New York vs. San Antonio
The New York Knicks and the San Antonio Spurs hook up for their last meeting of the season tonight at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks are slowly integrating Amare Stoudemire back into the line up and adjusting to life without Raymond Felton. Fortunately Carmelo Anthony is healthy and more than willing to carry New York on his back. Tim Duncan and the Spurs will put up a good fight, but Carmelo and the Knicks will win a close one.
Denver vs. Minnesota
When the Denver Nuggets traded Carmelo Anthony 2 seasons ago George Karl said they were a better team going forward. I don't know about all that, but when Denver takes on the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight they will have won 7 of their last 10 games. Minnesota is missing the services of Ricky Rubio, so I expect Denver to win in a rout.
