25, 2013
Woodson says that Shump will start on Westbrook. Could mean that JR, Melo or K-Mart guards Durant.— charlie widdoes (@charliewiddoes) December 25, 2013
Yeah, we'll see about that. Can the Knicks-- sans Melo and wearing orange, sleeved jerseys-- shock the Thunder? They've come close before in Melo's absence, so you never know. And they have one important thing on their side:

A recap may be up very late or...just never at all, depending on how the game goes/what's going on here at my girlfriend's house. Don't embarrass yourself, the Knicks!
