    Game Thread Knicks @ 76ers 11/5/12 7:00 PM - Fight For The Atlantic Division





















    Melo scored 27 points, J.R. Smith had 20 and the Knicks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 100-84 on Sunday in the opener of home-and-home series.
    "I think at the end of the day, we know what type of guys we have on this team, we know what's at stake and we want to win," Anthony said. "That's the only thing that's on our minds."


    Jason Kidd had 12 points and six assists, and Raymond Felton added 11 points for the Knicks (2-0), who followed their 19 3-pointers in a season-opening victory over Miami by making 11 Sunday. They have won their two games by a combined 36 points and are 2-0 for the first time since winning their first three games in the 1999-00 season.
    "I think when you share the basketball it becomes contagious, and guys, they feed into it," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "And the fact that we have so many guys that can make shots, you don't know who's going to get you on any given night."





    Both teams are missing high-priced big men because of knee problems. But while center Andrew Bynum's absence could have a big effect on the 76ers, the Knicks have so far shown that they can perhaps space the floor better using a smaller lineup without forward Amar'e Stoudemire.
    "They're very tough to defend. They're playing really good defense," Philadelphia coach Doug Collins said. "It's a very difficult team to play because they can post or they can spread you and they really move the ball really well. They're playing very unselfish basketball."




    The Knicks led for most of the first quarter, getting nine points each from Anthony and Felton en route to a 31-25 lead. They pushed it into double digits in the second and never let the 76ers put much of a dent in it, extending it to 71-55 with 4:25 left in the third on a combined 79-year-old hookup. Kidd, 39, rifled a pass inside to 40-year-old Kurt Thomas, the NBA's oldest player, who scored and was fouled.

    "The experience that we have on this locker room, it doesn't take long to understand how to play the game and that's what we have here," Kidd said, "is guys who know how to play the game and understanding their roles and doing it well."



    Philadelphia finally got it down to nine at the end of three, but Smith hit consecutive 3-pointers to push it back to 15, and he made another to give the Knicks their largest lead at 86-69 with 8:23 to play.The Knicks cruised from there, even getting a basket from Rasheed Wallace, back in the NBA at 38 after two years of retirement. Anthony, one of the NBA's elite scorers but not known for doing much else, was active defensively, even leaping over a row of chairs trying to save a ball he'd knocked free in the first quarter. He said he knew where he was going to land so wasn't worried about injury, but his teammates were impressed anyway.
    "It's really contagious when you see your star player going out there, diving in the crowd, giving up open shots, going for loose balls. It really filters throughout the team," Smith said. "So as long as he keeps doing it, I think everybody won't have a problem doing it."



    The 76ers also lost starting guard Jason Richardson less than two minutes in when he sprained his left ankle after stepping on a camera man behind the baseline. X-rays were negative but he won't play Monday.

    KNICKS











    76ers










    Biggest Matchup







    Is Evan Turner ready to guard the Kobe's, Lebron's, and Melo's of the league?

    What The Knicks Must Do for a W

    - Keep up the good ball movement. We won't win with a stagnant iso ball offense.
    - Take advantage of when Melo is being double teamed. (this can lead to easy buckets especially for guys that can stroke the three)
    - Bench must contribute (Guys like Smith, Novak, Prigioni have to lead the second unit).
    - DEFENSE!


    Tonight's Tracks









    Will the Sixers come back to their hometown with a chip on their shoulder? Can the Knicks keep up their impressive ball movement and defense? We'll see on Monday, Nov 5 at 7:00 PM ET. GO KNICKS!

    This is gonna be a tough game. They are gonna play with a lot of pride...yet if we just stick to defending and playing team ball we should pull this one out

    gotta keep them off the offensive boards and keep turnovers down...if we do both of those as well as take smart shots...we are 3-0

    I love the game thread AmareforPres and great choice of music. Green Rep

    I think all we gotta do is play defense like we did today. I've quickly gained confidence in our offense. If we hold them to 84 again we win this game. 100 points is good against the 76ers even with their injuries. They held Denver to 75 in their opener. And they actually scored 84 points against the Nuggets too. Im sure ESPN would have some kind of a made up stat if they scored 84 again tomorrow night. "And the 76ers are the first team since the Sacramento Kings to score the same amount of points in their first 3 games" smh

    IMO, we'll need a massive game from Melo. Given our recent history in Philly, we've been able to ride out of there with a W. The stud we've ridden out of there each time has been Melo.

    With that unparalleled ball movement the team has fashioned so quickly, combined with the perimeter shooting, we have the tools, in addition to Melo's dominance over Thad Young, to pull this out relatively easily.

    They'll be psyched, but the D we've seen from Kidd, JR, Brewer - I think we take them.

    Doug Collins is one of the best in the game I am sure he has been up all night thinking of a way to stop #7. He should expect to see more double teams as soon as he crosses the 3 point line or post up on the elbow. Their game plan going into yesterdays game should have been don't let Melo beat you I am sure Collins will stick that in their ears again. If they find away to clamp down Melo expect to see a big point total from Rey Felton. He still wants to prove his worth and lock down his niche on the team.

    I'm confident that even with Melo frequently doubled our ball movement will still be enough to get others open. Even if Melo is swarmed he still puts up 20+ a night. Expect a good showing from our bench again. If Priggers and Novak can bring it then we have a good chance. Will be a good test to see how we measure up to a motivated team.

    Great game thread.

    This is a big game for many reasons

    1- 1st Road Game
    2- Previously beat the team
    3- 3 days rest coming up

    Win this game, 3 days rest for Dallas and then Orlando. Great chance to start 5-0

    1 game at time

    nice thread AFP! i especially like the quotes and soundtrack choices.

    "Ice Cream" is one of my fave Wu-tracks

    "Ice cold bitches melt down when in the clutch
    They want they titties sucked, ice cream"

    seriously, another test for 'bockers to beat same team back-to-back.
    pressure on knicks to defend and keep ball movement going.

    Melo must be the truemelo and continue his aggressive ways, both on O and D, and lead by his hustling & bustling.

    also comes down to coach Wood Son, outmaneuvering smart coach Collins from righting the philly wrongs.

    a tough assignment, but i think Knicks will romp.

    Lets go, If we lose i still hope we play how we played on defense throughout this 2 game stretch. Offense is not given each game but you can play great defense when ever you want to.

    We have our 1st bandwagon rider

    Frank Isola ‏@FisolaNYDN
    Remember last year's most absurd storyline: Can Carmelo fit in with the point guard with 25 career starts under his belt? What a joke.
