Carmelo Anthony has recorded at least 30 points in seven of the last eight games, including 45 points in a loss to Portland on Tuesday. The Knicks are 5-3 in that stretch though and have lost five of their last eight and three of their las...

Don't be fooled by New York's record

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...

Matchup of the Game: Spurs vs. Knicks

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. Anthony shot...
