Game Thread: Knicks vs. Magic- 3/20/13

The Knicks face the Magic in New York.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Good evening! At long last, the Knicks are back at Madison Square Garden for a wholesome 7:30 tip-off against the Magic. Carmelo Anthony will return tonight, which makes the starting lineup this:

I think that lineup should be fun, if a little scary defensively and/or on the glass (though the Magic are prone to missing and poor at rebounding the shots they miss). I'm excited to see how Melo performs now that his knee is empty of knee sap.

Anyway, this looks like New York's opportunity to get another win streak growing after they built momentum at the end of that road trip. The Magic are full of young, relatively unknown gems like Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris and Moe Harkless who seem designed to give the Knicks trouble if taken lightly. Jameer Nelson's always an issue as well. Please don't get trapped, Knicks. You haven't been playing well enough to fall into traps.
