Knicks-Clippers Preview By ELI KABERON Posted Nov 26 2013 6:30PM When the season began, few expected the New York Knicks' biggest problem to be offense. Yet the Knicks visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night looking to avoid their worst losing streak of the Carmelo Anthony era, largely because of their inability to put the ball in the basket. Though Anthony ranks second in the....

The only thing I worry about is K Mart. I'm thinking Blake may have a tough time scoring on that guy. Otherwise I hope our guards torch the Knicks!

Hopefully the team comes out with energy and don't slack off because of the Knicks record. The Knicks are totally capable of beating us even if the record does not show it. However I'm sure we will win, Dudley comes out hot again!

True, so far we have had some shockers this year: Orlando, Lakers, and close calls from Sacramento.

I'm convinced he would play DJ big minutes either way. Though I get that the bench would be...different to say the least.

Yeah, I was thinking this one should be easy because of how the Knicks have been doing so far.. But like you say the team has to treat it like any other game and take the opposition seriously.

Man, everything says this should be an easy win for us. They are one of the worst teams in the league in rebounding. They are struggling big time. Even if Carmelo has a big game, who else can score? They don't have the defense of Tyson Chandler. Yet these are the kind of games I worry about.

We've had a very tough schedule up until now...we MUST take advantage of these situations where we face a bad team. You think OKC or SA would lose to these guys? Let's do this!

Trap game. This is one of those games we should easily take,but not take it easily. Carmelo could go off for 1000 points given the chance.

Yeah I'm actually intrigued by the Dudley/Melo match up. Melo can torch anyone, but Dudley has had to guard quicker SF's than Melo.

In 2 games against NY last year, Dudley averaged 23 points on 58% shooting (58% from 3).

Redick's had some success with NY also. In 4 games last year, he averaged 18.5 points on 51% shooting (46% from 3).

Hopefully that bodes well.

I am also intrigued by Bullock getting some minutes guarding Melo, the rook will learn something today for sure. Anyone remember last year how Grant Hill shut down Melo in the 4th? Kinda hoping Reggie could do that, but then again its just a dream for now.

Even if Melo gets by Dudley (he gets by everyone btw), Jared will send him towards the help defense. Whether DJ helps or not is a coin toss so far this year. He needs to consistently and actively protect the rim, something he can't do with his arms at his side.

I hope the Clippers play with the same intensity they had when they clobbered the Bulls. This should be a win, unless the Clips play down (like they've done before) to the Knicks' level. That would be disastrous.

We already know carmelo is going to kill DUDley, reggie bullock, and whoever else

they throw at him.

If you are the second leading scorer in the NBA you're pretty much unstoppable.

But unless Carmelo can score 103 points by himself it really doesn't matter.

Although I think Blake might be an interesting match up. I don't care what anyone says

I watched Blake put Lebron in check when we played the heat.

The only REAL threat I see is if the knicks just happen to start

hitting the 3's they have been missing all year. And for some reason

when guys are in shooting slumps they find their rhythm against the clippers.

I agree with @ClipperPostman. I really think Blake can play well against these sf that are larger than the average 3 but slightly smaller than the average 4. The only one I can see him have more trouble with is Durant because I believe he has a bit more lateral quickness and handles, where LeBron has more up and down speed like Blake. I've always thought Blake is an underrated perimeter defender for a pf. I also am worried about the three ball, but this might be a game where Clips start showing more defensive consistency.

I'll be at the game with my son, so I'm really hoping it's a great game ending in our favor.

This should be an easy game, but it seems like the Clipper have a tendency to play down to the competition. A fast start would be huge for us. We have to jump on the Knicks and keep them down.

Knicks might steal a win, if MWP goes around elbowing everyone.

I think the Big 3 of CP, Blake and DJ are all going to have BIG game tonight.

The Knicks really don't have anyone to counter DJ's athleticism and motor, if DJ come out with energy, we win easily.

Blake and CP are going to get theirs regardless of who's guarding them.

With certain players in the game ,like him or a couple of Mem guys I can think of,one we be better served wearing a hockey masks during the entire game to protect oneself. They sharpen their elbows before every game.

You all have said it and let's face it,this is one crappy team we are playing and it is just the kind of crappy team that gives us fits,if not a big "L". We have to play like this is the finals to beat a crappy team.

I hope Dudley and Bullock do a good job defending Carmelo. If we can contain him, we'll win this one easily.

Carmelo will get his points. I say let him. As long as we block out the rest of that squad. We need this W. Any easy wins need to be won

I do like easy wins because we get to rest our starters, but those games are also really boring.

Oh well, anything for postseason success.

Well channel 5 gave us alive reporter at home. The reason for her being there.....

The clipper at home?

The Knicks at Staples??

Melo, one off the premier scorers= in the league???

Nope. It was all bout Metta. The main question for him was the clips banners.

In his way he said he liked the idea. Loved Docs idea. He did call them selfies, but still, he liked the idea behind.
