    Game Preview:
    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] have won five in a row to move into the No. 6 position in the Eastern Conference, but they’ll have to try to extend their streak with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] watching in street clothes.
    They’ve already won once in New Jersey without him.
    That came two months ago in their only game without Stoudemire, and the Knicks again will be missing their All-Star big man when they look to complete a season sweep of the also-short-handed Nets on Friday night.
    It was getting awfully tough to take New York (40-38) seriously as a postseason contender after six straight defeats from March 18-26, but the team has responded with five consecutive wins.
    The first four came at Madison Square Garden before Wednesday night’s trip to Philadelphia, where the winner would have the inside track for the East’s sixth seed. The Knicks blew a 19-point lead in the second half after [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] left in the third quarter with a bruised right thigh, and Stoudemire exited in the fourth with an ankle injury, but they emerged with a 97-92 victory.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] scored seven points in the final 1:47, and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] hit a late 3-pointer to finish with 31 points.
    “We’re keeping the momentum going, we’re keeping the streak going,” said Anthony, who also had 11 rebounds. “We wanted to win. I don’t really care about (the) six or seven (seed).”
    To further extend their longest streak since winning a season-high eight in a row from Nov. 28-Dec. 12, the Knicks must win without Stoudemire. Coach Mike D’Antoni said the team will be cautious after Stoudemire’s sprained left ankle swelled up since Wednesday’s game.
    Billups is expected to start Friday despite his injury.
    He and Stoudemire aren’t the only two big names banged up heading into this game. Nets star point guard [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is out for the season following Friday’s wrist surgery.
    New Jersey starters [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (knee) and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (foot) also missed Wednesday’s 116-109 loss at Detroit.
    The only previous game Stoudemire has missed in a New York uniform came because of a toe injury Feb. 12 in New Jersey, 10 days before Billups and Anthony arrived. The Knicks made just 21 of 52 (40.4 percent) shots from inside the arc but hit 16 of 34 (47.1 percent) from 3-point range in a 105-95 win.
    “They lived and died with it,” Nets coach Avery Johnson said after the loss. “And they lived.”
    Douglas had 19 points off the bench in that game.
    Stoudemire scored 35 in a 111-100 win over New Jersey (24-54) at MSG on Nov. 30, while Anthony had 39 and Billups 33 in a 120-116 victory there March 30.
    One thing the Knicks haven’t done against the Nets is find a way to stop [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. The third-year center has averaged 27.0 points in the series, though he’s managed to grab only 18 total rebounds in the three games.
    Lopez had a career-high 39 points Wednesday at Detroit, but he didn’t have much help with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] starting in the frontcourt. Still, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who had 18 points and 11 assists, was pleased with his team’s effort.
    “Guys played hard tonight,” Farmar said. “We don’t have a lot of games left and playoffs are out of the question, but guys are still coming out here and competing and playing down to the wire.”
    Of the Nets’ injured starters, Morrow is believed to have the best chance to play Friday.-yahoo

    Guy has to dominate. with no Stat and Chauncey we really have no one capable of making their own offense. To that I say.... someone has to do it.

    Check This Out:
    The Knicks and Nets since 2000 have had a somewhat weird pattern concerning the playoffs. Besides the years 2004, both teams have not made the playoffs the same year the other did:
    2000-New York
    2001-New York
    2002-New Jersey
    2003-New Jersey
    2004-New York,New Jersey
    2005-New Jersey
    2006-New Jersey
    2007-New Jersey
    2008-None
    2009-None
    2010-None
    2011-New York
    What's Even worse is, in The New York area, Neither team has won a title for in over 38 years!(4 trips to the NBA Finals:2NY,2NJ)

    Prediction:
    With so many players missing I have no idea, but this is the time we can call the team The New York Melo's.

    I suppose this game will mean a lot to Skywalker, as we all know Amare is supposed to sit on the bench to get some rest, so I hope we're all gonna see Bill starting and getting some more minutes.
    Probably also Brown will get some more playing time as well.

    Another big game for NY. Can't lose to a depleated NJ team without Williams. They're horrible to begin with. Without or without the wrist injury, I'm so thankful we went after Melo instead of D-Will. Now that D-Will is injured & out for the year? LMAO @ any Knicks fan who questioned the trade after we landed a top 3-5 NBA Star.

    Speaking of the Nets. I feel bad for the New Jersey fans. They better enjoy this year & next year with everything they have; because come 2012? The NBA won't be the same as they once knew it. Losing their franchise to their hated rivals of New York. lol kind of funny but sad @ the same time. Say bye-bye to NBA basketball. Nothing like the Jets & Giants situation. They won't be called "New Jersey" anymore. Thats the difference bettween NY & "NJ", you cant compare the two. The Nets will lose every or just about every long time Nets fan come 2012. No real & true Knicks fan will ever leave the Knicks for the "Brooklyn Nets". Spike is from Brooklyn & said he'll never do so much as root NJ

    Melo is not a top 3-5 superstar. For this year, I agree Melo is a better option...but I would not sacrifice the future for one year. D-Will is the better player at a more important position.

    Again with this? I don't care what the stats say, we've got one of the best players in the league and a man who can close out against anyone. Keep D-Will if it means losing that (not that it would ever happen). There's no PG in the game that is more important to Melo to this team in the future, CP3 and D-Will could be as important, that's about it.

    I never said he wasn't one of the top players in the league, I just said he wasn't top 5.

    On his day, he's top 1. Ask LeBron.

    You can keep your stat makers in the reg season, Melo is gonna prove it where it matters most.

    I'm calling for Melo's first 45-50 point game tonight. Without Amare this offense is going through Melo & I'm looking for Melo to EXPLODE on a weak Nets team. One thing is for sure, I hate to be without Amare & Billups but I'm excited to see our depth players get a chance in TD23, Shelden, Turiaf, Carter & Brown should even get some burn time. Looking for Fields to produce on offense tonight.

    Guys... You DO know that NYK17 (NJN17) is really a NETS fan from the Jets site who hates anything & everything about the Knicks RIGHT? Ahaha it's funny. On the Jets site he goes by the name of "624". I actually made that thread about the Nets fans because I seen he was online and ahaha he fell for the bait. On the Jets site, he ALWAYS corrected me when I made it known Melo was a top 5 player. He ALWAYS said "he wasn't". I'll post links later, just send me a PM for em. You'll laugh. And here he is... Quoting my each and every post again. Making it "known" his favorite D-Will is "better than Melo". On the Jets site he was talking about my post count in gameday threads 3 nights ago the SAME night he talked about my post count on here. Send me a PM lol I'll send you the link (already have em saved). 624 is NJN17 who joined right after me to quote my every post ahahahah. NJN17 (624) is also online @ TGG right now talking about me ahahah. Just PM me guys funny reads.

    What the **** is this pile of ****? I'm just going to look past the fact that it looks like a 12 year old girl typed this, and hope you will stop trying to de-rail another thread with your false accusations. It's sad that you are so homerish and insecure you have to make up stuff about another poster when we don't agree with your childish sports opinions.

    You've mentioned this before me thinks. I just can't remember if it was on every other thread or whether you missed one. Look if this guy's spending this much time on you then you should feel honoured that someone's taking time out of his life to grab your attention. He may well be a NJN fan as well. Honestly I don't give a flying **** what the deal is. Most of us here joined the forum to discuss basketball and the Knicks in particular. Is it too much to request that you do the same on threads that are topic related. The two of you are more than welcome to fight it out via private messages.

    As for Williams....I think he's a brilliant PG, but he aint got nothing on Anthony. Don't think anyone would have Williams on their team over Anthony. Carter and Douglas should start today.

    I already looked on TGG.com and saw that thread. Funny reading.

    Don't think there's any real proof NY17 and 624 are the same person though.

    What I found hilarious was those guys bashing you for posting too much, some of them had close to 20,000 posts hahahaha!! They are like the worst kind of nerdragers I've ever seen. Creating multiple accounts here and worrying about getting banned because it would ruin their evening of cyber-bullying!

    The guys over there definitely lead fulfilling lives when their idea of a night of fun is to follow some random guy around the internet harrassing him

    That's why I said "in no order" right? PM me if you want with your stupidity, I don't want to hijack this game thread into another one of your attention whoring threads, desperately seeking people to PM you and falsely calling other poster's out.
