Porzingis has assumed the role of go-to scorer and playmaker for NY and has responded with 25.5 points per game. Of course, the Knicks won't take any chances with Porzingis, and they'll wait until Saturday's shootaround to give him a more thorough evaluation. The players they have on the team are fitting in very well. He is listed as day-to-day with knee soreness and is questionable for the matchup. The people there, I become one of them.
If memory serves me correctly, Anthony never wanted to leave the New York Knicks.
While all eyes will inevitably be on Anthony, the clash between the Knicks and Thunder will provide head coach Jeff Hornacek with an invaluable opportunity to start a potentially trying stretch on a high note. "It's not like I was there for a year or a season or two seasons". Emotional as far as excited being back on that court. This is something no fan would have believed leading into the season.
The Knicks expect a warm reception for their former team captain, who was traded to Oklahoma City in September for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a second-round pick. Stars, and Anthony are seemingly still adjusting to playing with one another.

"I think it will be an appreciation", Anthony added. That's life with ball-dominant Russell Westbrook, who posted as erratic a triple-double as possible with 27 points, 15 assists and 18 rebounds.
"We just couldn't make the plays down the stretch we needed to make", said Allen Crabbe, who shot just 1 for 8, including 1 for 7 from 3-point territory. Westbrook wants to play fast while George and in particular Anthony want to play at a slower pace. But the organization, particularly under Phil Jackson, didn't make anything easier. "But you never know".
Though Anthony left NY in unfavourable conditions, the star forward believes he still shares a bond with fervent basketball fans in the Big Apple.
Anthony played for the Knicks for seven seasons and helped bring a resurgence and energy to the franchise, albeit with inconsistent results. Jackson alternated between trying to win and trying to rebuild seemingly every season, and his insistence on running the triangle offense appeared out of touch in an era when National Basketball Association teams are pushing the pace.

He will continue as the country's president until 2019 when his second five-year term comes to an end. The first major engagement for the new leader will be the ANC anniversary celebrations on 8 January.
February will mark the seventh anniversary of Anthony being traded from the Denver Nuggets to the NY.
But then it was Carmelo's impatience and James Dolan's inexperience that prevented Anthony from having a bigger impact in NY. "I honestly don't have any more information about what is going on there, but it shouldn't be, hopefully, not too serious".
The third-year forward played through some discomfort later in the half but said he felt instability in the knee in the third quarter, so he removed himself from the game.
