MILWAUKEE -- Carmelo Anthony drove to the basket for an easy layup in the second half and then glanced back at his defender with a giant smile. It was almost like his face read, "that was easy."

MILWAUKEE -- Before his team hosted the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles wasn't shy about what the Bucks had to do in order to win their second consecutive game.

Aside from the Knicks' own resident Brooklyn boy Carmelo Anthony, there was perhaps no other Knickerbocker looking forward to Monday's matchup with the Nets more than Jason Kidd.After being the leader of such New Jersey Nets squads that went head to head with the Knicks in the early 2000's, Kidd understands exactly what the rivalry is all about. He understands how much...

After losing back to back contests in rather frustrating fashion to both the Mavericks and Jeremy Lin's Rockets, the Knicks were in need of a redemption win.With the team set to charge into Brooklyn on Monday night to take on the Nets, a tune-up was necessary.
