    Game Preview

    The New York Knicks have an opportunity to match their longest winning streak from last season in their first nine games, but the Charlotte Hornets are also showing some aptitude lately.

    That winning streak last season also came to an end in Charlotte, where the Knicks will be Wednesday night with both teams trying to win a back-to-back set.

    New York (4-4) won 111-109 in Toronto on Tuesday, two nights after beating the Los Angeles Lakers at home, and can match a three-game streak from Jan. 19-23.

    Carmelo Anthony had 25 points, and while he's still searching for his shot to some extent, he's at least averaging 24.5 points and hitting 41.9 percent in the consecutive wins after being at 17.7 and 31.4 on the preceding three-game losing streak.

    The Knicks improved to 3-1 on the road a season after finishing 7-34 and being outscored by 10.6 points per game in opponents' arenas.

    While they've been strong defending the 3 over the last six games (27.5 percent), they countered on the other side by hitting 11 for 23 from 3-point range against the Raptors with Lance Thomas going 3 for 3. The reserve forward had a season-high 17 points and is shooting 58.5 percent for the season after finishing last season at 41.2.

    "He's another guy who adds value to what we are and he helped us win this game tonight," coach Derek Fisher said.
    It's also helped that the Knicks have taken care of the ball with 19 total turnovers in the consecutive wins after averaging 16.2 over the previous five contests, but there's still plenty of room for improvement. They were outscored 60-34 in the paint and allowed Toronto to get to the line 39 times.

    "We were fortunate to get out with the win giving up 60 points in the paint and fouling as much as we did," Fisher said. "Those are areas that we're really trying to improve in a major way."

    New York's only three-game run last season ended with a 76-71 loss in Charlotte on Jan. 24 as the Hornets won the last three meetings of the four-game season series.

    Knicks went from a 33-21 lead to a halftime deficit of 49-47. A 28-14 CHA run... Dominated the boards, but Melo shot 4-13 and CHA only had 3 turnovers. Williams doesn't score... Affalo hit 3 of his first 4 shots... Knicks 0-11 from three. Knicks didn't get 1 FT attempt... Incredible. Porzingis was suburb...

    Knicks shoot 13-16 in the third... Melo explodes in third quarter... Calderon with another solid outing... Knicks 7th in NBA with fewest turnovers per game... But have 13 so far.

    Knicks go over the foul limit 2 and a half minutes into the fourth. Ten point lead cut down in a blink of an eye... Back2back nights, on the road, where Knicks are cremated in the FT disparity... Wish Knicks got home court calls once in a while at MSG.

    CHA second unit went on a 14-2 run early in the second... Then, again, in the early fourth go on a 13-3 run. Fisher? Hello?

    That may have been the worst attempt at a game winning shot in the history of basketball.

    You think the call last night was bad? Melo stepping out of bounds? Well, Thomas fought over a screen and the guy he is guarding puts shoulder into Lance, sending him into the screener, and they call the foul on NY and send CHA to the line. So, Batum shoves Thomas into Zeller, and it is a foul on Thomas. But... Zeller missed them both.


    man, good to have Affalo back.

    fisher has no clue... His play is to hand ball to Melo, and have Melo drive left and shoot a very long two point shot. Terrible and ugly all together. Hand to Calderon, who stands fir 10 seconds, throws a long pass... And Melo is atrocious.

    Mental lapse. We allow the backdoor play for an easy 2. Dumb sequence for us.

    Imagine that... A coach draws up a play. Lopez beat badly back door... Knicks give away one. All blame goes to a Fisher and Melo.
