The Knicks, as usual, made a lot of noise in the offseason when they decided not to re-sign Jeremy Lin. Instead, they brought in Jason Kidd and brought back Raymond Felton to replace him. They also signed Ronnie Brewer (10.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg) and re-signed J.R. Smith, their second leading scorer (17.5 ppg). They enter the game with a perfect 4-0 record.
New York is led by Carmelo Anthony, who is averaging 27.3 points points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Jameer Nelson (hamstring, groin) is listed as a game time decision. If he can't go, E'Twaun Moore will again start in his place.
