Matchup to Watch
Carmelo Anthony vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Anthony has bullish strength and a gift for scoring all over the court. This will be quite the test for the rookie small forward from Kentucky.
• The Knicks enter this game well rested; they haven’t played since a noon home date with Phoenix on Sunday.
• Knicks point guard Raymond Felton, an ex-Bobcat, has a badly bruised left thumb suffered against the Suns, but he is expected to play.
• The Knicks started the season without Amare Stoudemire, out with a knee injury. He has volunteered to play off the bench upon his return.
• The Bobcats have won nine of 15 home games against the Knicks.
• Ex-Bobcat Tyson Chandler, now New York’s center, was defensive player of the year last season.
