The Thunder are coming off of a two point loss to the Nuggets. Kevin Durant scored a game high 33 points, but Carmelo Anthony's 31 point performance, as well as Nene's 27 point performance was too much to overcome. The Thunder will once again try to win their 4th home game of the season, as they take on the Knicks.

Key Matchup



Kevin Durant

vs.


Wilson Chandler

-Kevin Durant is one of the highest scoring players in the NBA. He's quickly becoming a one of the elite players in the entire league. He will be a tough cover for Chandler.

-Wilson Chandler is one of the best sophomores in the entire NBA. He just seems to get better with every game. It would be a crime, if he doesn't make the starting lineup for the Rookie Sophomore game. He has the ability to neutralize Durant. Let's see if he can do it.

Player Spotlight



Quentin Richardson


For those of you that were crazy enough to actually believe Quentin Richardson was finally going to play well this year...I guess you now know better. Richardson is coming off of a terrible 2 point on 1-13(7.6&#37
0-5 3pt shooting performance. I hope it is now clear the Q-Hitch has to go.


Prediction:
Knicks 108 Oklahoma City Thunder 112
