New York Knicks take on Miami Heat after Felton fiasco

The New York Knicks will look to put their recent off-court distractions behind them as they travel to face LeBron James and the Miami Heat tonight.

Knicks player, Raymond Felton was arrested earlier this week on felony gun charges. Amidst a terrible season on the hardwood for the New York club this has come as a most unwelcome distraction.

Felton has averaged 10 points a game this season as the Knicks have fallen 15 games below .500 in the Eastern Conference.

“It’s hard to reflect on it at this point,’’ Carmelo Anthony said at the morning shootaround at AmericanAirlines Arena. “We’re rolling with the punches, man. I was laughing (because) somebody was just saying it’s Murphy’s Law. Everything that could go wrong for us is going wrong for us.’’

“All that said, we still got to play basketball,’’ he added. “Ray’s situation is his situation. He’s dealing with that. We support him. As far as this goes, we got to play basketball.’’

However it may be hard for the Knicks to bounce right back from this incident as they face a Miami Heat team that have won their last five and will welcome LeBron James back to the team tonight.

James suffered a broken nose during a recent game with the Oklahoma City Thunder and will don a protective mask during the game tonight. 

"I've been talking to Marvel Comics for the last couple of days, and DC Comics, to try to come up with one of the greatest masks of all time," James said with a chuckle Wednesday. "So we'll see what happens."

LeBron and co seem ready to extend their streak and pile more misery on the hapless Knicks this season.
