New York Knicks Weekly Report: Kidd Saves the Day, Melo's Injury Scare
NYK Weekly Report: Kidd saves the day, Melo's injury scare
12/17/12 in NBA
Other notes: Chris Copeland started for Carmelo on Saturday and scored 11 points in 19 minutes, but he contributes nothing other than scoring... Rasheed Wallace will miss his second straight game Monday night with a troublesome foot, and the 38-year old likely won't play until it's 100% healthy... Raymond Felton averaged 7.0-19.3 from the field in last week's games - he's taking far too many contested shots for my liking... Tyson Chandler has averaged 20.5 points per game over the past two contests... Steve Novak is 8-12 from three over the past two games... JR Smith seemed to be coming out of his slump early in the week, but took a step back on Saturday when he shot 6-20... Only two players had a game with more than seven rebounds - Tyson Chandler and Jason Kidd - and they each did it only once... The Knicks were out-rebounded in all three games last week... Amar'e Stoudemire is set to practice this week, and didn't rule out playing on Friday or Sunday.
This week's Knicks games: Monday vs. HOU, Wednesday vs. BKN, Friday vs. CHI, Sunday vs, MIN.
