    Today in Knicks history

    Octiber 31, 1997 Knicks begin 52nd season with a 97-85 win over the Hornets at Charlotte. Three Knicks eclipse the 20 point-mark (Patrick Ewing, 23, Larry Johnson, 22, and John Starks, 20) in leading the squad to its sixth straight opening night win.


    Game Preview

    New York has been held to 90.1 points and 41.5 percent shooting during the current slide, while Washington has received balanced scoring from Beal (19.0), Wall (18.4) and Marcin Gortat (12.1).

    Carmelo Anthony appeared in five of those seven meetings for the Knicks and averaged 23.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting. He's struggled with his shot so far, going 14 for 43 (32.6 percent) and making 1 of 12 from 3-point range.

    Anthony scored 25 on Thursday but shot 10 of 27 in a 112-101 home loss to Atlanta. He had 11 points in a 122-97 win the night before in Milwaukee, which marked his first game since a knee injury ended his 2014-15 season in February.

    "I kind of prepared myself (for being rusty), but on the flip side of that I want to get it going," Anthony said. "I don't want to try to push it too much. I want to let it come to me naturally and not try to force it out there as far as trying to force my rhythm.

    " ... It'll come back. Everything will start clicking for me."

    Robin Lopez has been an early bright spot for the new-look Knicks after coming over from Portland in July on a four-year, $54 million contract. He's averaged 13.0 points and made 11 of 16 from the field.

    Fellow starter Kristaps Porzingis, the No. 4 overall pick in June's draft, is also scoring 13.0 per game but shooting 33.3 percent.

    "(The chemistry) will get there," Anthony said. "We have it some moments and some moments we don't. But it's there and is something that will come around to us."

    Flip Saunders rip gone at 60. So many players passing away too early, Ticky Burden died at 61 rip.

    JC should have seen that coming and fouled Wall instead of playing matador.

    Thanks for Game Thread Rady .. So far Calderon performance is 0-2 in both season games.
    Will Calderon wakeup and show some winning hustle at PG vs the Wizards PG Wall

    Our starters are slow bringing ball up court always looking for perimeter shots plus they are defenseless

    Our brutal schedule to start the season continues. Yet another playoff team from last year. Oh well, we are holding our own so far through one quarter.

    I haven't figured out if Fish has any method to his madness for his subs, he had JC subbing for Grant for a couple of mins while the 2nd unit was in there.

    Calderon and Melo having decent games. He's been testy with everyone saying he should be replaced in the lineup, making baskets is the only way he's going to quiet his critics, he needs to shoot.
