Turn On The Knicks:
New York Knicks
Golden State Warriors
Oklahoma City Thunder
So Carmelo Anthony goes down and the New York Knicks complete a huge comeback and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, outlast the Detroit Pistons in a roller coaster battle and take the Oklahoma City Thunder to the buzzer. Then Amar’e Stoudemire’s knee explodes again and the Knicks – still sans Anthony – beat the Utah Jazz by nearly 30 points. At last check, the Utah Jazz do indeed play in the National Basketball Association, the world’s best basketball league. Suffice it to say that’s a pretty solid job by the rest of the Knicks.
We don’t know how long Anthony will be out. Alan Hahn reported earlier Monday that ‘Melo did make the trip to California for Monday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, but we’ll find out at shootaround time whether or not Anthony will go . There’s just no way of telling with the Knicks’ because they hide the truth about injuries as though they’re holding the keys to a warehouse holding all of our nuclear missiles. Or something like that.
(UPDATE: Melo say
BEST OF MAXIM

Carmelo Anthony does not have many people in his corner in Denver anymore.
