Carmelo Anthony is probably not going to join the fun on the Garden court tonight, according to a league source. Anthony needs more time and is doubtful to make his return to Linsanity until Sunday against the Mavericks.
But if you believe in kismet, then wrap your mind around these numbers when this does happen: Amar’e Stoudemire wears “1,’’ Anthony wears “7’’.
Put 1 and 7 together and you get No. 17 — Jeremy Lin’s jersey number. Sounds like a winning combination.
