Blazers @ Knicks: MSG 730pm
Happy New Year Knickswag readers, Amar’e Stoudemire is back! The Knicks host the Blazers at MSG after three days of rest and some much needed practice. STAT will be coming off the bench and Carmelo Anthony is a game time decision. Tyson Chandler and Jason Kidd did not practice in those three days but both are expected back on Tuesday as Chandler suffered a sprained ankle on Friday in the loss at Sacramento and Kidd needed some rest.
New Year’s Resolution Number 1 for the Knicks must be getting their defense back to the way they started the season during the first seven games, when the Knicks were a top 5 defensive squad. They are just not very good defensively on a consistent basis and it’s concerning. Over the last seven games, the Knicks are 3-4. Their three wins included narrow defeats over the Timberwolves and Suns. In the four losses to the Rockets, Bulls, Lakers and Kings, the Knicks gave up an average of 106.3 points per game, allowing their...

The New York Knicks are 21-10, sitting pretty in the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference, enjoying a season in which Carmelo Anthony is an MVP candidate and his team is viewed widely as just a Miami Heat injury away from a shot at the NBA Finals.
They are also, thanks to the wide gulf between the two conferences and a statistical anomaly that's unlikely to last, an utter illusion...
New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, according to Yahoo! Sports. Stoudemire, who had surgery on his left knee in October and has been practicing with the D-League's Erie BayHawks, is ready to go after recently rejoining the Knicks. There is a good chance that Stoudemire will come off...
Once the most dominant team in the league on their home court, the New York Knicks have stumbled there lately.
Having a pair of All-Star forwards back in the lineup might help them get back on track at Madison Square Garden.
Carmelo Anthony, who missed the last two games with a hyperextended left knee, hopes to return on Tuesday night when New York opens 2013 at home against the...
The Portland Trail Blazers overcame Carmelo Anthony's season high-tying 45 points and spoiled Amare Stoudemire's season debut, beating the New York Knicks 105-100 on Tuesday night.

After undergoing preseason knee surgery, New York Knicks All-Star forward Amar’e Stoudemire will make his season debut on Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.
Whether or not Carmelo Anthony returns from his hyper-extended knee on Tuesday, the plan remains for Stoudemire to come off the Knicks’ bench.

At full strength are the Knicks better or worse?
The Knicks are off to a great start this season, going 21-9 while having multiple players suffer pretty serious injuries. Raymond Felton just broke his pinky finger, Rasheed Wallace is now dealing with a stress reaction in his foot and Iman Shumpert is still recovering from surgery on his knee suffered in the first playoff game against the Heat.
Amar’e Stoudemire has not played...
Post Game Recap
Final Score: Trail Blazers: 105 Knicks: 100
The Knicks once again spotted an opponent a huge lead, eventually fighting back but again falling short in the end; this time it was the Blazers doing it to the Knicks, pulling out a 105-100 victory. The Knicks did not come out with any intensity tonight, again lacking effort on the defensive end as the Blazers as...
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.
Though the Knicks' front court has been depleted one way or another (with the likes of Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Marcus Camby, and Rasheed Wallace all previously or currently sidelined), the team will likely receive quite the injection of life to begin 2013, as STAT and Melo are both expected to be in uniform.Camby will also be hitting the hardwood when the Knicks...
New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire reportedly has recovered from a knee injury and will make his season debut Tuesday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
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. New York made sure such a fluke didn't last the entire game, as the Knickerbockers charged back with all...

Blazers 105 Knicks 100
Knicks defensive woes continue as they lose to the Trail Blazers 105-100. New York the last 2 weeks have not played top 10 defense and now their offense is not getting them over the hump either. Lets break it down.
Things They Need to Improve:
- New York’s offense has been very sluggish of late. They bring the ball up the court very...
