Thunder's Anthony set for return to MSG

Kristaps Porzingis Knicks Porzingis, Hornacek Won't Play Revisionist History Game with Carmelo Anthony
Frederick Owens | 16 December, 2017, 22:28

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Kristaps Porzingis #6 of the New York Knicks hug after the game on October 19, 2017 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. "Emotional as far as excited being back on that court", Anthony said on the eve of the game, via ESPN. "Play in front of those fans. Play in front of my family, my friends", Anthony said. But at the end of the day, it's business to me.

Porzingis said after the contest that he initially injured the knee in the first half.

New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina (11) controls the ball against Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie (8) during the second quarter at Barclays Center. He has one final tune-up before what likely will be an emotional game for him. Anthony exchanged pleasantries with familiar faces at the morning shootaround, but he chose not to speak to reporters about his Garden return until after the game. After two months of National Basketball Association play it seems like the Thunder aren't that much better off with Carmelo Anthony on their roster. "He knows the rims, knows the court, knows everything very well", said Hardaway, who is now sidelined with a stress injury in his left leg. But I'd be lying if I said I'm not ecstatic to be going back and playing there. "I'm just looking forward to that".

But it sure looks like it was the best thing for him and the Knicks.

Photo Kristaps Porzingis has been averaging 25.5 points a game for the Knicks this season. "He is also averaging 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocks a night behind 39.8 percent shooting from three-point range as one of the best players in the Eastern Conference and a matchup nightmare at 7'3" with ball-handling abilities. Meanwhile the Thunder, with Carmelo, Westbrook and George, are struggling to stay afloat. But it hasn't worked out that way yet. The players they have on the team are fitting in very well.

"They're willing to sacrifice and they know that they have to change", Donovan said Friday.

Instead, he told Xi that he expects China to play a greater role, according to one Cheong Wa Dae official. On Thursday night Moon, a left-leaning human rights lawyer, is due to meet China's leader, Xi Jinping.


"I think it will be an appreciation", Anthony added. It's challenging. It's new. "It was great times, it was bad times, but regardless, I always stuck with it, I always remained professional, I always came and did my job whether people liked me or not, so hopefully they recognize that".

"With it being something new, I really respect and admire their willingness to work through something that they really maybe have never done before in their careers. I am featured more, which is normal".

It's part of a larger reunion week for the Thunder. George was showered with boos throughout his IN return Wednesday that ended with a Thunder victory. And Anthony chuckled when asked if it is hard playing with a point guard who is also going 100 miles per hour.

Some have surmised that the Knicks are excelling because Anthony is no longer around.

A three-point play from Tyler Zeller three minutes into the third sliced the Knicks' lead to five points before back-to-back threes by Allen Crabbe and Spencer Dinwiddie made it a three-point game later in the period.

There's less reason to worry than in Anthony's final years in NY. "Coming back to the Garden is always a show", he said. When in doubt, we gave Melo the ball. "The same way Melo was there for me the other night".
