"I think it will be an appreciation", said Anthony.

Carmelo Anthony is returning to NY.

Porzingis has something else Anthony doesn't: a winning record.

The New York Knicks announced forward Kristaps Porzingis will miss Saturday's game against Carmelo Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder with a knee injury.

Anthony said after a triple-overtime victory in Philadelphia on Friday that he expected a fun night in NY. "I think that change sometimes is hard".

"It's not like I was there for a year or two seasons", he said. I spent a lot of time there. "There was great times, there was bad times". Regardless, I stuck with it. But that will always be a part of me. I always came and did my job whether people liked that or not. "Hopefully they'll recognize that". "I am featured more, which is normal".

Kristaps Porzingis left in the third quarter of the Knicks' 111-104 victory over the Nets at Barclays Center with what the team called a sore left knee, leaving them hoping that the injury to their center isn't serious.

This has potential to be an error-filled game for the offense of NY.

As such, Chicago will undoubtedly be looking to go on the road and usurp this Detroit team. Brown isn't the first referee to have to leave the field this season.


It's been a rough start for Anthony and the Thunder.

After escaping Philadelphia with a triple overtime win Saturday, the Thunder flew to NY overnight to prepare for the Knicks. "I know he wants to win". There does not appear to be a trend for Knicks games in regards to the total, as there has been an even split between games finishing over and under.

On the season, his former team is over-achieving a bit (15-13), holding onto the eighth seed. He said Thursday that he would be examined by the team's medical staff Friday.

But new president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry found a trade the next day and it's been a good one for the Knicks.

The Thunder are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 road games, 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 Saturday games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Doug McDermott is bringing another 8.5 points a night off the bench. With a list narrowed down to only a few teams, Anthony waived his no-trade clause to accept a deal to the Thunder.

Oklahoma City arrived with a middling 14-14 mark, still adjusting to adding All-Stars Anthony and Paul George to reigning league MVP Russell Westbrook. "I'm standing. It's just them being cautious". "I am anxious about the Knicks". And his stance toward Anthony last season angered teammates who appreciated the veteran's efforts on and off the court.

Porzingis told reporters on Thursday he had left the game after his knee began to feel unstable. He looks happy after he was so disillusioned by the atmosphere under Jackson that he blew off his exit meeting last spring. "So it's more about being cautious", Porzingis said. "Guys are trying to be unselfish and figure this thing out and we're sticking with it".
