The Knicks are in London for a showcase game against the Pistons. Another example of the NBA making its rounds around the world.
There’s a great upside to this trip, it gives the hobbled Knicks some much needed rest. In the next week they will have only played this one game. Coach Woodson and Carmelo anthony are all about this break:
“I think the NBA did a great job with the way they scheduled it, getting us over there three days early, give us a chance to get acclimated to London, and then coming back having some days off as well. So this is a big week for us as far as getting our bodies right and taking care of the things we’ve got to take care of.” – Carmelo Anthony
“With our team, we could use some of these days because it’s been every other day, or you might have a day, and then you’ve got another game, so I mean we’ve been kind of going at it a little bit…” – Coach Mike Woodson
