New York Knicks Vs. the Charlotte Bobcats: Game 17 Preview

Carmelo Anthony is coming to town on Wednesday night, and for the struggling Bobcats thats the last thing they want to hear. The Knicks have won three straight games, and are 12-4 on the young season.

The Knicks have scored over a hundred points in seven of their last eight games, and Carmelo Anthony has scored 29 or more in six of those eight games.

Carmelo for the season is averaging 26.6 ppg, and has played exceptionally well so far this season. However, the Knicks are not 12-4 all because of Carmelo. Raymond Felton, Tyson Chandler, and J. R. Smith are all huge contributors for this team. Jason Kidd and Rasheed Wallace have been nice veteran presences, and add a stability the Knicks have been looking for the last couple years.

For the Bobcats, well, their going to have to score…a lot if they want to stay in this game. Ben Gordon and Kemba Walker will both need to continue to have hot hands, while Ramon Session and Byron Mullens will need to get back on track after struggling against the Trailblazers.

The Bobcat have struggled to put away teams as of late, and this has led to the Bobcats blowing a couple fourth quarter leads. If the Bobcats want to win this game they will need to come out firing on all cylinders, and maintain that intensity throughout the game. Oh, and another huge dunk from Byron Mullens wouldn’t hurt either.

The Bobcats face the Knicks Wednesday at 7 p. m. at Time Warner Cable Arena
