Excellent gameday thread la2ny. Outstanding job; really enjoyed it. I'm on the schedule tomorrow for the Mavs gameday thread. You wanna be the one to create it? No way I can compete with you guys in terms of creating gameday threads like this.

This is gonna be a playoff type of game for the Knicks tonight. Memphis is playing lights out, fighting for their playoff chances & have home court advantage. Knicks have to come into this game with a defensive intensity that speaks volumes of road warriors.

Predictions: (based on Douglas starting over Billups).

New York: 102
Memphis: 96

Offensive MVP's- Carmelo Anthony. 42 points, 2 assists, 6 rebounds 1 block and 1 steal. 1st 40+ game as a Knick. The 1st of many. I'm feeling it. I predicted Melo would score 34 last game & Carmelo did just that.

Runner up: Amare Stoudemire. 27 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks & 3 assists. Amare has a monster game in his own right.

Stat N' Melo-Stat N' Melo combine for 69 of the Knicks 102 points.
