    Game Thread New York Knicks @ Orlando Magic 11/13/12 7:00 PM


    New York Knicks
    @ Orlando Magic
    November 13, 2012
    7:00 PM ET










    Game Preview:

    With Carmelo Anthony leading the way, the New York Knicks are one of the highest-scoring teams in the league.

    It's their commitment on the defensive end, though, that's set them apart from the pack.

    The Knicks try to extend their best start in 19 seasons Tuesday night when they visit the Orlando Magic, who are hoping to avoid matching their longest losing streak from 2011-12.

    The only unbeaten team in the NBA, New York (4-0) is thriving on both ends of the floor. The Knicks are averaging 104.5 points and have allowed 87.5 and 40.7 percent shooting - both tops in the league.

    New York came out with another stingy effort Friday, forcing 20 turnovers in a 104-94 win over Dallas. Anthony scored a season-high 31 points for the Knicks, who held the Mavericks to 37 in the second half.

    "We got up to play in that third quarter, second half, got up defensively, denied the passing lanes and we played our defense that we've been playing for the last week," said Anthony, whose career average of 27.9 points against the Magic is his highest against any opponent.

    "We ain't really worried about the naysayers, we just focused on Orlando at this point. These four games are over with and we move on. We take it one game at a time, I've been saying that since training camp and I'll continue to say that.

    "In addition to Anthony, sixth man J.R. Smith has given New York a huge boost with a career-high 17.5 points per game. Smith has gone 11 of 16 from 3-point range.

    Tyson Chandler is averaging a team-best 7.5 rebounds while Raymond Felton has recorded 6.8 assists per game."New York's a veteran team and if you give them more possessions and you give them possessions on catastrophic turnovers, they're going to convert them into points," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. "They're a very good team. In my opinion they're one of the handful of teams that has a chance to come out of the East."

    The Knicks have taken three of four from the Magic. They won two of three meetings last season, with the victories coming by an average of 19.0 points.

    Orlando (2-4) has averaged 77.5 points during a four-game skid. Two nights after falling 107-68 to Brooklyn in the opener of a home-and-home set, Orlando lost 82-74 on Sunday

    .Glen Davis and Arron Afflalo each had 19 points for the Magic, who were outscored 35-17 in the first quarter.

    "The shots that we had tonight were good shots when you look on it. It's just the matter at the beginning of the game having that focus for 48 minutes, not just three quarters or one quarter or one half," said coach Jacque Vaughn, whose team is averaging a league-low 87.8 points.

    "Soon as that ball is thrown up at the beginning of the game, that focus needs to be there."The Magic, who continue to play without former Knick Al Harrington and Hedo Turkoglu, could also be without point guard Jameer Nelson for a sixth consecutive game.

    "We all have to stick together, win or lose, when it's good and bad," Nelson said. "Every team goes through losing streaks and goes through situations when you hit adversity in the course of a season - we're hitting it right now. (We) got some guys out (but) we don't make excuses."


    Player Stats:



    27 PPG, 44 FG%, 35% From Three, 7 RPG

    Melo has been a beast so far this season. Averaging 27 points per game while shooting at an efficient 44% field goal percentage.
    Not only has he been a monster on offense but he has really stepped up on defense as well. If he keeps this up will he be able to dethrone Lebron James as the league MVP?





    17 PPG, 46 FG%, 688% from three wow!, 2 SPG

    I know it's still early, but if JR Smith keeps playing the way that he is then he will definitely be in the running for the sixth man of the year award. Not only has his offense finally been consistent but also like Melo his defense has really stepped up as well. Averaging 17.5 points per game along with 2 steals per game.





    17 PPG, 46 FG%, 33% From Three

    The best player that Orlando received from the Dwight Howard trade. Really solid on both sides of the court. Afflalo will mostly likely have the job of guarding Melo tonight.

    Starting Lineups:





























    Biggest Matchup:






    We will for sure see a lot of Afflalo on Melo (pause). Will Afflalo be able to disrupt Melo's game?



    Tonight's Tasks:

    - Maintain the good ball movement
    - Do not rely on threes
    - Don't let Orlando get hot from three ( they have a lot of good shooters that can light u up from three Nelson, Redick, Turkoglu)
    - Attack the boards (The return of Camby should help in this department)



    Tonight's Tracks:









    GO KNICKS!

    Damn good thread A4P +3. That Melo play is going to be on his highlight reel for the rest of his career. I did not realize Chandler was under 8rbs per game he needs to grab +10 tonight. We should have James White and Copeland in with 6 minutes to go #Knickstape

    This GT is righteous AFP.

    I love our starting lineup.

    Leave Melo at the 4 Woodson!

    Nice to be first in the division though it's early.


    5-0 baby.... hopefully

    Melo has to get 40+ tonight, and hit that 30 ppg mark.

    Orlando is weak.

    How many points will Kidd hold Redick to? I say Redick struggles to get 10.
