Heat at Knicks game preview
TIME: Thursday at 8 p.m.
Having shown signs of turning things around of late, the New York Knicks will get a chance to see just how far they’ve come against the two-time defending NBA champions.
Carmelo Anthony has saved some of his best performances for the Miami Heat, a trend he hopes to continue as the teams meet for the first time this season Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.
Anthony knocked down three straight 3-pointers Tuesday during a 15-0 third-quarter run for the Knicks (12-22), who kept moving in a positive direction with an 89-85 victory over visiting Detroit.
Anthony finished with 34 points and hit a season-high six 3s as New York won for the third time in four games since the six-time All-Star returned from a three-game absence because of a sprained left ankle.
”He’s capable of doing that,” coach Mike Woodson said. ”Some nights you have to expect that from Melo, but it can’t always be Melo.”
