    Game Preview

    The New York Knicks' and San Antonio Spurs' seasons have often gone in contrasting directions since the turn of the millennium.

    The Knicks, though, have gotten the better of the five-time NBA champions in most of the recent matchups.

    A seemingly rejuvenated Carmelo Anthony will try to help them earn another victory over San Antonio on Monday night at Madison Square Garden.

    New York (2-1) has finished with just three winning records since the end of the 2000-01 season and reached the playoffs four times. San Antonio, meanwhile, has made the postseason in 18 consecutive years and boasts an NBA-record 16 consecutive seasons with at least 50 wins, including a 50-16 finish in a lockout-shortened 2011-12.

    Despite those differing fortunes, the Knicks have won four of the past six matchups and three of four at MSG. New York prevailed 104-100 in overtime on its own floor in the most recent meeting March 17 despite Anthony's absence due to left knee surgery. Langston Galloway led the Knicks with what was a then-career high 22 points.

    Anthony was back in superstar form in a 117-110 victory at Washington on Saturday, scoring 37 points on 11-of-18 shooting. The forward totaled 36 points in the first two games since his surgery while missing 29 of 43 shots, including 11 of 12 from 3-point range.

    "It felt good. It's been a while since February," he said. "I keep saying it, but it's been a while for me to kind of have this experience."

    Anthony will face San Antonio for the first time since registering 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting and 12 rebounds in a 105-101 road victory Jan, 2, 2014. He was dealing with soreness in his left knee before a 109-95 loss in San Antonio on Dec. 10.

    Thanks for the game thread Rady. SA is one of the good teams that we have had success with including a victory at MSG last season. They can be had, let's go Knicks.

    Nice start for us so far. Porzingis attacking the hoop with some creativity and positive results.

    Porzingis with 5 points, 5 boards, and an assist in the first 5 minutes. He is also playing solo defense against Aldridge.

    Thats something about Timmy taking a 10m/2yr deal so they could have cap space to sign LMA. Thats a guy that wants to win, most guys would be on some other team rather than taking a paycut like that. THe Spurs need to take care of him when he hangs them up.

    Spurs getting the best of us in the first half, but Porzingis has looked impressive in the middle. He has 9 rebounds and two dominant blocked shots, one on a driving Parker and the other on a driving Leonard.

    Nice defensive game by Zinger today. Looks like the Knicks scoring avg of 113 ppg is going down big time tonight. Kawhi has Melo's number I don't think it gets better in the second half. Man I would love for the Knicks to rally and get this one, the fans deserve this home win.

    Porzingis with the putback dunk. He's not having the most efficient game, but he just keeps making plays tonight.
