Matchup to Watch
Kemba Walker vs. Jose Calderon: Walker has been on quite a roll of late and he’s always played well in Madison Square Garden, his hometown arena.
• After trading away Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith for unguaranteed contracts the Knicks appear to be in Philadelphia 76ers-like tank mode.
• Carmelo Anthony has been out with a knee injury and it’s possible the Knicks will shut him down for the season.
• The Hornets lost early this season in New York after a controversial five-second in-bounds violation late in the game.
• The Hornets don’t play many true day games. They have another Jan. 19 at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
