The New York Knicks host the Portland Trail Blazers at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night looking to boost their post-season hopes with a win.
With a 19-29 record so far this season, the Knicks are flirting with the possibility of missing out on the playoffs, and despite the best efforts of Carmelo Anthony they continue to lack the consistency required to break into the top eight of the Eastern Conference.
Anthony is averaging 25.8 point per game this season, and he may well be required to put on another inspirational performance as the Knicks look to stop the Blazers from picking up a much-needed road win.
Having started the season in strong fashion, Portland have seen their offense averages fall in recent weeks as they look to avoid a fifth straight road loss.
Damian Lillard, Wesley Matthews and LaMarcus Aldridge are all dropping in terms of efficiency from beyond the arc and they will need to get their scoring stroke back if they are to silence the Garden.
Lillard and Aldridge have been selected for the All-Star game in New Orleans on February 16, with the latter averaging 22.8 points per game and 9.3 rebounds per game this year.
At 34-14, the Trail Blazers have enjoyed a good season up to this point, but coach Terry Stotts will be eager to see his team respond to adversity and get their campaign back on track with a strong push to finish the season as high as possible in the Western Conference.
It promises to be an exciting clash if both teams are on song, as they have the offensive weapons to make this a high-scoring affair.
