Knicks hope to keep streak alive Vs Suns

Published Add your comment

Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks will be hoping that their 2014 turnaround continues as they welcome the Phoenix Suns to 'the garden' tonight.

The Knicks may still be two wins away from a possible eight seed, but they have won five out of six games since the turn of the year with marquee victories over the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.

Anthony's individual performances have shone in recent games as he won the eastern conference player of the week award. The forward notched 27 points per game in the past week, helping the Knicks to a 3-0 record over that time.

The visiting Suns have won just twice in 2014, although they are still in seventh position in the western conference. Phoenix's main problem has been shooting: They shot just 39.4% in their last loss, vs the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.

Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek rued his team's bad luck after Gerald Green hit a last second shot for the Pistons: "We play great defense, they lose the ball and they manage to bat it out to him and he hits the three. That's just a bad break for us."

Tyson Chandler and Beno Udrih are both questionable for New York however. The Suns are still missing Eric Bledsoe who had knee surgery and will be out for a further 4-6 weeks according to reports.
