Kristaps Porzingis will not play in Carmelo Anthony's MSG homecoming

And what of the reception for Anthony, who led the Knicks to three straight playoff appearances after arriving in 2011, led the league in scoring when they won 54 games and a division championship in 2013, and always made it clear that he loved NY and didn't want to go? And his stance toward Anthony last season angered teammates who appreciated the veteran's efforts on and off the court. "So it's more about being cautious", Porzingis said. The Thunder had had plenty of inconsistency this season even on normal rest, so this could be a huge letdown spot especially after getting the win last night.

There's less reason to worry than in Anthony's final years in NY.

Anthony, who forced a trade to the Knicks in 2011, always said he wanted to end his career with them. "That takes some time, but their unselfishness and the way they're trying to work together to me I couldn't be any more pleased and happy with that".

NY will attempt to build on their 3 game win streak after their victory over the Brooklyn Nets, 111 - 104; Lee: 18 of 27 points in second half.

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 want to win because we have a chance to sweep this road trip.

"I think it'll be an appreciation".

Oklahoma City is 2-6 ATS in its last eight meetings in NY.

Anthony, 33, returns averaging 18 points per game with the Thunder this season. "He's coming back home".

"Well obviously, I would love to have had him here to continue to learn from him", Porzingis said.

Porzingis is the NBA's eighth-leading scorer, averaging 25.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks, and is a key reason why the Knicks enter Saturday with a 15-13 record. Anthony said he has stayed in touch with a number of players on the team, but he hasn't been tracking their every game. The players they have on the team are fitting in very well.

"I felt my knee buckle a little bit, and I felt a little pain there. We all got to move on", he said when asked if he's surprised the Knicks are over.500. I always remained professional. Enes Kanter is giving them 13.4 points and 10.3 rebounds a game as the starting center while providing positivity that for years rarely existed in the home locker room.

Marc Berman of The New York Post spoke with several Knicks players regarding the homecoming. I came and did my job whether they liked it or not.
