    Game Preview

    NEW YORK -- The off-court drama surrounding Carmelo Anthony continues, and so does the losing for the New York Knicks.

    The Knicks (20-27), who host the Charlotte Hornets on Friday, have lost 14 of 18 games since Christmas. New York has allowed at least 100 points in 16 of those contests, including a 103-95 defeat Wednesday at Dallas, where they scored just seven points in the last 6:57 of the game and recorded eight fourth-quarter turnovers.

    After saying he was committed to staying in New York a week ago, Anthony is once again the subject of trade talk. According to published reports, the Knicks approached the Cleveland Cavaliers to offer Anthony in exchange for Kevin Love, but Cleveland turned them down.

    Knicks president Phil Jackson is still shopping his star small forward, according to various media outlets.

    Anthony would have to approve any deal because of the no-trade clause in the contract he signed in the summer of 2014 that pays him $124 million over four years.

    "I really don't have a reaction to it," Anthony said regarding the speculation. "Until management comes to me and says something, then it's not something to look forward to or feed into it at this point. I really don't have a reaction to it."

    Anthony scored 30 points on Wednesday, making it four of his past seven games in which he dropped in at least 30 points. However, he failed to score in the fourth quarter for the second time in three games.
    Clearly the frustration to losing is mounting.

    "We were 14-10," said Knicks guard Brandon Jennings. "Now we're fighting to try and even not be last."

    The Hornets (23-23) lost their past two games to the Washington Wizards and Golden State Warriors both by 10 points. They may be without center Cody Zeller, who missed the defeat against Golden State on Wednesday because of a quadriceps contusion.

    "We did a lot of good things," Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said about the setback to the Warriors. "We were right there to win the game. To beat the elite teams, there's two things. If we're going to have 15 turnovers, it's going to be hard. That's the biggest thing.

    "The second thing is related to turnovers, it's fastbreak points. We lost in Houston for the same reason. We were good enough to win. But it doesn't matter who you play, you have to do things. Victory favors the team with the least amount of mistakes."

    Hornets power forward Frank Kaminsky was named one of 10 first- or second-season players on the United States squad for the Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star weekend in New Orleans next month.

    Kaminsky is in his second NBA season, after the Hornets selected him ninth overall out of Wisconsin in the 2015 draft. Kaminsky, who backs up Marvin Williams, is one of six Hornets to average at least 10 points a game. Kemba Walker leads the group at 23 points a game.

    The Knicks and Hornets met on back-to-back days in late November, with New York earning a 113-111 home win in overtime before falling 107-102 in Charlotte. Anthony scored 35 in the first game, while Walker scored 28 in the second.

    When Bellinelli beats you off the dribble for a layup you have defensive problems. The guy only has one gear.

    If Melo doesnt get traded I want to see both Holiday brothers in NY. I hope PJ is working on seeing if they can trade DRose, tough because his contract ends in a few months but you got to try.

    Now thats what I'm talking about. KP gets the pass at the top beyond the 3 pt line, fakes the shot, dribbles around the closer, the lane is wide open and he dunks it. Knicks need to design some alley oops for him with DRose kind if like Harden gives you a couple of times a game.

    He also stands up and answers all the questions. I want him to go to CLE or LAC and hope the best and that he excels in the playoffs.

    Nice dish by DRose on his drive to KP for an easy one. I'd like to see that more often.

    KP breaks his slump is the news of the game. 7-10 16 pts with a couple of 3s. Knicks lead 54-51 at the half.

    He gets a lot of hate around here but hes a solid citizen not only on the court but his off court charity stuff as well.

    Why do Jeff Horn got Quinn in his DNP dog-house .. Quinn Willy n Kuz belong on the court together in the same lineup. Its easy to find the solution why the Knicks are 3-7 in their last 10 games .. Jeff Horn refuse to put Quinn & Willy in the same lineup. Thas stupid!
    Jeff Horn is doing the same silly sh t as Rambis and Fisher.

    KP did not deserve 18 minute in the first half .. Melo did not deserve 17 minute in the first half.
    Especially after their 4th qtr. tired-performance the past 20 games.
    Knicks been COACHING to lose games like Dantoni's two seasons of TANKING !!!
