New York Knicks @ Charlotte Bobcats
New York Knicks (12-4) travel south to face the Charlotte Bobcats (7-9) at 7 p.m. (ET)
The New York Knicks will begin their three game road stint tonight as they take on the Charlotte Bobcats at Time Warner Cable Arena. After suffering a close lost to the Brooklyn Nets, the Knicks have reeled off three straight wins. Their most recent victory over Phoenix came on the heels of a 34 point effort by Carmelo Anthony, the league’s second leading scorer.
With a 1.5 game lead over their Atlantic Division rival Brooklyn Nets, the Knicks know that each game counts. Head coach Mike Woodson understands that every team in the NBA is tough, and doesn’t expect his guys to overlook tonight’s matchup against the Charlotte Bobcats.
"Every game is not going to be a runaway or blowout for us and you have got to give them credit. They played hard, they were scrapping down the stretch and made a game out of it," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said about the Suns. "At the end of the night, we closed it out and was able to get the 'W.' That's what counts." –Sports Network
