    Melo V Smith is so massive.

    We take this win and 5th seed is - circumstantially - within our grasp.




    Will Melo add to his recently regained form and confidence and win the most pivotal matchup of the game?



    Even without two of their top players, the New York Knicks continue to have success.

    They’ll try for a fourth consecutive victory as they face the struggling Atlanta Hawks in interim coach Mike Woodson’s return to Philips Arena on Friday night.

    With Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin missing their second consecutive contests, Carmelo Anthony and rookie Iman Shumpert both had 25 points as New York went on a 21-0 third-quarter run and beat Orlando 108-86 on Wednesday.

    Above .500 for the first time since they were 6-5 on Jan. 12, the Knicks (26-25) have won two in a row and eight of nine since Woodson replaced Mike D’Antoni. New York has a 2 1/2-game lead on Milwaukee for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.


    “As a coach I’m always interested in when you’re short-handed who’s going to step up and make plays?” Woodson said. “And we’re getting it from everybody and that to me is a sign of a good, quality team that wants to win.”

    While Stoudemire hopes to return from a back problem by the end of the regular season, it’s uncertain if Lin will play Friday due to an injured knee. The Knicks, though, have been faring well no matter who has been on the floor.

    Reserves J.R. Smith and Steve Novak combined for 28 points as New York shot 50.6 percent overall and outscored the Magic 65-30 over the second and third quarters.

    New York is allowing an average of 86.0 points under Woodson, a vast improvement from the 96.5 opponents were scoring against the Knicks under D’Antoni.

    “Right now, with the coaching change, we’ve been playing extremely well,” Anthony said. “Guys seem to be responding pretty well. We’ve been really locked in on our mission right now.”

    After failing to score more than 17 points in each of the previous seven games, Anthony has totaled 53 in the last two without Stoudemire and Lin. Anthony scored 15 in a 99-82 home win over the Hawks (30-22) on Feb. 22, but he’s averaged 24.3 points in eight career games at Atlanta.

    The Knicks have won three straight over the Hawks by an average of 14.0 points, and they’ve taken three of four at Philips.




    Woody Returns To The Turd's Nest

    Woodson gets a chance to experience this matchup from the Knicks’ point of view after serving as Hawks coach from 2004-2010. His former team has dropped two straight since a four-game winning streak, falling 98-77 to Chicago on Wednesday.

    Atlanta showed some expected fatigue against a Bulls team that was without injured star Derrick Rose, shooting 40.0 percent for the game and getting outscored 77-54 after the first quarter. The Hawks were playing for the fifth time in six days.

    “We couldn’t get anything going,” said forward Josh Smith, who had a team-high 19 points.

    Hawks star Joe Johnson, however, thought the problem ran deeper than the busy schedule. Atlanta had jumped out to a 13-5 lead.

    “Sometimes, we’re not so disciplined,” Johnson said. “It seems like there’s a few guys who don’t know their roles on this team. We do a lot of things that don’t help us.”

    That hasn’t been the case for Smith, who’s averaged 25.5 points and 12.2 rebounds in the last six games. He’s averaged 21.7 and 10.0 in the last three at home versus New York.

    Haha great find bro! Jeffries actually had decent hops in College. As great as he has been this season, I wonder why he always goes for layups instead of throwing the rock down?!

    BTW: Sick beat, could see Jada or Cam'ron on this

    This game should be entertaining

    Shump needs to lock up Joe Johnson and make his life hell offensively

    Melo Vs Josh smith? both explosive scorers im looking forward to that

    I think the key to winning this game will be rebounding

    Nice GT @ Crazy those 2nd boobs are gigantic

    Lin out again tonight. There must be something really wrong because he said days ago that he was feeling good.

    Yeah something is definitely wrong. Its being reported that Woodson doesn't know "when" and "if" Lin will return anytime soon.

    Once again, Lin was on a post game show saying he felt fine and was only missing the next game as a precaution. There must be some structural damage somewhere in his knee. Management just doesn't want to report it yet.

    its funny that he doesn't play that way anymore, he never was over athletic and was just a pure high energy player, he could easily be a 10 and 7 guy for us

    maybe they are just resting Lin as a precaution to give Baron/bibby/douglas more minutes before the playoffs.

    It's another big game against an eastern conference playoff team. should be good.

    Great thread as per usual, CrazyBro.
    Sucks Lin is out, but better safe than sorry. Let him rest that knee as long as he needs too, rather than do more damage. BDiddy and Shump can hold it down for a bit at the point. Mr. Potato Wood needs to use that bench, even if it means getting TD back in the mix. As long as D is our main focus, we can hang and bang with them all. Looking forward to getting some kind of healthy sooner than later though.

    Default Well

    everytime i get excited...the knicks blow it. Like the loss to toronto. But they pick me back up, with a huge win in orlando. Now it's ATL? will the Knicks nation cheer or jeer? hopefully they don't embarass us again. We can win this game and I'd much rather jump out of the 8th spot up to 4,5 or 6 if possible.
    Lets see what these knicks got!

    BTW in the background of the Knicks Pre-Game show, Tyson Chandler's post shots are looking good as he works out with Herb Williams.
