WHO: Knicks (50-26) vs Wizards (29-41) WHEN: 730PM/ET on MSG W2W4: First of all, props to Melo for winning Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors.  If you’re keeping track, that’s back-to-back weeks that a Knicks player has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. J.R. Smith wore the crown last week. And to further stunt on the league, Melo’s jersey outsold LeBron’s to become the top-selling jersey in the league.  His sudden surge in jersey sales also helped the Knicks maintain the number one position in merchandise sales. We’re winning in every way possible right now.  At some point, the streak will end, but the Washington Wizards won’t be the team to do it.  The Knicks are pretty unstoppable.  Offensively, it seems that Melo is in a zone.  If he continues to have the hot hand, the Wizards don’t stand a chance.  John Wall can and probably will exploit the Knicks porous transition defense because he’s been on a tear of his own– averaging 24.8 points, 8.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game since March 12.  And the Knicks should expect Trevor Ariza to get it going. For some reason, former Knicks players always have a way of reminding us why we loved them so much when they wore orange and blue.  Ariza isn’t any different.  This season, he is averaging 14.7 ppg, which is 5 points above his season average.  But that’s ok because the Knicks have enough offensive weapons that will silence the Wizards. PREDICTION: The Knicks will not falter against the Washington Wizards.  The number 13 will indeed be lucky for the home team.  Knicks win. NEXT GAME: NY Knicks @ Chicago Bulls:  Thursday @ 8PM/ET, MSG & TNT -@sdotrenee photo via truthaboutit.net
