Hi! The Knicks are playing the Thunder. All the Thunder, not the Thunder sans Kevin Durant like last time. Here's the injury news for New York:
Carmelo Anthony is out for the Knicks tonight. Lance Thomas is available.— Stefan Bondy (@SBondyNYDN) January 26, 2016
Fine with that. There is no pressure to rush Melo if his knee's still sore. Sounds like there's not a huge problem there and the Knicks are just being conservative:
For background. Melo said yesterday he was "looking forward" to playing. Fisher said today he and medical staff agreed not to risk it— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) January 26, 2016
... but at least Lance is back! It's going to be tough to beat the Thunder either way, but hey, the Nets just did it.
Tip-off is at 7:30 on MSG. This is your game thread. This is Welcome to Loud City. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams. Please be nice. Go the Knicks!
