Tim Duncan and Carmelo Anthony, power forwards for their teams, will be the matchup when the San Antonio Spurs face the New York Knicks.
The two men probably won't guard each other with their coaches possibly switching their centers (Tiago Splitter for S.A. and Tyson Chandler for N.Y.), but they'll have plenty to do with how the other performs this game.

Contending teams have been known to play poorly every now and again. As steady as a squad can be, no one can be perfect.That's why it wasn't worth getting up in arms about the Knicks' feeble effort in the first half of Friday night's game against the Kings.
