NYK Weekly Report: Melo gets stitches, JR saves the day, Chandler goes beast-mode

Other notes: Carmelo returned to action on Sunday to score 34 points... Jason Kidd is back in the starting lineup after missing time due to back spasms and seems fully recovered... Steve Novak is continuing his solid shooting, making 10 of 24 threes last week... JR Smith is definitely in one of his ruts, as he made only 19 of his 64 shots last week... Rasheed Wallace "tweaked his foot" on Saturday, and his status is uncertain for Tuesday's game against the Nets... Marcus Camby missed his fifth straight game on Sunday with plantar fasciitis... Amar'e Stoudemire looked "tremendous" in a 90-minute workout before Sunday's game, and is targeting a return to the court around Christmas.

This week's Knicks games: Tuesday @ BKN, Thursday vs. LAL, Saturday vs. CLE.

Knicks looked great until they played a team who actually defends. Mike Breen had the following quote about the Bulls during the broadcast Saturday night....'this is the best defense the Knicks have seen all year.'
