Current Standings - New York: 36-21, 3rd in the Eastern Conference (7.5 behind the Miami Heat), 1st in the Atlantic Division (Leading the Brooklyn Nets by 3.5 games) Detroit: 23-39, 11th in the Eastern Conference (23.0 games behind the Miami Heat), 4th in the Central Division (16.0 games behind the Indiana Pacers, 9.0 games behind the current 8th seed, Milwaukee Bucks)
Previous Meeting - The Knicks defeated the Pistons 99-85 at Madison Square Garden on February 4, 2013.
What To Watch For - Carmelo Anthony is a game-time decision to play tonight. If he plays pay attention to how his injury may limit his game. If Anthony sits out pay attention to how the rest of the team functions on the offensive end without their leading scorer. They made a 22-point comeback Monday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers; hopefully they do not face a similar deficit but hopefully their offense will click similarly to how it did in the second half of that game.
