The Knicks have showed some serious signs of improvement this season, but look to rebound from one of their worst losses on the season when they welcome in the Mavs on Monday.
New York was smacked around by the Bucks in what eventually was a 106-91 defeat.
The Mavericks had no problems on Sunday as they knocked around the Wizards 116-104.
The Mavericks have struggled all season long from shooting behind the arc.
Dallas went into Sunday’s game shooting just 30.9% from 3 point range, which ranked 28th in the league. They certainly didn’t show that though in the win over Washington as the Mavs made 16 of 31 attempted 3’s.
Wesley Matthews tied a Mavs franchise record with 10 of those coming from him. Matthews finished with 36 points, which matched a career high for him.
PF Dirk Nowitzki looks to be in store for a big game as he has had a lot of success versus the Knicks. Nowitzki has averaged 24.1 points per game over 30 games against the Knicks.
G J.J. Barea is expected to be OUT once again on Monday. Barea has missed 5 straight games due to a right ankle sprain.
Derek Fisher made it clear heading into the Knicks game with the Bucks, he wasn’t satisfied with where the Knicks were at.
He certainly couldn’t be happy after their poor performance as New York was blasted by the Bucks 106-91 on Saturday. Fisher was so distraught with the way the starters were playing, especially in the 2nd half, that he gave his reserves a majority of the 2nd half time.
One of those bench guys, Lance Thomas, has proven to be a nice producer off the bench. Over a 4 game span, Thomas has averaged 12.8 points and shot over 50% from the field.
Thomas had 17 in the loss to Milwaukee and hit a pair of 3 point shots.
Look for Melo to try and step his game up inside MSG. Through 10 games at home, Anthony is shooting 38.7%.
