Carmelo Anthony looking forward to MSG return

OKC Thunder TIP 3: Daily Knicks Ogden offers hot takes and insight

The victory sets up a crucial battle between two hot teams, as Oklahoma City has won three of four and six of its last eight games, while NY has won three straight and four of five.

Anthony's six years as the Knicks' superstar were complicated, mostly unaccomplished, and were nothing short of a circus. Not because of the quality of players, but how they fit into each teams roster.

Porzingis, who left Thursday's win over the Nets in the third quarter, is listed as questionable to face the Thunder on Saturday. The people there, I become one of them.

Anthony spent seven seasons in NY, and during that time he experienced his fair share of ups and downs.

Asked if he expected the MSG crowd to boo Anthony, who helped lead NY (15-13) to its first division title in 19 years in the 2012-2013 season and averaged almost 25 points per game in his six-plus-year stint with the Knicks, forward Lance Thomas said he was not anticipating jeers. I may grab dinner with someone from the Thunder, I worked with many of those guys over the years.

"I think it will be an appreciation", said Anthony. He played in 72 of the team's 82 games as a rookie, and he missed 16 more games a season ago.

Westbrook was a beast; he had 27 points, 18 rebounds and 15 assists. But I'd be lying if I said I'm not ecstatic to be going back and playing there.

If Porzingis plays, count on the usual raucous ovation when he's the final starter announced, the spot that previously belonged to Anthony.

When he agreed to waive his no-trade clause to join league MVP Russell Westbrook and George, most believed the Thunder formed a super team that could challenge the Warriors in the West.

Three months after the Knicks traded Anthony to Oklahoma City, their former All-Star is gone and quickly forgotten.

Carmelo Anthony plays a very specific style of basketball. Part of this change had to do with Phil Jackson's departure. "But you never know".

Anthony was traded two days before training camp opened for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and the Bulls' second-round pick.

Porzingis appears to be the superstar that NY has been searching for since Patrick Ewing was traded in 2000.

Anthony's time in NY ended on shaky terms in September.

Anthony agrees that ditching the triangle offense has been important and revealed that he discussed that with his Knicks teammates prior to the September deal with OKC. And if things don't work out with OKC, Anthony could always opt out of his contract in July and try to hook up with LeBron James...(although he'd be insane to turn down a guaranteed $28 million).

But then it was Carmelo's impatience and James Dolan's inexperience that prevented Anthony from having a bigger impact in NY. "But without him this year I've had more of an opportunity". I want to win because we have a chance to sweep this road trip. "Late in the game we said, 'That's their run.' It was a battle".
